This is dope. Jeff Staple is the founder/owner/bossman of Staple Design, Staple Clothing and the Reed Space in NYC. If you’re ever in the LES I highly suggest you check it out — I drop by just about every time I’m in the Big Apple. Anyhoo, 15 years ago Jeff Staple actually designed the artwork for one of my favorite Common singles ever, “1-9-9-9,” from the Soundbombing II compilation which dropped through Rawkus. Literally, I was probably banging that project/song on this exact day 15 years ago.
Here they reconnect to discuss Com’s career, his various projects and his latest masterpiece, Nobody’s Smiling, which is in stores and available online today. The question is, does Com remember working on that art with him or nah? Ha!

Nah, this isn’t a Young Buck sample — it’s the latest newbie from SUH-repper C. Rich. The ladies have Rich dizzy and seeing double, so he drowns his pain into the essence of various substances. But don’t get it twisted, he wasn’t confused in making this record — it’s nice.
What happens when you give Sir Michael Rocks a microphone and put him in NYC’s Rockefeller Plaza? Hilarious man on the street interviews conducted by Sir Mike, which Revolt TV has footage of. In the midst of polling random people on the importance of ‘banco popular’, Michael breaks down his debut LP and what it was like working with Too $hort.
Watch the full clip above. Banco is available for purchase on iTunes now.

As promised, Durk offers up the official video for “Fly High” featuring French Montana. This record was one of my favorites from Signed To The Streets 2, so I’m glad to see that it got the visual treatment.

Pivot’s John Walt is gearing up to release his new project, Dinner With John, and today, he drops off some new music. The smooth “I Know” features Lil Poppy and production from Pivot familia Saba.
It’s unclear whether this joint will make the cut for Dinner With John or not, but one thing’s for sure — you can find it directly below. I trust that you know what to do next.
Tia London’s out to make history and brings The Legendary Traxster with her on “Historical”, which was also produced by Traxster. While Tia touches on what it takes to be legendary, Trax runs through his history and place in Chicago hip hop with a solid closing verse.
This joint is too dope. Listen for yourself below.
