Grippin’ Grain – L.E.$. feat Big K.R.I.T.

Its pretty interesting what Big K.R.I.T. did with that Usher Superstar beat. Big K.R.I.T. most likely will be on XXL’s freshman cover. I mean, why wouldn’t he be?

U Know Who U Are – Fly.Union

I’m big on Jerreau, he’s a promising young artist. Can’t wait till ‘The Greater Than Club’ is ready for the internets consumption. Fly.Union don’t get their just deserve when it comes to blog posts. It’s amazing how you can hear Jerreau’s mind pacing in his rhymes. They’re just so intricate, precise and witty. Hopefully he’ll find the success he wants/needs without having to “dumb it down”I believe there is a market out there. Somebodies just going to have to go out there and find it.

Video is sorta thin though right? Oh yea this is over “Aston Martin Music”

I’m Coming Home – J.Cole


You see Laura Izibore! (black dress)

If you didn’t know this was made for Diddy peep that line “I wonder if Andre Harrell knew how great I would be when he fired me“. I really like the hook. Alex da Kid did the beat & it’s fire!

Although I still think Drake is a better artist J.Cole isn’t too far behind. He’s really grown on me. I’m going to go Run and tell everyone like Martin Lawrence. Suited up in my J.Cole uniform equipped with Dreamville pom-pom’s. Villematic is coming.

1st Time – Talib Kweli ft. Consequence

I really like Consequence. His rhymes are…lets go with interesting. Although The Con’s doesn’t rap on this Kweli track he lends vocals on the hook. The beat is a sampled and chopped Marvin Gaye snippet. I like the vibe.

I am anxious to see/hear what that Community Mixtape will be like. “It’s just some track from a whole bunch of fans worldwide” is a pretty vague description. It can go so many ways with that. Different artists, different covers to Kweli songs or even different producers. I’ll have to remember to post that. Somebody remind me?

Throwback Thursday : Horse & Carriage – Cam’ron

Man when this came out Ma$e was poppin’! Cam is right, if he would have made an appearance in the video it would have boosted Confessions of Fire sales. Cam had a shit load of other cameo’s though. Canibus, Wyclef, Fat Man Scoop, Styles P, and Tyson Beckford to name a few. This was also our first visual of Jim Jones. Who would have thought back then Cam’ron would become The Cardinal of New York? He’s come along way but is back with Jimmy. It’s funny how somethings are too far down the road to reconcile but other’s come full circle.

Check the “remix” after the jump. It features Silk Tha Shocker, Charlie Baltimore & Big Pun. I love my dukies!

Revolutionary Suicide – Huey P. Newton via Lupe Fiasco’s Book Club

Eloquently tracing the birth of a revolutionary, Huey P. Newton’s famous and oft-quoted autobiography is as much a manifesto as a portrait of the inner circle of America’s Black Panther Party. From Newton’s impoverished childhood on the streets of Oakland to his adolescence and struggles with the system, from his role in the Black Panthers to his solitary confinement in the Alameda County Jail, Revolutionary Suicide is smart, unrepentant, and thought-provoking in its portrayal of inspired radicalism.

This week Lupe Fiasco’s Book Club read’s a book from Huey P. Newton. I guess this nigga Lupe isn’t a light reader, heavy thinker and raps sometimes.

Royal Flush [mixtape] – CyHi Da Prynce

Def Jam/G.O.O.D. music signee CyHi Da Prynce released this mixtape a couple week’s ago but I’m just getting around to hearing it. Truthfully I’ve avoided listening to CyHi because of the hoopla that surrounds him but he is everywhere so I gave in to good marketing. Although it is a pawn in a guerilla marketing scheme I must admit CyHi’s mixtape is impressive. He seem’s like he’s ready to make a dent in hip-hop’s facade next year. Unfortunatley I still won’t be checking up on him but I’m sure his music will make it’s way to me. That is what G.O.O.D. marketing does isn’t it?

Mighta Missed Monday – Chance Fischer

I present to you Chance Fischer the Ivy league rapper. It’s interesting how broad the genre of “rap” is. It doesn’t matter what your background is you can become a successful rapper. Anyhow Mr. Fischer is no to exception to the sentiment. In the second half of 2010 alone he has released 3 projects via bandcamp. That’s a staggering number in and on itself nevermind the fact he’s still in college pursuing a Hotel Administration degree. Chance is a good lyricist with punches but he actually makes good songs. Very rare to see in young hip-hop. PMD gives you the chance –pardon the pun– to catch up on an artist you mighta missed.
