‘Ain’t That Peculiar’ (Marvin Gaye)- Oddisee Remix

This remix is kind of the perfect joint for a Saturday, or any other day of the week for that matter. Oddisee kills it and this song just wedges itself into your psyche and creeps around for awhile, it gets repeat and heavy rotation. One of the greats paying homage to one of the greatest…

Video of the Week: Atmosphere “Ain’t Nobody”

via Mass Appeal

Here’s a pretty great video from Rhymesayers royalty, a little NSFW in a good way (but still tame enough to stay up on youtube.) Shout out to Robert Palmer’s “Simply Irresistible.”


A Song for the Weekend

Still ruminating over the new Aceyalone album that dropped this week. In the meantime here’s a more more sentimental joint from Z-trip featuring Aceyalone and Mystic (who disappeared after one album and I have no idea why.) As they say…”Everything Changes.”


Video of the Week- Aaradhna “Lorena Bobbitt”

This is just a great video for such a great song. Aaradhna is coming straight outta New Zealand and is belting out some classic soul/r&b (and a little rock steady) with her harsh but feminine modern touch. And the video’s pretty hilarious (directed by Tom Gould). I hate to make the comparison but she holds her own amongst Amy Winehouse and Adele all the while still making it her own. Check out more of her, hereBoom.

Song of the Week- Donny Hathaway “Jealous Guy”

This is actually one of my most cherished 45s; it’s not worth a lot and it’s beat up and I have no idea how I actually obtained it but it’s awesome. There’s something about this cover that just cuts deep. Enjoy suckers.


Song of the Week- Jean Grae “How To Break Up With Your Girlfriend”

Jean Grae is one of the best emcee’s hands down, love her. Which is why I am super stoked to be heading off to a hip hop conference today with her AND Pharoahe Monch! Two of the best in the game. In honor of that here’s her flipping Paul Simon’s “50 ways to leave your lover,” produced by M-boogie.
