These dudes (and ladies) can rap and rap and rap some more. Funky Four Plus One More’s “Rappin and Rocking the House” is one of my very favorites from the disco rap genre.
NYC-based producer Cousin Cole put together this “blizzard-themed selection last night for buildingbeats, an awesome NYC nonprofit.”
Chuck D. from Public Enemy is a living legend. And joining forces with De La Soul in this sick track “The People.”
Capitan Futuro has commissioned producer Tom Drummond for a world funk remix of “Oye Mami Ft Pedro Santana” to get the right dance floor moving.
Azealia Banks manages to draw from hip-hop’s past, as well as the cutting edge of dance music, flex some impressive lyrical chops and make a great pop record.
In the hands of Casual Connection, Salt ‘n’ Pepa’s classic jam, “Let’s Talk About Sex” gets beefed-up drums and an extended tease of an intro before that timeless chorus drops (and the hands go in the air).
“Without A Clue” is from The 1978ers recent full-length release People Of Today, a mandatory acquisition for fans of traditional hip-hop.
Jules Born drops this nice little number called “Ask Someone” on his Soundcloud page. I really like the chilled out vibes and tripped out guitar.
“The Way We Do It” is a real hip-hop song which doesn’t stray far from the Golden Era charm that we’ve come to love from Jurassic 5.
You don’t want to miss this fun blend and the illest beat of the year, Schoolboy Police “Finger Greens.”
