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.

Sareem Poems – “Tell It”

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