Double eXcel: Wu-Tang Clan's Masta Killa and OutKast's Big Boi

Old souls speaking the same tongue

Following along that "something you've never heard before" vibe, certainly, are three songs ("Lines," "CPU," "Objectum Sexuality") produced by or featuring slinky pop-duo Phantogram. On "Shoes for Running," Big teams up with the gauzy Nathan Williams of Wavves. All the tracks are outliers on a hip-hop album, injecting a new wave touch that definitely lives up to Big's lofty billing.

Masta Killa lays in the old-school cut. Big Boi is never happy in familiar surroundings. Both are students, speaking different languages, but getting the message across.

Masta's Selling My Soul leans back on the Wu-Tang sound of yore.
