REAL St. Louis Hip-Hop

If you're a fan of this blog, you've probably seen posts I've dedicated to Trackstar the DJ, and if you peeped Disc 1 of The Lighthouse Project, you heard Tech Supreme and Tef Poe. One thing the three of these artists share in common is that they represent St. Louis. In the forthcoming Lighthouse Project compilations I am working on (including one dedicated to my home state, New Jersey), I am looking for some ill Hip-Hop from MCs in St. Louis, or in the surrounding area. I'm not sure how the project is going to come about in the end, but I can only imagine it coming out hot, based on the work these 3 have put in.

Submit any tracks to or hit me on AIM at DOA khal, and let's build!

Infrared Soundclash

Sean Paul, Elephant Man & Mavado "Infrared (BGDB Soundclash Megamix)": Here's a mega mix I did for Enigmatik's Boo Goo Doo Boom, based on his earlier post about Mavado's "Japanese" cut over the Infrared riddim. He threw a .rar with a few versions on it, we discussed the best ones, and another Mega Mix is complete.

I'm gonna try and do more of these for his blog, so hold tight. And if you dig the Dance Hall riddims, keep it locked to BGDB - E is always dropping fresh tracks and videos. Holla!

Common "Go (K-Salaam & Beatnick Remix)"

Common "Go (K-Salaam & Beatnick Remix)": This is part 1 of K-Salaam & Beatnick's Common remixes project, S.T.O.R.Y. (Stories Told Over Remixed Years), which will be made available as a free download... soon? Word is they will be dropping one of these every week or so, so keep it locked for fresh takes on classic Common.

DivaSpeakTV: Episode 20

Bonus Beats: Amanda Diva "Heart Of The City" [via 2DB]

[video] The Theo Show (Episodes 3 & 4)

"Hanging With Skyzoo"

"Watching The Celtics Game"

Word is a new Theo-related leak will be dropping next week... keep it locked!

Roche ft. Pugslee Atomz & Wes Restless "Only When I Dream"

Roche ft. Pugslee Atomz & Wes Restless "Only When I Dream": Bit of a different vibe on this one; I love the piano work on this one. Sounds so simple but it's damn hypnotic. This is from the forthcoming Solos Records compilation, Solos In Stereo II, which drops in July. Definitely be on the lookout for it.

Vast Aire "The Man With Out Fear"

Vast Aire "The Man With Out Fear": From Deuces Wild, which drops on June 24th. I am really impressed by the tracks I've heard - sounds like a solid project!

Big up for the track(s), Matt!

Warning Shot Wednesday: "Calling Me"

Spec Boogie ft. Von Pea, Elucid & Cyren Young "Calling Me": We aren't normally blessed with TWO Warning Shots, but it looks like we got a pair of fly ass posse cuts today. "Calling Me" is an epic that needs to be heard... deeper concepts in this one, and almost 6 and a half minutes of what the fuck you need to be hearing. Loosie, bitch!

[video] Angie Martinez Interviews Nas

I could listen to Angie talk all day. I used to crush on her back in the day.

[video] Jah-C "Soul Banger"

Dope new video I just got passed exclusively from the one like Koncept, who hit me with this message to all of the people:

Check out the video for “Soul Banger”, the debut, self-produced single from the Brooklyn born & Harlem bred Producer/M.C. extraordinaire, Jah-C (of The Project). This is the lead single from The Soul Banger EP, which is to be released towards the end of this summer on Coalmine Records.

Interesting track here. Sounds like my get-live anthem for the summer! Shouts to Koncept and all Coalmine crew.

Three 6 Mafia Last 2 Walk Cover+Tracklist

Set to drop on June 24th, Three 6 Mafia's latest has been super delayed, but judging by their current single ("Lolli Lolli"), they are looking to get back on the radio and in the clubs. Check out the tracklist:

I just got passed a snippet of this album, and it's the shit. Definitely check it out, and be on the lookout for this release on June 24th via iTunes.

Warning Shot Wednesday: "Lessondary Nose"

Von Pea, Elucid, Che Grand & Spec Boogie "Lessondary Nose": This week's Warning Shot features Elucid alongside his Lessondary fam, flipping some intricate flows over N.E.R.D.'s "Everyone Nose", well, "Everyone Nose" x some dope piano/percussion additions. No hook is necessary, this is Lessondary.

[video] Lil' Wayne Thanks You

Lil' Wayne has posted this vlog to thank his fans for buying Tha Carter III, but spends a bunch of time speaking about some book drive??:

That nigga doing 1 million is crazy to me. End of days?

Cy Yung "Dreamcatcher Revisited" CDS

I recall telling you guys a few things... one was that the BPA crew is the future, another was that Cy Yung & J. Slikk were working on a project entitled Soul Train Dancer: A Tribute to Rosie Perez. Well, both comments are combined into this post, as I bring you the official first single from that project, "Dreamcatcher Revisited". Fans of classic Hip-Hop will not be disappointed, and for those of you who wanna play sample spotter, yes Slikk definitely flipped that Christopher Williams in the chorus, and it fits so perfectly at that slowed down tempo. If that isn't "new jack" enough for you, Slikk then created a whole New Jack Swing Remix of "Dreamcatcher Revisited", making a nigga feel like he was watching Strictly Business or some shit. They've also included a special B-side on this single.

Cy Yung "Dreamcather Revisited" (prod. by J. Slikk)

And it's all free. Seriously. Download this, then go put on the following movies: Do The Right Thing, White Men Can't Jump and New Jack City. Then try to convince me that Black cinema is so much better today than it was then. Classic movies, classic concepts and today, classic Hip-Hop inspired by all of that. BPA, niggas. I'm trying to tell y'all!

I dedicate this one... to Tina!

Where my dogs at? Oh, he right here. Enigmatik and I have been trying to come up with a hook to revisit the Boom vs. dub soundclash from episode 010; he sent a dope mix to my inbox, and I had to come up with a dope answer. His LA loss predicition on his side (word to 'Pac) didn't come to fruition last night, but the mixes are dope anyways, with a boatload of new music to bug out to at home, at work or wherever you are when this is hitting you.
