From Philly: Emynd + Reef the Lost Cauze

This picture is a beer advertisement Emynd has on the MySpace page for “White Tees and White Belts”, the Philly party he throws with Bo Bliz. It, (and the name of the party), sort of says it all. For some skanky club bangers sifted through a slew of regional fares (and a final remix of Fugazi), download or listen to his most recent mixtape:

Emynd, Crossfaded Bacon 2008 Mix

That’s two months old news by now though, so check out the most recent artist he’s touting (and producing):

Reef, “Looking at the Sun”

Emynd had this to say:

My man Reef The Lost Cauze is quite easily one of the best rappers in Philly. Dude is just a pro. His delivery is really flawless; technically and rhythmically, he often does some fairly interesting stuff; conceptually, he’s pretty forward thinking and isn’t afraid to take some chances; and even though dude can freestyle his ass off, he’s one of the few rappers I’ve ever known that can really translate that freestyle ability into solid written work as well. Dude also just knows how to make really good, cohesive songs: an art that is completely lost on the crops of young rappers in Philly that kill the DVD circuit but sound horrible on record.
