[MP3 + Music Video] Cardi B – Bodak Yellow

Serious late pass on this one. We won’t even lie: been so busy as of late on the day hustle and other stuff that we’ve been oblivious to some records having blown the f-ck up. Case in point: this Cardi B “Bodak Yellow” record which, arguably, might be the hip-hop song of the summer? And in case you ain’t know what the f-ck a ‘Bodak Yellow’ is….

[MP3] The Roots – It Ain’t Fair Feat. Bilal (From The “Detroit” Soundtrack)

Been hearing mixed things on the Detroit movie from a socio-political point of view, but the soundtrack is actually pretty decent: mostly 60’s/Motown (natch) soul and R&B and not just the well-worn, obvious selections à la The Big Chill.

The standout new track on the album though, “It Ain’t Fair” by The Roots and Bilal channelling Curtis Mayfield is an absolute scorcher of a protest soul anthem, perfect for these Black Lives Matter, Trump era times we live in. Seriously, you could write a thesis on this track.

It probably would’ve have happened anyway but hearing it for the first time in the wake of having just watched the current so-called President of the United States advocating, even in a joking manner as he’s now claiming, for more police brutality, had us feeling all the feels. We had to take a moment. Goosebumps (and even a few tears, it’s that powerful) for real. Just mind-blowing brilliance.

[MP3 + Music Video] Knox Fortune – Lil Thing

We caught this one on our Soundcloud feed (BTW, WTF, Soundcloud??!) but when we checked our email (a rare occurrence nowadays so act accordingly but still please don’t expect a rapid response, life is busy nowadays!) we saw the homies from Biz3 had sent this to us too with the following promo blurb attached:

Chicago producer / artist Knox Fortune has his solo LP coming and here’s a new track / video from it. Shot with a super 16 camera and at his former abode (his recently torn down home dubbed Chillers Paradise) the track is drenched in summer vibes and easy to see why he’s frequently called on by many of Chicago’s elite artists for guest vocals (Chance The Rapper) and production (Towkio, Joey Purp, KAMI)

Now go hit play on this while you head outdoors and enjoy the glorious weather this Sunday and the rest of the weekend!

[MP3] Dr. Dre – Gunfiyah


[MP3] DJ Shadow – Systematic feat. Nas

After that Matt Ox post, I think I need to reset the cred’ balance here on the site. A track by DJ Shadow with Nas should do the trick! Lol…..
