J Rocc co-hosted Benji B‘s Radio 1 show last week and previewed a good number of tunes from his upcoming Some Cold Rock Stuf album. He also played some unheard remixes and unreleased material from Madvillain and Madlib-produced Black Star! Turns out the Madvillain album may not be out for another 2 years…

J Rocc recently joined Benji B on his show on BBC Radio 1 for an exclusive preview of his upcoming album Some Cold Rock Stuf. He says it will be out in March. We shall see.

Download the first half of the show, Some Cold Stuf (preview), below or catch the full show on the BBC iPlayer.

J Rocc – Cold Rock Stuf (BBC Radio 1 Preview)


A while back (actually I think my 1st or 2nd post when I started the blog) I posted, Jaydiohead genius, Max Tannone’s Mos Dub; a mashup Mos Def acapellas over dub reggae. This time around it’s the same formula as the last project, but just as the name implies, it’s Talib over dub reggae instead of Mos. I don’t listen to Talib Kweli on the regular, so I can’t remember the names to all of the original songs, but you’ll find features from Bun B, Common, Ghostface Killah, Mos Def, Kanye West and a few others.

Prof. Skerritt Bwoy gives us a little lesson on Daggering 101.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Remember, always practice safe daggering. – Major Lazer

Ladders are next level and all, but I don’t know.. I’m not trying to die from daggering :-/
