A nice free-bee this weekend, Oddisee is offering up his ‘101’ album for free download. Straight outta PG County, MD, Oddisee and the rest of the Mello Music Group always hold it down. The album features Phonte, Georgia Anne Muldrow, MED, Little Brother, Jean Grae, J-Live and more. Plus production from Oddisee, Flying Lotus, and M-Phazes! Pretty dope stuff. His latest, ‘Odd Seasons’ has also been on constant rotation here at the Alley Headquarters, so be sure to check out the rest of his work… especially Diamond District, along with the rest of the Mello roster.
And because I’ve been feeling so mellow from listening to Thundercat recently, here’s a favorite from Suicidal Tendencies’ early days…
This reminded me of one of Cage’s latest, which is also dope because Definitive Jux… yeah they still have an awesome catalog… is offering 50% off everything this weekend, so be sure to get your hands on some classics.
Former Def Jukie, Mr. Lif, who is always raw with the rhyme, is touring the West Coast this month with an insane lineup that features Edan, Cut Chemist, and visual director Tom Fitzgerald (of Echo Party fame, and also Cut’s go-to video man)… damn I wish this was coming through DC. Don’t hesitate, flake, or perpetrate if you’re out there, it’s gonna be nuts.
Finally, former Def Jux CEO head honcho, El-P, is releasing his latest single, “Drones Over Brooklyn,” for the Adult Swim Singles Project on Tuesday. So be sure to check out some more radness from those wacky cartoon creators.
