New-ish Music: “Riding Dirty,” Big K.R.I.T. (2014)

I wasn’t sure which song to post when K.R.I.T.’s “See Me On Top 4” came out two weeks ago. Sometimes songs jump out; other times I have to let projects marinate. I’m glad I waited. :)

In other news, there’s only one and a half months left until “Cadillactica” is released. God is good!

Music: “Speak My Piece,” Common (2014)

My love for Common used to be outrageous. I’ve toned it down since then, but I still like to support.

Today, I realized it was crazy that I hadn’t posted anything from “Nobody’s Smiling,” so here we are!

New Music: “Get Paid,” Joey Bada$$ (2014)

New music + a tour (which kicks off today in Boston) + an album on the way = good things for Joey and the many folks who love him.

New-ish Music: “Get Away,” Kehlani (2014)

Last time I posted about Kehlani, a 19-year-old singer from L.A., was when Down 2 Earth featured her on their track “Merlot.” Coincidentally, writer and superstar entrepreneur Alex Elle (alexandraelle) posted about Kehlani—and her new mixtape “Cloud 19”—not too long before that. I downloaded the project and this Ginuwine-sampled track is definitely my favorite!

Download the track directly from Kehlani’s SoundCloud page, and stream the mixtape there as well. (You can download the mixtape on SC, but the easy way is via LiveMixtapes.

Songs You Should Know: “A Girl Like You,” Aaliyah feat. Treach (1996)

I can’t believe this isn’t already on my blog somewhere… This entire album is a ’90s R&B staple.
