One of my favourite records from the latest Ghostface Killah album, which solidifies why he is one of the most consistent members of Wu-Tang and one of the best to ever do it, period. Listen to the album here, it's a breath of fresh air.

CARIBOU - Home

After a five year hiatus under his Caribou moniker, Dan Snaith returns with a stunning piece of music entitled 'Home'. Sampling the amazing Gloria Barnes, he says: "I’m always listening to lots of music and sometimes a loop just jumps out at me – it’s too perfect. That’s how it was with Gloria Barnes’ ‘Home’ – I kept returning to it, meaning to do something with it but not knowing what. It wasn’t until the circumstances of someone close to me mirrored the refrain of the original song that the track all came together.” Gloria only ever released one album called 'Uptown', which is super rare and currently going for £2,000 on Discogs. Amazing music never grows old... This is a dope refresh, make sure you check out Illa J's version from 2017.

CJ Fly - Rudebwoy (Feat. Joey Bada$$)

CJ Fly and Joey Bada$$ are (still) two of the most exciting names in Hip-Hop for me right now, so to hear them together on a Statik Selektah beat like this is a breath of fresh air... Joey's verse in particular is straight fire on this. Keeping that Native Tongues vibe ALIVE and kicking!

Gang Starr - Family & Loyalty (Feat. J.Cole)

Sometimes music has the ability to make your heart smile... 'Family & Loyalty' is one of those moments. Hearing the voice of Guru on a Preemo beat in 2019, along with one of J.Cole's best verses in years, is something special. Real hip-hop music forever.

Common - Leaders (Crib Love) (Feat. A-Trak)
