There's something about Lily Allen. She's not the most attractive, or the most talented, but she knows how to flip her talents into some really creative shit. Her forthcoming album, It's Not Me, It's You, drops on Feb. 10th, 2009, was recorded with producer George Kurstin (who produced "Everything's Just Wonderful", "Alfie" and "Not Big" from Alright, Still), and should be an interesting affair. Here's the tracklist:
1. Everyone's At It
2. The Fear
3. It's Not Fair
5. I Could Say
6. Go Back To the Start
7. Never Gonna Happen
8. Fuck You
9. Who'd've Known
12. He Wasn't There

Keyshia Cole ft. Lil' Wayne "I Love You": I told you guys last week that Keyshia was the new Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, and now she's out there reworking that classic Mary J. shit. I'm not hella fond of the way they Dirty South'd the beat, and Weezy can go (you are not Grand Puba, homey), but homegirl can blow.

25. Ripside Feat. Jax (Binkis Recs) - R.I.P.
Swagger is definitely nothing. Let's dead that term in '09.
Busta Rhymes ft. T.I. & Reek Da Villain "We Rollin'": Something about when Busta and Tip link up, they come with some fresh shit... well, "Cannon" was the truth! They collide again, this time with that nigga Reek, over a headnodder. This isn't going to be played all day on MTV Jams, but this is that heavy album cut that niggas will be like "yeah, I know they pop shit is wack, but did you hear track 15?!!? FI-YER!"
Shouts to BoBO, who says they got a hot hand that ain't done yet...
8thW1 & Fresh Daily ft. Silent Knight "Peace": I hit you guys with "Song of Random Thoughts" last week, and the homey 8th hit me up last night with a new, featuring fellow AOK member Fresh Daily and Loud.com finalist Silent Knight. Meka says that this is produced by Illmind, which is just making this more of a beautiful Monday banger.
Lethal Bizzle "Pop Champagne (Remix)": Don't ask how I got this, just accept it for what it is: UK MC Lethal Bizzle getting his over the "Pop Champagne" instrumental. He actually out-does Ron Browz over his own track.
Word is this was to be an exclusive for a few heavy hitters, but someone this one fell loose. Grab it before it's ghost!
Some fresh Electro/Hip-Hop hybrid sound, but its more on the boom-bap side of things. Lots of ill synths, as well as fun-loving vibes. Check out more on this duo via their MySpace page. St. Louis is on some SHIT!
Bonus Beats Scripts 'N Screwz "Big City Lights"
Bonus Beats Scripts 'N Screwz "Brick (Remix)"
Mavado ft. Foxy Brown "So Special (Remix)": Mavado's toasting over the "unfinished business" riddim has, along with Serani's "No Games", been getting LOADS of burn in the NYC area. Fox Boogie steps up and adds her gun-clappin' patois to this undeniable banger, turning the heat up past boiling point...

I've been on this M.O.P. kick, and remember "Ante Up" being my shit. I remember the first time hearing the remix, I believe it was Funkmaster Flex cutting up the "BUSTA RHYMES NOW, M.O.P. NOW" to pieces; I was in the back of this chicks van, pounding beers on the highway up to New York to go see DJ Craze, Grooverider, Twisted Individual and a bunch of other DnB DJs go for theirs at the Roseland Ballroom...
M.O.P ft. Busta Rhymes, Remy Martin & Teflon "Ante Up (Remix)"
Shouts to BoomBoxxMixtape. Enjoy your weekend, fam-o.
My homey DJ Cable just put me on to the "Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes" dance, which is some shit you do the a K.I.G. & DJ Dexter cut of the same name:
An hour or 2 before that, Enigmatik hit me with some super-rememdial nonsense called "Da Stanky Legg":
The sad thing is, these cats are so serious. I know its all about having fun, but must people look like douches while they do these dances?!
This is the first single from Lily Allen's forthcoming It's Not Me, It's You CD, which is out Feb. 10th, 2009. "The Fear" hits iTunes on December 9th. Here's the tracklist for the album:
1. Everyone's At It
2. The Fear
3. It's Not Fair
5. I Could Say
6. Go Back To the Start
7. Never Gonna Happen
8. Fuck You
9. Who'd've Known
12. He Wasn't There
Memphis Bleek ft. Freeway "Keep Backing 'Em Down": The two niggas to the right of the above picture go IN over this old school "OW! YEAH" cut. I'm feeling this off the rip; its one of those cuts that would get rewound instantly. Really bouncy beat, I could see this one getting burn in the street, at least for a few weeks. To be honest, Bleek is his usual self (read: not saying much), and I'm guessing Freeway's "contribution" is that looped "keep backin' dem down!" in the hook, but so be it.
Shouts to BoBO.
Maroon 5 "Secret (Premier 5 Remix)" (prod. by DJ Premier): My wife rarely reads my blog. She'll pop in from time to time when something interests her, but I don't think rock the dub is in her daily website searches. I bet she'd be into this one, though. She fucks with Maroon 5, heavy. I actually got into their first album from hearing her rinse it from time to time. This chilled Preemo remix, taken from their forthcoming Call And Response: The Remix Album release (which drops December 9th), reminds me of Christina Aguilera's Back To Basics album, as well as the 90's Premier that would randomly remix shit from N'Dea Davenport. Really loving that they let him drop a hard snare in there, as well as having him do so many cuts on the decks. This is my shit for the weekend, trust.
Shouts to DJ Premier Blog for this one.
Bonus Beats Maroon 5 ft. The Cool Kids "Harder To Breathe (Remix)" [via h.e.r.]
Junclassic "Tha Morning" (prod. by Sir K): Here's a butter-smooth banger from Junclassic's 2010 LP, The Hope Business. Now I know what you're saying, "damn, 2010?!?"; yes, that's a year plus away, but don't fret, I know for a FACT that Jun has fire lined up for 2009, which you will be seeing dropped via BPA, Flawess Hustle and other spots. So don't fret. And make sure you blow this up over on HipHopDX!

The homies over at Metal Lungies posted up the next edition of their Beat Drop series, this time focusing on Pimp C's production (which doesn't get anywhere near the amount of props it deserves). I didn't get in on this one (I wish I could write more than I do now), but cats like Noz, Ivan and the mighty Bun B. It's a great read; check it out, and put on some of that old UGK today.

Mick Boogie is in the bomb position. He's very hot right now - hot to the point that whomever he's associated with is at least on people's lips by association. Lucky for Bronx MC D-Black, he can spit, and has a talent group of people who helped bang out his New Black City mixtape (which is mixed by Mick Boogie and DJ Woof, has production from Illmind, Khrysis and Nottz, with features from MCs like Skyzoo, Chaundon, Rapper Big Pooh and others). Sleep is the cousin of death, so don't body yourself by skipping on this tape. Shouts to Matik for the heads up.
Shouts to Fluke Beat Ent. for posting this FREE mixtape from Joker Starr entitled Raw Spittage Volumes; it features RTD friend Genesis Elijah, Skankman, Estelle, Sway and a host of other heads from the UK. Word is dude has an album on the horizon, so treat this as a delicious appetizer for the mayhem to come!
The 247HH.com fam hit me with this new mixtape, done up for the forthcoming release of Common's new album, Universal Mind Control. A lot of new tracks are thrown together with some fan favorites and other featured work. Dope mix.

DJ Trackstar's last Boogie Bang was #15, which dropped back in August. Come December, he drops #16 (which you can download here); Wafeek plays the host, and the two go IN, with hot tracks from artists like Eminem, Scarface, Joell Ortiz, Termanology, Killer Mike and Wafeek himself. Don't play yourself by not grabbing this one...

Streetmedia "$ Orientated": Streetmedia is a North Cali duo comprised of Ammbush + ELS, and flip that quality Hip-Hop for the people. "$ Orientated" has that real haunting, spooky vibe, with a real aggressive feel, like when Prodigy and The Alchemist link up. This is the first single off their debut, self-titled album, so if you like this, know that there's more where it came from!
Shouts out to John the TROUBLMan for the heads up.
Emynd just posted this on Crossfaded Bacon, and I had to post. Looks like the mighty DJ Ayers goes IN with Young Jeezy's best, from album cuts to features and everything in between.

J-Zone & Chief Chinchilla are back from their two-month hiatus, which they spent promoting Live @ The Liqua Sto (which you can grab off of iTunes), but due to the US officially being in a recession, and their normal infighting, this MIGHT be the last GATOR$-n-FUR$ Mixshow! Make sure you grab this, early, and pray that they continue on...
I was just listening to Cipha Sounds speak on how offensive the new remix of Busta's "Arab Money" is, saying that he heard it at the Akon album release party (brought to you by MySpace Music) last night, and I see the JUMPOFF.tv niggas already have video up:
8thW1 "Song of Random Thoughts": Browns Mills' own 8thW1 hit me with this and said he hopes I "like this enough to post it", as if I haven't been waiting for more of his fire to grace this site! The lyrics are exactly what the title says, but with a beat this lush, and rhymes that deep, you get lost in the poetic essence. Or just vibe to that ill shit. New Jersey in the house.
For those, like me, who slept on his Crazy 8's mixtape, you can still grab it over at lovemoneyandmusic.com.
01. T-Pain Feat. Kardinal Offishall & Lil Wayne - Can't Believe It (Remix)

Sunday 7th Dec: The Gallery (York)
Catch the selekta doing his thing!
Foals ft. Theo "Electric Boom" (prod. by Santo Angelo): This is the latest track from Theo's Channel Surfin' series. Really noisey, true rock the dub style. I don't think you guys are ready. Theo also told me he has a track on stash that I want to hear. Damn I hate waiting for good music...
This mix came about mad piecemeal. Two weeks ago, I had the mix from tracks 6-24 done. I then finished the tail-end and added an intro this past Black Friday, with a 40 of OE and no direction. I don't think anyone cares, but I think it came out kind of ill. I threw a few comedic interludes in there for no good reason. I think I'm gonna do a special show with no rapping but mad beats. Soon come. Probably sometime in Jan. 2009...

Don't ask why I threw some of these tracks in here. My flavors go haywire when that Olde English is in me.
Big Kuntry King ft. T.I. vs. Reform "Throwback (DJ Nappy Extended THUGSTEP Refix)": This was initially leaked on the THUGSTEP Extensions pack, but after the recent Dirty Awards fiasco, I had to flip something for the Grand Hustle fam. Are you slangin' Joe Montana? What about that Hershel Walker? If you on that grind, I think you should be. This Reform beat is bananas... I've seen heads get entranced by that bass. Dope vibes for a dope track.
DJ Nappy is on twitter, too. Keep up, slowpokes!
Jay-Z ft. Santogold "Brooklyn (Go Hard)" (prod. by Kanye West): Eskay says this is set to drop on the Notorious soundtrack. This isn't horrendous by any means, but I think one of two things:
- when Kanye isn't musing on unlocked-down love, he's flipping hipster chick vocals over marching drums (and going to the well twice in this vein isn't really a great look), and
- Jay-Z needs to not feed into that fake patois shit. I know this is supposed to be on the Biggie movie soundtrack, but damn...
All in all, Jigga actually saves this one. If this was Max B over the same instrumental? CD gets thrown out the window.
PS hey Jay, why don't you go hard (pause) for the Nets and sign Lebron when he's a free agent!?!?!?

Oh No "Lay You Out" (prod. by Oh No): It looks like, to celebrate the HD remastering of Street Fighter II for the Xbox & Playstation networks, there's been a Street Fighter Underground Remix mixtape put together.
