It’s been a minute, but now I’m back in it. Truthfully, I went away from the compilation game for selfish reasons. If you’ve browsed around Blind I in the past year or so, you’ll know that I do my artistic thing. The deeper I got into my craft, I found myself with less & less time to check out new artists. But your hunger was strong for a staple that we’ve been known for since 2006, and we weren’t about to let that just drop so quickly. So I decided to smack myself in the face a few hundred times, sift through some of the wack new developments in this hip-hop shit, some of the over-saturated others, and give you guys a cool crop of fresh records encompassed in my NEW compilation continuation – Vanguard. So from here on out, only shit I’m fucking with in the flesh will make this comp. If it’s short, you know why. If you got dope shit, keep sending it. You too may very well be a part of the Vanguard moment in music. For my inaugural piece, I’ve got features from legends DJ Premier, Nas, Common, and The Roots…..some new-age heavyweights like Black Milk, Thom Yorke, DOOM, Pac Div, Asher Roth, Freddie Gibbs and Big K.R.I.T….and dope newcomers like Casey Veggies, YP, Rockie Fresh, Chance the Rapper, D2G, Vic Spencer, Schoolboy Q, ASAP Rocky, L.E.P. Bogus Boys, Mathien and yours truly. The future is now…partake!
They made this in the kitchen. Nah, really, they made this in the kitchen.
DEAD at this picture. Lupe Fiasco brings together some of the best new spitters to form the All-City Chess Club and do a proper remix to his joint “I’m Beaming“. All-City Chess Club is comprised of Lupe, Asher Roth, Charles Hamilton, The Cool Kids, Blu, Diggy, B.o.B. and Dosage. Pretty cool concept, partake!
All-City Chess Club – We’re Beaming
Chip Tha Ripper is one of my favorite new rappers out. Cats like him, Big K.R.I.T., Dom Kennedy, all know how to use their vocal inflections perfectly over the beats that they choose, and we all win because of it. Chip decided to drop “From Me To You“, a prelude to the Gift Raps album that he and Cool Kids’ producer Chuck Inglish collaborated on, which should be nuts as well. Until then, we’ve got 6 new tracks to hold us down until Gift Raps drops. Check out “Ain’t No Love” produced by Million $ Mano and then partake!
Chip Tha Ripper – Ain’t No Love
Tiron! I’m sorry I’m tardy to the party my dude, I didn’t get it in my inbox! This is the new mixtape from the homie TIRON in collaboration with Boyd and them over at Society. I’d been waiting awhile for this, that’s why I was hella salty when I saw it making the rounds on the net. Oh well, it’s still dope music and you should definitely grab this! Check out “The Richers” featuring Blu and Asher Roth and produced by Oddisee, and then you know what to do…PARTAKE!

Check out the visuals for “Childish Games” from the Cons‘ latest release, Movies On Demand. This one’s featuring Asher Roth. I always appreciated Cons’ skill to make conceptual tracks, it reminds me of why I fell in love with hip-hop! Partake!

T.I.’s Grand Hustle protege B.o.B. drops his new mixtape in association with DJ Drama x LRG as a pre-cursor to his Adventures of Bobby Ray album, slated to drop May 25th. Hence the name! If you haven’t checked out B.o.B. yet you’re in for a treat, as he’s got an ill diverse style and isn’t rapping about bullshit! Check out one of my favorites off the project, Fuck The Money featuring Asher Roth & produced by Kanye West. Partake!
