All City Chess Club consists of Featuring Loopy Tabasco, Asher Roth, Charles Hamilton, The Cool Kids, Blu, Diggy Simmons, B.o.B. and Dosage….or at least on this track.
The Roots just dropped a preliminary track list for their 9th studio album and it sure looks appetizing. The more Blu verses the better in my opinion. Four or five interludes are also expected to be added to the album but who really cares about interludes?
Look for the album to drop June 22nd via Def Jam.

Johnson & Jonson are releasing an all instrumental album version of their 2008 self titled album via iTunes on August 14th – with 3 bonus instrumentals one of which is above. This beat is insane!
Rapper Big Pooh – Rear View Mirror (prod. 9th Wonder) + Blu – LoveLine(s),DedicatedToLastFe’vrier (Prod. by Exile)
I wasn’t really aware how all this was going down but apparently Big Pooh (of Little Brother) has released his new album Delightful Bars: The Candy Apple Version is on iTunes and a physical copy drops May 5th. Well it’s nice to see Pooh back with perhaps one of my favorite producers of the last few years. 9th and Pooh come togetehr for a pretty nice track – I myself am very excited to check out the rest of this album.
Blu snipes Exile’s instrumental “Love Lines” from his breathtaking album Radio LP – which if you haven’t heard it’s an album of songs that are completley sampled from recordings Exile got from the radio. Anyway it’s always nice to see a new track from Blu especially with Exile on the beats.
