June 06 Hip-Hop Recommendations

Recommended Posts

You need to add WeFunk to your list of radio shows. It's better than all the three you have there.

Seconded, I found it as it's one of the stations listed in Winamp by default.

I'm pretty out of touch with current Hip-hop again now, anyone know anything about this Lupe Fiasco guy? I just saw the vid for Kick Push on MTV Base this morning, really stood out and quite a nice song to boot.

Lupe Fiasco has a few mixtapes floating about, links below. His album leaked a month or so ago, resulting in the official release getting pushed back from its original June launch date.

New Jurassic 5 album out soon. You know Isaacs will love it.

Hip-hop outfit Jurassic 5 will release its first album in four years, "Feedback," July 25 via Interscope. The set is led by the single "Work It Out," which features the Dave Matthews Band, while "Where We At" boasts a guest turn by Mos Def.

Production was supplied primarily by DJ/producer Nu-Mark on tracks like "Red Hot" and "Future Sound," although Scott Storch contributed "Brown Girl" and Salaam Remi was behind the boards for "Get It Together" and "Radio."

The album is the follow-up to 2002's "Power in Numbers," which debuted at No. 13 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and has sold 379,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Jurassic 5 will spend all summer on the road in support of the project, beginning July 18 in Seattle.

One artist who won't be heard on "Feedback" is Cut Chemist, who exited Jurassic 5 in 2004 to devote time to his solo debut, "The Audience's Listening," which arrives July 11 via Warner Bros.

"I think this one is going to earn them some attention from the label," Cut Chemist tells Billboard.com of "Feedback." "It's a hard label to get noticed on, because there are so many big [rap] acts -- the biggest."

As for the possibility of working with J5 again in the future, Cut Chemist says, "I guess once we live out this next phase, which is their record and my record, we'll see where everything is at. I think there's a good possibility. I still to this day have never worked with anybody as fitting as J5, to my whole love for hip-hop. We never had to sit there and contrive anything. It's magic. With rappers, I've never had that kind of synergy ever before or since."

When they replace Cut Chemist beats for Scott Storch I guess you can expect a different sort of sound on at least one track. Could be good. Could be disastrous.

From the store section.

In late '05 Truth and Soul's El Micheal Affair forged an unusual working relationship with the incomparable Raekwon of the Wu Tang Clan. Together they reworked Wu Tang classics, bridging the musical gap between sampled hip hop and live instrumental soul. In the wake of this event, Truth and Soul's Shaolin Series was born. Side A is a cover of one of the most influential of the Wu Tang's arsenal. Side B is a cover of "Glaciers of Ice" from Raekwon's classic solo LP "Only built For Cuban Linx". This record is volume 1 of Truth and Soul's new Shaolin Series.

El Micheals Affair - C.R.E.A.M.

Glaciers of Ice

You don't want to sleep on these.

First impressions on the new DJ Shadow album:

Like we promised, here's a little advance notice on some joints we heard yesterday from DJ Shadow's The Outsider. We had already heard "3 Freaks" and the David Banner-led "Seeing Thangs", and asked to hear any other tracks featuring MCs. Our quick lowdown after the jump.

That's My Part

A slap - no, scratch that, a BLAP - featuring E-40. Really phenomenal track, perhaps the first time that DJ Shadow has been called "pimp" on record. Or ever. This one almost sounds like hyphy prog, with constant, subtle changes to the beat and minor-key keyboard lines throughout. The use of the Super Mario coin noise ("BLLLLINNNG!") as a percussion element was a nice touch.

:wacko:

Turf Dancing

"Scrapin through Davis!" The clubbiest track from Shadow yet, with a dance call-out section ("NOW AIRWALK!") and quotables from the Federation ("She ghostridin my dick!")

ghostridin! lol

Keep Em Close

Nump (of "I Got Grapes" fame) surprises with a particularly dark verse on this creeper in 3/4 time.

Enuff

Unexpectedly, the most un-DJ Shadow moment doesn't come from Yay Area gangster rappers, but Q-Tip and Lateef, who team up over wildly upbeat guitar strums and a pop chorus. (This is the point where we whisper to our neighbor, "Nerds are going to be soooooo mad.")

Intriguing shnit.
