I’ve been saving this one for a while…

Every song can mean something different to each listener. For me this is a really relaxed Monday off when I don’t have to get anything done. No pressure to do one thing or the other, and no stress about work coming up the day after. Everything just flows, and time seems to last as long as it should.

What goes through your mind when you hear this? Do enjoy.

Our man Reach dropped this one a few weeks back. An enjoyable listen. It’s hot! It has a little bit of everything. And it’s self produced?? Fresh.

In this vast expanse of a genre that we call Hip-Hop, I think it’s important that each artist brings something specific to their particular group of listeners. What does Illogic bring to the table? From what I’ve heard so far, it sounds as though they tend to write music for Emcees, for any one who has every tried to emcee, and for those who deeply appreciate the actual craft of rhyme writing. They get a bit more intricate, and they say a lot of things that few artists really speak on. To entertain, tell stories, or even to just pretend can be entertaining in Hip-Hop these days. But at the end of the day I think that people will always gravitate towards lyrics written about things that they can relate to personally. KRS said it best!

The year of Infinito 2017 continues!

Short and sweet.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALCOLM X!!

Infinito 2017, 2-0 for 2017, WOT!?

Here’s the deal, it’s looking to be the year of Infinito, lol, plan is 1 album a month = 12 albums and so far I’m feeling this. Consistency.. Man’s catalogue this year alone will be bigger than some cats over a career. Big up!

Also, respect and rest in power to Dr. Frances Cress Welsing (featured).

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