For those who have ever stated that Southern emcee's can't rap, you might just have your feelings demolished, gift-wrapped, and then handed back to you thanks to Big Sant's newest cut, "Rap Ni**a."See more...

The video for Phonte's "The Life Of Kings" is already pretty dope, but if you really want to have some fun with this one may I suggest a drinking game that revolves around the number of times Phonte caresses his hair? Oh, and Phonte's mom rapping along to Evidence's verse for the video was pure genius. I highly suggest that more rappers do this. See more...See more...

Now this right here is a solid track. Not that I expected anything less from The Roots or anything like that, but "One Time" is one of those songs you know is a gem only a matter of seconds into hearing it. For "One Time" The Roots enlisted the help of both Phonte and Dice Raw who both prove to to be a very welcomed addition to the song. Listen and download...

The good folks over at The Smoking Section dropped a dope article all about why Drake won't let Phonte on a track, even though he's gone on record saying Phonte's one of his heroes - you should definitely check it out. But what really caught me eye in that article was a sidenote reference to Little Brother's old school video for "Speed". See more...See more...

I love tracks like this because they enable me to be really, really lazy. Former Little Brother member Phonte just dropped a new cut, prod. by also-former Little Brother member 9th Wonder, that also features Dilated Peoples member Evidence and Who Needs a Group When Your This Dope member Big K.R.I.T. Do I really need to say that "The Life of Kings" is dope?See more...

This was a very long-winded way of saying that 9th Wonder's delivered a legit bedroom burner in the form of new release "One Night". No, it's not about getting a woman wetter than a rainforest, but as we previously discussed, that shit's actually kind of gross when you think about it. Instead we get grown man horns from Terrece Martin, a well crafted verse from Phonte. Listen and download...See more...

9th Wonder, he of the Jay-Z production and Jamla leadership and ridiculously dope "Corner" remixes, is preparing to embark on a solo album, "The Wonder Years", but before he does he needs to get the crew together for a little "Band Practice". Listen and download....

With 9th Wonder providing the production on Phonte's "Not Here Anymore" it's like we've been transported back to the good ol' days of music with this track. The song, which also features an impressive guest verse from Detroit emcee Elzhi, will be featured on Phonte's upcoming project titled "Charity Starts At Home." Listen and download...See more...

Although Trackademicks' "Chill" features rappers Freddie Gibbs and Phonte I'm getting a very strong, but welcomed early 90's R&B vibe from the song. And on a side note that'll probably be the last time you'll ever see the words "Freddie Gibbs" and "early 90's R&B" in the same sentence together. Taking its cue from Jodeci's "Let's Chill" Trackademicks' "Chill" manages to be just that, one hell of a chill song. Listen and download...See more...

Trackademicks, Phonte, and Carlitta Durand have provided us with a fun sultry tune for summer courtesy of their latest release "Halfway." "Halfway" is one of those laidback summer songs you can just picture yourself listening to while kicking back at the beach drinking a Corona or something. It's just really reminiscent of good times.
