I post this up for the T.I. and Trick Daddy verses only. Nothing against Memph, but he can’t really ride this dirty south Just Blaze track properly.
Here is some great footage of Marvin performing “What’s Going On?” live in 1972. Nothing short of brilliant. I am not sure what this footage is from, that does not matter though. What does matter is that it is right here right now.
This is very weird for me to say, but I really dig this new Atmosphere track. Nothing personal, just have never been a fan of their music. I think Slug can definitely spit and Ant’s production is top notch. Music just never touched me, also, I grew up in Colorado where these guys were treated like royalty. So, I steered clear. The bounce on this new track is infectious. I may give a new album a listen when/if it drops.
Boot Camp Click legends Steele and Tek aka Smif-N-Wessun are back at it with their version of Billy Paul’s”Let The Dollars Circulate”. There is not much that needs to be said about this. Enjoy.
It’s Episode 54 of Comprehensive Beatdown with Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G!
The guys are back this week with one of their most anticipated albums of the year, “Take Me to the Alley” by Gregory Porter. This is Porter’s 4th solo album and his follow-up to the Grammy winning (best jazz vocal performance) “Liquid Spirit.” Silent G talks about his experience seeing Gregory Porter at Jazz Fest in New Orleans last weekend in the Jazz Tent as a severe thunderstorm wreaked havoc on the festival grounds, causing the cancellation of the remainder of the day’s shows, including a two-hour Stevie Wonder performance.
The intro music comes from the new Lack of Afro Album, “Hello Baby.”
If you want to keep up with an inordinate amount of new music, follow Silent G’s 2016 Albums/EPs playlist on Spotify.
I like this dude.
What does one get when you mix emcee Pyinfamous and producer 9th Wonder? 10th Wonder, that’s what. Check out 10 tracks of bars upon bars spit over some soulful production as Mississippi meets North Carolina in the most brilliant way.
