Yo. Welcome back to the program. I’ve actually got an interview/feature in the works (I’ll give you two guesses as to what the topic is), nurse but in the meantime, pharm here’s another concept episode.

This time, it’s all about rock-influenced tracks. Now I obviously could have gone with mashups (thanks for the tip on that Modest Mouse+Weezy track, Robin), but that would be cheating. Check the tracklist, and if you need more information on the DVD giveaway, check the post below.

Track List.

Intro I – Black Sabbath.
Game Theme/Intro II – Patrick Goble – New Shred.

Hevi Medal – 730 [dex ADHD edit]. The video for this cut is wild on some serious skurry insanity shit. If you want the full version of the song, check out their myspace page. myspace.com/mophevimedal.

Deaf In The Family – Southern Man feat Bavu Blakes. Apparently the original sample was what inspired the penning of Sweet Home Alabama, but fuck that song. Mr. Bavu, who I think dropped the “Blakes” thing, breaks down some race/class knowledge on some college-educated shit. You can listen to the whole album on the site, deafinthefamily.com.

Lil’ Flip – Rockstar. This song is pretty ridiculous. But don’t act like it isn’t catchy. This is why I love mixtapes – you always get these ridiculous-ass joints in the end of the CD that are better than half the rest of the tape. myspace.com/lilflip.

RJD2 – Exotic Talk. Please, Def Jux, don’t sue me. I have been fucking with RJD2‘s shit for a very long time now. I liked The Horror and alla that, but really Since We Last Spoke was the one that spent the most time in my Volvo, including that weepy-ass “Making Days Longer”. I hear he has a new album out, which I unfortunately haven’t heard, but I’m hearing positive things about it. He’s actually on tour now, so some of you herbs might want to catch him live. myspace.com/rjd2.

Deaf In The Family – Mr Blue Sky feat Scavone. I never thought someone would have the balls to flip this one, but these dudes actually did a pretty fucking bang-up job on this one. After you finish listening to the show, and entering the contest, get thee to a record store and cop the original ELO version. 7 minutes of overwrought, multithematic, hairsprayed rock godditude. Can I get a amen. deafinthefamily.com.

DCNY - Skye Blues. See that? Mr Blue Sky, Sky Blues. I am really, really clever, ouxu. Really clever. This is another group I used to rock back on my college show, and for some reason when I was mixing this show down the CD just jumped out at me. Recommended for the boom-bap fans. myspace.com/tresmons.

Outro I – Black Sabbath
Outro II – Calamine – Sealab 2021 Theme.

Swimmers – The Unofficial Swimmers Bootleg feat Lil Jon, E-40 and Keak da Sneak. Actually I don’t have a title for this. The Swimmers are not responsible for this soundclash. Thank you, nxt. myspace.com/swimmersband.

And that’s all for this one. What did you think?

  1. i love lil flips version of guns n roses
    you touched it deep this time fool
    i cant really have any hate towards you anymore
    back then u were ballin if you rocked a limousine

  2. Dex, love the theme shows…was listening to Ep 56 and the rock show and that gave me an ideal (you may have already had)…how about a non-US hip hop show….strictly foreigners…?? Don’t know if you could swing that but it’d be cool.

  3. Brer – I knew you were waiting on that Def Jux, hahaha..

    and Aush – you’re reading my mind. There’s something very similar in the works right now.

  4. I agree with Aush…a “Non-U.S.” edition would be dope I think…there is some HOT Japanese Hip-Hop..like: Lamp Eye and Zeebra. Buddha Brand was dope before they split up…



  5. Greg – okay, now you’re taking this even further than I originally planned, in a good way. This is now the official “suggest some foreign rappidy raps” thread. Anyone want to put me on to some non-English speaking tracks (only qualification is the tracks/artists MUST be hot) – drop a comment here and we’ll see where it takes us.

    Where did Dave go? That dude had a list of French hip-hop.

  6. I try have dedicated a good amount of time trying to find hiphop that isn’t in English. Here is a list of just some of the chewnz I have collected over the years.

    they should all be ARTIST – TRACK, but who knows.

    Akhenaton – Bruizza, hal – how it is
    Bambi Cruz – Ouvre les yeux
    Booba – Numero 10 (Probably my favorite french chewn)
    DJ KrOc – Party break
    Fonky Family – 10 – Tu Nous Connais
    I AM – Le dernier coup (These dudes are ruff, check out most of their albums)
    Inconnu – Morceau 24
    Janik & arsenik – La route est dure
    Mc solaar – Gangster moderne
    Ntm – Ma Benz
    Passi – Emeutes
    Shurik’n – Samurai
    Ttc – Dans le club

    afra – its beat box

    KROSS – rebirth of kross

    I had a couple of polish tracks…hmmm I can’t find them.

  7. Forgot to mention these Korean dudes. Pretty ruff, but its kinda like party rock type shit. Bbong-jjak yi-ya-gi uses the beat from Non Phixions “Black Helicopters” pretty good track.

    LAMP EYE – SYOUGEN [証言].mp3
    See on youtube:

    Let me know if you are diggin’ these or not.

    I have some German and French stuff somewhere…let me dig it up…


  9. God damn there goes my weekend. Greg and Chiam, good looking out, for real. And that Shougen cut is kind of hot. I’m a little up on King Giddra, but not enough.

    I’m actually excited about this now. Anybody else want to pitch in? Hell, this would be a good opportunity for anyone out there outside the US that is an artist themselves to make themselves known.

  10. ok man, i got a laptop runnig cubase, a shure 8700 and us-based hosting, how do we do it?

  12. Yo Dex, just stumbled upon this gem and thought I’d check to see if these old threads get checked still. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=323051853971311867# Thought I’d throw some humorous Welsh rappers in the mix for a world rap or funny ass rap episode.
    Also, check out Orishas if you haven’t already. Cuban guys that went to the Buena Vista Social Club to get their tracks, so they started with a damn near failure premise. Anyways, keep it coming and take it easy. BC

  13. BC – oh man, I know all about the GLC. I remember when they sent us this CD to the radio station I used to work at, and being sort of upset that we couldn’t play it because of all the curse words.

    Incidentally this was easily my favorite song on that CD.
