Thursday, July 27th, 2017

The Roots and Bilal contributed this sprawling, potent new track “It Ain’t Fair” to the soundtrack to the new film Detroit starring John Boyega. The song, which is dominated by Bilal’s vocals, clocks in at over 6 minutes, and features a couple of particularly fiery Black Thought verses.

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

Tim Westwood takes it way back to 1995, the year that I graduated from high-school and just about the peak of my Redman stannery, for this week’s Throwback Thursday drop.

This was recorded in New York for Tim and Funk Flex’s Rap Xchange series.

Drake Previews New Music During Run with Gervonta Davis

Monday, July 24th, 2017

Drake was down in Houston this past weekend for his annual Houston Appreciation celebration, and during his stay he caught up with boxer Gervonta Davis and got in some road work. In a video Davis posted to social media, the rapper and athlete can be seen getting a late night jog in while a previously unreleased Drake track plays in the background. Drake shouts Davis out in the song and I understand the beat samples Peverelist’s “Roll With The Punches” from 2007.

Check it out below. UPDATE: Maybe that’s not Drake on that song? I thought the voice sounded a bit unusual on the Davis mention, but the next bar or so certainly sounded like Drake to me. In any event, Drake went for a run with Gervonta Davis.
