I had to jack this Alchemist beat off his new project A Doctor, Painter & An Alchemist Walk Into A Bar, because I’m in absolutely in love with it. In fact, I started writing this verse the moment I heard it. Thanks for the inspiration and the instrumental, Uncle Al!
Here’s the one non-instrumental track off the new ALC project, “Stained Glass” featuring Westside Gunn.
Jay-Z took the stage at the new and improved Webster Hall last night for his B-Sides 2 show, and it was filled with highlights—including guest appearances by Nas and Cam’ron. Of all the footage that I’ve seen, this clip of Hov doing the Blueprint 2 sleeper “Some People Hate” with the live band is my favorite. Check it out above, and check out Tidal for the full set playlist.
I had this idea years ago, but all this B-Sides 2 concert footage inspired me to dig in my bag and put together a mix of all my old Stan Ipcus songs recorded on Jay-Z beats. Enjoy the mix!

Thanks so much to Matis for putting me on the album, and always setting me up to shine! And thanks for the mention in the Mass Appeal interview (what up Rob Kenner). Love!
Funny, in the trailer for the new Judd Apatow-produced comedy The Big Sick, the word “Stonehenge” comes up as they’re discussing a game called “You Can’t Rhyme It.” But yo, I just rhymed the word “Stonehenge” on my “Blue Sky Playground” verse! Movie looks good, check out the trailer below.
