    Had this song set on my computer as my alarm clock…. so good to wake up to:

  2. Yeah, I dig that song. Real tight

  3. Uncle Jesse Consopolis says:

    I know you’ve already featured one of theirs, but these guys almost always have awesome samples

    • mike says:

      Just listening to lyrics from the Blue Blooded. Love this line:

      “Stand on stage, acceptin a grammy
      Most incredible (w)rapping since edible panties”

    • DH says:

      I know, it may be a bit too commercial, but the sample cant be beat, and its off of the mixtape so its kinda underground.

  4. Busdriver Stu says:

    Maybe they’re commercial, but both of them have got me poppin’, the second is a lot more dancy, but the first one just elevates my soul

  5. DH says:

    Hot off of the new album, “How I Got Over”

  6. Terry Crews says:

    the first like 25 seconds are some fast rapping. the rest is just smooth jazzy and makes me want to take my lady on a magical sailboat

  7. Haha, how did you ever stumble on that?

  8. JoeA says:

    Um this one is not nearly as good as the other two but I know all the words so I guess that counts as catchy

  9. JoeA says:

    Fifa 10? Oh well

  10. DH says:

    This is the second track off his new album, the song is better if you listen to the first track right before hand.

  11. mike says:

    Best lyric of the song “I’m the arrow, you’re my bow. Shoot me forth and I will go.”

    it popped up on my playlist and I had to share it

  12. DH says:

    Enough said.

  13. DH says:

    British Underground. Boom.

  14. mike says:

    2:10 to 2:22

    Chris Young the Rapper is dope. Look into more songs by him.

  16. stimmybob says:

    thought i’d start off the new year with my first song suggestion. stumbled upon it on youtube, digging the beatles sample

  17. m says:

    I’m not sure if you’ll like this song, but thought I would share

  18. m says:

    oops, sorry. here’s the song

  19. mike says:

    not sure if you’d consider this hip-hop, but I thought I’d let you be the judge. I guess it’s Dub? It’s pretty unique and the guy can put together some cool songs on the spot:

  20. Mike says:

    Had my playlist on random and found this song. Inspired by a murder that occurred at an Atmosphere concert in New Mexico, I like this song 1) for it’s simplicity and soulful sample and 2) because it’s a window into a person’s struggle to understand the random and shitty things that can happen in the world

  21. MB says:

    I know at first glace you might be hesitant to put this one up. But listen to the hook and the gravelly voice. I can’t help it, it’s just catchy

  22. MK says:

    found a few jems on your blog! .. heres a song i discovered in tofino a year ago … good laid back vibe 🙂

  23. this one came up on my playlist the other day. I’m not a huge fan of the song, but it’s a neat concept to make the lyrics of a song follow the alphabet. I was also listening to Abdominal – Breath Later and had a question for you, he talks about rapping 8 or 16 bars without breathing, what exactly is a bar? Is there a certain length, a certain number of beats? Maybe you can elaborate on this at some point. Another suggestion might be to add a definitions section of the website (maybe it’s too nerdy, but thinking of that song where the dude raps about cooking up beats could be better understood if we had a glossary).

    • I think the typical bar has 4 beats in it. So if you are tapping your foot along to a song, 4 taps would be one bar. Now, that is just me trying to remember my saxophone-middle-school days but I’m pretty sure that is right. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.

      As for the definition section, I would like to do that but I too am not the greatest at the lingo. Like for that Abdominal song where he is cooking beats, I could probably maybe define only half of what he is talking about. The other half I probably have an idea of what he is talking about but you know, there is a good chance it is wrong. I’m a backpacker, what can I say.

    yeah its from 2001, but i think its catchy and dance worthy for sure.
