Hip Hop Renaissance

A little break from sports to remind people what real hip hop really is. . .and in light of these bodaciously bogus ‘Songs of the Decade‘ lists – which should be renamed ‘commercial tracks of the decade’ – here is the Track Listing for my Hip Hop Renaissance compilation:
Waitin’ On You – Kenn Star
Trouble Man – Juggaknots
Clear Blue Skies – Juggaknots
Surving the Times – Nas
Hope –
Pete Philly & Perquisite f/ Talib Kweli
The Web – The Roots
We Can’t hear You – The Herd
Brooklyn In My Mind – 9th Wonder f/ Mos Def, Jean Grae, Memphis Bleek
The Healer – Erykah Badu f/ Pharoahe Monch
Brand New – MF Grimm f/ Monsta Island Czars
‘Maica Living – Large Professor f/ Killa Sha & Guardian Leep
Can’t Let Her – Little Brother
Madness In a Cup – Mr. Lif
Dear Zev (Never Give Up) – Scienz of Life
Smile – Juggaknotz f/ Castro
Still Love – Soulstice
Realistically the compilation spans from 1997 – 2009, but since real hip hop (nee, Underground) is never understood nor fairly represented, take a moment to peep said tracks – or email me for a compilation, I’ll send – and you’ll figure out what real eMCees and producers are doing these days.
