The Cathedral – Javotti Media
Talib Kweli (@talibkweli) has been tweeting about this mixtape for a minute and today he made it available.
The Cathedral features his stable of artists under the Javotti Media (@javottimedia) banner and features RES (@the1res), Niko Is (@nikohigh) – whose Good Blood mixtape was featured yesterday, Cory Mo (@corymomusic) and K’Valentine (@thekvalentine). (via Soundcloud)
Cynthia’s Son – Inspectah Deck
This new mixtape from Inspectah Deck (@inspectahdeckwu) can ride the wave of excitement surrounding the upcoming release of A Better Tomorrow.
Packed with 19 new tracks – with the bulk of production from Deck himself – there’s little to no Wu participation and this is a good thing.
His production and rhymes are in grand form and allow him to stand as a solo artist.
Guest features are sparse with most of them coming in production credits.
Moss, Phantom Of The Beats and Bronze Nazareth are the most recognizable.
This nod to 70s soul and 90s boom bap could easily be an official release with some knob twiddling from The RZA (and some expensive sample clearance).
Go see ’bout Cynthia’s progeny here.(via DatPiff)
