[video] Flo Rida "Sugar"

D-Man "You, Me, Him & Her"

D-Man "You, Me, Him & Her": Brockton, Mass.' own D-Man hit me with a couple of joints, and dude has potential. "I son rhymers, and take kids to school like bus drivers". What you think of these?

Bonus Beats D-Man "88MPH"

Mike Classic "Intoxicated"

Mike Classic "Intoxicated": Been a minute since I've heard new M Classic tracks, so this is definitely welcomed. You should know what this sounds like - that mid-tempo, laid-back flex, with a hint of that auto-tizzy. Dude coasts over it. Grab a bokkle of beer and throw this one on, yadig?

Boom Shottas 5.5

If you know me, you know I never leave my area. I stay home most of the time. I got the opportunity to fly out to LA for this, and I hopped on it - primarily for the STACKED DnB line-ups for both nights. I'm no raver - never was, but when you fuck with Drum & Bass like I do, you have to experience certain things:

Going to be my first plane ride since I was like 2 (!!), so it should be interesting.

Eminem "Chonkyfire Freestyle"

Eminem "Chonkyfire Freestyle": This is the Eminem I like to hear. Yeah, it's not really some deep, thought-provoking shit, but its got wild humor and CRAZY flows. "I got you slippin' on my swag juice, my swag juice"!?!!? Hilarious.

Splash has a few more freestyles from Eminem's recent appearance on Tim Westwood. YN has also posted a 30-minute interview Em did with Big Boy (BIG BOOOOOOOOY), for good or ill.

Dillinja "Acid Trak (Lemon D Remix)"

Dillinja "Acid Trak (Lemon D Remix)": I just posted my interview with Lemonde over on Dogs On Acid, and spoke a bit about my appreciation for him as a producer, and figured I had to show some example of his lethal tendencies pon de beats. Dude comes with the sick DnB riddims, all day. I can't wait for the Dillinja/Lemonde album - hopefully it drops this year!

Bonus Beats Lemon D "Give It To 'Em"

N.O.R.E. ft. DJ Webstar "So Hot"

N.O.R.E. ft. DJ Webstar "So Hot" (prod. by Dame Grease): When did Dame start producing tracks that sound like they Ether Boy abortions? Is it just me, or do you guys think the acclaim Noreaga got from his MSTRKRFT collabs got him in that dance-lane? Whatever it is, dude got a dope lane he working in right now.

Dub Rock All Stars ft. Monie Love "MC: Mind Control"

Dub Rock All Stars ft. Monie Love "Mind Control": The Dub Rock All Stars = Light and Mr. Man from Da Bush Babees. They get props for the name off the rip. Hell, these niggas need to do a mixtape for rockthedub! Anyways, those cats + the mighty Monie Love + a super bouncy, reggae-tinged beat? No contest. You can grab the entire single HERE (via Breukelen HiFi); shouts to DJ Mixx for this one - watch out for more fire from him, soon come!

Stagga "Terminator Remix"

Stagga "Terminator Remix": Shouts to the Chrome Kids for getting up with Stagga. I got passed this tune via e-mail; Stagga and Chrome Kids have an EP dropping soon entitled Staggamuffin, and on this EP there's a tune entitled "Determined". When Stagga heard about Goldie's disdain for people sampling/remixing his classic tunes (just ask Redeyes, he was the subject of infamous chatter a few years back, after remixing "Inner City Life"), Stagga flipped "Determined" and added bits from Goldie's classic "Terminator", and here you have it. Quality tune with a stern middle finger pon de air! Watch for Staggamuffin to drop on July 4th on Chrome Kids.

Cymarshall Law "Cymarshall's House"

Cymarshall Law "Cymarshall's House": I never listened to Nipsey Hussel's "Hussle In The House", but it sounds like a more gangster "Jump" by Kris Kross. Anyways, Cy rips through another beat. Stop acting brand new.

Theo Martins "Checkin' In"

Theo Martins "Checkin' In" (prod. by $port): I know he's just theo, but I have to call him Theo Martins. Peep this leak, and get ready for "Cloud 9".

SA Entertainment Mixtape Release Party (5/30/2009)

I randomly saw the above flyer laying on the ground on my way to work. Looks like CNN's Capone is going to be hosting this mixtape release party for Supreme Alliance Entertainment in Trenton, NJ at The Phoenix on May 30th. I hope the cats keep their clappers in the crib!

Show & Prove (5/21/2009)

Should be an ill event; or for more info!

Eminem's FIRST Video Interview (circa 1998)

Shouts to Matt at Coalmine for hitting me with this exclusive footage; this is some straight out the vaults shit, showcasing Eminem's FIRST video interview:

But a young spring chicken back in 1998, UGHH's CEO Quest tests the high waters of big things to come as he ventures into the bowels of the since extinct Club Hibernia in the heart of downtown Boston to garner attention for an website he was just beginning to develop at the time. Using his 8mm camera, the valiant young entrepreneur captures Eminem 10 years ago in the first video interview ever conducted with the then blossoming vanilla boy wonder. Tagged on to the end of this twelve minute time-capsule, a highly intoxicated Royce Da 5'9" accompanies Eminem in the basement of Boston's infamous Middle East nightclub to discuss the origins of "Bad Meets Evil", their collaboration for the then newly released "Slim Shady LP." Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg reminds Eminem of having met Quest / UGHH before the Slim Shady LP release in another section of the city, to which Eminem (whose ego has exponentially expanded) exclaims, "Before we were dicks. Now we're BIG DICKS!"

[video] Rick Ross ft. Masspike Miles "Cigar Music"

Tha Silent Partner The Platters, Act 3: Tape Deck

Here's another batch of sick beats from Tha Silent Partner. "Platters is a series just focusing on beats set with a theme. Other than that....ANYTHING GOES! And with TAPE DECK, the theme now focuses on it's creator...." If you need some ill beats to vibe to, throw this tape on and cool out... or burn something.

DOWNLOAD Tha Silent Partner The Platters, Act 3: Tape Deck

The Antidotes L.A. Lights Instrumentals

This dropped in Japan last November. As Round 2 of MarkFader's Pound4Pound series, he provides the instrumentals from this pack. Download it and tell the man thanks.Round 3 will be dropping soon, as well as an EP/mixtape later this summer. Keep it locked!

The Kid Daytona "Twilight"

The Kid Daytona "Twilight" (prod. by Jet Audio) [clean \ dirty]: Didn't dude just put out a project? This is a certified club scorcher - I'd love to see Cipha Sounds play this on Hot 97 and see where this record could go. With those accents, this one has serious potential. Come Fly With Me drops June 30th.

The 2009 Gong DJ Battle

I miss DJ battles. This one looks like fun. Hit up the SOB's site for more info.

Meth vs. Joe, Round 3

At least I think it's round 3. Method Man & Redman kept their word and hit up Ed Lover's morning show this morning, and Meth had this to say:

Redman also had a bit to say:

Excuse Busta's belligerence. He just sounds mad retarded stepping all over his words.

Anyways, I just want to hear some tracks. Be about it, stop speaking. Via Nah Right.

Articulate "Still Fly"

Articulate "Still Fly": I fucked with the Big Tymers original, and its good to hear Bmore's own Articulate body it with his lyrical dexerity. For those of you looking for shit of his to leak, I'm the plumber. Nothing drips unless I say so. Or at least until I'm asked to let it flow by the water company.

Anyways, put on your screw face and rock to this one.

[video] The 54 Reality Show (5/18/2009)

The Paxtons "Just Tonight"

The Paxtons ft. RAtheMC, AP & Te'Luv "Just Tonight": Them Paxton boys put together a joint that sounds like what most guys want to hear after a thirsty night out at the club. If you got the Work sampler, you've heard this cut before, but not mixed and mastered. Enjoy this.

[video] Spec Boogie "Edward Scissorhands"

Another one from Spec's Summer Movie Season tape.

50 Cent "OK, You're Right"

50 Cent "OK, You're Right" (prod. by Dr Dre): Here's the clean CDQ version of the latest single from Before I Self Destruct. What's going on with that hook, Fif? Better yet, what the fuck is that flow? Try harder next time.

Props to Buck Marley.

EDIT Here's the dirty version, via Splash.

Dolla "Georgia Nights"

Dolla "Georgia Nights" (prod. by Ear Hustla): To be honest with you, I never really listened to Dolla. I knew his name from the various blogs poppin' off - hell, I had no idea he was a Konvict artist. In any case, no matter the content of his music (that first verse is very eerie, considering how soon around his untimely death this track leaked), a young life has been taken too soon from this earth, and for that, I'm sorry. I wish my people (and when I say my people, I'm not just saying Black people - I'm speaking our generation) could value life a bit more than they do now. Doing prison time and merkin' someone, or getting merked, is seen as just another thing going down. And that's a fucking shame.

Spotted over on TSS.

Donwill "Laura's Song"

Donwill "Laura's Song": Here's the radio edit of "Laura's Song", which is taken from Don Cusack In High Fidelity. The maxi single is available now on iTunes, so you should do yourself a favor and cop. I remember feeling this way, especially back in high school. *sigh*

Liberated by Shake.

Donny Goines The Breakfast Club

It's May 19th, so I've scrapped the previous post to bring you Donny Goines' new, free album entitled The Breakfast Club. A nigga like me is hungry, so I'll have to blast this while dreaming of a southern chicken biscuit sandwich from Mickey D's.
