‘Chemistry’ is one of the first words that come to mind when I think of Dela and Blu. I mean, I don’t know anything about the chemistry between the talented producer and well-respected emcee, but these artists together on one track is a guaranteed match. They already did the trick on ‘Mars (Remix)’ off Dela’s first ‘Atmosphere Airlines’ compilation and on the song ‘Vibrate’ off Dela’s amazing debut album.

Kyle Lampert of The Northern Lights reached out to us to tell us about ‘Everyday’, a new track by Divine Rhyme. Although that name wasn’t familiar to us yet, we are glad Kyle gave us a heads up about it. Since 2007 Sir Sheck and Jahizzi form Divine Rhyme, a hip hop duo from New York City. Throughout the years they’ve shared the stage with artists as The Cool Kids, Blu, Kidz In The Hall and even The Roots. But what’s even more relevant than a history of performing, is the fact they released an EP called ‘Announce My Fame’ in 2009, which you can download for free in this post. Now they are back with a new single called ‘Everyday’, which we highly recommend. Live instrumentation, heavy drums, a boom bap sound and fresh rhymes. Enjoy!
