Get you floorwork together and go for your's kid, and just maybe you will walk away with that 1500 dollars....You can catch me and " Mr. Funk What Ya Heard " , wrecking the breaks and causing much damage..... ( YOU UNDERSTAND ME )...
Big shout out to War Party Z's for making it happen...YEE-YEE..
I have written about Brooklyn's infamous " Lo - Life's " several times on this blog, but after stumbling across "Shillz Da Realz's" site, I had to venture into " Lo - Life " territory again...
" Shillz " is one of the original founders of this world renown boosting outfit...Check out his spot for interesting crime stories, fashion, Hip Hop, and all types of funny shenanigans...
B.K. Stand the fuck up !!!!!!!
* Pic of " Shillz " backday, rocking a ill teddy bear lo - sweater....
Peep out his blog if you know what time it is....

E.M.C.'s " Punchline " just released a joint entitled, " Two For One " that should make your ears perk up a little bit...Damn..This sample sounds mad familiar to me...Hmmmm, reminds me of some shit that Preemo flipped before...

Time for you to check in.......
That dude, " Eli Escobar " has a blog that you should check out when you get the chance...A gang of mixes, edits, remixes, downloads, and all types of freshness can be found at his spot...

Don Lett's is the European version of " Fab 5 Freddy "...(That might not be the most accurate comparison, but I think you get the picture)....As a cultural ambassador, " Don " has brought together more people than many so - called government's...
He is credited as being one of the first D.J.'s in Europe to meld reggae and punk rock music into his sets, which influenced the " Clash " and numerous bands of that era, and beyond...
Don directed " Musical Youth's " first video ( Pass The Dutchie ), " Dance Hall Queen ", and his movie " Westway To The World ", won a grammy in 2003..
There are plenty of accolades that I have not mentioned...I guess you will have to pick up the book ( like I did ) to get the full run down.....
Or you can check out this in depth interview with him courtesy of 3 A.M Magazine.....

You know what to do trooper...

M.C. Ren is one of the King's Of The West.....Period....Dudes talk about Snoop, Crooked I, etc...But the Ruthless Villain doesn't get enough shine when this regional king talk start's poppin up....
Here are a couple lines that should refresh your memory..
" I hit a nigga off in the head with a chair / the reason for that, the motherfucker he was standing there "...( M.C Ren - Final Frontier )...
" Anytime that the 9 wanna leave, I got a 38 hidden up the sleeve / And it's ready to go to war, cause that's what it's here for, I shoot down a million nigga's and shoot one more ".....( M.C.Ren - Appetite For Destruction )...
" They want a nigga dead or alive / cause I don't talk jive, I try to survive "...( M.C. Ren - Mayday On The Frontline )...
I could truly go on forever ( off the top of my head ) but I think you get the picture...Strange thing is, after Ren put out the " Kiss My Black Ass E.P. " I stopped checking for him a little bit...I liked that E.P., but his follow up record ( Shock Of The Hour ) switched up the production dramatically.
Regardless, their is not many dudes that brought that hardcore shit like Ren...You actually felt the tension soon as he grabbed the mic back then....Salute to you Ren, for making me write better rhymes....
Check out this extensive interview " Dubb CNN " conducted with Ren awhile back.....POW,POW,
And just to keep it funky, here are a couple videos to get hype to...C.P.O. featuring Ren- Ballad Of A Menace.
Eazy And Ren dissing Dr. Dre.......HAHAHAHAHAH
One of the few songs I liked on Shock Of The Hour, " All Bullshit To The Side "....

Buckshot is spitting the truth on this clip...Yeah I had a good time there last year and all that, but a couple of things need some fine tuning ....
How could you have " Bambaataa " on the small stage ?....How could you have " Spankrock " hop on stage to do his thing right after Bam's performance ?...
How can you have a concert called " Rock The Bells " without L.L ?....
Peep Buck GOING IN....
Stretch's " Konstant Kontact " blog, was one of the main inspirations for starting my own spot...The sheer amount of heavy artillery he was dropping was ridiculous..
His input into that blog has slowed down dramatically...Why ?...Who knows...I'm quite sure he has a lot on his plate, maybe he doesn't have the time for this blog game anymore.....
Regardless, check out this interview " D.J. Eli " conducted with Stretch...
Two thumbs up...

I'm not one of those cats that has a grip of memory disk full of different drums, melodies, etc....When I make a beat everything is straight from scratch...The reason behind this being, I want to have a open mind when I approach my record collection and my sampler..
Some of my friends think my technique is crazy, but I just look at it as being adventurous...
So here we go again, another remix grenade tossed right in the middle of cyberspace...BOOM....No Midi, No keyboards, No nonsense....
" Rare Species " - Mobb Deep.....

Around 2003-2004 I stopped checking for the D.M.C. D.J. Battles..It seemed like after the "P- Trix", "A- Trak",and "D.J. Craze" era, cat's couldn't take it to another level...
Last night I decided to see what's up with the up and comers on the D.M.C. set....Just like I suspected, sloppy juggles, shaky transitions, and way too much Drum and Bass influence....Is this a rave or a motherfucking D.J. battle ?....
One of the D.J.'s that caught my attention though was,"D.J. Slyce"..Remember him ?...He stopped battling in 1999, but decided to step back in the ring in the 21st century...
After a 10 year hiatus, did this beat juggling monster from New Jersey have the right stuff to take the crown ? Nah, but second place isn't half bad.......
Peep this 2008 clip..
My homeboy "Monzrock" , just sent me this new 2009 heat rocket (Suddenly, produced by E.C)....
I have been building with this cat for a number of years, and everytime we meet up I instantly notice the progression of his skills...
Keep it on the rise famz....
YOU BETTER CHECK IN IF YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU....

Now this is what I am talking about...." D.J. Anonymous " hits us off with a fresh mixtape that features a gang of what some people call, " Random Rap "....For some reason I never really adopted that term...I think it belittles the artist who probably did everything in their power to not sound like some random, run of the mill type dudes...
Any mix that rocks " T.D.S. Mob " is a keeper in my book....
Have a good weekend..

I recently ran into Willie while he was on tour with " Mr. Lif "...He was a real down to earth cat..After we cracked a couple jokes I asked him what type of sampler does he rock? ..Come to find out he uses the same sampler that I do ( MPC 1000 )...
And just like myself, he rhymes and makes his own beats...YEAH MAYNE.....
Anyway, if your not up on this cat I suggest you go cop some of his earlier work with the " Asamov " crew...Some of Florida's finest Hip Hop if you ask me...

Hip Hop heads have always been on the cutting edge of technology, but are we going too far in the opposite direction?...Maybe I am just a old fashioned vinyl lover...
This invention by Scott Hobbs at Dundee University, looks like it should come with a NASA space suit... George Jetson D.J. shit......
They didn't call him Nasty Nas for nothing homeboy...

Tuesday, July 14, 2009
Here is another mix to get your ears perked up..." Wax Weapons 22 " is a joint that features all remixes..I didn't include one of my favorite remixes of all time, ( Shut E'm Down Remix by Pete Rock ) but there is still enough heat on this to raise your blood pressure levels...

Monday, July 13, 2009
I remixed this joint before, " Grand Daddy I.U. " ( Slinging Bass )....It was descent enough by my own standards, but it had too many sequences ( 15 or so )...
Sometimes when you rock too many sequences, you end up all over the place, and your beat becomes one big sloppy mess ( Unless your name is the Bomb Squad )..
Grand Daddy I.U. is a criminally slept-on cat...Even though his albums were always a little uneven, he always dropped some incredible wordplay, ill syllable patterns, and heavily detailed street narratives....Salute...
If you have shitty computer speakers your not going to hear the low end action...Ghetto Blaster recommended HAHAHHA..
Peep the remix......
And while your at it, here is another Drasar Monumental remix torpedo... Vocals from , " Big Noyd " featuring Mobb Deep...
At this point the " Wax Weapons " series is close to turning 30....Damn, almost 30 off the top of the dome mixes done by your's truly..
When I made " WW 11 " eight months back, my goal was to pull out some of the grimiest beats in my record collection...No " Neo - Soul ", no party time, shake your money maker joints, no happy rap.(I don't have much of that in my crates anyway HAHAHAH)
I think my goal was accomplished...Listen carefully to these blends...Instead of riding the 4 bar blend motif, I decided to let the mixes build to the point of hypnosis...After a couple minutes of checking in, you might just find yourself under some type of ROUGHNECK SPELL...There is one needle skip ( Happens with vinyl sometimes homeboy )...
I dedicate this to all you hardcore beat rockers out there...Turn the volume way past ten and prepare for collision......BLAMZZZ
D.J. Prestige is back with some more funk burners for all you cyber beat heads out there...Please do not sleep !!!!!!!
Here is the playlist...POW..

Clean that crust out of your eyes, rinse up a little bit, and throw on that Old Spice cologne...It's time to start another week famz..
While your at it, swoop up this new Mic Geronimo E.P. ( Scars And Stripes ) and throw it in your rotation...
I was suprised to hear this because I haven't heard anything from " MG " in a minute...Good to hear him putting it down in the 21st century...Not a bad effort, but not a knock em out the park, homerun hitter effort either....Regardless, it's worth a listen...
Friday, July 10, 2009
Kankick used to be in the " Lootpack " until he bounced to form the " Funkfarm ", which included D.J. Babu, etc...Over the years he has released a gang of top notch blunted beats...

I personally believe " U - Stream " is going to pop off in a major way in upcoming months...Remember when streaming videos was just a big waste of time because of the glitch factor ?.....Well things have changed for the better...
On this Beat Junkie Radio clip, Mr. Heavy Weight " Truly Odd " blesses us with some 45 action....
L.A. STAND THE FUCK UP...
Damn these " Do - Over " jams are really starting to pick up steam...With guest like " J Rocc ", " Mr. Choc ", " Kon And Amir ", etc it appears as if this is the place where the party people GET IT IN...
This live mix by " Nu - Mark " should help kick off your weekend properly....
Thursday, July 9, 2009
This is a message to all you beat freaks out there...Virtual Sounds Tech is having a sale on all of their M.P.C. 2500's...Instead of charging eighteen hundred ( normal price ), you can now cop one of these joints for just over a grand....
So quit sleeping and go for yours trooper...
GET IT IN.....
Crown City Rocker " Raashan Ahmad " dropped an album this year entitled , " Soul Power ".....Instead of rocking with a live band, " R " get's busy over sample chops from producers such as " Kas One ", " Woodstock ", " Headnotic ", " Ebo ", etc...
On this cut ( Mobstar Life ), producer " Woodstock " creates a very flavorful atmosphere....Summer time boogie shit....
Check in for yourself...
Wednesday, July 8, 2009
I have high hopes for their upcoming album ( Even though I wasn't feeling that Robot joint too much )...
Check for it when it drops if you know what's best for you.....And to my manz " Big Matt " in Chicago, get at me I lost your numbers....
Truth be told, Magic Johnson is my second favorite basketball player of all time ( Kobe Bryant is my # 1 pick ), but did you see him at the Michael Jackson tribute yesterday ?......Wow....
I couldn't believe what I heard come out of his mouth..This brother had enough nerve to say " One of my fondest memories of MJ is when we sat around and had a bucket of K.F.C. fried chicken together "..GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE FAMZ....
Are you crazy ?...The cameras are on you fool...The world is watching you, waiting eagerly for you to drop a jewel or two about this man's life...And all you can come up with is a lame ass chicken eating story...Shame on you fam..
The next thing you know, every media outlet is talking about this K.F.C. comment and straight clowning....( What a suprise )..
I'm suprised the curtains didn't close on Magic....I'm suprised he didn't get hit in the face with a flying egg before he walked off the stage....I'm suprised cat's are so brainwashed they didn't even feel Magic was out of pocket....
You gotta give it up for Al Sharpton though.....Damn...He tore down the house when he yelled out to Michael's kids, " Their is nothing strange about your daddy, but their is something strange about the way your daddy was treated "...
I got motherfucking goosebumps when I heard that shit....
It's time to let Michael rest ya'll....He gave us a lifetime of music, isn't that enough ?.....R.I.P.
Tuesday, July 7, 2009
" Modesty " recently hit me up with this joint featuring Queens New Yorker, " Nut- Rageous " ( The Real Hip Hop Show Mixtape ).
You know how " Modesty " get's it in....Doubles, blends, and a healthy dose of dirty Hip Hop.....Enjoy..
I want to thank the wonderful city of San Diego for blessing me with a fresh perspective for this summer...Palm trees, beaches, beautiful women, and a heavy amount of sunshine...It was so fuckin hot it felt like a brother was cooking in a microwave....
While I was there I ran into this cat , " Mane One " who has been holding it down on the decks since 93....He has spun at the " Mighty 4 " several times, and countless other B Boy battles...On his blog you can catch 30 minute mixes where he goes for broke.
This is his latest mix.....
1. born to be blue -jack bruce
2. bubble gum -9th creation
