I can't wait until may 10th for Tyler's sophmore album Goblin!

Time for a classic

I had a rough day at work yesterday and a lot of other B.S. that has left me in a really pissed off mood and I find that music can often sooth me and mellow me out. That's why I've been listening to this Big L basically on repeat for the last 48 hours. Many consider Big L to be the greatest MC of all time and I don't think they are far off from the truth. Here's a video for one of my favorite tracks off Big L's Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous:

Lil B Based God

The west coast rap scene right now is a very interesting things. With the help of the Internet many weird off beat rappers have gotten their names out through gorilla internet marketing. Lil B is perhaps the most well known of these and has crafted a completely unique asthetic for himself. Whether you love him or hate him you have to recognize the importance of what he has done. Here's a video for one of his popular songs Wonton Soup:

What do you guys think of the Based God?

Cannibal Ox

Here's a track from one of my favorite albums The Cold Vein by Cannibal Ox. The Cold Vein came out in 2001 and unfortunately besides one Live album Cannibal Ox has yet to release a sophomore album. If you're a fan Doom, Madlib, Dangermouse, etc. I'm sure you'll like this track so check it out:

Kanye West is at it again

Kanye West is no stranger to controversy and limelight from his accusations of Bush as a Racist:

To the interruption of Taylor Swift at the VMA's. West has earned a name for himself by causing trouble, and with the release of his upcoming album it looks like he will hold his reputation.

What you're looking at is the album cover to his new album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" slated for release November 22. The cover is already shocking many, including Wal-Mart Executives who refuse to allow it in their stores. Kanye's response was a tweet expressing his frustration: "Banned in the USA!!! They don't want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!"

Personally, I am looking forward to the new album, because if you're like me you know behind the celebrity persona Kanye puts forth there is rock solid mc/producing talent and if Dark Twisted Fantasy is anywhere near the level of his previous releases, it's definitely an album worth looking forward to.


A music video from the quirky Madlib, the track is Come on Feet, off the album The Unseen, released as his Quasimoto alias.
