Yet another installment in the: The Return of Good Music series. I so love DJ Premier. So versatile.
Plus Bun and Royce on a track together? Exciting times.

Spree Wilson's new EP, Evil Angel. I've had some of these songs for a minute, and posted one of my favs, "I Believe She's Lying" below. Download Evil Angel.

Alright, got hip to Freddie Gibbs a little late, but he hasn't come out of rotation since I caught wind of him (plus, he hails from the Midwest). I was telling a friend he's like a perfect blend of dope rappers-- Z-RO, Scarface with Rass Kass sensibilities.
Anyways, here he teams up with the homie Pill (check the story I did on him), and with great results. They both go HARD on this track. I've been saying this for the past few months, but real music is coming back.
From Rick Ross' phenomenally produced album (even cats who can't really rap like that are getting back to putting out good stuff), to J.Cole, Freddie Gibbs, Pill, Bobby Creekwater, Spree Wilson, Novel, Slaughterhouse... there's a lot of great stuff out right now, rap wise. Cue the hallelujah chorus.
