Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 28

It’s Monday, June twenty-fifth, two thousand and twelve.

Lupe Fiasco sends out another deep message for the damsels in distress.

Purity Ring, the All-Canadian duo, has done it again with their second single. Beautifully produced with hooks that sound like they’re straight out of a 90’s R&B track and a futuristic beat.

Dom Kennedy dropped his highly anticipated Yellow Album which has been in heavy rotation.

Nas gears up for number ten, Pusha for number one, Wiz hooks up with fifty and JJ goes free.
