Via Different Kitchen by way of Get Right Music.
For no good reason, Diddy is in the studio, working on a new album:
Around 1:05?!?!? That beat is fucking ridiculous! I'm sorry. The sad thing is, Diddy is gonna piss on the track and make it stale. That could be some seriously monumental shit. Beats like that make me wish BIG was still here...

I've been reading a shitload of Ice Cube interviews about his new movie, but I wanna hear some old Cube...
Ice Cube "Jackin' 4 Beats"
Enjoy the long weekend!
What do you think about McCain's choice of Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska? She was a hottie back in the day, right?!?!?
Kind of ironic that she has less experience than Barack Obama does...
Shouts to Enigmatik for that Cafferty link, and for Perpetuum for saying the exact same shit like an hour before I saw this...
DJ Babu ft. M.O.P. "Dearly Departed": Beat Junkie DJ Babu has the third volume of his Duck Season series dropping October 28th, and if this cut is definitely a choice tune. Never thought I'd see the day where the Mo P's would be linked up with one of my favorite tablists!
Shouts to Matt for the info!
This song is apart of the Democratic campaign and it is prequel material to Chubb Rock & Wordsmith's "Bridging the Gap" Album Coming Soon!!! Look for numerous short movies from both artists leading up to their album dropping.
Shouts to Wordsmith for hitting me with this. Good to see Chubb Rock still doing the damn thing, especially for a positive cause.
EDIT: I've updated this with the full version, which didn't come over all the way previously...
Three dons dropping some monumental shit in the booth:
Rukus "Amnesia (Intro)": Rukus has done done it; he's gone and leaked the intro to his recently released album, Can't Forget (which I STILL need to find the time to review - my bad, bro). And it's sick...
This may be a little untraditional, but I wanted to leak the intro of my CD ("Amnesia") out to the masses. For all the people that don't know who the heck Rukus is, what the new album "Can't Forget" is about, and just want to hear something different...I think they can get a taste of that with this leak. Its loud, different, and real. I'm tired of doing freestyles...I want people to hear songs, messages, and music with meaning...I feel like most artists are just rhyming words right now. But what are they trying to do...its more than music to me. My album is about not forgetting where you came from, where you're going and what you're trying to achieve. - RUKUS
Do you want more? Go grab the CD, NOW!
Sugar Tongue Slim "Demand More Freestyle #9": STS is back again with a fresh one (over Jay-Z's "People Talking" instrumental), as well as a host of news: first, the Demand More mixtape is being completed; it's being hosted by Tapemasters Inc, The Empire and illRoots.com. Fresh! He wil also be featured on the forthcoming DOOMED project, and MASTERPIECE (illRoots x Mr. X x Dub Floyd), as well as Naledge's Braniac Society Vol. 1. Do I need to start up a mixtape so he can get on it? If a DJ would wanna do a RTD mixtape for free, let a nigga know!
One should also know that STS' "Magic Man" is in the top 10 for the Motorola ROKR Emerging Artist Challenge (vote here), where the winner will receive a professional video from the one like Dan The Man. Vote now!
Black Swan Wine & Notherground put together a phat art/music show up in NYC recently. Artists on hand included Jelani, 6th Sense, Wildabeast, Che Grand and others, and looks like a dope event:
TSS was there, and has a dope article about it up.
Bonus Beats: 6th Sense ft. Naledge "I Wanna Tell Ya (Remix)"
Black ELement "Presidential Paradise" (prod. by BBoySpaz): As is now standard for these Missing EL's, let Black tell you a lil about this cut right here:
"Whenever I had a bad day as a kid, like any other child I would drift away into my own fantasy world where everything I wanted was available to me. I revisit that world of total freedom and no limits as a adult, where I'm in charge and there are no rules. If I was on a island and could take a few things..."
I wish I was in a fantasy world right NOW! Lovin' the track. You can also catch Black spittin' a slick 16 for 2ManyMCs.com.

EDIT: OnSMASH comes through with another one (shouts to Enigmatik for the heads up). Eskay threw a new one up as well! EDIT: Shake just posted the intro!
Burt Fox "RiotControl Theme" [.mp3 \ .wav]: Been waiting (read: begging Burt Fox) for this tune for the last few months, and he's finally sorted it out. This is the theme you hear at the beginning of the RiotControl NYC podcasts. Just that deep, heavy vibe. Lovin' that sub, loving the whole moody, merky feel of it. Strictlyhedphonesecks.
Illa J "We Here" (prod. by J Dilla) [mirror]: James Yancey's younger brother's Yancey Boys LP should be coming, and this smooth cut is just the tip of the iceberg. I can't wait to hear Dilla's lil brother rhyming over nothing but Dilla beats. That's some beauty right there. Props to Delicious Vinyl for putting this project out.
Word is that Kim Kardashian, alongside Toni Braxton, Warren Sapp, Susan Lucci, Misty May-Treanor, Brooke Burke and others, have made the lineup for the latest season of Dancing With The Stars. I know you perverts will be tuning in this year...
Black ELement "(Oh Shit We Goin...) Down!?!?" (prod. by Ryan Durkin): Black EL wants you to ponder the following... "You ever wonder what your last moments would be like on a crashing plane? What or who would you do?"... this track is sort of the answer for that question. Dude is coming at it from a different angle, y'all - pay attention!
Articulate "Black Zombie 2008": On this interesting track, Baltimore head Articulate flips Nas' "Black Zombie" and Janelle Monae's "Sincerly, Jane" along side of his own bars. The theme of the track definitely fits with the instrumental... what do you think of this?

Parts 2-4 are on the way. I'll keep you posted.
I, like many heads last night, got a copy of "S.L.U. (Swagger Like Us)", the enormous joint from T.I.'s forthcoming Paper Trail LP that features Kanye West, Jay-Z and Lil' Wayne. I even posted the joint up... for like 5 minutes. When the cat who sends me something gets a C&D, I tend to retreat. So you won't find the post/link on rock the dub... for now.
In any case, Tip is asking who leaked the track. And I can't blame him. But I haven't heard one blogger or fan who heard it and said it was some bullshit. Quite the contrary, everyone is loving how these 4 beast this epic track. None of us even have 1/16th of the paper these niggas have (well, I don't), but this is one of those joints, like Rick Ross' "Hustlin'", that you throw on and that immediate response is required. And 9 times out of 10, the response is "holy fucking shit this track is the truth". You throw it on, and you get to poke your chest out for 5+ minutes and feel like you too have so much money, your knots can't fit in tight pants.
Maybe I'm just getting a bit too poetic about the most recent ghetto anthem.
One thing I am NOT feeling is the idea that this joint will be featured on Paper Trail and Blueprint 3. Seriously, Jay, that's your fuck up. BP3 should be your return to form, not you slackin' and putting out tracks that will be released a few months before your next event album.
You gotta love how I hipped you to a slew of Master 3 material, and he hits me with his album in the inbox this morning like "give it out". Yes, this album, and the bonus disc, are FREE!

Enjoy this, and let me know what you think!
On the 21st of August, Red Bull held their "Big Tune" beat making competition out in Chicago. I got an anonymous e-mail from a head who was at the venue that night, speaking about some suspect fuckery that went down that night. I'll quote them throughout this piece. Here's the start of it:
...something wasn't right last night... there's supposed to be 12 producers in the battle... before 9pm (they) only had 10 so they went out into the crowd waiting outside to find 2 cats that had beats on em... they found two.. one, a production duo that they didn't give too much of a shit about... THEN a young energetic but shy kid (about 17) named Rob Bates... Now dont get me wrong, Bates did his thing and we were all VERY proud of the kid, but there is reason to believe he was set up to win. They sent the final 2 contestants to New York.... C-Sick and Rob Bates... Both dope... dope enough? im not too sure to be good and honest...they grab producers out the crowd to fill every year, but again this wasn't right. here's what went down... about a half hour before the show, i was standing in the green room and the coordinators of the event were sitting there talking and bullshittin like i wasn't even there. They start talking about the two producers that end up filling the last two spots.. but emphasize on Rob Bates for the duration of the conversation... that's when i heard something that im not entirely sure was meant for my ears. one coordinator said to the other AND I QUOTE "you know it sure would be a hell of a crowd pleaser if Bates came off the street and took this thing"... there was a pause, dude smiled and they started laughing... at this point thinking nothing of it, i left and went back outside... ut once we got going something was definitely wrong... 3 of the STRONGEST producers... the 3 producers that didn't sound like replicas of the other 9 were ALL eliminated within the first fifteen minutes. the first fifteen minutes dog! i started to be concerned. basically they seemingly knocked them out in order to make it a bit of an easier road for Bates to dominate a crop of producers he could easily dominate... he WASNT challenged... all his competition was the same.. they all sounded like southern replicas... C-Sick also had his moments; J-Slikk, Tall Black Guy and J-Rell woulda given them fits in the finals...
Sounds kind of wild, right? Like, you ever watch pro wrestling, where some cat is seemingly picked out of the audience and thrown into a match, only to win (ala Santino Marella's entry into the WWE)? Sounds kind of like that; the e-mail goes further, though:
the winner is judged solely on "crowd participation"... so when the three producers that shoulda competed throughout the evening were knocked out... it MAY not have been the case. the crowd was louder for all 3 of them... it was close so they had them scream again... in all 3 cases the db level for them was slightly louder but the challenger was awarded the win... and ANOTHER thing... one of the coordinators was all in the camera for his interview with him big uppin' Bates like crazy. He didn't do that with any others. its also funny how, the red bull staff was on everyone's nuts for two days... soon as you were eliminated they wouldn't even look in their direction. bates was just really there to pass out fliers for the Pac Div show next weekend... he just so happened to have a beat CD on him...
So what say you? Definitely sounds like some suspect fuckery goings on at this event to hype up the NY show...
So Obama's picked Joe Biden. Not really who I was thinking he'd choose, nor who I think is the right choice, but this cat is 65 - if you're dissing on McCain for being old, why pick this 65 year old dude? I guess it's to bolster the "experience" factor for the Democratic ticket.
Prodigy "Stop Stressin'" (prod. by Sid Roams & Benny Needles): BGDB, who is up for BEst Hip-Hop and Best Music Blogs over at the Black Weblog Awards (vote now!), threw up an exclusive in the form of this tagged version of Prodigy "Stop Stressin'", forthcoming on that Product Of The 80's release. Damn this is fresh. Some straight classic shit.
