Just over a month ago, D-Sisive dropped this gem. The recently Juno-nominated rapper covers Naughty By Nature’s “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” from their 1991 self-titled album, and does it justice. Frequent collaborator Muneshine handles the production. Check it out below.
Nardwuar was at SXSW last week and put in some serious work, interviewing Kendrick Lamar, Danny Brown, Action Bronson, and A$AP Rocky. If you’ve seen his interviews before, you’ll know what to expect. I have a feeling he still has more interviews from SXSW, too. Check out the interviews below. For more on Kendrick Lamar, check out our very own Chedo’s interview with him from last year. Photo credit to Bryan Bruchman.
Late pass on this one, but I thought it had to be shared. I’ve been listening to TiRon & Ayomari for a few years now, and this past year they collaborated for the full length album A Sucker for Pumps, which was one of my favourite albums of the year. This has to be my favourite song off the album. The Slick Rick sample works perfectly, and the “Synthetic Substitution” drums are BANGIN! Photo credit to Andy J. Scott.
Sene dropped this single just over a week ago, “Backboards” is off his upcoming album called brooklyknight. Sene & Blu have gotten pretty comfortable with each other, as they collaborated for the 2009 full-length album A Day Late & A Dollar Short, which was entirely produced by Blu. This time, Sene’s handling the production on “Backboards”, and Blu joins him on the mic. brooklyknight is set to be released on April 24th.
I liked the original version of “Nothing To Lose”, but will.i.am’s remix makes this song even better. Instead of the original pop chorus, he opts for a golden-era hip-hop feel with a soulful sample. Nas sounds right at home. Listen for K’naan’s “Ten Crack Commandments” reference in the third verse. Photo credit to ballerstatus.
