My apologies for the continued lack of posts. As I said before, up until thursday at 11am last week I was getting academically rapedd. And then proceeding to solely heal the wounds with proficient celebration...
Anyways, let's get into it.
The LA label Stones Throw (founded by Peanut Butter Wolf) has been doing their fucking thaang since '96. From Dilla, Doom, Madlib, Guilty Simpson, and Oh No to Mayer Hawthorne, James Pants and Dam-Funk, Stones Throw easily has been and still is one of the most influential and diverse labels in the game. And supplied me with so many bangersss
This dude has been on the scene for a while but he hit gold with his recent hit I Need A Dollar. Sounds like it could have been made in '73 it was picked up for the theme song of HBO's show How To Make It In America. This shit will stay in your head for days. SO DOPE.
>Link: I Need A Dollar- Aloe Blacc
And of course, here's a hip hop version (it was only a matter of time) of I Need A Dollar this dude named Marky did with it if that's your preference. Why it's called rasta monsta i have no clue.

I think my boyee Evan originally put me on to this dude with his hit, Just Ain't Gonna Work Out. Another song that will stay in your head for days and sounds like it's from the seventies. Dude's got a killer voice, he sounds like a black soul singer. But he's instead a shrimpy white dude.
Play this for your significant other right before you change your fb relationship status.......

And here's a cover he did of Stones Throw artist James Pants' song Thin Moon. I like this version better though.. shhh... chilll buzzzz

THE ROOTS PAY RESPECT TO DILLA
Firstly, if for some reason you don't know who Dilla I suggest you get on your mo fucking wikipedia game asap as possible. In a great act of musicianship, The Roots payed tribute to the late producer with the Dilla-Joints Mixtape covering some of his greatest hits. If you like this check out stones throw's Yesterday's News Quintet.
And thank god I got this shit last week when I did, these low key jams make great study music.
