DJ Jazzy Jeff Doing It For Dilla!

 It's been ten years since we lost the legend J Dilla. Few artists are missed as much as Jay Dee, but his music stays as vibrant and alive as ever.

In this mix, another legend, DJ Jazzy Jeff plays a live set of almost 2 hours of Dilla related classics. Slum Village, The Roots, Common, A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde and so many more. Your head won't stop nodding.

Slum Village: "Expressive" ft. BJ The Chicago Kid & Illa J

Guest vocalists Illa J and BJ The Chicago Kid give this song a feeling that resembles some classic Slum Village records.  That's not the only thing that lends the time travelling feel, it's a previously vaulted beat by J Dilla.  The track is one of a few that have recently emerged, and it's going to be on the new Slum Village full length "Yes!".  The album is out June 16th, preorder it now!



U God: "The Keynote Speaker" ft. Elzhi and Inspectah Deck!

This is a big one right here.  An instant classic posse cut from some rap heroes!  Wu Tang's U God and Rebel INS with Elzhi!  Huge!


Huge new track from Elzhi

This is something you simply can't miss.  If you love hip hop, get ready for one of, if not the best track of the year.
