Champion Reqiuem. Probably my favorite song off of this album. "The New Danger" is the album time forgot, but I think it's Mos Def's most varied and creative album. I'm not so sure "The New Danger" is a classic, but it's getting heavy rotation right now. The album just resonates with me ...

Anyways, I think the lyrics in this song are on point! I know Yasiin Bey is going through some things in South Africa, but I hope he has at least one more album in him.

What are your favorite songs off "The New Danger?" Why?

Anderson .Paak is on to something. Very talented.

"Parking Lot" is my jam.

Shout out to the Ruler on becoming a U.S. citizen! His verse on Auditorium is a CLASSIC.

New to me... Why haven't I heard of Ratking?

So much great Hip-Hop, and none of it's on the radio...

Saul Williams is probably the important Hip Hop artist you've never heard of. This album isn't an easy listen, but that's true for all of Saul's albums. Saul's genius is expressed through his wordplay and observations on society. His latest album, MartyrLoserKing focuses primarily on society's fascination/obsession/dependence on the internet. We're more connected than ever, yet ever more isolated from those around us...

Standout tracks are 2-5, and 8-9. My personal favorite is Down For Some Ignorance/Roach Eggs.

You will NEVER hear this on the radio.

My first share. Not new music, but a bit obscure. This song just resonates with me. Roots killed it!

Probably my favorite artist in the game. Newly released Robert Glasper.
