The Minisode Network has been producing 5-minute shorts for classic shows like He-Man, The Ricki Lake Show, Married With Children, Facts of Life and a host of others, and is now producing 5-minute minisodes of Fat Albert! I saw this earlier, and then got a press release about it, so I figured I should hit you guys with this. Enjoy, and make sure you subscribe to their YouTube channel.

Yes, that's definitely J. Slikk, the man who produced Cy Yung's "Dreamcatcher Revisited" with The Roots' Black Thought. Props to J for pounding the pavement and getting that single out there, it's a thing of beauty. I might be getting my hands on some physical copies as well... and I know Slikk and some other ill MCs are working on some heat on the low. And it's probably because of me. Don't wanna toot my own horn but you know what it do.

This beat is open to any and all who think they can represent on it. All styles and genres are welcome from hiphop to soul. The process is real simple, ROCK TO THE BEAT and send it back to us. If we are feelin it it will be used as our first official release which will be by end of the 08 year. If you come on some wak shit we will let you know and the song will be destroyed.

Niggers Are Scared Of Revolution

1 Comment »

As an annual staple on rock the dub, here is my mix for July 4th. With what's gone on in Black America this year, I figured I had to cover two subjects: Obama for President and Sean Bell. I didn't think I could do this in a CD-length (i.e. under 80 minute) timeframe, so here's a 90-minute mixtape (split up into 45 minute mixes) for your cassette decks. Yes we took it back.

(Side A \ Side B) (dload the complete package)


Side A
01/intro (Mumia / Pete Rock)
02/Elucid "Starstruck"
03/David Banner ft. Nas "Middle Finger"
04/interlude (Mumia / The ARE)
05/The ARE w/ Oh No & Kay ft. ROc C "When You're Down (Bad Boys)"
06/KRS-One "Black Cop"
07/Trick Trick "Fuck The Police"
08/Guilty Simpson "Pigs"
09/Trama ft. Muja Messiah "Fuck Da Police"
10/2Pac "Trapped"
11/SoulBrotha "Unforgotten"
12/Mos Def "Can U C The Pride In The Panther? (Jay Dee Remix)"
13/Jay Dee "Fuck The Police"
14/NAs "Testify"

Side B
01/The Last Poets "Niggers Are Scared Of Revolution"
02/Nas ft. Johnny Polygon "Black President"
03/Kidz In The Hall ft. Bun B & Talib Kweli "Change (Work To Do Remix)"
04/Bun B "Get Cha Issue"
05/Joell Ortiz ft. Dante Hawkings "Letter To Obama"
06/interlude ("Inadequate Black Male" / Pete Rock / Mumia)
07/Shala "Audacity Of Hope (Live)"
08/6th Sense "Ignite The People Like Obama"
09/interlude (Mumia / M.O.P.)
10/Foul Mouth Jerk "Culture Of Life"
11/Cody ChesnuTT "AfrObama"
12/Eric B & Rakim "Eric B Is President"

As you can see, a lot of new shit interspersed with some classic anthems. Shouts to anyone I spoke with on this. Your words mean a lot. Our country definitely needs a mess of change, and what better way to highlight it by with music.

PS: Yes, the title is lifted from The Last Poets. Yes, I believe it still holds water today.

Warning Shot Wednesday (7/2/08)

No Comments »

I just got hit with a few Warning Shots from the good folks over at Loosie. Damn I love Wednesdays...

  • Spec Boogie "Vics" (prod. by Suburb): Really uplifting vibes, both lyrically and within the beat. Something about bright horns that are perfect for lighting that fire under our people. Hopefully this will be the year for change...
  • Elucid "Would Be Killer": ...and in true Loosie fashion, all walks of life are shown. Elucid becomes Travis Brickle on this one, detailing the insane thoughts of a person on the brink of causing mass destruction. That Gnarls Barkley loop further brings on the eerie, paranoid feeling.

Damn. Felt like I just read a good novel, or watched an ill movie. Don't sleep.

Boo ft. Young Jeezy & Blu Davinchi vs. TRG "Dat Rap Shit (DJ Nappy Extended THUGSTEP Refix)": Oh yes, this is a true fucking anthem. I put Jeezy's pic up because, well, this track is all about his signature ad-libs, and that boastful hook (I dare you to get that "MISS ME WIT DAT RAP SHEEEEEEEEIT" out of your head after playing this). The kicker is towards the end, where TRG's dubstep rumble drops into a 4x4 kick, alongside that hook? On The Night THUGSTEP Came Alive, this had all of the party rockin', so DJs, test this one on your hungry masses.

rock the dub radio: episode 023

That #23 is a powerful number. It means quality, excellence and a long-standing legacy. Am I perfect and excellent in every way? No, but I am striving towards it. Hell, I didn't ever see myself doing my little corny podcasts, or that people would respond. It's been a deep trek, and I'm proud to continue to embark on it.

This mix was made Friday night, after I got the dirty/no DJ version of Nas' "Fried Chicken". Some cuts from The Lighthouse Project, more new Nas, and a host of joints that I am feeling currently. Check me out:

Wow. This all started with me hitting up Shake, speaking about how shocked I was at this "Sly Fox" track and all of its dopeness. Shake, feeling the exact way I am, then goes and hits the internets with the tracklist! Check it out:

01. Queens Get The Money (Produced by Jay Electronica)
02. You Can’t Stop Us Now (Featuring Eban Thomas of The Stylistics & The Last Poets) (Produced by Salaam Remi)
03. Breathe (Produced by J. Myers & Dustin Moore)
04. Make The World Go Round (Featuring Chris Brown & The Game) (Co-produced by Cool & Dre & The Game)
05. Hero (Featuring Keri Hilson) (Produced by Polow Da Don)

12. Project Roach (Featuring The Last Poets) (Produced by Eric Hudson)
13. Ya’ll My Niggas (Produced by J. Myers)
14. We’re Not Alone (Featuring Mykel) (Produced by of Dead Prez)
15. Black President (Featuring Johnny Polygon) (Produced by DJ Green Lantern)

Damn, I need that "Let's Go" joint. Where did it end up? Regardless, based on everything that's leaked so far, and The Nigger Tape, I am definitely hype on this. I will go so far as to say that I will videotape myself buying this CD if it comes out in with this kind of venom on it. Dead serious.

Maybe I'm not done with Nas after all...

Brokn.Englsh "Different World" (prod. by Illmind): This sat on my harddrive for a week or 2 without me realizing that I needed to unearth this to the masses. The NJ trio does it again, with Illmind on the boards? Gotta love how Ill throws those different elements in the beat, seemingly at will. Don't even think about sleepin'.

leaks of the week!

Here's some fresh DnB Bootleg goodness from Atlantic Connection, who had some DnB bootlegs hogging up space on his HD and decided to unearth them for the masses! I was actually wondering if that Kanye West one was going to see the light of day, ever since hearing Infiltrata spin it...

Loves it! Go grab Tomorrow's Not Enough, early!

Snoop: "Detox Is Finished"

No Comments »

Rolling Stone reports that Snoop confirmed Detox is finished, and just needs to be finalized:

“That record is real, it’s coming,” Snoop Dogg said, having recently recorded tracks for Dre’s album. “I was starting to doubt it myself and then I went up in there and he played so much music for me it knocked my head off.” Snoop also adds the album is finished, and now it’s up to Dre to go through all the songs he’s culled and decide which make the final cut. “I see what he got them waiting for, it’s on and poppin’,” the Doggfather said. Snoop also revealed that Dre will produce his next record, the follow-up to Ego Trippin’.

I hope Dr. Dre can deliver a better album for Snoop than Ego Trippin'. And still no timeline on Detox coming out = hella skeptical.
