Detroit’s Invincible, one of the best MC’s you’ve been ignoring just dropped her debut album Shapeshifters.

The album, which is available directly from Invincible’s own independent website and imprint, will surprise many who continue to pigeon-hole female or political hip-hop. If nothing else, this is good music. Invincible approaches every subject, flow and concept with a focused intensity that is missing from most music period. andres reyes

Paul Pre Mai Mix (RightMouseclick, Save As)



The first single from the upcoming PPP album features new vocalist Karma Stewart on an infectious horn-driven Motown-flavored joint called “On a Cloud.” The super-soulful gospel-tinged mix is an energetic starting point that represents the new and bigger sound of PPP. As a bonus, that track is remixed by San Francisco Bay Area producer Trackademicks, a member of the Honor Roll production crew who have been moving heads and dance floors with mixes and music for the likes of J*Davey, Phonte, and Josie Stingray that blur the lines between hip hop, soul, electro and techno. On the flip is “Angel,” featuring vocalist Coultrain, that also draws on PPPs Detroit roots, but this time it’s the cosmic-rock of Funkadelic that provides inspiration.

PPP recently announced a round of live dates during the summer of 2008 at which they will perform brand new music from their forthcoming album, Abundance. Expect new tracks, and new faces, and most of all, a celebration. To be released on Ubiquity Records in October 2008, the Abundance album will be preempted by singles through the summer. Their debut album, Triple P, brought worldwide notoriety to the Detroit-based production crew and their global collective of like-minded edgy-beat makers and soulful collaborators. Abundance marks the arrival of PPP as a band. They have developed a new sound that’s even bigger, and an album that’s more dynamic and organic than their first.

“Abundance sums up everything; our growth since Triple P, the love and encouragement to make this record that we’ve gotten from our fans, it means a lot of things,” explains band-leader and producer Waajeed. “It picks up where the first left- off. Triple P was a great start, but this sophomore album is on another level. It’s more involved and focused … it’s Electro Soul!”

Since the release of Triple P, Waajeed and production partner Saadiq moved from Detroit to Brooklyn. And while Brooklyn-life may have changed their sound, it’s also made them appreciate their Motor City roots which
are audible throughout the album, the majority of which was mixed in Detroit by Grammy award winning engineer Todd Fairall. Ubiquity

Kanye shows us that his album budget is waaaayy too big! He has 2 new video’s alternate video’s out for the single Flashing Lights with our man Dwele, mad artistic dope ass quality shots, not no bullshit handycam youtube video’s. So here check ‘m out!


This is dope, but it gets hilarious soon as Ali Shaheed mentions Dilla.  Again, I don’t want to add to all the dick riding that’s already going on with Dilla, but the man was something special.  I do however like that they mentioned a number of incredible artists before getting to Dilla that I feel like a lot of today’s generation forget about.  Some cats just be on some Dilla only type shit.  That’s craaaazzzyyy!  I mean, dude was the truth, no doubt, but music is so incredibly vast.  There is SO much good music out there…    sorry….  I get sidetracked easily.

Long live the TRIBE!  God I hope they come correct.  Not just the show, but any music they start putting out there again. Omer Saar @ Universoul
