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.

TiRon – Bernie Maac (ft. Ayomari, Ab-Soul)(prod by. Tiffany “T!FF” Gouche)

DOWNLOAD MP3 TiRon-BernieMacftAyomariAbSoul.mp3
Summary: This one is hard for me describe. All I can say is that the sample in the track is cool and the rap has style.
About Artist:  First I have to say that another TiRon & Ayomari track was featured on gregshiphop.com back in August 2009 with 3 Drink Minimum.  I still don’t know much about TiRon and Ayomari except that they are a duo out of cali and this will be the second song of there’s that I just love. Ab-Soul on the other hand is part of Kendrick Lamar’s collective Black Hippy.
About Song: This song is off of a mixtape for charity titled “The Cafeteria Line presents HNGRY” (<-check out the site!).
Favorite Part:   First I’ll pay good money to anyone who can tell me what is being sampled in this track. I’m also crazy about the integrity of the rap. Something about the verses are just so solid. The song just works for me I don’t know what else to say.
