The Stop

"I spit that uptown-body-rock-rolley-hop, and will a nigga ever shut me down? prolly not. Cause ever since I was a young lad I crushed emcees, kickin' ass takin' names at the trolley stop."

13. Wonder ft. Rashaan Ahmad

Wow. I'm so very glad I stumbled across this when logging on today. Courtesy of MS, this album is simply amazing. I grew up on jazz, so I'm naturally in love with this album. The band consists of everyone from Crown City Rockers (Headnodic, Kat O1O, and Max MacVeety), minus Raashan Ahmad and Woodstock. It's an instrumental album, except for for one track (Wonder) that features Raashan, which he kills. Perfect for late night vibing, and jamming none the less. Check it out.

Tonedef was one of the first underground Hip Hoppers that got me into this business. One of the first to spark my interest. Although I haven't listened to any of his stuff in a long time, he's still going strong. Check out this track I spotted over at 2DB, Produced by Kno of the Cunninlynguists.

Tonedef - The Distance

Lock it up, and throw away the key.

There's somthing about Chali 2na's voice and skill that amazes me. Here's a track that is supposed to be featured on his debut album, Fish Outta Water, due out this summer.

The Roots annonce a new album...!!!

n speaking with XXL Magazine the other day, The Roots revealed plans for their ninth studio album to be released this summer. The Legendary just don't stop! Black Thought tells XXL that the new album will be called How I Got Over, a celebratory album which will reflect the story of triumph that is The Roots. The title is a direct reference to the gospel song by Mahalia Jackson that shares the same name, and was the initial inspiration for the record. For more on The Roots, their newest move to late night TV, and their weekly jam session in NYC, read the full article here.

Manic Mondays # 32 - Sunshine

"I wrote this song at a very dark point in my life...the irony of it all is that the end result of this song is very uplifting...discussing everything from my personal issues, single parent families, and even the present state of our soldiers being over seas in a war that they don't understand...Pajozo did the production and Julius Francis laced the hook...this is one of the singles from myself and Pajozo's up coming album project...this song is GOOD if anyone can't feel it they must not have a pulse...props to everyone who supports."

Nas + Damian Marley = ??

So apparently Nasir Jones and Damian "Jr Gong" Marley are supposed to be doing a collabo album together called "Distant Relatives". Its due to drop June 23rd...should turn out pretty promising...

The album features the signature instrumentation and musicianship of Marley with the hard hitting beats and lyrics of Nas. Throughout the course of their musical careers, the duo has taught each other and always admired each other’s style. Since first meeting in 1996 the two artists have shared a mutual respect and camaraderie that was most recently showcased on “Road to Zion,” a standout track from Damian’s critically acclaimed album, Welcome to Jamrock. After having such a positive experience working together, they have now joined forces again for Distant Relatives.

The album title refers not only to the bond of Nas and Damian, but the bond to their African ancestry, which inspired the album both musically and lyrically. “Africa is the backbone of the world and the foundation of everything and Africans are in a situation where they need help more than anywhere else,” notes Damian Marley. “We know there are dire situations here in America but when you look at America—with public libraries and free education—these are not opportunities most Africans have. It’s a completely different scale of trying to help people. As humans beings, we’re part of a human family.”

Nas agrees, “As an American, we have so much even in a so-called recession that a neighborhood like Queensbridge or Red Hook is Beverly Hills compared to the way people are living in Nigeria, Sierre Leone, and Ghana,” says the emcee. “So obviously if we making records with that theme, there’s gonna be things I want to build on. I think Africa has a lot to teach us.”

Pok[her] Face

New track from Kid Cudi. It was posted up on all the other blogs already, but in radio rip form, which really sucked. So instead of damaging your ears with that version, I waited until the CDQ came out so you could be graced with the track in its full glory.

The Cudder's plans

Check Kid Cudi's plans for his Sky Might Fall record.


The dude Add-2 is back at it again after his bangin mixtape The Tale of Two's City. Check this newly dropped track, fresh out of the oven.

Add-2 releases the brand new introspective song "Starter Jacket" which features production from UK producer/DJ Jaguar Skills. The song is less of a fashion statement as it is more so a reflective gateway into the thoughts of the young Chicago emcee. A video for Starter Jacket is currrently in production and will be directed by hip hop documentary/film company Precise Minds. Add-2 is currently preparing new material for his upcoming project, promising more collaborations with Jaguar Skills, Slot-A, Ill Meel, Antman Wonder, Aaron and more.
