Update 36 (One Be Lo)

And yet another post with amazing tracks! :P

I'm just going with one of my favorite MC's that's out there doing his thing at the moment, One Be Lo. It's such a shame that not many people know about him as he is talented and has smart lyrics. I love his style and am bumping alot of his albums.

Some great tracks are listed below, they are all from the following albums:
- S.O.N.O.G.R.A.M.
- S.T.I.L.L.B.O.R.N.
- Project F.E.T.U.S.
One Be Lo
The Album titles are acronyms. They stand for:
- Sounds Of Nahshid Originate Good Rhymes And Music
- Subterraneous/Trackezoids Invest Lost Lyrics Bringing Old Rhymes New
- For Everyone That UnderStands

One Be Lo - Propaganda
One Be Lo - Water World
One Be Lo - enecS eht no kcaB
One Be Lo - Anybody
One Be Lo - The UNDERground
One Be Lo - Alphabet Soup

Now I heard about his new album that's going to be named B.A.B.Y. (Being A Black Youth) but I don't have an exact date on the release. If anyone knows, comment! I heard one of the tracks but it has been removed from Youtube already.

I'm really looking forward to get that new album, let me know what you think of One Be Lo!


Update 35 (Mos Def and MF DOOM)

Sup guys!

So I found these remixed tracks of MF DOOM and Mos Def. I love both MC's and it was done real well in my opinion. I didn't look into it much so I'm not sure if it's official or fanmade but it sounds great if you ask me!
Mos Def vs. MF Doom - Words of the Day
Def vs. DOOM

Now this is not really anything new but here's an interview with Mos Def where he praises MF DOOM, I think it's a great video because he talks and quotes MF's rhymes/tracks just like I would with friends. It's great seeing great MC's really appreciating others.

And here Mos Def is seen covering MF DOOM's track Accordion live

I'm just hoping DOOM and Mos would get together and form a duo just like DOOM did with Madlib, Dangermouse and Ghostface + J Dilla. They could be Mos DOOM? ;)

Them two rapping with Madlib at the boards? I think it would be great!

What do y'all think?


Update 34 (Mos Def, Slick Rick, Madlib, Dead Prez)

Number thirtyfour!

Here's something I'm really looking forward to. Gutter Rainbows! the new album by Talib Kweli. It's scheduled to be released on January 25th. I'm really curious on how it's going to be, I've always liked Talib for his 'conscious hip-hop' style so I'm expecting something real good !
One track I found on Youtube that will be on the album:
Talib Kweli - I'm On One
Come on son, I'm on one!

Talking about Talib always makes me think of Mos Def or them forming the Blackstar combination. Here's a mad nice track by Mos Def featuring Slick Rick on a beat produced by Madlib (Album = The Ecstatic)
Mos Def - Auditorium (feat. Slick Rick) (prod. Madlib) 
Also reliving the Blackstar:
Blackstar - Definition  

I also wanted to put some tracks by Dead Prez up here. So here goes:
Dead Prez - It's Bigger Than Hip-Hop 
Dead Prez - Hip-Hop 


Update 33 (Nas, Damian Marley, Masta Ace, Phi-Life Cypher)

Updating that blog..!

Used 2 tracks of this album (Distant Relatives) by Damian Marley and Nas already in the Nas post. Mixing hip-hop with reggae which was very nicely done if you ask me.
Masta Ace

Nas & Damian Marley - Nah Mean
Nas & Damian Marley - Tribes at War

Masta Ace, a straight genius:
Masta Ace - Too Long (feat. Apocalypse)
Masta Ace - Big City

Some random great tracks,
Life MC from Phi-Life Cypher. Phi-Life Cypher as an underground hip-hop group from the UK. Definately worth listening to.
Life MC - Bomb Propaganda
Phi-Life Cypher - The Racists
Life MC is known for being a freestyle genius, check it out here
Life MC - 10 Minute Freestyle


Update 32 (Atmosphere, Slug, Murs)

What up again!
It's been some time but here I am with new tracks

Lately I've been listening to Atmosphere and Murs a LOT. They're both from the label Rhymesayers. They got lots of other great artists too, such as MF DOOM, Brother Ali and Eyedea (who sadly passed away, R.I.P.)

Murs and Slug 
Atmosphere has some great tracks, I especially like how he makes you think the song is about one thing and then at the end he says something to twist it all around. Listen to the story he tells you, genius to say the least!
Atmosphere - Yesterday
Atmosphere - The Waitress

Murs is another MC from Rhymesayers. He also isn't very well known even tough he's a great rapper.
Murs and Slug - Woman Tonight
Slug is Atmosphere's MC
Murs - I Know (What Do You Know) 

Another exceptionally good rapper is One Be Lo from Binary Star. I've talked a bit about Binary Star before consisting of MC's One Be Lo and Senim Silla and Producer Decompoze. These tracks are solo's by One Be Lo
One Be Lo - HisStory 
Now check it, I ain't teaching y'all to hate white,
Cause thinking one color's better than another, that ain't right
One Be Lo - E.T. 
One Be Lo - Decepticons 

Keep the real Hip-Hop alive and support the real MC's!
