I'm going to start sharing a song a day from my 25k+ song collection. We'll begin with the song that inspired this blog's domain name:
CunninLynguists feat. Kory Calico - Mic Like a Memory => LISTEN
"Mic Like a Memory" is my favorite song by the CunninLynguists, a duo from Lexington, Kentucky consisting of Deacon the Villain and Kno. The melodic production is courtesy of Kno himself, who has produced the majority of the group's songs. The perfect lyric sample on the hook comes from "1-9-9-9" by Common.

It is on their first album, Will Rap for Food, released in 2001. Their fourth album, Dirty Acres, comes out on November 27th.
