So having not picked any hip hop for a while, recently i have picked up quite a bit and have been playing through on the way to work. Plus I'm following on nicely from Aapie's post last night. Stand out is the latest from Washington DC rapper Odisee (great name). It appears the man is pretty damn prolific but i have to be honest and say i am pretty new to his stuff, but...
Aapie was born and grew up in London but now lives in Paris, France where he fails to fit in on a daily basis. He's been a somewhat mediocre DJ and club promoter for over 15 years and is curator of the Interesting Blends blog, as well as contributor to The Walk to Work. Dad, family man, avid collector of music - in that order.Twitter: @Interestblends
FourbearsJr lives on a small island in the Mediterranean, but before escaping to his own personal paradise he ran many club nights across many genres and times in many cities (mainly London), some of them successfully. He is a father and family man, a family who he regularly subjects to his opinionated selections (they have nowhere else to go).Twitter: @fourbearsjr
