Friday Random/Genius Ten

I’m going to take a page from Amanda Marcotte, and begin using iTunes’ new “Genius” feature (which builds playlists based off a single song) for the Friday Random Ten (and I’m going to start doing this more often). I’ve also posted a different playlist at my blog, so you should check it out.

Original song: Del tha Funkee Homosapian – “Mistadoblina” from I Wish My Brother George Were Here

  1. Aesop Rock – “Daylight” from Labor Days
  2. Mos Def – “Hip Hop” from Black on Both Sides
  3. A Tribe Called Quest – “Electric Relaxation” from Midnight Maruaders
  4. Black Star – “Definition” from Black Star
  5. Blackalicious – “Make You Feel that Way” from Blazing Arrow
  6. Beastie Boys – “Root Down” from Ill Communication
  7. The Streets – “Has it Come to This?” from Original Pirate Material
  8. Ice Cube – “Steady Mobbin'” from Death Certificate
  9. Dead Prez – “It’s Bigger Than Hip-Hop” from Let’s Get Free
  10. The Roots – “The Next Movement” from Things Fall Apart
Bonus song: Cypress Hill – “How Could I Just Kill a Man?” from Cypress Hill
Bonus video: “Has it Come to This?”
– Jamelle

    “Has It Come to This” is one of my favorite songs by Skinner. That genius feature is pretty great. I wrote about it here a while ago, and I still use it every day at work.

    I need to get my iTunes game up to snuff. Apparently, I’m really slacking there. But “Electric Relaxation” … hell, “Midnight Marauders” as a whole was just genius. I miss the Tribe.
