Just spotted via twitter . In a post- Frank Ocean world, do people still care about the The Weeknd though?
Still one of my favorite UK hip-hop groups of all time and I wouldn't disagree with Tru Thought's contention that "Money Mad" is the "finest UK hip hop single of all time!" Listen to the full "Money Mad" single re-release featuring remixes by Drumagick and Wrongtom HERE . [video via DK Tumblr ]

The amazing Wonder-full party started by Bobbito and DJ Spinna being held for the 15th year running in NYC. Can't say how it's been recently but before I left life in Brookyln, this was the best party in NYC . Buy tickets HERE . And the homegirl, Tuku has a tribute show called "Through the Wonder Door" the night before to kick off this coming long weekend in Toronto too. Click for details HERE [...]
Nice soulful, throwback-feeling track from Colemine Records for your Sunday listening pleasure. Look for Fat Night to tour the southeast in Mid August in support of their forthcoming debut full-length album.
I've featured the homegirl, Dominique Young Unique on the blog before . Two years later, this track surfaces and you know what? It ain't too bad. She still shows some promise. Agree?
Was diggin' the homie, M-Rock 's Daft Punk refix . This remix of the Badu/Janelle Monae track that dropped a while back feels a little tepid to me tbh however. Disagree? Let me know in the comments.... [ via ]
Record ain't bad but do people still care about Luda in 2013? Just wondering out loud. Let me know.... [via Defjamblr ]
I actually dig The-Dream and Hov is... well. Hov but this one is not blowing my mind. You? [h/t: mp3waxx.com ]
Found this one via my homegirl, Move on Up . Check out her exclelent, soul, reggae, jazz n hip-hop radio show on Radio Regent , Sat. 1-3PM

I know I'm (pop) R&B-ing it out right now but this record is actually great. Miguel is the truth right now... BUY Mariah Carey feat. Miguel – "#Beautiful" on iTunes HERE [via XclusivesZone.net ]
I know this i wild old in blog/online time but I just got up on it. Dubious racial imagery and content in the song aside, I think record is kind of hot. When I was up at the plantation at 550, after he broke with "Run It" and his debut album, they always talked about how Breezy had the talent to make a modern day Thriller . I don't think he ever came close to doing it despite all the hits he had and he may never fully shake the cloud around his relationship with Rihanna and [...]
