#1 – A Bit Of Rap

While wasting some time on the internet the other day (house-hunting online just got boring) I came across some pretty cool bits and bobs. The Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture album came out about 5 years ago now but some of the tracks sounds as good now as they did then. The song Preservation with Aesop Rock and Del the Funky Homosapien fits in really well with the souly, rootsy kind of rap that I’ve been listening to quite a lot at the moment. K’naan, Zion I, The Roots, Amp Live (one half of Zion I) and Aloe Blacc are all in my recent plays. They all seem to be looking for obscure soul samples that they can fit into new beats and talk about their issues over the top of. I think it all works pretty well.
