On Tuesday I found out I’m going to Paris. I’m very, very excited to have the opportunity. Soon after, I put the 2013 edition of the Lonely Plant travel guide to Paris on my Amazon wish list.
(If anyone reading this has ever been, please feel free to chat me up — I’d like to check a couple of record stores, rest my head some place fairly inexpensive, drink wine, do a few touristy things, get rained on just once, and meet that girl from Midnight in Paris. Thanks.)
Literally minutes later, Oddisee’s “Lonely Planet,” the first single to drop off of his upcoming instrumental project, The Beauty In All, hit the TECB inbox:
Today I was paid and I purchased the guide. So now here I am posting the song.
Mello Music Group held a summer sale last week and I scooped up Trophies (O.C. and Apollo Brown), finally, and Abrasions from Gensu Dean and P.A. Medallions. This is “Bar MitzVah” from Abrasions and it’s the perfect track that makes you want punch your neighbor just for signing for your UPS package. Fuck outta here with your niceness, my dude.
It took me a couple of weeks of going back and forth to this press release from Mello Music Group for me to come to the conclusion of really enjoying this Apollo Brown-produced joint from Has-Lo. Never heard too much from this cat before, but now I’m paying closer attention.
Back-to-back MMG posts for that hip-hop lovin’ ass. Uptown XO and AB the Pro link up on this grimy track. I fools with these dudes. This track is off of the Colour de Grey which you can find at your favorite digital media sales outlet, or hit up the Mello Music Group site for some physicals.
