Bekay - Hunger Pains (Coalmine Records)

Wassup everybody!! Like I did a several times, I want to help more friends with this blog (that has more visitors than expected / wanted). I promise you, I listen to a lot of hip-hop but this album got me into discussion with my friends and they all co-signed, one of the best this year. I said that a couple of times this year, actually, exact a couple of times, so in my opinion it's the 3rd best album of the year. You heard it right people!! I'll help you all to get into it, lets go!! Three tracks were produced by Shuko (from Germany, worked with OC, Big Noyd and more), and he is totally Preemish if you know what I mean. Bekay's latest video clip is produced by him named "Bloodsport", check this first one out:

I promise you, all his beats sounds like bangers!! The album is featured with respected artists like Masta Ace, DJ Revolution, R.A. The Rugged Man, Heltah Skeltah, Wordsworth, Saigon and even Inspectah Deck!! You can tell Bekay really worked hard to get the co sign of follow artists, but also respected producers gave him credit, beatmakers like Alchemist, DJ Babu, J.R. Rotem and Marco Polo!! The Masta Ace track was actually the first single of his album and was already in heavy rotation on real rough hip-hop channels (like Preems channel), go check it out:

Still not convinced? Now it's my time, I'm going to pick the realest track of the album, the dopest Marco Polo track of this year! Judge yourself, featuring R.A. The Rugged Man:

Bekay - Pipe Dreams (Feat. R.A. The Rugged Man) (Prod. by Marco Polo)

Bekay - Pipe Dreams (Feat. R.A. The Rugged Man) (Prod. by Marco Polo) (Instrumental)

And yes, I added co signing of DJ Premier himself to the track, the evidence is there. But don't worry, the track itself is CDQ.

Now I know a lot of my visitors that are reading this have this feeling, "I already know this artists, I already supported the guy" (like me). But when you know some history facts of him you will say "That's wassup". He doesn't fuck with the major, he doesn't fuck with the commercial shit, why? Born and raised in Brooklyn he started to rhyme very young. Follow friend Brooklyn star Ol' Dirty Bastard (R.I.P.) recorded one of his last rhymes on a single of Bekay named "Where Brooklyn At?", one week before they were going to shoot the clip he passed away. So the label T.S.O.B. Records forwarded they still wanted to do the clip because there eyes were turning green, you feel me? Why not profit from his death like they always do. Bekay didn't fucked with that and leaved the label. Now signed to indie label Coalmine Records they are starting to make something complete. With great visions and a lot of mutual respect to the hip-hop community. That's the main reason I'm writing this, respect needed to be deserved. Money is second, it's necessary to survive, but second. And like DJ Premier said, wack is wack and dope is dope, underground will live for ever baby!
