Bonus Beats Apollo The Great ft. Beano "Your Dream"
Nothing like NJ Hip-Hop and anime. Produced by The Custodian Of Records.
This is the funniest shit to me. Cop the track via iTunes.
I heard about this a while back and forgot to mention it, but one of my favorite albums of all time got the re-issue treatment. Return To The 36 Chambers is an album I bought twice - once on bootleg cassette, once on CD, and I might need to grab this version as well, as they took the foodstamp artwork and made this a whole billfold wallet with your own ODB foodstamp card (!!), poster, extended artwork and more. It's $25, but when you realize that it has remixes, acapellas, instrumentals and other rare jams you might not have been up on, this is well worth it. Cop that shit right now, or head over to OKP and try to win a copy.
With Black Friday touching down this week, I gotta say I remember working at Circuit City, trying to save ends for my marriage the following year, and hearing the news at work that ODB died. Fucked my head up. I can still recite most of this album at will. You should be able to do the same. Rest In Peace, Ol' Dirty.
Shouts to the homey Pugs Atomz for sending this one over. The Electric's Overloaded EP is available now.
Damn, I miss the summer.

Cyrano Sinatra (f.k.a. Cyrano aka Cy Yung) has reconnected with Dub MD to help remove a blemish from their immaculate first collaboration, 2009's 'Madicinal Libationz'. After assembling one of the most diverse casts of Hip-Hop underground at the time, 'Madicinal Libationz' was received with praise but ran into roadblocks to reaching as many as it could have, but this 'Bitchless Brew' will not have that problem.
The 'B*tchless Brew' features production from one of the UK's best kept secrets, Magic-Boy, Cyrano's familia, Centric, J. Slikk, Cynergy Soundz and Sharpcuts and extended fam from NC Hip-Hop's stash of heatrock-makers, this is what should have been! Brought to you by Kevin Nottingham and RockTheDub. The project is minus a few choice cuts that will make their remix appearance for the forthcoming Anniversary edition.
No better way for Dub MD to say farewell to his freely-given, classic co-sign mixtape series than with this re-invention project, a return to the buffet of lyrical wordplay Cy dropped in April of 2009. And this is only the beginning, Cyrano and Dub MD will continue to keep the flame of Underground Hip-Hop lit. Sinatra's 2012 will feature more from his 2-man group Steadyflow (with Sharp), as well as complete projects produced by Centric, J. Slikk, DJ Husky, DJ J-Rell and Doc Verbz.
This will be also be Dub MD's final "FREE" artist project, stay tuned over the next couple of months his official debut EP entitled "The Requiem" which features the best sub-surface hip-hop has to offer including Vandalyzm, Substantial, Sha Stimuli, Braille, Kam Moye, Spec Boogie, Kel Spencer, 8thW1, Genesis Elijah + more. Along with the exclusive instrumental album "P.U.S.S.Y." with D.C. producer Judah and Universal Indie Records.
