Willie Green releases LP 'Doc Savage' - a Hip Hop epic

From its opening chords, Willie Green's Doc Savage crafts a cinematic journey into a magical land of beasts and heroes. Green’s discography is extensive, his connections run deep into the molten core of this tumbling space rock. For this record he enlists a staggering 30 compatriots to enrich his bombastic beats including Open Mic Eagle, Billy Woods, Premrock, and Googie. If you’re unacquainted with the best of what Independent Hip Hop has today, this album is a great place to start. - BrokeMc


Willie Green drops new album and feathered octopus.

Not since Dabrye’s two/three has a producer collected such a monstrous and diverse group of rappers and pushed them out of their comfort zones and into the further realms of phantasmagoria. In the video for “The Feathered Octopus,” the first of hopefully a whole series from his new Doc Savage EP, Brooklyn producer wunderkind Willie Green provides a polyrhythmic backdrop for two of indie hip hop’s preeminent lyricists to wax intangibles. Like the album, the vid is rife with hip hop cameos. Watch repeatedly, you will be wrestling with more than the language. - BrokeMc

Deli sponsored Hip Hop show at Paper Box on 09.07 with Metermaids, Deathrow Tull, PremRock and Willie Green

The independent Hip Hop scene in New York City is a dynamic and competitive array of artists striving to establish themselves as your new favorite headphone haven. The best way to experience these acts, however, is of course to see them on stage in full swagger and bravado. On Friday September 7th, the Tiger Stylez Party at Paper Box in Bushwick will deliver some of the best and the brightest emerging local hip hoppers The Deli has encountered in the past few years. As if the aural excitement weren’t enough, there will be a smattering of world-class street artists adding color to canvas while the rap groups bring the house down. From Strange Famous Records’ Metermaids (pictured + streaming) to Brooklyn Sweat-fest Deathrow Tull to the Lyrical Boom-baptivism of PremRock and Willie Green, this show is perfect for seasoned indie rap aficionados as well as the curious and uninitiated.
