December BOOMBOX! New Music from Prie, Kwalified, Rukka, and Yung Matt!

Here’s another killer joint off of the young homie and FTB comrade, Prie, doing over Joey BadA$$’s track labeling it “The Life & A Day of a Mad Nigga”. This track will be included on his upccoming mixtape, The Life of The Good & Bad, set to release next year in April.

One of my favorite tracks out the HI right now, Kwalified (Workhouse, Ill Hill Society, Flip The Bird) and Rukka (Workhouse) just released this ill video, Jim Morrison. Production laced by Bad News.

Last but not least, check out the young homie, Yung Matt in his latest leak, Music Never Left. The Waipio native hits hard in every bar that he spits and progresses every time he laces a track. Can’t wait for his next project.

Super Proud of my hometown! H’s up!

NEW TRACK! “The Dilemma – Produced by Osna

Just for shits and giggles, I decided to drop this track as a freebie to all my fans who have supported me through the years. And in celebration on going on the road this weekend, I give to you “The Dilemma” featuring DJ Jaba on the cuts and production by Osna.

Track compiles a few frustrations of mine that have accumulated while being out here in Arizona. And for the record, I wanna send praises to my real “Trill” homies out in Hawaii (Jim Hurdle, Prie, Product, and Grip H). I also recorded and mixed this track at my new home studio, The Rap Cave.

Please spread the music to your friends and fam and leave a comment! More to come, familia!

VIDEO: Jcrooks & Osna “One Man”

So, I’ve worked with Osna since 2008 or so and I remember when dudes used to look down upon me for working with a producer/emcee that was way different than the normal hip hop artists you would hear in the underground bracket and indie hip hop scene. Knowing that dudes were condescending as shit with it, I would tell them that this dude Osna is the real deal and the only way to bring up the Hawaii Hip Hop scene is to work with one another no matter how different peoples styles are. That’s what makes Hawaii Hip Hop such a diverse culture and genre than any mainland or global artist out there. I got some production in the works real soon with the Aliamanu native but for now, enjoy his latest single and video with Jcrooks, “One Man”. You can go cop their latest project on their bandcamp site: CLICK HERE FOR JCROOKS & OSNA\'s PROJECT!
