Whodini “Runnin’ ‘Em” (1996): Hip Hop pioneers Whodini come correct on this mid 90’s track. I always thought the instrumental had been supplied by Easy Mo Bee (Jermaine Dupri is credited as the producer in the liner notes, the group being signed to So So Def back then).
Isaiah Rider vs Patrick Ewing: best block ever?
Square One - Hundred Percent (100%) (2002): Square One was one of the best Hip Hop crews from Germany and interestingly their entire body of work was performed in English. Great melodic instrumental and cuts on this one, enjoy.
Money Boss Players “Walk With The Limp” (1996): feeling the melancholic instrumental … but “Money Boss Players” was a terrible name (sorry had to say it).
Heather B. “I Get Wreck” (1992): feeling that bass-heavy instrumental. Wondering if people still say “catching/getting wreck” …. probably not.
Sebutones “To Mock A Killingbird” (1997): yet another hip hop track sampling the “Carrie” movie soundtrack, but it is one of the best.
Street Smartz “Don’t Trust Anyone” (1997): Buckwild on the beat, enjoy.
Gene Flo ”Current Events” (2013): San Diego-based producer Gene Flo’s latest offering features introspective melodies and pounding drums. Interesting work, reminds me somewhat of DJ Shadow circa 1996.

J. Force’s Guide To Hidden Rock Song Messages: Producer/emcee J-Force schools us on hidden, sometimes satanistic hidden messages in Rock records. This was fairly entertaining.
Qwel & Maker - Long Walkers (2013): this was sent sent to me through email. Q and M are an emcee / dj-producer duo hailing from the Chicago area. Really feeling this rock-influenced track. Don’t hesitate to visit their website. http://www.qwelandmaker.com/
