Hip Hop Goodness from Oh Word

Hip Hop blog Oh Word has been posting mp3s zip style all week in their "50 Incredible Rap Songs You Need To Hear . . . Right Now" series.

Today, they posted a complete 50 song zip, with a 20 song bonus.

Check out Oh Word and enjoy the tasty goodness.

Hearing a well-curated mix is the best way to find new music.

I still treasure the mix cd my friend DC sent me a few years ago hipping me to all the great NY stuff from the mid 90s that he felt had escaped my attention. He was right.

A last year made a mix cd for friends at Home Slice entitled A's History of Hip Hop, which started with "The Message" and took the listener on a sonic journey through time and place (east coast, west coast, dirty dirty, Texas, etc.).

Here are a few gems from A's mix:

Mp3: DJ DMD f. Lil' Keke & Fat Pat, 25 Lighters.
Buy it here on iTunes.

Mp3: Goodie Mob f. OutKast, Cell Therapy.

Mp3: The Pharcyde, Passin' Me By.
Buy it here on iTunes.
