'Brand New' Dwele and Fest

New streams from Dwele

He kind of got lumped in that neo-soul backalash (which I never agreed with). I like the term 'Neo-Soul'

But whatever, dude is nice and the new album should be hot.

a lil info on Dwele G from 'Lil' Kim Trick:

“Music is what I do and who I am,” he says. “It’s my release.”
While music has certainly transformed in the two years since 27-year-old Dwele stepped up to the plate with his debut, “Subject,” he’s made slight adjustment to his surroundings. Cornrows aligned, symmetric, and Midwest cool in full effect, there’s no denying that Dwele stays repping for the (313) – he’s just moved to downtown Detroit where he watches as the sun rises, and sets, over Lake Eerie. “Changing scenery offers you a different mood and energy for creating,” he admits. “If the sun is up and it’s hot in the loft, I’m coming with a hype song. But once the sun starts to go down, it’s a beautiful time to make music – baby-making music.”

Entitled simply, “Some Kinda,” Dwele’s sophomore collection is 13 songs deep including a few groove-infused interludes reminiscent of those he brought the first time around. Along with tapping into his own songwriting and producing talents on nine tracks, he enlisted the expertise of fellow writer/producers Mike City (Bilal, Sunshine Anderson, Dave Hollister), Jay Dee (of Slum Village fame) as well as G1 with whom he partnered on the first single from the last album

also have some streams from my new favorite MC, Rhymefest.
Saw him at Blvd. last week. Show was dope, but the 'too cool for school' industry crowd was too much. Standing there all night with the dummy look on their faces.
'Brand New' is the new single featuring the Louis Viton Don

I'm LOVIING the Dwele single.

> Best album covers of all time

A few rap ones to begin with off top (some of which I don't even really like much musically):

- Low End Theory - my favorite cover of all time.
- Cuban Linx
- Paid in Full - cheesy but iconic and evocative of the time of its release
- Ol' Dirty Bastard - Return to the 36 Chambers
- Misdeducation of Lauryn Hill
- De La Soul is Dead
- Black Star
- Mos Def - New Danger (so-so album to many but beautiful photography and imagery)
- EPMD - Business As Usual
- Redman - Dare iz a Darkside
- Eminem - The Eminem Show
