It's been a while since I did this (thank God the semester's over). In the intermediary period a lot of good music has been released. The Clipse released their highly anticipated 'Til The Casket Drops and Wale leaked what may very well be the song of the year. Geo of Blue Scholars got put on by Duck Down and rhymed alongside legends KRS-One and Buckshot. Joell Ortiz released one of the best mixtapes of the year in Road Kill, Grynch hooked up with producer Illmind, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released one of the best projects I've heard...ever. The fourth installment of What's In Rotation takes all of these releases into consideration while looking back at the past year and decade (with a couple older tracks as well). Hit the jump for the tracklist/link:
02) Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - "Kings"
03) Kidz In The Hall - "We At It Again"
04) Grynch - "The Right Way"
05) KRS-One & Buckshot - "Oh Really Remix" feat. Geologic & Talib Kweli.
06) Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - "T.R.O.Y." (had to take it back to the classic)
07) Fice, Logics, Fatal Lucciuano & Justis - "Boss Life Remix"
08) The Physics - "Ready For We"

Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,
