"The Recipe" is so good. Dre goes hard.

Dustin Harkins 06/10/12 12:34 PM

Got Frank Ocean tickets. Two of them. Time to get a lady.

Stoked for the Recipe video, one of my favorite jams this year, and that Frank Ocean record. I had no idea YMCMB had a group album or Usher had album tracks. One of those I'm stoked on, Ush already has my AOTY without some bonus tracks.

Lupe yessss!! And I'll have to get my hands on that GZA boxset. Hopefully it's a vinyl boxset

Edit: dammit. Just looked at the boxset article.

I would also like to add that Hit-Boy (the producer behind "N's in Paris" by Yeezy and Jay) has made his rapping debut this week. This track is called "Jay-Z Interview." The beat is by Blink. It's really good.
