Benny ELs Drops First Installment to Industry Meltdown

TruStatement is releasing Benny EL’s most recent mixtape, The Industry Meltdown, set to drop October 5th. The project features some of the hottest new & old school instrumentals from artists such as The Beastie Boys, Biggy, Wale, and Timbaland. The most refreshing angle of this mixtape is the wide variety in musical genres, as well as Benny ELs ability to showcase a natural and consistent flow over any beat that comes his way. ELs has been on a tear, tracking with TruStatement collaborators Micah, M.A.E., Baldi, Never Yet Contested, and Free Trade for months, preparing for his official album release entitled B.E.T.A., set to drop Fall of 2010. B.E.T.A. is the deadly combination of producer t. agency and emcee, Benny ELs.

Below is the first YouTube installment to Benny ELs mixtape release with the song “Unbelievable”

Configa Presents​.​.​.​Pac To The Essence Vol. 1

ORDER NOW FROM WWW.CONFIGA.COM (in either CD or digital format)

Producers Note:

“This album came about partly as a retaliation against so called “official” remixes that use “contemporary” beats that are the latest fad, with guests that Pac never worked with, and probably never would have, had he still been alive today. Also, it is a retaliation against badly thought out, wack, off-beat YouTube mash-ups that generally use the vocals of Pac, Biggie, 50 Cent or Lil’ Wayne.

This album is made BY a long-time 2Pac fan FOR 2Pac fans, so if you ARE one, then go and order a copy WWW.CONFIGA.COM. In fact, if you are just a fan of boom bap sounding hip hop in general then you’ll love this album too, so again, go and get your order in WWW.CONFIGA.COM

I wanted this album to actually sound like a Pre-Death Row Era Pac, stripped down and RAW sounding…Like his vibe from 92/93/94 and I think I’ve achieved my aim. If you didn’t know better, I believe you would think this was an unearthed 2Pac gem. Anyway, please support this release if you love REAL hip hop.”

Lupe Fiasco – “Sunshine”

Fresh to def she is
From her steps to the set she is
So “death” might not let me live
Ya dig
Fresh uh huh, yes she is
Had a feeling that it would be a day like this
The orchestra in my mind don’t play like this (naw),
But I’m prepared for it
Got a lil rare for it
Brushed off my airs
Even cut my hair for it
‘Cause normally I don’t care for it
Don’t even be looking for like, like that
Then there go it
Yea right over there so I prepare the poet
Lil scared my stair lowered
Momma said have no fear
Plus I’m already outta my chair
God love my airs on my square from here forward
It’s nothing right so here go it
Whisper in her ear “it’s kinda crowded in here”
Would she care to blow it she said “yea”
