Here’s the latest video from DJ Tony Touch’s Toca Tuesday Freestyle session!
This week Mac Miller, Alchemist & Prodigy came by!
Last week, Prodigy and Alchemist were up on Toca Tuesdays with DJ Tony Touch. Right before the cypher started, Mac Miller bum rushed the studio and joined in. We even got a rare verse from Alchemist. This is definitely a classic Toca Tuesdays moment.

East coast veteran duo MI and producer DJ Cutt, aka Constant Deviants, have been turning out hip hop bangers since the mid 90′s.
While MI signed with Arista in 2000, Cutt worked with N.O.R.E. and Roc-A-Fella Records, and the worlds collided again when MI featured with Rick Ross on N.O.R.E.’s “Yup” in 2006.
The duo set up a new label, Six 2 Six Records, and the imprint grew a global reputation for releases with the classic hip hop sound on the classic vinyl format. Fast forward to today, and they have just released their new album “Diamonds” from which this new video “Its OK” is taken.
Jamie Broad (@jamiebroadmusic), a rapper straight from Liverpool, at the forefront of a new wave of what’s known as ‘Scouse Rap’. With a reputation for lyrics, clever concepts and a style that pushes the boundaries.

I know that it is too early to determine the content quality of Jay-Z’s upcoming album, but what do you expect?
Will this album change the game or will it only appeal the mainstream? I am an optimist, so I expect this album to be a hip hop classic. I expect Jay-Z to change the game and bring a certain level of dignity back to Hip Hop. The reason why I expect this is because Jay-Z is a very influential artist who is in position to make those kind of changes. Kanye is another influential artist who is in that position but he went another route with the Yeezus album. I am all for evolving because shows progress, why is it that in Hip Hop, evolving as an artist includes ditching the dope beats and lyricism?
I don’t expect an artist to spit bars over an old school beat and call it a day. The times have changed but when listening to albums like Born Sinner and Good Kid m.A.A.d. City (just to name a few), I realize that evolving doesn’t mean you have to lose two of the most important elements of Hip Hop regarding the music. Both of these albums had dope beats and lyricism with a modern sound. J. Cole did a good deed concerning Hip Hop but he isn’t in the same position as Jay-Z and Kanye, YET…..
Sorry for the rant, but I say all of that to say, when it comes to hip hop album releases these days, we are left on edge not knowing what to expect. What do you think Jay will drop on us?
