MARK 4ORD Crown | Year of the OX
Oxnard, California; home to many gangs, Madlib, Anderson paak…and strawberries, Ironically; we have 2 of Oxnard’s most underground heavy hitters getting us some organic “audio fruit” in this saturated market of hip hop we’re living in.
The beat is some smooth crafted and fly vibes by Crown, and it happens to fit Mark 4ord and Body Bag Ben perfectly. 4ord who is Fresh off his last underground classic “Sun baths in north korea” goes first for about 32 bars and floats over the beat.
Ben is next and seals the deal, stating he will john wick all the witnesses. Very memorable line. Ben Is fresh off his last project he just produced for Canibus entitled Kaiju and is entering his new release for a new EP entitled “Vulgar Display” which will be releasing through Fat beats. The Album will feature Verses from Supreme cerebral as well as 4ord, so this track is a great glimpse of what we will see on the upcoming project
Robby Blair’s debut album, Certified Influence, debuted at #29 on the Apple Music/iTunes charts and with it, he displayed how influenced he was by the music emanating from the borough of Queens. “Bloody Cypher” was a beat Robby recreated by sampling “Bloody Money” & ``Halfway Thug” from Capone-N-Noreaga’s The War Report. The track was highlighted by Scram Jones on his Saturday Scramble Mixshow on Shade 45/Sirius. Robby also had two recent singles premiered by DJ Premier and his Live From Headqcourterz Shade 45/Sirius show. It was these tracks that got Robby invited to perform at SXSW before the pandemic shuttled those plans.
Not taking his foot off the gas, Robby Blair returns with a continuation of the Certified Influence concept, with his new release, Still Under The Influence, and it features another crew of spittas; including Chris Rivers (Big Pun’s son), Slaine, Termanology and Rustee Juxx among others.
With Still Under The Influence, Robby’s influence shifts to focus on the boogie down Bronx and Big Pun. This is evident immediately with the project opener “Punishment Intro” and with Punch’em In The Face 2” featuring Big Pun’s Son, Chris Rivers.
“On my last project Certified Influence, I had a heavy Queensbridge, Capone-N-Noreaga influence, as it had a huge impact on my life and music. Still Under The Influence is heavily inspired by the Bronx/Big Pun” Robby Blair affirms. “You hear it from the jump with the intro track that goes right into ‘Punch’em In The Face 2’ featuring Chris Rivers. To say I’m excited for this project to be released to the world is a huge understatement. This one’s for Hip-Hop!”
In addition to releasing Still Under The Influence, Robby also released a dual visual for “Punishment Intro/Flex Music” which can be viewed below.
Robby Blair’s Still Under The Influence is now available at all DSP’s and features collaborations with Chris Rivers, Slaine, Termanology and Rustee Juxx.

While a handful of male emcees from Montreal’s new wave have garnered the respect of Hip-Hop heads worldwide, the young females from north of the 49th parallel have yet to make their mark. Well that is, until Chung came on the scene.
Chung’s 2021 EP “Chung Shui” caught the ear of tastemakers with its cinematic production and her self-assured, hardcore raps. She has already dropped three high quality videos to support the offering but she’s not done yet. Today she unleashes the visuals for both the EP’s title track “Chung Shui” and standout song “7030.” Like all the videos off the EP, this double feature is directed by Cotola. The “Chung Shui” part of the vid is filmed in Montreal’s Chinatown and features raggamuffin toaster King Shadrock, while the “7030” footage finds Chung and her girls all done up to stroll down the aisles of the local grocery store
