(Philly) Freeway is best known for having the second best guest verse on the best single off the worst Jay-Z album like ten years ago. This album tries to strike a balance between the Minneapolis Rhymesayers Brother Ali sound and NY street grind and mostly fails, largely due to lethargic rhymes and indifferent beats. Other people might like this. By the way, when’s the Memphis Bleek album coming out?
7 has the most hooks and the most on-vacation Raekwon verse you ever wanted to hear.
BUT, if you really like hip-hop, I know you’re going to come out to see the LEGENDARY Sadat X on Friday the 19th. Rah KWUR Week!
Gently straddling the border between electronic and wave stands this English band. As usual, the vocals are shared between the higher-pitched Alexis Taylor and the more mellow voiced Joe Goddard and, as always, the songs benefit from the dichotomy.
So a few posts ago, we gave you a review of the new Owen Pallet album Heartland. Here is an in-studio (live) performance of “Lewis Takes Off His Shirt” (aka the best song on the album) from CBC’s Studio Q (thanks to P4k).
