Posted in News with tags , , on Sunday, August 30, 2009 by Nolan Levenson

On Friday, Brother Ali sat down with HipHopDX to discuss Us (out so soon! – Sept 22nd). Ali discusses some of the tracks, the new feel of the album, the new topics of the album, and his relationship with his fans. As he has discussed in the past, he ponders why his fans are in such a different social group than the people he grew up with. Follow me after the jump for the entire interview (it’s definitely worth reading).

Atmosphere + Aesop Rock + Murs live freestlye

So I was hoping I would be able to find a video of this. Atmosphere, MURS, and Aesop Rock (Felt 3!) did a show last weekend at Red Rocks in Colorado. As most Atmosphere shows conclude, Slug does a freestyle with his buddies from the show. I apologize for the poor quality. Shout out to durden54 for the video.

New Brother Ali single!

Posted in Audio, Downloads, Media, Music News, News with tags , , , , on Monday, August 17, 2009 by Nolan Levenson

Above you can listen to Brother Ali’s new track “Fresh Air” which was released today digitally. I gotta say, this may be the best hip hop track I’ve heard all year. The beat is simply amazing (although I am a HUGE Ant fan so I’m a little biased). I heard this track live at Soundset and then again at One Day in July in downtown Minneapolis and have been waiting to get this track for a while now. This track is getting me more PUMPED for Ali’s Us due out September 22nd. Make sure you catch Ali with Evidence and Toki Wright on tour this fall.

Felt 3 producer revealed + free track!

And the winnner is……Aesop Rock! That’s right, Aesop Rock will be producing the new Felt album, the tribute still TBA. Rhymesayers released a track yesterday evening for FREE called “Protaganists” with MURS proclaiming “The Felt boys are back, the boys of summer / and this time ya boy Aes Rock is the drummer”.

I was excited to hear the track, but I am a little disappointed with the Aesop Rock selection. While he is a capable producer, I thought RSE and Felt would be pulling something crazier and less expected. Regardless, the track is pretty good, you can download it below or visit the RSE website.

E & A – “Junk” (Video)

Posted in News, Video with tags , , , on Tuesday, August 4, 2009 by Nolan Levenson

Vodpod videos no longer available.

When I went to see Eyedea and Abilites at Fifth Element in Minneapolis recently, they were showing this video on the monitors. Although I am not the biggest E & A fan, the video did look very cool. The video has now been released and it’s for the son entitled “Junk”. It featureas a lot of cool scenes, including a big white room with sweet angles of Abilities scratching. Check it out! Shout out to 2dopeboyz.
