If you’re in Japan, happy holiday. Enjoy your Monday off. To everybody else, here’s a playlist to help get you through. This week’s soundtrack has Rico Nasty showing off her diverse delivery, cadence, and unmatched confidence. Royce da 5′ 9″ separates himself from victims disguised as opportunists. In an interview below, Killer Mike talks about his new show Trigger Warning and black capitalism. Tina Snow is warming my heart with her icey performance on “WTF I Want.” Elzhi’s remake of the Nas, Pete Rock produced joint “It Ain’t Hard To Tell” is musically reappraised through live instrumentation. Elzhi’s album tribute Elmatic is way underrated too. There’s lots of goodies below. Dig in, stay warm.
