It was 2003 when Freeway grabbed Just Blaze to produce the bulk of Free's 2003 debut, "Philadelphia Freeway", and almost a decade later both men are legends in the game who have finally reunited for "Early". See more...

I have to give it to the man, he comes through on "Compton". I would still rather hear more of Kendrick going over this dope Just Blaze beat, but still, overall this is a release worthy of a highly anticipated album.See more...

Fittingly, I just finished having a little convo about this very topic via ye olde Twitter. I don't understand why do many people seem to think Fabolous sucks. Yeah, I know he's had some radio singles, but look over the course the man's career - dude can rhyme. See more...

If you dig hip-hop, rap nerdery and hilarity - and if you don't, I don't know what the fuck you're doing on RefinedHype - then you've been digging the Combat Jack show podcasts over the last few weeks. Do I even have to tell you that this week's edition featuring Big K.R.I.T. is a must listen? See more...

I'm posting this new Gasface x Just Blaze "Just Did It" mixtape for two reasons. First, the rap nerd in me can't get enough of some behind the scenes stories. For example, apparently Freeway's "Flipside" was originally intended for Beyonce. Huh - I guess I can kind of hear Beyonce on that beat. See more..See more...

I don't think I really even have to issue a "rap nerds only" warning for the Dallas Penn and Combat Jack podcasts. If you're even bothering to read this, you know the dynamic duo are for serious rap nerds only. And you also know that when they bring on the legendary Just Blaze and DJ Premier to talk about, well, everything, that shit's some must listen-ness. See more...See more...

I'm always wary of getting caught up in the co-sign game - more often that not a name attached to a track is just that, nothing more - but I won't front, it caught my attention to see Just Blaze's name attached to OnCue's just released "New Religion" single. Listen and download...See more...

Pharrell and Swizz Beatz aren’t the only Hip-Hop producers to partake in sneaker collaborations. SUPRA Footwear recently enlisted Just Blaze to create a limited edition Skytop II for his birthday (January 8). Those who follow the Jersey native know that not only is he a DJ and reality star, he is an avid sneaker collector so its only right that he would want to have his own design. See more...See more...

At this rate it's only a matter of weeks before we have an album's worth of tracks that didn't make Eminem's "Recovery". Following the obviously rough draft "Give Me the Ball" and the not really that good ""Oh No", the latest unwanted Em material to find its way onto the interwebs is the maybe, possibly ok "Fly Away".

We're both hip-hop nerds. We were both fascinated by that Big Pun "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It (Remix)". We're brothers in hype. It was only natural that RefinedHype linked up with The Hypemen (a.k.a. the good folks behind ItsTheReal.com and Jensen Karp) to become the official download source for their podcast series. This week, the men of hype link up with legendary boardsmith Just Blaze.... Listen and download...See more...
