    Been listening to some experimental hip hop with a bit more unconventional samples jazz, electronic, styles, etc. Jenkins is good listen he has a few tapes and are all a good spin imo.

    A conceptual album that's one story about a futuristic time where a vigilante takes revenge into his own hands. Everything was done by Blueprint on this album lyrics, beats, engineering, etc.

    SubTronik & Rei Amuro Return To The Planet Of The Breaks . Sadly this is only in digital format . I couldn't find a YouTube video to post so here is the bandcamp link.
    https://subtronik.bandcamp.com/
    This is a great experimental , lo-fi , indie hiphop joint . SubTronic and Rei Amuro are one and the same like Quasimoto and Madlib . I definitely recommend giving it a listen ....
    @Puffers Shabazz Palaces is dope , but I always preferred Butterfly when he was with Digable Planets ,who I also recently saw live on a reunion tour with Camp-Lo . That too was an amazing show !!!!

    Yesss!!! I love Curren$y! That Stash House feature with Freddie Gibbs off of Andretti 12/30, goddamn!

    I've been listening to Fo20, The Legend of Harvard Blue, Cigarette Boats, Revolver...

    Stupid smooth beats and flows, perfect for the heavy sessions.

    Easily some of the best verses of both artists.

    Stash house was dope, Gibbs and spitta always seem to step it up when they're together.

    His beat choices are almost impeccable cigarette boats with fraud was dope AF, he's one of the hardest working artists in the game and just seems to get better. Honestly he might be one of my favorite artists still making music. He's so consistent, I have a play list of just Currensy with a lot of my favorites on there it's like 60 tracks plus and needs to be updated :lol:

    Bourbon street secrets, return to the winners circle, priest Andretti, verde terrace, cigarette boats, 3 piece set, covert coupe, etc, there all some of my favorite tapes and I can play many of them front to back with no skips. I can't think of any other artist I can say that about except maybe Mac Dre (RIP).

    I'll stop here but I could go all day. If you haven't heard 3 piece set its a cool little tape that's slept on even by fans imo.

    Movies For the Blind is an awesome album, I think Hell's Winter was Cage's peak though. DefJux was an amazing record label. Rip Camu Tao.

    Man thank you so much for posting that.

    Words cannot describe all the good feels and awe I got from watching that. Such an amazing assembalance of different styles. So many people performing flawlessly in all these pieces of a greater picture. The vibe they are all feeling is tangible, as if they're they're all riding the same wave. She's got her shoes off just feeling the vibrations of the energy.... connected.

    Synergy



    Keeping the good vibes going how about Spreading some Love with Mick
