News that Kanye West and Jay-Z, the veritable KINGS of, well, the U. S. of motherfuckin’ A, are collaborating on an album called Watch the Throne has excited many of us. Here is some of that BAD GANGSTER SHIT right here. This song is like UK Grime or something but American, pretty ghetto n shit. I think H.A.M. stands for hard as a motherfucker.

This is a lovely track, after that rock hard banger, to calm you down. Ducktails is some guy from Real Estate, who are a lovely indie-folk type guitar band, and he’s made a track with Panda Bear. Anything with Noah Lennox is usually good and this is no exception.

I know that him being part of BBC Sound of 2011 top 5 could destroy his credibility, but I think I am right in saying that James Blake is one of the most exciting artists of this year.
