Has-Lo "A Pimp Named Slickrap"

Has-Lo "A Pimp Named Slickrap": I mentioned the other day that my external hard drive weighs a ton. That shit is a gift and a curse, though... I end up downloading shit, then not realizing I had it like 3 months later. I distinctly remember Dom P sending me this Has-Lo track back in July, but I hadn't posted it for some reason, and at last night's show at The Khyber, Has performed this live. And I was amazed. Dude's not some big boisterous nigga - he's skinny, and looks young. When he gets on that stage, though - fucking beast on the mic. Really ill presence, and he's talking some shit on that mic.

Zilla Rocca & Has Lo "Forever": Here's the last leak before tonight's show at Khyber tonight, showing Zilla and Has going in over De La Soul's classic "Forever". Dom from Public Axis said that Elucid might be bringing in some Lessondary niggas? I'll be documenting the night pon de video camera, so expect some videos over the weekend. Hope to see you there!

Follow me on twitter for a report.

IllumiNessence "Satellites"

IllumiNessence "Satellites": Here's the second (and final) leak from the Money Isn't Real project from my good folk at Flawless Hustle. I'd break this track down for you right here, but why re-hash what I posted on FH? Hit this post for the full details, as well as the full tracklist for Money Isn't Real. I'm thankful that I could be a part of this, and you should be ready to grab the full project.

Cymarshall Law "I Remember" (prod. by Abnormal): Here's a lil' Cymar to tide you over; Big Breezy hit me up about two projects that Cy is working on: a mix CD entitled The Creator's Craft and The Creator's Kid EP. Dude was no tour all summer, got home and got on his studio ish. I'll be in Philly tonight to check out the homies at The Khyber, and you can see Cymar at Marathon Grill at the Sean Price show. Ill.

Dynas ft. Slick Rick "Family Jewels"

Dynas ft. Slick Rick "Family Jewels" (prod. by DJ Spinna): Slick Rick has been doing some ill features this year, right? This is a pretty fresh throwback provided by DJ Spinna, taken from Dynas' Apartment LP on BBE. I've not heard the full album, but if it sounds like this, I need it!

Props to @numonics for this one!

Brown Bag AllStars "Got It All (DJ Brace Remix)"

Brown Bag AllStars "Got It All (DJ Brace Remix)": The original leaked on Brown Bag Season, Day 12, and now the 2009 Juno Award Winning Producer / Canadian DMC Champion DJ Brace graces us with this fresh take on a banger. And as quickly as the original's sample had me hooked, the cool guitar strumming in this remix is just as fresh.

DJ Paradime & L.E.G.A.C.Y. Whut? Thee Mixtape (Chapter 1)

The one like L.E.G.A.C.Y. dropped off this mixtape to my inbox earlier today; its from 2005, post Project Mayhem, and rocks some Redman design. Sounds like a WIN to me. He told me a lot of this material could've/should've been on Project Mayhem, and it has a lot of features you need to get in tune with, sleepyhead ass niggas.

Angie Stone "I Ain't Hearin' U"

Angie Stone "I Ain't Hearin' U" (prod. by Angie Stone and John McClain): Here's something to wake you up on a dreary Thursday. Taken from Angie's new album, Unexpected (out on November 24th on the legendary Stax), this one features Angie's refreshing vocals over a dope, up-tempo groove. Sounds like she's telling her people that she ain't trying to hear them put down her man. Sounds like the song a chick on Maury would be singing in her head before she finds out her husband is the father.

Dumhi Indian Summer EP

PIMB leaked "Latest Activity" last week, and now the Indian Summer EP from Dumhi is available right now! Hit up their Bandcamp site, and if you're inclined, throw a few dollars their way. This EP is teh truth, and features the likes of Jermiside, Al Mighty, Che Grand, Donwill and many more ill spitters.

Dumhi will also be at the show at Khyber on Friday, October 16th. You need to be there, too!

5 O'Clock Shadowboxers "King Shit"

5 O'Clock Shadowboxers "King Shit": Before they set shit off this Friday at Khyber in Philly,
Zilla spits his bars (and his producer's bars!) over Dilla's "King" from J$P. And it's tough. Trying to make my plans concrete for Friday - if you're in the area, let me know!

Deal - The Villain DDi Mixtape

You guys thought we only had two Deal-centric leaks for this week? No, no. Deal does a lot. Think I'm playing? Peep this mixtape, DDi, short for "Deal Did It". Deal's not only a talented MC, but he also can flip the fuck out of a beat, and does so with a lot of the Elite Assembly clique. You already knew that, though... right? There's a number of cuts on this that you definitely knew about - including Brokn.Englsh's "Clarity", "Caveman Boogie" and others, but shit like "Royal Rumble"? I've been holding onto that one for a MINUTE, and I'm glad you guys get to experience the excellence behind that one. That's a standout for Deal's production, IMO, and one of my favorites on this project. Grab the whole thing, though. DEAL DID IIIIIIIIT!

DOWNLOAD Deal - The Villain DDi Mixtape

Iron African "Poison Ego"

Iron African "Poison Ego": Here's the first leak from the Flawless Hustle compilation Money Isn't Real, which is set to drop on October 19th. This tape will be featuring heads like Versis, Blockhead, Crew 54, Keelay & Zaire, Mike Schpitz and more giving different interpretations on the theme of money not being real. Iron African (who reps Sweden by way of Uganda) came super correct with this first single. Hit up my post on FH for more info on this track, and the compilation as a whole, and be on the lookout for the next leak!

Caspa - Promo Mix

Apparently this promo mix was originally recorded for Mista Jam, here's 21 minutes of fresh dubstep fury. Via fabricfirst.

This was my ignant jam for the summer. This video shoulda been out.

Proxy "Raven (Evol Intent Ravenstep VIP)"

Proxy "Raven (Evol Intent Ravenstep VIP)": The trio known as Evol Intent has been touring like crazy - I ended up missing them at EDC 2009 in LA during the Monsters of Jungle show, but I've always been a fan of their production. Imagine my surprise when their dubstep retwerking of Proxy's "Raven" landed in my inbox a few hours ago.

Had to unleash it. Moody dubstep vibes abound!

Wordsmith "Mastermind Of The Mic"

Zinc "128 Trek"

Zinc "128 Trek": If you're like me, you remember Zinc's mighty "138 Trek", a melodic banger that helped usher in the next phase of his production, showing his skills at slower-than-Jungle BPMs. This was followed in 2001 by "174 Trek", which flipped the original into a DnB zone. Now, with the release of his Crack House EP, Zinc's dipped into the slower BPMs again, this time crafting this anthem in his new found "crack house" experiments. I'm told "crack house" fuses house, dubstep, and a Jungle aesthetic. For those who have wondered where Zinc's gone, he was out making some house he could feel.

The Crack House EP features Benga, Sweetie Irie and others, and is definitely a treat for those who get excited over open experimentation by one of the electronic dance music scene's finest shapeshifters.

EDIT Here's a special Promo Mix Zinc did for Fabric:

Myk Dyaleks, Lyriq 2 Go & Deal - The Villain "Arkham": Earlier today, the homey DTV hit me with this menacing piece of fright. With the weather going chill, and Halloween fastly approaching, this is the perfect sinister soundscape to go trick or treating to. Or plotting major merkage to. Who knows. Brokn.Englsh has a new album on the way, DTV is dropping an EP w/ RTD Records. Lemme find out someone reps the EA more than I do...

Fred Knuxx "School Of Hard Knuxx" (prod. by X-Plosive): Delaware's finest has returned with another banger, produced by frequent-collaborator X-Plosive. This leak is taken from Knuxx's The Big Deal, which should be dropping digitally in the very near future. You can also expect Judah to provide some heat for the project. Knuxx also has an untitled album on the way, to be released sometime in 2010.

Shouts to DubMD for the heads up.

Bonus Beats Fred Knuxx "Lock 'N' Loaded" (prod. by A-Million)

Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture Vol. 2: Enter The Dubstep [preview]

Do you remember the first Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture compilation? It had some pretty ill tracks on it, with Wu-Tang members (and affiliates) with a bunch of featured guests. It looks like there's a second compilation, dropping in conjunction with FrankRadio and iHipHop Distribution, and it takes the Wu-Tang sound into the dubstep realm with Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture Vol. 2: Enter The Dubstep. Now, you know rock the dub is all about the Hip-Hop/dubstep hybrid sound - its what I thrive on - and even I was a bit skeptical about this. Check out the single below (these MP3s are tagged):

You be the judge. I'm not mad at it, but I'm guessing the real flavorful shit is on the full release. Expect to hear remixes and interpolations from dubstep producers like Scuba, Parson, TRiLLBASS, Dakimh, DZ, Rogue Star, Stenchman and Datsik, with a bevy of Wu-Tang MCs and affiliates. Pre-order this now; it drops in stores on November 10th.

The Two. Fifteens - RTD Mix (October 2009)

Not sure if you knew, but the production duo formerly known as The Amps... (who have had their productions featured on projects like the We Got The Remix edition of Mood Muzik 3, Mick Boogie & Terry Urban's Viva La Hova and other releases) have been reemerged, and christened themselves The 2:15's (to avoid possible legal trouble).

Why "The 2:15's", you might ask. Think about getting your whips tricked out with a new speaker system. I don't own a whip (my NJ Transit bus pass gets hella usage), but what I'm told is cats usually upgrade the system to two 15" subwoofers - or higher; nice correlation, going from The Amps... to The 2:15's, as well as a nice description of where they're trying to go, sonically.

I always like hearing fresh producers working on material, and have kept a pretty cool contact with the guys over the summer. They let me know they have some heat in the oven, and this Hip-Hop/dub-laden mix that they gave me is a great example of their varying sounds (that Dizzee Rascal bit in there is pure sickness).

As for their own releases, keep an eye peeled for their EP, Effective When Used After; this should be out in Spring 2010. I'll hit you with more details on this when they become available. Enjoy this one - this shit is FAR from over!
