Keeping in thumping in 2013 with a track which fits the early 2000 New York underground Hip Hop sound of Rawkus Records, German producer Terpentilo provides he head-nod on his remix of "7xl". If you miss the sound of independent New York Hip Hop of this era, enjoy and refresh your ears as Terp revives a distinct sound. Drums bang against the inspiring sound of a piano loop to carry the flows of Puba, Sadat and Menelik for a remix which projects a light vibe similar to the original.

The Trinity of Sadat X, A.G. and DJ Jab revive a funky head-nodder by the late, great J-Dilla to convey inspirational messages and a mature outlook upon life on "Sunshine". The vibe of this song is reminiscent of the feel you might of heard on Brand Nubian's debut LP where you hear the MC project their positive view of the world around them over a loop. It carries a similar vibe of positivity and social awareness as the original "Sunshine" by Brand Nubian with Janelle Collins on vocals to add the soulful touch of a female vocalist.

Download/Stream - The Trinity Project “Sunshine” [prod. by J Dilla]
The first official release from The Trinity Project, the single features production from James DeWitt Yancey aka J Dilla- the late legendary Detroit musician. The Jay Dee instrumental was purchased from the J Dilla Foundation and was being saved for a special project. According to DJ Jab, The Trinity Project was it.
Words from DJ Jab of The Trinity/Fat Beats Records:
"I'm excited about this track as it features a J Dilla beat and he is the biggest producer on the record. The clear 7" also includes a tribute track to Grandmaster Roc Raida who is another Hip-Hop legend that I had the honor of working with at Fat Beats. For authentic Hip-Hop heads there is nothing else like it... Dilla on one side of the vinyl and Raida on the other by incorporating "Beats for Jugglers" for the tribute.
Walking on a Razor pt 2 featuring Sadat x and Shabaam Sahdeeq is the second Single taken from Lewis Parker's forthcoming album "The Glass Ceiling".

These two brothers are examples of how to grow gradually with Hip Hop, a value which I think is especially important in this current digital age where fast consumption of music and media is encouraged. J Rawls & Sadat X explain exactly how they combined to record the first single "Face It" off Rawls' album "The Hip Hop Affect" a song which expresses many positive values of life. They then give a brief idea of how Hip Hop has provided a wealth of opportunities which aren't necessarily financial, but have more to do with gaining memorable experiences of life.
Go get "The Hip Hop Affect" by J Rawls, now available in stores and online.
Teaching the youth through our experience is an important part of life, especially if you're from the ghetto where resources are more limited. J Rawls teams up with two important figures of blessing the Hip Hop world with daily bread through knowledge, wisdom and understanding: Sadat X and Wise Intelligent. This video was shot right in my neighborhood of Harlem, in the 125 th street area.

Croatian producer Koolade teams up with The 'Datfather and The Best Producer On The Mic for a soulful treat. "The Makings" uses the same sample as "The Joy" by Pete Rock, Kanye and Jay-Z, but with a different feel and theme in the writing which makes it an original song in itself. Thanks to Blackout Hip Hop for the audio.
