This site has been behind RAtheMC for a good time now and it’s amazing to see how far she has come. She’s by far my favorite female rapper and shows great musical breadth. RA can go from smooth melodies to a hard, no-holding-back flow in an instant and works each end naturally, so I suggest you get acquainted if you haven’t yet. “Intoxicated” will be off of her debut album, Heart Of A Champion, and shows off that broadness I just mentioned. RA spits about coming up in DC and DC itself, and brings some vivid lines backed by authentic emotion. The beat is also one of the smoothest things I’ve heard all summer, allowing her singing voice to glide on top of it. Check out her Trending Topics mixtape while you’re at it and don’t sleep.

Back to business for me, I have been irregular with the posts for a little bit but it is time to recommit myself to it. I will start with this song too that has been massively slept on by the blogs and I am not sure why but I will happily deliver it to you all. RA is one of my favorite artists I have come across during the couple of years this site has been up and this one showcases her message and lyrical ability that gives hope to the legit female MCs. I have no idea what the placement is for the track but my fingers are crossed for a new project.

Damn I didn’t even know about this mixtape until RA put it up on her blog the other day. The tape consists of a bunch of DMV underground artists like RA, Nando and Badio and more artists that I haven’t heard of but am willing to give a shot. RA destroys the mic on this one too and comes with a ferocious flow that few rappers of any gender could match. When she goes in you can hear the passion oozing from the mic that I haven’t heard before from many artists. Shouts to her too for the recently announced signing with Studio 43 too, it is well deserved.
EDIT: I was initially going to only post the song above featuring RAtheMC and K-Beta called “Same As We Ever Was” but the mixtape dropped before the post.
Man was I wrong to think that they might be sampling the Talking Heads’ song “Same As It Ever Was”, it wasn’t even close. Thad drops his second single from his project and he brings along some fellow DMVers for the ride. His first song “Owww” was hot according to DJBooth and will have to scoop it up and take a listen for myself. This is from his mixtape dropping today called Target Practice and I will put that link up here whenever I get it. Grab the tape, song and tracklist all below the break.
What’s up everybody and I hope all our US readers had a good President’s/Valentine’s Day weekend and per usual it is time to get back to work. A couple weeks ago the DMV producer Judah released an instrumental tape focused around the theme of Kanye’s girlfriend, Amber Rose. DMV spitters RAtheMC (whose song “Brenda” is above) and Tabi Bonney each picked a song and remixed them by adding vocals and RA even made the typically short songs from the project longer. The tape initially slipped through the cracks here at B&B but to rectify the situation we are posting these songs as well as the tape download below the break.
It’s been an internet minute since we heard from RA but seeing as she is my favorite female artist in the game you know just about anything she does will get put up on B&B. This is a quick freestyle over a Kanye beat as she describes below.
Personally, I don’t and have never liked Keyshia in the least but I am glad to hear someone doing something worthwhile over it.
First we gave you the Jams but now it is time for the hip-hop gems. I said in the previous post that the past couple days I came up with the idea to post a few mixes that sum up my year in music. These joints are all songs that were some of the more solid underground songs that I listened to this past year and deserve more shine. A number of my favorite new artists are on there and this is another mix that is pretty damn complete. Look out for our final installment of rock songs which should drop over the next couple days. Link and tracklist are below the break and everyone have a happy and safe New Year!
Sorry for the lack of posts but the internet is breaking down at my apartment and I am in the process of trying to fix it. Here is the latest from RA, a video for her song off of her latest Trending Topics mixtape and it has some cool effects. Judah is on the beat too which I was really feeling, probably because it has a piano loop lol. Back to trying to fix my internet, in the meantime grab Trending Topics if you like this song.
I need to take a break after typing out that title, it easily wins for longest title of the year. Seriously though, it is time to play a little bit of catch up. I didn’t have the opportunity to post at all this morning due to a long night celebrating my birthday but now is the time to make up for it. This song is off of J-Scrilla’s Culture of Honor album so get it if you support the DMV movement because this song alone is bringing half of the artists haha.
The best female rapper out right now is back with a new song and it isn’t from her recent release Trending Topics. I’m not even going to mess around anymore and am just going to call it as I see it, she is the best female rapper out right now and one of the best (if not the best) I have ever heard. After a little bit of a hiatus it is good to see RA coming back with a lot of new music, it’s nice to know an artist was working instead of loafing while as a fan you awaited some more tunes. Click on the name of the tape above if you don’t already have it, it is another must have if your into the underground scene and not even just in the DMV.
