Slang Rap Democracy

Bringing you all the freshness fit to link.

Jay Electronica vs. Pete Rock & CL Smooth

Jay Electronica pretty much sonned Diddy earlier today, then throws more salt in the wound by dropping a cut called “The Shiny Suit Theory” featuring Jay-Z and Charlotte Gainsbourg The-Dream. [Spotted at You Heard That New] | Mediafire

Call me vintage but I prefer Pete Rock’s speedier take on the flip of the sample—”Ain’t Got the Love (Of the One Girl on My Mind)” by Philly Soul group The Ambassadors—for his and CL Smooth’s “I Got A Love” from 1994’s The Main Ingredient.

VIDEO: Sean Price x Snow Pt. 2 x Converse

Sean Price gorillas Roc Marci’s “Snow” instrumental. Supposedly from “Snow Pt.2” That beat is a couple of years old but still sounds hard body. [Spotted at 2DopeBoyz via TheCrypt]

Below; Sean P, Donnis, Jay Eletronica and the homie Dan Solomito challenge reigning champ Jim Jones in Converse’s Band of Ballers tourney going down in the ATL on May 1. P-Body saying they’ll at least outrap every team is pretty much a given. P!!!

Moleskine Muses

Moleskine has been killing it with their latest releases, collaborations and super-exclusive notebooks. In an increasingly digital world, Moleskines’ notebooks are analog by nature—use one and you are physically writing, on paper—which is no doubt a reason for their popularity. I stay with a Moleskine (see pic above) and here are some releases from the last month I would gladly accept as a gift. Just saying.

Moleskine Passions Notebook Series

A collection of themed journals tailored for specific interests including music, film and wine. [Hypebeast]

Moleskine ‘MoMa Retrospective’ Tim Burton Notebook

Only way to get your hands on this special “MoMa Retrospective” notebook (a weekly planner) honoring Tim Burton’s was to be a MoMa VIP. **Must spend more time at the MoMa…** [Slam x Hype]

(capsule) x Moleskin Notebooks
Made only for (capsule) trade show exhibitors and members of its Advisory Board. (capsule) is a destination for esteemed designers and brands, but you don’t care, this notebook looks ill, and you want one. [High Snobiety]

Moleskine Color A Month Planner Set
January is a wrap but you still got February through December to use the rest of this set of Daily Planner notebooks. Gift box too. [Uncrate]

And lastly Jay Electronica’s “preview” video for “Dear Moleskine,” for obvious reasons.
