eMC - Charly Murphie -
On May 20th, eMC — the group made up of Masta Ace, Stricklin, Punchline and Wordsworth — are releasing a new EP, The Turning Point. While they put the final touches on the project, we’re blessed with a new single. Check out “Charly Murphie” below.
Two weeks from today Detroit producer Apollo Brown will be releasing his newest instrumental soundtrack Thirty Eight. The sound falls somewhere between the end of 70s heroin and the beginning of 80s crack, with all the cigarette burns and scratches intact. The technicolor journey begins today with a three track collection of instrumentals from the project that Apollo has titled Cigarette Burns EP.

Been working on this list for quite some time along with my top producers’ list. Well, here’s what I came up with. I’d put any one of these dudes against any one else in the game right now and they will get crushed. These guys go hard everytime they pick up a mic and if you don’t agree, you’re too far gone to save…..
