Atmosphere – My Best Half

Outta nowhere comes a brand new Atmosphere song. We all have a better half, it’s just that some of them are absolutely insane for one week out of each month. All we want is some love and in return we just get the big piece of chicken. Peep the new joint and happy and healthy New Years to all of you. –Philaflava

Looking forward to Wood’s new album.
While we’re here, lets mention that in 2015 Armand Hammer >>>>>>>> Cannibal Ox. Woods and Elusive use the established legacy of streetwise avant garde NY rap as a starting point and then build and expand outward from it, while Can Ox struggle to even meet the benchmarks they set themselves with the Cold Vein.

They discuss things like Aesop Rock, Kate Upton, New York Knicks, Tree, Derek Jeter, Necro  andof course the demise of Def Jux. Check it out and stayed tuned for some more interviews dropping every Tuesdays on

I’m enjoying this more as a kungfu movie fan than an Aesop Rock fan (admittedly, I’m not a huge Aesop Rock fan.) There’s some delicious ironing in Aesop Rock’s video fitting more to people’s (misguided) expectations of RZA’s movie than the actual trailer for RZA’s movie.

Lol at everybody that praised mediocre boombap in their half-year lists but completely ignored Hail Mary Mallon’s Are You Gonna Eat That?

Hail Mary Mallon (Aesop Rock + Rob Sonic + DJ Big Wiz) – Table Talk

I realize everybody has some very important teenage angst to pour over this week, and that’s all good and worthwhile, but you should really check out Hail Mary Mallon’s Are You Gonna Eat That too. It’s a lot more fun. Aesop and Rob Sonic make for a great combination, there is an obvious rapport between the two. Both seem to sacrifice a tiny bit of their individual eccentricities to work better in tandem. As a result they actually sound like a group as opposed to two people sharing the same record (this is most evident on the numerous back-and-forth verses). The album is also refreshingly free of outsider involvement, there are no guest features, even the production is aptly handled by the group members themselves. And it all sounds very original, there isn’t really anything else out right now that I could compare it to. It’s just really good and very very entertaining. You should go get it.

This particular song is my favorite at the moment, but there are many others that I could use to show the album’s considerable merits.
