New old shit from DJ J-Live – Do The Knowledge Mixtape” Vol. 1 (The Late Pass) The Best of 2009 Hip-Hop.
Basically, I got tired of hearing a lot of people say stuff like, “there’s nothing new out” or “hip hop is wack now”. Upon hearing this I usually run down a list of names of new artists and even old artists with new albums and ask if they’ve heard of’em. Nope! These people have no idea. There’s a lot of good new hip hop. You just have to do the knowledge and keep your ears open. These are some of my favorites from 2009 alone. Enjoy! – DJ J-Live
