Been busy. I’ll spare you the details, clinic but it involved a lot of alcohol and me losing some things necessary to make the show. I’m back on board now, erectile though, prosthesis kids, so protect ya necks.

Lupe Fiasco – Kick Push. It’s always nice to see people breaking down barriers for Black people. I remember when I was younger, it was all but illegal to get on a skateboard if you were darker than oh, say, Denise on the Cosby Show. Considering that Lupe probably has at least a year or so on me, it seems that dude was really just on some of that Rosa Parks civil disobedience shit. I’ll be damned if any (hypothetical) son of mine is ever caught on a fucking plywood board with wheels strapped to it, though. lupefiasco.com

Wordsworth – Run (Oddissee Remix). I got a double CD from Wordsworth a bit ago – I forget who sent it to me, but good for them. (by the way, peace to David at Halftooth). It’s funny, because even though dude has people like Da Beatminaz lacing up tracks for him, the second CD – the Mirror Music Oddissee Remixes – spent an awful lot longer in my Volvo CD player. Words seems to be a big fan of the epic story type joint, so if you’re into that, I’d recommend checking more of his shit out. halftooth.com.

Gnarls Barkley – Crazy. I heard this was on KROQ. I don’t give a fuck. Come on, it’s Cee-lo. Also, I felt like this was a good way to publicly apologize to Dangermouse for publicly calling his last project an abortion. gnarlsbarkley.com

Lil Wayne aka Weezy featuring Snyp Life. Okay, enough of that soft shit for the kids. Here’s where I bring the funk. Weezy kills it, as does Snyp. This is off the latest Sin Sizzerb mixtape. sizzerb.com.

Sin Sizzerb feat Camron, Bezel, and Tom Gist – Thanks To Me (Certified). Oh, shit. Yes, you’ve heard the other version with my man Agallah, now check out the motherfucking remix. I don’t think I need to say much about this one – if you need a reason to download this episode, this right here is probably it. Sin, get at me with that new shit… sizzerb.com

Scan - Freestyle. If y’all think you can do better and want to be featured on the freestyle section next week, hit up the hotline voicemail – (310) 928 MTSN.That’s it for this episode. Coming soon, be on the lookout for even more crazy shit on the hottest hip-hop mixtape podcast you’ve ever seen, ever.

Oh yeah, that reminds me. I’m putting together an all-instros episode in beattape fashion. If you got beats, get at me. kucrdex [at] gmail [dot] com. rolllllll



Cheyeah. So this is pretty basic. I got a dope show, prostate and some tickets to give out for next week. This is for the Exile (Sound in Color) Dirty Science Tour, featuring Exile, Blu, Ta’raach (Platinum Pied Pipers), Aloe Blacc, etc etc. Hit me up if you want to get on the guest list for any of the following dates: april 16th – Kansas MO @ PNut Downtown
april 18th – Iowa City @ Gabes Oasis
april 20th – Miami FL @ Sweat Records (In-store, so you dont need tickets. Just go.)
april 20th – Miami FL @ I/O Lounge (live performance)
april 24th – New York NYC @ Rothkow/ Beatminerz
april 25th – Atlanta GA @ Apache Cafe
Now for the playlist. (ps – intro/outro beat = Platonic – Alternate Thursday.)
Exile f/ Blu – Narrow Path. This, combined with the other Exile/Blu joint you heard on this site (check the archives son!) is what made me realize that Sound in Color was running with some fucking heat. Turns out Blu is singing the hook, but you really have to see Aloe Blacc singing it with him to get the full experience. Dope beat, hot track. soundincolor.com.
Scienz of Life f/ MF Doom – Yikes. I think Doom produced this one. This is off the Leak Edition Vol 1 that John Robinson shot me (what up JR). You pretty much already know the story with this one without listening to it. Real simple sampling, esoteric raps. Listen. shamanworks.com. [good looking out Aush]
Modill – Nod (radio exclusive). I don’t know, it said “radio exclusive” on the CD. This was my joint for a little while a couple years back. Modill actually released a new record just recently, and apparently I duped Chess into thinking it would be a good idea to let me play some of that shit on the show. Be on the lookout for that, and cop up kiddies. evproductions.com.
Von Pea – 1st Date. Nicolay on the beats. I don’t know Nicolay, but he’s apparently kina dope. Please don’t drift off on this beat though, because the story VP is telling does not end how you expect it to. I’m not going to say much more than that. God damn this episode is turning out well so far. loudminoritymusic.com.
Chill Will – Freestyle. Straight out of D-town. This one came via the Mixtape Show Hotline at (310)-928-6876. Breaks up in the middle, but that’s cell phones for you. Chill Will is part of the Certified Ballaz – not much info on them yet, but we’ll see… Second southern freestyle though. This should be proof for all you dumb motherfuckers out there that the Mixtape Show is not an LA thing, not a West Coast thing, but a fucking rap thang. Pay attention.Exile f/ Ghostface – Milk ‘Em. Oh, come on, it’s Ghostface. Do I need to write anything about this? Just download and learn. soundincolor.com.
That’s this week’s episode, though. Be on the lookout for episode 35 of the fucking best rap podcast on the entire internets, all of them. Again, if you want them tickets, holler at your boy. yeeeeeeeeeeah



Now, hospital the show has been out for a minute, and a lot of people seem to be wondering why I don’t show white people any love on the show. I mean, for every ten black rappers I put on the show, there’s like one white rapper. Where’s the equality? I thought racism was over, since, like 1965 and shit, right?So, in my attempt to make peace with my caucasoid brothers and sisters, and show that I really do appreciate all of you non-melanin-having kids supporting the show, I have decided to dedicate an entire show to you. Never let it be said that the Mixtape Show hates white people, because at the Mixtape Show Hip-Hop Podcast, Whitey Is Alrightey ™.

Anyway, this week, it’s all about the Beastie Boys, since, as everyone knows, they (and Eminem) are the only rap artists that ever get any play on alt-rock stations.

All joking aside, it seems the the Beastie Boys themselves have made a bunch of their acapellas freely available on their site, and an entire community of people has gone wild on that shit and is churning out remixes like there’s no tomorrow. This is but a small sample of that collective ouvre.
Strictly for my C.A.U.C.A.S.I.A.N.Z.

Obviously, the following songs are all originally Beastie Boys joints, unless otherwise noted.

DJ BC – MotherNaturesRump. I think this surfaced just after the Grey Album, which, incidentally, made me appreciate Jay a little bit more than I think I had been originally, because a lot of the production on the Black Album was pretty forgettable. Anyway, I think I remember BC’s Beastles project getting some fame on the internets, and for pretty good reason – it’s actually pretty good. Check out the mashups section on djbc.net.

Taco Zip – Intergalactic. Intergalactic is probably the most recent Beastie Boys joint that I can stomach. I mean, seriously. The last album, whatever it was called? 5 Boroughs? Pretty terrible in general. Intergalactic was the fucking joint for a full week and a half when I was in middle school though. Took me 5 years to realize that that robot voice was saying “Intergalactic Planetary”. I always thought it was just mumbling robot talk. Back to the remix, though, Taco Zip (no comment on the name) does pretty well with maintaining the feel of the original while still adding a whole bunch of nice shit in the background. Sirens? Nice touch. Check out more of this shit at beastieboysremixes.com.

Joakizmo - Intergalactic. Hear that part in the mix where everything starts to get sort of weird? Yeah, that’s where I faded in J’s mix. I would have let the shit run longer, but a) the vocal mix is a bit off and b) it’s a bit fucking scary. Whatever dude did to this joint, I like it. Totally changed the whole vibe of the song. Check his site here.

Random radio mix. I don’t remember where I found this, but this is another Shake Your Rump remix with some of them beats you all remember from middle school. Green Lantern? I forgot.

Joakizmo - Root Down. I think this track right here was actually what inspired me to do a Beastie Boys remix episode. I don’t remember the original, but you can’t deny the talent on this remix. Joakizmo is obviously pretty talented. He’s got a bunch of other Beastie Boys remixes on his site – you should check them out maybe.

Mobley - So Watcha Want. You remember the days. 1997. Seventh grade. And for a few brief, glorious months, it was all about Fatboy Motherfucking Slim and the Rockafeller Skank. I swear to god, I have never seen anything with the power to make sweaty white girls go absolutely fucking apeshit as that song, aside from maybe crystal meth, but of course that came much later. Either way, this song is quite obviously channeling Mr. Cook, and in a good way. From what I remember from Mobley’s description, this was made forever ago on a bunch of assorted studio equipment. All the must-have big beat shit is there – bongo samples, beat juggles, squelching synth lines. This one stayed in the mp3 player for a while, trust me. And come on, they call me dex digital. You think I don’t fuck with electronic? Pay attention. I ain’t got a site for you mobley…get at me!

Tommy Danger - Strawberry Fields. Unless I’m mistaken, the sample is a Beatles one – which brings us full circle. See how it all comes together? I’m so fucking clever. Anyway, definite shoutouts go to Tommy Danger for supporting the Mixtape Show. Dude’s got his own show out in Harlem, and has at least one video out, and trust me, it’s fucking ridiculous. Dude definitely has his own style to it. www.tommydanger.net.
Yeah, so that’s it for this episode. Tell your friends – and if this wasn’t your flavor, just wait until next week.

Oh yeah – the beat is Ray Cash f/ Scarface - Bumpin’ My Music. FYI.
