Big Boi's "The Crown Life" documentary

I think I might've posted the trailer for this a while back, but I'm not sure. Anyway, it's a documentary about Big Boi's life and career prolly around the time he dropped Sir Lucious Leftfoot. From the youtube page:
The short film lets audiences into Big Boi's life as he performed during the 2011 Grammy Awards weekend; inside his studio, Stankonia, as he prepares for his latest projects; and an evening out on the town in his hometown of Atlanta with stops at his favorite spots to unwind.

Pharoahe Monch ft. Jean Grae, Royce Da 5'9" - Assassins

Monch, Jean Greazy and Royce come together to lace a crazy track for Monch's latest album, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades). Straight lyrical madness from all of em.
 I'm on point like Chris Paul,
You on point like an Atlantic City hooker that licks balls
I'm bout to flip in this bitch like Dominique Dawes
and shut shit down like a car when it stalls
I am the deadliest rapper, you claimin' that you flow like water
but really ya'll niggas Evian backwards
- Royce

This might not be Monch's best album, but it's still hot.

Album cover + tracklist: Random Axe - Random Axe

Random Axe is Sean Price + Guilty Simpson + Black Milk. All dope emcees in their own respect. Expect the album to be filled with hard beats and the swag you'd expect from the 3 of em. Drops June 14th, tracklist after the jump.

Album cover: KRS-One + Freddie Foxxx aka Bumpy Knuckles - Royalty Check

Two of rap's legends are tryin to stay relevant by coming together for a collabo album. If the production is on point, this should be pretty sick!

Sha Stimuli ft. Lydia Caesar - Asthma

I only have 3 songs by Sha Stimuli, but every one is dope! I posted one here before called "Motherfucker" but I think that needs a re-up.

Trae Tha Truth ft. Young Buck - Slammin Doorz

I love these kinds of beats. Off Trae's upcoming Street King (+1 for creative album title).

Video: Saigon ft. Faith Evans - Clap (prod. by Just Blaze)

So Saigon's album has been in works for a while now. Dude had a lot of buzz but got caught up in all the label bullshit. His album got delayed blah blah, y'all heard this same story before. Anyways, he finally got a chance to release it, The Greatest Story Never Told. It had features from Jay-Z, Devin the Dude, Bun B, Q-Tip and more and has a lot of production from Just Blaze, includin this track here. Saigon said the album was gonna be one of the greatest hip hop albums ever. I didn't listen to it yet, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't lol. W/e it's prolly still real solid. Maybe one day Saigon..

Zo! & Tigallo is a group made up of producer Zo! and Phonte of Little Brother, under his singin/RnB moniker Tigallo. They re-did this sick song called "Return Of The Mack" by Mark Morrison. The product turns out to be pretty good! This is apparently off their upcoming second album called They Shoulda Never Gave You Niggas Studio Equipment, but now I kinda wanna check out their first, Zo! & Tigallo Love The 80s. And just for fun, the OG "Return Of The Mack" after the jump. 

MED ft. Blu - Your Life (prod. by Exile)

MED is this cat on Stones Throw with Madlib, DOOM, Guilty Simpson and them. I've never listened to any of his shit, but his verses I've heard are all sick. And Exile laces a seriously dope beat.
