West coast rapper Problem drops off his new mixtape, "354: Lift Off" today, and I actually love it. Never really paid any attention to him, but he's on my radar now.

Virginia newcomer Willie Waze is another emcee affected by the recent Mike Brown murder, and was inspired to give us this track titled, "The World Is A Ghetto". I shouldn't have to tell ya'll what instrumental that is...that good ole classic from the Geto Boys.

I'm just gonna say this: I think was great, because they all came together to speak up, but this just isn't enough. These guys have more power than this to have a stronger effect. It's easy to get in a booth and record, get out in them streets, or better yet, donate some money to his grieving mother, and I don't mean iTunes sales. Just sayin.
Newcomer Dante Jets is another added to the list of artists inspired to speak on the difficult times our people are currently going through, with a new track called "Black Thoughts". Good stuff. Check it out.
