Freeway, Neef Buck, Young Chris, Memphis Bleek, Peedi Crakk - "Roc Reloaded" | New Music

Freeway, Neef Buck, Young Chris, Peedi Crakk and Memphis Bleek team up to release a Jake One-produced posse cut entitled "Roc Reloaded."

All five emcees were formerly members of Roc-A-Fella, which was founded by Jay-Z and Damon Dash. Freeway began his career with the label for his first two albums. Neef Buck and Young Chris formed the Young Gunz, with their only two studio albums to date released on the label in 2004 and 2005 respectively. Memphis Bleek's first four albums moved through Roc-A-Fella and finally, Peedi Crakk was a member of rap group State Property, also signed to the ROC.

Now that the label is defunct, it is interesting to hear these four teaming up together again without Jay's involvement, with all five emcees sounding hungry as they deliver sharp verses in succession, fueled by Jake One's cinematic production and set to feature on the Philly emcee’s upcoming Black Santa EP, which drops on December 24th. Listen below.

Mr. MFN eXquire - "F*ck 1 Time" | Music Video

While most New Yorkers were cowering in their homes in the midst of Hurricane Sandy, Mr. MFN eXquire was shooting this newly released video for "F*ck 1 time," directed by Shane Annas.

Filmed in darkness on the barren streets of New York, this video provides a creepy snapshot of a city at the mercy of nature while eXquire delivers a sample of his signature style, explicit lyrics with emphatic delivery. Flickering lights, cop cars, dead animals and an almost entirely dark New York City skyline serve as stark reminders of just how hard the New York area was hit.

This song was originally on the Man in the High Castle mixtape, which released in October, with eXquire currently working on his crew compilation, The Passion Tape Vol 1: VivaLaPassion.
