Dove of De La Soul said he was “Sick of half-ass awards shows/Sick of name brand clothes/Sick of R&B bitches over bullshit tracks/Cocaine and crack Which brings sickness to blacks/” back in 1996 on Stakes Is High.
I am willing to bet he expected things to change.
Now 15 years later, imagine how sick of it he must be.
Well, J.Rawls and the Liquid Crystal Project are still sick of it and have remade Stakes is High with P.Blackk and Le For The Uncool.

LxE For the Uncool teams up with his people at Arris Productions for “Bordeaux VIIs”. This song is the first single off THE MALCOLM LITTLE APPARATUS coming in August.
Above is a video of Talib Kweli performing “Palookas” off his album Gutter Rainbows with a live band in San Francisco earlier this month. Talib Kweli will be in Columbus Friday.
He will be signing Gutter Rainbows at a Magnolia Thunderpussy instore from 7-9 before performing with a live band that night at Skully’s. J.Rawls feat Le, Illogic and Illogic Poetic, and the first showcase for the Are You Radio Ready Contest will open.
The Magnolia Thunderpussy instore signing is free.

MP3: J-Rawls x Illogic, Ill Poetic x Le For the Uncool “The Passion” (#OHIOTAKEOVERTOUR)
J.Rawls is hitting the road with Illogic, Ill Poetic, and Le For the Uncool to spread the word about his upcoming album The Hip Hop Affect, which drops 5/17.
Dudes are excited so they did a nice song over the intro of the Roots last album to celebrate hitting the road. Listen to “The Passion” and then hit up one of the shows.
MP3:L.e.Fortheuncool-Lifestyle Excessiveness Feat Naledge
L.e. for the Uncool teams up with Naledage from Kidz in the Hall.
Beat by Rashad. Thats right Columbus cats with a Duck Down artist on a track.
Song itself is dope. Basically about being true to yourself…. L.e. makes a good point about not calling yourself the next Dilla or Pac and just doing you.
J. Rawls leaked this last night. It’s the first jam off of L.e.’s upcoming mixtape “The Measure”, which is set to drop August 31st.
