Elijah Blake ‘Shadows & Diamonds’ (Album Stream)

A week ahead of its release on June 23rd, you can now stream Elijah Blake’s debut album, Shadows & Diamonds, below. I know I’ll find something I like on the singer’s debut especially with No I.D. and Salaam Remi amongst the producers too. DeJ Loaf, James Poyser, and more contribute as well.


Raekwon “Back Stabbers (Remix)”

TBT #17 takes it back to the 70s as the Chef rhymes fast over The O’Jays “Back Stabbers”. In fact, it’s not often that Raekwon raps this fast lately. On top of that, you may recognize the melody of the original in Elijah Blake’s single last year with Common: “X.O.X.” That drove me crazy until I realized the connection. Alas, good vibes to kick off your morning below.
