Mike Phillips - "A True Story"

Mike Phillips is one of the most dope contemporary jazz saxophonists. I have friends who don't really listen to jazz become a fan. "A True Story (Tabernacle - Atl)", from his debut album You Have Reached Mike Phillips (2002), is one of  my favorite tracks. The song features a "poem that sounds like an erotic encounter between two people, until it turns out to be between a man and his saxophone." Listen to the song below.

T.I. Back?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last week, you've had to hear the hype around the new songs released featuring T.I. Fresh out of an Atlanta halfway house, Tip has been featured on songs with Jeezy, 2Chainz, and Future. He also dropped his first single entitled "I'm Flexin'"  produced by Big K.R.I.T. (I was slightly disappointed to hear K.R.I.T. didn't have a verse).
