oh no

As if Stereotype, the Statik Selektah-scored album from one of the West Coast’s best kept secrets, Strong Arm Steady, wasn’t worthy of burn in the stereo, fellow Stones Throw alumnus, Oh No, has got his hands on the bulk of the record. Remixing and reducing it, Madlib’s lil bro has birthed Stereo Jr., and like you aren’t already clambering over to the Stones Throw store to order a copy, allow the glitchy refix of “No Sky Limit,” also featuring Dom Kennedy, to provide the necessary persuasion.

West Coast rap trio Strong Arm Steady introduce (or re-introduce, for the most part) us to all things they consider classic with their latest music video.

He may have just released 2012, the collaborative album alongside Termanology (under the 1982 duo), back in May, but Statik Selektah is hard at work on another project. Linking up with West Coast mainstays Mitchy Slick, Phil the Agony and KRNDN, a.k.a. Strong Arm Steady, the DJ has a new LP in the pipelines entitled Stereotype, and today, we have the first taste with “Fair Fight”. Fellow Californians Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and ScHoolboy Q (yup, “Where’s Kendrick Lamar!?” was our first thought, too) jump on this funky, clunky number. Stereotype is due out August 14th, and is available to pre-order now via 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.
