Off Rubber Souls, this video knocks as does the beat, produced by 6th Sense. Sleeper album of the fall so far.
the unofficial tag-team is one of hip-hop’s quiet victories over other forms of music. while rock and jazz and r&b is often replete with dual acts like the singer and the drummer, or the keyboard player and the bassist, hip-hop tends to thrive on the power of the individual voice.
I think I just want to watch Nitty Scott in a lot of videos. I don’t care if she never rhymes again once in her life. She was great on the hook though. Shouts to the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Nati crew Tanya Morgan. They drop Rubber Souls, produced entirely by 6th Sense, like now.
Producer 88-Keys is prepping his album The Death of Adam, and after a long, long wait it is finally set to drop. I heard the first drop from the album on Kanye’s Can’t Tell Me Nothing Mixtape, entitled “Stay Up.” About 6 weeks back, 88 then dropped his very own mixtape in preparation for the album’s release, entitled Adam’s Case Files, which featured Kid Cudi, Grafh, Serius Jones, and Tanya Morgan, among others. His tracks are really soul-inspired and very different from the hip-hop we’ve heard. By making his lyrics comical and utilizing some of the best artists in hip-hop right now (Kanye, Bilal, Redman, Kid Cudi) 88 is bringing the world some quality, quality music. And, with a executive producer co-sign from Kanye, this album seems destined to be a hit.
Check out snippets from the album here, and look for the release in October.
