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..."

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.

Clyde Guevara's new album #FreeJAH

Clyde Guevara's debut album #FreeJAH is here, and the world is not ready.  Guevara comes from Red Hook Brooklyn, and he's now based in Los Angeles.  The move followed the death of his brother Jah, just months after his release from prison.  The music is clearly impacted by this, and you can hear what might be the effects of a new setting in some songs where it sounds like a weight has been lifted off of Clyde's shoulders.  We shared the track 'Still Illin' earlier this month, and still can't get enough.  This is THE new hip hop record you need to hear.
