Talking about 2018 releases, we are obliged and proud to mention one of the best releases which came from the country where you believe it’s been snowing all time and bears walking the streets. That is not true! Summertime here as hot as anywhere else and g-funk is dope as anywhere. “From Russia With West” is the project that filled with the talented people like Popovski, WazAp, UGN, Ipo Crita, L-Tune, our homie Loco, etc… G Wylx (of Big Black Boots) executively-produced the whole thing as the movement’s veteran with more than 20 years of experience behind his back. Aleks Fima made all beats and they are bumping! It is very solid project from start to finish. Y’all heard projects from Japan, Poland, Italy, France and even more exotic places, now it is time to give this one a try, you can decide for yourself by listening to the whole release by the video in the frame below. Also need to mention special guest appearances by MC Eiht and Mellow Man Ace. So if you down for smth really smooth, fresh and new, support the project HERE and HERE.

Damn, we’ve been waiting for this one to drop from the beginning of the year. Actually, some of us were expecting solo from Rich Garcia since the early-mid 90’s when we first heard him on classic tracks on iconic albums such as Smile Now, Die Later, Stone Cold World, Eastside Drama, etc… The late Toker of Brownside said “he’s my Mexican Nate Dogg” to describe his sound.
The digital release was already out, however the CD release was about to follow, and finally it got dropped on BROWNSIDE13.COM, the official online store of Toker’s Brownside label. We have already got our CD’s in hand and listened to this album banging it to the fullest: it’s the great soul album (flavored by some live guitar and saxophone parts) with some tracks featured by Toker, Wicked, Lil Danger, Lady Jade, Lil Tokes (son of Toker), Chris Gunn & Howard E. Scott.
You can pick up an option if you want a signed CD from a legend himself or just regular CD, it’s up to you. Physical release contains bonus tracks that you won’t find on digital release. All we want is just to let y’all know so you won’t miss this banger, check the videos below:
All right, y’all! Ready for another hot summer full of intereating g-funk releases? We’re gonna give it to ya! Today we’re introducing you the Russian rapper/beatmaker Loco with his Locolization album. Loco ain’t new to the game, he’s been releasing stuff since 2009. And now he’s coming back with new album that can fill needs for old heads and fresh ones. So if you opened for smth new – we highly rerommend to order this album at his OFFICIAL BANDCAMP, CD’s will be real pressed ones issued in 4-panel digipaks; no bullshit CD-R’s as it’s been confirmed by the artist himself. All we want to say that it’s a really good album filled with summer vibes, talkbox tunes and dope production by the man himself. Also available on all digital platforms!
Check the album sampler below:
It’s really a pleasure to hear new releases from west-coast veterano Kokane, the current king of g-funk (he got all rights to claim that). Though it’s really hard to do smth new, Koka doing it again! Not looking at the extraordinary title, the most featured artist in the world drops album with absolutely no features. Except the dope producers list (Cold 187um, Battlecat, Tha Chill, West Coast Stone, Caviar to name a few…), of course. Pure 100% Kokane! Warning! Listening may become addictive! We do recommend to check the Discogs Page for a full tracklist.
7th of July is the release date, the CD is available for preorder at Bud E. Boy Entertainment Official Website , you can save up 3$ on that, later it will be a regular price. Here are the snippets below:
And that’s not all Kokane prepared for the fans!!! Along with BassBuds company he made a stylized bluetooth speakers and earphones merch! Buying a signed copy or regular one, you will get a digital version of the album + exclusive bonus track. Or just buy a t-shirt… It’s up to you! Go check those out on Kokane BassBoomz Website!
The last, but not least, the first video from the album:
Here’s smth new for digital lovers if you don’t have a vinyl player (searching in our late posts on what to listen). You know we’ve been supporting our italian homies for a while and already seen different groups and formations such as DPZ Crew, Docc N Locc, Blue Era Fam… Plus working closely with El Don on “Visions From The G-Funk Book” album so we couldn’t left this project behind.
Syndicate is a formation in formation, the first project from Be-Side studio, probably one of the last italian g-funk standing projects. Syndicate perfomed by El Don, Chevy, Fred Funk, Sisma X, Vinnie G, Chili Cee, Ryma, Clone One, Cairo. El Don took the most productions on this release with support of Fred Funk and Chevy. Syndicate is about to show you that italian g-funk is still strong, we gotta admit that it got the most italian native sound than any others we heard before.
Check it out on OFFICIAL BANDCAMP page, support the project if you like it.
Brownside, we knew it was coming! Toker been very active lately to bring the heat you wanted from one of the pioneers of chicano gangsta shit. To cut it short, we got 26 songs on DOUBLE CD (!!!), with intro and outro (simbolic 13 and 13). No bullshit, in OFFICIAL STORE there are offers on special fan packs with minimum double album (22 page booklet!) and postcard signed by Toker himself, so grab it while you can!
