Once in awhile some world wide music grows on me.Prime example the producer of this track Manu Chao.And that is the case with this great track by Smod.Bamako, Mali’s hip hop/acoustic trio SMOD are criminally slept on in the West, as is their 2010 self-titled third album. Nacional Records just announced plans to try to give the Manu Chao produced gem by giving it a proper North American release soon.

New track off Chicago trio Yourself and The Air excellent fourth EP Who’s Who In The Zoo that was released last week.
Yourself And The Air – Sick Days
Wasn’t quite sure about this track,it really grew on me though.Especially since Pusha added a verse.A guy I really try not to like cause his lyrics are a little too flashy for me.I can’t deny him sometimes though lol.G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T over Miguel’s “Sure Thing” track = A sure thing indeed.

Nice track featuring the always great William Cooper off Timbo King’s debut album, From Babylon To Timbuktu that dropped a few months ago from.Nature Sounds.I figured I’d post it cause it seemed to be criminally slept on.And it also just got visuals.Plus I just heard of it and am guilty of criminally sleeping on it.If you haven’t picked it up ,do yourself a favor and do so.
