Rashad & Confidence - The Element Of Surprise

This is just one of those things where the unknown takes you completely by surprise, fitting enough considering the album title itself. Yea, ok. You got my attention.

"Rashad & Confidence, two longtime students of the game, finally drop their long-awaited debut album "The Element of Surprise". This up-and-coming MC/producer duo, hailing from Brooklyn and Philly, merged to create a record with a timeless sound reminiscent of hip-hop's golden era but with a fresh, updated feel."

Oddisee - Rock Creek Park

OH and while we're on the Mello Music Group train, another one that slipped through the posts... Oddisee's Rock Creek Park; and album created entirely around the park and what it means to him.

"Rock creek park is & has always been one of my favorite places in Washington, DC. It has a way of aging with you & adapting to where you are in life. When I was younger, it was a place for skipping rocks, bike rides & imaginary adventures in the woods. As a teen it was a place where I played basket ball, had cook outs with friends & walked through with dates. As an adult it's my short cut through the city, my quickest way from Silver Spring to George Town. One thing it still is and always will be is my retreat."        - Oddisee
