Here goes a little something that I know a lot of y'all will enjoy for 4/20 tomorrow although it's sounding great the day before as well haha. Blastah Beatz is a producer hailing from Portugal that's started to make some real noise on the hip-hop scene around the end of the last decade with placements on projects by legends like Sean Price, Kool G Rap, Cappadonna, Hell Razah and Canibus. Late last year he dropped his incredible "Graduate Studies" featuring some of the best emcees in the game rocking over Blastah's production, including the unbelivable OC true school banger "Free Ya Mind".
With such a dope project as "Graduate Studies" which featured all original production and lots of heavy names I assumed that was obviously Blastah's official debut album. As it turns out, that was just the prequel as the real debut "Ph.D in Beat Making" is being prepared for release in the fourth quarter of 2012. "Mary Juwana" which you see above is an early single released in celebration of 4/20. Lords Of The Underground's own DoItAll and D-Rock of Dysfunkshunal Familee knocks out a love song to their favorite herb over some fat Blastah Beatz. The song also features cuts by DJ Grazzhoppa and the video is edited by J. Harris. Besides the guys featured here, Blastah's LP will feature all new vocals from the likes of Lord Jamar, Inspectah Deck, Kool G Rap, Lord Have Mercy, Cashis and many more.
