Maxx Julian and Sincere Vega at it again and this time they bought Carminelitta (Word Is Bond) along with the soul pouring of Domignan, a deep drum and oceanic track that once again proves the When Giants Meet idea right. Their SinAMaxx album was fantastic and part 2 is coming up so get them ears prepared with 'Vibration', a grown lyrical approach to relationships. Peace to those joining forces to create art.
This... BamaLoveSoul has gone and created a set of fantasmic (it's a word, trust me) Erykah Badu tracks, remixes and flips. An hour of audio tribute to the talented and personal favorite Erykah Badu, how can you NOT approve? He did it right and that's what matters. Download that joint and ride out, mega props to Bama.
It's Tuesday and you're at work (well most of us), you need something to pick ya up from the slump and grind right? Ok then give this Rob Milton album a spin (clicks) and get your mind right, a soulful journey into sound that will have you laying back and wondering what the big fuss was all about. It's always good to have a nice balance in music and I actually needed this right now, just good music and positive vibes all around to set the day. It just feels good, it's that simple and you should sit and enjoy the flowers and they music rides out.
The brother stays working I tell ya and it's another notch on the stellar belt, Elhae is back with 'XXI' an album that is enjoyable and in great tune on certain lifes issues. There is this immensley personal feeling I've gotten with the last album and this one, as if we are peering into the Truman Show version of his mental. With catchy tunes ranging from radio friendly hooks and rhythms in 'Way Too Long' to deep family discussion on 'William Way' he shows that real life still makes great music no matter what you go thru and you can still show artistic confidence on the way. Maybe this is why I dig Elhae's music that much, he's a dreamer and a do'er at the same time while opening a door to his soul in a very well (self)produced album. It's uplifting and at the same time he can be talking shit about your skill, varied in beats and bass yet has a soulful aproach overall... it's Elhaes sound.The range of topics and sound accompanied by what I think is a great balance of honest emotions and cockiness simply works in this case. We all have our ups and downs but it works soo much better when there is a dope beat carrying out our woes and accomplishments haha. I still see that path of glory in the horizon for this artist, stay true and keep it sounding good.

'Sheed continues on his path with focus and determination on staying sharp, another fine example of what this emcee has to offer. Produced by the master Kenny Dope, that soulful intro soothes the beast and brings inevitable head nod. Peace to them both, keep up the great work!
