    Warm Blood, Two Hearted, and Beautiful Wave are all definitely worth listening to if you'll into the whole pseudoacoustic sampleheavy whatever

    I just can't get into Death Grips. I think I'll always be nostalgic for Zach Hill's work with Hella or something and just can't full embrace it :-/


    Easy Listening Hella:



    The most famous Hella:


    More interesting Hella:

    I was thinking about doing a primer on Aphex Twin since he's obviously important and blah blah blah, but instead I think I'll say to either name an Aphex Twin song or album you like or just a random word, and I'll send you one that you've never heard but should have, that has the same mood.

    I feel like you would like Siriusmo, if you haven't listened already: https://soundcloud.com/siriusmo

    Could probably recommend a long list of stuff actually.

    Jayceon's return to relevance? Sunday Service has been pretty good so far, and Jesus Piece is looking like a solid album. Cover art controversy will probably limit sales (they already made a different version).

    A lot of people will accuse Game of morphing his flow to emulate whoever happens to be featured alongside him on a particular track. This is true to some degree, but I don't think it necessarily detracts from the songs in general.

    Game "hvn 4 a gangsta" feat. Master P prod. DJ Premier

    Game "Hallelujah" feat. Jamie Foxx prod. Jake One

    [VIDEO]www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nnmn-5dVAsU[/VIDEO]

    Game "black Jesus" feat. Dre (of Cool & Dre) prod. Sap

    [VIDEO]www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJoUtOKlFl4[/VIDEO]

    Game "celebration remix" feat. Bone Thugs N Harmony (song was inspired by first of the month anyway)

    [VIDEO]www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG965RW62os[/VIDEO]

    Game "holy water" -> video very NSFW so I'll just link the soundcloud

    For more cuts like Outstanding, Classic Mellow Mastercuts Volume 1-3 is a great place to start.

    Here's one, but not very obscure though... Keni Burke
