DON’T SLEEP: Jean Grae “U & Me & Everyone We Know” (Intro prod. by Jean Grae, prod. by M-Phazes) [SINGLE]

I’ve been playing this on repeat for the past 3 days, keeping the same tab open forever and eating up valuable memory on Firefox (look asshats, I’ll use Safari when my book is finally done and I get a MacBook Pro!). I figured I should probably post it up already. Salute to Run Run Shaw on the intro (old Hip Hop producer nerdery) and the Beat Fanatic fam M Phazes on the beat. This shit is type ill. Don’t sleep…

DON’T SLEEP: Jean Grae “Casebasket” (prod. by Boogie Blind) [SINGLE]

Jean Grae. I luh her. I’d have her baby. Between her post song adlibs on “So What, I Don’t Care” and “Casebasket” I’m pretty much in tears. Shout out to the homie DJ Boogie Blind on the beat! This jawn is bonkers (not the short lived candy from the 80’s or the short lived Disney cartoon from the 90’s, either). “Cookies Or Comas” drops June 23rd, 2011. Gird your fuckin’ loins…
