Seriously. If you see something mildly intriguing, follow the link. It’s all strong and good. We’re taking the “work” out of “leg work.” Then it’s just “leg.” I have no idea where we’re going with this. ONTO THE LINKS!
Well look what URB found. I’ve called him “the coolest man in the world” and I invite someone to challenge it. I’m not sure you can. Jay-Z‘s unheard verse from Maybach Music 2 was found. The wizards at URB put it all together and let Jay lead off. Go. [URB] or [YouTube]
What’s up with INLE, Thursdays and hip-hop? We blame the grind of the week. Either way, we hopefully made a successful introduction to you and Jay Electronica last week, but here’s a little more. It’s not new. It’s raw, but if you like him, you should check out. [2DopeBoyz]
Oh, those indie kids are always so complimentary of each other. Not really. In this case, they certainly were, though.

We’ll do it dirty to end things. I guess . . . as dirty as you can when a Burt Bacharach cover is involved. A little Stealing the Covers flavor to this edition of Links. Jim O’Rourke, producer and former Sonic Youth member, puts his spin on “Close To You” like only he should. [RawkBlog]
