Summary: This song is so suave. It makes me smile big and brings out my inner hopeless romantic.
About Artist: Talib Kweli is a critically acclaimed rapper who’s been around the block. He makes up half of Blackstar along with Mos Def, and is a hip hop legend in his own right. Miguel is the red hot R&B singer who’s been on so many amazing tracks recently (more to come on the blog). Sean C & LV are a production duo from New York affiliated with Diddy.
About Song: This song is the third single off of Talib Kweli’s 5th studio album Prisoner of Conscious which was release in May 2013. The song to me sounds like it samples Marvin Gaye’s Mercy Mercy Me.
Favorite Part: I love the chorus of this song. Miguel sounds soooo good, and the hook just gets stuck in your head. Talib Kweli adds his own real talk rapping to this love song which makes it a truly complete song. This song spoke to me the moment I heard it for the first time.

DOWNLOAD MP3 TalibKweliZTrip-CongregationftBlackThoughtAbSoul.mp3
Summary: This track is the 2nd track I’m posting from an awesome mixtape called Attack The Block. Download Attack the Block Mixtape. While I like this song I’m putting up this post to represent the whole mixtape which I highly recommend.
About Artist:  Talib Kweli is an established very well respected artist in the game who is a member of Madlib and one half of Black Star with Mos Def. Z-Trip is a DJ who really blazed the trail of many mashup artists behind him. While not well known outside of the Hip Hop community he is respected as a DJ on the very top of his game. Black thought is of course one of the founding members and lyrical base for the The Roots. Ab-Soul really holds his own in this one but he is known mainly for being part of Kendrick Lamar’s rap group Black Hippy and part of the Top Dawg Entertainment crew.
About Song: This song is just one of the tracks off of this phenomenal mixtape.
Favorite Part:
I like the church inspired track but I also love the lyrics
Check out the Lyrics on Rap Genius
You really have to look at every line because unlike some ‘Hip Hop’ these verses have meaning.

Summary: This track is the intro track to an awesome mixtape byt the same name. Download Attack the Block Mixtape. While I like this song I’m putting up this post to represent the whole mixtape which I highly recommend.
About Artist:  Talib Kweli is an established very well respected artist in the game who is a member of Madlib and one half of Black Star with Mos Def.

About Song: This song is the intro off of the a mixtape by the same name and while I like this song you should download the mixtape. The beginning of the song plays a clip of british movie call Attack the Block about an alien invasion (awesome indie movie that I was lucky to see at my local independent movie theater). The song samples Dead Prez’s Hip Hop.
Favorite Part:   I love the quote from the movie at the very begining and of course Dead Prez’s Hip Hop is a great beat but to really appreciate this track you gotta just download the mixtape cause the songs are mixed together with great skill (Z-Trip’s skill I presume).

Other:
Other favorite track on this mixtape are Letter From The Government, Congregation, and Getting To The Money among others.
