Lupe Fiasco – Lilies feat. Sirah

Consistent readers of Word Is Bond will know that I consider Lupe Fiasco‘s descent from greatness is one of the most tragic things to happen to hip hop in the new Millenium, and while it’ll take something phenomenal to truly arrest that decline ‘Lilies’ is the best thing I’ve heard from him in a while. Soulful production (provided by The Buchanans) reminiscent of his Food & Liquor days and a crooning feature from Sirah, ‘Lilies’ is on point. It doesn’t quite look like it’s from a release, but at least you can download it for free!

Buggs Tha Rocka – Bad Habits prod. Hop Trax

New cat in the game Buggs Tha Rocka brings his A-game on the soulful, laid back joint ‘Bad Habits’. On this Hop Trax-produced song he pens his struggles with a cocky flow to back it up.

“…Who got the top spot, yeah I’m gunning sh-t
No fronting though,Tell me who you running with, if not me, you better get to running then
The space ship is coming kid, Galaxy enterprise, we on the rise my nig”

Bad Habits is taken from his forthcoming album Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet.

Surock – Broccoli feat. Blu

This will be most people’s introduction to MC and producer Surock, but the indomitable Blu jumps on with him for ‘Broccoli’, the first single from Surock’s upcoming Fuck You Very Much EP. Whenever greens are mentioned in the culture of hip-hop, you normally know what they refer to and of course ‘Broccoli’ is no exception, but it’s a nice track to spark up to, with the beat bouncy but mellow, complimented by smooth flows. Fuck You Very Much drops in December.

INTERVIEW: WIB Meets Signif

Welcome to the 2nd edition of WIB Meets. This time around we hooked up with an emcee who graced our pages numerous times without number and it was a pleasure getting her on the hot seat. She just released her latest project ‘Friction’ so we think it’s a great time to peer into her thoughts. As expected we learn about her one special super hero ability, her biggest highlight being an indie artist and a surreal encounter with Anthony Anderson and Sway.

Don’t foirget to also catch up with more of  Signif’s  on WIB HERE

deadxbeat – [ leftover​.​_slops ]

I’ve been really, really in to that lo-fi, jazzy, minimalist hip-hop sound recently, so when I stumbled across deadxbeat’s Soundcloud it was as if I discovered a goldmine. The dude creates so much and throws a hell of a lot out there – nice to see someone so productive – but of course that means there are some jems that will be left to be covered in dust.  is a thirty-track collection of leftover beats that you can download free of charge, and they serve as a nice introduction in to the guy’s sound. Hope you groove as much..
