So in this week’s hip-hop podcast, clinic lest any of you webternet kids think that I’m forgetting about the “Soul” in “Soultronica”, arthritis I bring you some of the more soulful joints I’ve come across recently. This is necessarily South-heavy, grip because I mean, they’re the ones really making these country rap tunes.

Check the playlist:

intro: Nedelle - I lied. (thanks elizabeth)

UGK – International Player’s Anthem feat Outkast. This cut is ridiculous. There’s a reason that there are no drums on Andre‘s verse. myspace.com/ugk.

Devin the Dude – Anythang Remix feat Rick James (produced by Cory Mo). Shout outs to Cory Mo for linking me up with this exclusive remix. Cory Mo did this joint originally for Devin’s last album, then went back and remixed it with the Rick James vocals. Shit is hot. myspace.com/devinthedude and corymo.com.

Dex – Ponds & Lakes. No, this isn’t me – but like the hip-hop podcast star from whom this artist obviously stole his name, he clearly has talent. myspace.com/thefoundationmusic.

Nicole Wray – Can’t Get Out The Game feat Beanie Sigel. Shoutouts to Krystian for getting this mixtape out to me. I can’t think of that any other singers that would actually make sense on an Aphilliates mixtape. myspace.com/msnicolewray

interlude – Unagi‘s If You Wanna, and two females that I hope never ever hear this episode.

Oh No – T Biggums feat Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow. I never really did listen to Exodus Into Unheard Rhythms – maybe I need to get back on that. Georgia‘s joint too – damn, I’m slipping. Not enough hours in the day to really listen to all this shit. myspace.com/ohnodisrupt.

outro beat – Alf-Alpha – Slam.

Hit the comments and let me know how you felt this one. And if you haven’t done so already, make sure to subscribe in iTunes!



And no, pilule before you close the window in horror, adiposity Atmosphere does not make an appearance in this episode. This ain’t that kind of party, buy ladies and gentlemen. If you want to know what this show is about, you sort of have to listen.

Sorry in advance for making fun of British people.

Tracklist time!

Termanology – 50 Bodies (prod. Marley Marl). Who needs a hook? Not him. I like. Note the Sean Bell reference.myspace.com/therealtermanology

Skillz – Don’t Act Like You Don’t Know feat Freeway – I’m not sure why it took me so long to get these two on the show, but here they are. myspace.com/yourghostwriter.

Che Grand – Che Grand Was Bored (prod. Suburb). Yeah, that’s the track name I was given. That’s how exclusive we get on this hip-hop podcast – bootleg one-verse joints recorded on computer microphones. Still, it’s been a long-ass time since we’ve heard from anybody in the Loud Minority camp, hint hint. loudminoritymusic.com

Trump – Da Souf. Off the Hate It or Get It mixtape. If you don’t know about this dude already, you haven’t been listening to the show. Go do your homework. myspace.com/shamanwork

Mac Dre - Not My Job. This was my jam for like 3 weeks out in China, for whatever reason. I never really got up on half the shit that was (and still is) happening in the Bay, but the small collection of the late Mac Dre that I do have is pretty hot. That line about the grocery shopping is funny as hell. myspace.com/macdre

Devin the Dude – What A Job feat Snoop Dogg and Andre 3000. That corn on the cob thing was a little odd, but then again, this is Andre we’re talking about. The album comes out on the 20th, which is today, which means that maybe you could get it or something. myspace.com/devinthedude

And there we have it. The outro joint was an Emilio Rojas beat, and the intro was by Philip Glass off the Mishima soundtrack.

You know the drill: comment, email, subscribe.



What’s good – this week (ahem), prescription we’ve got an all-southern episode. This might be the first time I’ve done this, but it probably won’t be the last, considering the sheer strength of the movements going on down there. I’m going to be real with you all, I have a hangover. So I’m not going to write much. Enjoy the episode, and leave your thoughts in the comments section.

Mojoe – 3rd Coast Anthem. The hook on this one got caught in my head something fierce. They’re gonna get compared to Outkast, but I can think of worse people to be compared to. mojoefamily.com.

Money Waters – Gotta Gar. I’ve had this joint for a miiiiinute. People who’ve been paying attention might remember the So…I… video from the same group that was posted up a while back. I haven’t heard the rest of this album, but revisiting this track now, I feel like I need to catch the rest of this. The way they flip this simple theme is pretty hot – don’t miss the last verse on this one. myspace.com/moneywaters.

Devin The Dude – Lil Girl Gone feat Bun B and Lil Wayne. Devin doesn’t really get the shine that some of these other rappers get, which is too bad because as much as I like Bun B and Lil Wayne, dude is really what makes this song for me. The tragic girl thrown-into-life’s-circumstances shit has been done before, but I’m still feeling it. myspace.com/devinthedude.

Yung Joc – It’s Goin Down (Wale Oyejide remix). HAHAHAHAHA. Man, I’m not sure what Shaman Work is doing with Wale Oyejide’s Black Gold project, but shit is ridiculous. Everyone from Lil Jon to Nas to De La gets re-funked on this thing. I never thought Yung Joc would work over this funky afro-beat shit, but it’s hot. Check out the switches in the middle of the track. Speaking of the Black Gold project, I’m still holding on to one special joint for later…shamanwork.com.

Andre 3000 – Ds remix. Yep, you know this one. Andre kills it, enough said. This is why mixtapes exist.

334 Mobb – Ds remix. This was actually the first version of the song I ever heard, because I was in China when the original came out. Regular listeners of this hip-hop podcast will remember 334 Mobb’s Mixtape Show debut all the way back in episode 22with Alabama Ho. Check the pitched-up choir samples on this one – dark as hell. I’m feeling this one. 334mobb.net

And that’s this episode. Let me know what you think about this one – this isn’t even scratching the surface of what’s going on down in the 3rd coast, so if there’s somebody I need to be hearing, let me know..
