Soul Cocina

Xocoatl Embrujado de Mano


Tune: Hot Milk by Jackie Mitto

Tune: Chocolate City Dreaming by Oddisee

I like Oddisee's lyrics and flow and I love his beats. This is a simple groover with an appropriate title. 1 part Afrobeat, 1 part jazz, 1 part funk. Nice for making chocolate and nice for consuming chocolate. Homemade chocolate stories comming soon. The molino has been attached to the counter in the soul cocina lately for red corn and more.

One thing you won't find us cooking in the soul cocina is Microwave Mayonaise. But you might find Luis V whipping up something that might look like Microwave Mayonaise at Orsen this month. Get in while you can before he moves on in April. Microwave Mayonaise. is a tune on MF Doom's new album, Born Like This. Dude got lyrics and beats to twist your mind and make your "eyes pop out like Popye on spinach" He always talks about food in his rhymes. My fav MF Doom line is "peace goes out to all my gingerbread bakers". He even messes with a little autotune on the tune Suppervillainz

Mos Def has an album coming out in the next few weeks or months. He also likes MF Doom:
