A strong set from the team of Defari and DJ Babu of the Dilated Peoples! It's certainly no secret that our favorite hip hop is still built from soul and funk beats, and if you haven't figured it out from the Likwit's logo, a tribute to the mighty JBs, that's the kind of game they play! Defari's vocals complement Babu's beats so well that it's a wonder that this is their first LP as a team! Another treat from Cali! Tracks include "L.J.'s Anthem", "One Day Away", "The Hop", "Salute", "Change", "Strength In Numbers" with Phil Da Agony & Evidence, "Keep Doin' It", "Brother" and more! CD
Three nice ones from the always-dope Tommy Tee. "What's Your Name?" features Nice & Smooth, with their best cut in a while, almost reminding us of the classics on their first lp. "Lethal Dosage" features Souls Of Mischief. "Above Da Law" features Ruck, 8-Off/Agallah, Starang Wondah, Labba, & Big Twan. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Modern mic legend Talib Kweli delivers once again – with busy, brilliant rhymes and diverse production backdrop – and appearances by guitarist Gary Clark Jr, Big KRIT, Raekwon, Abby Dobson, The Underachievers and more. Kweli has been killing mics since the 90s, and much to our appreciation he's still sounds like a hungry young gun after all these years – and proudly carrying the torch for mic centric hip hop. Includes "Inner Monologue", the standout "Demonology" with Big KRIT & Gary Clark Jr, "State Of Grace" feat Abby Dobson, "Violations" feat Raekwon, "New Leaders" feat The Underachievers, "The Wormhole", "What's Real" feat RES, "Art Imitates Life" feat Black Thought, Rah Digga and Albe Back, "Lover's Peak" and "Colors Of You" feat Mike Posner.
