Even Yelawolf wants to keep it old school right now. Check out his verses over the tracks for So Fresh, So Clean and Shook Ones.

[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.978750&w=425&h=350&fv=fake%3D1] Here are the originals (2 of the best duos of all time): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwD4gA7F_qk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cP0wsET8__Y  .

Cee Lo Green's singing is dope no doubt but remember when he used to be a rapper? Here's a reminder.

And here’s his latest (singing) video for his song called It’s OK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGe3GFWEO2I&feature=player_embedded.

The Bullits are not hip-hop…but Jay Electronica is…and he kicks a verse on their track called Close Your Eyes. Check out the video.

Another cool thing about The Bullits?  Lucy Liu (from Charlie’s Angels) is one of the members of the group and is on the vocals.  You can learn (a tiny bit)

Here's another hot one from 1982 (Statik Selektah and Termanology) ft Ghetto and Ea$y Money. This one's called Shut it Down (Virgin MegaStore Boys) ft Ghetto and Ea$y Money.

Statik Selektah’s track features a nice flip of one of Chante Moore’s quiet storm classics as one of the samples.  For more on 1982, including a free EP, click here.

Ever heard of Money Making Jam Boys? No? They are Black Thought's "new" side project, but keep it on the low… Check out their video for Judgment Day.

Money Making Jam Boys are Black Thought, Dice Raw, Truck North, P.O.R.N. and Philly.  Click here for a very comprehensive breakdown of the genesis and evolution of the group from

KiD CuDi seems a lot happier when he's perfoming. Maybe Mr. Rager is just for the studio. Check out his performance of REVOFEV on the Conan O'Brien Show.

It’s pretty dope that he’s wearing a Prince shirt too.Speaking of Prince, in the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, ?uestlove lists his top 10 favorite Prince songs of all

AZ is still putting in quality work 17 years after his killer cameo with Nas. Check out the video for the remake of Gimme Yours which was produced by Statik Selektah.

Statik Selektah has quietly become one of the hardest working producers in the game.  This is a good look for both him and AZ: .

Here's some bonus KiD CuDi. It's not included in the album but it fits right in. The video is called Mojo's So Dope (but I'm sure KiD CuDi was not inhaling…).

This one is produced by the cool kids over at Decon. If you have not heard KiD CuDi’s album, here’s a friendly nudge..

If you missed the 1982 album, it's one of the doper ones of the year (and that's saying a lot). They just released a free EP bonus album. Check it out.

In case you missed it, 1982 is the group formed by Statik Selektah and Termanology.  Here are some previous posts about them to give you a taste.  These are 2

Ice Cube's new song Nothing Like L.A. is nothing like his vintage joints from the 80's and 90's but I'm not mad at it.

Check out the performance from the George Lopez show: Need more Cube in your life?  Here’s something old: And something (relatively) new to show you the big homie’s still got

People Under the Stairs created an underground classic with their 2002 album titled O.S.T. They have some other bangers since then and their latest video is an ode to beer called Beer…it's deeper than that though. Peep the legacy.

Props for the Laverne and Shirley spoof in the beginning. If you’re not up on People Under the Stairs, they are West Coast retro backpackers.  They’re rhymes are all about

Are you wondering why in the hell The Joy wasn't included on Kanye's album? Pete Rock has the answer (and you're gonna like it).

The mighty Pete Rock talks about working with Kanye on The Joy (arguably the best of the G.O.O.D. Friday gifts).  He also reveals that the track will be included on

You may remember Reek Da Villain from BET's Hip-Hop Awards Cypher. Money is ill. Check out Mechanics (the remix) ft Busta Rhymes and Swizz Beatz

The fact that he’s riding the track that Method Man crushed on Bring the Pain just makes it more ill.Here’s Meth’s joint: And, the original track was called I’m Your

With no G.O.O.D. Friday (or Saturday) it's been a slow weekend in hip-hip. Here are some blasts from the past that you may not have heard in a minute to help get you to Monday.

Speaking of G.O.O.D. Friday, what do you think happened?  Kanye promised new music each Friday through Christmas.  Do you think it had something to do with his album leaking, the

Need some more Dr. Dre in your life? Check out this behind the scenes footage from the making of the video for Kush.

The audio is mostly Kush playing (not a bad thing) interspersed with some brief commentary from 50, Dre and some true G’s…Check it out: http://www.vimeo.com/17018095.

Jay-Z has been on a massive promo tour for the launch of Decoded. If you've seen one interview you've seen them all. This Bloomberg piece is a little different. It's a look at Jay through the eyes of some of his most powerful friends and influences. Check it out.

The video is the latest episode of Bloomberg’s Game Changers series which has featured people like Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page and Sergey Brin (the founders of Google) and Steve Jobs. 

Imagine if Souls of Mischief had done gangsta rap. Hmm…it probably would have sounded something like Ridin' and Smokin' by Fashawn ft Night and Dirty Money. Check this out.

I actually think these cats were truly inspired by Souls of Mischief.  Peep the flow in ’93 Til Infinity and check out the close up panoramic solo shots in the

Diggy Simmons is reppin' Queens HARD. This time he does it with a freestyle over Mobb Deep's classic Shook Ones.

This kid is about to blow. Diggy Simmons- {Shook Ones Freestyle} from philthegod. on Vimeo. The Bridge is on a whole different level with this one.  Here’s Shook Ones by

B.o.B. has been on some Rock/Pop ish with Nothin' On You, Airplanes and Don't Let Me Fall, the 3 singles from his album. His back in Beastmode with is new single from his upcoming mixtape and he SPITS. Check it out.

We talked about his range a couple of days ago.  This is the other side.  It’s from his upcoming mixtape aptly called No Genre which is dropping on 12/7/10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vvuLAl99ec&feature=player_embedded.

Saigon has been on a tear lately. Check out the video for Strength/Great (beats supplied by Just Blaze)

The Foodchain are a lot like Little Brother, from the deep dirty funky basslines to the singing on the hooks. Check out Reverse Psychology and see if you agree. Even if you're not feeling the comparison it's still funky…

According to Nahright.com, these dudes recently signed with Statik Selektah. Hating the Little Brother comparison?  Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49EPf3Ds80I.

B.o.B. is a true artist. VERY few rappers can rock a mic and a guitar. Check out the video for Don't Let Me fall, his latest contribution to the culture.

A friend told me about B.o.B. 2 years ago.  He had some crunk mixtapes out that were very different than the music on his album and I wasn’t feeling it. 

If you like N.E.R.D. you'll like this interview of them from HardKnockTV where they break down their new album, Nothing.

Interested in what's on Nicki Minaj's mind? Check out this interview. The visual is kinda crazy but the audio is pretty insightful.

Looks like somebody didn’t come to the station all barbied up.  It’s all good though.  She discusses Wayne, Eminem, Kanye, Drake and much more. http://www.vimeo.com/16802119.

Rihanna and Drake have some real chemistry in the video for What's My Name. Hmm…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0CGsw6h60k&feature=player_embedded.

Kanye West is flawed (like the rest of us) and he just might be the realest dude in entertainment. If you haven't seen the much discussed interview with Matt Lauer, check it out.

What do you think?  Did Matt set Kanye up or is Kanye overreacting.  Perhaps his sensitivity also had something to do with the fact that his album had just leaked…

DOM Kennedy had me at the Les Nubians sample. The fact that he has a dope song and video is just icing. Check out Locals Only. Music lovers get ready.

Here are the Les Nubians sample and their classic joint, Makeda: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22HL5ZOOHGI.

Here's a double dose of N.E.R.D. videos–God Bless Us All and Life as a Fish.

Speaking of freestyles, guest writer BIG MITCH recently sent some jewels our way. Check out these vintage DMX clips and imagine what could have been…

I think its time we remember the old school heads who if they could get their sh*t together would still rule the hip hop world.  I think we have all

Big Remo's Go Ladies is a soulful Southern track produced by 9th Wonder.

Very different from this song also called Go Ladies, but still dope. .
