MIXTAPE SHOW EPISODE 16 – the katrina edition
Remember those posts I made about a possible Katrina hip-hop podcast show? Well, drugs here it is, hospital on the most known unknown rap podcast series on the internets – episode #16, the Katrina Mixtape.
|First up, some heat from 4-IZE. Dude used to be in a group with Luda back in ’91 called Loudmouth Hooligans. I aint heard of em till now but apparently he was on dude’s first couple releases. Something y’all prolly ain’t expected from one of my shows, but get the fuck used to it. Good track. Paranoid as fuck, but good. Look for more from him, but in the meantime see what’s up at 4ize.com..||
4-IZE – Can’t Eat.
Hood Affiliates – Hurricane Katrina Song.
|I haven’t heard a name for this track other than the one provided here, but the joint is good. HA definitely bring it from a hood perspective, and remind you who’s really responsible for this shit. Don’t ever tell me that rappers don’t read the news. I haven’t heard much else from Hood Affiliates, but this joint here kinda makes me want to hear more. Anyone want to shoot a brother some mp3s? There’s a temporary site up at www.hoodaffiliates.com, hopefully they get on that soon.|
|What up internet nerds. All y’all done heard this, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good song. I saw this all over the web a long ass time ago, but some y’all maybe ain’t heard it, so here you go. Clever reference of Kanye’s own lyrics, you know, politics is on point, etc, etc. And the title is classic. Hit up their website, it’s more info down there. Try k-otix.com.||
The Legendary K.O. – George Bush Don’t Like Black People.
|Somebody tell the boss he shouldn’t be the boss anymore. Yeah, it’s Mos. You know who that is, and if you don’t, well, I don’t know. Wikipedia or something. Hot track, and I never even liked that fucking Nolia Clap beat. I actually hated it, still do. But come on. He calls out Bono. Bono. This is a classic. mosdefinitely.com.||
Mos Def – Katrina Klap.
Chuck D – Hell No, We Ain’t All Right.
|Yeah, Chuck D. This came out a while ago in poem form, acapella. So far to my knowledge he hasn’t done a song, but this is an excerpt from some stuff he said on a radio program a while ago. I just looped up a sample and presto. You really should have heard this already, but if you haven’t, make sure to pay attention.www.publicenemy.com.|
That’s it for this episode, then. Be on the lookout for Grand Larceny Radio Volume 2 coming at you very soon. Also in the pipeline: other mixtape reviews, some brand new artists, an interview I already recorded and gotta postproduce, and fuck, a whole bunch of shit. All you indie label heads out there, get at me, we’re moving…
Oh, yeah. We got a sponsor. Motorola, in case you couldn’t guess. Shit, I gotta eat. Show some love, lemme know what y’all think… this was on the old network. but if motorola wants to fuck with us again, shit…
DRAG AND DROP (not click!) this into iTunes to subscribe to this show and get all the hot joints first…
