Scrooge – Ghetto Religion (2017)

Amos Moore IV, the g-funk genius, rap artist & producer from Tacoma, WA, known to many g-funk heads as Scrooge finally has recently come back with his long-awaited 3rd album “Ghetto Religion”. Though it’s been 10 years since he dropped his 2nd album called “Ride Wit Me”, it was well worth the wait because his new album ain’t nuthin’ but pure g-funk dope, which we all been waiting for so long!

He worked on this album about a year perfecting it in each and every way, with all the 9 tracks produced by Scrooge himself. On the album he got help of some nice vocal singers including his long-time companion LaKesha Edwards, and Robert Jordan on the guitars. What we try to say that this album was made with top quality: recording, mastering, pressing – we absolutely recommend this A+ release.

You can cop this album in CD format or digital @ store.cdbaby.com delivered worldwide.

NNP – Resurrection (2017)

NNP (New Nuclear Power) is the legendary Jazzy hip-hop / G-Funk group from Slovakia has been well known to some true hip-hop heads as they have been active since early 90’s and until their disbanding in 2000. During that period they dropped a number of CD / vinyl singles and the full-length album “Everydaylife$tyle” (CD’s & tapes) on BMG Ariola in 1997. Though, not many people know that they worked on and recorded their 2nd album in 1999-2000 but it was shelved due to the group break-up soon after they finished working on that album. So, today, right on the G-Funk.WS 7 Year Anniversary, we are pleased to announce the release of NNP’s 2nd album “Resurrection” in CD format, in connection with Invizzible Music (Slovakia). It includes all original studio recordings with no sound degradation for all y’all audiophiles down with us.

On this album you find 11 tracks predominantly produced by DJ K.I.P., a kind of Jazzy Hip-Hop & G-Funk fusion, so nicely blended for your listening pleasure that one might get left with a feeling that he wants to spin the CD one more time in a row. Another lost gem to your collection, plus, for the people who listen hip-hop only in English, it might be a surprise that mostly this album contains English language, NNP did the most records in it back in the days, so you will understand the most part of the lyrics.

You can order this album in CD and digital format @ G-Funk.WS Official Bandcamp but make sure not to take your time as the pressing is limited to 300 copies worldwide. Once again, no bullshit CD-R’s, nice design and artwork layout by Marina Sparrow. We do only quality stuff for y’all…7 years already!

Ridaz & Mister C ‎- Ça Tise Mais Ça Taff (2017)

Already somewhat known in the underground rap scene featuring on different projects, Mr. Ridaz & Mister C teemed up to work on the the collabo album Ça Tise Mais Ça Taff / We Drink But We Work, which they released independently, without a support of any label or distribution company.

As both of them rapping on the album, Mister C also handled all the production on it. This album literally “features no featurings” at all (they even produced this album by themselves) which is pretty rare in g-funk, especially, nowadays. This is type of g-funk music that you may feel like listening to any time of year and leave you in a careless uplift mood.

Mastered by Hic Box, the sound quality of the whole album is high enough to guarantee ya’ll remain satisfied, especially those who care about it (sound quality).

The album was released in CD format on July 14th, 2017. While the CD’s have been sold predominantly on the streets of France (like back in the days), the hardcopies are available @ Mr.Ridaz Official Site and shipping worldwide.

Sligh Talkbox ‎– Sligh Boulevard (2016)

Last year we missed one dope g-funk album Sligh Boulevardreleased by Sligh Talkbox, a versatile hip-hop musician from Grand Rapids (Michigan). He started out as a guitarist and fell in love with Hip Hop during the Golden Era in the 1990’s. Sligh began writing & producing Hip Hop in the mid 90’s with a funk infused sound with catchy hooks and feel good lyrics. He expanded his skills as a musician by adding bass guitar an keyboard to his repertoire.
In 1997 Sligh released his first Hip Hop album as part of a Hip Hop duo “Love West.” He followed this album up with a solo effort “Sligh’s Special Reserve” in 2000. Both albums had some underground buzz, but Sligh would have to go back to the lab. He released the Gospel rap album “Pure Gold” with the group “Brothers On The Hill” in 2009. But again something was missing for Sligh, so he went back to his funk roots as he was a long time fan of the group Zapp & Roger. The talkbox was an instrument that had always intrigued Sligh and the Sligh Talkbox Era began in 2010. Talkbox proved to be a pivotal piece of the puzzle for Sligh. He worked hard on his talkbox skills and has recorded talkbox features for artists all over the world and in 2016 he released his full-length solo album “Sligh Boulevard” both in digital and CD format.

On this album any g-funk fan find something for themselves: the album is full of smooth talkbox hooks by Sligh and has many dope features. It was produced by Sligh and Nixon, at the same time Sligh plays talkbox, keyboard, guitar and bass on the album. This is a kinda perfect album for summertime and is a tribute to the G Funk Era of Hip Hop, the era that made Sligh fall in love with Hip Hop.

You can cop a digital copy on Sligh Bandcamp Page but you need to get at him on his Facebook Page or email him @ funkymangr@gmail.com for a CD hardcopy (it was released in 6-panel digipak) which is limited to 200 copies.
