Greetings. Once again struggling to come up with a theme this week, I jacked this idea from a friend on Facebook: pick a song(s) with a beat that you would want to rhyme over in a cipher.
Consider this our Freestyle Friday, minus A.J., Free and Jin.
Once again, feel free to let us know what you’re listening to this week (Shani has warned against us getting too hip-hop heavy) or consider it something of an open thread:
1. Building Steam with a Grain of Salt – DJ Shadow (Jamelle)
2. Watch for the Hook – Cool Breeze featuring Outkast and Goodie Mob (G.D.)
3. iPod – Serengeti (Shani-o)
4. Thelonious – Common featuring Slum Village (Blackink)
5. The Funeral – Clipse (G.D.)
6. Don’t Mug Yourself – The Streets (Shani-o)
7. June 27 – DJ Screw (Blackink)
8. Young Fresh and New – Kelis (Shani-o)
9. I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby – Barry White (Blackink)
10. Midnight in a Perfect World – DJ Shadow (G.D)
“All About the Benjamins” or “Grindin'” would have also been acceptable.
Enjoy the weekend.
