Out today on New Dawn Records, the specially commissioned remix by label affiliate Qadir, “Bismillah” originally appeared on the 2021 album ‘Lead by Example’ by London’s Ramson Badbonez, his debut as a producer.
This re-work is a rare concoction of cool groove funk & soulful beats fused together with a blend of deep bass, guitar licks, brass stabs and Arabian strings. The compelling soundtrack fuels rhymes flowing coast to coast like buttah on toast, the jewels delivered by Brooklyn’s seasoned campaigner Justo the MC, San Diego’s Johaz from Dag Savage and prolific Nebraskan Sleep Sinatra.
A prime cut laced with slick lyricism and beats, levels cranking the heat dial up to maximum.

Released today through New Dawn Records, the explosive new album “God of Barz” by Brick City’s lyrical marksman Tru Trilla.
Planting a flag for both the Garden State and the classic east coast sound, the veteran rapper and Lords of the Underground affiliate has concocted an immense piece of work, rammed full of passionate bars, skillful wordplay and intelligent rhymes. Championing the cause of the underdog, the disengaged and the traditional values of hip hop itself while tackling political tensions of racial profiling, corruption and deprivation, knockout lines are delivered with the ferocity of a prize fighter. Newark natives Middy Murdock, Fly Kwa, Confucious and fellow 050 Boyz member Prince Ak are the featured artists, intensifying the energy with their own gritty lyricism.
The production brings extra layers and dynamics courtesy of Chicago’s DNA Beatz, Barcelona’s Sumerio Square, the UK’s Chat One and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve), originally of New Jersey and now resident in Los Angeles. Rugged, raw and hardwired into the psyche of the street, this one’s for the heads.

Following on from “Word of God” and “God’s Sympathy”, the Brick City lyrical marksman brings more of his customary savage firepower to “God’s Mercy”. Going on a ferocious verbal rampage through a series of relentless hard bars and punchlines, the raw energy is intensified by the explosive production courtesy of Chicago’s DNA Beatz. Set the dial high and prepare for the onslaught, this is the real deal.
“God of Barz” includes further production by Jamal Neuve (aka Clinton Place NJ/LA), the UK’s Chat One and Barcelona’s Sumerio Square with guest featured artists Prince Ak, Fly Kwa, Middy Murdock and Confucious all reppin’ the Garden State.
