How’s this for the last post of 2010? Every artist has a vault of unreleased material; rarities, remixes, and alternate versions that never saw the light of day for one reason or another. This week, Mark Ronson used the holidays as an excuse to excavate some music from his hard..

Here are some more names from Huntsville, Alabama’s Slow Motion Soundz collective that you should be checking for. Who knew there was such an epic track waiting in the words “I’m doing good?” From O’Third’s upcoming Family Ties mixtape. Download: O’Third – I’m Doin Good (ft. J-Ova, Junebug) (produced by..

Here’s the album highlight from MURS & 9th Wonder’s otherwise lackluster Fornever. Murray updated Common’s classic allegorical record with references to hip-hop’s more recent missteps. Oops I just spoiled the allegory. And where the hell is his album with Terrace Martin? “Time is Now” and “Doing Me” are undeniable bangers...
