Sum 01 "Back In Tha Day"

 

A favorite MC of ours, Sum 01 is thankfully back again with another incredible banger, this time with the incredible Savilion (of Swamp Thing and much more) on production. This is an uplifting, no nonsense beats and rhymes type track that will have your head nodding instantly, and will have you pressing play again and again. You're gonna love it, we promise.

Atmosphere's New Video for 'Virgo'

Atmosphere released their latest video and announced their new album Mi Vida Loca.  Like so many albums from the acclaimed duo the cover is a photograph of Slug, a portrait of the lyricist that reflects the raw honesty of the music.  The photo gives you a glimpse at what you'll hear on the first song.  There's a kind of sad honesty on 'Virgo' that seems to come from wrestling with determination to remain optimistic, and accepting that the world is a mess and you can't fix everything.  Even before Slug's verse begins the guitar and organ manage to say more than you'd ever expect.

And then he begins "I pledge alleigance to myself..."

Preorder Mi Vida Loca here!

August Greene (Robert Glasper x Common x Karriem Riggins) - Optimistic (feat. Brandy)

 Wow. What a team, what a tune. We could barely believe our ears when we heard this one.  Common, Karriem Riggins, Robert Glasper and Brandy! This production is exception, the vocals are out of this world, and the raps are absolutely razor sharp.

This is an absolute instant classic, we are gonna love this forever.
