New Music: Illogic and Fokis

A couple of new joints for today, one from a cat that I hadn't heard from in quite a while and one from an MC I learned about this year.

Illogic's always been one of my favorite MCs, from Columbus' Weightless Recordings crew, but he's been out of the limelight for a minute. Fortunately he's back again with a free EP dropping on November 25th called One Bar Left as a prelude to his new full length joint called Diabolical Fun this Spring. Here's the title track from the EP:

Illogic - One Bar Left
Get more familiar at Illogic's Myspace or at Weightless Recordings.

I got hip to Fokis earlier this year from his project 20/20, an EP with himself on rhymes and Aftermath producer Focus on the beats (download it at the link provided). His upcoming full-length is called A Walk Through MySpace Vol. 1, due to him working exclusively with MCs and producers that he met online. Here's the title track, which features a posse of MCs that Fokis is nice enough to provide introductions for throughout the song:

Fokis - A Walk Through MySpace

Peep a video about the project at YouTube.
