I think this is my favourite song off Escape 2 Mars, the guitar riff is so hypnotic.

I now have both Common Market's self-titled and Tobacco Road albums. Self-titled is a classic, while TR fell just a little short. I highly recommend at least self-titled if you're into Sweatshop Union, or any of the Blue Scholars stuff. Haven't been able to get into the new Blue Scholars **** myself- I'm not sure why... I think their self-titled set the bar too high for me- it's so smooth and clean, I don't know. But, I started looking into the Northwest hip-hop scene, and realized that a few Rhymesayers acts are based out of Seattle: the Boom Bap Project and Jake One. Might give them a listen to familiarize myself with that Washington stuff a little more...
Life is just blah, blah, blah
You hope for blah
And sometimes you find it, but mostly it's blah
And waiting for blah
And hoping you were right about the blahs you made
And then, just when you think you've got the whole blah'd damn thing figured out
And you're surrounded by the ones you blah
Death shows up... anddd blah, blah, blah.

The Roots definitely have some of the chill, upbeat, relaxing tunes in the genre. Not to say that they dont bring the noise when they have to.

Not sure if anyone posted this already...

love to chill out to that track^

I'm short of ideas right now for chilled out tracks, this is worth a look I suppose.


"If we're all merely players in a play on this great stage,
the problem is the script writers ain't on the same page,
I echo through the mountain when I'm singing in the air,
from my lab a lad with lavish lyrics living in his lair."

Pinocchio poets played by profiting puppeteers"
