This playlist looks good. Not had a chance to listen yet but a quick glance and it looks class.

Guys I stumbled across this absolute banger from 2006 on Spotify and now can’t stop playing it.

I also find myself singing the main hook... which could be problematic :D

probably my fave tune off one of my top 3 hip hop albums ever. it's ridiculous. neptunes gave clipse all the best, weirdest beats back then.

The production on that is nuts.

Not feeling it as a track though. Shit flow. Shit lyrics. Shoulda left is a dub.

Ride Around Shinin' is my fave production on the album, and one of my all time fave beats. I still don't understand how something can sound so ethereal, suspended and forceful all at the same time.

Clipse were *so* fucking good for 2 albums and a couple of mixtapes. And I strongly disagree with the otherwise mighty titchjuicy - neptunes found their most creative and leftfield home with clipse, and i'm always down for twisty turny fronting coke-rap. One of the few albums I know all the lyrics to by heart.

Oh man, I have to listen to Clipse all day now.

Anyone else come across the Manchester group, Children of Zeus?

A tweet about them caught my eye yesterday and i've been listening to their 2018 album Travel Light this morning.

It's great! Part sweet blissed out soul, part hip hop. They do both really well. The soul part especially. Hard to think of a better UK soul act since Soul II Soul.

Guys, I ain’t being funny, but I had never heard this absolute BANGER until this week!

The album totally passed me by back in 2016. But fuck me, what a tune!

I've just moved into a new house with loads more space, so there's room for all the CDs again. It's years since they saw the light of day and i've rediscovered the 1st Soundbombing Comp. It's an early Rawkus label showcase and features a lot of early Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Company Flow etc.

This track is up there with anything any of them have done since

Just seen Gift of Gab from Blackalicious has died. Probably the best MC I've ever seen live. Real shame.

It's been a while but I finally reconnected with A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory and I am thoroughly enjoying it.

It's just flawless isn't it. It's either that or Liquid Swords as my hip hop #1 depending on mood.
