DJ Soko "Land Mine" Feat. Rasheed Chappell (Prod. By Apollo Brown)

By Ralo

The urban lifestyle has always been a hive of activity in the world of hip-hop culture. First there is the visually arresting images of graffiti, then there is the hypnotic rotation of turntables. You can't forget the acrobatic display of b-boys or the oral expression of MCing.

The lyricist or the MC has long been the center of attention in the sub-culture of underground hip-hop. There are often many questions about who is the best lyricist or who can beat who in a battle. The topic of discussion also centers on who's new record is wack, and who's new record is heat, or which newcomers sound good and shows promise.  Lyrics, delivery and production all play key roles in judging the quality of underground hip-hop. Noncommercial rap has always had more poetic value than its corporate under produced counterpart.

This week our spotlight is on Michigan’s' own DJ Soko, known for his time spent Djing locally in his area. Now living in Brooklyn, DJ Soko has released a full length album titled "Domino Effect", which boasts a host of special guests. The album includes guest vocal appearances from Guilty Simpson, Ugly Heroes, Marvwon and more. "Land Mine" features underground heavyweight Rasheed Chappell.
