Lili K has been relatively unheard of after her beautiful voice graced that epic
track from Chance the Rappers – “Hey Ma”. Here is song called “Refreshing”
from her early stuff that I think is a raw, refreshing sound for this week’s Soulful Sunday.

Earlier today, 9th Wonder released another Rapsody gem. For this Round Table Discussion, she brought Mac Miller and The Cool Kids.
Family. There’s not much more important. Whether it’s the family you were born into or the family you gain through close friendships, the love is the same. Whoever they are, wherever they are, make sure they know you love them.
Here’s two for the family. Mine and yours.
John Legend – Don’t Have to Change
Mos Def ft. Georgia Anne Muldrow – Roses
– Peace and Love to the Preston Family
This is the Relax. The time of day where you shake off the stress and replace it with calm. And what better way to do that than with good music.
I randomly just found this gem and it has “relax” written all over it…
Gretchen Parlato – Better Than
There was a point in time where we all believed hip-hop was dead and gone. Slowly, but surely, it got its pulse back. Veterans were getting back to the basics and newcomers were providing fresh perspective. In the middle were (and are) a group of artists that kept the genre for completely killing over. Artists that didn’t make music for the radio. Or the club. Or the streets. They made music for the culture.
This joint right here, from Chicago’s own Sam-I-Am and Encyclopedia Brown, is definitely for the culture!
2 Many Rappers
This one right here is for the city. Which city? My city. Chi City!
First up is a joint from my brother PREZ (@PREZart). This is from the PREZidential project, which is out right now as I type. Check it out here.

Salute to Chicago and the artists that rep the city well!
Just saw this over at OkayPlayer. One of the standout joints on Ab-Soul‘s latest project, Control System. This remix features the whole Black Hippy team and they all did their part in murdering this track. Tune in:
