best hip-hop album of the new millennium? not quite, but really good and dangerously underrespected. the best thing about “beauty and the beat” is that it is a legitimate psychedelic hip-hop album. usually when people call hip-hop psychedelic, they mean ‘space-y’, but edan samples obscure (and excellent sounding) 60s psych and raps over it about seeing colors and armies of metal. really quite amazing:

edan feat. mr. lif--making planets

and an entire concert edan did with his buddy dhaga can be found here. it's great and my mind is blown by the fact that dude raps and djs at the same time.
on another note, the new dungen is also psychedelically awesome
