Erick Sermon returns to Juan Epstein. Hell, 'nuff said. They go from old school to dealing with quality for MP3s for the new school (I hope you new schoolers are listening). Sermon was one of my favorites growing up. He still doing it! And he drops some gems... shouts to @AreaFY for the helpout.

You saw the video for this earlier this week, and I figured I'd drop the track today, as the Soul of the Message event goes down TONIGHT at the 219 Gallery in Trenton. The boy Biz has been a big supporter of the local Trenton Arts scene, and will be performing at the event tonight. He flips Jay Electronica's "Dear Moleskine" instrumental into a nice theme for this event. Dude's wise beyond his years - enjoy this one.

Haven't posted some new Vixion Allure in a minute, and for that, I will blast this one right in your face. Wild mash of pulsating drums and an infectious guitar. Samik The Symphony went in on this one, and Allure ain't playing. She matched the intergalactic vibe of the beat with her lyrics. It's 4/20, so you might wanna blast off to this one.

Mister Cee goes in (as he should) for the memory of Guru, who passed away two years ago today. Today also marks my 10 year anniversary with my wifey (love you, ma) and Cipha Sounds' birthday. Peace and blessings to one and all. Blast this one for Guru one time. Via IFWT.
If you know me, you know that flicks like Think Like A Man aren’t exactly within my normal realm of film-watching, but with the likes of Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall, Meagan Good, Kevin Hart, Gary Owen, Tony Rock and more in this one, I might check this one out with wifey – she’s warmed my tastes to movies dealing with matters of the heart… as long as I can laugh every once in a while. It drops this Friday, 20th of April, but you can actually cop the soundtrack to Think Like A Man right now. You can’t escape Jennifer Hudson’s “Think Like A Man” single with Ne-Yo and Rick Ross if you mess with the radio right now, but the soundtrack has a lot of heat on it. New cuts from Keri Hilson and Kelly Rowland (who are both in the film) to classics like “That’s The Way Of The World” by Earth, Wind & Fire (who will be hitting Trenton, NJ in June) to joints from John Legend (with Ludacris), Future (no, not “Same Damn Time”!), X-Factor finalist Marcus Canty, Billy Wes and many more. In any case, this might be the grown and sexy date night movie for the weekend, and to get yourself ready for it, pop this one in on the car ride over, you feel me? Thank me later. You can preview tracks via iTunes or Amazon, and check out the full tracklist after the jump.
I'm not sure if you guys fuck with DnB like I do, or remember guys like Lemon D, who are truly one of the architects of the modern sound (alongside his Valve Music bredren Dillinja). He took a few years off to go into an entirely different direction, which resulted in him shedding his "Lemon D" moniker for a new name, K-AZE (which derives from the initials of his government name). He uploaded a 30 minute sampler of tracks that he has on the horizon, and he dips into everything from dubstep and R&B to that Flying Lotus/DIBIA$E lane (truth be told, the entire Valve sound is moving into multiple directions, with House, dubstep and more genres getting released). And the shit's definitely dope - I'm vibing to this right now! Check out more details via DOA, and keep it locked for more from K-AZE.

The release of Payback is a long time coming. Hell, me hearing the album in it's entirety has been a long time coming (and I'm STILL waiting). Getting co-signs from guys like Jay-Z and ?uestlove seem to have been a long time coming for Danny! as well. Riding over some live-sounding drums and dope organs (which always feel like fire to me), Danny Swain speak on all of this. This cut is said to be from the Japanese import version of Payback. I just wanna hear the American version.
