Have we had Mike Ladd's Nostalgialator yet?
Yeah, it's from a good few years back now, but around the same time as this other UK outfit who also seemed to release one great album then disappear:
Less wellknown to old people like me, but seems well known in the states, from last year, an unexpected collab with trap rapper Freddie Gibbs with production from Madlib...drug-dealing gangsta lyrics over digging soul breaks - it really works - Freddie's earlier material is on that trap beat stuff which just depresses me, but this is interesting
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Piñata
hearing this for the first time and feeling it
A Tribe Called Quest - The Lost Demos (FULL ALBUM) - bootleg!
First 63% is great, runs out of steam by the end
The first Brand Nubian album...Puba and Sadat seem young ...1990....got a great funky 1990 flavour on the instrumentals...Friday music
Spoiler: full album video
A classic. Far superior version of the title track was on the B side of We Get Fowl though.
Just rediscovered this finest example of word salad fuckery in my old youtube likes.
Dr. Syntax has just dropped a new one, I'll blast it in the general direction of my aural orifices at some point and report back. Oh and Rodney P has too. I've always been more into UK hip-hop than US.
Rass Kass - Soul On ice (Full album playlist)
This guy was deep and clever
Give Noah23 a look into ska invita
E2a: Bollox, just realised Disjecta already mentioned him. Ah well, worth a second mention.
And fwiw this is the album (playlist) Disjecta mentioned.

Album Playlist for (The Brotherhood - Elementalz)
They were a UK group around in the 90s
I gave this a download - thanks for the tip, really interesting listen. A few showstoppers on there. Unusual mix of political/conscious and then kinda blunted/drunk g funk stuff. Looks like hes been really prolific over the years. This year he released something called Soul on Ice 2 btw! I've never read Soul On Ice...important book in its time by all accounts...I wonder how it reads today
