Mikeflo Ft. Kwame Toure ~ Exhibit RBG ((Single))

Mikeflo is back with another leak from his forthcoming mixtape “FLY, FRESH, and RESPONSIBLE VOL. 2. This time around mike brings the RBG essence to one of the most stellar industry beats in recent years, Jay Electronica’s “Exhibit A”. Entitled “Exhibit RBG”, acronym relating to the movement kicked off by dead prez with the release of their revolutionary 2004 album of the same name, the message mikeflo conveys is always powerful and is reflected in his lyrical intent and delivery. The voice of Kwame Toure is sampled in the track, giving it an extra punch of RBG, making the freestyle an overall knockout!

Planet Asia ~ Black Belt Theatre ((Album))

Named after a 1980s Saturday-afternoon TV show and inspired by Planet Asia's favorite films, Black Belt Theatre combines the violent precision of classic kung-fu flicks with the calculated cool of classic blaxploitation movies. "I wanted to make the album like a movie, something you would see in a theater," says Asia. "That's why it has so many features. All the guests feel like different characters in the movie. They're basically just all people I thought were dope," says Asia. "Both young cats I'm feeling and veterans I've always admired." Unlike on his albums with Evidence and DJ Muggs, Asia also got to determine the sonic direction on Black Belt Theatre, resulting in a soul-heavy, blaxploitation-influenced sound. "It was fun because I got to reach out to guys like Oh No and Khrysis for beats, find the best tracks and put together a masterpiece," explains Asia. "It's some esoteric gangster shit…a full plate for the listener."

Muhammad Ali: The Man Behind the Myth

In researching his acclaimed book Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times, author Thomas Hauser got closer to Ali than any previous biographer. Hauser weaves together Ali's own words and the stories of hundreds of family members, friends, rivals, and others who interacted with Ali over the years. The result reveals a deeply spiritual, courageous, and complex man, who forever changed our conception of what makes a champion.

Watch Hauser, Foreman, and Ali's daughter Hana discuss the legacy of "The Greatest," then explore the enhanced ebook edition of Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times:

Gensu Dean ~ Lo-Fi Fingahz ((Album))

Is this album a “classic?” It is for the listener to decide, to discern after the album has been properly absorbed. I can say that Gensu Dean’s strict adherence to timeless qualities is abundantly apparent in Lo-Fi Fingahz and in all of his work for that matter. At the end of the day, what more can anyone ask of an artist and their creation? Did Stradivari, Picasso or Hughes and their corresponding admirers apply the term “classic” immediately after experiencing their works of art? One may never know. What is for certain: only time can prove which art will last and which will fade into obscurity. There is NOTHING standard about Gensu’s debut album. It is with great appreciation of the blueprint of Hip Hop’s timeless sound, that Gensu Dean so masterfully shares his passion with the world.



Erykah Badu ~ Didn't Cha Know ((Classic/Decoded Hieroglyphics))

Transformation...

The scarab (dung beetle of KMT) is an insect which burrows into the mud caused by the Nile flood waters, and after the muddy waters recede, the beetle comes up with a new body, a nu being. The beetle is likened to Ra, the sun, in the morning who comes out of the murky waters of the dark night. The sun rises in the morning as a nu being. The scarab (innerG of Transformation) pushes the sun on its journey every day. In the morning, the sun is Kheper, the scarab, at noon it becomes Ra, and in the evening, the setting sun, it is Tem. These different phases symbolize the one Supreme Being which manifests as a triad of t.i.m.e., past, present and future.

Inspectah Deck ~ Show 'N Prove (Power Of God) ((Classic))

The Older Godz Put Me On...

The power of God's in you, show n prove
(Yeah, this is the power)
The power of God's in you, show n prove
(True power, showin' and provin')
The power of God's in you, show n prove
True, the time has come through
Chosen few, must show and prove

I once asked God to forgive for my sins
Bent on my knees pleadin' to be Heavenly cleansed
Said the Holy Ghost changed the ways and actions of men
When I stood, I felt the same as if I just walked in

I was twelve at the time, held nines, held mines
A frail mind, criminal thoughts well-designed
Then the Older Gods put me on, on how to rock this
Maintain, 360, Lord and live prosperous

His jewel was priceless, keep the cipher righteous
Bare in mind, God, some of your own won't like this
I'm mentally scarred, recooperatin' from abrasure
Fooled by interpretations made from a traitor

It's in my nature, I was taught, that's the first law
Obtain the food, clothin' and the shelter that I search for
The fire in my eyes is hot as Earth's core
What hurts more, the fact that we still dirt poor

In hard times force crimes out of honest man
And most fiend to see the so-called promised land
Sun of Man, knowledge, wisdom and understand
1~*~9
That it's time to take matters in our own hands 1~*~9
