This summer, underground favorite Wordsmith and veteran emcee Chubb Rock plan on Bridging the Gap between hip-hop’s old and new schools. For those who can’t wait, though, Word’s also provided a little something to enjoy in the meantime: the A Crack In the Bridge mixtape, composed of promo records not available on the album proper. On Music for the Milennium, a newly-released cut off the street album, Word teams up with Soulstice (of Wade Waters fame) to deliver some spaced-out meditations on how they’ll bring music into the year 3000 and beyond—now that’s planning ahead! Barring some big-time advances in cryogenic technology, it’s doubtful any of us will live that long (heck, by that point the human race might not even be around), but the innovation-celebrating sentiment, as well as Capish‘s blindingly-glossy synth backdrop, make this an easy record to get behind. A Crack in the Bridge just dropped today, and is available for free download online.
