More than likely my last show for 2011.

And what a year it has been. Instead of doing the usual DJ mix of the best of whatever year it is, I decided to do a show with "oh my god so many new tunes out this month!!!".

Hip Hop from Jakarta, a great nod to NWA's infamous hit with "Film the Police" featuring Sage Francis and Toki Wright... and Common has a new album out next week with NAS. Look OUT!!!!

Dwight Trible has released an album with MdCL and Miguel Atwood Ferguson (among others) on it. I could just play this whole album on air!! Dwight is a genius. Plus a new release from Gregory Porter.

In short there are some dope new tunes out there.

Have a safe end to the year everyone and I would like to say a thank you for listening and supporting not just this year but the last SIX years. See you in 2012. Let's try and make it a more peaceful, equal year!!

bless
Blair
