Le$ is already back after dropping the Menace mixtape a few days ago with another joint.
Stumbled upon this get-you-through-your-day gem in my inbox and decided to bless the people. Apollo the Great is on the come-up, with the beautifully executed assist from Sean Price. Check it out.

It’s that time of year again when hip-hop heads honor one of the best to ever do it, Christopher Wallace aka The Notorious B.I.G.
Damn…R.I.P. to the Li’l Kim we knew in 1995, too.
You wouldn’t be able to tell Joy Denalane was a German singer-songwriter listening to this joint, but it’s the truth, as was this song to me. She calls in none other than the Chef Raekwon to spit a few mellowed-out bars over the familiar “Heaven And Hell” backdrop. Great song. Great video.
It’s really hipster-ish for me to be upset at myself for just discovering a band only to find that they’re already the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. I slept soundly. Sleigh Bells is like listening to a children’s choir that’s probably about to set your home on fire after they get finished singing…at Christmastime. To make things ten times weirder, come to find out Sleigh Bells consists of female vocalist Alexis Krauss and guitarist Derek E. Miller…there are no actual evil children involved in making the gloriously twisted music that the band brings to the table.

Back when a young G was trying to coordinate Clark’s Wallabees and rest the jeans just so on top of ’em before school, Cappadonna dropped The Pillage, an album that is one of my favorite Wu albums of all time. This joint dropped in ’98, but this video was shot recently as part of a larger project making videos for older classics that never got them. The saga continues…Wu-Tang…Wu-Tang!
Off the upcoming Chicago Style mixtape, the O’My’s released this joint. Definitely grabbed my attention. Scrambling to find the mp3 as I post this…
Though I’m usually the guy screaming for rappers to stop trying to sing on tracks, I like this guy’s style and ability to make what could be so wack turn out so seamless. I also like how minimalism is coming back to hip-hop visually and sonically. Focus on the music, not the budget. Oh, and on the ones and twos, DJ Rich-A gets busy at the end.
If you’re still sleeping on Maffew Ragazino, you’re really missing out. The dude paints some vivid pictures and dropped an album of straight fire last year. Get familiar. Here’s his latest joint.
