Lately this is the only album that I can listen to straight through. Sammus is a super smart gamer girl that produces and raps. Is this a nerd’s dream that’s comes true or what?!? Either way I’m glad that Sammus is out there making good music. The thing that got me hooked wasn’t just listening to M’Other Brain, but Sammus’Beatz. A whole beat tape that makes you feel like you’re in a video. I started having flashbacks to playing Super Mario Bros. M’Other Brain is very different from Beatz and rounds out this super nerd with mad rap skills. Check out Sammus and see what I’m talking about. Buy Sammus - M’Other Brain on Band Camp. BIG thanks to Sammus for bringing something good to the rap/producer table.
Nothing like a high energy video from J-Live to get your day going. Not much else to say, but play it again. After you get done watching the video, get down with the album, S.P.T.A. BIG thanks to J-Live for the heads up. Keep doing what you’re doing.
A friend of mine told me, “if a rapper has to curse every other word…they’re not a rapper.” John (JR) Robinson is a rapper for sure! The Gifted is one of those albums I can play with my mother in the car and she won’t give me that look like what are we listening to. Gifted has a laid back vibe that will still have your head nodding. John Robinson’s flow it clear, and said with care. I’m digging Gifted because of its comforting classic sound, but keeping it in the now. Download John Robinson – Gifted on Band Camp. Thank you Mr. John Robinson for tweeting about this one.

Cans and 7even Sun take Hip Hop from NY to France in 30 minutes and back again. Cans, from NY, linked up with French producer, 7even Sun to bring you some banging tracks. 420 Blowin will get you high just listening to it. The French Connection has that classic Hip Hop sound that makes it timeless. I was really feeling the French Connection from the get go, and still have it in rotation.

Time flies when you’re having fun, and the Boombox crew must be having a helluva time! It feels like just a few months ago we were celebrating their 3rd year. This time around to help celebrate Boombox’s 4th anniversary the guest host for the evening is Shawn Jackson. If you don’t know about Mr. Shawn Jackson check out his recent mixtape Hollywood Shuffle Side B and his LP Brand New Old Me. And guest selector Pete Rock. Do I need to say more about him? I’m sure you all know Pete Rock for one thing or another. He’ll be pulling tunes from his large library of music. It’s going to be a dope night. Always in the place to be Boombox’s resident DJs Inka One, Ben Diggin, and One Man Jazz. Picking great music from hip hop to latin grooves you’ll have a great time. Come on out and help celebrate another great year with the Boombox’s crew. BIG thanks to the Boombox crew Inka One, Ben Diggin, and One Man Jazzfor doing it BIG another year.
