I’ve had mixed feelings about Salva’s previous work with rappers, but this one really hit home as a great homage to classic West Coast rap. The last minute is a full-on tribute to the Chronic.
 

 
Taken from Salva’s Peacemaker album, available for download HERE.

Apropos The Game Of Thrones Mixtape, Here Be A 4 HRSMN Song

I’m sure Catch The Throne is gonna deliver it’s share of hilarity (it already kinda there). But due to its existence, I feel the need to remember The Four Horsemen (4 HRSMN).
 
Rightly forgotten by most, 4 HRSMN were a super group consisting of Canibus, Killah Priest, Kurupt, Ras Kass. If you didn’t live through the glory days of late 90s-early 00s underground rap, you probably won’t understand why this seemed like a good idea circa 98-ish. For the purposes of this post, all you need to know is that their song ‘The Horsemen’ (above) is already the top contender for the greatest medieval/fantasy themed rap song of all time. Rap Genius has a transcript of the song’s lyrics, it’s predictably inaccurate but close enough to give you a proper idea of why I hold it such high regard. Daddy Yankee is going to have to strain really hard on those Gasolina:Dragon Fire metaphors to top Canibus’ campaign plan of marching on France.

Flying Lotus – Hide me ft. Shabazz Palaces

I can’t blame people for jizzing all over the Kanye remix with Thundercat, but is a dream collabo in its own right and deserves to be singled out as well. If only it was longer… and was a full album. We’re overdue for a new Shabazz Palaces album too btw, there was supposed to be one this year. Maybe they’ll Beyonce it
