Busta Rhymes is gearing up to release his next album ‘E.L.E.2′ next year while Q-Tip is set to release ‘The Last Zulu’ project in 2014 as well.

Listen, download, & check the tracklisting below…..

Pay attention when a mixmaster is schooling you. Greg Nice would co-sign when we tell you, ‘This is how we take the old to the new’ (the new to the old, the old to the new).

Go to the link below now and get this labor of love. If you don’t get yours, that’s on YOU!

Proper party energy in a mix conveyed by a mixmaster. Respect to DJ SARASA for providing the blend of music made to rock Japan (rolling with Blu & Exile on their 2013 Tour). A mix that’ll rock a crowd stateside (USA), too… more than ‘something to dance to’… you can groove to this – be you a dancer or desk jockey, at work or in the ride, at the house or (of course) at the show. Plus: NO WACK TRACKS. Plus… You can get this for exactly FREE.99 (so help yourself to FREE downloads until the Soundcloud hits its limit)!

Game and Nipsey Hussle… powerful combination. No doubt it makes for a dope mixtape as well. Listen to “Red And Blue Make Green” for yourself for FREE! This project is a compilation of collaborations. Hip-Hop bangers by the West Coast bangers.
Redman is back with with the fire (innuendo intended)… New music from Brick City’s own with video for “Pump Ya Brakes” off his forthcoming “Muddy Waters 2″ (due out soon). Before that, Red is supposed to drop a “Muddy Waters 2: The Preload” (EP). But before all that (and after the jump)… there’s a “Remixxes” EP that the Funk Doc dropped for the FREE.99 download just a while ago.
BamaLoveSoul and DJ Rahdu doing the love… keeping the flame of hope alive with this “Follow Me” flip mix while we wait on the next D’Angelo work of art. Now, this is just the 11-minute sampler. They have a full mix on the way. They cannot “can’t imagine him releasing a bomb” – which is a sentiment many share. This is how you hold your fav artist down while they are out of the spotlight.
“Enjoy Follow Me, our tribute to the fans that have been inspired by and hopefully inspire D’angelo and encourage him to release the next album we’ll be enjoying even 18 years later.”
Went a little out of the Hip-Hop genre to shine the spotlight on some good R&B for the last Beatz & Lyrics Show. Hope you were listening and checking your Instagrams. You can still do that and catch the show archives; but ain’t nothing like the real thing baby! And this baby… this baby right here ninja… Whew! Words cannot describe the loveliness that is Cressida. So watch the video. High ‘honey’ factor; but note that the music shows she can deliver the goods on that front, too. Here’s “We Living Life.” Follow @LoveCressida too. Shout to Khalid Salaam for hitting us with the link after the show.
