Pick of the Week (6/21/11)

Elzhi - ELmatic

Detroit landmark MC and former member of Slum Village, Elzhi's newest mixtape is almost too good. Even though paying homage to Nas' debut 1994 release Illmatic, this album is far from a copycat. I have to say that it is good to see he hasn't given up and left the hip hop scene after his release from Slum Village, as we can't afford to loose any more MC's of his caliber. Just the track "It Ain't Hard To Tell" makes this album a classic, with the added bonus that the album comes with 9 more songs just like.

DJ Pick

Lupe Fiasco - Food & Liquor

Four Grammy nominations and 5 years later, Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco's debut album is still a phenomenal listen. Diverse production, great lyricism and a unique sound put this album at the top of my list for breakout first albums. Hopefully with the upcoming release of Food & Liquor II Lupe will get back to his original sound.

Throwback Pick

Gang Starr - Full Clip: A Decade of Gang Starr

Released in 1999, this anthology of Guru and DJ Premier's 10 years and 5 albums is amazing. Everything you want or need from Gang Starr is on this album, plus some newly recorded and hard to find tracks. Baldhead Slick and Premo at their best.
