Reflection Eternal in “Long Hot Summer”

The chilly autumn mornings and evenings seem to be upon us and once again it’s that time of year when we prepare for winter. If you look at this new Talib and Hi Tek video you wish that the summer lasted a little longer.
“Long Hot Summer” is from their latest RPM Album, released last summer.

PICNICTYME “The Wolfboy Collection”

We’re a bit late, but daymn, this tape is hot!
2 weeks ago PICNICTYME dropped his Wolfboy Collection.
We listened to it and after the second beat we were already starting to get dizzy from nodding our heads too much.
If you don’t believe me just listen and buy his album!

Mar “Single”

I already liked the original version of Single by Lil Wayne. I’m really glad that Mar chose this song for his Mar Variation. I can listen to this track all day.

Shigeto “And We’re Gonna Go” (Samiyam Chopsticks Rmx)

It’s always nice to hear from Samiyam. This is a remix he did for Shigeto’s new LP “Full Circle”.
