**PSA**: We’ve Moved! Tru Dat Blog Now Lives at JanaeTru.com (Photos)
We’re moving back to Wordpress! The goal is for this move to make my blogging more efficient so that I can serve my audience better. A lot of independent artists have been sending me their music and this site allows more exposure to their work.
You’ll also be able to keep up with my whereabouts on the Bmore scene outside of just music on the “On the Scene” page.
Check out these preview shots of the site and make sure you log on to keep up with Baltimore Hip Hop!

I read this essay this morning and felt it was important to post.
"Rappers need to tell listeners the truth, that most dealers are broke and can’t afford child support and barely have enough to pay their Spring bill after reing up. The truth is that crack is almost as obsolete as typewriters and that no one is making millions off of it except the artists who get checks from singing about it." - D. Watkins

This joint has been on rotation on my phone. I’ve been side eyeing the emo-alternative hip hop sound for a while now, but I can get down with this one.
Off the album “Lower Mercury”, coming soon.

Don Streat x Slum Pritt x Mitch L. Hennessy x Macabeats “Sand In The Streets” (prod. by @CoolFDBeats)
Peep this leak from Global Warning Inc., an international hip hop music label composed of five emcees: Don Streat (Baltimore), Macabeats, Mitch L. Hennessy, Slum Pritt and Taya Jae; and four producers: Cool FD, M.W.P., Dichter2Productions, and Macabeats. This beat on this joint has a jazzy feel to it with a tempo that keeps us engaged with the emcees as they spit. Let me know what you think!
NEW MUSIC: Charm Committee x Buddah Bass - “Nostalgic”
NEW VIDEO: Ill Concious (@Ill_Concious) x MWP - The Ruler (S.O.N Media)
Baltimore emcee ill Concious drops some dope visuals for his trackThe Ruler off of his forthcoming album The Essence. Produced by M.W.P. from Denmark with cuts by DJ Modesty from France, this track exudes a 90s era of hip hop with Ill’s boom bap flow and the mellow, soulful beat incorporating turntablism.
Check out the self proclaimed rap God coming for other hip hop heads lyrically and enjoy the sites of my hometown city Baltimore in the video. Kudos to Baltimore SON for the awesome videography work.
