Forget the wait....thanks to onsmash.com
This is a snapshot of N.A.S.A's video for my favorite track off their album ...'Gifted...ft. Kanye West, Santigold, and Lykke Li...The video premiers tonight @ 1am on MTV2 Subteranean...The clip is directed by Three Legged Legs..Can't wait to see it tonight...Will be posted here if you miss it...
Another SPZSHIP favorite...Outasight's joint off the Mick Boogie & Press Play Show mixtape..'From There To Here'....this record has been on major rotation since I heard it and its one thats definitely worth highlighting. Cook Classics does some amazing work on the production tip(easily one of my new favorite producers) and Outasight delivers an amazing lyrical performance and his work on the chorus gives the song an infectious and catchy vibe that'll leave you wanting more...
Outasight - What I Know (prod. Cook Classics)
Cause he can take photos like the ones after the jump and they'll end up in Italian Vogue....These are actually supposed to highlight these rather dope Gold watches(which is a rather high coincidence I'm posting this cause of a post I'm putting together..coming soon) on his wrist.
On Dogg After Dark.
Jacques Jams, Vol. 1: Endurance coming real soon....Gonna be dope I'm sure.

Interesting to learn the creative space in which Cudi wrote 'Day n Nite'. I love it when artist give you a peak into their world like that.
'Cop bud....listen to Ratatat for hours and hours...and just f_____ write songs by myself in the smoke...'
Seriously...My favorite Q-tip solo release...I played this and 'Gettin Up' like crazy when I got my hands on Tip's album...... You kind of had to know this was coming if you've been paying attention to Ye's blog...
Q-tip just posted this one via his myspace....
Update: Yeezy dropped the CDQ
Q-tip - We Fight We Love (Remix) ft. Kanye West & Consequence[CDQ]

Sick of Mashups?...Well this one may get you back into them..Adrian Champion brings you another blend tape whose time has come..."Stars & Stripes: White Stripes Re-imagined"...The tape is a mashup of White Stripes and Hip-hop classics from some of Hip-hops greats...
Shouts to Illroots & Amajanese
Adrian Champion on the project:
I was late jumping on The White Stripes bandwagon. But, when I heard "Doorbell" a few years back I became an instant fan. That raw, classic sound was so fresh to me. I went straight to iTunes and downloaded the whole album. It wasn't long before I owned everything they'd ever released.
What really got me was that I wanted to sample almost every song. But, I couldn't just shamelessly sample their whole catalog. Plus, I had just decided to move away from sampling and focus on writing original music. So, a remix project seemed like the thing to do, and the idea was born.
I started digging through my collection and fitting all the pieces together. My goal was to use only samples from The White Stripes and a cappellas from classic songs and my favorite emcees. And of course, I had to rap on one of the tracks myself, with my man Brian Jacobs on the hook.
So there it is, hip-hop fans, meet The White Stripes.
Fans of The White Stripes, meet hip-hop.
