Blu & Exile – give me my flowers while i can smell them [LP]

Posted in Lifestyle, Music, random by Milk+Syrup on December 21, 2011

 The homie Blu releases an LP that he and Exile recorded in 2009! (give me my flowers while i can smell them). Something that I personally know is that Blu & Exile have tons more of unreleased material in a vault somewhere. If I knew where that vault was…it might be a burglary.






LxE For The Uncool – The Bleeding [demo] feat. Stephen King

Posted in Music, random, Uncategorized by Milk+Syrup on December 11, 2011

LxE has been in the process of creating a project (The Sun Sets Tomorrow…Regardless) that he self proclaims will be a “hip hop classic”. During his unique and creative writing process, he has many verses that he explains are “not fitting”. Here are the first bars that didn’t make the cut, but definitely can cause bleeding.

Power to Keyel!

Brother Blu drops a new joint produced by the legendary Pete Rock. I have always been a fan of how Blu utilizes drops in the beat, when he kills. iLL.

Ohio native, LxE For The Uncool released a very under the radar cassette style EP last Halloween titled The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street. This title comes from LxE’s obsession with Rod Serling’s The Twilight Zone. This year, he decides to re-release the project with a new track (Dragon Sea)The emcee also provides a visual for the opening track (OG Champion Hoodie (Raekwon Tribute)) which was directed by Walter Nini“Growing up, The Chef has always inspired me to think outside of the box when it came to rhyme schemes”.

LxE is currently finishing up a project & documentary entitled The Sun Sets Tomorrow…Regardless. This is believed to be released sometime this winter.

DJ Shadow “Scale It Back” f/ Yukimi Nagano (of Little Dragon)

Posted in Music, random, Women by Milk+Syrup on October 17, 2011

DJ Shadow releases an under the radar album entitled The Less You Know, The Better.  The name of the album is definitely fitting, simply because no one knew that he had dropped an album at all!  here is the haunting track titled Scale It Back, which features the scintillating Yukimi Nagano (Little Dragon). This is also the track that caught my attention to the under-promoted project. DJ Shadow’s The Less You Know, The Better has been instores since last Tuesday and also has appearances from Posdnous and Talib Kweli as well.

Erykah gives us a visual for a cut off of her  New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh album. The soular songstress also directed the video (props to Creative Control). Erykah Badu, in my opinion, has always been very artistic in her approach to music.
