Kanye West “Runaway”

Ok, while we’re on the Kayne subject (I was sharing my deep feelings about him right here) here is the much talked about 30 minute mini movie… I have to admit I am pleasantly surprised. I knew it was going to be super over the top but I wasn’t expecting …

Future Classic : Kayne, Kweli & Consequence “Chain Heavy”

Like a lot of people I have mixed feelings about Kayne. As a producer and all around musical art director I have nothing but respect. As an emcee is where I find him kind of average. On tracks where you have a lot of quality MC’s he clearly isn’t on …

Forgotten Treasure: Devin the Dude “See What I Can Pull”

Devin the Dude is just criminally underrated. Dude from Houston has been putting out records every year or two and he’s never really gotten the mainstream praise he should have. “See what I can pull” is from his first record back in 1998 and it’s just such a lazy southern …
