I just heard a little bit of this new album by Sareem Poems (formerly Poems and Sharlok Poems) called Black and Read All Over.  There are a couple of great tracks. I would highly recommend checking it out. The album features Akil of J5, Pigeon John, Theory Hazit, LMNO, Scarub, & Ohmega Watts.

Here are my faves:

Sareem Poems – “Tell It”

Sareem Poems – “Lower the Boom” (feat. Pigeon John & Akil of Jurassic 5)

It’s been 10 long years since Chali 2na, Akil, Mark 7even, Zaakir (Soup), Cut Chemist & DJ Nu Mark bust onto the hip-hop scene with their legendary Jurassic 5 EP. The Jurassic 5 EP was as close to a perfect record as you could get, hard hitting drums with great samples and absolutely amazing lyrics.

To celebrate the eleventh anniversary of this modern day classic, the EP is being re-released (it had been out of print since 2004) with additional bonus tracks (there are 29 tracks total on 2 discs), as well as a DVD with live performances, a documentary and the video for “Concrete Schoolyard”. I don’t know about you, but this package seems to have a great deal of added value here. For all of you die-hard J5 fans (I happen to be a pretty damn big one) this is a great item for you to add to the collection.jurassic5b1
