Album Review : Black Bethoven – ‘Heat’

Detroit, (MI) producer Black Bethoven unveils his debut album ‘Heat.’ The 313 native is from a strong musical lineage, being elder cousin to Black Milk and brother to Nametag, who have both successfully laid some solid ground work in the Detroit scene. This record was inspired by many of Detroit’s talent both past and present, stacked top to bottom with every element Black Bethoven has learned in his many years of producing music, culminating in providing the perfect platform to showcase his uniquely creative, unsullied sound, something we have all historically come to expect from Motown based producers.

‘Heat’ is textured with the unmistakable color of the 80’s synth sound, grounded with the strength of the classic Boom Bap to keep your head nodding, but also maintaining an untraceable experimental edge, unique to Black Bethoven. The emcees also provided that authentic Detroit sound which etched into the fibres of the entire album, collaborations include Nametag, 5ELA, Gratiot Jones, Laticia Moore, Mike Todd and more. The album will be available on iTunes, and other online retailers. For all beat inquires please contact: blackbethoven@gmail.com.

Video: ‘Epic Battle’ – Loaded Lux Vs Calicoe (Smack / URL) Full Version

You can say that in a sense, battle rap is almost like taking it back to the essence. The past few years has brought a lot of attention to battle rap and as much as it is entertaining, it’s also very dangerous to walk into a fellow opponent’s backyard and literally talk sh*t about them. Harlem’s own Loaded Lux and Calicoe of Detroit, have earned their spot in this area and both are true showmen when it comes to reciting their lyrics or rhymes (or whatever you may call it). As you would expect, HHABC embraces this part of the music genre and encourage the continual growth. We salute Smack/URL for helping to preserve a culture that is gaining popularity and still very much alive.

DETROIT — Authorities say a sport utility vehicle used by Detroit Mayor Dave Bing’s security detail had its wheels stolen.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Eren Stephens says the GMC Denali was assigned to a member of the executive protection unit. She says it was parked on the city’s east side when the tires and rims were taken late Tuesday or early Wednesday last week.

Mayoral spokesman Dan Lijana says the SUV is a secondary security vehicle that isn’t used to transport the mayor.

Photos posted on the website of WDIV-TV showed the black SUV up on blocks. WXYZ-TV reports the wheels were replaced before it was towed away.

Police said the theft was reported this morning and was under investigation.
