"Coward" featuring Royce Da 5'9 from Kid Vishis' new album Timing Is Everything is a hardcore Hip Hop fan's dream: Down and dirty street talk in the form of Rhythmic American Poetry delivered by SKILLED emcees. Sure it may be littered with disturbing gun imagery and a slight line of homophobia, but when performed with such grace as these lyrics are over a beat as gutter as the subject matter, even non-thugs like me may still be able to enjoy it for what it is - good, grimy street sh!t.

Bluesy Rock-N-Soul musician Gary Clark, Jr. is not about letting fans go too long without new music. Remixing his 2012 release Blak And Blu into a mixtape (featuring guests such as Talib Kweli, Bilal, Alice Smith and Big K.R.I.T. on the title track) is just what the doctor ordered to hold us over as we wait for his next album to drop.

Sweet soulful goodness is Hiatus Kaiyote's contribution to the world and we're all the better for it! "Nakamarra" is the kind of song that makes you feel at ease and hopeful. It also can make you shed a tear or 2 in a way that isn't sad but simply just for being such a beautiful tune played by an awesome band and sung by a melodically lovely voice. Pardon our tardiness to bring you this amazing song/video (it's like a year old!) but trust this ain't the last you'll see of HK on GB!
