Common teams up with Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes for “Saving Grace” from his A Beautiful Revolution Pt. 2 project. The Artist Formally Known As Sense delivers what one might call Adult Contemporary Hip Hop with this fine offering.

It’s about time Royce 5’9″ had a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert. The living legend from Rock City delivers a stripped-down set of songs from his extraordinarily extensive catalog that spans two decades. From recent songs like “God Speed” to a classic such as the DJ Premier produced “Boom,” this is a treat for anybody who has been a fan of Royce over the years.
Lupe Fiasco takes a swing at Drake’s “Champagne Dreams” and gives it a facelift lyrically on the appropriately titled “Diet Soda Poetry.”
Is there any question that Lupe is one of the best pure lyricists we’ve ever seen?
It only took 25 years but AZ’s Doe or Die 2 is finally here. Was it worth the wait? You should probably listen for yourself but one of the standout tracks is “The Ritual” which finds AZ alongside Conway the Machine and Lil Wayne over production from Alchemist. Certified banger.
Did you know that there are two versions of Nas’ represent that DJ Premier produced? DJ Premier explains how the song ended up happening, why Large Professor was instrumental in Nas’ career and the original version of the song that was a lot more jazz-influenced.
Chris Rivers joins Termanology and Amadeus on the song “Superiority Complex.” Taken from the album Termanology & Amadeus 360 The Beat King “360”
The late Phife Dawg’s “French Kiss” gets the remix treatment with Redman and Illa J on “French Kiss Trois.” Of course, it’s dope. Why wouldn’t it be?
A tribute to the fallen soldiers of Hip Hop courtesy of Young Noble and Conway the Machine that features DJ Premier on the cuts. Rest in power to all!
DJ Premier takes us back to how he concocted KRS-One’s “MCs Act Like They Don’t Know” as the lead single from his album 1995 self titled album. Preemo tells the story of how the beat was made and The Blastmaster’s initial reaction before making it the first single off his album.
