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 [&hellip

DJ Hellblazer – Left Behind(s) vol.2

DJ Hellblazer’s ‘Left Behind(s) 2′ explores a melancholic sense of abandonment. ‘An anthology of tracks left behind’, this is not a release for those summery days, but from the moment Nathalie P’s voice hits those notes on the intro a raw, nostalgic energy is transmitted from record to speaker. It’s deep and it’s dark, but it’s good. Continue Reading
