T-Hud ft. Three 6 Mafia vs. Mikee Merge "Gangsta (DJ Nappy THUGSTEP Refix)"

No Comments »

T-Hud ft. Three 6 Mafia vs. Mikee Merge "Gangsta (DJ Nappy THUGSTEP Refix)": Last week, Nappy introduced Beyonce to the Drumstep movement, and this week's new (and by new, I mean really new) blend finds T-Hud and the Triple Six gettin' it how they live over Mikee Merge's sick sub-lovin' bass. Something for you Cadillac rydas, purple smokers (and sippers), via HOODLUM.

I'll be resurrecting the "First Of The Month" leaks this week, with a brand newbie for you THUGSTEP lovers out there. Oh yes, it's on and populatin'.

MiLKMEN "All Day"

No Comments »

MiLKMEN "All Day" (prod. by Robi): Had no idea where Robi was going with that vocal in the beat initially, but I love the bounce he slid up underneath. I get the feeling that he might mess with that Drum & Bass, but that might also be a nigga dream. ANYWAYS, the MiLKs do what they do best: merk beats. Doubletime, normal speed, whatever it is, these two know how to spit. That’s a given. And they also know how to keep shit to the left, just a tad, so niggas like me can have some excitement and be kept guessing.

Reek Da Villian ft. M.O.P "Fall In Line"

No Comments »

Reek Da Villian ft. M.O.P "Fall In Line" (prod. by Soul Professa): Reek’s name has been poppin’ up kind of heavy, much to do with his association with Busta Rhymes (yes, co-signs still work these days), but on a nasty number with the Firing Squad? Soul P did it again with that metal riff he threw in there. Treatment for the video should be in a dusty biker bar, with MOP and Reek rollin in with cowboy boots and 10 gallon hats, mean muggin’. It may or may not involve niggas getting shot with six shooters and chesty barmaids, but that’s not essential. Well, maybe t is. Reek mixtape coming soon?

UllNevaNo "UllNevaNovember"

No Comments »

UllNevaNo "UllNevaNovember" (prod. by Minus Nine): And as we further travel down the Land of Ill Track Titles That Incorporate A Nigga’s Rap Name, UllNevaNo drops a fresh Fall track before November’s end. No links up with fellow Action Figures affiliate Minus Nine for a quick heatrocket for this glorious #musicmonday. If you’re in Bmore on Friday, the Color Brown listening party is going down, but you already knew that, right?

Catch Wreck "Concerto"

No Comments »

Catch Wreck "Concerto": Tackling “Concerto Of The Desperado”, Wreck brings you his new revolution rap, which can be found on his forthcoming ADHD mixtape. Kind of fitting for a revolutionary, no? I wonder if, when Huey Freeman dreams, tracks like this are the soundtrack? Anyways, Catch follows in the footsteps of the niggas I grew up listening to, niggas who are on a mission by any means necessary. Fight the good fight, brother.

Armond ft. Jalili Jimiyu "Blank Canvas"

No Comments »

Armond ft. Jalili Jimiyu "Blank Canvas": As you should know, Armond has two albums dropping on the same day before the end of the year, and this is the first leak from those batches of songs. Being a father, I feel for the real life he spits on this track. I couldn’t imagine not seeing my son daily, let alone only seeing him three times in a year?!?! I’d go hammer, forreal. I hope his shorty listens to this some day, and knows his dad still loves him. Keep the faith, my nigga – hopefully that situation turns around for you and yours.

Duane Banx "I'm On It"

No Comments »

Duane Banx "I'm On It": Each day, I feel older – bones creaking, wines taste richer, kids seem younger. Duane is probably one of those artists cats don’t think I’d be associated, as he represents the new(er) sounds that the high school kids who game chicks and smoke loosies bounce to on the train. Dude’s grind is kind of mean, and his work hooks me. This might be my favorite of the tracks he’s sent, as it sounds like his bars are part of the game he would spit to a female on the bus stop, or wherever young niggas kick game to females at. I don’t know. I’m living life in headphones, I might not even see what’s poppin’. Anyways, new project from the boy Banx coming soon.

Maffew Ragazino "Gravy & Celery" (prod. by Qwan): Just posted a cut from Ragazino Sr. the other day, and I don't smoke green anymore, but I always have to give it up to tracks that embody that feeling I liked when I was proper bent - usually on a Saturday night, blowing trees and sippin' on something potent. Maff captures that time over this throwback feel, which can be found on Dub Floyd's Chronic Illness Vol. 1 mixtape. You got the itch? Light something, drank something nigga!

RIP Leslie Nielsen

Read more » | No Comments »

Damn. There was a summer in my formative years where you couldn't tell me that the Naked Gun movies weren't the funniest things out there. Back before OJ killed that white lady (come on...), he was the most funniest bumblingest idiot in any buffoon movie. And Leslie Nielsen played the parody cop role to a "T". Dude had the whole thing down - I couldn't even tell you what other movies or roles he's done (Wiki dat)... wait, he was in an episode of M*A*S*H* that flipped my lid when I saw it. Anyways, Nielsen was the man, and word came today that homey passed away at 84. Rest in power, Lt. Drebin.

Mars, Volition, D-Dand & Topaz Jones "Makin Moves" (prod. by Thelonious Martin): I just dropped Thelonious' Player 2 the other day, and he just laced me with this Montclair-laced banger. Jazz loops are always my shit, and reminds me of when I really got into Hip-Hop, but it's good to hear that NOW, in an age where niggas spend so much time trying to keep it digital, while these niggas sound like they bleed analog tape. I love it.

The Kid Daytona The Interlude

Read more » | No Comments »

The Kid Daytona has always intrigued me. I remember the first time I heard anything about him was on a classic episode of Juan Epstein - learned a lot about him, most of it wasn't about his rapping, but over the years, I've always respected his use of theme in his projects. Especially since these shits are free. I mean damn, it's like he had some of the finest producers out there (6th Sense, Cook Classics, 9th Wonder, Ted Smooth and others) take some of the illest musical loops and moments from Hip-Hop and craft fly beats from them. That's what he did? Then he got MCs like Styles P, N.O.R.E., Freddie Gibbs and others to collab with? Jesus Christ, why did I ever sleep on this? Kind of mad I hadn't peeped this when it initially dropped. Definitely something for you to rock to over this holiday weekend. Or on the train. Or while you're at work. Or in the cipher. Future of this thing of ours, looking back at where this thing of ours has traveled. We need more of this.

I feel like I've been waiting for this for a minute, as long as M@rv3lou$ has been hyping this on twitter. He's one of those niggas who I met on twitter and surprised me enough to chart his progress. Dude has the confidence, and is doing his thing on the pad and the beats. This tape showcases his talents, blending more club/chart friendly joints like "Take Your Shirt Off" with a bunch of harder shit, like the heavyweight "I Don't Give A Phyuck". That's how it goes in 2010, though - young niggas don't give a fuck about who you are and how long you been at it. They know they have something to say, are here now and will eat your food, early. Better watch out - they know the game and all they want is someone to listen. Well, not really - these niggas will do what they do regardless, but the end result is acceptance worldwide. I'm not mad.

Read more » | No Comments »

I've always loved Trackstar's mixes, but I think this is the first time I've heard him come with the REVOLUTION feel. I like themed mixes, especially when a cat isn't afraid to go ham on the system. Featuring tracks like Tef Poe's "Everybody Strapped", as well as jawns from Immortal Technique, Nas, Jasiri X, Wise Intelligent, Killer Mike and others who are on that same truth. Days like Thanksgiving, Columbus Day and others make some of us realize how fucked our country can be. Eat some turkey, but realize who had to die for us to feel like turkey eating makes a nigga safe. Or comfortable. Peace to all political prisoners. Continue to fight the struggle.

The Glitch Mob "Fortune Days (DJ Vadim Remix)"

Read more » | 2 Comments »

The Glitch Mob ft. Pugs Atomz & Yarah Bravo "Fortune Days (DJ Vadim Remix)": I love when my (music) worlds collide. I associate Vadim with my Ninja Tune past, dissecting dusty breaks sampled into new tapestries in my mother's attic. Pugs was part of that underground Hip-Hop scene, and is a big part of the shit I follow nowadays. The Glitch Mob is skraight out of my EDM love, and the work I put in on other sites you might not frequent. To have all of these stars align into one club-thumping jawn in 2010? Heaven. Vadim lends the track a dope bounce, and Pugs and Yarah lend some sly vocals to the mix - not overpowering, more becoming a piece of the track, all points aimed at getting your ass on the floor. Hit the jump for the press info on where this track is taken from.

Vasco "I'm From Jersey": About a month ago, Vasco leaked a track he wrote about his trip back from Cali, but you can write a whole album about the inspiration niggas from New Jeru get from our homeland. It's a really dope piece of music, allowing the god to showcase what makes him him, while give you a taste about many of the minute details that make Jersey what it is. I kind of which RTD got a shout out - maybe on the remix? Ha! Big up to all my Jersey Hip-Hop heads, one love.

Maffew Ragazino "Whatever You Call 'Em" (prod. by Jaisu): @RagazinoSr has been getting a lot of great looks as of late... possibly because he got a lot of people open with his freestyle on Combat Jack's show a month or so ago, but it's just good to know that the nigga isn't just some witty punchlines and such. Dude can come with fly tracks like it's nothing. Most of this jawn here sounds like he's just talking to you, you feel me? He's a smart cat beyond his years. This is part of his Money And Fame Fuels Everyone's Wednesday series, so be on the look out for more of those, and just more of Maff in general.

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".

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!

Thelonious Martin Player 2

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.

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.

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!

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!"

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.

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.

I know, I know - we already saw a trailer for this Eli Porter-documentary. This one features some of your favorite Internets, including Jay Smooth, Jeff & Eric from It's The Real, and my mellows Rafi Kam and Dallas Penn, the original iNTERNETS CELEBRITIES, as well as DCtoBC's Modi and Andy Milonakis. I hope I'm in the sequel?

Now, I thought this was due out like next week, but the e-mail I got says "seeking distribution", so who knows. Also, where's the mixtape? Hit up PeoplesChampionDoc.com for all details.

Hype Men Podcast, Episode 14: Hannibal Buress

Every year I get super into a comedian or two. I saw a random trailer for The Awkward Comedy Show, and got put onto Hannibal Buress' work. I got My Name Is Hannibal and was blown away - while the nigga definitely sounds high, his view(s) on life and nonsense are dead-on. I'm not too up on dude, but I know he writes for 30 Rock and other shows, and was happy to hear that he is featured on the latest edition of the Hype Men podcast: "30 Rock writer and stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress joins the Hype Men to discuss J. Cole + comedy stage names + the Gathering of the Juggalos + MIMS’ second single + Crucial Conflict + Ke$ha’s performance on SNL + the differences between SNL and 30 Rock + who President Obama follows on twitter + Kat Stacks + banned Sega CD games + 50 Tyson + more!"
