Ras G: Brotha From Anotha Planet *NEW ALBUM*

Posted in Events, LISTEN TO THIS, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2009 by worldromper

ras-approach-lp1Dropped today like sunshine from the sky is Ras G‘s new album Brotha From Anotha Planet; have a listen and download a free track “Shinelight” at XLR8R, and then get over to Brainfeeder or Alpha Pup for more information and to buy the whole tripped-out, psychedelicious thing- “ghetto sci-fi,” if you will.

AND if you are lucky like me and Ras G and live in LA where the weather’s so stupid it must have been dropped on its head as a baby, I will see you at Low End Theory tomorrow night for the official album release party where Ras G will perform along with Dakim, Teebs, and all residents.

I’ll smoke to that!

DOPE SAUCE: Mochipet’s XLR8R Mix

1187777298_l1I cannot get enough of this mix. I have listened to it twice this morning and had to burn a CD for my car and my home.

With bits from Jamie Lidell, Eprom, Lupe Fiasco, Daeldelus, Three Six Mafia featuring UGK (THIRD COAST REPRESENTIN’) AND MJ, it is the dope sauce you were hoping would come your way this fine February afternoon. Eating it makes you ill, not sick, and is highly suggested.

Listen to and download Mochipet Presents Daly City Records right here.
