Name Your Price on Bandcamp
Now some hip hop from across that big ol’ pond we call the Atlantic. I just stumbled across these dudes yesterday and I have to say, their new 4-track EP is totally fun and awesome. But you say “Nate, what else can I expect from this duo? Your use of ‘awesome’ isn’t much of a descriptor.” You know what I say to that, you’re wrong, it is the only way to describe their sound (not actually true, but it is just that awesome).
If you enjoyed this track, you might dig this jam: Great Scott – Everything I Do Goin’ Be Funky
This is a duo from Vancouver, they have a song (featured here) that is awesome, and that is just about all I know of them. Hey “The Say What Rights”: what gives? Holla at me and then make more music. The world deserves to hear such a unique sound.

It’s almost bizarre seeing a rapper of this stature addressing a concern that I hold dear to my heart (aka global climate change). Not only that, but do rap it over a sick Buddy Peace beat. Don’t be a sucka, listen to this track, then go green.

As only The Coup are capable (with the help of Justin Sane from one of my favorite punk bands Anti-Flag), they make anti-establishment anthems fun, upbeat, and completely enthralling. And even more awesome is the fact that they successfully combined two genres which have very little in common in the sonic sense (punk and hip hop). Aesthetically they come from a similar place (i.e. disillusionment), but yeah, I definitely never thought this combination could work. I think The Coup are probably the only ones capable of it. In other news, here’s the latest controversy in hip hop: legendary rapper Aesop Rock and progressive folk singer/song-writer Kimya Dawson teamed up on a project they call The Uncluded. I thought this would be a good post to include it in since they also attempt to combine two unlikely genres: hip hop and folk. It has really divided hip hop fans. I, for one, really enjoy it but apparently hip hop heads around the world are shocked! What do y’all think?
This is a track from easily my favorite hip hop record in a looonnggg time. Seattle duo Art Vandelay (taking their name from Seinfeld’s George Costanza’s alter ego which in itself deserves huge points) put together this really progressive yet still accessible record. Totally unique, totally enthralling, totally tubular. This track fits that criteria.
