Any of you heard this yet?? Lady Leshurr seems to have a good formula going, and I don’t see how anything could get in her way. Maybe that’s it. Maybe that’s “the juice”?? You gotta love a good shine-on-the-haters song.

Happy Monday to all…

Woke up last Monday feeling a bit down, very tired, and felt like I was buckling under that week’s stress before it even started. Didn’t want to face the world! It was going to be a challenging day I would have liked a longer weekend, or a longer sleep for that matter. We all know how it is!

So what did I do? I reached for a tried, tested and true remedy for me, which is positive hip-hop. There was a time when I would have started bumping some hardcore tunes and just gritted my teeth through it, angry and all. But that’s even more exhausting, and that’s no way to start the week. Nowadays I’m really digging the positive energy, and The Shinsight Trio never disappoints.

Ocean Skyline, from their album Moonlight Sunrise, was a true blessing that morning out of the many great Shinsight Trio songs I listened to that morning. Takes your mind right away, and like a quick vacation, sometimes that’s all you need to get you started.

Hope you enjoy this one like I did.

Available on iTunes

Forgot about this!! Haven’t heard this song since 1996!

I remember my older brother was watching TV and this music video was on. At the time I liked the beat (but remember it being faster for some reason). Asked him who the artist was and he said “A Plus”… later on I was checking the archives, trying to find out more about this emcee. But for some reason I couldn’t. After a while I thought that maybe my brother had meant to say “AZ”… I dunno, both are from New York, and for some reason I heard a resemblance in flow, crazy? Looks like they collaborated early on though. Anyway, I’m feeling invigorated off of this; not only does it bring me back, but it reminds me of how I came into loving this artform.

PEACE, and enjoy.

Definition of the conscious boom bap. Could be an album name, but J.R. gets dibs!

“Roll with a rap platoon, no dark mist, it’s the black lagoon; fist to the north star, drastic tune…”

Forgot how nice this one was. Buying this… Again.

And yeah, it’s Murs Day-Thursday 😛
