Musical March Madness

There's been some crazy shit going on this month. Between the mass amounts of book learning and  never ending basketball, I have unfortunately missed blogging some dope tracks. One song that has been an Itunes go to for the last little while is OCD: Moosh and Twist's "Black Forest Gummy Worms".  I'm 100% addicted to the Nina Simone sample and the philly boys don't disappoint on the lyrical end. Their mix-tape "Up Before The World" came out a couple of weeks ago and I've heard nothing but good things.

As J.Cole continues to gain popularity, he has started to use his passionate beats and rhymes to get people excited for a potential album from the Jay-Z prodigy. Cole has the unbelievable ability to force listeners to lose themselves in the lyrical story he is trying to tell.  "The Good Son Pt. 1" is just a short snippet, but I'm hopeful that we will get the full track soon enough (hopefully with 14-16 tracks accompanying it).

At one point I had a lot of faith that the Cali duo U-N-I were gonna make major moves in hip-hop. Although I haven't heard much since their unreal release of "Land of the Kings", I was pleasantly surprised to hear Yonas Michael go at it on his own. With only one rapper on the track I feel like Yonas is is able to strut  his individual creativity on "Blinded". Adding to the overall vibe of the track Yonas is joined by singer Little Dragon whose got a unique style/sound, and one of the craziests videos i've seen in a while for her track "Twice".
