You all ever heard of this thing? Type A personality? It’s like I can’t even slow down here. Start up this episode, illness take a deep breath, and try to see the big picture here – it’s bigger than just your issues, kids.

Aside from that, though, I got two pairs of tickets to Nicolay + Kay shows to give away – one in each of these venues:
April 12 – The Forbidden City, Hollywood, CA
April 18 – The Black Cat, Washington, DC

So, I guess I’m supposed to do some sort of “contest” or something. I’ll make this one easy – just write me an email or leave a comment and tell me the number of the last Mixtape Show episode in which Nicolay appeared. Extra consideration given if you make the comment interesting. I’ll pick the winners pretty much asap. This will also be going on the Facebook thing too, so…get moving. Enough of that, let’s do it…


Intro beat – CL Smooth and Skyzoo – Perfect Timing instrumental.

Big Boi – Royal Flush feat Andre 3000 and Raekwon. It’s like the three of them sat down and said “Listen here, Andre. You rap good. Have like seven verses.” And Andre said “Okay”. And it was good. myspace.com/outkast.

The Roots - 75 Bars (Black‘s Reconstruction). I didn’t count them, but if there are 75 bars here, they are all good. Suburb put me up on this one and I’m still kicking myself for taking this long to actually get to it. I’m sometimes not too big on The Roots’ recorded material, but this is just kind of great. Even if there are probably more niggas in this song than bars (bonus points for anyone that counts them up!). myspace.com/theroots

Percee P – Untitled Percee P Track. Or at least that’s word-for-word how it was labeled on this CD. Dig the rhyme patterns that dude uses, and the Billy Jack quotes (I think I should check this film). Once again, kids – the bigger picture. “Payback’s a bitch, America / Karma toomyspace.com/perceep

Jay Electronica – Colors. Seriously, fam? 45 seconds? Don’t worry, kids, I got more.

Guilty Simpson – Pigs. I don’t think I really forsaw anyone attempting to rap over this Madlib jawn. Can’t hate on this dude for taking this one on, because he kinda tore it up. Quotable lines abound. myspace.com/guiltysimpson

Rhymefest – Mentor Mike feat Michael Jackson. What could I possibly have been doing that was so important that I didn’t listen to this song until this morning? Wow. myspace.com/rhymefest

Spec Boogie – Bed Stuy. The beat is just ridiculous. This one came highly recommended from our good friend Suburb, who is currently too busy eating Hot Chee-tos or something to let me listen to his new record. That’s fine, buddy. Spec, though – this is a great track. Plenty more of the same on his myspace. myspace.com/specboogie

Nicolay and Kay – Grand Theft Auto. Yes, the subject matter matches the title. If you dig this cut, hey, maybe try to get yourself a couple tickets. I really shoulda saved this for the next edition of the Nintendo Mixtape, but hey, who knows when that one’s gonna actually drop…myspace.com/nicolay.

Outro beat – Amplive / Radiohead – Weird Fishez. You all have the Amplive remixes of Radiohead’s In Rainbows, right? Good.

Shouts to Aimee, and everyone else that made this episode possible. Bedtime.

  1. What up…I don’t know the number of the last mixtape show your boy was on (I just started listening to your show), but I work in the D.C. area and would like to check out the show. Hit me back.

  2. Dex……this podcast’s as hard as petrified dog dookie.

    nuff niceness up in here. guilty simpson is the present and future. black thought is just a natural born rhyme killa

    that rhymefest joint is a little surreal.

  3. J – gotta do some homework then!

    Rbeez – haha, wasn’t sure if I was supposed to take that as a good thing at first. But yes, everything I’ve heard off this Rhymefest joint is surreal. Surreal is, again, the new black.

  4. Diggin’ th e mix man; keep it up. I feel ya, sometimes you gotta just “Slow Down”. Peace and hair grease. -B

  5. Uh-oh, I feel a rhyme coming on:

    Type A in the crunch
    Type B after lunch
    Then weave between the two
    Like fake hair-do
    Fake tatoo & cyclone spin
    Peace to wiki & Dex Digi
    On the mix he gets busy
    Or got
    like slowing it down
    a pro w/ the sound
    can manage it w/ out
    dumbing it down
    I handle that
    Cruise control
    & eat on the run
    See me stroll in my sleep
    Won’t stop for no one : >

  18. Yo man i just got into your podcast, got a microsoft zune last week and stumbled across your shit when i was looking through podcasts. damn am i ever glad i did, between the first four ive really listened to, i think its one of the best collections of random, but really good and true to its roots, hip hop. if only we had some of this getting airplay. its like what rhymefest was talking about in that mentor mike song. you can only be shown/told a lie so many times, and even speak a lie, so many times until it begins to sound like truth. but at least youre out here keeping the real truth spoken amongst a few of us.
    keep that shit up, and i know i’ll keep listening. oh and by the way, congrats on making it through the vicoden haze haha peace

  19. Come back to the states Dex…. I need my mixtapeshow fix.


    I’m sure one of your boys could do a guest show for ya otherwise ;)


  20. hey dex, stop being stingy with the ish man! I’m jonesing up here in the frozen tundra.

    digthatfunk, sorry to hear about you getting that zune…my condolences.

  21. i want mooooooooore! thankfully since im just getting into this show ive been going back and getting into some older podcasts. also, lol RBeezy. i like zune much more than ipod… i shouldve gone creative labs though, ive always liked what they come out with. i take it your an ipod fan then? zune software sucks obv but there are hacks for that haha
