Just A Stone's Throw Away

"Green card wack MCs that talk foreign" - Guilty Simpson

So ever since I listened to Madlib's new album. I've been bumping that, Ode to The Ghetto, The Shining, Jay Loves Japan, Champion Sound, Liberation, Madvillany and other ish from Stones Throw fam. But finally I think I've reach the full appreciation of their music. The more I examine I see that they have abstract but unique flows over some absolute amazing production. Raw Shit by Jaylib featuring Talib Kweli is some epic shit. Honestly I'm shocked that I don't hear that much about Champion Sound. The Shining has always been a long time favorite. Individual tracks are those tracks from Donuts that MF Doom, Guilty, Ghost, Tip & Kweli jumped on. Sniper Elite/Murder Goons is a great mix. Maybe all this is in preparation to the new MF Doom album supposely coming out later this month. Hopefully but not looking too good but anyway I hope we get some more Stones Throw before the year closes out. Supposedly Guilty Simpson & Madlib got a EP coming out called O.J. Simpson (OJ = Otis Jackson = Madlib). So I'll go back to listening to my Stones collection and enjoy...

Your girl don't wanna lie she's gonna get on a niggaz dick
Turn it up, y'all niggaz must be outta ya head
If your system ain't up to the red

Good post. One correction: Jay Loves Japan isn't on Stones Throw, it's a bootleg. Peace.

It's all dope stuff. I've been playing Champion Sound in my ride every day for a month now. McNasty FIlth.... Raw Shit is crazy. Guilty has one of the best flows around and Madlib knows how to make those JAMS with everybody.

Look out for OJ Simpson, Liberation and a bunch of others I'm forgetting. They're all stepping up game and bring that creative shit outta each other and it's real dope.
