Yuri Beats – All These Words ft. Chiddy

Friend of Xaphoon Jones and all around fire beat-maker Yuri Beats just dropped a beat tape today on his BandCamp, one featuring a guest vocal from Chiddy of Chiddy Bang. From top to bottom this tape is littered with gold, the first song Wayward Dream brings all sorts of funk with a great vocal sample and Freedom is one of my personal favorites. Be sure to check on the whole thing while I attempt to grab a download link for a couple of the tracks! Make sure you peep his Twitter (a great follow) and enjoy!

Hip-Hop – Nas – Black Girl Lost Pt. 2

A few days ago, Nas brought the second part to his classic “Black Girl Lost.” The follow up, “Another Black Girl Lost (Black Girl Lost Pt. 2)”, takes a completely different approach from the original. While Hip-Hop purist will be livid, the younger generation may actually take to this Hit-Boy produced version better.

Nas’s tenth album, Life Is Good, is due out later this year. Listen to and download “Another Black Girl Lost (Black Girl Lost Pt. 2)” below.
