What are some good music blogs? (With a slant towards old skool hip hop or reggae would be best, but I'm open to give a listen to anything/everything.)

I'm constantly on the lookout for more music. I'm looking for a place I can go every day or two and read a bunch of posts that say things like "Check out this dj mix of blah blah" with a link to a stream, or "If you like Blackalicious, take a listen to THIS and THIS" with links to mp3s on some band's site.

pps. This seems like it should be a double post, but I couldn't find anything in the search.

Previous music blog roundups here, here, and here. Start with the last link, it's probably got lots of stuff you want to check out.

right away, I'm not answering your question as you asked it, but i find getting on mailing lists to help alot with finding new shit. You'll get alot more than old-skool hip hop and reggae, but the OtherMusic list has cost me lots of dough (and that's a good thing). SoulJazz has one too.

Here are three, all fairly hip-hop-focused, from my feedlist. There are a lot of other hip-hop blogs--start by checking the folks these people link to. I don't know any decent reggae blogs (though Ear Fuzz had an entry about Lee Perry and the Congos), but I wish I did.
