Raekwon – A Rainy Day
It’s not “Rainy Dayz 2″ but it works regardless. Actually, let’s just avoid any rap part two’s not involving Mobb Deep.

A new sure shot from the I Dot U Dot. That hook is just too ill…

Sean Price, Billy Danze, Maffew Ragazino and DJ Babu – Land of the Crooks
It’s been a good week for Australian producer M-Phazes, who not only got a co-production credit on the new Eminem LP but also snagged BK brawlers Sean Price, Billy Danze and Maffew Ragazino on the same track, while DJ Babu seals the deal with a def-defying display of zigga-zigga wizardry.

Holy shit…Kenny Parker finally got around to ripping some of those old tapes of KRS-One rapping over breakbeats courtesy of DJ Scott La Rock and Kool DJ Red Alert , as he told us about back in 2006. While there was no sign of the one with the dog barking over Kris’ verse, there’s an incredible ‘La Di Da Di’ style track which I’ve never heard before that will make your year. Shouts out to the Frozen Files crew over at East Village Radio for making this happen.
