This Ain’t Rappin’, This Is Street Hop

 Royce

.. Has sprung a leak! Sorry to bite a Nas line, but it’s my blog so I do what I want, aight?

If you’re anything like me,  you’ve been waiting on Royce Da 5’9”s solo LP Street Hop since he announced it back when Slaugtherhouse was buzzin’ the group’s pre e-fuckery.

I stick by my opinion during TRU’s Brain Trust discussion on the hottest MC in Slaughterhouse:

[Royce]’s the most complete MC, swiftly maneuvering between abrasive battle raps and astute verbal acrobatics. The others are dope, but competition within the crew has elevated Nickle Nine to the height of his ability.. Finally!

To celebrate such a glorious moment for the Detroit MC, I’ll link you to the full download for a limited time only. I won’t mention my connect, ’cause he’s well-aware he’s that dude, just know it’s legit.

Now all we need is that Bad Meets Evil reunion and I can die a predominantly happy hip-hop fan.

Pre-order your copy of Street Hop before it drops October 20th to support real fuckin’ music, my good folks. 

Now I usually don’t do this, but.. Enjoy!

Back To The Feature..

Wale

Back
 

.. is coming soon.. Has landed! Download it here. Presented by LRG.

I might live blog about the long-awaited Wale & 9th Wonder mixtape Back To The Feature, or just talk about it on Twitter since I might have to dip off the computer.

Either way, I’m excited. I’ll post the link when he liberates it. If you can stand it, there’s a chatroom on WaleMusic.com. I have the window open but won’t participate much, don’t feel like dealing with idiots on a beautiful Friday night.

Stay tuned!

Expanding Horizons: Five For Friday

In this Expanding Horizons series, I’ll be bringing you five pieces of musical history from five different genres spanning my collection. My goal is to expose my readers to all types of music that you might not listen to otherwise.

Also, I get to show off how deep my e-crates are. Lord knows I like to do that any chance I get, Ha! The downloads are all .RAR files, which in layman’s terms are compressed packages of multiple files. Search here if you need a program to extract after you download. Or get in touch and I’ll help you out.

I’ll try my best to do this every Friday, so if you have any requests hit me with an e-mail.. Enjoy ya-selves!

Hip-Hop

De La Soul

De La SoulArt Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump (2000)

See Track List & Buy It Here

Lately I’ve been steadily revisiting my De La collection, going in chronological order from their 1989 masterpiece 3 Feet High & Rising all the way to this year’s collaboration with Nike “Are You In?” As Dart once told me, Posdnuos, Trugoy and Maceo comprise the most consistent hip-hop group of all time. How could I disagree? 

Their track record as far as albums is unparalleled, they drop quality material to this day AND put on an amazing live show as I learned last year at Rock The Bells NYC. As a relatively young hip-hop head, Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump was the first of their catalog I was exposed to. I was more of a Wu-Tang, Biggie, DMX & Nas stan before I branched out into other realms of rap. I remember buying it at the local Coconuts (remember those? Now it’s FYE), ripping open the packaging and bumping it in my Sony Discman with them headphones that went on top of your head. You know you had them, stop frontin!

Man, those were the days. Even though the times have changed, the Soul is timeless.

Jazz

Two jazz virtuosos, two discs. ‘Nuff said.

 

Reggae

Bob Marley & Stevie Wonder

Bob MarleyLive With Stevie Wonder (1975)

This is EXTREMELY rare audio of an historic performance when Marley was opening for Stevie during a tour stop in Kingston, Jamaica. The legends shared the stage briefly, for an extended version of “I Shot The Sheriff.”  What resulted was purely magical. After reading about this once-in-a-lifetime event, I hunted this down for years until somehow I finally got my hands on it. I don’t think it’s even available to buy online anywhere, so handle with care. If you’re interested, the promo poster above is available here.

 

R&B/Neo-Soul

India Arie

India ArieTestimony: Vol. 1, Life & Relationship (2006)

See Track List & Buy Album Here

I’ve got to admit, I don’t really listen to India Arie. Not because her music is bad, that’s FAR from the case. I’ve only heard each of the talented multi-instrumentalist/ singer’s albums one time each, mainly because of a lady friend in college. I feel like I have to be in a certain mood to listen.. Let me stop.

Vol. 1 was the most memorable for me. Even though I don’t remember specific songs, it’s the laid-back soulfulness and soft instrumentation that I remember the most. Plus, I upped this because I know females love her. Do I listen to India? Nope, but bitches beautiful women do.

Rock

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi HendrixAre You Experienced?

See Track List & Buy Album Here

Jimi was a god amongst men when he picked up a guitar, elevating the instrument into realms unknown to the average musician. Did you know he was a lefty, but he played a right-handed guitar? A part of me wishes I was born 30 years before I was just so I could have seen his flashy, trip-inducing improvisations first-hand.

 

That should hold you over until next time, Enjoy!
