There are a lot of good hip hop albums coming out in the next few weeks. I’m about to be broke buying all this music!
I know…it’s weird to hear that people still buy music these days, but I like to show my support for the independent artists (or those who are in the mainstream, but are still very different from most of the other artists you hear on the radio).
Don’t get it twisted though, I’ll bootleg the hell out of a Jay-Z or Kanye album — they already have enough money.
9/18: Brother Ali “Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color”
9/25: Lupe Fiasco “Food & Liquor 2” and Murs & Fashawn “This Generation”
10/2: Bambu “…One Rifle Per Family”
10/9: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis “The Heist”
10/16: Dumbfoundead “Take the Stares”
I’ll write in more detail later and will also have photos/videos to share, but I just got home from watching one of my favorite MCs, Brother Ali, rock with a live band in Santa Monica tonight. I really look up to him as an artist, so it was dope to finally get to see him perform live. I’m extremely tired and sleepy right now, but I’m also really inspired.
Gotta keep dreaming, gotta keep working…
