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…

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.”
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, here. Boom.
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.
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.
