Little Dragon – “Lover Chanting” (EP)

Little Dragon. Straight outta Sweden! It’s a disco-house-R&B mash EP… Not really feeling that as an NWA-type flow… which is good. Nothing like that. But good!

9th Wonder Presents: Jamla Is the Squad II (Album)

You already got a taste of the latest Jamla mixtape with Busta Rhymes “Jumpin'”… So why not bless y’all with the whole entire project stream why don’t we? Exactly, why don’t we? We will. Now.

9TH WONDER PRESENTS: JAMLA IS THE SQUAD II (MIXTAPE)

Ebloxk – “Motions”

Listen! If that lovey-dovey ‘ish is a turnoff when it comes to your Hip-Hop, please fight through the soulful chants to get to the raw spit on this track. Similarly, if there is such a thing as “too raw” to you when it comes to heartfelt Hip-Hop music; don’t worry, because there is plenty of soul on this Ebloxk jawn. Simply and truthfully said… there is something for all heads when it comes to this track.

Hit the jump and let them tell you a bit about themselves. Then go back to the music and listen again. Good stuff!
