Happy Memorial Day weekend! Salute to those who have served our country. If you cookin’ tomorrow or just need a soundtrack to chill, this week’s Dime Bag is the perfect mix. We’ve got new music and verses from CZARFACE & Method Man, Jadakiss & Rick Ross, Prodigy, Edo G & Reks, Camp Lo, Ghostface Killah Ft. Raekwon & Rza, Ras Kass, Skyzoo and more. See you in seven.
Fresh off of her highlight reel performance versus Jaz the Rapper,New Orleans battle emcee ultra,O’fficial,recruits fellow spitter Murf to deliver a gritty testimony about the city they’re from….The Big Easy b/k/a New Orleans. This some Nola Shit. Flatline.
Due to the high volume of submissions and the continuous flow of dope fresh produce, we just can’t post ALL of said materials that come our way. This here is an aggregation of some dope cuts that hit us while we were getting things back together. I know you all are going to love it…well because I did!!
Tune in and get with the program.
Marvelous Mag Music – I’m From Brooklyn feat Skyzoo & Brenton (Prod. By J57)
Kontraban – Bucka Bucka Ft.. Aaaron Cohen
The NYC-based producer/emcee duo, consisting of Kemal and Haze link up with ICK’s Aaron Cohen on this hazy thumping cut titled Bucka Bucka.
Rome Cee – The Kraken (prod by saptune)
B-more representative brings us closer to his hometown on this heartfelt tune laced by Saptune. Rome Cee has been carefully crafting his latest project #SevenCees which drops later this month.
Daytona 500 (Zilla Rocca Remix)
This remix slipped under my radar and I kinda found it by luck or should I say serendipity. Zilla Rocca breathes new life into this classic joint. The hook is gone but the 70s cinematic backdrop makes you forget about that(I did try singing along at the end and it kinda worked).
Jenna Marie – Hold Your Hand (prod. TV$H)
Sensual, ethereal and nothing less than DOPE. Jenna Marie showcases her vocal dexterity on this laid back TV$H crafted cut. The lady can kick barrrrs as well.
Marvelous Mag Music – “She’s Been hurt Before” prod by El A
Khalil – Tonight Featuring. Proda ( Co-Produced by B▲S▲ MusiK)
Soul singer Khalil delivers some retro influenced head nodder in the form of this synth based cut titled Tonight. A blend of neo soul/80s vibe and some good ol’ hip-hop to match.
Rome Cee – Gold
Rome Cee is that emcee who never shies from speaking the truth on real time issues and this time its no different as he offers his thoughts on American migrants. A well thought out song if you asked me.
This track examines the migrants of America, who we are versus what we once were. How to find long lost Gold in one’s self. Produced by Ancient Soundz. SevenCees tape coming 5.28.15
and that’s all for now folks. Just know we are back in full force so keep it locked right here!!!!

ASICS rounds up two fan-favorite silhouettes for its new “Alpine” pack, comprising the Gel-Lyte III and Gel-Lyte V in premium nubuck builds. Both carry two-tone color palettes, with the Gel-Lyte V featuring a dark tan upper with contrasting hits of red, and the Gel-Lyte III in a perforated nubuck base dressed in varying shades of grey and bright teal pops. A speckled midsole further differentiates the Gel-Lyte III. Having already launched in Europe, the ASICS “Alpine” pack is set to release tomorrow through select retailers, including Jersey’s Packer Shoes.
In introducing its new diver’s watch, Breitling refers to the Superocean Chronograph M2000 Blacksteel as the Dark Knight of the oceans. That’s because the piece represents the world’s only chronograph to be water-resistant and fully functional at a depth of 2,000 meters (6,600 ft). It features a patented magnetic pushpiece system that enables the chronograph controls to be handled via the metal of the case, preventing any risk of water seeping in. Already available in a polished steel version, the Superocean Chronograph M2000 Blacksteel is limited to just 250 units.
