MIXTAPE SHOW EPISODE 26
This week, it’s a break from all them interviews, and a return to the mixes. I’m gonna go with the low-graphics version this time – what do y’all prefer?
East Flatbush Project f/ Stress and Dox - Who I’m Is. Now, I’m not going to pretend to understand whatever sort of strange sub-grammar would lead someone to decide that “Who I’m Is” is coherent English, but that’s not really my place. My place is, however, to tell you that this joint is dope. Thus: “This joint is dope”. There. (a little more info on EFP here).

Sean Price – Jamaican. I can’t recall the original sample used here, but I know this is a throwback to BDP‘s “Stop the Violence”. Of course, when the chorus runs “Grab your dicks and let the clip pop”, you know that the Teacha‘s message isn’t entirely intact here. That said, the joint is hot. And if you haven’t heard of Sean P yet, well, I don’t know what to tell you. I guarantee you’ll get the hook caught in your head. Don’t blame me if you get in trouble for repeating it in third period. Buncha high-school bastards (check out seanprice.com).
Ike Eyes f/ Agallah - On My Grind. If any of the songs in this episode could incite a riot, it’s probably this one. Agallah is on production and lends some bars, and of course my man Ike Eyes comes through with some lyrics that are at once hard and esoteric. You can’t really argue with that. (more info on Ike at his myspace).
Ike Eyes f/ Rebel Relz & Tito I – It’s a Shakedown. Before I forget, I have to give a shout to Ike for holding me down here with these two exclusives. Ike emailed these two to me literally about four days ago. Be on the lookout for an interview with dude, coming Real Soon Now (TM).
East Flatbush Project – Pregame 2005. Respect to Spencer (for hire!) for connecting with me, and for getting this joint out to me. Edgy, nervy, paranoid type beats and lyrics…I listen to this one whenever the feds drive by. This one definitely wasn’t on the 12″…
Pok Dog f/ K.L.A.S.S.i.C. – On Lean. I really couldn’t close out a show without doing some of this West Coast thang. Remember that banger that I started Episode 22 of with? This is that same dude, representing the Ox (the Ox, right Pok?). I haven’t heard more than a few of Pok’s joints, but from what I’ve seen, he consistently puts out versatile, hard material. Pok, mang, get at me with some more of this shit! (check out pok‘s myspace )
And that’s it for episode #26. Thanks to all the MCs, producers, artists in general, labels, and what have you that helped make this one possible. Be on the lookout for Episode #27 – it’s gonna be an interview, but not with an MC, per se. Trust me though, it’s gonna be one of the most important 30 minutes you’re going to spend for a long while. Here’s a hint: It’s with the dude who is making the bling documentary.
