Pete Philly & Perquisite – Mind.State (2006)

For those of you who peeped Mystery Repeats when I dropped it a few months back, here’s the album’s predecessor. As always Pete & Perquisite brilliantly mix hip-hop & jazz so well they give acts like The Roots & Digable Planets a run for their money and although never quite as grimy as The Roots or as chill as the DPs, Pete Philly & Perquisite deliver us an album that hip-hop lovers and jazz fans alike can vibe too. If you like it buy it here.

The Roots Rising Down Loosies & Video

I was brought up on The Roots so it goes without saying I’m a huge fan and can’t wait for Rising Down (yes I’ll actually buy it) If you’re fiending for the follow-up to Game Theory as much as I am, I’m here to provide you with temporary relief. Here are 4 tracks (sorry, not the greatest quality) from the new roots album as well as the music video to a song which was unexplicably cut . Rising Down is slated to drop on the 29th of this month so hopefully these’ll last you until then.

Panacea’s Ink Is My Drink & A Proper Introduction

My user title says checktherime, but I go by many other things… Breeze, Breezilla, Breezus, Breezeus, Breezuno, Queen B etc. and my main purpose behind starting this blog was to get that good shit out

to the masses. I decided to enlist a few other heads from all over the place to help me out with this site,

there’s  DMXXX from Estonia and Chesbomb from NY (I’m from AL by the way… big surprise I know).

Anyway, we’re here to promote good hip hop music from now until the rest of forever so if you have a request or something that we should make the subject of one of our posts leave a comment. On the subject of good hip hop here’s the 2006 album by one of the dopest groups I’ve heard in a while, Panacea from Washington D.C. These cats are some The Roots/Crown City Rockers type vibe so give ’em a listen.
