royce da 5'9 / eminem

LIVING PROOF ROYCE DA 5'9 / EMINEM

Okay I gotta admit I've never been a huge eminem fan. Even though I could really appreciate his content I just could never get passed the voice and the flow style.

But he kills it on this track. I've been a fan of Royce for a long time and Its nice to see the two reunited after falling out for so long.

Living proof kicks off with a very obvious yet effective funky drummer chop which in all honestly you really can't hate on no matter how many times you hear it, stubblefields pattern is undeniably awesome. Then come in the heavy dillaesque synth stabs transforming it from a nice funky jam into a darker very detroit sound beat.

OTIS

OTIS - JAY Z / KANYE

so hova and weezy drop there first single from the highly anticipated "The Throne" Lp.

sampling heavily from a Redding classic, kanye has once again made a beat so simple and catchy its makes beatmakers around the world think, Why the F%$k didn't i think of that.

The rhymes aren't amazing but they coast through the song in there usual cocky, cool we run the show style attitude. Which is always fun.

Post comments to let me know what you think.

WE MISS YOU

DJ PREMIER/ BIG SHUG - WE MISS YOU (GURU TRIBUTE)


been over a year since GURU aka keith edward elam passed away far too early. Dj Premier and big shug present this heartfelt joint out to the original bald head.

very emotional track going out to one of the greatest Mc's of all time.

For me personally Gangstarr were the reason I got into hip hop in the first place. Guru's monotone voice and cocky yet concious flow on the mic matched with the neck snapping boom bap style beats of primo and his signature style simple yet very effective cuts, for me was the perfect marriage. Guru was "probably" my favorite mc ever. Not Something I think about often but if I had to decide it would be most likely be Guru. I had the good fortune of meeting the man and I was overwelmed at his honest and down to earth attitude and how he had time to speak to every body in the room who were dying to speak to him. A truly amazing soul. "WE MISS YOU".............. MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY.

ROB- FUNKY ROB WAY

ROB - FUNKY ROB WAY

Our good friends at "Analog Africa" have reissued a essential Afro funk Lp in the form of
Rob - Funky Rob way.

Ghanian born "Rob" was hugely influenced by the american r&b performers of the time such as james brown, wilson pickett and ray charles.

He had also had the privilege of performing with benin afro funk royalty "poly rythmo orchestre" and "black santiago".

I've uploaded the title track an absolute afro funk monster, with everything I could hope for from the genre. Nice chant, strong drums, killer bassline and fela style rhythms.

ASHA PUTHLI

ASHA PUTHLI - SPACE WALK

this jam comes from classical indian trained vocalist Asha Puthli from her 1976 LP "The Devil is Loose".

Space walk is a rare groove style jam with Asha's unusual vocal style not unlike "Kate bush".

The first thing to grab you is the killer bass line, followed by the high pitched vocals and then the strong drums.

over her career Asha has worked with the likes of Alice coltrane, Roy ayers, freddie Hubbard and sonny rollins to name a few.

hip hop heads might recognize this from the biggie joint "the world is filled". peep the DL below.
