Jaylib – Champion Sound [Reissue](2007) RE-UPPED

So the story goes. Once upon a time in the land of hip hop legendary producer of the Beat Junkies, DJ J Rocc, passed a CD of beats to Madvillain maestro, Madlib. Were these beats J Roccs we may have ended up with a Roclib album, but as the story goes, these beats were (for some reason or another)  produced by none other than Jay Dee (aka J. Dilla). Madlib recorded over these beats and called the recordings Jaylib, but the recordings sat on a shelf getting dusty for a few years until Stones Throw put one of the tracks on a mixtape. Dilla, being signed to Stones Throw himself, heard the track, hooked up with Madlib and soon after began trading beats and rhymes (each did his own recording in his own respective hood) which lead to the 2003 release of Champion Sound. The album was hailed an instant classic and prototype for many hip-hop mashups to come after it (Madvillainy, Gnarls Barkley, Patch Adams, Dangerdoom etc.), but when Dilla passed away in early 2006 the album was re-vamped with a second CD of new remixes and instrumentals from the original album featured as well as a tribute to Dilla (“One For Dilla”). So here you are, the finished product of two of hip-hop’s greatest minds. Download the album and if you like it, cop it legit here.

2 Sene Albums + 1 EP

So I posted one joint by this cat a minute a good minute ago (Pavement Special) and expressed my amazement about how such a young cat could release such a dope album, but now it gets crazier as dude has release 3 more works… all just as crazy as the first. I know it’s a lot to listen to, so if you don’t know where to start peep his first work (link given above) or if picking out of the 3 new joints check on The Beautifully Ugly EP (2008), after which either of the other two albums Anywhere But Here (2007) and Elevator Music: A Collection of Rejected Excellence (2008) is a dope follow up. For fans of Raks One, Blu (of Blu & Exile), Buff 1 & Now On… fuck just do yourself and whoever you are, give dude a listen.

(Question: I know Elevetaor Music: A Collection of Rejected Excellence is being given away for free on Sene’s myspace page, and Pavement Special was a Japan only release, but does anybody know where the others can be copped legit as physical copies)?

Raks One – For Good (2005) & A Breath Of Fresh Air (2006)

I mentioned this dude a while back in my post of Sene’s Pavement Special. Not unlike the previously mentioned MC, Raks (aka Emilio Rojas) is easily dismissed for those who judge MCs based on appearance alone. I would go on to tell you how A Breath of Fresh Air is one of ’06’s hidden gems or how For Good is a great freshman joint, but I won’t. Peep the video, if you enjoy it download the albums and if you enjoy the albums buy em (A Breath of Fresh Air is the best IMO).

Sene – Pavement Special (2007)

I originally checked this cat out because I heard he was doing a joint with Blu to be released later this year (under the name Patch Adams). The dude has this entire Raks One look going on where you can just look at dude and tell he spits shit on the same note as Aaron Carter, but when you listen you’re blown away. One of my favorite albums in a while. Not one bad track on the album, great production and such. Only disappointing thing about the album is that I can’t find a physical copy of it anywhere. Check out dude’s biography on last.fm, very interesting shit, especially when you get to just how old dude is. Don’t sleep on this (it’s an EAC).
