The homie medafORACLE pulled an April Fools joke on everyone (me included) by hinting at The Soulowest dropping on Monday night. Turns out. It didn't. However. He gave us an unreleased track featuring blog regular, Dewey Binns and C-West. And an extended snippet of the upcoming album. Stay tuned for the REAL drop, right here on Loud.

The homie Jon Tefic (formerly known as Methotrexate) dropped "Coolin" yesterday. When I spoke with Jon, he mentioned aiming for a new sound. I embrace change. It's growing. And "Coolin" is no exception to that. I feel like it has a Cudi vibe with more rhymes. More substance. And he is just getting started. We are lucky to be working with Jon Tefic on upcoming projects. He is a serious emcee! Stay tuned!

I am way late on this. So. Apologies! However, better late than never. Enjoy!
In typical Puzzle People fashion, Chris McCain brings us a heater representing Oklahoma City! I have mentioned how much respect I have for the hip-hop game in Oklahoma on various occasions. It's our state's untapped treasure! Keep your eyes open for more of McCain at LoudCousins in the near future!

Odd Thomas dropped this piece on the incarnation of Jesus last Christmas. It impacted me heavily. It will forever be a Christmas tradition for me and my soon to be family. If you never checked it out, make sure you give it a listen. It's encouraging. Merry Christmas!
This is better than anything on TV today. Unless you catch the last 15 minutes of Home Alone. That is epic.

Allonzo Trier is a 6-0 SG that plays for NOAH (Northeast Oklahoma Association of Homeschools) and should be starting to get a lot of looks. This is a video of him cooking Bartlesville for 64 points Saturday night. As an OU fan, I already have my fingers crossed that Coach Kruger can pull him in when he graduates in 2015. Enjoy!

We obviously go heavy on Jabee. And why wouldn't we? We are an Oklahoma based Hip-Hop blog and Jabee is the heart of Oklahoma Hip-Hop. Stephanie is a walk down memory lane for Jabee. Getting picked on by a girl and how she made him feel unaccepted. Welp. If "ugly" gives you the talent and grind that Jabee has then I will trade in my chisled frame for a dinosaur suit. Word to EL-P on the production and to the talented Carlitta Durand on the vocals. Good stuff all around. - Ziggy
The latest single "Cloud" produced by North Carolina up and comer J Rodgers off of Japhia Life's critically acclaimed new LP "Westside Pharmacy", with it's minimalistic and menacing 808 littered instrumental sounds like a blast from past 80's era hardcore hip-hop, while still showcasing a progressive sonic soundscape. The reality of Japhia's artistic self conscious shows up in lines like "See I started rapping in 94, Why you think I sound like I'm from the 90's for". Artistically, a "Cloud" is meant to be slang for a thought or a message in terms of it's meaning. With that said... "Just make sure it's loud, now that's a Cloud. That's real though". - @illect
