Vell 4 Short – Project Sore Thumb This is the debut project from Vell 4 Short. Hailing from West Oakland, California and currently residing on Mars with RPMG, this debut came in hot. Corny, ok maybe a little. This music is dope. Clean beats, fresh raps, tight hooks, real music. Check it out.

Jelani’s interesting excerpt about this track: In 3rd grade, my Pops took to me to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture up on 135th Street to listen to a dialogue between Professor Jack Salzman and Dr. Cornel West on the topic of race relations in America, particularly issues surrounding the Jewish and African-American […]

Jay Rock – Hood Gone Love feat. Kendrick Lamar Here is the newest single from Jay Rock’s debut album Follow Me Home. Assisted with a verse from Kendrick Lamar and production by Justice League.
