The History of Rap w/Jimmy Fallon, Justin...
I usually despise Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (except for The Roots of course), but I have to admit that this is pretty damn cool.

Corinne flipped this so amazingly. Sounds like some Aretha ish. It might be the most beautiful cover I’ve heard in years. Corinne Bailey Rae - Is This Love

STS - Bun B for President (Prod. By J. Cole)
STS easily does the best Bun B impression I’ve ever heard. Between him and Gilbere Forte, the next generation of Philly hip hop looks to be in good hands. STS - Bun B For President
Video: Duck Sauce - Barbara Streisand
A-Trak knows way more cool people than I do.
Miike Snow - In For The Kill (La Roux Cover)
I’m a huge Miike Snow fan, as well as a huge La Roux fan. So this cover is basically two great tastes that taste great together. Miike Snow - In For The Kill (La Roux Cover)

Can somebody please tell me why we can’t get a real album from Blu?
Florence & the Machine ft. Gilbere Forte - Dog...
Philly upstart Gilbere Forte lends a couple verses to add a little hip hop flavor to what was already an incredible remix. Florence and the Machine feat Gilbere - Dog Days Are Over ( Yeasayer Remix)
Colin Munroe - Bulletproof Monster (La Roux X...
From Colin Munroe: Bulletproof Monster, the second installment in The Revox Suite , was a challenging experiment. The acapella of Nicki Minaj’s verse from “Monster” is in a vault somewhere so I was forced to use it with Kanye’s beat underneath, which made adding new vocals tricky. I also had to digitally alter La Roux’s “Bulletproof” melody to make it...
Mixtape: J Tarin & 3AM Presents: Jeremy Greene...
My dude Jeremy Greene dropped his mixtape yesterday with a little help from J Tarin. Jeremy’s an extremely talented kid signed to Bad Boy and if you like good pop/r&b, this mixtape is definitely up your alley. Track Listing 1. “Intro (I’m Takin Over)” 2. “Code Red” 3. “Soldier” featuring Soufboi 4. “Ain’t No Way” 5....
7L & Esoteric ft. Alchemist & Evidence – Drawbar...
It’s nice to know the 14 year old hip hop head in me hasn’t died completely. So, excuse me while I throw on my graffiti riddled Eastpack backpack from high school, scrunch my face up and nod my head. 7L & Esoteric’s album 1212 is out October 12th. 7L and Esoteric - Drawbar 1-2 (feat. Evidence & Alchemist)

I downloaded this earlier this morning and listened to it on the train with my headphones at max…my head nearly exploded. Proxy - 8000 (Diplo Remix)
Video: Lil’ Wayne - I’m Not A Human Being
I’m pretty sure this is what Weezy’s vision looks like after drinking whatever is in that styrofoam cup of his. Anyway, this is the video for the title track off his upcoming I’m Not A Human Being EP.
The Radio Dept. - The New Improved Hypocrisy
The Radio Dept.’s Clinging To A Scheme album is easily one of my favorites of 2010. “The New Improved Hypocrisy” was not on it but was instead released yesterday ahead of their home country Sweeden’s elections as a political record. While I’m not up on my Swedish politics game and therefore have no clue about its deeper meaning, the track itself will give you a...
Santana ft. Nas - Back in Black (AC/DC Cover)
Santana and Nas collabo off Santana’s Guitar Heaven album due out September 21st. I’m usually of the opinion that hard rock classics should never be covered unless they’re taken in a completely different direction than the original. This track didn’t and it did nothing to sway that opinion. santana - back in black(ft nas)

Black Milk - Over Again (Feat. Monica Blaire)
Black Milk’s Album of the Year dropped today. I urge you to go cop it on Itunes if you still like “real” hip hop. 07 - Over Again (Feat. Monica Blaire)

Beatstreet shot me this bootleg last week and like an idiot I completely forgot to post it up. I’m not the biggest dancehall fan in the world, but this remix is tough. Badman Place (JayCeeOh Remix) Manik & BeatStreet Bootleg

Unkle - The Runaway (ft. Lupe Fiasco)
Via RCRDLBL: Narcotic-laden synths, bone-splintering bass, and purgatory-leaning refrains do their best to command Lupe Fiasco in this spanking new take on “The Runaway,” but dude’s verse stays as effortless as ever. Chalk it up to the UNKLE touch—what other electro-psych outfit could produce a hip-hop collabo as undeniably intense and eerily calm? Tomorrow brings the release of their...
Duck Sauce – Barbra Streisand
I was beginning to think that this track was some short of blogosphere urban legend. Thankfully, it is not. Duck Sauce - Barbra Streisand (Original Mix)
RIP Rich Cronin from LFO
Rich Cronin, of LFO fame, passed away late last night from leukemia. Their self titled debut album was a mainstay at my Jacksonville University dorm hall due to Rich’s childhood friendship with my friend Jeff. Jeff, who eventually went on to be a bit of a star in his own right overseas, could not have been prouder of Rich’s success. I can honestly say, while their music...
Yvette Rovira - Let's Go Out Tonight...
Pop-electro-hip-hop group Electrolightz, who’ve remixed everyone from Lady Gaga to La Roux, lend their talent to Yvette Rovira’s high energy “Let’s Go Out Tonight.” Singer Yvette Rovira’s Latin, funk and old school R&B referencing self-titled debut album is available now. Let’s Go Out Tonight (Electrolightz Remix)

The Foreign Exchange - Maybe She'll Dream of Me
From the moment Phonte and Nicolay met on the Okayplayer message board, The Foreign Exchange has been making spectacular music. ”Maybe She’ll Dream of Me” is the first single off their 3rd album, Authenticity, which is due out October 12 and continues their 3 year streak of making simply good music.

Video: Aeroplane - Superstar
It’s not often a video is released before the actual track, but then again, Aeroplane isn’t your typical German indie rock/hipster band. Well, maybe they are but their music is dope regardless. ”Superstar” is the follow up to the band’s single “We Can Fly” and will drop September 13th.

Holy Ghost! - Static On The Wire (RAC Remix)
Remember when the sound of Brooklyn was hip hop? Well, for the last few years indie bands like Holy Ghost! have hijacked the soundtrack of BKNY. When paired with RAC, this remix of “Static On The Wire” which is the title track of the band’s EP may be in fact be more “Brooklyn” these days than anything Uncle Murder has ever put out. Holy Ghost - Static On The...
Video: Hyper Crush - Ayo
This video dropped a few weeks before I relaunched this little blog of mine, but since Hyper Crush are my peoples I figured I’d put it up on here. It’s also at about 570k views so far so they’re definitely doing something right.
