Gift Of Gab + A-F-R-O + R.A. the Rugged Man - "Freedom Form Flowing"


Holy shit. This is a gigantic track, obviously ... BUT, the thing about it is, it's that kind of track that makes you question the boundaries of what is possible in hip hop. With "Freedom Form Flowing" we not only have an unprecedented trio of chop MASTERS but, a vibe that is going to make you question your very ears.


How is it possible, that these guys could be THIS incredible!? Well, we have no idea ... but wow, do they ever remind us of what we love so much about this hip hop music. This is legendary.

Classic of the Day: Blackalicious - First In Flight

Blackalicious' 'Blazing Arrow' was released in 2002, two short years after their full length debut 'Nia'.  The album artfully showcased the skill and creativity of the duo of mc Gift of Gab and producer/dj Chief Xcel.  'First In Flight' features the legendary Gil Scott-Heron and is a stand out on a brilliant, outstanding album.


New from Gift of Gab

Blackalicious, Quannum, Mighty Underdogs, and his solo stuff, Gift of Gab is undoubtedly one of the dopest lyricists of all time.  Enjoy this new joint from the man himself!
