Ever since I first heard him back in the Rawkus days I've had nothing but the highest admiration for Mr. Ayatollah. Now part of the Elementality family, the highly talented producer keeps churning out banging material - the latest being his new album "Be Real Black For Me". Filled with majestic strings, triumphant horns, soulful guitar licks, thick rhythm tracks and tight turntable work, there's no question that this is a perfect listen for the upcoming summer. While the majority of the LP is instrumental, 'Tollah also finds time to collaborate with the one and only Anthony Hamilton (on the beautiful "I Love Music"), EMP fam Silent Knight and Jered Sanders and even Inspectah Deck. The only downside is that as of now it's only available as a digital release (purchase it from iTunes) though a limited 7" single featuring the Anthony Hamilton joint on the A-side and the Rebel INS/Silent Knight track on the flip is also up for grabs @ Cotter Records. You can however stream the entire thing in all it's glory below, just don't forget to TURN IT UP!!
