If ya don’t know …

January 19, 2010

 Well, I am sure you do know about all three of these artists. I love them all.

K-os’ 2009 album Yes!  is so dynamic and tight, and wow. There’s a remix version of the album out as well, but I haven’t listened b/c remix albums all to often seem to be, shall we say, a let down. “Whip C.R.E.A.M.” is one of my favs off Yes! Do yourself a favor and listen to it.  

Mos Def … what’s to say that hasn’t been said?

Known greatness, no doubt. Not only is the music great on The Ecstatic, but the album cover is gorgeous (which is a weird thing to say about a hip-hop album cover!) I can’t listen to “Worker’s Comp” and “Auditorium” enough … so much more than hip-hop.

Black Milk’s latest Tronic is like this assault on you from the get go (and there’s a new album coming out this year). The music is more than your average listen – there’s soul to it, there’s electronic vibes happening. Real instruments!    Very conscious.
