T.R.O.Y. Presents – Sounds Like The 90s Vol. 24

We create these Sounds Like The 90s, to share with you new(er) tunes, that we feel represent that 90s hip-hop we love. Listen with an open mind and most importantly, support the artists featured on these Sounds Like The 90s if you like what you hear. 24 is a great number, my favorite number for obvious reasons, so it only made sense to incorporate my childhood idol Rickey Henderson on the cover. Props to dirt_dog for always blessing the artwork. And if you’re a fan of his work, you’ll be happy to know our Certified Dope Apparel is back for a limited time as well. Peace to to all those who continue to support Philaflava, Steady Bloggin and of course, T.R.O.Y.   –Jason Gloss

Follow us on Instagram @Philaflava if you’re feeling nostalgic.
Stay tuned for the return of The Philaflava Show, as we bring you Take It Personal radio dropping this fall.

Slow down Alchemist, I’m still not done with Israeli Salad….. Nah I’m kidding, the more instrumentals he puts out the better.


STREAM: Alchemist – Israeli Salad (Instrumental Album)

OF COURSE this drops just days after I finished the FACT instrumental list. Alchemist has been one of my favorite producers in the last few years, and I really wanted to include him on the list but none of the candidates made it through my overly-anal selection process. Rapper’s Best Friend series features beats that are great for rapping but sound a little plain on their own, Russian Roulette has too much rap to count as an instrumental project, The Good Book was alright but didn’t reflect his recent output in the way that I hoped. Judging by the cover and what I’ve heard so far, Israeli Salad will turn out to be the one I was looking for – the one that just unleashes a flood of all the weird old psychedelia he’s been sampling.

Another successful union of an Alchemist beat and raps so cold they make your teeth hurt.

I’m expecting nothing but murderous excellence from Giftz recent signing to Gibbs’ ESGN.

Poot! Gotta love Wire regulars making random cameos in rap videos.
Who knows what the new Mobb Deep album will bring, but at least we’ll always have Prodigy’s two excellent albums with Alchemist to remember his twilight years by. Well that and his all-caps blog posts.
