People Under The Stairs. Yes. Always classic, always consistent. Speaking of, Atmosphere, I feel like people hating on this album are just mad hip hop can be grown up and that Slug drops grown man raps. He’s not 20 and heartbroken, get over it. Moodie Black’s Nausea will probably also get complaint it’s not boom bap enough. For those peeps, check out Vanderslice instead. Brazilian Bass and Chinese Man’s Groove sessions are for the party as well.

Carrying on, Badbadnotgood’s III is some chill ass hip hop, jazz, lounge. Throw that in with the new Lykke Li and another Brian Eno project. If you don’t find something you like this week then I am sad for you. Real sad. Boom.

Monday Maxim – Master Your High Life

This week’s maxim comes from Slug off of Atmosphere’s “Feel Good Hit of the Summer Part 2″

I ain't gonna tell you that you better not do it
But master your high, try not to abuse it
Stay away from me if your life's getting stupid
and please stop pretending that it makes better music

While drinking and smoking may be an enjoyable activity don’t fool yourself into thinking it fosters creativity and for Jebus’ sake keep your shit under control.
