Music Monday - BADBADNOTGOOD, Ghostface Killah, Drake, Kendrick Lamar

This week we are serving up a veritable music feast including an album stream of BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah's Sour Soul, Kendrick Lamar's The Blacker The Berry and Drake's short film "Jungle".

BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah - Sour Soul (Album Stream)
The collaborative relationship between Canadian jazz three-piece BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah began in the summer of last year with the ALIFE project and now they have teamed up again on Sour Soul.  Ghostface Killah has previously revealed hints of his ppreciation of 70s soul which seems to have inspired the instrumental techniques on this 12-track album stream which has just been made available on SoundCloud. The album features live instruments creating a richness to the music which is juxtaposed with the grimness of the rhymes. Guest on the album include Danny Brown, DOOM and Elzhi. Head over to SoundCloud here to stream the album.

Kendrick Lamar - The Blacker The Berry
Following the release of "i" in September Kendrick Lamar has dropped "The Blacker The Berry' a powerful and discordant song that manages to be both absorbing and tender. Production is from Boi-1da and marks a harder sound combared to the more commerical "i" with the passionate vocals verging between angry and near sob at times. Listen to the track below:

Drake "Jungle" Short Film 
It is understandable why Drake has gained a reputation as emotional with his lyrics at times unguarded and somewhat sensitive, a clashing comparison to other mainstream hip-hop. Drake's new short film entitled "Jungle" is an extension of this reputation and encompasses moments of Drake's life past and present. Directed by Karim Huu Do you can watch the video below:
