This week’s best tracks according to my Pandora.
Pharcyde – “She Said” off their 1995 album Labcabincalifornia
DMX – “Stop Being Greedy” from his debut album It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot
Oddisee – “Propa” some classic DMV hip hop, fresh! This is from Oddisee’s mixtape called Foot In the Door, mixed by DJ Jazzy Jeff.
“I’m on that DC shit,
Mumbo sauce, fried rice & that three piece shit
Brothers out here care about their appearance,
so they ain’t waitin’ for that pair of Airs to go on clearance”
Common – “I Used to Love H.E.R.” A fucking classic Hip Hop record, from Resurrection.
Black Star – “Astronomy” is super dope, and Blackstar is always underrated. From their only album (so far!) Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star.
Guru – “Revolutionist” A track I actually had never heard, always thankful for Guru showing up on Pandora. This is from his solo Baldhead Slick & Da Click album.
Mos Def – Mathematics. An upbeat and informative (as Mos usually is) track from his debut album, Black On Both Sides

The first in a new series of posts, dedicated to Pandora’s picks for my life throughout the week (or day!). I’m a Pandora One subscriber (about $36 a year with no ads, more track skipping and better audio quality) because I believe in what they’re doing – and don’t ever mind paying for music.
What you’ll find here, is super dope and sometimes obscure Hip Hop tracks you may not have heard in a while but will surely enjoy.
Mos Def – “Sex, Love & Money” off his The New Danger album.
Killah Priest – “One Step” off the ’98 album Heavy Mental. Produced by True Master.
The Roots – “Star / Pointro” off their fucking classic The Tipping Point album.
Wu Tang Clan – “Bells of War” from Wu-Tang Forever circa ’97.
Brand Nubian – “Probable Cause” from their ’98 album Foundation.
Surreal & The Sound Providers – “Just Gettin’ Started” from their super dope 2006 album True Indeed.
