HHHTake it to the track,

After an incredible week of reminiscing, honoring and supporting, I thought it’d be nice to take a breather from the emotional onslaught and just, sit back and listen to good rappers rapping.  You’re cool with that right?

GOLDEN STATE

Ahmad Jones definitely doesn’t get his props.

The Fourth Avenue Jones frontman is seriously, seriously ill.  Cadences, content, a live show that’s known world round as being absolutely captivating and on top of all that, apparently he’s one of the nicest guys in the biz.  However with all these positives going for him, after 5 consecutive years of dropping records with 4th Avenue Jones, in 2005 he disappeared from the scene and with the exception of a handful of collaborations, seemed to stop making music.  Well, it’s 2010 and it’s looking like Ahmad’s finally releasing a follow up to his 1993 solo debut, Ahmad, and we couldn’t be happier.

Here with a tribute to his home state of California, I give you some new Ahmad!

AHMAD – GOLDEN STATE

SHO’ NUFF

So the last time I posted some of that new Freeway & Jake One ish, I had implied that I was off Freeway and it was just that song that caught my attention.

Well…I lied and this album sounds like FIRE!  Jake One is pumping out bangers left, right and center, and as for Freewizzy, let’s just say I’ma start checkin for ol’ boy again.  Off the upcoming Stimulus Package:

FREEWAY & JAKE ONE Feat. BUN B – SHO’ NUFF

MAN AT ARMS

Not much to say other than I’m liking this dude more and more.

Some new new from the Okayplayer:

TRUCK NORTH – MAN AT ARMS

Enjoy it folk.

Be well.

HHHT.O. to TaiPAID,

Like the CAPtain had previously reported, inspiration has been a rarity these past few months.  And well, it’s tough to keep the string of goodies comin when the pickings’ve been so slim. Y’know, sure there’ve been good tunes here and there, but nothing that made me lose my poop like that Kurupt/Quik tune.  That was definitely poop worthy.

Some of my favorite groups of the past few years have either disappeared or dropped sub-par efforts **cough cough** Foreign Exchange **cough cough** and people who I generally would be excited to hear have taken the whole ‘mixtape – let’s jump on every feature known to man like Weezy’ concept and oversaturated themselves to the point where I don’t really feel to support them financially the way I once would (I’m lookin at you Busta and Raekwon).  With that being said, had it not been for the oversaturation of some of these guys, I probably would’ve posted only a half of what I have.  So I guess I owe them a….thanks??

Anyway….I found some things that are cool and perhaps you will too.

Miike Snow.

3 guys, not 1.  That’s pretty much all I know about them.  They’ve done their Daft Punk best to stay anonymous and have done a pretty decent job thus far.  All I’ve been able to gather is they  produce some pretty sophisticated pop and the lead singer sounds a touch like Peter Gabriel (listen to how he bends his words) and that automatically earns them awesome points in my book.

Cool tune with a pretty badass remix.  Check it.

Miike Snow – Animal (Punks Jump Up Remix)

Truck North

I first heard of this dude when he showed up on the first (and only) Okayplayer compilation: True Notes some years back and thought, this guys alright.  Since then, he’s shown up on pretty much every Roots album and has consistently improved and grown as an emcee and a writer.   Well, I guess Truck’s now prepping for a big ol’ solo cause his name’s startin to make the blog rounds.

Get your hustle on homie.  I’m definitely a fan of this tune.

Truck North – Never Ending Flip

Finally, as a response to the homie’s post yesterday, this goes out to CAP, 2Hands and the entire PPF fam….a tune that was off the NBA 2K6 soundtrack (which was an incredible soundtrack btw but barely got any love).

Some of the Best from the West.  More Hiero ish.

Dan the Automator Feat. Casual, Del the Funky Homosapien and A-Plus – Don’t Hate the Player.

That’s that new ish folk.  The 1-2 punch is back.

Keep your guard up.

HHHTerminators,

Generally on Sundays, the crew and I give you the option of Heaven or Hell (or neither, depending on the preceding night).  And well, normally I’m cool with those guidelines…however, where I’m at, we’re gettin Monday off so Sunday will continue BANGIN (more on that in a minute) so I’m leanin towards the hellish side of this post.  Nonetheless, I can’t be insensitive to my overseas counterparts who are currently dealing with a serious dose of Adventure from the Grandmaster himself.

So, here we go….somethin for column A and somethin for column B.

Heaven: For those that need to just chill the eff out with some cool ish.


As many of you know, Pete Rock and Ma Dukes have gotten together to release Dilla‘s first official (I don’t count the Illa J ish) Posthumous record.  With enough in his vault to battle 2Pac, I really hope that this isn’t the beginning of a long watering down process.  Already on the record, titled JAY STAY PAID, there are features that I’m just not comfortable with (Havoc of Mobb Deep?!?  I say NO DICE good sir.), but that being said, there are some features on here that just look amazing (Blu, Lil Fame, Black Thought).  So with that, I give you a preview of the record courtesy the World Famous Beat Junkies & Okayplayer.

Beat Junkies & J Dilla – Jay Stay Paid Album Sampler

And as a little bonus, here’s some newer ish from J Dilla’s fam and Aftermath’s newest songstress.

Slum Village – Cloud 9 (Feat. Marsha Ambrosius)

HELL: For those who feel like using Red matter tonight.

As we’ve been reporting for awhile, Freebass 808 is the ridiculous union of producer Apple Juice kid and Camp Lo’s Geechi Suede.  They’re dope.  Now, with what they’re calling an ‘Interactive Player’, these boys along with Tishaun Dawson of Battalion Armour are here to take things one step further.   5 New Freebass 808 tunes accompanied by full conceptual visuals…this is the future and I’m excited.

WATCH/LISTEN TO IT HERE

And as an added bonus, like I said in the last post, Kurupt‘s a beast.  And if you know me, you know I love myself some DJ Quik.  So to put the 2 together…..well, gosh darn if it isn’t just OBSCENE!

The first single off the upcoming BLAKQOUT album.  Some of the most inventive song structuring ever…not to mention the cadences….oh LORD!

For the homies in T.O. — It’s tonight.  Invite only.  PPF gettin their VIP on.   Let’s get it.

Be well world. Check Waakao for your daily dose of Waa’s Hap’nin.
