  1. Frank Nitt's Stadium Music is better than most of those. #cosIsaysoooo

  2. the Masta Ace/MF Doom album ain't out yet..

  3. What about "Kolexxxion" from DJ Premier & Bumpy Knuckles - that shit is fire!

  4. Voli - The Wall Sampler is the best mixtape i've heard this year

  5. Stoned immaculate???

  6. That KA album is my pick so far but the new Alchemist has been on repeat since it leaked. But still, the KA shit has real staying power, it gets better and better every listen.
