Mike Classic When It's Playoff Mode Mixtape

Queens, NY's Mike Classic hit me with this mixtape, When It's Playoff Mode, around Halloween, and I finally got a chance to peruse through it, and you know what? Dude got some flavor to him. He really attacks the mic, and does it with some ill rhymes. The beats on this one will knock in your whips as well (loads of original production, too). Grab this one and bang out.

Both Nice "What Kinda" (Week 5)

Both Nice "What Kinda": 6th says it best... "This week gets a little darker. We're setting a mood with this one. Features some nice guitar work by Joey Angerone (he directed the EPK). Enjoy your weekend."

previous Both Nice "AM Set" (Week 4)

Infamous "Lyrical Exercise 2008"

Joe Budden ft. The Game "The Future"

Joe Budden ft. The Game "The Future": I decided to stop playing Fight Night 3 for this? Lyrically, Joey and Jayceon do their thing, but this beat has to go, I'm sorry. I'm really not feelin' that shit. I can only hope there's a nasty remix of this brewing... first single off of Padded Room, eh? Christ, talk about disappointment...

Shouts to the fam for passing this new tape to me. They got DJ Wicked Prince and E-40 to link up and drop a serious primer to 40's forthcoming LP, The Ball Street Journal, which drops on Nov. 24th. A grip of exclusive remixes and blends, as well as some fresh new cuts ("The Recipe" is a beast) litter this tape, and might just be that tape to get you going. Download this monster right now.

Illogic "One Bar Left" (prod. by Ill Poetic): Here's a preview of Illogic's One Bar Left EP, which will be coming out for free from the good folks at Weightless on November 25th (you can also cop the EP, and that pack will include instrumentals). I believe Ill Poetic will be handling the beats for that, as well as Illogic's Diabolical Fun album, which is set to drop in the Spring of 2009.

Roc Raida is a legend on the decks, and with Sadat X & Diamond D getting in on this? Should be a great night! And for those who haven't seen the video...

Starkey "Pressure"

Starkey "Pressure": I had a project going on, asking Starkey for some beats, and he told me he was saving all of his material for a forthcoming Planet Mu album. I was excited to hear that, because not only is Starkey one of my favorite producers, but Planet Mu is one of the best leftfield imprints out there. This one is for the NOISEY crew out there. Ephemeral Exhibits is set to drop on Monday, apparently.

GLC ft. Kanye West "Big Screen"

GLC ft. Kanye West "Big Screen": From the homey Andrew himself is this official CDQ version of what many feel is a curveball. Many are feeling like, while this is dope, it doesn't really fit GLC. I mean, I'm on the fence right now - I love that cool beat, but I don't feel the hook. GLC does his thing but it feels a bit too aggressive in delivery, and I don't like those random high-pitched rantings in the background. I'll have to sit on this one. From the forthcoming Negro League Soundtrack, whatever that is. That GLC's album or something? Info, please!

Cymarshall Law & Mr. Joeker "Love, Sex Or What"

Cymarshall Law & Mr. Joeker "Love, Sex Or What": Aubrey just slid this album cut over to me, and gave the OK for you Hip-Hop junkies to partake. This of course is taken from Hip Hop In The Soul (which is out now on CD as well as for digital download), and for those of you who missed out on the CD Giveaway, you snoozed and lost! Props to Cy being added to MySpace Music's page as well - that's a big look, fam!

Prinz Links Up With Gallic Wars

I just got word that Prinz, Black Hand Entertainment and the good folks over at Gallic Wars have linked up to have Gallic Wars put in some serious work for Prinz. Check the press release:

Black Hand Entertainment has entered into an agreement with Gallic Wars to launch a digital marketing campaign for Black Hand artist Prinz the Pistoleer. The agreement, spearheaded by company owner 'Caesar", will strengthen his presence off and on the internet. Prinz is still a Blackhand recording artist. This new agreement is only a marketing package which is geared to increase the awareness of Prinz and garner the attention of the music world.

A continuation of "Poverty Breeds Crime" mixtape series will be launched catering towards his gritty street fanbase and real hip hop fans. Gallic Wars is a entertainment company specializing in artist, producer & model management & marketing.

"I am glad to be working with Prinz and his Black Hand family. We embrace his musical talents and his sheer authenticity. We are very fortunate to experience the music of one who is the true biproduct of his environment and can articulate his experiences on a level most artists can't. Prinz time is now."
- Caesar, Founder & CEO of Gallic Wars

This should be a good look for all parties involved; Prinz is definitely getting the looks online already, from his feature in the "Like Ohh" video being dropped on numerous sites, as well as his own "Gun Talk" video. Gallic Wars is holding it down on the mixtape side (I'll be dropping that Gallic Wars heat whenever they get some new ish off). And you all should be aware of Black Hand's steelo. That's a dangerous trio... and I'll be here to drop all of their tapes and other info when I get it.

Junclassic "The Ooh Ahh" [snippet]

Junclassic "The Ooh Ahh" (prod. by J. Slikk) [snippet]: Jun and Slikk link up to speak on short girls with big knockers. I used to fuck this chick back in my one year of college; she was short and had big knockers. It's definitely fun. And can be funny looking. In any case, here's another snippet from Jun's forthcoming BPA EP. I know you niggas ain't still sleepin', are you? URB sure isn't; they've got the homey Jun in the running for their Next 1000.

Profane "Time Passes"

Profane "Time Passes": Canada's Profane is a cat I've gotten to know over the last month. Really talented producer. I initially got into his DnB work from dubs in random mixes over the last year, and he actually approached me to do some writing for his Digital Wreka imprint. What I love about his work is that, whether its DnB or Hip-Hop, dude keeps that Soul right in your face. Really keen Hip-Hop aesthetic when it comes to the samples, too, as you can see with this free cut, "Time Passes". Watch how the chopped vocals, hell, the chops in general, evolve over the life of the track. Any MCs down to hop on this?

The Spook Who Sat By The Door OST

For those who know Black Cinema, whether its Blaxploitation or movies made FUBU, The Spook Who Sat By The Door might have slipped by them. Makes sense - the film was pulled from theaters, and didn't see a proper DVD release until 2004. Telling the story of a Black man who became the first Black CIA agent, then, after realizing that shit ain't gonna change, takes those learned traits and creates a band of revolutionaries, this film was (wrongly) accused ofo being a riot-inducing anti-establishment flick, and ended up being pulled from distribution after the first week it came out in '73. I read the book a decade ago, and it helped me realize that revolutions start from the inside. I (finally) saw the movie about 2 years ago, and while it was mad ghetto, it was raw, especially considering the budget they were working with. Plus, the fact that Herbie Hancock did the score was the icing on the cake. This is that Head Hunters-era twisted funk jazz fusion style, which got me open around the time I first read this.

In any case, my homey Che Grand said he was happy to find a track from the flick, and I realized, shit, I've had the soundtrack sitting on my harddrive ever since I saw the movie. Figured, its been 35 years, someone needs to liberate this. So I did. I also included a 58 second radio spot I found for this one. Some ill sample sources (shit, I think Hive and crew flipped this on the Welcome To Violence album) as well. Enjoy.

This edit is the first cut to leak from that tape (which is et , and it's a nasty Club edit, flippin' E-40's latest single into a nasty, gutter jam.

Grizzly's rhymes? Eloquent ignorance. Intelligent and flavorful, dude knocked this one out of the park. If you guys are in the NY area Nov. 19th, make sure to check out Che Grand, Amanda Diva and Blitz the Ambassador (with live bands!) at the Knitting Factory.

[video] Diddy On Real Time

Ashley Dupre x Diane Sawyer

Ashley Dupre, AKA Elliot Spitzer's high-priced coochie, will be getting interviewed by Diane Sawyer on 20/20 this Friday, during their series on prostitution. As if I didn't already have a shitload of shows to watch on the DVR (hell, I've got like 4 weeks of Chuck to indulge in). No word on how much of the interview will be on the event that got a nigga elected as NY governor, but who cares. I'm watching.

PS Damn, 2008 has been good to niggas in politics, eh?
