IT’S OUT!!!

Go get you some.

Here goes the bonus 45 with the album.

GUILTY SIMPSON & MADLIB (a.k.a. O.J. SIMPSON) – FRIENDS ONLY

New school galore hey?  First Theophilus, then Curren$y and now, the highly touted Mr. Cole.

I don’t know about J. Cole yet.  Like unquestionably, this guy can rap, I won’t deny that.  But already, this early on in his career, I find myself glazing over when I hear him rap.  His content along with cats like Big Sean, XV, Drake so on and so forth all make me hate the youth of today and just makes me go throw the Ecstatic back in rotation just to cleanse my mind.

Anyway, here goes his first official single.  Thoughts?

J. COLE – WHO DAT?

Now before I start getting hate for not supporting the new school, I’m still an enormous fan of Blu, I’m diggin on the homie below and there’s of course Curren$y.

I can’t quite put my finger on it yet, but this guy is dope.  The way he carries himself, his delivery, his writing, if he continues down this path he could totally end up being in a class alongside Mos, Kweli, Common, etc.  Hell, he’s already in a group with Mos and Jay Electronica (remember Center Edge Territory?…when the hell is that shit coming out!!)

Anyway, some new dopeness from Spitta produced by BluRoc (a.k.a. Ski Beatz). Get live.

CURREN$Y – ROLE MODEL

I gotta be honest, of this new school of rappers, Wale, Cool Kids, Pac Div, etc., etc. I’m really not feeling any of’em.  I’m not saying they’re bad, but none of them inspire me to listen past the first track of anything and don’t take that as me not trying either.  Trust me, I have.  I’ve listened through a ton of their stuff, and still……nothin.

But with Theophilus London, I get drawn in.  No not all his songs are dope but at least he gives me something different to work with.  Inspired production.  Interesting cadences.  Melodies and vamps.  Odd changes.  This guy is serious.  I support this man and I believe you all should too.

Off his upcoming record, check it out:
