Dres of the legendary Hip-Hop outfit Black Sheep has announced plans to release a full length album titled “From The Black Pool of Genius” on April 6th 2010. In an effort to keep the fans in the know, Dres previously released the five track EP “From The Black Pool of Genius: The Prelude” to a wave of celebration in December. The EP was a good representation of what’s to come from the album. The album from Dres will feature guest appearances from AZ, Rhymefest and Jean Grear, with production from The Beatnuts amongst many others. I will post the official artwork and track listing for Dres – From The Black Pool of Genius” when it becomes available.

Thanks once again to Khal over at Rock The Dub for introducing me to Mic Wilson. Here is fifty bars (as 50 Cent would say, of pain) as Mic Wilson demonstrates his abilities to rip a beat to pieces. David Robinson (50 bars) is a little taster of what fans can expect to hear on Mic Wilson‘s “Square One – My Radio” which is the upcoming mixtape which will be available Mid-March. You can listen to Mic Wilson – David Robinson (5o Bars) on the player below.
Immediately after posting the JustNice leak called “The Upperhand” I have also received the second leak from the Respect Earned 2 – The Remixes mixape from Choze and JustNice called “Fear”. This particular track features Choze and QuESt, who obviously worked together on the original mixtape of “Respect Earned”. Choze continues to release frequent music after the mixtape “Talentine” on Valentine’s Day, and I’m sure more music is to follow shortly. You can listen to Choze x QuESt – Fear on the player below.
