DillanPonders – Threatz (Remix) [Audio]

Toronto, ON – SmashMouth Entertainment’s own DillanPonders has just dropped a remix over Denzel Curry’s “Threatz” as an appreciation track dedicated to his DP fans. And it’s exactly what you would expect. Because Dillan is the type of dude to make an appreciation joint with lines like “I could have you dead by the sun-up,” or the overtly phallic “Swallow the icing/ You’re welcome.”

But that’s just how DillanPonders shows his love. He’s not going to be like, “Yo guys. I love you. I love you. Yeah, I love you.” No. He’s dropping lines like, “N*ggas don’t like me/ It might be because I f**ked all of their wifeys.” Kind of makes you appreciate the dude even more, no? He keeps it 100 because he keeps it DillanPonders. Drugs and dongs, and all that other ish. Check it out.

Mobolaji – Broke [Audio]

Toronto, ON – Toronto’s own Mobolaji just dropped his latest single entitled “Broke.” The track was produced by Afolabi “Bamzy” Akinbami. And – as per usual – Mobolaji gets deep on us. We’re all used to rap cats fronting about their fast dough-stacked lives. But Mobolaji doesn’t front – he’s broke. We’re talking cruising-on-the-train-because-he-doesn’t-have-a-car broke.

And somebody’s got to “pay.” Because Mobolaji is “losing his brain” (according to the track’s hook). So with that all said-and-done, this is a great time for a PSA: support your artists. Seriously. Because they’re usually not getting due compensation for their craft. Check it below.

New York, NYDJ Premier’s “Bars in the Booth” is for SERIOUS SPITTERS ONLY! Session 1 featuring Papoose verified as much!

Simply, “Bars in the Booth” isn’t about age, popularity, or how many Twitter followers you have; its about an emcee and a DJ moving the crowd—and that is the definition of hip-hop.

For Session 2, Premier linked up with up with Dres (of Black Sheep & Native Tongues fame):

Thanks to Dres from Black Sheep for being the next up on ‘Bars in the Booth.’ He killed it. We got more ‘Bars in the Booth’ coming soon, so subscribe to the channel so you do not miss a thing. Press Play!!” – DJ Premier
