Mello Music Group & Jamall Bufford are releasing the instrumentals from last years Victim Of A Modern Age. The first 1000 downloads are free, so don’t sleep. With production from 14KT, Zo!, Doc Illinsworth, Slot-A, Evilldewer and of course Jamall, this is a must have for hip-hop heads and beat heads alike. DO NOT miss this chance to get the instrumental release of this critically acclaimed album. Impress your friends by spitting hot fire on these tracks and make them think you’re better than you actually are, because the beats are just that good.
You would be hard pressed to find a hip-hop group that started with more of a bang than Little Brother did. Since then Phonte has done nothing short of snatch the opportunity he was given and run with it. He linked with Nicolay and started Foreign Exchange, he dropped guest verses on some classic tracks, he created some great music with Zo!, and in 2011 we finally got a solo project from him with Charity Starts At Home. We were not disappointed, Phonte delivered as we have come to expect him to. “Dance In The Reign” was produced by Pac Div mastermind Swift D and features frequent collaborator Sy Smith on the vocals. The album featured notable production from Stro Elliot, 9th Wonder, and Khrysis along side excellent rappings from Evidence, Big K.R.I.T., Pharoahe Monch, and Elzhi. We hope that one day we get another Little Brother LP, but we know it’s a bleak pipe dream at best. We are in good hands though since Phonte says grinding and Rapper Big Pooh recently signed to Mello Music Group. A group project is probably out of the picture but at least the guys are still working.
Man Made from Detroit musician Zo! is a must own for anyone who believes music is dead or enjoys some smooth soulful music. One of the stand out tracks on the album gets a video treatment and features Phontigallo and Eric Roberson and crew steppin’ to the grrooooooooooovvvveee. This on the heels of Phonte and Eric announcing they’ll be working on a collaborative album, that will be a must have no matter when it drops, although they said it’ll be in 2015……Go ahead fellas, I can wait….
Jamall Bufford known as Buff1 previously released his album Victim Of A Modern Age last week on Mello Music Group. Here the Zo! and 14kt produced track “Nineteen” gets the video treatment. “Nineteen” shows the growth in maturity that Jamall went through on this album. The album has people rethinking their year end lists, which they’ve had completed for a few weeks now. Well done.
Sometimes you miss something that comes out. Sometimes you just need to go back and listen to music again. If you aren’t up on Zo! or his …Just Visiting series, then you should do some digging. The extended Foreign Exchange family member knocks out his covers, with help from Anthony David, Eric Roberson, Phonte, Sy Smith and more. Check out their version of Steely Dan’s “Black Cow” below “Uptown baby, Uptown baby” and you can grab the album by clicking below.

Most people when they cover songs from the 80’s such as “Human” by Human League, they are poking fun of sorts at them….But not Zo! and the infamous Tigallo, you can tell they are genuine fans of the music they covered on this project. This is my favorite track they from Zo! & Tagallo Love The 80’s as a bonus below is the official video for Human League’s classic 80’s track “Human”
