the hip-hop post

i found good rap. intense, i know. I will now share.
First, Mos Def. Actor/rapper. Apparently his last couple albums have been really bad, so everyone is very excited that his latest is so fantastic. Enjoy:
First, my favorite. Fantastic beat, very very good. And love the appearence by Slick Rick (rapper from the late 80s early 90s)
Auditorium (feat. Slick Rick) - Mos Def

I like to listen to this one right after Auditorium, good contrast, and they flow together well.
Life In Marvelous Times - Mos Def

Cool one, very simple beat, but very good.
Quiet Dog (Bite Hard) - Mos Def

History (feat. Talib Kweli) - Mos Def

Next, Brother Ali. From New York. Damned good.

This song is awesome, lyrics are all anti-US government, check out the lyrics. Love the beat, good blues feel.
Uncle Sam Goddamn - Brother Ali

Another good one with a good video
Us - Brother Ali

And last, Jaydiohead. Awesome mash-up of Jay-Z vocals with Radiohead instrumentals by DJ Mintyfreshbeats. This man is a genius. I don't even like Jay-Z or Radiohead that much, but this is amazing.
My two favorites, both fantastic:
Reckoner's Encore - Jaydiohead
Song and Cry - Jaydiohead

Head here to download the album and encore EP (i like the EP better, but its all good). All free.
