Free Download:Braille-Native Lungs

braille-native lungs

One of the hardest working men in the Hip-Hop scene is back with the album of his career. Braille has been a staple in the underground scene since way before we started this website, and with Native Lungs, he shows us why he is still the man. Its honest, intense, and deep every single moment, and like the rest of the music on Humble Beast (the label that Braille himself helped start) it is leaps and bounds ahead of its peers. If you dont like Hip-Hop that makes you think, dont download this. If you dont like emcees who talk about their struggles and stand for good, then dont download this.

If you like rap, dont download this.

If you love HIP-HOP, then why are you still reading this. the link is down there

    Glad to see this is a free download! I wanted to check it out but wasn’t sure that I was quite ready to pay for it yet. I appreciate the link.

    I do want to say one thing about your description above concerning the comment, “If you like rap, dont download this.” I find this problematic categorically. I have never understood this distinction. Several people have tried to distinguish hip/hop from rap and it never works. For instance, hip/hop has socially conscious lyrics while rap talks about killing cops and objectifying women. Well then, what do you do with Public Enemy who had both forms of lyricism? They were called rap back then but now they are considered hip/hop. A lot of times the distinction is drawn regionally between West Coast/East Coast. Then what do you do with Eminem or Playdough, to name a couple. That doesn’t seem to work either. Hip/hop has always struck me to be the broader category because it describes a whole culture including graffiti, break-dancing, beat-boxing, social identity for inner city youths (take the Native Tongues and Afrikaa Bombaata, for instance), etc. However, rap could be considered a sub-aspect of hip/hop, maybe one that exemplifies violence and sexuality too much, but it is still “hip/hop.” So I just found it odd that you would say that we wouldn’t like this album if we like rap. I do like rap, but I also find it hard drawing a distinction at times between those two terms. Its all inclusive, it seems to me (and to a lot of critics who know the genre much better than I do). I don’t know, minor point maybe, but it just struck me as strange or, at least, not as careful with wording as I usually expect from you guys! Anyways, once again, thanks for the link and I appreciate this site in many ways!
