Out of the list of A-grade project that are scheduled to be released this month, there’s no doubt that Prodigy and Alchemist’s full-length collaboration is up there in terms of importance. The pair return today with their latest single titled “R.I.P.,” along with guest features from two other heavyweights in the game, Havoc and Raekwon. The track is everything we’d like to expect as an overall outcome, with their Albert Einstein album available to pre-order on iTunes ahead of its release on June 11th.
Listen to the track after the jump.
Earlier this week a radio rip of Raekwon’s new single “Sound Boy Kill It” featuring Melanie Fiona hit the net. The high quality version is now available for stream and much like you might expect, The Chef blesses us with some fire over a vintage sounding break-beat. With Melanie Fiona holding down the smooth vocals on the hook, we can see this record picking up in the tri-state area this Summer.
Stay tuned for his F.I.L.A. project to drop later this year!
Tony Touch has been on a heavy campaign for his upcoming album “Piecemaker 3: Return Of The 50 MC’s,” which we get the projects first official single. He picked some of the greatest emcees of all time without a question from the Shaolin side of things with Ghostface Killah,, The RZA, Raekwon and his new artist JD Era for “Unorthodox.” After you stream the track above, you can look out for the new album “Tony Touch presents The Piecemaker 3… Return of the 50 MCs” in stores everywhere and iTunes on July 9th.

We’ve been really enjoying the music release the last few months with RZA’s “The Man with the Iron Fists” OST, and most recently the highly-praised Ghostface concept album, “Twelve Reasons to Die.” It’s crazy to think they’ve already been in the game for over two decades with the 20th anniversary of their debut album “Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers” set for this November, but the 8-man crew from Shaolin have had longevity in the game and show why they continue as legends.
Tonight, Soul Temple Music releases some unreleased Wu-Tang material out of the vault titled “Execution In Autumn.” Listen to the track above for some real hip-hop, then head over to bandcamp and purchase the single.
Produced by Frank Dukes.

Most Hip-Hop heads should be aware that Raekwon will be dropping his F.I.L.A. album by the end of the year, but for those feening some new music from The Chef, he just blessed the Internet with “Son Of Sam.” The track is meant to hold you over until Rae puts the finishing touches on the upcoming project. So soulful, don’t you agree?

Rapper-songwriter, Kent M$NEY is giving listeners more HS87 audio we can add to playlist fresh from the release of the crews debut album “All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of.” It’s been a long journey since his “Becoming EP” from 2010, but he returns with his sophomore project “Eyes Wide Shut.” We’ve seen a few samples from the project over the past few months to prepare you for the main entrée we have today.

Scram Jones is a busy dude this month. After dishing out an assist to Styles P for his mixtape Float dropping next Tuesday, he’s also dropping a mixtape tomorrow with The Chef himself, Raekwon. The Chef Vs. The Beast will serve as a “best of” tape from Scram Jones and Raekwon over the years, and to hold us over the next 24 hours he drops off an unreleased cut that will make the tape’s final tracklist tomorrow.
Produced by Scram Jones
YelaWolf sticks to his word tonight and drops his latest mixtape, Trunk Muzik Returns, for the people. Fitted with 10-tracks that showcase Yela’s prime ability to spit with the best of em, this project is absolutely not to be slept on. The production is spot on with Yela’s fast flow and witty wordplay. Pretty dope of Catfish Billy to keep the features pretty minimal on this as well. Features artists on this include Killer Mike, A$AP Rocky, Paul Wall and Raekwon.
Peep the official tracklist and download link after the jump.
We haven’t seen the back of Raekwon this year and his success only seems to continue from week to week. Raekwon feels the need to release a remix of the DJ Thoro-produced “86′” from his latest EP titled Lost Jewlry. This time the hip-hop veteran connects with another New York great by the name of AZ, along with additional vocals from Altrina Renee. Look out for The Chef’s Fly International Luxurious Art aka F.I.L.A. album, which is set to be released at a later date this year.
That Ice H20 crew hasn’t been quiet during 2013, but they’re continuing with the music and it can’t be any more apparent than their latest leak “Whatever Baby.” On the track, Raekwon and JD Era rock a soul sample and kick rhymes about shortys. No word on what project this will be found on, so keep it rotation for the vault.
