Shabazz The Disciple is a seriously gritty rapper from the Red Hook Projects of Brooklyn. Even though he became affiliated with the Wu-Tang Clan early in his career, it took nine years for Shabazz to drop his first solo album due to unfortunate events and strained relationships.

Here's a song that I just heard for the first time the other day, definitely cool. It's by Elzhi, and a quick peek at Wikipedia told me he's a rapper out of Detroit who is a later member of Slum Village.

This song by True Pseudo has been remixed extensively, creating a range of different intensities from the original.
True Pseudo - Freaking Me Out [mediafire]
An older remix of Digitalism's Taken Away, although this remix received less attention.
A collaboration between Frankmusik and Computer Club - a little gritty.

This last song was posted in the Jack Beats Essential Mix, but I don't think they did it as much justice as this remix by Lifelike which keeps the song intact. Although it takes a good minute to roll and another minute to drop.
