quality hiphop from Uganda Greenthumbu



^^  Eh, I never knew Silvah Bullet had a local, longer history in the UK, I only heard his stuff via Jonny L back when.  Good recommendation Muttster.  I saw your original post on the tune. Digging the electro breaks vibes for sure, I used to spin that stuff - early breakstep, nu skool breaks & such.  Xyxthumbs  I still have a lot of those style of tunes on vinyl.  

Doc Scott killed this remix as well.  Smile



Listen, Questlove has been doing some CRAZY quarantine, local NYC, charity related dj sets over the past month, raising money for Covid-19 Food Hub NYC, which provides meals for students who need it during the craziness that is going on. You might want to check out The Roots youtube channel - some amazing sessions being broadcast for sure.

In depth, different themed sets, from Marvin Gaye, lovers rock, Prince productions & remixes, some 4 - 6 hrs long. YO.. plan your day around listening to the sets. I'm attempting to catch up for sure.
Hours, days of music to listen to.   Icon_yippee

Listening as I post, ALMOST 10 HOURS of Native Tongues affiliated tunes, commentary & history?  Thank you Questlove. 

Props on the cause.

As ever, Griselda doin it.

Westside Gunn, "Pray for Paris" lp, dropping today!  Collabs featuring Freddie Gibbs, Tyler the Creator, Roc Marciano, Conway the Machine, Joey Bad A$$, Benny the Butcher, and more.


DJ Premier and RZA battle it out for the golden era crown. They're known for the work they put in with their respective groups Gangstarr and Wutang Clan, but have also worked with artists such as Notorious BIG, Jay Z,  Christina Aguilera, Common, D'Angelo, Dr. Dre, Fat Joe, Game and more! Watch them go classic for classic making it extremely difficult for anyone to judge. In the end, it's a win for the culture! This is a #Verzuz battle brought to you by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland.
