and while were on the NAS topic here's the brand new single "Daughters". the 3rd single to drop from the forthcoming "Life is good" Lp. Nas's 10th studio album by the way.
a heartfelt jam about daughters most importantly his. You cant help but feel like in a way being a nas fan you have watched him grow up as hip hop grew at the same time. From rapping about drug dealing to rapping about daughters "Any hood'll tell you Nas helped grow us up"

OC & APOLLO BROWN - TROPHIES
D.I.T.C veteran "OC" links with detroit beat wizard "Apollo Brown" for this album "Trophies".
This is raw hip hop soul beats mixed with intelligent, witty lyricism. OC has always been criminally "slept on" as this album proves. He paints a clear picture of who he is and where he came from in on these 16 tracks. Apollo certainly comes correct and has produced an album anyone with a penchant for dusty boom bap hip hop will enjoy.
Mellow Music Group have even given away the joint "People's Champ" for free

Mellow Music Group hits us again with another slice of pure hip hop. Dj Soko provides the cuts, Gensu Dean provides the beat and detroit legend Guilty Simpson provides the rhymes.
Seriously Guilty is on fire right now. I believe it may finally be his time. Fresh from his amazing colab with Eric Lau Guilty attacks the biters of the world with his unmistakable flow. Very clever cuts on this tune from acapella samples of Biggie, Mobb deep and James Brown.
