New Track: Gonjasufi – “EATFISH” ft. Blu + MP3


How can one not love the eerie hazy radness that is Gonjasufi? Just listen to his new tune with Blu set upon a track that sounds like theme music to a tricked out Eastern prayer. And now, obviously, you’re looking forward to The Ninth Inning free EP that comes out on October 24th like we are. Yeah, duh. You’re welcome.

New Track: The Roots – “Make My” ft. Big K.R.I.T. + Album


The Roots have recently announced a new album to release on December 6th, undun. The work will be conceptual and take form of “an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999).” Questlove says of the project, “at this point in our career we’d like for our work to have a unifying theme, and an experiential quality.” We can most certainly dig that.

Also with the announcement came a new track entitled “Make My,” featuring none other than southern gentleman Big K.R.I.T.. It’s a sleepy and melodic yet catchy tune. Stream below.
