Recent Adds 2/10

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010


This is the series where we check terrestrial radio charts to see what independent records they have been adding to the playlist. The idea is that it will help shine some light on semi-significant songs that slip below the blogosphere. And figure out whose payolaing which payholes. But really it just amounts to me making fun of youtube clips.

Red Cafe – “Heart & Soul” (prod. by Pete Rock)

This is basically a regional rap record about New York City. Sure that’s not a first (Busta’s “New York Shit” comes to mind) but “Heart & Soul” is notable because it’s almost completely devoid of PLACE WHERE IT WAS BORN posturing. It just talks about the city and sounds like the city the same way, say, a Houston record would. It’s a great look for NYC. I guess Jada’s “New York Minute” would also fit in the same conversation except that song picked a minute from 2002 to focus on. Pete & Red are perfectly on their 1995 shit, which is probably a better year to be trapped in. Especially if you are trying to be an advocate for New York City. (via So Many Shrimp)
