And when it gets together dawg it sounds so nice
Ain't it right
Tell Mr. Jones
It ain't dead, it just came back home
Had to paint black poems
For a fake flat world
Tryin to take back rap
Like a lost black girl
While the whole world naps
in the sunshine showers
Sittin on hills counting down final hours
Think bout If I Rule The World
When I already got the power...
If you get a chance, checkout Dela's Atmosphere Airlines... ish is tight from top to bottom, no skippies on this album. It was released in 2007, so its a little older, but it is an A1 (Supastition, Blu, Kojoe, & J Live are absolutely sick on this album, the whole album is sick).
If you like progressive hip hop, this album is a must have for your collection...

Golden age hip hop:
Run-D.M.C.'s Raising Hell (1986), one of the most important releases from the golden age of hip hop.
The golden age of hip hop, derivative of old school hip hop, began with the popularity of Run-DMC's album Raising Hell in 1986 and ended with the popularity of G-Funk around 1993 .
It was characterized by ubiquitous soul, jazz and funk samples (à la James Brown and Curtis Mayfield) and Afrocentric lyrics . The golden age was based in New York City, and it was there that it gave rise to the careers of many of the most beloved rappers in hip-hop history.
The Juice Crew All-Stars, Rakim, KRS-ONE, and Chuck D are all thought to have played significant roles in advancing the artform of rap, upping the ante in terms of meaningful subject matter, witty wordplay, and effective verbal delivery.
Additionally, groups such as De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, and Leaders of the New School produced thoughtful recordings expressing conscientious understanding of the world around them, leading to the genre of conscious hip hop.
