Nas – The Season

Kendrick has a banger on the way. Prhyme’s early efforts sound solid. Gambino made a proper Atlanta-appreciation mixtape. Maybe hip-hop isn’t dead after all? This new NaS record continues that trend with an excellent new single off his highly anticipated next album. “The Season” will surely wow hip-hop heads with lyrical wordplay you’d come from […]

J. Cole – Let Nas Down ft Nas (remix)

Nas is obviously one of the G.O.A.T.’s in hip-hop. However, I was still surprised to hear J. Cole craft a “letter to my mentor” cut a la Kanye’s “Big Brother” on Cole’s sophomore album, Born Sinner. “Let Nas Down” ended up being one of the top tracks on a sure-to-be underrated album, but Nas actually […]

2012 Wrap-Up: Top Albums of the Year #20-15

20. Poliça-Give You The Ghost The debut from Minneapolis duo Bryan Olson and Channy Leabeagh aka Poliça is drenched in so much vocoder it would make rapper/sanger Future jealous.

New Mixtape: The Nark Knight Rises

I love when mixtape titles are this easy. “The Dark Knight Rises” is expected to have a running time of 2 hrs and 45 minutes. While this mixtape doesn’t have that many songs, it is a super-sized edition. I was all ready to send this on Tuesday and then Brother Ali, Kanye, Big Boi and […]
