    Crazy how popular No Life Shaq is on YouTube. His videos are funny though.

    Hello, fam. If you want some low key, work from home beats today, forum fave Amerigo Gazaway has released a tribute to D'Angelo which is kind of like aural valium:

    https://amerigo.bandcamp.com/album/variations-of-voodoo-a-tribute-to-dangelo-instrumentals

    (hes been pumping out a lot of content recently and has pretty much been my soundtrack to this lockdown).

    Love this. I've heard it a bunch of time over the past few months but always forget the name of the track. Finally found out what it's called.

    @Bichii In the same vein, I recently found Questlove streaming a DJ set late every night while in Lockdown on Twitch/Youtube/IG. https://twitch.tv/Therootscrew

    Edit: Ah, Twitch dont have the previous VODs, but you already found them on the yootoobs:

    God damn the roots and R.T.J. are amazing. I've been going through their catalogues a few times this week. I've seen the roots twice at the forum but never seen R.T.J., I need to correct that next time they are in town.

    I think my favourite albums are rtj2 and phrenology.

    @Bichii The Roots have SO many good albums. Iím not sure I could pick one favourite but itíd be from Do You Want More, Illadelph Halflife, Things Fall Apart, Tipping Point and How I Got Over.

    @Dazimus rising down is another personal favourite. Only one I can think of I don't like,but was very highly regarded critically, is undun. The production was so boring to me.



    Rtj best ever live? Damn I definitely need to keep an eye of concert dates then. The roots were amazing live and after the show it went on until about 1am with a two hour questlove old skool DJ set.

    Killer is indeed awesome.

    Critics wanna mention that they miss when Hip Hop was rappiní/ Motherfucker if you did then Killer Mike would be platinum.

    Love Mike's last album.

    Turned off the Four Owls within 20 seconds 😂 I really canít do with British accents rapping, it just sounds so shit.

    The only one Iíve really liked has been Trauma 74ís ďAcceptable CitizensĒ album released a week or two ago. No dodgy accents, nice beats and a nice flow.

    This is quite old now, but I came across this live band version of my favourite Dizzee Rascal song, and it's pretty cool.

    Here's a great soundcloud page for you. In particular I imagine nickthegun and kalel will probably enjoy these

    https://soundcloud.com/wax-poetics

    There are a whole bunch of 20th anniversary album mixes, where the original sample tunes are mixed in with tunes from the albums

    So far this morning I've made my way through Reasonable Doubt and Ready To Die, and I'm on Main Ingredient now. Really good stuff.
