Sh*t man. Thank goodness for Contemporary Rap music. This is the type of sh*t that keeps us going here. Big up to all the new culture participants that contribute to the community and keep it going. And nuff respect to the consistent artists that are able to, as Chuck D says in his dope new single, be themselves. So although Chuck D thanks us for allowing him to be himself over the years, the gratitude should really be coming from us. Peace to whoever flipped that wonderful sample from the Godfather movie for that new Immortal Technique and Temperamento track. It’s great to hear Technique rip it in spanish. Him and Skillionaire should do a track. And finally, Jeru gets a nice and filthy beat to spit over, courtesy of La Coka Nostra. Lots of other great new music from artists you will recognize from years past and some fresh faces you can not ignore. As always, no blends and the levels are off. But that’s the point, go out a cop this sh*t! Special thank you to everyone that sent in material. Please go out and support your favorite artists and they will support you! Participation is critical.
