JUDAH & Dub MD – The Lupita Nyong’o Instrumentals (Album)

A muse was needed by JUDAH to create the sequel to his globally acclaimed “Amber Rose Instrumentals,” and who better than the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o. The visionary producer links up with UK’s Dub MD for a second time to deliver this sonic art exhibition. “The Lupita Instrumentals” was inspired by the transcendent beauty and class of Lupita Nyong’o, who is known for her Academy Award® winning performance in “12 Years a Slave.”

JUDAH, whose highly-demanded presence has painted sonic sound-scapes for noted names like Wale, Clipse, Ras Kass, Stat Quo, GLC and others. JUDAH took a similar approach with the sonics and samples for the ‘Lupita Instrumentals’ that he did with the ‘Amber Rose Instrumentals’ but added touches of additional elements to represent the uniqueness of Lupita. Really, who would pass on the chance of making a great body of work with Lupita Nyong’o?

01.) Amber Rose Will Be A Hard Act To Follow [Intro]
02.) Approaching Lupita
03.) This Is All For You
04.) Unformat The Format
05.) The SUN
06.) If You Believe
07.) She First Class Now

14.) Her Touch After The Show
15.) That Heart Breaking Kinda Love
16.) Patience Is A Virtue, Lupita

Mic Lungz x JUDAH – Bully Beatdown (Album)

Born in Washington D.C., Mic Lungz is a Hip-Hop artist who learned early about pain, struggle and sacrifice. Growing up during the Golden Age of Hip-Hop, music had a big influence on his life. During his late teens he along with 4 of his childhood friends formed a rap group called Rugged Soulz. Performing at neighborhood parties/open mics, was where he realized there was nothing else he wanted to do with his life but be an MC. The group eventually diminished to only two members, and he learned/mastered the art of song structure and recording. Always staying on his grind, Mic Lungz returns with his latest offering, ‘Bully Beatdown.’

‘Bully Beatdown’ plays host to hard hitting aggressive drum kicks and heavy MMA references sets the tone for this UFC themed album. Produced entirely by D.C. mainstay JUDAH, the duo are reviving that one MC, one producer combination. The album also supports features from Tone Trump, Tabi Bonney, K-Beta and Visto to round out the diversity from track to track.

01.) 2nd 2 None
02.) Bar 4 Bar
03.) Real Hip Hop (feat. Tone Trump)
04.) Beat Up The Beat
05.) Passion Fruit
06.) Take It Back (feat. K-Beta & RA)
07.) Years In The Making (feat. Tabi Bonney & Visto)
08.) Adrenaline Rush
09.) What Would You Do (feat. Shydi)
10.) Dedication
