“Empire State of Mind” is destined to be played in promos for Knicks games. “Let’s hear it for New York!” Alicia sings in the cheesy hook, giving Jay a breather from name dropping every tourist spot in the verses. Why would he title this flaccid song in such a way as to draw comparisons to Nas’ “N.Y. State of Mind”? Is he trying to give us yet another reason to dig up a copy of Illmatic?

“Dikembe Mutombo” is from Woodsman’s latest, Collages, out now digitally on Mexican Summer. This song is fairly raucous, and the connection to Mutombo is tenuous, but sometimes it’s hard to tell with instrumental music. It’s entirely possible he laid down some guitar on this track. I don’t know if we’ll ever find the truth.
