Disc Jockey Nappy – Best of 2011

Read more » | No Comments »

Shouts to Nappy for kicking off 2012 with a redesign of his site and this sick mix. He asked myself and Zone3 (of THEFREAKBEAT, who also did the cover art) to give him our top 10 dubstep tracks. He added some of his favs and this mix was born. A number of my jawns of the year are included, as is an unreleased dubplate of Coki's as well. Tough mix, as per usual. Enjoy that.

Something a bit moody here, with a nigga's lack of confidence morphing into relationship woes. I been there. Need to turn this one up when you're feeling lonely because of some chick, and you want to just throw the headphones on (followed by your hood) and skrewface it up. Miscellany.

Skrewtape ft. Renegade "Wreckognize"

No Comments »

The boy Skrew let this one go the other day. Proper line-up here. Dope feature from Renegade, with cuts by DJ Absurd, all over a Mr. Green beat? Has a dope bounce to it. Love how they go along with the beat, playing the calmer parts one way, with the fury coming when those drums start to knock. Great slice of Hip-Hop Pie for the new year, bitch. Rappers rapping about other rappers rapping/what the fuck happen?!...

This is that proper NJ Underground shit: "The 7 Immortals are an OG Hip-Hop crew from Trenton NJ and includes more than 15 established, pioneering artists from the area. Members are mostly comprised of those artists who regularly recorded with the late, veteran Trenton producer Tony D (Poor Righteous Teachers/YZ), the crew from the revolutionary 90's Hip-Hop show: "The Raw Deal," as well as artists who frequented Hot Spots Studio (a recording respite for Trenton Hip-Hop artists circa 1989-1994.), alongside several Wu-Tang affiliates".

As per usual, Bekay goes in for his 2011 Year-End re-cap. I haven't heard if Skillz is doing his, but that's fine, if this is the only review of 2011, that's fine. He spans the entire globe, from politics to Mayan prophecy over "Back On The Scene", the M-Phazes-produced Slaughterhouse track.

DJ Cable - 2011 AD (Part 1)

2 Comments »

Recently, @DJCable asked me to send him some bits that I fucked with from 2011. Well, he actually asked me for more of an underground/Jansport flex, so most of my picks aren't in this batch, which is 30+ tracks of a more above-ground flavor. Artists included are Nicki Minaj, David Banner, A$AP Rocky, Big Sean, Pusha T, J. Cole Drake, Tyler, the Creator, Uncle Murda, Juicy J and plenty more. He went IN on this one, and I'm glad to help present it. Word is the second edition should be touching down in a few weeks, with more of a subterranean flex. Enjoy!

Black Collar Biz - #BlackFriday

Read more » | No Comments »

Crazy how this shit works. Saw Black Collar Biz at a few Hip-Hop functions over the year, and after building on twitter for a bit, finally got my hands on some of his music. And he's the truth. Like forreal forreal, beyond his years knowledge, and the drive that will keep his name in the light. And he reps New Jersey. His Forever Black album is due out VERY soon, and I suggested that he get a #BlackFriday series going. We've served you that good food all month. Here's a 19-track helping of Biz destroying a number of beats, including "HiiiPower", "Exhibit C" and plenty more, dolo and with a number of the state's finest. Fuck with this, and keep it locked for the album!

The winning remixes will be featured on Jarren Benton's Freebasing With Kevin Baconmixtape, which is due out in February 2012. Peep the Kato-produced original:

DJ Nappy's Post-Christmas Gifts

No Comments »

While I can't comment on how long it might take Nappy to get some shit done, I always commend him when he gets in his zones. He can knock a mix a day if he wants, or drop some ridiculous refixes on that ass. In the last few days, he let loose both a refix of a track that I sent the acapella to him mad long ago, and a jawn that he definitely sent to some DJs with an email stating to not put the track anywhere. I'm his manager and I can't manage him. I failed in 2011. But you won, because you still got two shit-hot refixes. THUGSTEP train keeps moving. Oh and yes, that's definitely an aerial shot of Nappy's workspace up there. And grab that THUGSTEP Commission mix!

While my Christmas doesn't sound as downtrodden as most, my post-Christmas ends are dumb low. All in the name of being khal bundy... Married, With Children. Gotta keep them happy. And they are.

Gripz "I've Awoken"

One of those tracks where the title can't be more literal. After some time on the low, Gripz hit me like "I'm back", and asked for the "Shook Ones, Part 2" instrumental. After a year, this cut dropped as he usually does (i.e. less than 24 hours), and he sounds sharper. 2012 might need to be a problem.
