BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah – Gunshowers feat. Elzhi

Canadian jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD have entered remarkable prominence since their early beginnings cover Tyler, The Creator tracks, and now here they are teaming up with Ghostface Killah for a collaborative album. Ghostface must have also gotten a taste for live instrumentation following his collab with Adrian Younge, and from what I’ve already heard it sounds incredibly good. [&hellip

PRhyme (DJ Premier & Royce Da 5’9) – U Looz

DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9 are teaming up for a collaborative album under the name PRhyme – and judging by the new video for ‘U Looz’ it’s going to be mouthwateringly good. We’ve already seen Royce absolutely blitz previous Premo productions, so to get an entire album’s worth is going to be something serious. The self-titled album [&hellip

wun two ocean

wun two – ocean ep (Germany)

I am likely to be wun two‘s number wun fan; the way his ear can procure the most gorgeous loops and manufacture the nicest drums. It’s just supreme music to vibe out to0, and while we wait for his Penthouse LP to drop in December (on vinyl and cassette) we have the ocean ep to fill the void, [&hellip

The Cancel – Criminal (Ukraine)

Something outta Ukraine as production duo The Cancel returns from their hiatus with Criminal. It seems to be an ode to the streets and graffiti life, but it’s full of The Cancel’s tight drums and jazzy samples. It’ll be interesting to see how they proceed from now as well, with their Facebook page saying it’s ‘about to [&hellip

lupe fiasco

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

King K.O.N.G. & Teck-Zilla – Kongzilla

The two beasts King K.O.N.G. and Teck-Zilla join forces for a monster collab release called Kongzilla. With the lizard on the production and the ape on the mic, the heavyweight duo demonstrate their force on a series of eclectic bangers, reinforced by some fresh features. Check it out!
