Mixtape: Fashawn – Ode to Illmatic

By accident, I forgot to post this when it first came out, but better late than never.  Making what is essentially an Illmatic cover album is a bold move, but if there were one person I believe could do the classic album justice, it would be Fashawn.  Much like Nas when he released his classic debut Illmatic, Fashawn’s amazing debut …

Pantha Du Prince – Welt Am Draht (Animal Collective Remix)

I don’t know much about this track, but so far, I consider every track animal collective has ever touched gold.  Animal Collective doesn’t remix other people’s music very much, but they definitely should because this track is once again amazing.  It has a darker feel with swirling rounded vocals most easily compared to music on their Fall Be Kind EP, …

2 New Big Boi Songs

Here are 2 more great leaks from Big Boi’s upcoming album Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty entitled “Back Up Plan” and “Follow Us (Feat. Vonegutt).  They are sprinkled with tags, but despite that, once again, these are both songs that will soon be in heavy rotation on my iPod.  I don’t know if it is worth repeating …
