Chopped Herring: CHGONE01 ft. Various Artists

This dope Philly project goes back to a single release on Libra Records in 1994 called "Chaotic Frequency". Two of the three member were Cas and J-Rock who found a spot on the famous South Street in Philly. 

Since Cas focused on MCing he started with beat making and reconnected with DJ Sat One. They took advantage of their location and started recording with a bunch of the cats who used to hang around that area. "Nasty English" was a Philly-based graf magazine which DJ Sat One and the writer PRAZE started and the fellas incorporated that name into the cassette-only compilation "The Genesis of Nasty English" which was dropped in small numbers and sold in local stores and by hand.

Chopped Herring: CH$AMHILL01 ft. $amhill

To be honest the artist "Samhill" is completely new to me so I leave you with the information Chopped Herring provided with this release:

"$amhill is from the Morrisainia section of the South Bronx.
He was born and raised in the Daniel Webster projects by way of Boston Rd, by way of Forest projects. He first experienced Hip Hop culture as a little child as it blossomed in the early 1980's. His earliest memory was picking up and reading the info on a record purchased by his older brother - that record was "Sucker M.C's" by Run Dmc. He is from the same block as the late, great Tim Dog and came up in the same community as Ultramagnetic M.C's. 

Hip Hop has been embedded in $amhill from an early. He began rapping at 14, as a suggestion by friends on 167th st & Boston Rd. Rapping became a reality the day he saw Show of Showbiz & A.G. on Boston Rd right after seeing him on Video Music Box. $amhill credits his immense passion for hip hop to Show & A.G. who had a severe influence on his career..."

Tommy Boy: ft. Ghostface Killah

If it comes to a release of one of the core member from the almighty Wu-Tang Clan it can be no question of a limited edition in a traditional sense but if you get a cool extra with your pre-order and the sound is dope, the release is definitely something for the Stitch By Stitch blogspot.

In the last few years I passed on most Wu-Tang releases because I still expect every release has to have the traditional Shaolin sound. Well call me antiquated but thats what I still expect from Wu-Tang affiliated album that sounds dope.

Ghostface Killah is one of those who are good for a dope album and with "36 Seasons" he proves this thesis again. The exclusive Get On Down vinyl release also comes with a 24 page booklet. For the beats Brooklyn's production team "The Revelations" take responsibility. Guest vocals come from AZ, Kool G Rap, Pharoahe Monch, Kandace Springs and Rell & Tre Williams.

A: The Battlefield
A: Love Don't Live Here No More
A: Here I Go Again
A: Loyalty
A: It's A Thin Line Between Love And Hate
A: The Dogs of War
A: Emergency Procedure
B: Double Cross
B: Bamboo's Lament
B: Pieces To The Puzzle

B: Blood In The Streets

Diggers With Gratitude: DWG-020 ft. IBM Nation

In January 2013 ended one of the most spectacular ebay auctions for a hip-hop item. It was about the demo tape of IBM Nation that sold for 1.315 US$ to an anonym bidder.

IBM Nation (Philly) dropped a random rap vinyl EP back in 1990. The original record is a very rare collectors item. The guys from Diggers With Gratitude finally make it happen that the IBM Nation fast rap tracks get played on more turntables in the future.

In a limited edition of 200 copies DWG will drop the vinyl on 17th November on green and blue  splatter wax. The Brainiac E.P. contains the 4 original tracks from the debut 12" plus the two previously unreleased tracks from the demo tape.

A: Brainiac
A: Original Black Man
A: Rockin' Music*
B: I'm A Do What I Like
B: This Is For The Nation
B: Down With The Family*

Ill Adrenaline: IAR-029 ft. uMaNg

The discography of uMaNg shows three previous released albums. The debut album "First Impression came in 2011 in collaboration with Kick Back followed by "Latest Impression". Both came on CDr only.

Last year uMaNg gave his vinyl release debut via Chopped Herring Records called "The Revisited EP". New Jersey originated emcee uMaNg, reunites with Swedish producer B.B.Z. Darney to release "The Black Rose Certificate." on Ill Adrenaline Records.

"Over the course of 14 tracks, the duo sonically stick to their traditional "boom-bap" roots, whilst also bringing sounds that range from "darker" to "aggressive", to even more "melancholic". The production B.B.Z. Darney showcases is heavier, more conceptual than previous releases. uMaNg has been notable throughout his career for being a clever & witty, punchline heavy emcee. While staying true to his stylings on the mic, he gets deeper & more transparent than past albums have suggested. For every braggadocious track, there is another where the Jersey emcee bares his soul through the pen, opening up about past discretions, family HIStory, amongst other topics on the emcee's mind. Also unlike "Lasting Impressions" & "The Revisited", that found the duo being the lone contributors to their works alongside the legendary DJ Grazzhoppa, they now bring along with them close collaborators as well as in-label artists. The album features tracks from the likes of Brick City veteran and close Artifacts affiliate Beneficence, Purpose of the Tragic Allies camp, close friends HexOne & Tek-nition of the critically acclaimed duo Epidemic, and Hashfinger to lend their talents and further enhance the album's disposition."
