Lil B "Santa Claus Is Coming (Based Freestyle)"

I don't post much Lil B on this one, but the fact that he took it BACK with the instrumental, and kicked a based freestyle about Christmas (ohmygod)? This is tough. Maybe Santa is Based. I need a DVD player.

Nitty Scott, MC x Rah Digga x Sean Price - Combat Jack Show Freestyle (12/21/2011)

Was just listening back to this week's three-hour Chrilmuh extravaganza, and this freestyle is on fucking point. Nitty Scott, MC and Rah Digga go in HARD on the beat, and P! goes in acapella. Bong. You need this.

Disc Jockey Nappy - The Thugstep Commission

Here's a mix that should've dropped one way, was going to drop another way, but ended up getting uploaded last night by Nappy. And I'm the nigga presenting it. In any case, here's some THUGSTEP for your weekend. I'll just copy my copy: "Welcome to the beginning of the next chapter in the Book of Thugstep. A movement spawned by a Lil Jon acapella and a smirk has now ignited a number of scenes, and no one knows this sound better than its architect, Jersey's own DJ Nappy. With hundreds of his own refixes under his belt, and the majority of 2011 spent cultivating projects, mixes and plotting the next phase, Nappy is chronicling the Thugstep movement as we see it. This first peek is his most captivating mix of the year, bringing the familiar Hip-Hop and dubstep originals from the likes of Wale, ASAP Rocky and Yelawolf along with refixes from the cream of the crop, including Wick-It, DZ, Nick Catchdubs and himself, Nappy weaves from sound to sound, genre to genre, like no one else has been. Welcome to The Thugstep Commission". Shouts to Definate for the artwork.

EDIT Looks like ClubTapes picked up on this. Currently at 10K views.

#BlackFriday: Black Collar Biz ft. Ohio "Winning Is A Job"

Why yes, we're still going in with these #BlackFriday drops. Black Collar Biz hits a slick one with the boy Ohio, breaking down how being successful is a career. It's an interesting way to look at the hustle and grind, especially in an age where Charlie Sheen has bastardized the word "winning". You have to work hard to win well, just like any other thing you're trying to achieve. Even if it's a Holiday weekend. No Days Off. Forever Black is dropping very soon!

"I Can't Forget New Jersey" (Dec. 2011)

I got hit up by 101 Distribution to contribute to their "News" section, highlighting NJ Hip-Hop. That's my M.O. already, so I said "let's go". The first article went up today, and is more of a 2011 NJ Hip-Hop review. I don't cover EVERYTHING, but a lot of what stood out to me in 2011's NJ scene is in there. I'm hoping to get more interviews and artist features up as the months go on, so hit me at khal@rockthedub.com, subject "I Can't Forget New Jersey", and we'll talk about getting some shine on. For now, let me know what you think of that first drop.

The Combat Jack Show ft. Dallas Penn (12/21/2011)

Final Combat Jack ft. Dallas Penn show of 2011, and it's a three-hour Holiday Doozy. You not only have Sean Price sitting in for like the fourth or fifth time, but Nitty Scott, MC returned. The real highlight, in my opinion, is Jersey's own Rah Digga sitting in, breaking down her history. I didn't realize how connected she was even before the Outsidaz! Revel in this one with some eggnog and a dutch of that good. Chea!

[video] Game ft. Wolf Haley & Lil' Wayne "Martians vs. Goblins"



Fuck Game. That's why Weezy didn't make it to your video and you had to have some weird old nigga do the chorus. Tyler owned this track anyways. Love how Game has to suck these niggas dicks. One rhyme he's trying to be OFWGKTA, the next he's Weezy's best baby.

SheedWell Promo II



DTV breaks it down for Myk Dyaleks' SheedWell EP, which is dropping Christmas Day right here on RTD.

Danny! ft. iLLmont "Payback"

Now this is what I needed today. Proper early Christmas gift. Danny! unleashes this Payback title track featuring his iLLmont upstarts (that you got introduced to last month) over a hectic, throwback beat. Love the way the bass helps keep the track hype, like those mid-'90s moody cuts. Word is the video for this drops Christmastime, and iLLmont might be signing to Danny!'s Wanderland/Interscope imprint. Always killing some goddamn shit.

Cyclops - Rap Scott Summers

I'm not sure if Cyclops knew of my comic book love when he asked me to help present Rap Scott Summers, but I loved the whole idea and concept. And the fact that he had a jawn called "Asteroid M". The X-Men have always been my shit, so to hear someone flip those themes with a project like this? Awesome. Fully produced by Tokyo Cigar, mixed by DJ Jay Skillz and presented by RTD and YNotMyDream. Fun funnery.

Small Professor ft. Has-Lo "When The Last Leaf Falls"


Timewarp. When I first saw Has-Lo, Curly Castro, Zilla Rocca, Elucid, Al Mighty and other spitters I like to consider comrades perform two years ago, I remember seeing Small Pro get up on stage and ROCK with Has-Lo while performing "When The Last Leaf Falls", which Pro produced. I hounded them for a minute for a copy of this, and finally got it. He told me it was going to drop on his album, and that LP (Gigantic, Vol. 1) will finally be released on the 24th of January (digital, with physical to come). Fucking mesmerizing piece of Hip-Hop right here, and one of my favorites from the last few years. I've kept in contact with Pro, and through a bit of sports talk and bullshit, he's allowing rockthedub to present Gigantic, Vol. 0, his remixtape that will even drop on cassette on January 3rd, 2012. More on that VERY soon, as well as for his album. But for now, enjoy this album track, and cop that shit when it drops.

Never been too keen on destroying the Christmas magic for the kids. Yes, I am Santa khal, but be forreal. You're STILL playing into the holiday by buying kids gifts. If it was that serious, why even bother? Do for your kids all year round, not just at the end of the year.

[RTD Interview]: Milly Esquire

In our effort to highlight niggas on the come up, I present a recent discussion with Milly Esquire. Currently reppin' Baltimore, Milly's formerly known as Mark Milly, and currently not giving a fuck about you if you aren't about getting bread and progressing. He's got a dope style about him, and is all about that constant hustle, and his Mind Over Matter project will be touching down in 2012. Here we find him breaking down how he got to now, what he does when he's not rapping his ass off, and some glimpses into one of the most dedicated out there doing it.

SoulBrotha "Hearbreache II (The Beginning)"

Here's another cut from SoulBrotha, produced by BroadNMarket, but this one did NOT appear on Southpaw. Nice familiar sample source, with SB pulling no punches and breaking down a vivid situation with his lyrics. Peep Part 1 then rock to this one.

DJ Andy Smith - Portishead & Massive Attack "Sampled" Mix (12/03/2011)

Shouts to GRANDGOOD for the heads up, by way of Andy Smith: "As part of the 'Sampled night' at Bar Music Hall in London on 3/12/11 (a night of original samples next to tracks that sampled them) I decided to do a short set of Portishead samples and tracks and then decided to do the same with early Massive Attack (& Wild Bunch) samples and tunes as well. It carries on into 80's Hip Hop samples and tracks after this that I might put up one day. It was 9.00 clock in the evening (somebody from the bar even told me to turn it down at one point as people were eating - That's appreciation for you!!!)"
