Interesting detail I discovered inverting the colors of the new Jay-Z album cover. There was a lot of discussion on the web about the colors, people telling it should be black and blue…and then I got it. Cool thing.

Original cover will look like this. Photos from the new video, “Run This Town”, featuring Kanye and Rihanna, look like this.

But actually I’m not here to talk about Blueprint 3, what I’ve been listening a lot in the world of hip-hop recently is the new Blaq Poet album, curiously named Tha Blaqprint.
You can’t go wrong with beats from Dj Premier and that old school Queensbridge hardcore rhyming…really great to hear some good hip-hop, from street cats raping some clever lines in 2009. I mean Jay-Z makes good music too, but one gotta separate the waters and see past the hype and all the commercial glitter, you know.

Another stuff that recently came to my attention is the upcoming new album of Crown City Rockers (CCR), titled The Day After Forever. CCR are a hip-hop band with uptempo beats and songs full of good vibes. If you dig The Roots, you gonna like them for sure.

Here’s the artwork on the albums cover:

Fresh. Check their myspace (or the next link) for the track “Soul”, the first single of the album.
