Imagine morphing TVOTR with Mos Def and Eminem all backed by Art Blakey.
songs of the year thus far. He name drops ISIS too, gotta respect that. Top 5 albums of the year too for me.
Not sure about those comparisons. Thanks for the video though... pretty cool.
I'd never heard of him till this afternoon. Have picked up the LP anyway.
is one of the songs of the year. uplifting and stuff. the rest of the LP is amazing too.
I think he just played some dates over here with the Bouncing Souls? Wish I'd gone to that.
I'm always late to these things. Why does no-one tell me?!
numerous 'favorite tracks of the year' and 'albums of the year' threads... but who reads those right?
We will allow your late pass though :)
I'd pay more attention but it's usually 18 pages of people saying 'Grizzly Bear', so I tend to avoid those threads.
I'd never heard of them either. His flow is a bit good innit and the music is interesting too, brilliant! I'll have to keep an eye out for more stuff.
Been keeping up with your Twitter biznatch - so much stuff coming flying out right now. 2009 is hot. Someone hit me up with a 2009 hip-hop list!
That was a bit Westwood.
I only really know about the instrumental stuff, I've fallen off the rap bandwagon of late unless its grime I know I little about grime...
People like Slugabed, Lukid, Harmonic 313 aka Mark Pritchard, Computer Jay, Dam Funk are making some insane beats.
I'm following you and ya boy bobba, I first saw the POS bit on twonker but hadn't got round to clickin it until you blogged it.
You may dig CYNE. Similar vein.
Didn't find the music or verse as compelling. I like drama, innit!
than POS. Just meant that version was better quality than the one I first linked. But POS is much better. http://rcrdlbl.com/artists/CYNE/track/Just_Say_No has the chorus, I promise, if you still care.
It sounds fresher today! Maybe cos P.O.S has left my head for a bit. CYNE reminds me a bit of early Common, non? Maybe just his voice. Pretty good tho.
Meant to get the album when it came out but you know how things are...:D
Brilliant - artwork / packaging amazing too.
Not as good previous work. But a good teaser.
Any word on the new Eyedea & Abilities. Think I might be picking that up soon.

been meaning to check him out for a bit, think i might make a purchase!
His band Building Better Bombs as well. A lot like Piano Island-era Blood Brothers.
