Redman x Scion AV "I Hold The Crown" Remixes

I'm slightly on tilt from this 40, but if I was smoking trees, I'd look like Redman in the above pic. Seeing as its Saturday night, I figured why not throw some club music out to the massive. Redman and Scion A/V teamed up for their latest remix project; his "I Hold The Crown" has been twisted and ran through many processors, producing a crazy trip for the heads out there who can't get enough. Check out these three remixes, get the party started right.

Shouts to WDIR for the link.

Friction "OMG"

Friction "OMG" (prod. by Cooley High): Here's a thought-provoking cut from this Strong Island representer, Friction. Dude's topics are all over the place, but his flow weaves everything together. Sit back and marinate on his lines for a minute, rewind if you have to...

Drop It Like It's Hot

I'm battling a bit of a cold right now, and they always say you should force fluids... so I went to the liquor store after putting my son down for the night and copped a 40 of Olde English, because in these recession-plagued times, nothing beats a night of malt liquor for under $3.

As I left the spot, I saw this parked car with a chick blasting Juvenile's "Back That Azz Up". You remember this late '90s ode to thick booties, right?

Now, I'm not posting this to throw this soundtrack to Cash Money malarky just for sport; I started thinking of those Cash Money/Ruff Ryders tours from around that time, and seeing those ho's shaking their asses in packed stadiums, like so:

I love how most niggas will be drinking water during the shoes - nah, Cash Money Millionaires had full plastic cups of they favorite brews. You gotta love ignorance on a bankroll. Those Clinton years were SERIOUS for the Hip-Hop ballers, weren't they?

Fall Out Boy ft. VA "America's Suitehearts (Remix)"

Fall Out Boy ft. Joe Budden, 88-Keys & Murs "America's Suitehearts (Remix)": Why can't line-ups like this happen more often, and on better tracks?

Shouts to The Real for this one.

Icadon "Turn My Twitter On"

Icadon "Turn My Twitter On": LOL; Ic goes in over Soulja Boy's latest, giving use twitter-freaks an anthem we can bump both at the desk, as well as in the whip! Anywhere your twitter is, you need this on.

Robot-ic is out now!

Jay-Z ft. Diddy "Maybe"

Jay-Z ft. Diddy "Maybe" (prod. by Sean C & LV): The NMC leaked a tagged version of this yesterday, but I see Nah Right's thrown up the tagless version. Word is this was made during the American Gangster sessions, but was never a Hov track - it was a demo for Diddy; it was just the first time Jigga dealt with Sean C & LV.

Big S.I.N Mind Of A Mad Man Vol. 2

I told you niggas this one was coming; S.I.N's next installment of his Mind Of A Mad Man mixtape series is here, and its FIRE! Mixed by DJ Birdstick & DJ MVG, this tape features S.I.N going for his over classic instrumentals right alongside a host of new, original material. He also sent me a leak from his forthcoming Mad Man Music album, but I'll hold off on that until Monday...

Here's another project I'm behind; this is a collection of cuts from the homey Dulu that didn't find a home, or never came out where they were supposed to be. Mixture of fresh stuff and older stuff, and its all quality. Dude's got talent behind the boards, with a host of ill MCs backing it as well.

Keep your eyes peeled for homeboy.

DJ Class ft. Kanye West "I'm The Shit (Remix)"

DJ Class ft. Kanye West "I'm The Shit (Remix)": Looks like that Bmore shit is catchin' wreck in the Hip-Hop blogosphere... well, not really. But when Kanye jumps on anything, its an event... right? I hit you with the Lil Jon-assisted remix, as well as the MIMS remix that Class jumped on, so I figured I might as well keep it moving. Good joint to throw on when you leave work on Friday afternoons. And hey, MissInfo loves it, too!

Props to Tiff at Brash PR for the 320kbps MP3!

Bonus Beats Birdman & Lil' Wayne "Always Strapped (Articulate 443mix)" (for those of you who can't get enough of the sound - big up to Artic!)

Elite Assembly "Caveman Boogie"

Elite Assembly "Caveman Boogie" (prod. by Deal - The Villain): Holy shit. Good things happen when you check your Spam folder. Shouts to C.I.O.N. from Brokn.Englsh for sending this cut to me. The Elite Assembly is a collective of niggas who are very rock the dub-centric - Brokn.Englsh, RewMec, Deal, Premium The Delegate and PreZZure; this cut only features Rew, B.E. and Deal. Expect more from EA (aka The Elite) in the near future... or be condemed to miss some of the flyest shit out there.

Juan Epstein (3/25/2009)

Here's a regular-old Juan Epstein, something we haven't gotten in a bit. Honestly, I got put on to Juan Epstein late (around the Latarian episode), and went back and grabbed every single episode, and listen to them on the regular. And while I love when they have guests (niggas like NORE, Fat Joe, Pete Rock, etc.), my personal favorites always involve Cipha Sounds & Peter Rosenberg just talkin' shit. This is one of those eps. Welcome back!

Revalation "This Is Hip-Hop"

Revalation ft. Mayhem & Praverb "This Is Hip-Hop" (prod. by Kenshin, cuts by DJ Family Tyz): Here's some United Nations of Hip-Hop shit; you've got Boston, North Carolina and Belgium all represented on one ode to what this music is about. This is taken from the forthcoming Street Communications mixtape, which is hosted by DJ TKO. Revalation also has a mixtape coming, The Revalation Will Be Televised, which will features this track, as well as cats like Sha Stimuli, M-Dot, XL, Alias and more!

The Niceguys "It's Like That"

The Niceguys "It's Like That": Enigmatik first put me onto these cats when he interviewed Yves Saint back last January. This four-man crew (Yves on the mic, DJ Candlestick and producers Christolph & Free) are both on the road and in the studio; their EP, The Show, is in the works, and should be a host of "performance records". Also be on the lookout for Yves' solo mixtape, Genuine Article.


Mike Maven "Amazing"

Mike Maven "Amazing": Here's an acoustic cover of Kanye West's "Amazing", passed to me by the homey 6th Sense. Word is him and 6th are in the studio working on new material, from hooks to full tracks I imagine; he should also be all over the Notherground SXSW recap videos. Keep it locked.

See Kanye, THAT'S how you do it!

Killah Priest The Eternal Thought of Killah Priest II

Damn druids love leaving treats on my doorstep. Here's the second Eternal Thought of Killah Priest EP to drop on RTD. Killah Priest was always one of my favorite Wu-Tang associates... remember his verse from "4th Chamber"? Tracks you need on this: "Essential" is just that; "Psychonistary Mystic Breath" is some abstract thinkin'; "I'm Back Again" is a dope "welcome back" joint. This whole thing is fresh.

Peace to the hooded druids with leaky faucets.

So often, we wake up listening to Hip-Hop, but I don't think I've seen a good compilation of strictly-"morning"-related Hip-Hop tracks. Well, Kevin Nottingham, Nappy Afro and Your Favorite White Boy threw this ill compilation together, including some of my favorites (Naughty By Nature's "Feel Me Flow", "Steppin To The AM", etc.) in a nice package. Grab this and be sure to start your day on the good foot...

"my style... raises eyebrows/you can't see son like I'm clouds"

That 2nd 16 is beastly, if I do say so myself. I got another one in the can that I'm gonna drop later on this week... hopefully a few more of these flow in. Peep the Cassie-less version below.

[video] Ciara ft. Justin Timberlake "Love Sex Magic"


One of the things I've always wanted to do was start up a label. I got the idea to start a digital imprint on my own because, realistically, I fuck with MP3s more than I do compact discs, and I imagine loads of heads are like me. My initial idea blossomed (with the help of the homey Jeryl), and now the first imprint of mine, RTDLTD, has just dropped its first release (distributed by the good folks over at Nu Urban Music)...

digital distribution via NUM

AA) Noah D "Mash Down"

Pure ragga-DnB vibes. I was trying to get Noah D linked up with another label, and it didn't come to fruition. Dude has TUNES, and I'm damn lucky to have gotten these been given these beats to release. I urge you to take a gander at those clips, and if you're feeling, cop the beats over at Nu Urban Music, iTunes, DNBA or from Digital Tunes ASAP. Support this release, I guarantee I'll have more fresh DnB (and other genres) out there for you. I've been working on a podcast to go along with this, should be ready very soon...

Shouts to Uriela for the wicked cover art. Any producers and artists trying to get tunes to me, hit me via e-mail or drop some beats into my SoundCloud dropbox.
EDIT Looks like "Mash Down" is #11 on Nu Urban Music's DnB MP3 Chart! Keep it climbin'!

Mally "Sky Lines"

Mally "Sky Lines": It's been a minute since I've posted some material from Mally; his version of saying "hey, how you been" is sending me an MP3 of him coasting over "Ignorant Shit". Watch out for The Passion, which is dropping in May, and is entirely produced by Mydus.

Big S.I.N "Kick In The Door Freestyle"

Big S.I.N "Kick In The Door Freestyle": Carolina's Mad Man puts his stamp on Biggie's "Kick In The Door" on this leak from Mind Of A Mad Man Vol. 2, which is set to drop in the near future. Expect a few more of these to bash you upside the head before full release...

Entity Starr Reach For The Starr, Vol. 1

My homegirl Entity Starr has a new beat tape for download:

A few weeks back I put up this post about some beats I was clearing out to sell. Well some tracks have been added to the list (and some have been removed because of purchases), and I also thought it would be a good idea to just put together a little beat tape for those who wanted to download and check out later. All beats are available on the tape (as of 3/22/09 1:45 p.m.) but I'm betting it won't stay that way for too long so don't hold out! Prices and agreements are included in the file so DOWNLOAD IT HERE now! Thanks for the love and support, more is definitely on the way.
