Jay-Z – I can’t get with that

I’ve been reading Decoded recently, which is a surprisingly good read.  The usual self-rationalization etc., but Jay-Z shows some surprisingly insightful moments.  In the book, he discusses the track I Can’t Get with That, as one of his first music videos when he was really trying to get out there.  Back before labels took him seriously.  He describes it as as a showcase for his various flows, and it’s a pretty amazing thing to watch.


Nieve – California

Silly, feel-good track in advance of the weekend.


Inell Young – “What Do You See In Her”

Inell Young – “What Do You See In Her”

I’m always so mesmerized by watching a record spin and spin and spin.


Omar – The Man

I’m really digging this.

I don’t know too much about Omar (besides what I read on Okayplayer of course).  The whole album is pretty dope, so make a point of checking it out.



The Internet – Dontcha

Two days in a row.  It’s ok to be impressed.


Myron & E – If I gave you my love

It’s been a minute.  New jam.

The Abstract and the what?

In the greatest news to come out of hip hop on 2013, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip have announced that they are dropping a joint mixtape titled The Abstract and the Dragon.

And it drops tomorrow.  To say I am excited is an extreme understatement.
