MIXTAPE EPISODE 36 – CL Smooth Mixtape

MIXTAPE EPISODE 36 – CL Smooth Mixtape

First things first, symptoms shouts to JR at shamanwork* for hooking me (and thus you all) up with this mixtape for this week’s hip-hop podcast.

So in case all y’all forgot about CL Smooth, stomatology here’s the re-introduction. Apparently dude is going to be dropping an album in the near future, and to give people a preview, he’s released a promo-only, all-freestyle mixtape. In classic mixtapeshow.net shameless bootlegging postmodernly artistical fashion, I’m bringing you the whole goddamn CD, including the bonus remix of Impossible. Check the playlist:

The CL Smooth Man on Fire Mixtape: The Freestyle Sessions (w/ J. Period, presented by Truelements and Blackheart Ent.)
Intro/Man on Fire Freestyle
Metamorphosis Freestyle
Get Down Freestyle
Top of My Game Freestyle
The Base/New York Freestyle
Listen Up Freestyle – sunshiiiiine…damn i’m ready for summer.
Runnin Freestyle – again, RIP Dilla.
Electric Relax Freestyle
Ill Bomb Freestyle
Hate It or Love It Freestyle – oh, come on, you liked this one too.
The Potion Freestyle
Blown Freestyle
Win Or Lose Freestyle
Indian Flute Freestyle
It’s On Freestyle
Guess Who’s Back Freestyle
Travelin Man Freestyle
Bonus: Impossible (J. Period Remix)
Elements of an MC
Again, this is the whole CD – normally I’d cut a few joints out on account of my not being a major major fan of such and such a beat, but please, where else are you gonna get this shit but from your boy?

Overall, this is some shit to rock in your iPod/CD Player/tape deck/whatever. And once again, respect to the people who got you this shit – JR, J Period, and the man hisself, CL Smooth. Feel free to pass this around, link it up, blah blah. For more info on the project though, hit up www.shamanwork.com.
Next week: the beattape episode, aka the all instrumental episode. If you’re looking to get on board with some of these heavyweight-ass producers you’ve been seeing pop up here and there on the mixtape show, you best get your beats in quick snap.

Still on deck: the all-south episode, and some other bonus round level shit. If you got anything you think is up to par, holler…

oh, by the way – here’s the cover art (click to enlarge).

* not shamanworks, which I somehow kept saying. my bad. shamanwork, singular.

  1. Awesome mixtape one of your best so far!!! loved it……Please hit us up with the artwork!

  2. Glad to hear CL Smooth doing his thing. I was a mad when he and Pete Rock split and was like, “Damn. CL was that smooth edge of the crew.”

    Big ups to JR and J Period. Can’t leave them out of it. It’s a team effrot and all deserve love. Big ups!

  3. Yeah, I can’t stress enough that this episode was made possible in a large (as in like 98%) part by JR and family. I’ve got some new material from them as well, so be on the lookout for that dropping pretty soon.

  4. Awesome return by one of the best mc’s ever to grace the mic . Cant wait for the new album in July ….Keep your head up CL ….Just goes to prove on these beats that CL don’t need Pete as much as the other way around ….Pete rocks got his head somewhere dark and smelly….I will be buying CL new stuff like a shot

  5. Back again peeping the site as usual. Yea, CL. If you read this, I’m nto large yet and I go back to NY (Mount Vernon and The Bronx) regularly. But if you ever need a cat that rhymes with precision (and cuts), hollar at me. You are one of my favorites and f I never make it to that mountain top, the one artist I want to say I rhymed on the mic with would be you.

    Stay up and keep that true form of Hip Hop alive!

  7. The lyrical Norman Rockwell returns. The man can paint a picture on any beat. CL strolls in like he’s only been gone a day or two with his saddle in hand and begins to ride and break each and every one of these beats as if they were tailor made for him. What happened to having a verbal skill set like this? Cats would do well to play this a couple of times, burn their current stash of raps and start all over again remaking theirselves in the image of the Mecca Don. This one will get into rotation in the G35. One of six coveted slots in my ride.

    Good drop Dex well worth the listen.
