1. Raekwon, Babu, Mr. MFN eXquire, Freddie Gibbs, Action Bronson, & More Make Closed Sessions Vol 2 Worth More Than Just a Free Download.

    A solid head-nodda to set it off before summer starts to peace out, the Closed Sessions Vol.2 brought by Chi-city’s Ruby Hornet rounds up a nice sampler of now-school emceeing and production. Mostly mid-west in origin, with some intracontinental boom-bap contribtions thrown in, we particularly gravitate towards the heavily grimy soul-based bangers produced by Thelonious Martin featuring Queens’ Action Bronson (“Blackbird”) and Chicago’s Rockie Fresh. LA’s Dilated Junky DJ Babu also laces the G.O.D. Raekwon for the lone veterano emcee contribution to the set. Like any compilation, there are some stronger selections than others (we’ll leave that up to you to decide) but the 16 tracks all together make for a satisfying soundtrack to end the summer, whatever your holiday weekend plans may be.
