The other night, Ron Artest took an unnecessary three when it would have made much more sense to wait down the shot clock. Fans booed, but a moment later, an unfazed Artest charged to the basket and hit a game winning shot at the buzzer. In the post game interview..

Black Milk – Don Cornelius.

(image) I’m trying to see how I could combine hip hop with like a fucking Beatles sound, on some rock, but not too rock. Beatles shit, but hip hop. I did the funk, the soul, niggas did that, so now I gotta do this but it gotta be right, I..

Blu – JustToPerfect (produced by Exile).

With no explanation, Blu shared this track with Exile where he moans about his beloved over what sounds like some 1950s Chordettes era shit. I could see Blu angrily adjusting the antenna on his brand new color television to this. of Needless to say, it’s awesome. Download: Blu – JustToPerfect..

Madvillain – Papermill.

“Papermill,” the first single from the new Madvillain album, clocks in at 1:45, but that’s enough of time for Madlib and Doom to shit on lesser hip-hoppers’ careers. Madlib pulls out a funky guitar loop from God knows where and Doom raps in puzzling non sequiturs. Download: Madvillain – Papermill..

Royce Da 5’9″ – My Own Planet (ft. Big Sean, Mr. Porter).

Mr. Porter assists Royce the rapping machine on a futuristic, but souled out gem off the deluxe edition of Street Hop. A lot of artists now are using special edition re-releases to get a second swipe at the apple on store shelves. Download: Royce Da 5’9″ – My Own Planet..
