First post in a really long time-still unsure if there's anyone reading this. If you are though, you're probably here from the link I put on the song "A Stranger's Heart" on YouTube. This is another Theophilus song I kind of dig. It's a little spacey and weird but so is most of his stuff. Anyway, check this out.

I've been a huge fan of Spitta's for a long time, ever since I downloaded Pilot Talk a few years back. Every mixtape and album this dude's put out has been awesome, especially the "Pilot Talk" series, which is aided by Ski Beatz behind the boards, who also did Jay- Z's classic "Reasonable Doubt" and Camp Lo's "Uptown Saturday Night." Curren$y's beats are always super slick and his lyrics and sharp-tongued and use a lot of clever metaphors and similes. This guy kinda flies under the radar so show him some love if you dig this track. Lastly, does anyone read this blog? I'd love to know, so if you're reading this give me a shout out in the comments below Enjoy!

Holy god. This is one the greatest songs I've heard in a really long time. The lyricism is just....awesome. It's full of references to old school hip-hop, so if you guys know your 90s hip-hop this song will make you smile. And, the beat is super upbeat and relaxing. My #2 favorite beat of all time, behind "No Rest For The Weary." Check it.

Damn. I've always liked the pitch-affected vocal samples, and this song perfectly exhibits why. I don't know much about these guys, but their beats are on point, and their lyrics are clever and playful. PLEASE listen to this, you won't regret it.

This is from all the way back in 2003, but I still put this on in the car all the time. Thes One and Double-K do it the right way, all the time. If you're looking for a good, laid-back, lyrical hip-hop album, check out PUTS' "Or Stay Tuned." Enjoy.

If this song was just that smooth beat and that soul singing in the beginning I would be happy. But throw in some perfect A-Plus (haha! that pun sucked...) flow, and it's golden. His stuff with Hiero was dope, but this where he really became ....awesome. Listen up.
