Does it feel great to hear the Native Tongues back together? Hell yeah it does!
Black Sheep's "Birds Of A Feather", from new LP The Black Pool Of Genius (June 29), features Dave (Trugoy) of De La Soul, Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest, and Mike Gee of The Jungle Brothers. It's too bad Monie Love couldn't spit a verse on this great Fiona Apple sampled ridden Tough Junkie produced track.
This new joint displays the sad journey of Detroit's Frank Nitti (Frank n Dank) from underground emcee to hipster rapper .
Go Girl, the single off the six-track EP Jewels in my Backpack released by the early 90's label, Delicious Vinyl is depressing and insult to true heads. Autotune and real Hip Hop DON'T go together....ever.
However on another note the video is hella fly. I have admit that. You gotta love anything with DJ Rhettmatic and the whole vibe is throwback to days when Hip Hop in the mainstream was about hvaing fun.
