TSS Presents Better Late Than Never Vol. 1

By | 31 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/tss-presents-better-late-than-never-vol-1"> Time has a not-so-funny way of passing us by. As we, TSS Crew strive to give you our earnest and admittedly, unquestionable opinions on the albums of the day, sometimes even a couple projects slip through our impenetrable reviewing hands. Take a SXSW here and a couple trips to New York there, the missed calls begin to pile up. So as we enter the quarter of our Hip-Hop fiscal year, here's our chance to blow secondhand smoke on some of 2010's offerings. As always, there's <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/ratings">the good, the bad and the in-between</a>.

Aleon Craft – The Stargazing Soundtrack

By | 3 Comments

<a href="http://www.refinedhype.com/mixtapes/aleon-craft-stargazing/aleon-craft-the-stargazing-soundtrack.zip"> All aboard the SMKA space shuttle. Aleon Craft has crystal clear skies in his eyes as he blasts into orbit with Mick Boogie & Terry Urban for The Stargazing Soundtrack. With crew members such as Playboy Tre, Mikkey Halsted and several other literal ATLiens, to summarize this as simply a mixtape would be a crime. It's pure aeronautics. Atlanta, we have a problem. The Luke Skywalker/Issac Hayes hybrid of the game is about to get intergalatic on your arse. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/aleon-craft-feat-young-scolla-and-mikkey-halsted-brand-new-day"> Download -- <a href="http://www.refinedhype.com/mixtapes/aleon-craft-stargazing/aleon-craft-the-stargazing-soundtrack.zip">Aleon Craft - The Stargazing Soundtrack</a> As an extra, Aleon sat down with <a href="http://mauricegarland.blogspot.com/2010/08/aleon-craft-breaks-down-stargazing.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter">Maurice Garland</a> to break down Craft's new project.

If you wondered what happened to the Kentucky kinfolk Nappy Roots, then you're in luck because the boys of "Awnaw" fame will return with a new album The Humdinger, later next month.
