*New Music* Mr. Hawkins releases “The Goodfight”

This is just a music-filled week.

The big homie and my partner in our new “Plates & Crates” event endeavor, Mr. Hawkins just released his latest and dare I say greatest project to date! The GoodfightTHE GOODFIGHT BY MR HAWKINS MIXTAPE COVER

The title should let you know the level you’re about to get on when you turn to the first track “SuperBlack BarBeQue” and get taken in with a brilliant sample of one of my favorite songs of all time, “Summer Madness”.

Fred does this all through the project, catering to his mature listeners by blending soul with hard drums and speaking in language that pushes the less mature to  nod their heads and catch the most profound bars. It’s a great marriage of street smart and conscious. The best example here being when he flips Kanye’s banger from last year “Thera-Flu” into what has become his show staple “Righteous Anymore”. Here he poses the ultimate question with the delivery you hear from trap rappers.

My favorite track this week is “Pushaman Pushaman”, where he flips the classic Curtis Mayfield sample the best I’ve heard making clever analogies and metaphors. This is Hip-Hop! Support The Goodfight!
