Here’s a new Alchemist-produced cut off of Rakaa (of Dilated Peoples)’s upcoming album Crown of Thorns. As always Alchemist comes through with an amazing, goldon age-esque beat and 1 by 1 Rakaa, Fashawn, Evidence, and Defari each proceed to murder it respectively. This has to be one of my favorite new tracks in a while.
When Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy was asked to either play Ashes of American Flags or Single Ladies, he did what any indie legend would do and took on the task of recreating Beyonce’s unstoppable 2008 summer hit. Although he couldn’t recreate the dance, Tweedy does a good job reading the lyrics. The performance is good for a laugh but Beyonce had one of the best music videos of all time!
