[Hip-Hop] Talib Kweli – Attack The Block (Mixtape)

Talib Kweli is one of the lyrical masters of the game, so when he puts out free music, it’s a good idea to pay attention. Attack The Block may serve as a teaser to his upcoming album, Prisoner of Conscious, but it’s definitely a standout project all on its own. The 18-track project features verses from an eclectic group of artists including Black Thought, Lil Wayne, Mac Miller, Ryan Leslie, Ab-Soul, Das Racist, and even more. It’s this diverse selection of artists that really makes the mixtape distinctive from Kweli’s previous ventures.

[Hip-Hop] Busdriver – Firehydrant (ft. Das Racist)

LA underground favorite, Busdriver, is best known for his unique style and absurdly fast and intelligent raps. On his most recent track, he teams up with Das Racist to create a strangely captivating display of quick-witted, unconventional lyricism. The production on “Firehydrant” toes the line between postmodern and obnoxious combining a plethora of unlikely sounds. However, the weirdness of all three emcees manages to emerge triumphant and, upon a few repeats, you will more than likely find the instrumental growing on you. Make sure to listen closely, as you’ll find a surprising amount of valuable content between the lines. Stream and download this original track below and look out for Busdriver’s upcoming Free EP, Arguments With Dreams, out next month.
