Free Man in Paris

Shoutout to the homie Kokayi who just got back from rocking Paris with Pharoahe Monch and Jean Grae, ably assisted by DC fam Zo!, Jon Laine, Ezra, naturalaw-dp, and Quartermaine. Seems like a fitting time to share a rare joint I often reach for when on my Kokayi stannery soapbox. This live recording of Joni Mitchell’s […]

The Vibe Conductor 2010 Hot List

Child Rebel Soldier – “Don’t Stop” I wasn’t paying much attention to Good Fridays until this dropped like an anvil on my skull. Kanye and Lupe body their verses. Pharrell’s verse is forgettable but he’s redeemed by the production.

Better Late Than Never: Hot Joints of 2007

I’m increasingly known for an eclectic DJ’ing style and a crotchedy nature about the state of hip-hop so after reflecting on this past year I’m really surprised that most of my favorite tunes of 2007 are hip-hop cuts. I guess things aren’t so bad and there is a place for you if you choose not […]
