I've finally got myself a scanner so you might see changes to some older posts where I'll upload the tape covers where possible. I'm also trying to re-up any dead links so if you've requested one the be patient, its coming!
Further to my post a few weeks back, it doesnt look like theres going to be any let up regarding shows in London. Although Rakim cancelled (who saw that coming?), Pharaoahe Monch tore it up on Monday night, AZ is town tonight, KRS is on saturday alongside Buckshot, Mad Lion and Freddie Foxx no less (which is where I'll be!) and Black Milk is at Jazz Cafe in a few weeks.

This Pete Rock produced track was one of my favourites of 2009 but I only discovered this video for it last night. I got the impression that the song was kind of slept on and seeing as its 9/11 and all I thought I'd post it up for all the NY heads that check the blog.
Even if you dont usually check for Red Cafe I'd still highly recommend this - great song, great video!
