Elite Assembly "Welcome To The Playoffs"

Elite Assembly "Welcome To The Playoffs":With today being the official start of the 2010 NBA Playoffs, it makes sense that we leak the intro to the Elite Assembly's Welcome To The Playoffs mixtape, which drops on Monday, April 19th. It's jam-packed with a batch of beats and rhymes that will fuck up a lot of nigga's scorecards, and make some players reconsider what the fuck they're tryna do in this game here. Trust and believe.

PREX Celebrates 30 Years On Record Store Day

One of my favorite indie record shops, Princeton Record Exchange (right near Princeton Univ.), will be celebrating their 30th anniversary today, on Record Store Day. That's been my go-to spot since 1995 - I usually hit it up when I need some of that good EDM, or just rare Hip-Hop imports. The majority of the vinyl I own has come from that institution as well. I'll be there at some point today with the missus, as RSD hits during our anniversary weekend. Not sure what I'll be buying today (maybe the special 12" version of the Daedelus Righteous Fists Of Harmony EP), but I'm gonna cop something. Hit the jump for PREX's press release on this special occasion.

J-Live "The Way That I Rhyme"

J-Live "The Way That I Rhyme" [mirror]: Here's a track that Justice Live unleashed to help promote his new website, I'm just glad dude is still around - his All of The Above album ruled my Summer of 2002, and is an album that I bought when I went on one of my first dates w/ my now-wife. Sentimental, but it also held up over the years. Talented dude.

Ashley Dupre's Playboy Spread

I will always give Ashley Dupre props, seeing as she's the reason New York has a failure of a BLNDBLCKGVRNR. She was recently featured in Playboy, and I do see that Global Grind has the entire (ahem) spread available for perusing.

And for those who care, Ashley does have her own blog.

T-Pain ft. Lil' Wayne "Can't Believe It (Starkey Remix)"

T-Pain ft. Lil' Wayne "Can't Believe It (Starkey Remix)" [mirror]: Here's a free outtake from the recently-released Street Bass Anthems Vol. 4 compilation from the Seclusiasis click, who are at Fluid in Philly tonight with DZ. Damn. This remix is tough, builds on everything that's ill about their "street bass" movement. And the fact that Weezy used auto-tune on this just makes his voice fit that much nicer on Starkey's beat.

The Mecca Of Rhymes, Jones Andrews & Young Rush "Trade It All"

The Mecca Of Rhymes, Jones Andrews & Young Rush "Trade It All" (prod. by Quietstorm): Here's a track about niggas who are devoted to being able to make Hip-Hop. Shit like this used to be so prevalent in the 1990s, but I think when the Clinton Era of Rap was in full-swing, niggas were hella diamond-struck. It's good to hear niggas on this shit, even if it's only cats who rep the underground, heavy. Mecca of Rhymes, Jones Andrews & Young Rush all rep the FSM crew, and this cut is taken from the FSM mixtape, First In Flight, Last To Land, which drops in late May.

L.E.G.A.C.Y. ft. Keisha Shontelle "Project Mayhem"

May 17th will mark the 5 year anniversary of the debut album by L.E.G.A.C.Y. "Project Mayhem". The celebration will actually begin in April and is to be known as "The Month of Mayhem". The Month of Mayhem will have a slew of unreleased songs that could've been, should've been or would've been on Project Mayhem but for whatever reason didn't make the cut. We will revisit the album that many underground fans dub as a "classic" before possibly diving into to any new L.E.G.A.C.Y. material.

The 1st unreleased song is actually the title track and was originally the 1st song on the album- "Project Mayhem" featuring Keisha Shontelle, produced by 9th Wonder and recorded somewhere between '02-'03.
