Regular Hip-Hop Kings readers will be very familiar with the name WEB after a series of previous (and ongoing) freestyles as part of his “Open Bar Season” with Kevin Nottingham.

I’m a big fan of both artists, so check out the music and drop comments in the usual fashion. You can listen to WEB and I.D.e.A – Waiting To Exhale on the player below.

This is a fantastic continuation of Neu Beginin and Protostar’s “Music Monday Series” with a new track titled Drop The Game. Choze and Voice’s cover of Lil Wayne‘s Drop The World is another fine example of an artist putting an original banger to shame. I’ve been told to look out for lots more new music in the forthcoming weeks, with new projects from Tru Quality which is coming soon. You can listen to Choze x Voice – Drop The Game on the player below.
