The title of this song is what the DC hip-hop community collectively sighed upon finding out that Akil Nadir (aka Cool Cee Brown) passed away last weekend.
Seeing Kraftwerk at the 9:30 club this week reminded me how much I love “Computer Love”!
It’s no secret that I love old school hip-hop. “On & On” from Bam and Mr. Dero definitely has that throw back feel on it that I love to hear.
I had the distinct pleasure of opening the 2014 One Mic: Hip-Hop Worldwide festival with a performance on The Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage.
A lame attempt to reorganize my records this past weekend quickly devolved into an extended session of listening to forgotten gems hidden in my vinyl stash. One of my favorite De La Soul cuts, “Sh.Fe.MCs” was released on the rare promo-only Clear Lake Audiotorium EP in 1994.

Busta & Basement Freaks give a nice moombahton / ghetto funk feel to “Jump Around,” ready to set off a dance floor!
New Orleans’ DJ Yamin just released this blend of Triston Palmer’s dancehall classic “Joker Smoker” and Dead Prez’s “Hip Hop.” The result is a smoked-out version of a classic hip-hop tune.
Qdup returns with the 21st volume of the Fort Knox Recordings Monthly Funk The World Cloudcast. Free download!
DJ Stereo Faith, along with DJ Dredd and Keenan Orr, open for Eric Hilton (Thievery Corporation/ESL Music) this Saturday at U Street Music Hall!
