Deeply Rooted is bringing HipHop heads another brand new series. This focuses on new content that hasn’t yet been reviewed on this site. The intent here is to just let the heads know that they shouldn’t be sleeping on some dope projects. Updates may come frequently so peep the first couple and come back to check soon after.
First off is KBurns and Vinyl Villain‘s collab EP Infamous Villains. The 4-track EP features Magno Garcia, SmooVth, and Team Fame Gvng alum GkFetty. The production on the album features Villain’s signature cinematic vision and high quality craftsmanship on every track. Both of the tracks with features really provide some unique rhymes and flows over Villain’s beats. Trevor Lang contributes the dope cover art. KBurns continues his development as an emcee with a singular voice and sound, making some of his best work to date.

Limited release on Vinyl today- Do not sleep on that!
Big Kahuna OG brings us Sky Chryme, a full-length LP full of excellent production from all the Mutant Academy team producers and a few others. Big Kahuna OG continues to make some dope HipHop, using his excellent ear for beats and his witty lines, keeping listeners on their toes. A couple standout tracks: “Hush Money” produced by Foisey is a beautiful sample and Kahuna dismantles the track singlehandedly. “Bulls Vs Lakers” feat Mars and produced by Kahuna’s partner in chryme and frequent collaborator, Graymatter, who is an extremely talented producer making some of the best beats in HipHop the last few years.

Producer Bass Reevez drops his album Kaffir featuring most of the young dope emcees killing shit currently. The album is full of boom bap bangers. The samples are dope and the project is mixed well. The album features Rome Streetz, Sauce Heist, Jamal Gasol, AnkhleJohn, Ty Da Dale, Nowaah The Flood, Baby Mane, KBurns, FastLife and Sleep Sinatra. All the emcees bring their grimy or smooth flows to this quietly exceptional album. Although every track is on-point, there are a couple standouts for me. “The Whiztle” featuring Rome Streetz and Sauce Heist showcase the emcees gritty NY street raps. “Haile Selassie” feat AnkhleJohn shows Ankh a bit less vicious, but no less potent. Arrogant Aromas features KBurns, Ty Da Dale and FastLife at their best. On “Mind Hunter” Sleep Sinatra rounds out the album with his smooth flow over a murky track.
