Kind of an unexpected collabo?  Whatever, this track gets the big cosign from me.  Can the Cool Kids do no wrong?  I’m diggin’ the Carps as well here – from their EP, Waves & Shambles, dropping on April 8th.

Chicago’s “Starving Artist” and blogosphere favorite, Bless 1, just hit me with some unreleased material from an abandoned project he’d been working on, pairing Bless with some of his favorite producers. The first of these tracks is the J.Dilla produced “The World”.

If you missed my last post on Bless 1, you can download a copy of his most recent album, Starving Artist, for free here. Bless has some exciting projects coming in the near future so stay tuned for those.
