Brand new Cypress Hill for the new year. It sounds a little different, more mainstream sounding, than previous Cypress tunes. However, it still contains that ruggedness the Hill is always bring to the table.

Gin Joints and Young Ivy - The Conjugal Visit

Sweden’s Gin Joints and Young Ivy combine to deliver one of the best little known albums of 2009.

Recorded over three weeks in LuleƄ,Sweden while Young Ivy was on holiday from attending Dartmouth College. The album is quite impressive for two guys from Sweden.

The Conjugal Visit features that quality Boom Bap mixed with Soul music so many Hip Hop fans around world love. It’s so refreshing to hear people outside of the US bringing good music to the masses.

E Reece and Inka One - Art & Commerce

Maryland's E Reece just can't make wack music.Who can match his consistency? Other than Minnesota's Brother Ali I can't think anybody else. E Reece brings that much needed quality lyricism and musicality so lacking in Hip Hop landscape today. E Reece = good music.period!

If after listening E Reece he doesn't become your new favorite emcee something is seriously wrong with your ears.

Pack FM - Happy Days

Great idea or corniness exemplified? I can't decide but internet darlings Pack FM drops a new tune upon us for the new year. Produced by Tonedeff the song touches upon the changes within hip hop landscape. Whether Pack FM is the right group and has the right credentials to speak upon this topic is another matter. Nonetheless the song "Happy Days" has a somewhat charming quality to it.
