BodyBagBen & M.O.P. – “Lord Body”

Oxnard, CA producer BodyBagBen delivers one of the hardest tracks of 2020 so far with “Lord Body,” his riot-causing new single co-piloted by the legendary M.O.P. This absolute haymaker of a track is brimming with everything you’d want from the legendary Brownsville rap duo, including their signature adlibs, trademark bully raps, and larger-than-life sh*t-talk. Lil Fame and Billy Danze have truly found a new partner in crime with Ben. “Lord Body” is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms. And for the heads in search of some dope summer apparel, Body is offering the single artwork as a dope, fashion forward merch pressed on high quality navy t-shirts, exclusively through his Bandcamp page.

Sean Price & Lil Fame Take “Center Stage” On A New Release From P (Audio)

It has been more than four years since the incomparable Sean Price, but thankfully, his name continues to ring bells through new music reaching the fans. Right in time for the holidays, Ruckdown/Duck Down Music will release Price Of Fame, a collaborative album from P and fellow Brownsville MC/producer Lil Fame of M.O.P. on December 20, and is available for pre-order. Comprised of all unreleased verses from P!, Price Of Fame is entirely produced and arranged by Lil Fame—who has also used his “Fizzy Womack” alias on credits behind the boards. Although known for menacing Mash Out Posse songs over the last quarter-century, Fame has amassed a respected discography making songs for Wu-Tang Clan, AZ, Cormega, and many others. Price Of Fame first single, “Center Stage,” is just one of 11 tracks that shows precisely why the icon will forever be known as “a bar-barian.” The LP was something Sean was talking about just before his 2015 passing. Tony Touch Power Cypher Featuring A.G., Black Thought, M1, Lil Fame, Sean Price & Illa Ghee (Video) “Me and Sean P always spoke about recording an album together,” Lil Fame shared with Complex. “We grew up in the same [Brownsville, Brooklyn] neighborhood and came up in the game about the same time. So when we finally got in the studio, the sh*t was epic. Y’all know P! is a beast with them bars.” The verse features Sean’s trademark style of clever compound rhyme schemes. Fame offers a second verse, illustrating how things have not changed. Price finishes the track out with some gritty, self-deprecating rhymes. In 2000, M.O.P. Went Hunting For CD Bootleggers To Mash Out (Video) The album features guest appearances from Boot Camp Clik brethren Smif-N-Wessun and Rockness Monsta as well as Conway The Machine, Illa Ghee, and Rim. Billy Danze joins Fame on one of two songs. Meanwhile, M.O.P.’s longtime right-hand-man also joins the fold. The Price Of Fame tracklist: 1. ‘A Few Words From Mrs. Price’ 2. ‘Big Gun Vs Lil Gun’ f/ M.O.P. 3. ‘Center Stage’ 4. ‘Boston George’ f/ Tek 5. ‘Sit Your Ass Down’ (Skit) 6. ‘Pigs’ f/ General Steele 7. ‘They Ain’t Fucking With Us’ f/ Rockness Monsta 8. ‘Remember The Time’ f/ Illa Ghee 9. ‘Wait For It’ f/ Lil Fame 10. ‘Peter Pop Off’ f/ Rim, Teflon & I-Fresh 11. ‘Enemy Of The State’ f/ Conway The Machine Smif-N-Wessun Discuss Giving 25 Years Of Their All To Hip-Hop (AFH TV Video) Sean Price press photo by Danielle Da Silva provided by Duck Down Music.

D.I.T.C. Show They Are Still Juggernauts On A New Compilation Album (Audio)

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let Ambrosia For Heads fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than its ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlist with recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so. We update it regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify. The Diggin’ In The Crates crew is one of the most trusted brands in Hip-Hop. This Bronx, New York-based outfit is responsible for introducing the world to Big L and Fat Joe, as well as assembling some of the most talented producers and MCs in the genre. This collective decorated the 1990s with acclaimed albums like Diamond D’s Stunts, Blunts And Hip Hop, Showbiz & A.G.’s Runaway Slave, O.C.’s Buckwild-produced Word…Life, Lord Finesse’s The Awakening, Joe Crack’s Represent, and Big L’s Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous. However, through shifting sounds and tragedies, D.I.T.C. has stayed consistent for the next 25 years too. Xzibit & Lord Finesse Go Hard In A Fat Beats Cypher (AFH TV Video) Recently, D.I.T.C. released another compilation with Show at the helm. D.I.T.C. Studios, Vol. 2 involves some core members of the collective, as well as affiliates such as Papoose, Milano Constantine, and David Bars. M.O.P.’s Lil Fame joins O.C. on “Juggaknots,” produced by Show. Over a sinister groove, O attacks the first verse while Fizzy Womack adds those menacing Mash Out ad-libs. “The flow’s serious / From years of experience,” spits the MC. Moments later, he salutes Big L. “This here’s a warning shot in the air, like when ya first heard ‘Da Enemy’ / See, I won’t stop / ‘Til I’m in the box / The flow’s by Lamont, call him the crown prince of The Immortals / Us.” He shouts out Wu-Tang Clan, D-Block, M.O.P., and his engineer, Parks (also of The Joe Budden Podcast). Fame takes on the bridge and the chorus. This Friday (December 6), Fat Joe is releasing Family Ties. The album features Eminem. In 2019, Diamond D dropped The Diam Piece 2 while O.C. dropped a compilation of rarities. Last week, Diamond told AFH that he is producing a full LP for Talib Kweli and dropped some footage.

Gang Starr’s Album Is Here & It’s One Of The Best Yet (Audio)

Less than six weeks ago, Hip-Hop Heads suddenly learned that a Gang Starr album was on its way. DJ Premier had spent more than a year producing songs around previously unreleased vocals from his longtime creative partner, Guru. The MC/producer had passed away in 2010, nearly seven years removed from the duo’s previous LP, The Ownerz. Now, approaching a decade since Guru departed, Gang Starr’s legacy lives on through One Of The Best Yet. The new collection of songs and interludes involves some of the group’s closest affiliates, along with some noteworthy Rap peers that stand for the duo’s everlasting message. Earlier this week, a New York Times report by Paul Cantor revealed that this TTT/Gang Starr Enterprises LP may be the first of two potential albums from the group. Regardless of when and where these verses were recorded, O.O.T.B.Y. has messages that feel destined for the Rap group that Guru (as “Keithy E”) had co-founded in 1980s. The J. Cole-assisted “Family And Loyalty” plays like a decree to the Gang Starr brotherhood, complete with Big Shug in the video (as well as Guru’s son). Shug was with Guru back in the first iteration of Gang Starr, in mid-1980s Boston. He remained a fixture in Gang Starr Foundation after Premier and Guru had carried on the group together, meeting in New York City later in the decade. A New Report Details How DJ Premier Rescued Guru’s Lost Recordings Like “Family And Loyalty,” album closer “Bless The Mic” is another prophetic reminder of the Gang Starr bond. “Whether wrong or right / A lot of people fight / But I’m here the mic,Guru raps in what has become the chorus. Those words carry perspective for a complicated period between 2003 and 2010 for the two men. Guru’s verses flaunt the kind of wisdom that Elam loved serving “dumb rappers” on songs like “Speak Ya Clout” and “Just To Get A Rep.” For this listener, it is hard to imagine the song recorded to any other beat. It has that tailor-made chemistry that outlasted trends in Hip-Hop, a changing business model, and so much more that the industry witnessed between 1989 and 2010. Through their respective mediums, these men are communicating with each other, getting the last word to their brilliant history. One Of The Best Yet also allows proper sendoffs from affiliates like Jeru The Damja and Group Home. These artists became Gang Starr’s proteges, eventually stepping away on later albums. “What’s Real” with Lil Dap and Melachi The Nutcracker has that trip down the New York back-streets. Royce 5’9 joins the moment, a disciple from the dark imagery of Group Home, and Preemo’s more recent beneficiary, thanks to PRhyme. As he did so well during the mid-1990s, Jeru hits the pocket of “From A Distance” with his nimble flow and distinct brand of lyrical substance. Billy Danze and Lil Fame give the M.O.P.-assisted “Lights Out” two shining verses. Freddie Foxxx (aka Bumpy Knuckles) and Shug honor “The Militia” series with a fourth installment, with some fresh raw denim bars, over-top some crisp scratches and pounding percussion. Gang Starr’s New Video With J. Cole Keeps Guru’s Legacy Alive (Video) Pre-album single “Bad Name” stands tall within this body of work. Guru’s love for Hip-Hop culture permeated everything he did. Repping for fallen comrades Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur, Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal’s call for better behavior in the community sounds brand new and relatable. Those sentiments echo on “So Many Rappers,” as well as the brief-but-potent “Bring It Back Here.” So many of these songs defy feeling 10-plus years old, a testament to Guru’s pen and plausibly, the behind-the-scenes surgery of Premier. This group had intricate ways of making its albums in Calliope and D&D Studios from the very beginning. Now, with Guru’s ashes at the control panel, that chemistry still bubbles at Queens’ HeadQCourterz, named after another fallen Gang Starr family member. Gang Starr’s impact on Hip-Hop cannot be understated; DJ Premier and Guru’s love and brotherhood can never be undone. Heads have known these facts for decades. One Of The Best Yet is a pleasant reminder for your speakers. DJ Premier Discusses The Making Of Gang Starr’s Hard To Earn 25 Years Later At AFH TV, DJ Premier provided a 20th-anniversary “Making The Music” in-depth interview regarding Gang Starr’s Moment Of Truth. There are other videos related to Preemo and Nas. We are currently offering free 7-day trials. “Bad Name” and “Family and Loyalty” are presently included on the official AFH Playlist.

Today in Hip Hop History: M.O.P. Drops Their Debut Album ‘To the Death’ 25 Years Ago

April 5 is an interesting day in Hip-Hop music. Rarely is a rap record released on this day — we did the research, but feel free to prove us wrong! — but there was one influential LP that jumpstarted the careers of two Brownsville natives and competely shook the game up in 1994. Yes, we’re talking about the Mash Out Posse, who you may know better as M.O.P., and today we show them love as their debut album To The Death turns 25.


Select Street Records


Released on April 5, 1994, To The Death was yet another milestone in the domination that New York had on the rap game, with Lil’ Fame and Billy Danze both representing Brooklyn with the ruggedness and street appeal that shaped the attitude, look and overall sound of Hip-Hop at this time. The album itself was a precursor for rappers like Nas (Illmatic), Outkast (Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik), Da Brat (Funkdafied) and The Notorious B.I.G. (Ready to Die) amongst others that also debuted in 1994, with M.O.P. coming out swinging with three singles and a modest peak at #68 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.



The album was produced entirely by legendary East Coast rap producer and fellow Brownsville native DR Period, aside from the closing track “Guns N Roses” which was handled by Silver D and executive producer creds going to silent M.O.P. member Laze E Laze. The musical themes highlight the climate of life in hoods throughout America in the ’90s — gang violence, “fake ass gangstas,” staying fresh and just surviving the “rugged neva smoove” streets of New York City.



Of all the singles released off this shining debut, the highlight would of course be the anthem cut “How About Some Hardcore.” It was the most successful performance on the charts and amongst the hardest of Hip-Hop fans, peaking in the Top 40 on the US Hot Rap Songs chart at #36. For those that liked it raw, M.O.P. provided that effortlessly on this record with impressive lyricism, dope production and a tenacity to make it big that we’d see the duo accomplish even greater on the DJ Premier-produced follow up album and the 2001 smash hit “Ante Up (Remix).” And to think: all of this originated from a chance standout appearance on the soundtrack to House Party 3!



Happy 25th anniversary to M.O.P.’s debut album To The Death! Tell us your favorite tracks over on Facebook and Twitter after reading the original album review featured in The Source Magazine Issue No. 56 (May 1994) below:

M.O.P.’s Ante Up Remix Was Supposed To Feature JAY-Z & Prodigy While They Were Beefing

Although “Ante Up,” may not M.O.P.’s highest-charting single, the street anthem is a cornerstone of Billy Danze and Lil Fame’s catalog. Released in late 2000, the Loud Records single produced by D/R Period was emblematic of the menacing music that the Brownsville, Brooklyn Rap duo had been making since 1994’s To The Death. At a time when so many artists were bragging about jewels, medallions, and flossing the “iced out” lifestyle, the Mash Out Posse reminded the high-posters that stick-up kids are forever out to tax. As the Warriorz single delivered M.O.P. to radio, music videos, and crossover markets, a remix enhanced the song. Busta Rhymes, Remy Ma, and longtime group affiliate Teflon appeared on the second offering, complete with a video (embedded below). However, in a new conversation with Doggie Diamonds’ The No Filter Podcast, Bill Danze reveals that another legendary lineup was originally intended. Billy Danze Takes A Classic Rick James Sample & Hammers It At 2:00, the show host asks Billy Danze how a young Remy Ma landed on the remix. “Remy forced her way on the record,” says the veteran who just released his solo project, 6 Pack. “What I mean by that is, she just did such a good verse. We didn’t have her in mind.” In the next few years after the breakthrough appearance, Remy Ma (who was still known as “Remy Martin”) would officially sign with SRC Records, Steve Rifkind’s imprint after Loud. Bill continues, “Really, [JAY-Z] was supposed to get on the song. Prodigy had did a [verse] for the song. I didn’t want to use Prodigy’s verse because he was actually talking about Jay. Remember, they had a lil’ beef then. So I hit Jay and was like, ‘Yo, nevermind. Don’t worry about the verse; we’re closing the song now.'” Bill continues that Jay likely knew that the Mobb Deep MC was going to be on the record. “He knew that was gonna happen. But I couldn’t allow that—even if it was the other way around. If Jay was on the record dissing Prodigy, I would’ve took Jay off the record. Nahmean? You don’t bring your beefs or lil’ war into my house; I don’t do that.” Just Blaze Says He’s Given M.O.P. All The Beats Intended For Their Roc-A-Fella Album At the time, Prodigy’s beef with Jay was just bubbling to the surface. According to a 2017 Complex feature, tensions started in 1998 when JAY-Z rapped, “It’s like New York’s been soft ever since Snoop came through and crushed the building,” on “Money, Cash, H*es.” In 1995, Capone-N-Noreaga, Tragedy Khadafi, and Mobb Deep has responded to Tha Dogg Pound and Snoop Dogg’s “New York, New York” with “L.A., L.A.” “Jay was nowhere to be found when that drama popped off between Mobb Deep, Dogg Pound, [Tupac], and Biggie,” Prodigy would later tell The Source, as quoted in his My Infamous Life memoir. “That was our little personal beef, not a coastal war… so JAY-Z is a b*tch-ass ni**a for making that quote in his lyrics.” Jay eventually landed in Tupac’s scope of enemies, although he has worked with Snoop and Tha Dogg Pound. Smif-N-Wessun Detail The Making Of The Album Where They Truly Gave Their All (Video) Less than a year after “Ante Up,” those tensions and alleged subliminal disses came to the surface on Jay’s “The Takeover” and Mobb’s “Crawlin’.” In a 2017 interview with Rap Radar Podcast, JAY-Z revealed that he and Prodigy made peace before his former counterpart’s passing. In 2000, Prodigy and M.O.P. were Loud label-mates. After Warriorz, Billy and Fame signed with JAY-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records. Although the pair appeared on Jay’s “U Don’t Know (Remix),” they did not complete an album. Just Blaze recently revealed that he gave Lil Fame a drive of the beats set aside for that early 2000s project. Just also revealed in 2017 that Prodigy was the first MC to rap on “U Don’t Know.” In 1998, M.O.P., Jay, and Teflon collaborated on First Family 4 Life video single, “4 Alarm Blaze.” In 2014, M.O.P. and Mobb Deep teamed for “Street Certified.” N.O.R.E. & Havoc Have An Intense Conversation About The C-N-N/Mobb Deep Beef (Video) New music from Billy Danze is currently on Ambrosia For Heads‘ official playlist. 6 Pack features Fame and Teflon. #BonusBeat: M.O.P.’s “Ante Up (Remix)” video, featuring Busta Rhymes, Remy Ma, and Teflon:

Do Remember When EPMD Teamed With Red & Meth For A Rap Symphony (Video)

Def Jam Records had made some of the most iconic Hip-Hop albums of all-time during the 1980s. After some sluggish years in the early 1990s, the label started by Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin rebounded in a major way in 1998. That was the same year that the imprint forecast its future with the Def Jam 2000 campaign. A string of albums included #1 releases. DMX’s It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot and same year follow-up, Flesh Of My Flesh Of Blood Of My Blood topped the charts. So did JAY-Z’s Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life, Foxy Brown’s Chyna Doll, and Method Man’s Tical 2000: Judgement Day. With the irons hot, Def Jam returned to focus on an act it had been working with for a decade: EPMD.

Released on July 20, 1999, Out Of Business was the sixth album for Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith. Standout single “Symphony 2000” gave the listeners a taste of raw lyrics and futuristic production featuring haunting strings from “Uccellacci Uccellini” by Italian composer Ennio Morricone. A previously recorded version of the song originally called “Symphony” featured M.O.P. and is also present on Out Of Business. Decisions were made at the label to push a version with more of an in-house, Def Jam feel. Erick Sermon protege (and Def Squad band-mate) Redman was recruited, along with Method Man, an artist who the Green-Eyed Bandit also worked closely with. Newer Def Jam act Lady Luck was chosen to spar in the Rap ring in which some would call the grand finale of what would be the last release of an EPMD’s historic Def Jam run.

EPMD Take Care Of Business At The Roots Picnic In New York (Video)

With direction from Steve Carr, the visual for “Symphony 2000” is based on the theme of Horror movies where all artists are present in a warehouse and also shown in scenes were they are dressed as his or her favorite scary movie character while releasing virulent lines to their victims.

PMD, as “Michael Myers,” starts the track off prepared for lyrical warfare as he spits, “I grab the mic and grip it hard like it’s my time to shine / I want the chrome and the cream so I can put it down for mine / Ill cat / Slick talk / Slang New York / To break it down to straight English / What the f*ck you want / Remember me / You punk fa**ot / Crab MC / Get your sh*t broke in half for f*cking with P / Hey yo’ strike two / My style Brooklyn like the zoo / Hey you / Look ni**a / One more strike you through.” Part of the delivery and style seems to salute Meth’s Wu-Tang Clan brother Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

Erick Sermon & Parrish Smith Are Still In Business. They Have An EPMD Sneaker (Video)

Next up to carry the devilish torch is Erick Sermon as “LeatherFace” from Texas Chainsaw Massacre. While having a woman tied to a chair screaming, he taunts her with his gruesome family members while rapping, “Time to rock / The sound I got / It reigns hot / Making necks snap back / Like a slingshot / E hustle / And muscle my way in / The tussle for days in / On my own with guns blazing / Not for the fun of it / Just for those who want me to run it / Then leave them like / Who done it / Sucka’ duck / I do what I feel right now / When I spit the illest sh*t / Cats be like wow!”

One of the most memorable parts of the music video is when Funk Doc channels his inner Jack Nicholson while showcasing his own version of The Shining’s famous scene when “Jack Torrance” has become possessed and begins to chase his wife while hacking through walls and doors with an axe. After Redman breaks through the bathroom window, he shouts “Here’s Reggie!” Red then proceeds by starting his verse with a melody familiar to R. Kelly’s “Did You Ever Think.” Did you ever think you would catch a cap? / Yo, did you ever think you would get a slap? / Yo, did you ever think you would get robbed? / At gunpoint, stripped and thrown out the car?/ It’s Funk Doc, you know my name, h*e / My style dirty underground, or Ukraine po’ / When it hit you, pain pumps Kool-aid, through the vein and sh*t / Snatch the trap / Then I dash, like Damon did.”

Method Man And Redman Are Still Kings Of The Rap Jungle (Audio)

Method Man dressed as “Dr. Giggles” takes a stab at the track and his patient as she lays on an examination chair in pain with agony written all over her face. While dancing around and playing with surgical tools, Iron Lung hits the listeners’ head with, “Youth on the move / Paying them dues / Nothing to lose / Street kids, broken and bruised / Eyeing your jewels / Bad News, baring they souls through rhyming blues / Hardcore, to make them brothers act a fool / Hands on the steel, flip your heads over heel / Smell the daffodils / From the lyric overkill.”

When it comes to “Symphony 2000,” it seems the team gave way to a hungry MC. Seventeen-year-old Lady Luck channels “Carries.” At one point of her verse the Englewood, New Jersey rapper spits, “It’s written / We in the game, but I ball different/ Point game like Jordan, y’all play the role of Pippen / Style switching / Like tight ass after sticking / Man, listen / Stop your crying and your b*tchin’ / Like E and P’s last CD, You’re out of business.” Even with another high-powered appearance on Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Says (Remix),” Lady Luck was never able to deliver a Def Jam release in the changing climate. These days she appears on Bravo’s First Family Of Hip-Hop reality series.

Other Ambrosia For Heads Do Remember Features

While Method Man is putting the finishing touches on The Meth Lab II, Redman is wrapping Muddy Waters Too. As for EPMD, Ewing Athletics recently paid tribute to Strictly Business with the release of a limited edition sneaker themed after the classic project. Additionally, the duo is said to be down with JAY-Z’s Roc Nation, working on a conceptual album of all two-artist crews, called Dynamic Duos: Big Business. Mobb Deep, M.O.P., Black Star, Salt-n-Pepa, and Capone-N-Noreaga are said to be some of the guests. “Symphony 2000” shows that Red’ and Meth’ should get that call too.
