Your Daily Lick: Solos in Stereo II

Various Artists (Solos Records)



What it is: a sampler of indie-flavored hip-hop songs and beats by artists on a Bay Area label. What it isn't: entirely cohesive or consistent, or, despite being assembled and mastered in Oakland, an all-local compilation. Yao, Bookworms, DJ Enso, and Roche rep the Bay, while out-of-towners Javelin and CB Radio contribute solid tracks of their own.
