Lushlife: No More Golden Days
Buy! - (self-released)
The latest release from this talented Philadelphia MC/producer (real name Rajesh Haldar) is an excellent mixtape that fuses intelligent, gritty hip-hop with forward-thinking indie tropes. Often reminiscent of Nas, his flow and lyrics have significantly improved since 2009's Cassette City, guest appearances come from Das Racist's Heems, Titus Andronicus' Andrew Cedermark, Brown Recluse's Tim Meskers, as well as a slew of fellow Philly MCs, while the consistently solid beats range from his own productions to recycled backdrops from Gang Gang Dance, J Dilla, Clams Casino, Frank Ocean, Slowdive, Flying Lotus, Games (now known as Ford & Lopatin), Jai Paul, and more. 11/4/2011 - Alex
