This is an mp3 blog attempting to document the gross amount of music I listen to. About once a day, I'll post something I like. If you're a copyright holder on anything I host, get in touch, and we'll settle things in a steel cage instead of a courtroom.

Aceyalone and Rjd2

One of the best rap records I've heard this year is definitely Magnificent City, the collaboration between former Freestyle Fellowship member Aceyalone and production wunderkind Rjd2. This really was an ideal collaboration, two people are some of the best at what they do doing what they do best.

The production s typical Rjd2, but with more of a focus on hooks in addition to his soul samples and creepy atmospherics. Acey's also in top form, making every word that spills out of his mouth sound like it's off-the-cuff and brilliant, and he makes a case for being one of America's best MCs, up there with Common, Mos Def, and Boots Riley.

I decided to post the song "Caged Bird" because 1) it's the best song on the record, and 2) Jeremy's getting out of prison pretty soon, so this is kind of a celebration of that.
