The first official single from Big Boi’s upcoming album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors is in.  “Mama Told Me” is a funky track produced by The Flush Music and features Kelly Rowland on the chorus.  As always, General Patton laces the track with sharp wit and boastful wordplay: “Living legend, rap scholar, art major/Cuz I make major art, like Beethoven, Van Gogh or Mozart, so don’t start.”  I dig it, but I can’t lie.  I prefer the version with Yukimi and Little Dragon.  You can implement your own compare/contrast methods after the cut.



I can always go for a good mashup and a funky refix.  Brought to us by DJ J. Period and Oakland duo Zion I, Little Dragon’s “Ritual Union” gets a bomb ass, dub-plate makeover.  Fittingly so, J. Period and Zion I have teamed up to drop Bomb First, a mixtape to precede the Oct. 2 release of Zion I’s Shadowboxing.  The refix to Little Dragon’s smash hit maintains the quirkiness of the original while the Cali duo infuse it with their own brand of high energy.

One of my favorite tracks from Ritual Union.  The new video for “Crystalfilm” has a slight creep factor but it’s an interesting take nonetheless.

Little Dragon returns with the eccentric visuals for their track “Crystalfilm”, from their 2011 release Ritual Union. Directed by Daniel Wirtberg, the video conjures up an intense, visually provocative dream sequence. Little Dragon is good for keeping ish fresh and strangely innovative.  (via Jay Force)
