First off, recipe thanks to those that voted in the Podcast Awards. They should be announcing in a few days, discount but regardless of the outcome, I appreciate the support.

This episode we return to the Beatjacks & Remixes concept – if for some reason you didn’t catch the first one, you can hear it here - right after you check this one. Let’s get into it…


Paul Wall – And Then What Remix feat Coota Bang and Archie Lee. I don’t know that this is the official title for this thing, but this came off of the People’s Champ sampler, which stayed in my CD deck a lot longer than his actual CD did. Say what you want about his nursery school rhymes, I find Paw Waww to be a pleasant listening experience, thank you very much. This joint shows what kind of shit Swishahouse was (is?) really capable of. djpaulwall.com.

Superiority Complex – Butter. Yes, as in they re-did the old Tribe joint. This takes balls, and apparently they have these in, uh, large, uh, supply. Some backpackers out there might scream sacrilege, but I dig this one. You’ve heard them here before – check them out in the First Impressions episode. myspace.com/superioritycomplexmusic.

Hell Razah – Freestyle. Off of his pre-album sampler, which somebody decided not to tag the filenames on, so I don’t know what it’s supposed to be called. But got-damn the opening bars on this one go hard. “I’m sick of marching in these rallies“…Cosign. myspace.com/razahrubiez.

Nas/Dextrus – Made You Look (CMP Remix). Got this joint a long time ago from Dextrus. Dude’s a software engineer by trade, but that doesn’t stop him from getting down behind the boards. myspace.com/dextrusdalabassistant.

Jay Electronica - My World (Nas Salute). The mystery kid shows up again, courtesy of Andres pointing out some of his leaked work. A little less surreal than the last offering perhaps, but still pretty damn out there. myspace.com/jayelectronica.

Pharrell – When Skateboard Came. Off the mixtape he and DJ Drama did some time back. I’m not sure what it was that made me like this cut so much, but it’s just ridiculous. There’s a reason that Skateboard P stays behind the boards most of the time, but when he comes out, it’s pretty entertaining. The rest of the mixtape ain’t bad, either. myspace.com/pharrell.

Pharrell – Liquid Swords. Apparently dudes really like Wu-Tang.

Jay-Z – Encore (Block Burners Remix feat Z Nuff). Am I crazy, or is this instrumental ridiculous? This instrumental is ridiculous. True story – I never actually listened to the whole Black Album until I’d heard its multiple reinterpretations via people like DJ Lt Dan and Danger Mouse. But this version sons most of the other cuts out there, easy. I have absolutely no information on these people, though.

DJ Virus – 2004 ITF World Championships Set. There’s a good reason that there isn’t a whole lot of turntable wizardry on the Mixtape Show – it’s just not really my flavor. This guy kinda kills it though – pay attention to the end. myspace.com/sdvirus.

Intro beat -
Iain Haywood – Bad Motherfucker. Finally got a myspace for this dude! myspace.com/12pads.

So – as usual, hit the comments, link up on the facebook group, and just generally holler at a scholar.



All fucking right then. This week we’re getting into some more diverse shit. Check the tracklist, infection and download this shit. Don’t forget to subscribe to the show.

Dwele feat. Che Grand – Lady In Red. This joint is off of the “A Sensual Evening With Che Grand” mixtape. I don’t necessarily want a sensual evening with dude, but the music is generally pretty hot – this should give you an idea of what an indie label is actually capable of. I’d highly recommend copping the whole mixtape, if for no reason other than to hear the skits in between the tracks. Shit is off the wall. loudminoritymusic.com

feat. J. Dilla – Thrilla. Oh, how cute – the producer and the track rhyme! Speaking of rhymes, the recently departed genius fucking smashes the first verse of this shit. Body bling like C-3P0?!? ohhhhhhh shit. The man will be missed. Shouts to Jon and everyone else at Sound In Color for giving your boy free reign on this shit. soundincolor.com

Sa-Ra – Big Fame. Okay, I know I made a comment in the show that could be taken the wrong way. Don’t get it twisted – I mean “bootleg” in the best sense of the word. I’m not sure if their record is going to be like this, but the sampler is absolutely off the fucking wall with the skits. Dear Sa-Ra: please do more of that shit. Since when does having a cookout equal “being productive”? All of you can hate all you like, but if Sa-Ra isn’t a part of this new space funk black music shit, then I’m caucasian. soundincolor.com

The Jones Girls feat. Che Grand – Nights Over Egypt. Yes, once again, an unauthorized remix off of the Sensual Evening mixtape. This should show all of you random-ass kids rapping over dead Dre beats over and over again something – namely, that anybody can do that shit. If you can rap over that electro groove shit, you have my respect, and possibly a coveted spot on the hottest rap podcast in the history of womankind. Che is a weird dude, but you can’t deny the talent. Dude rips this joint gently, if that’s possible. Fuck it, just listen. loudminoritymusic.com

Ol’ Dirty Bastard – Drunk Game. As I said in the show, this track really blurs the line between genius and insanity – which pretty much sums up the majority of the dude’s oeuvre. I have no idea who produced this – it could be RZA, or it could be one of those Casio joints that play when you push the red “demo” button. If you actually forget for a moment that it’s Unique Ason singing, you’ll notice that the man actually kinda sons about 80% of R&B singers out there. Which is good!!! which is good…. wutangcorp.com

Tanya Morgan
– She Moved Outta Cincy. No, I haven’t revoked my strict “no female emcees” policy* (seriously, what the fuck is up with the ladies?! The second one of y’all hit me with some heat, I’ll put you on) – Tanya Morgan is actually three dudes that are labelmates of Mr. Che Grand. You might recognize Von Pea’s voice from a couple episodes ago. Is it just me, or is Loud Minority’s catalog full of joints about really horrible shit happening? Well, either way – TM is supposedly hot. If anyone wants more, I’ll see what I can do… loudminoritymusic.com

Damn, I managed to keep it short this week. Feel free to pass the information on, and be watching for the People Under The Stairs interview prolly next week. We all love hip-hop podcasts.

*No, really. For some reason the females have been slacking on me recently. Ladies please step your game up, thanks.



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.
