Returning back to the fallow field of this blog after a healthy break; whaddaya whaddaya. naw’mean? I got some really great items today for you from Computer Jay, Blue Sky Black Death, Grayskul, F. Virtue and other whatnots. Let’s get into it shall we?
Computer Jay “Hardships” (feat. Orfeo)
Brand new Computer Jay from his 2nd in the “Savage Planet” series (available on 10″ soon, cop #1 HERE) after being the tour DJ for Pharcyde and Shafiq Husayn for many years, Jay has branched out into his own steeze building Moogodore 2600 keyboard (part Comodore 64, part Moog, part Atari 2600) for his live shows and just being all around futuristic. Had a chance to chop it up with him at SXSW this year at the Exploded Drawing party and I gotta say he was a real good dude. Check “Hardships” on MTVU HERE as well and help Jay get into the freshmen rotation!

F. Vitue – We Are Not The Shame
Fresh off his “Trill Cunningham” EP with BBAS producer J57, F. Virtue gives you an INCREDIBLY thoughtful album that say some much that needs to be said in hip-hop today. Not just standard ‘stop the violence’ or ‘bring it back the the roots’ but actual real stances and addressing issues that are important to him and should be important to you too. Peep the Anita Bryant video and you’ll see what I mean…
