Jay Electronica x Michael Jackson

I made this because i have loved Michael Jackson all of my life. All of my memories from about 5 years old or so (which is about as far back as i remember with some ease) can be tied to or associated with or landmarked by some musical contribution of Michael Jackson at that time. From then, all the way to now. He is a dark fingerprint on a very large part of who I am and who most of the people I know personally are. And thats why i posted this picture along with this song. The response to this song is amazing, and overwhelming and i appreciate all of the love and support it is recieving from everywhere. And i dedicate all of this positive energy toward a Great Hero of mine (although not perfect) who has performed many miracles in his physical life and who has and will be for many moons continue to be a glowing light in the dark for those who see something better inside of themselves and have the will and desire to pursue it. Evolution. May our good works be recorded and duplicated, and may our sins be recorded and forgiven. Amen

- Jay Electroncia

Also, here's the CDQ version of the Reflection Eternal track I posted a few days ago. I guess they'll be calling it "Just Begun". Enjoy

Team Teamwork | The Ocarina of Rhyme

Gamers rejoice, Team Teamwork (some group out of Massachusetts supposedly) put together 11 tracks of music from Zelda: Ocarina of Time mashed up nicely with some classic rap. Creative I must say. Who knew Zelda mixed with hip hop just works? Stumbled on it the other day. Probably pretty late on this one, but ah who cares? I love their use of some familiar drum breaks, most notably in track 3 with that Paul Simon sample (Common - Forever Begins). Good stuff.

“These Leftovers would have passed for a fresh cooked meal if you didn’t know better. It’s raw, uncut, unmastered, fresh from the studio and ready for your ears. No DJs, just eLZhi and his comrades, your speakers and you. Without the Leftovers UnMixedtape, most of these songs would never have seen the light of day, so consider this a gift, and come get your grub on!”
