J Readi - Stakes Is High Freestyle

It's Rakim's nephew rapping over what some might argue is the best De La Soul beat of all time. What more can you ask for? Before you snidely reply, "Rakim rapping over that beat himself," click play and peep game at 1:20 in particular.

Muja Messiah - Saran Rap (prod. Roc Marciano)

You thought Roc Marciano only put out one project in 2017? Think again. On November 24, Man Bites Dog Records released Saran Rap, a six-song EP by Minneapolis MC Muja Messiah, produced entirely by Roc Marciano.

In addition to providing beat, Roc also features on the first track, "You Haven't Lived,"and appears in its video. Stream that and the EP both below, and click through Bandcamp to cop the vinyl pictured here, a limited edition of 150.

DJ Pr!nce - Blast into the Past pt. 2

DJ Prince kicked off a very productive 2017 with this old school mix, just the thing for heart-warming holiday celebration or grown-sexy New Year's gathering.
