TALL BLACK GUY- RETURN OF HERE AND NOW













Brand new hip hop/soul vibes from tall black guy productions (detroit). I first heard tall black guy through his incredible re-working of "Fela Kuti's" water get no enemy which was featured on Giles Petersons latest "Brownswood Bubblers" compilation.

this is an amazing sign of things to come from the motor city local.

Dance forever is a deep soulful sexy laidback jam with a dope female hook and some tight rhymes and a nice drum break throughout.

The return of here and now is a more uptempo dancefloor number with an almost P-funk feel with some great boogie funk references, I think I heard a piece from fatback's Backstrokin' in there.

peep the digital/ 7" release here .

Common - Blue Sky (Official Lyric Video)


Common drops the new single of the upcoming album "The Dreamer, The believer at the same time".
Blue skies is produced by No ID who sampled "ELO'S" "Mr Blue Sky". I personally find the beat a little lacking although the concept is interesting the drums could be harder. But chi towns legendary Common pulls it together with strong lyrical content and flow.

not as banging as "Ghetto Dreams" ft NAS but a good sign of things to come for the upcoming album.
