New music from Rapper Big Pooh, with Apollo Brown on production. Called “Augmentation,” the track is off Rapper Big Pooh’s upcoming album, Words Paint Pictures, out on March 24.
In case you missed it, here’s two Gs, Kenny and Warren, performing the classic track “Regulators” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Weird on paper, this actually somehow works, and both dudes look like they’re having a blast. #RIPNATEDOGG
I’m late to the game on this dude for sure, but over the last few days I’ve been listening to everything I can find by Robert Glasper.

Jon Ronson (a talented author who wrote the Psychopath Test) details his quest to meet and talk to the creator of Mingering Mike, and his journey to having his albums wind up in a museum. Hadar was […]
OFWGKTA member Hodgy Beats released a new mix tape last week with producer Don Cannon. The full tape is available over at the OFWGKTA Soundcloud page, but here’s my favourite track, “HakuemeniB”:
Let me start this off by saying I have not independently verified this. Relying on Teambackpack.net (which, if you haven’t checked them out on the web or on Facebook, you are missing out) which in turn relied on MassAppeal.com, I discovered this morning that Zion I has released what they claim to be their last […]
Spotted over at Word is Bond, here’s a shiny new video from Jared Xavier. Featuring a smooth beat with shimmering keys and, in the background, a trumpet sample that drifts across the drums, the visuals match the tune perfectly. Check it out.
