Here is the active playlist for tonight, make the jump for songs, videos, and extras.

-What It Sounds Like-AZ Feat. Charlie Rock

AZ is “the visualizer”

Visualizin the realism of life and actuality
Fuck who’s the baddest a person’s status depends on salary
And my mentality is, money orientated
I’m destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it
cause yeah, we were beginners in the hood as five percenters
But somethin must of got in us cause all of us turned to sinners
Now some, restin in peace and some are sittin in San Quentin
Others such as myself are tryin to carry on tradition
Keepin the schwepervesence street ghetto essence inside us
Cause it provides us with the proper insight to guide us
Even though, we know somehow we all gotta go
but as long as we leavin thievin we’ll be leavin with some kind of dough
so, and to that day we expire and turn to vapors
me and my capers-ll be somewhere stackin plenty papers
Keepin it real, packin steel, gettin high
Cause life’s a bitch and then you die

-(Let Me Put) Love On Your Mind-ConFunkShun

-Happy New Years!-Raekwon

In December 2009, major hip hop site HipHopDx released their 2009 HipHopDx Awards. Raekwon’s fourth studio album and latest effort Only Built For Cuban Linx… Pt. II was chosen as ‘Album of the Year’, described as ‘…the Hip Hop equivalent to The Godfather 2, with Rae as revitalized as Marlon was…’ and Raekwon himself picked as Best Emcee of 2009 (fellow New Yorker Nas had won in 2008). The DX staff justified this pick with this description of Cory Wood’s career in 2009.
‘Raekwon brought it back to lyrical, dope rap. He released an album that spoke to teens, twenty-somethings, thirty-somethings, and beyond. Without compromising, the Chef made an edgy Hip Hop record that refused to bastardize the catalog he laid down 15 years ago. On top of that, Rae (along with Ghostface) was a go-to for numerous rappers making albums, ranging from the Playaz Circle to Jadakiss to BK One. That’s beyond real, as was a year filled with performing in arenas, clubs and even churches. When it came to mastering the ceremony, Rea had ’em all following the leader’.

-Meth Vs Chef Part 2-Wu Massacre

-Sassy-Dominique Larue

-Our Way-Fashawn Ft. Evidence

-Two Pistols-Strong Arm Steady / Madlib

“The saying “raw hip-hop” gets thrown around a lot, but that’s exactly what Strong Arm Steady’s In Search of Stoney Jackson is. J.Rocc let SAS pick from 200 Madlib beats and they unloaded their rhyme books over them. You cannot overlook an album produced by Madlib, period.”

that’s just what we hear

We Gon’ Go-Kardinal Offishall

Jason D. Harrow (born May 12, 1976), better known by his stage name Kardinal Offishall is a Canadian rapper and record producer. He is often credited as Canada’s “hip hop ambassador”, and is best known for his distinctive reggae and dancehall-influenced style of hip-hop
M-Dot – Backstabbers

M-dot (Michael Januario) a full blood italian mc (born & raised in East Boston & revere, currently residing in lynn, MA) has grinded profusely, attempting to gain ground in an era that embodies an abundance of so called “rappers.” M-Dot, ranked in Stuff Magazine’s 2009 Annual “Hot 100,” is striving to out work everyone while never becoming complacent. He understands the importance of always growing as an mc, constantly challenging himself to make music for all audiences. “M-Dot’s Grinding his way in!” writing, recording, editing, producing, his own music (in his own studio that he built), booking over a hundred shows worldwide per year without a booking agent, making his own flyers, creating his own web design, making major collaborations without a manager (Joell Ortiz, Masta Ace, Agallah of Dip Set, Edo G, Gangstarr Foundation, Akrobatik), even executive producing his own videos. All accomplished by himself without any budget or money whatsoever! “Good music, relentless hustle, and remaining affable and humble, have paved the way for his impressive resume.”

(from his MySpace page)

You got to give the people, now
Give the people what they want
Well, well, well, well

Well, it’s about time for things to get better
We want the truth, the truth and no more lies
We want freedom, justice and equality
I want it for you and I want it for me

People want better education now
People want better food to eat
People want here better homing
People need money, money

People need equality
People need understanding
People need freedom
And gotta [Incomprehensible]

You, you, you, you, you better
Give the people what
Give the people what
Give the people what
Give ’em what they want
