…thank you for The Roots. Don’t you love these guys? I’ve seen The Roots perform several times and each and every time their live show has been phenomenal. If Black Thought is not in your Top 5 MC’s of all time, then you need to re-acquaint yourself with the entire Roots catalogue and check the evidence.
They have a new album coming out this summer and hopefully a North American tour in the works soon (If they can get time off LNJF)
Here’s the first single Dear God 2.0 Click for download.
Pray for Jamaica
Peace fam, quick hit coming at ya. Im about to take in this new Reflection Eternal LP which dropped today. I got a hold of a new track this weekend. This one is called ‘Ends’ featuring Bilal. Click here for download.
The Megatron Don Just Blaze is finishing his European ‘SoundClash’ Tour with The Alchemist. I’ve seen some footage and its a dope show. Blaze and the Chemist going back and forth, beat for beat. JB is playing Fortune Sound in Vancouver this weekend. Should be quite a dope show.
Here’s some vid of Justin speaking about Blogs and Labels.
Here Just Blaze speaks about the death of the Remix.
Thats all for now.
Drake’s New Video for ‘Find Your Love, Filmed in Yard (Jamaica).
New Busta too
Im a big fan of that third word.
The Cee-lo track right below this post has been on repeat for a minute. (Shouts to Wan Luv). The Jay Electronica from earlier this week, spent a lot of time on repeat.(Except for the Diddy rants). Bruno Mars has been getting some heavy rotation from radio for the infectious hook on the B.O.B. track ‘Nothin on you’.
Well seems he’s working on a solo EP to keep the momentum going. The EP should be available next week. Here’s the first leak. Its called ‘The Otherside’ featuring Cee-Lo and B.O.B.

6 steps to perfection.
Jigga Man + Betty White + SNL = A bunch of people staying in Saturday night.
Don’t know why I used that title, I just like the sound of the word combination I guess. Anyways, on to things that are good. I talk about Drake alot on this blog. Why? Because Canadians have often been criticized for not supporting home grown talent.
We’ve seen talented artists like Kardinal, Saukrates and others hit a certain level of success, but never truly breaking through and making the impact that Drake is making.
In my opinion Drake has all the pieces in place to run and compete with the big boys and I believe what he’s doing is bringing light to a city that has always had great musical talent. The evidence of that will reveal itself this summer. Anyways here’s a little feature that CNN did about this upcoming Canadian talent that is Drake.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Then I came across this little ditty from Cee Lo Green. Seems the theme of ‘wanting you’ means this might be the summer of love all over again. I love music that sounds like summer. Once a download link is available for this one. I’ll have it up.
I want you to want me too.
Jay Elect talking bout his favorite players. I support his answers wholeheartedly. The only way it could’ve been better is if he said John Starks (a.k.a. The Greatest EVER!)
This video is whatever. The jam is dope though.
