I have a decent amount of new music to share for the first time in a few weeks.

Just found out about his group, Actual Proof and I have to say I’m impressed. This duo just signed to 9th Wonder’s record label so I expect this track to be an example of the kind of music is to come. This track is produced by frequent 9th Wonder collaborator, Khrysis.

OneBeLo was the first MC that I truly became I fan of. He’s still one of my favorite rappers of all time and I’ve been anxious to hear his long overdue next album. This is his newest track.

He can rap. Forget the “rappers” he hangs out with, the rappers he equated to, and the genre he’s placed in. In that group of talentless newcomers, Kendrick Lamar stands out because of his potential and lyrical ability.

Here’s my attempt at revisiting an artist I said I would get back to you guys about. More great chill music from ShinSight Trio.

Behind the scenes of Nas & Common’s “Ghetto Dreams”.

A psychedelic track from the Whitefield Brothers’ newest album released on Now Again Records.



More dope music I found while stumbling around on some of the blogs I follow. I’m behind because I was studying for the GRE but now I have a big chunk of music to share so not all bad.

Just came across this artist too. AF the Naysayer is his name and the track is produced by Luke St. John. Very intelligent, smooth raps right here. The beat is nice also.

Clan Destined is a new group with a lot of ability. This track is produced by LA based producer, P.U.D.G.E.

This track is off of Paul White’s upcoming album, Rapping with Paul White. Right when I was going to forget about this guy he makes a smart move like this. The above track features Guilty Simpson. If you like make sure to look out for the album.

Spring Splash

Since today is an exciting for me because I get to see three performers that I’ve never see live before, here’s some of my favorite tracks from the artists that will be at Spring Splash today in Riverside, CA.

I didn’t know about this group until I saw them on the bill for the show but after getting their debut project, Live Re-Mixing 101 and watching their youtube videos I quickly became a fan. They are doing something very different and unique but above all it sounds very dope. A keyboardist, a turntablist and a drummer playing live remixes is no easy task but they make it look so.

One of my favorite LB tracks. A Dilla beat and an Elzhi feature? Nothing else you to ask for.

9th Wonder did right by me after splitting with LB, when he started working with Murs. Murs is probably one of the most popular west coast mc’s around and you either love him or hate him. For me its the former, hes got talent and something to say that I haven’t heard a million times already. Go out and get Fornever if you haven’t already.

The only mc from his generation still making quality music. Unlike snoop and all of Nas’ other peers that started coming up at the same time, Nas hasn’t compromised his music. For the most part at least, I thought the last album was an exception to that because it had too many features by random people that had no place being on a Nas album (specifically Chris Brown and Keri Hilson..) and how many songs are you gunna let ¬†Chrisette Michele be on? seriously.. anyway, I’m still looking forward to hearing Distant Relatives.
