What else is new? Hip hop music is seeing a resurgence of sorts with new releases by mainstream, old-school minded artists such as Nas and Jay-Z. The remedy is coming. With word of an upcoming joint from Mos Def and Pharoah Monch, hip hop is staging a crazy comeback.
Something that was overshadowed over the christmas break is the EP of Madlib & Talib Kweli. Talib Kweli has tried to hit the mainstream bubble with little puncture, but he is still probably the best MC this side of the pacific. Madlib will always be Madlib. Beats that are so dirty that they are actually pretty clean.
Anyway, go get this EP and reactivate hip hop.
