Kno: Graveyard ft. Sheisty Khrist

From Kno of CunninLynguists' solo debut album "Death Is Silent". I'm not really sold on this one... too much punchline rappin' in my opinion.

Nipsey Hu$$le: Keys to the City

Second single off Hu$$le's debut album, South Central State of Mind, due out December 21st.

Curren$y: Talking Fly ep.3

Curren$y talks about work in the "sandbox". "I can think now".

Wiz Khalifa: Real Estate

Another new track from the Taylor Gang rapper. Hopefully he sticks to tracks like this and not attempting to freestyle on radio shows... even though I give him credit for spitting off top and not coming with premeditated material.

QuEST: Samba Thelonious Theory

"The Greedy Anorexics art collective take a moment to showcase the slick rhyming style of American rapper QuEST and his track "Samba Thelonious Theory" from the up and Coming Project THE REASON: A DEFENSE MECHANISM.
We chose this song because we relate to creative wordplay melodic sounding and wanted to share what good music can help a team create.
We cranked up the volume, kicked back and fell in love with the song instantly; the beat took us back so the video features vintage visuals almost like a video from the late 80's early 90's and some psychedelic graffiti painted by The Greedy Anorexics very own Sir Mone, Dfine, Kojey Radical, Kelz, Chris, Astro, Scooch one, Shucks One "The Idiot" and Tizer."

Jay Rock: Diary Of A Broke N*gga ft. Kendrick Lamar & Giddy

Guess when Jay Rock’s mixtape titled Black Friday drops?

Flying Lotus: GNG BNG (rmx) ft. Blu

Directed by Ruff Mercy and produced by Flying Lotus. I heard it through the grapevine that this joint is gonna be apart of Blu's No York album. We'll see.

Fashawn: Dark Fantasy Freestyle

Normally it gets annoying when rappers all rap on the same beat but I like this choice by Fashawn. It shows how versatile he can be. Higher Learning 2 coming soon.

Jay-Z on The Howard Stern Show

Jay-Z on Howard Stern 11-15-2010 - Part 1

Hov has had some real good interviews as of late (to plug his new book Decoded). Real entertaining stuff here. Hit the jump for the rest of the interview.

Who'd They Sample? Saturdays: Dom Kennedy- Locals Only

How dope is it that Dom sampled a Super Nintendo RPG game from the mid-90's?! Around the 1:43 mark is where the sample kicks in. How do these dudes find these beats to sample? Genius.

Kendrick Lamar: Look Out For Detox

K-Dot decides to spazz out following Dr. Dre's co-sign! "Tell the Government come shoot me ni***, cuz I'm goin' out with a fist raised and a fist full of money give it to the 5th grade, drink a 5th of Hennessy and then take another fade with a democratic politician from C-A, they don't wanna see a b-l-a-c-k make us some scratch like a Hall of Fame DJ, give us some free J’s, put us in the pj’s, now we in the county jail callin' for a 3 way." Got damn his flow is ill! Taking a sip of his drink mid way through the song haha.

Curren$y: Talking Fly ep.1

Curren$y talks about working with Ski Beatz. I like what he was saying about most producers and how Ski is different.

Get Fitted At The Krate

If you ever find your self strolling through the vibrant and unique downtown Santa Cruz and are in dire need of putting together a nice fit then The Krate is definitely your spot. In my case I go shoveling through all the old school caps that they get in every week. My inner child is released every time I try on one of their old school NBA snapbacks. The Krate can be described as a classy and well collected spot to get your streetwear on. Back a couple months ago when I was feening for a Stussy shirt I knew The Krate would be able to feed my addiction for classic brands. Other brands that they carry consist of (but not limited to) HUF, 10 Deep, Rebel 8, Manifest, Upper Playground, Crooks & Castles and Staple Design. They also got a nice selection of vintage Starter jackets that I'm totally diggin'. Another great perk of the store is that both the owners are laid back and always willing to strike up a convo. They also have art exhibits held in the store from time to time which I look forward to checking out. From the old school tracks that play throughout the store while you shop, to the copious amount of boomboxes, used as decor, laden in every which way, you're bound to enjoy your experience. Be sure to check out their website thekrate.com
and make sure to hit the jump for more photos.

Way Back Wednesdays: Goodie Mob- Beautiful Skin

This soulful joint by Goodie Mob (in case you were wondering their name acts as a double backronym, GOOD DIE Mostly Over Bullshit) comes off of their 1998 album titled Still Standing. When I first heard this I couldn't help but compare it to "Mind Sex" by Dead Prez and "Brown Skin" by Black Star (both amazing songs in their own respect). Enjoy.

Naledge: Player of the Century ft. Freddie Gibbs


A Celebration of Micheal Larsen

"Last Tuesday, November 9, 2010, a capacity-filled crowd gathered at First Avenue to celebrate the life of Mikey "eyedea" Larsen. The evening spanned five hours to which many people donated their time, energy and talent. It was a dedication in its truest form and a tribute that will not be forgotten. The Fans, friends, peers and family joined together in the First Avenue main room to show their support, love and dedication to a person we all miss dearly."

Deejay Punctual: Railroad Mix

Local spin master Deejay Punctual graces us with an exclusive mix of old school, underground and instrumental tracks. Hiero, Nas, Nujabes, Slug and Mad Skillz are some of the word sayers you can expect to hear. Enjoy!

Kanye West On the Today Show

What a tool Matt Lauer is. "I want you to just look at his face." What a weird way to talk to someone. And what's the big deal about GWB's face? Like he's expressing a whole bunch of emotion with that look. Frankly I didn't see any emotion from him or his facial expressions. I totally agree with what Kanye said about not needing to be prompted by the clip. "Pre looking at his face". Haha! As far as the rest of the video you can be the judge.

Kanye West: Chain Heavy ft.Talib Kweli & Consequence

I think I've been spoiled by previous G.O.O.D. Friday joints. Just not feelin' this one. But who knows maybe you'll dig it? The cover art is dope though!

Who'd They Sample? Saturdays: Big K.R.I.T.- I Ain't Shit

I never imagined when I started doing an underground hip-hop website a few years back that I'd be posting a Lil Kim song but sure enough... This beat is smooth! This track is off Kim's 1996 album titled "Hard Core". Kim actually sampled Soul Mann & The Brothers song "Bumpy's Lament" (who Dre used for his song Xxplosive). And despite the fact that some of you may hate on Kim, she's on of the best female MC's of all-time (sorry to my 5th grade teacher who told me to never start a sentence with "and"). Never a flaw!

J. Cole: Friday Night Lights Mixtape

The highly anticipated and slighty delayed (for those who were expecting it to drop at midnight last night) J. Cole mixtape is here! I heard there were websites that literally got shut down temporarily due to the mass amounts of people flooding in for this. I'm bumping it right now. So far SO good! Download and stream the tape down below.

Zion-I: Birds Eye View

One of my favorite songs by my man Zumbi. Shouts to One Night Music.

J. Cole: In The Morning ft. Drake

Rolling Stone just released this one to the masses. Mellow & smooth! I thought Drake was doing that raspy voice because he wanted to sound like he just woke up (in the morning) but I guess it's rumored that he had a soar throat when this was recorded.

Kid Cudi: Journey of Mr. Rager

This is the documentary that is included with the deluxe edition of Man On The Moon 2: The Legend of Mr. Rager. I'm about to give the cd it's first spin...

Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y: Huey Newton

As I mentioned on last weeks RRHH Radio show, these two work so well together. I guess Wiz's recent arrest isn't gonna slow him down!

Dom Kennedy: Locals Only

Second official video off "From The Westside, With Love" shot by Brandon Dimmit and directed by Bryant Robinson, for The Topshelf Company. Damn! "They use to say nah Dom he is not no keeper, yeah them songs cool but nah he ain't got no heaters, then I went home, we ain't got one neither."

J. Cole: Friday Night Lights Trailer

Dropping Friday! For those of you who don't embrace contractions, I can not wait for this one!

Kendrick Lamar on MTV Sucker Free Sunday

My man Kendrick gettin' some shine!

Fashawn: Bart Simpson

This is the official "Bart Simpson" music video from Fashawn. The video features cameos from pro skateboarders Pierre-Luc Gagnon (PLG) as well as Danny Mayer, who produced the track. The Grizzly City 3 Mixtape is out now.

J.Cole: Purple Rain

In anticipation for Friday Night Lights dropping this Friday, J. Cole let loose of this record that will not be featured on the project.

Big K.R.I.T. - I Ain't Shit

GoodTalk vol.9: Curve Your Enthusiasm, dropping December 1st! Can't wait! Sounds like Krizzle sampled Dre's Xxplosive track for this joint.

Sunspot Jonz: Black Fantasia

"New video from Sunspot Jonz off of the Factor "13 Stories album. In this video he plays "The Beyonder" a character made famous in Marvel Comic Book's "The Secret Wars". The name "Black Fantasia" is also the name of part 2 in the "Galaxy of Dreams" album series due out soon."

Kanye West: Looking For Trouble ft. Pusha T, Big Sean, CyHi Da Prynce & J. Cole

Another 'Ye joint? Why not!?! J. Cole gets his wish to work with Kanye. Not really feelin' Big Sean on track with 'Ye. Also it's not the soulful type of beat that I've been diggin' from Kanye on his G.O.O.D. Fridays but it's free music so you can't really complain!

Who'd They Sample? Saturdays: Kanye West- Devil in a New Dress

Kanye sampled Smokey Robinson & The Miracles song "Will You Still Love Me" for his soulful joint. The sample appears @ the 2:07 mark. Still playing that Kanye cut on a regular basis.

Rail Road Hip Hop Radio

RRHH Radio is back and better than ever! Got some G.R.E.A.T. music for you guys so hopefully you enjoy.
EDIT: I noticed a small glitch in-between the first two songs but I spent way too much time on this already. Fixing it at this point is not an option. F#$* computer programs!

Kanye West: The Joy ft. Pete Rock, Jay-Z, Charlie Wilson, Curtis Mayfield & Kid Cudi

Late on posting this cuz my computer got a virus! Ironically the virus cam from a Pam Grier picture. Anyways got damn! This song is so ill! "Gave her a handshake only for my man's sake, she in her birthday suit cause of the damn cake, now there's crumbs all over the damn place, said she want me to cum all over her damn face."Haha damn 'Ye's been on lyrically. "So next time you see me on your fallopian, though the jewelry's Egytian, know the hunger's Ethiopian."
