/Tracks: Elzhi – It Ain’t Hard to Tell

Former Slum Village rapper Elzhi just released his new music video for “It Ain’t Hard to Tell,” a tribute to Nas, and one done incredibly well.  Strong rhymes, good use of old Michael Jackson samples, and some great directing by Michael Castelaz, this song is the early favorite for Cut of the Summer.  Also, with … Continue reading

Los Alguiens - El Internet

It’s never satisfying to post something after I’ve seen it on College Humor, but this video doesn’t even have 100,000 Youtube views at the time of this posting, and I have a feeling it could explode in the next week or so. Part of what we do here at CC is try to be early … Continue reading

Seattle-native Knowmads can drop a line like fishing.  River Runs Deep is this hip-hop duo’s most popular song on Youtube.  Here’s that vid: And here’s an ill live version of the same song: I first got turned onto Knowmads over Christmas 2010, and I think they’re sick.  Definitely one of my favorite musical ensembles out … Continue reading
