MIXTAPE 115 – DO GOOD THINGS


MIXTAPE 121 – DO GOOD THINGS

Here’s Johnny? This is sort of a weird story and I’m not sure if it makes any sense the way I’m telling it, but yeah. This happened, and is still happening.

Tracklist

Fusion Unltd – The Sun feat Little Brother, Nickelus F, Hall of Fame, and Skillz. A producer that is sort of new to me. Lyrics ain’t bad either – “When I write I’m enlightening myself”? That’s sort of profound. myspace.com/fusionunltdfup

H.O.P.E – Can’t Knock the Hustle II feat Raquel Rodriguez. The vocals are kinda on the edge of contributing and taking away from the cut, but overall I dig. myspace.com/f2dhope.

Caltroit – Goatit feat Elzhi and Bishop Lamont. Off that recent Black Milk mixtape. This dude is sort of dope on the production. And come on, “raise your hands and see stars like King Hippo”? I hope I’m not the only one here who caught that. myspace.com/blackmk.

Jim Jones, Noe, and Tom Gist – Christmas Eve. Aside from dude feeling the need to do adlibs at the end of every bar, this is sort of a great song. myspace.com/jimjones

Rhymefest – Breakadawn feat Daniel Merriweather and alpha. I’ve dropped one cut from this tape before, but this is seriously a genius project. Don’t miss the skits. myspace.com/rhymefest.

Wurd Munchaz – Shakespeare. This is actually one of my favorite groups. If you don’t get the reference, I don’t know. You don’t spend enough time on the internet. myspace.com/wurdmunchaz

Okay, here:

original: marriedtothesea
I mean, come on. A rap song based on an internet joke? What’s next?

Cassius Clay – I Am The Greatest. Yes, as in Muhammad Ali. I checked the latest Shaun Boothe Unauthorized Biography joint (you heard the Bob Marley joint here last episode), and he referenced Ali’s recording career. Apparently people have referred to his stuff as some of the first battle raps – and really, listening to this, I can’t disagree.

John Robinson – Don King. Shouts to JR for linking this one up – been a minute since we’ve had some of his material on the show. If we spin Ali, it’s only fair to spin something about Don King, right? Info about his latest project here: myspace.com/thejohnrobinsonproject.

The Thunderclaps – Judgement Day (short preview edit). Shouts to Charlee for hooking me up with this joint forever ago. I have the long edit, but for some reason I dig the quick pace of this one. myspace.com/thunderclapsmusic.

instros:
intro:
Black Milk – Purple Track 3
outros:
Illa J – DFTF
RJD2 – Unlimited
Scarface – In Cold Blood

So yeah. Go out and do something nice for one of your friends, or for somebody you don’t know.

MIXTAPE EPISODE 35


MIXTAPE EPISODE 35

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