2 Hungry Bros. x Dub MD Open Buffet!

Read more » | No Comments »

Being the nerd that I am, I fucks with Hip-Hop and the sounds that influence the genre. 2 Hungry Bros., a pair of producers who dig in crates and use their finds to educate and create some fucking dope music. Dub MD recognized that, and has been working with them on the very project you see here. Just in time for Thanksgiving, 2HB got some delicious treats for your fatboy Hip-Hop hunger pangs, with MCs like 8th W1, P.SO, Fresh Daily, YC The Cynic, Homeboy Sandman, and plenty of chefs for this dinner. Full plate it up, bitch.

J.A.M.E.S. WATTS When Worst Comes To Worst

Read more » | No Comments »

If you fucked with The Very Worst..., you need to fuck with this Frank G remix of Watts' shit: "Where some of the OG versions were laid over sample-based tracks or the well known instrumentals of mainstream artists, all of the music on this collection is 100% organic & live - we attempted to take each track in a different direction than its counterpart, giving it a new feel while maintaining the same vibe as the original. Three out of the five songs on "When Worse Comes To Worst" were found, in rough form, in the video clips that I've been releasing over the last few weeks; now, after many long days and plenty of hard work, they are complete".

Beyonce ft. Jay-Z vs. Document One x Heist "Upgrade U (DJ Nappy THUGSTEP Refix)"

No Comments »

Beyonce ft. Jay-Z vs. Document One x Heist "Upgrade U (DJ Nappy THUGSTEP Refix)": Sometimes, a riddim is too good to leave be. Drumstep is an emerging style, and this Heist remix of Document One's "Forgive Me" straddles the line between proper aggression and stunning beauty, which is kind of what Beyonce had going when "Upgrade U" dropped. Her, all curves and sultry womanhood, wanted to flex her chi all over your life, upping the ante on your own cool. It's an awesome blend, and when Hov touches down after the breakdown in the middle? My lawd.



To further represent that THUGSTEP flag, 51:51 dropped a dope chat with Nappy yesterday, which includes a SICK B.o.B. vs. Girl Unit THUGSTEP Refix exclusive to 51:51! There's also an interview up at The Art of Storytelling, with a dope look into Nappy's mind and how this THUGSTEP shit started!



You should be good with that right now, right?

8th W1 "To Audrey" (prod. by Ramon 'Sincere' Rodriguez): 8th sent this over last week, and for some reason I forgot to give this one a run. Silly me. Interesting track, here – 8th goes in deep, and when you think shit is going one way, he injects some proper reality on a number of different topics. He’s a smart brother, and knows how to pick some sick beats to express himself. All about preparation for the future, for the born and unborn in our lives. Stand up nigga, 8th is.

Thelonious Martin Player 2

Read more » | No Comments »

Following the brilliance that is 1up, Martin drops this new beat tape, Player 2, which has me thinking about how much time I spent playing games dolo as a child. Being an only child, and not having cousins close, but loving video games, I spent a lot of time playing these games by myself, with the flashing PLAYER 2 shit on the right hand side of the screen. Oddly enough, I’ve spent a lot of time listening to music by myself, too. Most of the time, I was listening to music WHILE playing games, alone. Method Man’s first album was the soundtrack to Sonic 3 for a while. Anyways, one of the nicer producers who doesn’t get as much shine as I’d like him to drops another fine one, preceding the release of his Dope Couture mixtape. For now, grab a friend and make some memories to this beat tape right here. It’s well worth it.

Ashy L Bowz "Budget Love"

No Comments »

Ashy L Bowz "Budget Love": This track is definitely what it says on the tin – one of BK’s nicest breaks down how to be frugal while with your lady on dates and such. I know what that’s like – it’s all about “appreciating the little things” and what not. We all can’t ball uncontrollable, but you don’t want to fuck your paper up trying to be Don Juan, you feel me? Count your pennies and spend wisely – she won’t mind. Right? Anyways, this is the first single from No Lotion 2: The Great Repression, which is due out in March 2011. Be on the lookout for that, troop!

Seven Day "Doobies": Here's a lil' jam for you everyday blazers out there. And not you niggas who smoke b/c you think it's fashionable - I'm talking about you do or die cats, who just love rollin' up. After dropping their Concepts EP earlier this year, Seven Day is set to drop CNCPTS2, which drops January 1st, and will be followed by their debut album, Dusk Til Dawn. For now, roll something tight and kick back to this fly one.

Suave The Ape "Where We At?"

No Comments »

Suave The Ape "Where We At?": I've got a feeling January 1st, 2011 will be chock full of a number of releases, including Suave's Dead Nation EP, which shows him continuing his progression, which is equal parts new school and mid-90's flyness. Dude just has a crazy throwback appeal that hits me everytime I hear him touch a mic. He also likes touching on heavier topics, making his poetry both boastful and hopeful. I'm not sure if he's leaking anything else between now and 1/1/11, but just backtrack and catch up until then!

Joell discusses his early beginnings and transition to Aftermath to being a free agent, how Slaughterhouse was created, his mother’s drug abuse and how it prevented him from pursuing college. Also he touched on his plans on getting physically fit for 2011 and of course he kept it Brooklyn and spit some bars. Shout out to PNC Radio’s own (and BYOBBBQ earl-Star) DJ Kraff for holdin’ it down. Video coming shortly. You know the drill…. "

DJ Cable - BBC 1Xtra Guest Mix for CJ Beatz (11/16/2010)

I listened to this at work this morning and it put me in the proper mood for a busy Friday at the fucking j-o. From DJ Cable: "I recently stopped by BBC 1Xtra for a guest mix and a quick chat on CJ Beatz' RnB Mixshow last week, which was aired on Tuesday.

I literally had about 5 to 10 minutes to prepare my set, as I had been busy all day Dj-ing at a Maida Vale session for Yasmin, but the end result was pretty dope! 30 minutes of New Jack Swing/90's R&B, some uptempo club joints, southern Hip Hop, Dubstep, Grime, and a live acapella mashup too! It was nice to be able to go in live, and not spend ages preparing a crazy multi-tracked mix!"

This is a proper "get the weekend started" mix, you smell me?

Marvalyss "Anything" (prod. by Beat Wiz): When niggas like @ClubbaLang send you messages about niggas you need to be checkin’ for, you listen. Dude’s got a slippery-smooth sample in the background, and dedicates this to that one true love. It’s funny – you can’t deny the feeling of love to anyone, but for whatever reason, niggas feel like they are punks when they express how they feel about someone. It’s probably because they can’t figure out how to do it in a way that makes them still sound like the man they know they are. Just gotta go for it, in love, in career, in life. Do anything you can to grab it, then hold on tight.

Rickie Jacobs "Speakers Goin’ Hammer": Jacobs figured he’d let the faucet flow, and continues to massacre beats from his Bmore studio. “Goin’ ham” is one of my favorite terms ever, and when Souljer Boy flipped “Goin’ Hammer”, I died.

Sene and J57 have been parts of some dope shit in 2010. For a while, the only shit I heard from J was Sene leaks. Strong artists in their own right, it looks like they smartened up and decided "hey, why don't we make some shit together?", and out comes eye don't dream...but i do. Well, this sampler is what we have, so far, but, so far, we have some fucking heat. Intriguing samples build beautiful beats that lay foundations for introspective lyrics and witty lines. I mean, this is good Hip-Hop, and I guess that's why the good folks at Okayplayer got on board. Who knows, I sure don't. I still wanna fight J57, but that's for another day. 40 ounce to the skull piece just for living.

Yeah. Sample this, then be on the look for that.

That’s already a great premise for anything. The fact that they got Prince Paul and Set Free to come for some proper skits!??! Above and beyond. DJ Ambush on the executive production, showcasing that tri-state flavor is still thoro. It’s funny, it’s got fly rhymes over timeless beats… it’s like a De La album. These niggas ripped “Rock Co.

Hatcha & Coki LIVE At Some Night (11/05/2010)

No Comments »

Via QRIP: "London’s forefathers of dubstep, Hatcha and Coki, pedal out a storming back-to-back set on a not-so-timid Wednesday night session at The Den. Sin City and DMZ crew godfathers back to back. Few single DJs have had as much influence on the course of dubstep as Croydon’s Hatcha. Starting out at Big Apple Records, and mixing the first Dubstep Allstars comp, and hosting a show on Kiss FM, and starting Sin City Records, the sound of London’s bass music wouldn’t be the same without him. Coki is an equal match in that regard, shaping the rough and righteous sound of DMZ alongside longtime friend and cohort Mala. Together, Hatcha and Coki are doing their bit to tear up the sub-bass and threaten low frequencies, of course. On the mic is long-time grime MC and Rinse FM favourite, P Money, wreaking a little havoc. All this, recorded live at Some Night’s first birthday in London."

Dude just slides atop a beat and dives in and out of the beat. Real suave kind of shit, with doses of reality and struggle thrown about. I also love the choice of beats on this project – it has an overall vibe from front to back, kind of like going through your momma’s record collection with a bottle of wine and reminiscing.

He allowed me to leak this jawn out, which is kind of a call-to-arms for those who have a singular voice that’s not heard for whatever reason. It’s not often you hear of cats expounding on their non-boozing, non-using ways. Just a nigga who’s got talents and trying to elevate his people, his sound, for the masses. He knows what he wants, and just wants that respect. Kind of a bold statement TBH, but Nato Caliph is all about keeping it right.

SigNif "What Matters" (prod by Gee Wiz): I won’t front – with such a void left in the dope female MC market, I have a thing for ladies who spit about more than whatever Kim and Nicki kick in their hits. I posted a dope video from Sig the other day, and it’s good to get another fire track, this one from her forthcoming SigNificant Wizdom EP. Sig’s voice is sharp but not boisterous, so you feel her lyrics more, and once you’re comfy, it’s almost like a second date. You come for the fuzzy feeling, then things start to open up, and you start to learn about people. Let her give you a bit of her story on this.

Roc C & Soul Professa ft. Concise Kilgore "Roc Kil": You ever hear something that’s so nasty, once the first few bars fly by, you have to wheel the track back and start it over? Rewinds are a Jamaican thing, that migrated to DnB/dubstep culture, and is something that Funkmaster Flex gets… this track deserves a few rewinds, it’s that damn naughty. That Roc x Soul street album is on the way, and features cats like Oh No and DJ Romes, as well as this Kilgore-assisted jugular-aimed boxcutter. I don’t think it’s just that spine-tingling loop or the heavy thud of a kick – it’s both of those elements combined, with some fly flows atop. You ain’t ready.
