The Virtue :: ‘Patience’ From Kydd Jones

It’s nice to see cats step out of their comfort zone.  I’m sure Kydd Jones could just keep dropping bars and beats if he wanted to, but Patience shows us that he is willing to follow whatever direction his spirit moves him.  This video is getting all sorts of attention, so don’t be the last to get hip.

Radna, and a Kydd Jones track blessed by Anya.  You know the drill.. enjoy, download, share, and so on.

Dense Growth :: Lo Phi’s ‘For The Kids’

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I’m sure… there’s nothing liking watching an artist grow.  When you see an artist start at an already amazing point, and then you seem them struggling with feelings of mediocrity, it’s hard not to stroke the ego in a way that stunts their full potential.  Lo Phi is currently on a trajectory to fulfill his potential, and For The Kids is major proof of that.  Granted, I’ve only listened once, but I already know this is a record that demands my attention.  It’s a true journey, and one that can quite possibly leave you changed for the better when you arrive on the other side.  Worth your time.
