The second single off SkyBlew‘s Backdraft-produced Journeys In 1st Person offers much promise and acts as a great incentive to not sleep on North Carolina or Virginia over the next couple of weeks. If this hasn’t convinced you, check out “StreetLights”, the first single that found itself at #12 on DJ Booth’s Independent Music Charts:

It’s been too long since I’ve shared – the busiest time of my young life is coming to an end and I have so many vibes to relay.  Here’s a taste of what’s to come: chill beats upon chiller beats upon the chillest beats.  All I’ve been doing for the past months is grooving to instrumentals whilst reading, writing, graphing, reading…

The White Shadow has helped me through, setting an upbeat, groovy, smooth environment for me to work with.  Dude knows how to make beats.

I have been doing all of my work this week to this on repeat, I must have listened to it over a hundred times by now.

A beautiful homage to Dilla‘s “Fall in Love”.

NBC- “A Voz”

I wouldn’t lie to you when I say that this song is definitely one of the best of all time, especially with regards to Portuguese hip hop. I don’t know anything about this dude NBC and I can’t understand anything I’ve read about him. Please fill me in if you have any info.

Beatspill Radio Promo

 Mondays from 6-8pm

WMUA 91.1FM Amherst, MA

Because it’s Freddie Gibbs, and then because it’s produced by Madlib. 

And because it’s Earl Sweatshirt (and Domo Genesis).*

Just came across this supergroup, and I’ve been listening to the near-20-year-old mixtape non stop.

Children of the Corn is Big LCam’ronMase, McGruff and Bloodshed.

This is what I’m doing today. I’m looking forward to getting lost in the music.

Da Inner Soul of Yancey

Some of the opening words:

“Compilation of classic De La over Jay Dee joints. See Dilla didn’t just produce for us, he was an inspiration, and often a kickstart to many De La albums. A soft-spoken dude, his style and approach to producing will forever leave a loud imprint on hip hop.”

Another lesson in street life that hopefully no one ever has to deal with, though you don’t always notice that you have to watch out for the pretty girls.

You know what they say, “Sex is blinding”.

Before you label Macklemore as a poster-boy for PG-rated, suburban white kid raps, I think you should hear what he had to say before the fame and The Heist.

Hands down, I think that this is my favorite song of his.

Off of The Language of My World

I’m just goin’ to freestyle and spit what’s in my gut.
And if you want to you can go and label me conscious,
But remember there’s a kid at a bus stop beat boxin’,
Whose life will be affected by what’s inside of his Walkman
