The collaboration of Brooklyn's Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def) and New Orleans' Mannie Fresh may not be what many of us expected but the quality of music these 2 artists create should come as no surprise. Regarded as one of the most progressive and consistent emcees, Bey hooks up with one of Hip Hop's best behind the boards to deliver "Black Jesus", taken from their upcoming release OMFGODBKNOLA.

I heard this last year at the Halo Bar when a dj played it and luckily he was a vdj so I saw the video also. It was one of those things where I got knocked out with the dopeness but I stupidly didn't follow up. Fast-foward to now with the joint being used all over tv (Adidas & Adult Swim-Toonami) and I realize what a colossal f-up was made by not jumpin on this when I first heard it! Anyway, better late than never right? I was fortunate enough to catch one half of this duo, Lunice, do a set at the Major Lazer show here in St. Louis where I was educated more on TNGHT by my good friend 18aC. So, almost a whole year after it's official debut, we give you the Ghetto Blastic debut of TNGHT "Higher Ground"! Please to enjoy...

A welcome detour from Snoop, the artist formerly known as Dogg says "No Guns Allowed" was inspired after "hearing about all these school shootings and these people getting guns in their hands and not knowing what to do with them and just going on a rampage, so it really touched me and affected me to where I wanted to say something.” Produced by Major Lazer and featuring Drake and Cori B, "No Guns Allowed" is a stripped down, reggae-style groove providing a much-needed message of peace.
