2012 is lookin good for hip hop music as hip hop icons reclaim their territory of releasing HEAT into the universe. One of my favorites of all time KRS-ONE has reignited the BDP reign with his album release alongside Kenny Parker. This is the most anticipated being 20 years in making.This project is full of treats for the ear. He even brings along Channel Live to add to this masterpiece. You can purchase this on I-tunes(CLICK IMAGE)

Okay folks...especially all you real hip hop connoisseurs....add this to your library..I just got wind of these two brotha's and don't know much about them..What I can tell you as if you're missing the hip hop that had the energy of 90's hip hop names like Mobb Deep, Raekwon, Ghostface, Big L and Group Home with head-nod tracks and dope lyrics that compliment each other, then you will definitely dig this!!!
RE:GENERATION MUSIC PROJECT encompasses a documentary film that examines the history of different musical genres through the eyes of five of the most influential electronic producers/DJ’s in music today, along with the original music created for the project. Mark Ronson, DJ Premier, The Crystal Method, Pretty Lights and Skrillex each take a specific musical style and explore it by writing and recording a brand new track with a grouping of influential collaborators in that genre.
In this video, Mark Ronson heads to Piety Street Studios and Preservation Hall in New Orleans to meet up with Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Trombone Shorty, members of the Dap Kings and Zigaboo Modeliste to record a raw, jazzy number titled “A La Modeliste”

This is some melodic midnight attitude for ya!Record Breakin’ Music introduces a new addition their family, Columbia Nights. This is single release of the cover of Little Dragon’s “Stormy Weather” recordeded last year. It is now available for FREE DOWNLOAD on the Recordbreakin Bandcamp site(see below)
Drawing from soul, hip-hop, R&B, electronica, and jazz, Columbia Nights hopes to add to the conversation by offering a fresh take on a timeless tradition. Co-producers John E Daise and Hayling Price made their rounds in Philadelphia playing the city’s trademark blend of neo-soul, and vocalist Sarai Abdul-Malik met the pair midway through her studies at Howard University’s Jazz Department. Joined by their love of vinyl, laughter and Thai iced tea, the Washington, D.C. based trio creates a unique sound rooted in balance; their sounds represent a synthesis of the analog and the digital, the bright and the dark, the warm and the wintry.

Check out Jah-I-Witness Emcee's latest video "Made In The USA". This brother continues to impress me with his mission to restore the true artistry to hip hop.

The track "Made In The USA" is featured on Jah-I's "The Struggle, The Love, The Glory" release which is definitely worth a listen and available now(see below the video):
Hip hop artist AKIL NADIR is taking no shorts when it comes to putting himself on the map. His new single titled "Word Is Bond" is just a taste of what to expect from this dope MC..His lyrical delivery will have you reminiscing about the days of KRS-ONE,Kool G. Rap and Buckshot.
