Country Soul

Big K.R.I.T. finally releases his free Lp"Return of 4ever". This is in my opinion
will be one of the best lps of 2011. Its got
that old school UGK country swang with that
new school smooth Big K.R.I.T. soul. This
is a trip you will not regret taking.

OLD School Mondays

Wow we at the Academy have not done an "Old School Mondays" post in a good minute.
Well today is the glorious return of the ever
so timeless tradition. Today's pick is a funky band
called El Michels Affair. Thier '05 Lp
"Sounding Out The City" is one of the dopest jazz/funk
compilations I have ever heard. Its a kick of new school
smooth jazz, with some 70's funk and a little hip-hopflow
to keep it grovin. Its something you will want in your library
for those sunny days in the summer or when you feel like
 Sailing through friendly skies-

Stream Pusha T's Fear of God


It's finally here. After suffering from a few delays, Pusha T drops Fear of God today. It was worth the weight (pun intended). Ziploc P is on his lyrical hustle with original production and some freestyles over other beats. Track 1 through Track 13 keeps you anticipated more as we now wait for the album Long Live The Caine. Don't be afraid, the fear of God is great.

The Unexpected

The homie Dom Kennedy drops a new mixtape today without even given the masses a track to salivate for. The mixtape called "The Original Dom Kennedy" is filled with that classic Dom flow and songs like "The Homies" and "N***a 4 Life" bring the mixtape some instant heat. The mixtape rolls all the way through and even though it came outta nowhere, you'll be glad you copied it.

"There's no squares in my circle so you ain't gonna fit"
