Adam Baptiste, also know as ADL, pioneered Swedish rap in the early '90s, reaching legendary status. Touring with artists like Fugees, A Tribe Called Quest and many others. His flawless delivery, seamless flows, timeless topics and undeniable soul has inspired countless artists to date. Nowadays Adam works as a songwriter worldwide and seldom raps, unless it’s for a good reason. "Medicine" is that good reason. The track is an honest expression, a soul homage in the form of a open hearted love letter. Adam explains “Everything I said in this song is a reflection of the true me.”
"Medicine" is produced by DJ Devastate and features instrumentation by keyboardistSegerfalk. The remix is laced by producer Max i Million. This is the first release from newly formed Swedish label Counterweight Records, a small independent label with ambitions to to defy hype in effort to create a musical balance. Counterweight starts from scratch with the simple goal of showcasing creative and soulful music. "Medicine" is now available on 7-inch vinyl and for download, through all major digital retailers.

Hip-Hop has always been synonymous with getting money. From the early days of Eric B & Rakim, to the likes of ScHoolboy Q, most artists have treated their music like a business by making meaningful tracks that they're proud of, and getting compensated in the process. But while there's nothing wrong with making bank, you shouldn't have to compromise your sound to please others. For the rappers who are aiming for that low hanging fruit, "Truth Hurts" is the joint that will give their heads a shake, calling out those clones who are only in it for the glory. With El Gant's keenly focused delivery that could melt mics and Torae's equally impressive verse over JOAT's (Jack of all Trades) rugged production, coupled with DJ Devastate's sinister cuts, this is one tune that'll be bumped on the regular this summer. "Truth Hurts" is the latest leak taken from El Gant's forthcoming LP, Beast Academy, which is produced entirely by JOAT, and set to drop on June 10th.Beast Academy is now available for pre-order via iTunes.. wack rappers watch out.
Beast Academy is produced entirely by JOAT (Jack Of All Trades) and includes guest appearances from Chris Webby, Ill Bill, Torae, El Da Sensei, Infinity Gauntlet, and more, stay tuned!
Whether you were a tagger, a b-boy/girl or a Hip-Hop head, The Artifacts were one of the best to do it on the underground scene back in the day. Its been nearly 20 years since the release of their debut album Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and if you're curious to know how the former Boom Skwad representative El Da Sensei holds up on the mic in 2014, you'll see that he hasn't lost a step with his latest effort, "Show Stoppa." Featuring a sparse and bouncy beat with sharp cuts supplied by DJ Devastate, the jam has the New Jeruz native dropping bombs like it was 94' all over again. "Show Stoppa" is taken from Coalmine Records' forthcoming compilation album Unearthed (Mixed by DJ Revolution) which is scheduled to drop on May 13th via CD and digital download.. stay tuned!
"We never went gold or platinum, but we stood for a lot," says El Da Sensei of his original group, The Artifacts. This October will mark 20 years since the Newark, New Jersey duo released their Atlantic Records-backed Between A Rock And A Hard Place, spawning hits like "C'Mon With The Get Down" and "Da Wrong Side Of The Tracks."
Within, El and partner Tame One helped pioneer intricate wordplay and complex rhyme patterns, transmitting messages of smoking an abundance of herb, vandalizing trains with graffiti, and enjoying a Tri-State lifestyle that seems list in today's high-rise luxury apartments, hiked fares, and designer drugs (click here to continue reading).
