I think if you’ve been keeping up on current [USA] events, mind you’ll know what the opening skit is about. Shout outs to Derek for creating/voicing the character of Johnathan America.

Other than that, though, this episode is all about first impressions. When you are a child of the MTV generation like I am, and you have crazy ADHD like I do, and you bought a Sidekick for the sole purpose of being able to IM and drive at the same time like I did, you rarely have the attention span for much beyond the first minute and a half or so of a new CD.

And as anybody who has ever sold indie CDs out of a trunk on a busy thoroughfare will tell you, the first impression is the difference between a sale and an angry look.

So this episode of your favorite hip-hop podcast is the First Impressions Episode – nothing but first tracks. Track 01s. This is probably one of my favorites so far. Hope you dig – have fun with this one.


J Dilla – Geek Down feat Busta Rhymes. I remember how fucking amped I was the first time I played this in the dusty Volvo. jdilla.org

Oh No – Intro. 27 beats in 3 days? Damn. As much as I like dude’s older brother, I can’t remember the last beat that Madlib made that made me want to hit somebody (feel free to refresh my memory in the comments though). This one does that to me, but maybe I’m just violent. myspace.com/ohnodisrupt.

Large Professor – Intro. The tempo might slow down a little on this cut, but your head should absolutely not stop nodding. myspace.com/thelargeprofessor.

J.R. Writer – To Be A Diplomat. I like how the dude fits a good portion of the backstory to his entire career into the first track of his CD, just like he’s trying to bring you up to speed on who he is and why you should care. This track inspired the entire episode. myspace.com/jrwriter

Murs – Intro. This is pretty much a given. If you don’t already own this album, get off of my internet. As soon as you put this cut in, you know the rest of the album cannot possibly be anything other than hot. myspace.com/murs316

M.I.A. – Banana Skit. 30 seconds of weird. I bet a lot of you actually skipped this track looking for “Galang”. Dummies. Get yrself an educayshuuuuuuuuuun! miauk.com

Agallah – Gangster. Summer of 2005 (okay I was late), this stayed in the deck like stupid. I replay this to the point where I should be sick of it, but I’m still not. This joint was my introduction to Purple City, period (again, slow). I don’t know if the mixtape is even available anymore, but if you can find it, there are some gems on Doomsday. myspace.com/agallahdonbishop.

Stanza – Enter In. I wish I had found this CD in my stash before I’d started the Soul episode. Two minutes of telling you who he is, and what you’re going to hear for the next 48. The production and the wordplay are both worth a rewind. Probably the best surprise I’ve found in the mail all month. Recommended. myspace.com/stanzahiphop.

Superiority Complex – Intro. See, these dudes get to talk all cocky like that in their intros, and the second I try things like that, females start looking at me crossways. Not fair. These two invite a lot of criticism based on their name alone (not to mention their insulting the rapping public at large), but I think their opening attack ain’t half bad. myspace.com/superioritycomplexmusic.

Now On – Ascension. I remember kinda being eh on this cut until they brought in them crazy-ass synths and rhodes. I actually have a hard time concentrating on the lyrics because the instro just really goes that hard. And then they drop in the turntablism…feel free to rewind this one as well. nowonmusic.com. [thanks josh]

intro beat: Unagi – Sacred Music
outro loop: The Go Gos – We Got The Beat.

Whoo boy. As always, hit up the comments section.



Oh shit, shop I’m actually on time with another episode. This is yet another concept episode, sildenafil one I’ve had on the stove for a few months now – the Freestyle Episode. Also, my image program ain’t working today so you’ll have to live without the cover art this time. If anybody wants to make me a picture, email me.

Ike Eyes – PSA Freestyle. Yep, you know this one. If you haven’t heard the Brooklyn Legends Vol. 1 mixtape by now, you’re missing the fuck out. myspace.com/ikeeyes

DK – Go Crazy Freestyle. DK is sort of ridiculous with some of this shit. Sample quote: “We made white move like gentrification”.

Skit – Poin Lean. Yep, a “Shoulder Lean” beatjack – but this is actually superior in pretty much every way to the original. I mean, the cat switched up the chorus. Sample quote: “Hit cupid on the phone / Ask him where’s the love at”. myspace.com/datsskit

Allstar – untitled freestyle. This was off a Gangsta Grillz / Yo Gotti mixtape, but this particular track got more play in my deck than any of the Yo Gotti joints. Sample quote: “That’s for y’all Steve Urkel-ass niggas / Hang around rats all day, Ninja Turtle-ass niggas” cashmoney-records.com

Jay-Z – Hot 97 Freestyle. Courtesy of DJ Mr. King. I’m not even going to comment on this one.

J.R. – BBC 1Xtra Freestyle w/ Benji B. One of the only MCs I can think of that sounds good even without cursing. I definitely have a lot of respect for JR and what he’s doing. No sample quotes here, but check the bizarre-ass beginning. shamanwork.com

Agallah – Freestyle. Agallah is pretty much a staple around here at the Mixtape Show. This is off the Propane Piff mixtape, and again, isn’t even the best joint. And yes, getting shit stolen out your house is terrible. Lock your doors, kids. myspace.com/agallahdonbishop

Skit – Chevy Ridin. Yes, another beatjack from the heretofore unknown Skit. This cat literally sent me three mp3s in an email that contained nothing but the mp3s themselves, his name, and his city (Houston). No promo, no onesheet, no nothing. I’m fucking with that. Again, the dude sounds better than the original. Skit, you got a mixtape or something? Shit. Sample quote: “Playa I don’t need a roof / Scarin’ niggas like Beetlejuice”. myspace.com/datsskit

And of course, if you crazed fans out there want to get up on the show yourself, feel free to leave a freestyle yourself on the Mixtape Show Hotline: 310-928-6876, and you just might get featured on the most popular hip-hop podcast on the internets.



Damn, treat you get busy for like 2 weeks and people start blowing up your email.

So once again with the concept episodes – this time it’s some shit that I’ve had in the lab for literally a year – the Nintendo Mixtape. Every beat on this joint either uses Nintendo samples or just kinda has that vibe. Trust me, migraine this whole episode is hot.
