Phonte - The Life of Kings Ft. Big K.R.I.T. & Evidence

Charity Starts at Home drops Sept 27th.

J Cole - Nobody's Perfect [Ft. Missy Elliot]

                      To tell you the truth, I wasn't too much of a fan of Mr Nice Watch with Jay, maybe I'm
                      just old fashioned or not too interested in ego music - But this shit, this is better, gives 
                      some positive hope to Sideline Story, the added touch of Missy definitely solidifies the track.
                      Absorb & Enjoy.

Paul White - A Weird Day Ft. Homeboy Sandman

                      Infectious UK beat maker teams up with the Ill Sandman. Off Paul Whites released 
                      titled Rapping with Paul White. This dudes an intellect with his beats.

Phonte - The Good Fight [Prod. by 9th Wonder]

                      Phonte does what he does best, touching on different personal issues and struggles with
                      9th's wonderful drums - a formula that always worked when it comes to meaningful 
                      hip-hop music. 

                      Phontes Charity Starts at Home drops Sept 27th. 

Common Sense - In My Own World

                      Common Sense, before he was sued by a reggae group under the same name and was 
                      forced to change to the stage name Common arrived in 1992 (Unamerican Caravan, google 
                      it). The early 90's was the gold rush of hip-hop music, you would find gold by accident, in
                      other words music was beautiful. His debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar displayed his
                      talents yet stuck to his young joyful nature. Arguably his second album titled Resurrection
                      was his best (in my opinion, his best no doubt). Lyrically he was on another level compared 
                      to other emcees, his witty rhyme schemes separated him not only in hip-hop but in music.
                      In My Own World is just an example of the albums smooth jazzy feel and a product of my 
                      Ipod shuffle, I will forever bang out to this track.

MF Doom + Masta Ace Album? "MA DOOM: Son of Yvonne"

                      A few months ago word came out that MF Doom and Radiohead were in the lab together,
                      a remix or two released but nothing much...now this. Supposedly this album is done though
                      and ready be released. Masta Ace is the fucking man, and to wonder how he would throw
                      down with Doom on a beat is interesting nonetheless, for now this will go on the long list
                      of "what if" & "collaborations that were said to happen but never did" albums.

Homeboy Sandman - The Ancient

                      Last summer Homeboy dropped (in my eyes) the best hip-hop album the whole year

Consequence - Everybody Told Me [Prod. by Kanye West]

                       Looking back to some of the biggest tracks in hip-hop, you can't deny Kanye's name is
                       attached to the production to the majority of them. Going back to when Kanye was banging
                       out beats for local Chicago emcee's he has come a long way and excelled in many different
                       levels. That aside, Conequence prepping for his new mixtape, so far so good.

                        Kendricks first single off his upcoming album Section80. Cole and Lamar synchronized
                        a solid track .**Side note, Cole's production has as much impact and timidness as his

Homeboy Sandman - I Knew

                        Homeboy Sandman. Ever heard of em? If you haven't by now, your lacking..thats ok.
                        Homeboy is hands down one of the top ranking underground emcee's that is slowly 
                        making his rise to mainstream exposure, his album The Good Sun was arguably (and I 
                        will argue it, track for track) one of the best hip-hop albums released in 2010. Recently 
                        he created a twitter account for the sole reason to send "I knew" to ?uestlove, why ?uest, 
                        well he wants to be on Jimmy Fallon, and he has a whole internet support group to help 
                        push this. Absorb!

Scott Ramirez: Just an Acapella

Scott showing you that when words roll of your tongue this smooth you don't need a beat.

Chris Brown Feat. Benny Benassi - Beautiful People

                        Its amazing to see an artist like Chris Brown and one of the best DJ's of all time Benny 
                        Benassi on the same track. House, trance & techno is growing each day and it to see if
                        diffusing with hip-hop is insane. It shows how music is such a wild evolution.

Lykke Li - I Know Places

Thom York Recording with MF Doom

                         I have always been a hip-hop enthusiast, it will always be my root and core, but I also
                         spend a lot of time towards other forms of music. With that being said, Radiohead 
                         has been one of my favorite groups in the ranks of Wu-Tang and The Roots, so to see
                         Thom Yorke and Metal Fingers diffusing (again) is some pretty interesting shit. 
                         Hopefully they have something serious in store, wonder how Thom would look 
                         like with a Doom mask on.

Pusha-T - Cook It Down

                         Pusha-T from the Clipses throws down a remix to Bun B's Put It Down, does an
