Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… came out on this date in 1995. Classic.
Ghostface Killah shits on mainstream rap in part two of his 2013 “Top Ten Softest Rappers in the Game” series:
“When he aint startin pillow fights on tour n pollinatin flowers n shit son stays spittin wit that tenderized Stephen Hawking voice… Son could probably make you any origami animal you ask him to namsayin”
And that”s just a fraction of it. Pure comedic gold….
Travis Scott's new mixtape Owl Pharaoh has been on repeat… If you don't know Travis, he's part of the G.O.O.D. Music crew and has produced a bunch of tracks for Kanye. Funny story about the album cover. Travis and Nigel Sylvester are friends and Travis was super stoked on the photo of Nigel jumping the subway tracks, that was shot by 13th Witness… So Travis reached out to 13th Witness and he ended up shooting the cover… all because of BMX!
If you're in need of a good after work/after school/end of the day jam to zone out to and relax, press play on this Funkadelic jam above…too smooth.
It’s been interesting following EL-P’s career all these years. I’ve always been a fan of his music/production and it’s good to see him reaching new audiences.
El-P and Killer Mike (who I only really checked for due to EL-P) make up “Run The Jewels” and will be dropping a free album sometime this month. Listen to 36″ Chain below. If you search the internets you can find more stuff.
I love Vampire Weekend. The new album is SO good. That is all.
