} TBE Digest 10 – 5.29.10 [Hip Hop Roundup!! + Arcade Fire, Mystery Jets, Hot Hot Heat, …]

Another batch of new tracks for y’all. New Arcade Fire has the blogosphere creaming itself and a bunch of other new jams from old bands. It’s been over a year since my last (and first) Hip-Hop Roundup and since I had a bunch of hip-hop(esque) jams accumulating I figured it was high time to unload ’em on you. Anyway, most of the tracks here I am down with so it’s a rather upbeat Digest! Get to it!

For more jams or by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!

♫ Mystery Jets – Flash a Hungry Smile – The band behind one of my favorite albums of 2008 are back with this kazoo laced jam that while good, isn’t as great as I know they are capable of. I’m waiting for Read more

Santigold and Terry Urban are pretty sure You’ll Find A Way, Player

Santigold – You’ll Find A Way Player (Ft. Andre 3000 & Bun B)

If you have never seen Santigold before, don’t worry, that’s not her. That is my main goblin Lil’ Wayne lookin as sexy/blazed as ever. Santigold, however, was at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday night and not-coincidentally, so was I. Was her set awesome? Well, let’s just say she opened with her part from Major Lazer’s “Hold The Line” and it was fire and heat from there. Good thing Terry Urban made this Santi-basd mixtape to make a  segue into something relevant… Terry Urban is no noob to the mixtape game and it shows in this seamless mashup of Santi’s debut and Terry’s favorite rappers from the dirty-dirty. There has been some controversy about the mix but who cares about that? Download the full mixtape below or sample here. Andre 3000 is apparently always genius and Rick Ross is apparenty always hustin’ so start there for some raw nasty.

BONUS: Basement Jaxx – Saga (ft. Santigold)

You know we love Basement Jaxx, now hear Santigold rip her shizzle on this new ska-tinged Basement Jamm from their upcoming Scars. This is not better than “Raindrops,” “Hold The Line” or even “Gifted” but it’s still fun.
