3 new tracks from KRS-One & Buckshot’s Survival Skills leaked today, each with a nice featured artist (Slug, Immortal Technique, and Talib). This one popped out first to me because it’s been a while since I’ve seen Immortal’s name anywhere. There were a few guys in my grade back in elementary school that were really feeling Immortal, and I can’t blame them. Most people who have heard of him know him through the song “Dance With The Devil”, but he’s got alot of other great tracks (go search up “Obnoxious”, it’s hilarious). Leave it to the class master and Buckshot to feature one of the underground’s most talented and most respected. All three rappers are on point with this track, with Immortal getting his shine and KRS-One killing the end. Shouts to HIF. Download here.
I feel like I just went to hip-hop school after hearing this song. I normally feel like after hearing KRS-One but Buckshot also channels that same type of rhyming and keeps it real with how they feel about rap today. This song is off of their upcoming album called Survival Skills dropping August 25th. After hearing this track I think it will be a good album but if you’re not convinced yet know that they have guest features lined up from Talib Kweli, Mary J. and K’Naan which should help push you over the edge.

K’Naan is really taking hip-hop to even more international levels by using such different types of music for his beats. The production for this song is as good as it gets, instead of sampling foreign songs like other rappers in the past he decides to make world music. It’s also cool to see people like Mos and Chali who have already established themselves in the game co-signing such a unique artist. Troubador is out Feb. 24th so go get it and click the link below for K’Naan and Buckshot featured in a K-Salaam & Beatnick song called “In Jamaica”.
I had been meaning to post a K’Naan song for a while and then I got this song with Buckshot over the weekend and knew it was going up. K-Salaam and Beatnick produce this reggae-infused track while the two artists each get a verse. For those who don’t know, K’Naan is originally from Somalia and he definitely has a unique sound and flow that goes well with the Caribbean inspired production and track. “In Jamaica” is off of K-Salaam and Beatnick’s free digital album The Streets Have No Name.
