So you may have heard “Cappuccino” or “Bang! Bang!” but if you liked them and you haven’t heard the rest of the album I highly suggest it. This duo from New Orleans got a little help opening for Common, and this debut album has gotten some attention, but not as much as I think it […]

I’m not even gonna front, I slept on Blu’s 2007 debut release Below The Heavens (Produced by Exile) for a good year before I heard it. Not having heard this album is a SIN, seriously the rhymes and feel that Blu brings for a debut album are remarkble and reminiscent of NaS on Illmatic. The […]

So this is about a month old, but if you haven’t seen it you need to. This is a hilarious clip of Diddy and Busta working with T-pain and Akon on the Arab Money remix. Enjoy.

In the midst of all the great releases of 2008, N’Telligence’s album Black Boy Lost really went under the radar, which is a great shame. N’Telligence is a South Carolina MC, which I hadnt really heard of until he did an interview/album download with Kevinnottingham.com. Interview: Check It. The albums production is really funky and […]

Hip-Hop in its purest form is a grassroots movement, its an expression of the people by the people for the people. I think it’s really important to promote acts that are just up and coming, because otherwise the game becomes stagnant. That being said id like to get some “Da Wh@t” exposure for a local […]
