Friday, Jan. 26th 2007 playlist

So I don't know if I got that job I interviewed for last Friday - should be hearing today about it... I hope. Job market is a cold bitch these days - seems like I'm putting my resume out everywhere, and for one reason or another, a nig can't get in. I got them BEATS, though. Peep game:


01/Perpetuum "Urban Afterglow VIP" [dubplate status, sorry. not sure when this will be out, but if/when it drops, grab it. Perp steps up the original's sultry feel with some aggresive drums, turning the sweet love-making to some sweaty, funky fuckfest fun. Holla. Get ready for his LP, btw...]
02/Styles P ft. Sheek Louch "Walk By" [nicely done track, even if Sheek only does the choruses. D BLOCK!]
03/Sean Price "King Kong" [Sean Price doesn't stop. From Jesus Price, Superstar, which should be out next week...]
04/No I.D. ft. Dug Infinite & Syndicate "Fate or Destiny" [One of my favorite underground Hip-Hop cuts of all time. If you aren't up on No ID, you should be... or you probably are. He not only produced Common's "I Used To Love H.E.R.", he did a lot of Common's early shit. Check out this wiki about him...]
05/Gym Class Heroes "Everyday's Forecast" [I only knew these cats from their video that has been getting much burn in the last couple of months, but I got intrigued and grabbed a few of their discs. Interesting stuff, at times, even if dude has a fucking Monroe. This one is really smooth. Not my usual cup of tea, but I like this track a lot.]
06/Trae ft. Lil' Boss "Bitches Ain't Shit" ["Trae da truth" kills it over that classic Dr. Dre beat. Check that 2xCD set, it's the truth.]
07/Slim Thug "Like A Boss (Nappy vs. Vex'd Dubstep Mix)" [you guys should already know about those THUGSTEP refixes I told you about earlier this week. Its funny how the original had bounce, but the dubstep brings in a new element. You can't tell me these shits ain't proper.]
08/Redman "Lost One Freestyle" [only version of this being passed around is a CLEAN one, so forgive me, but Redman murders this beat. His flow is that shit, most cats can't even get with it like they should. Where's his LP at?!!?!?]
09/Raekwon "My Corner" [I can't place the original sample in this, but I know I know it. This might be the first piece of the OB4CL2 LP... we'll see.]
10/Prodigy "Stuck On You" [nothing much to say about this one, aside from the fact that P + ALC = QUALITY. Can't wait for that Return of The Mac.]
11/Little Brother ft. Talib Kweli & Mos Def "Let It Go (Remix)" [some Mick Boogie mix CD shit from a few of the underground's most well-known niggas. That beat is slick, gotta love 9th with his sampling. Mos rocks it everytime over a tight beat, so you can't front on that. Who said Mos rhymes 2nd is crazy, though...]


You guys know Disco D passed recently, so here's a link to some of his productions. RIP...


For a final thought, I figured I'd mix things up a bit:

50 Cent "Ski Mask Way" [prod. by Disco D]:

Dom found this video mashup of his track "Imagination" and the movie Tron:

Slick Rick "Hey Young World" (was on VH1 Soul yesterday...)

peep Arsenio Hall diggin' into Vanilla Ice's ass back in the day:

RIP Bam Bam Bigelow: here is Rob Van Dam vs. Bam Bam Bigelow on classic ECW:
