2012 was a good year for the multi-talented Karriem Riggins, who, after more than a decade in music, released his debut solo album, Alone Together. Said record gets a mini-makeover today as some of the underground’s finest wordsworths, Krondon, Homeboy Sandman, Guilty Simpson and Jonwayne, as well as J Rocc who lends cuts, collide for the “Posse Cut” remix of the penultimate track, “Matador.” Good luck picking a winner for best verse here. Alone Together is out now on Stones Throw.

Greg Grease – “Forward”



If you’ve managed to get this far during the week, you probably deserve a break. And what good timing to introduce Greg Grease‘s latest video for “Forward”, a stripped down, less-is-more banger that doesn’t need to be overdramatic to get it’s point across. Directed by Adam Dunn as a part of his #LABB (Lights and a Backdrop) series, the visuals are as minimalistic as it gets, allowing the Grease, his DJ and his turntable to play centre stage. Check it out and be sure to pick up Greg Grease’s Black King Cole EP if you don’t already own it.
