Four Tet – Unspoken
Quasimoto’s Certificate of Recognition from the city of Los Angeles. Madlib’s stoned, brick carrying cartoon alias Quasimoto got a certificate of recognition from the city of Los Angeles, signed by the Mayor and the 13-person city council. They cite his “excellence in masonry.” Some city governments spend all their time worrying about financial problems, education and transportation — props to the City of L.A. for keeping their priorities straight.
Quasimoto recognized for excellence in masonry by L.A. mayor, city council.

Over the last few months, Pro Era member, CJ Fly, was said to be preparing to release his debut solo mixtape, and today, he decided to give the fans a brand new song titled, “the error”, produced by Cookin Soul.
“My pro Capital STEEZ considered the Progressive Era as an contradiction and since he was my inspiration for this song I decide to make the title have deeper meaning too. We make the ERA, they make the error. So turn your speakers on max and listen carefully. Hope you love it #LONGLIVESTEELO ” - CJ Fly
Before you listen to Tyler, the Creator’s third album, “Wolf,” keep this in mind: The rapper lives to offend. “Wolf” has enough slurs against gays to keep GLAAD busy for the next year, and he is an equal opportunity offender, doling out insults against women and others over 18 tracks.
Much like his breakthrough album, 2011’s “Goblin,” Tyler continues to rap with no filter, but in trying to be overly brash, he ends up detracting and distracting from what overall is a pretty good album.
50 Cent teams with his Aftermath label mate Kendrick Lamar for his latest single ‘We Up’. The track originally featured G-Unit’s Kidd Kidd, bit last week Fiddy decided to pull Kidd Kidd’s verse, and replace it with another verse of his own.
The music video was shot an expensive Hollywood crib, that shows 50 Cent flaunting his lifestyle and women, with Kendrick also making an appearance in the Eif Rivera-directed clip.
So A$AP Rocky and Skrillex went to the Dominican Republic. An almost two-minute intro highlights kids with guns in crystal clear HD. Rocky speaks some Español, wears the brightest of colors, and starts rooftop-rapping to a faraway Skrillex. America’s patron saint of wub-wub does some karate and air-splits. The bros ride mopeds. It’s nothing like a Junot Díaz book, and it’s not as fun a party as Drake’s “Started from the Bottom” clip, but it’s … something.forthenighrt
So mellow out and sit back, relax and listen to a track dedicated to the backs! …rhymes comin soon.

It’s clear from the pen-and-pixel cover that Mista Thug Isolation, the full-length debut of Virginia rapper and producer Shawn Kemp (under the guise Lil Ugly Mane), is so admirably self-conscious that it excels in all that it presents. Each succeeding verse embellishes his ethos as a weed-smoking, trigger-happy sex fiend. Lil Ugly Mane’s an exaggerated personality, but he delivers it in an accustomed manner, as if we’re peering into his quotidian outings. Like fellow double-threat MF DOOM, his character and music are inseparable.
