So I’ve been complaining about how this first quarter has been a disappointment for hip hop…but I am quite pleasantly surprised by the picks that iTunes made for its “indie spotlight” for the hip hop genre.
What I’ve been spinning a lot is this German producer combo called JR&PH7. These guys are pretty sick…no flashy rap but soulful and eclectic. Lots of great talent presented and there are some solid underground mcees on it.
JR&PH7 – The Standard
Also check out Mr. Lif. Solid mcee from Boston.
Mr. Lif – I Heard It Today
And check out Blame One’s new album. I think it was mostly produced by Exile who did some crazy stuff with Blu.
Blame One – Days Chasing Days
Check these albums out…some great finds via iTunes (who would have thought).
