With an album due out in December, Mr. Miranda and Random align again to form Mirandom and bless this beautiful Mute production, sounding every bit as "silky" as you can sound on this second leak from The Memorandum. DJ Les on the cuts adds the right touch of class atop this one. Ill rhymes, some dope beats and ginsu-sharp cuts? Makings of some classic shit to ride out to. Sip something expensive to this.

This an excellent track right here. The last leak from Adebisi's The Blaxploitation Life II, he aligns with Najee over some fucking magnificent excellence in the form of Reason's track. Makes me feel like pushing all of this busy work to the side and dancing on my cubicle, bottle of beer in hand. Fuck that life, fuck with this life. My spirit is better than my boss' boss' bullshit. Just say the word. Shouts to Q from TMB.

For the second Halloween in a row, The Two. Fifteens have cooked up an exclusive mix for you RTD fiends out there. 2011 has been a dope year from them, getting some great looks from the likes of Benji B, Starkey and other major players, as well as putting out projects like The Commute Vol. 1, as well as remix Nappy's "This Is Anger". They've got a grip of heat in the chamber, and are no doubt waiting to put out some serious sounds. I'll keep you locked on all of that, as per usual. For now, take a walk on the spooky side with their latest mix, featuring cuts from Hype Williams (the producer, not the video director), Scientist, Project Pat, Drumma Boy and their own productions. Fucks with this for your weekend - you HAVE to have some parties that this mix could be the soundtrack for very easily.
Not only do I love when MCs I fuck with pop up randomly on dope tracks - and I don't hear about them - but when those same MCs are doing tracks for people I consider fam, that's the goodshit. The homegirl Vicious Cycle put out a couple of tracks under the Volume Control heading, and this one not only features a pretty fly sample, but taps Lessondary vet Von Pea, who I finally met over the summer, for a feature.This is the kind of ish I'd rather bring to my son to get educated and (hopefully) become as enamored with Hip-Hop as I am. Lots of love for the music, no cookie-cutter beats - just straight from the heart, honest output. Loving that sample as well. Spend you a dollar and get you some Hip-Hop.

This is the second track from @Milly_Esquire's "Milly Mondays" series, which I've not kept up with for no good reason. Fucks with it.

First off, shouts to J-Zone's grandmother for reaching 88 years on this earth. She celebrated her birthday with a bran muffin and a copy of Root for The Villain, Zone's new book, which drops on in November. I've gotten my mitts on a promo copy, and when I get a chance to read it, I'm amazed. Here he is, one of the true DIY artists within the underground Hip-Hop scene, crafting not only a story on his life through a Hip-Hop scope, but also dropping GEMS that you new school artists should really take notice of. He's a purist, and it shows, and honestly, whether it's Professional Wrestling or Hip-Hop, we all need a dose of that research and experience before really tackling our own dreams. In this excerpt from the book, Zone breaks down what happens when someone with a Rap career is forced to go back into the workforce. I fucking hate my job, and hope any rapper who is worth their weight in acetate can somehow maintain an existence in the industry, on their own terms. I wish I could. In any case, head on over to egotripland and check out this excerpt, then buy the book when he drops it... and if THAT'S not enough, check out another excerpt, "5 Rap Songs That Got Me In Deep Sh*t".
Now before you talk shit, yes, both the flier and the post title say October 40th. That's not a typo. When Ambush hit me about helping present the #MONTHOFTHEMASK with the #DSTRCT9 crew, it was damn near the middle of October. So, as to keep this train moving, we asked the Gods and the Earths to extend October to include this DOOMSTRAVAGANZA night, which goes down at The Arts Garage in Philly on the 9th of November (for you mortals); truthfully, it'll be the 40th of October. Get that shit RIGHT. Copies of Ambush's Amtroduction To DOOM mixtape, as well as La'Trese & Summer's DOOM For Dummies mixtape will be available, and while masks are not required, they are highly recommended attire.
To further whet your appetite, we've got "The Rock Pro.Pain Flow", which features Chances R (of Society Parks) ripping through the instrumental for "Rock Co.Kane Flow", the Jake One-produced DOOM feature from De La's Grind Date album. Shit's blaze.

We've all been there. Niggas going to a party where you might be indulging a bit too much. Not pass out level - yet, but that shit where things like playing badminton in flip-flops or running around with a deer head, poking girls in the ass with the antlers, sounds like the ONLY thing you need to be doing. You probably went around smoking that shit. You know what I'm talking about. The shit the white dude with Birkenstocks passed you, smelling like heaven. Out of a bong, doe. Followed by straight shots of Black Label. Around like 2PM, Saturday afternoon. I definitely just described an excursion I went in on back Halloween 1999, involving breaking in this cat's new mini-bong we dubbed "Johnny 5". Ham. Oh, this is a new refix that Nappy flipped over a Dev79 riddim. Shouts to that Slit Jockey fam. We'll be dropping Nappy's Manic mix in some way, shape or form on the Halloween 2011, too. OH and word is that Waka Flocka, Meek Mill and Uncle Murda will be touching down at the Sun National Bank Center on the 23rd of November for a "Jersey's Most Wanted" concert. I don't think I'll be going. I'm not trying to get merked in my hometown on Thanksgiving Eve.

Got this remix of "Niggas In Paris" in my inbox last night. Or today. These weeks really just fly by. This shit kind of HAM. DJ Warrior and Vision took a Hov line and a Ye line, as well as a likkle snip of melody and threw some nasty bass and harder drums underneath. No real verses, though. Aside from Von D, does Paris have a dubstep scene? Who knows. Go ham to this.

For the third of his "jawns" series, Small Pro compiles a batch of beats that he did on the side #chuckle. As he puts it (as he pushes his glasses right on his face), "they're all pretty much personal challenges in the form of previously heard sample refreaks and flips of suggestions by my homies". I jut say they're ill tracks. Enjoy, ho. And grab that Fortilive Remix LP that dropped last week.

I've been championing Rob Jay's work over the last year. Or two. Days flow into each other, sorry. This shit right here? DJ Ammbush and Rob linking up, knocking out an EP together? Awesome. Rob's got the knack for telling great stories, and shows off his humorous side when needed (check the nod to Purple Rain on this one). I'd go in for eons trying to make you listen, but really, just listen to it.

EDIT I also uploaded a version with 320kbps MP3s, as opposed to the .wavs, which made their link like 300MB+. Sorry!
This track first leaked back in July. Shot in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

Here's a dope release that I've been waiting to drop. The boy B. Young, now known as YNG_BMC, recently dropped this EP, which is produced entirely by Tha S Ence out of Philly. Dude's flow fits perfectly with S Ence's brand of Hip-Hop. Seriously some dope shit to wake up and get your day right with. I have been a fan of dude's work for a bit, and in passing he let me know that he's got more work he's putting in, so hopefully over the next couple of months I'll have some new treats, but dig in to these with a bowl of Wheaties (or weedies). Getcha mind right.
