What does it say about the state of hip-hop when this jam by Philly-based Plastic Little â€“ which clearly doesn’t take itself very seriously â€“ is so much better than most of your mainstream hip-hop out there?
It’s a rhetorical question, I suppose. I’m not here to debate the direction of hip-hop. But it’s joints like this that give me hope. Think Pharcyde, circa Bizarre Ride. The Jump Off drips with irony and humor, not to mention one hell of a fresh beat.
Seriously, what’s the jump off?: “You’re dad’s in the Russian mafia? That’s the jump off!”
Vinyl junkies can pick up the 12″, which features Spank Rock and Diplo, here. You can also pre-order the full-length She’s Mature at the same spot.

Speaking of Spank Rock, Ninja Tune is offering a free download of Rick Rubin here (make sure your browser allows a pop-up window). It’s off the new LP YoYoYoYoYo.
You can stream the video, too.

Anything Diplo is welcome in my book.
