Method Man & Redman – Cereal Killer

Very similar beat and rhyme-scheme as “Fat Cats Bigga Fish” by the Coup.  Did Meth and Red rip off Boots Riley?  Whats the deal?  Either way, they are both dope songs.   Off Blackout (1999).

Béla Fleck – When Joy Kills Sorrow

The song title doesn’t lie; the tune starts off slow and sorrowful, then picks up into a joyous raucous, and fluctuates between throughout the tune. Béla’s been heralded as the best banjo player alive, and this song is so damn dank that a newer bluegrass ensemble named themselves “Joy Kills Sorrow.” Sam Bush, coincidentally heralded as the best mandoline player alive, is on the track, as is Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Tony Rice, and Mark Schatz.

From Béla Fleck’s studio 1999 album The Bluegrass Sessions. The albums features veritable legends of bluegrass, including John Hartford and the recently deceased Earl Scruggs.
