This Is Thugstep

Glad this one is finally out. A few years ago, DJ Nappy, myself and some of our compatriots in this THUGSTEP thing were discussing the need for a definitive mixtape/compilation for the THUGSTEP genre that we've been flying the flag for. The idea got swept under the rug, and the vision you see in the cover came to me. I had always had a folder of cuts that typified this dubstep/Hip-Hop hybrid and wanted to showcase some of those, along with a number of other blends, refixes and original tracks that have popped up over the last five years. This tape starts out properly with DJ Nappy's "Act A Fool" blend of Coki and Lil Jon, which was the first THUGSTEP refix ever done. We touch a number of other favorites, including Caspa remixing Ludacris and Redman on different cuts, Gimpmode (RIP) blending Emalkay and Gucci Mane, Bare reworking Wiz Khalifa's "Black & Yellow", Snoop Dogg coasting over Chase & Status' "Eastern Jam", a Weezy cut that's my personal favorite and the mighty "Flocka Riddim" from DJ Cable and Fused Forces. Hell, the insane WTF?! flip of dead prez's "Hip Hop" is even included. And this is only the beginning. Planning on keeping these compilations dropping in the summer of 2012, so by the time it's over, there should be NO QUESTION of what THUGSTEP is. Shouts to @Theotisjones for the amazing cover, and for DJ Nappy and ClubTapes for the home.
