Mr. Yote doesn't make rap songs; he has been constructing a rap universe.  Yoteland is a magical, musical world of wizards, goblins, and ghouls.  With his sidekick Yungeth Dre, the producer/MC/graphic artist gives us a glimpse at the methods to his madness.  http://yoteland.bandcamp.com

Jel, beat-maker extraordinaire of Themselves, Subtle, Glass Cutters, etc., has remained one of hip hop's most well-respected producers since the late 90s.  In our discussion he covers his formative years in Chicago to later developments in the Bay Area, sharing tales of his days with the Anticon collective, overcoming creative stagnation, and he announces some exciting future projects.  https://jelsmusic.bandcamp.com
