The Roots – Rising Down ft. Mos Def & Styles P

The Roots are absolutely one of the best hip hop groups of all time, and Black Thought should get more love for his flow.  This gem is the title track off Rising Down (2008).

Nappy Roots – No Static

Much love for Nappy Roots and their feel good country rap tunes.  This one samples Nice & Smooth’s “Sometimes I Rhyme Slow” on the chorus.

No static, got an automatic, too much of anything makes you an addict.  Wise words.   Off The Humdinger (2008).

Paper Route Gangstaz – Grind Baby

Like this one.  Sampling Weezer’s “Say it Ain’t So”.  Off Fear and Loathing in Huntsvegas (2008), which is a cool album/mixtape.

Drake – Juice

Nice beat paying homage to “Tom’s Diner” by Suzanne Vega, which was adapted to a more hip hop beat by 2pac on “Dopefiend’s Diner”.

Railroad Earth – Hard Livin’

These guys are are a rising force in the bluegrass scene, though their music defies any sort of general classification. The members coalesced out of various musical outfits in the Jersey area, believe it or not. This is off 2008’s Amen Corner

ABN ( Z-Ro & Trae ) – Turnin’ Heads

Just learned from the previous post the Trae (now known as Trae Tha Truth) of ABN was shot last night in Houston.  He is currently in the hospital, let’s hope he gets through it.  This song is from ABN’s 2008 album It Is What It Is.
