Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 12

It has been a phenomenal week of music, especially Hip Hop.
J. Cole released some Soul via his Twitter this week. A sample from David Ruffin circa 1969 “Double Cross,” with some kicks, snares and lyrics that bring Hip Hop back down to earth.
Wiz dropped a free track via Twitter. Gorillaz enlisted 3 Stacks and James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) for a promotional track for Limited Edition Chucks. Rihanna and Chris Brown both buried the hatchet and hopped on each other’s remixes. Odd Future released a new single for the upcoming project The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2 due out March 20.
Nicki Minaj silenced the critics about being “soft” with her latest single. I highly doubt Sophia Grace’s mom will let here cover this one.
Santigold dropped a fantastic single this week with great instrumentation and another one of her addictive beats. The upcoming project Master Of My Make-Believe is expected May.
Chilled out productions from Ryan Tedder and Dot Da Genius for Bobby Ray and WizardCud.
