[Audio] Termanology - Circulate (100 Bars)




Termanology has been on a grind in 2008, in which he released his debut album, Politics As Usual, released earlier this year, and followed it up with a spot on Meth & Redman's "Still High Tour."

2009 will be equally busy for Termanology, with several projects in the works. First off he will be releasing a tribute mixtape entitled, If Heaven Was a Mile Away (A Tribute to J Dilla), in which he goes in over some classic Dilla production. The tape will be available 1/1/09 exclusively through TermanologyMusic.com.

The next project is a collabo album with producer Statik Selektah. The two formed a group titled "1982" and their album will be out sometime next year. I have included the first single off both tapes, and look forward to hearing more from Termanology in '09.

Charles Hamilton vs. Soulja Boy



So it looks like there's some tensions growing between Hamilton and Soulja Boy. The two first exchanged some words via video, and now Hamilton has released two tracks aimed at Soulja Boy. Personally, I'm not going to label this beef because Hamilton has already denounced any beef with Soulja Boy on his blog and for there to be beef, Soulja Boy would have to respond and we all know he's not gonna make a diss track at Hamilton. As we all know beef tends to be faked these days in order to increase album sales and gain attention for an upcoming project. In this case both artists either dropped or are dropping an album this month, so this could be true. Anyway, check out Soulja Boy's original video response that started this fuckery, followed up by Hamilton's response video and diss tracks, and decided for yourself. Also for an explanation from Charles Hamilton check out his blog here.

Eminem Talks New Album, Book
"Me and Dre are back in the lab like the old days, man," Eminem says. "Just him banging away on tracks and me getting that little spark that makes me write to it. I don't have chemistry like that with anyone else as far as producers go -- not even close. Dre will end up producing the majority of the tracks on Relapse.' We are up to our old mischievous ways ... let's just leave it at that."

Paul Wall Working on New Album, Fast Life

[Audio] Freeway - Month of Madness




As Young Chris finishes up his 30 Verses/30 Days series, fellow State Property member Freeway has decided to start his own series. Starting today (Dec. 1st), he will drop a new song each day for 30 days. The first song is produced by MMP and is titled "Month of Madness." I've always been a fan of Freeway and I'm happy to see he's got himself on a consistent grind these days. Be sure to check back each day this month for a new Freeway joint.
