Rhymefest Strikes Again...

Update: Fest explains the record here.
Somebody Buy Me This!
Attack of the Clones
Clones by The Roots.
this is one of my favorite Roots songs of all time. Dice Raw gives his best collabo verse, and this beat is pure fire. My favorite Roots album is Phrenology, but Illadelph Halflife comes reeeeal close, mostly because of this track. lead emcee, the under-appreciated Black Thought is in rare form, and like i said before, Dice Raw doesn't get any better than this! cop Illadelph Halflife any which way you can (like by clicking the pic on the left), but right now just take a few minutes to peep Clones!
Beats by the Page...
the sales pitch:
"This volume is all about the funky full-color illustrations featuring MAHFOOD's bizarre and unique characters, gorgeous girls, rock stars, b-boys, mexican wrestlers, beat bees, and more. A must-have for art lovers and MAHFOOD fans alike!"
son flipped the Billie Jean beat...
BILLIE JEAN THEME from Deep Rooted on Vimeo.

Heath Holds It Down for Dark Knight
Jamar Gets VIOLENT!!!
“…When Beacon Press approached me with the opportunity to do a graphic adaptation of Geoffrey Canada’s memoir Fist Stick Knife Gun: A Personal History of Violence in America" says Jamar, "I read his book and saw myself in its pages. I knew exactly what a young Geoff went through, growing up in an unforgiving South Bronx neighborhood in the 1960s. Never mind that his story took place 15 years before I was born, I felt instantly connected. This same story is repeated every day in every inner city in the country but with higher, deadlier stakes at earlier ages. The only difference is that I didn’t worry about getting shot when I was a kid - that’s not the case, nowadays.”
