Georgiavania and Funcrusher Plus

January 5, 2010

Georgiavania, the debut album by Willie Isz, came out in April of 2009. Willie Isz is a duo consisting of Khujo Mob, of Goodie Mob fame, and Jneiro Jarel. I really like this disc because it takes hip-hop into new directions while remaining grounded in a sort of Dirty South aesthetic. This innovative yet Real quality is what puts Georgiavania in the same category as Company Flow’s classic underground 1997 release, Funcrusher Plus. Funcrusher Plus, like Georgiavania, has the uncanny ability to transcend Earthly limitations and shoot straight into space while maintaining strong New York B-boy roots.

Check out the cover art and a sample track from both albums respectively.

If you like what you hear, go cop the albums or download them elsewhere cuz this ain’t that kind of blog, foo!

VIDEO: Don’t Block My Shine, Shawty

January 3, 2010

Okay so my lack of tech savviness is definitely holding me back with the blogging, but I’m learning fast so it’s all good.

I just saw the video for “Shine Blockas” by Big Boi featuring Gucci Mane. This is easily one of the dopest hip-hop tracks of 2009, so I’m gonna embed the video. I’m loving Big Boi chilling in the Wal-Mart at the beginning and Gucci’s absence actually adds to La Flare’s mystique. Is it just me or is being locked up at the height of his career actually doing something to stoke the hype flames? I still can’t tell whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.

Free Gucci!
