Been doing some deep dives into some new and old artists over the past few weeks. Thought I’d share the love.
- Chiddy Bang – The Preview is available online. Definitely check out Nothing on We.
- Girl Talk – I’m a serious Greg Gillis fanboi, but damn if All Day isn’t easily his best yet.
- Kid Cudi – The more I listen to his stuff, the more I love it.
- Lupe Fiasco – LASERS is finally out! It demands you use your brain a bit though – you are forewarned.
- Mos Dub – DJ Max Tannone has done a superb mix of Mos Def with lotsa dub. It’s a freakin’ blast!
- William Fitzsimmons – Gold In The Shadows dropped today. Workin’ through it – really distinctive stuff.
- Nappy Roots – These Kentucky gentlemen redefine country! I’m partial to their older work.
- Rhymefest – Seriously – what do they put in the water in Chicago? Che, Common, Cudi, Kanye, Lupe….
- The Roots – I was slow on the uptake on these guys, but How I Got Over is officially over in my track list.
- Sam Adams – Boston’s Boy!
- Swollen Members – Check out Black Magic and Bad Dreams.
Check ’em out, and may an eargasm be upon you.
