Last week me and the Mrs. checked out Karriem Riggins, with special guest, Pete Rock at a spot called " Yoshi's " in " The Town "...... A.K.A. Oakland the " City of Dope " ......HAHAHAH..
Karriem is no slouch on the drums, I had no idea he was THAT dude on the sticks...Jazz drumming, Hip Hop style beats, broken beats, etc.....His vocabulary was extensive...
His backing band held it down without a fraction of a doubt..." Straight Ahead " jazz cats with a wicked sense of timing and improvisation...( Amazing )..
What can I say about motherfuckin Pete Rock ?....." Inspirational "....." Deep Concentration "....." Soulful " would have to be the perfect word to describe how he got down....He played an assortment of beats from his massive catalogue with a couple suprises for good measure...
One of the illest parts of the night is when Karriem played drums while Pete dropped numerous cuts on the fly...I didn't hear a single mistake during that whole entire segment ( even though it sounded like they were freestyling )...
All in all it was a dope event, with an appreciative crowd....Two thumbs up type shit...
Be on the lookout for upcoming releases from " Karriem and Madlib " ( Supreme Team )....
" Kaleidoscope " is a beat tape project that " Karriem " put out awhile back....You better CHECK IN...
Peep " K " in action with the Ray Hargrove Quintet while your at it fool.....

1... " Drasar " is a acronym for DANGEROUS / RHYMES / ASSASSINATE / SUCKERS / AT / RANDOM ..
Yeah I'm one of those cats that rhyme, make beats, spin records, and dabble in graff...I used to have some nasty footwork back in 1984 too HAHAHA!!!!!!!!
2...Marley Marl's first commercial release was, " Sucker D.J.'s " by Dimples D...( 1983 )..
3...One time " U.M.C. " member Hass - G, has been honing his production chops as of late..Crafting heaters for Ghostface ( Apollo Kids ), Inspector Deck ( City High ), and even 50 Cent ( Magic Stick )...So next time you spot a " Phantom Of The Beats " logo,keep in mind that the man behind it is your boy , " Hass "...
4...Since I am on the " U.M.C. " tip, it should also be noted that " N.Y. Oil " is " Kool Kim from the " U ".....I know that was a little too easy....Number 5 will be a doozy for all you Hip Hop factology dudes...
5...This isn't the first era that " Guru " hooked up with a cat named " Solar ".....French M.C. " Solaar " collaborated with " Guru " on the Jazzmatazz project ( The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly )....I don't know what the fuck he is saying, but he sounds on point to me...
6...Rebel X.D. is the fastest rapper in the world according to the Guiness Book Of World Records ( 2009 )...Twista, Daddy Freddy and several others have held the crown in the past, but this cat " X.D. " is styling on em ( HAHA ).....Check in for yourself all you slow poke rap kids out there...
7...Your boy Son Doobie also dabbles in the porno game. Can't say that I have ever watched one of his jump off's but, " FunkDoobiest " has a new album that you should cop ( Golden B Boys )...
8...D.J. Premier's sidekick on Series Radio/ XM ", King Of Chill " is no joke on the production side of things..His resume is very impressive..." K.C. " blessed M.C. Lyte with " Cha, Cha, Cha ", " Paper Thin " etc..Countless joints for " Alliance ", " Audio 2 ",
and " Positive K " as well...Salute...
9...Vanilla Ice's debut album " To The Extreme ", has sold more than " Rakim's ", " Kool G. Rap's ", and " Big Daddy Kane's " first albums combined....With over 7 million units sold, " Vanilla Ice " has one of the biggest selling Hip Hop ( if you can call it that ) records of all time........WHAT A FUCKING SHAME !!!!!!!!!!!
10...James Brown died on Dec 25th, Aaliyah on August 25th, Left Eye on April 25th, and Michael Jackson on June 25th.....I was kinda flipping when I first found out about this one....Who knows if there is any real numerology science behind it, interesting nevertheless....R.I.P.
Straight from France comes this mixtape by " D.J. Calhoun and Frankie Numi " ( Take A Trip Inside My Thoughts )...As far as selections go, this has to be one of my top five favorite mixes of 2009....
Under the radar, Hardcore Hip Hop is the motif for this joint...I truly could not believe what the fuck I was hearing from beginning to end..
Quit wasting time and scoop this up PRONTO...
Hip Hop Battlefield put's the official stamp of approval on this.........Peace to " HHCN "....

You already know who " Kon And Amir " are, so there is no reason to go into a long introduction explaining how this Boston duo get down...
Quality music selection is their forte, and this live mix at the " Do Over " is no exception..I wish I was there on the dancefloor when this went down...Damn...
Weekend heatery no doubt...

This was my birthday week so a brother has been out of the office for a couple days, but I'm back and I will hit you guys off with a crazy amount of shit for the remainder of the week...
First things first...Rest In Peace to Michael Jackson for real....I know this is a hardcore Hip Hop blog and all that, but I was very saddened to hear the news of his untimely passing...What's even sadder than that, is the mainstream media's coverage of the man many call the " King Of Pop "...
Your talking about a cat that devoted everything to his craft...All I hear is real greasy talk about him by people that haven't really accomplished shit in their own life...Even though he was found innocent in court, America turned their back on Michael and came up with dumbell titles like " Wacko- Jacko " and all that bullshit...Crazy.....Remember when Kat Williams and Eddie Griffith used to go on long tirades about Michael and try to clown ?......Well I was one of the cats that never laughed at that type of shit....
What's so fuckin funny about clowning on another brother that helped raise your stupid asses...If I hear another cornball joke, I'm going to straight up look that bozo in the eye, and diss the fuck out of them....
Whatever happened to respect ?...Who has done more for race relations internationally than Michael ?...I remember when MTV wouldn't barely show a black face on their network, until Michael's record company hemmed them the fuck up....Michael practically built MTV......
It really comes down to motherfuckers not respecting a black man's music...You can't even believe the level of ignorance that I have been subjected to since he passed.....It's a damn shame that this brother couldn't have peace while he lived, but what's even worse, that even in death, he is still under heavy attack....
I could go on forever but I won't.....
Isaac Hayes, James Brown, and now Michael Jackson.....Things will never be the same....NEVER...It's going to take years for people to grasp the magnitude of losing someone like Michael....
So before you pop off with some lame jokes, think about what you are saying....Think about what YOUR contribution is to humanity....Think before you judge someone that you don't even know on a personal basis....Think about how Michael changed up this whole shit and rearranged what it means to be a artist....
Think about how America eats it's young, and how they discard what's left of you after they have milked everything that they can...Think about his family. who are probably in a state of shock like everyone else...
Think about his monumental musical contribution to the world....THINK......

For this mix I decided to try something a little different, so I headed over to " Mr. Funk What Ya Heard's " crib to get it poppin.But he has Serato and I never really fucked around with it like that ( My record collection is massive enough for me to cause much damage )..
What your about to hear is a off the top of the dome mix blessed by yours truly.I had a lot of fun with Serato, it's a lot different than what I thought it would be.It's just another tool that can be flipped well if you have your head screwed on straight..
If your a good d.j. with wax, you'll still be a good d.j with Serato...If your a wack ass, unseasoned d.j with wax, you'll still be a wack ass, unseasoned d,j. with Serato....
Who knows if I will ever pick one up...I still need more time on one to experiment and try a couple more things..
Good lookin " P " for allowing me to catch a little wreck at your casa..
Here is the playlist...Enjoy..
1..Termanology- " Baking Soda "
2..Large Pro- " Hardcore: Small Pro Remix "
3..Mobb Deep- " M.O.B. "
4..A.Z.- " Memphis Sessions "
5..Big Twinz- " Hit The Ground "
6..Vendetta Kings featuring Killa Sha, Planet Asia, Sha Stimuli, -" B.O.B.C. "

8..Billy Danze- " Savages "
9..F.T. " I'm Back "

Never heard of this cat " U Crime " but on his newest release " Don't Get Me Confused ", he teams up with Prodigy for some more of that angry rap...
Prodigy impresses with rude wordplay such as ...." Ain't no clean fights, nigger we dirty / you niggers want to donate blood than we thirsty "......Only " P " could pull off such foul, greasy talk....
You gotta give it to " Tame Onerz " for dropping music consistently over the years...Even though I wish the " Artifacts " would clique up again in the 21st century, " Tame " still manages to put out some heatery from time to time..
On his new album " Acid Tab Vocab " ( Best album title of the year hahahah )," T " drops introspective cuts like " Suede Adidas "
And the hilarious, " Anxiety Attacks "...

Canada's " D.J. Pump " is one of the most versatile D.J.'s out there..In his sets you will hear a wide range of music from different era's...
Many of you remember him from his routines at the D.M.C.'s..( Where he totally kills it )....
This mixtape that I am about to bless ya'll with, ( Steady Rockin ) is one of the best break mixes I have heard in a long time..Pump goes all out with a barrage of nonstop blends, cuts and well thought out composition...
Hip Hop Battlefield put's the official stamp of approval on this one.. DO NOT SLEEP!!!!!!!

They just don't make movie soundtracks like this anymore..In 1974, Herbie Hancock went for broke when he produced and composed the original score for the movie, " Death Wish "....From front to back " Herbie " managed to create some real live musical drama...Some of this shit is just plain sinister...
You might want to listen to this in the daytime...HAHA...
Here are a couple of my favorite joints...
" Party People "---DOWNLOAD
And the awkwardly titled, " Paint Her Mouth " ---DOWNLOAD
When I first met " Bron 4000 ", I knew from the gate he was on some other, other , other shit ( You get the picture )...He is truly one of the most creative, artistic cats that I have ever come across...
On the graff tip his style is very distinct and original , with a penchant for heavy detail, alongside striking, bold colors..." Bron " is also very well rounded, he can flip insane characters but his letter styles are no joke either....
Salute to you " B "...Keep up the good work ...YEEEEEEEEE...YEEEEE....... San Francisco stand up!!!!!!
BRON 4000 BLOG....
( Fooders, Mark, what up )..

45 King easily makes my top ten list of favorite producers..Even though he is a household name in the Hip Hop production community, he has never sold out, or played himself for fame or wealth...
When it comes to creative sampling, he was so far ahead of his time...If you go back and check his beats from the late 80's you would realize just how many styles, techniques, and samples that cats bit from him..
And to this day " 45 " still get's it in without question..SALUTE
While your at it, swoop up this batch of beats by the motherfuckin king...
And just to keep this post 100, here is a clip of " 45 " getting biz on the 45's...YA DIGGG

We have lost another Hip Hop king people..." IZ The Wiz " has to be one of the most prolific writers in the history of graff in New York City....Period...
He was well known for his throw - up's, but in the late 70's he started rocking top to bottoms, burners, and scenery whole cars..It was during this period that he achieved all - city king status..
His work has been displayed in galleries and museums all over the world...Iz also appeared in " Style Wars " and " Wild Style "...
The homie " Dan Boogie " just hit me off with this off the top of the dome break mix...No rehearsals, no editing tricks, just impromptu blends with a funk mode twist...
I'm not even sure if he is aware that I am posting this ( How's that for exclusive )...Don't get mad at me Dan, your mix needs to be heard homeboy HAHAHA...
Anyway, turn the volume to ten, and let the beats rock...Peace..

This was so funny that I just had to post it up..Peace to TCO..
Here is a few words from Necro regarding his recent altercation in Perth HaHaHa...
IM SORRY TO ALL MY PERTH FANS FOR MISSING THE SHOW
YOU SHOULD KNOW I GOT MAD LOVE FOR YOU AND WOULD NEVER INTENTIONALLY NOT SHOW UP TO A GIG
I HAD NO IDEA WHEN I GOT INTO THAT FIGHT WITH THAT BITCH ASS MOTHERFUCKER, THAT HE WOULD SNITCH ON ME AND CALL POLICE, LEADING TO MY ARREST
I FULLY WOKE UP THAT MORNING WITH INTENTIONS TO DESTROY PERTH LIVE, BUT THINGS HAPPENED THAT I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT
I BASICALLY FUCKED UP AND LET SOMEONE PISS ME OFF
I DID IT TO MYSELF BECAUSE IM NOT HAVING IT FROM ANYONE SO MUCH, IM SO HOOD, IM TOO HOOD FOR MY OWN GOOD, I LET SHIT CLOUD MY JUDGEMENT, AND WHEN THE GUY DISRESPECTED ME AND ACTED LIKE HE WAS HARD I FLIPPED OUT
LEADING ME TO BREAK HIS JAW AND SON HIM IN HIS OWN HOOD
AINT NUTTING NEW
DUDE ACTS TOUGH, THEN WE REGULATE AND THEY RUN AWAY, GRAB WEAPONS, CALL THEIR FRIENDS, THEY CANT SQUARE UP WITH ME ONE ON ONE
IF YOU ARE GONNA ACT HARD BE ABLE TO BACK IT UP OR BE GULLY ENOUGH TO FIGHT A FAIR ONE LIKE A MAN
AND DO NOT SNITCH EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FUCK THE POLICE, NEVER CALL COPS OVER A BRAWL, THATS GAY
AND THATS WHAT THEY DID
THEY CALLED THE POLICE AND HAD ME ARRESTED
LOOK, I WAS HAVING A BAD DAY
MY EARS WERE RINGING FROM THE FLIGHT, SOMETHING ABOUT PERTH HAD MY EARS ALL FUCKED UP WHEN I GOT OFF THE PLANE
THE MASSAGE COMPANY COULDNT SEND ME A HO, THEY SAID THEY HAD ALL APPOINTMENTS FILLED
THEN WHEN I WENT TO GET A SMOOTHIE, THE BITCH WOULDNT MAKE IT WITHOUT YOGURT
I ASKED THE WHORE FOR A SMOOTHIE WITH JUST FRUIT AND ICE, NO ICECREAM OR EXTRA CRAP
ME AND HYDE ONLY EAT HEALTHY, WE ARE ON SOME BOXING SHIT
AND SHE WOULDNT BUDGE, SO THAT HAD ME BURNT
THEN I ORDERED AN OMELETTE WITH TOMATOE AND ONIONS
THIS DUMB BITCH PUT DRIED TOMATOES IN MY EGGS
THAT SWEET SHIT
I DONT LIKE IT
IT FUCKED UP MY MEAL
I WANTED FRESH TOMATOES
SO I WASNT HAVING A GREAT MORNING
THATS WHEN WE DECIDED TO WALK BACK TO THE HOTEL AND PASSED THIS DOOSHBAG SITTING DOWN DRINKING COFFEE TRYING TO GRILL MOTHERFUCKERS
HE THOUGHT HE WAS THE GANGSTER OF THIS AREA OR SOMETHING AND HE WAS GONNA SON ME
WELL HE FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY THAT I DONT GET SONNED
LONG STORY SHORT, HE GOT DUFFED MORE TIMES IN 10 SECONDS THAN HE COULD COUNT ONCE HE STEPPED UP, THATS WHEN I OFFERED HIM TO STOP
LIKE, DO YOU WANNA TAP OUT MOTHERFUCKER????
I COULD HAVE MURDERED HIM, BUT I WASNT TRYING TO GO THERE
THATS WHEN HIS PUSSY FRIENDS WITH WEAPONS JUMPED IN, SO HYDE JUMPED IN AND CRACKED ONE OF THEM
ONE OF THE DUDES GRABBED AN OLD MAN'S CANE AND SWUNG IT AT ME
NOW I GOT NO PROBLEM FIGHTING PEOPLE WITH WEAPONS, SO I DONT BACK DOWN, SO THE SHIT BROKE ON MY ARM, AND WHEN I WENT TO ATTACK HE RAN LIKE A FAG
SAME WAY THE CRACKHEADS IN GREECE RAN
WHY DO PEOPLE RUN AWAY????
STAND STILL AND SQAURE UP HOMIE!!!!!!!
ANYWAY, THE SHIT HAD A POINTY END AND HE WAS TRYING TO STAB ME WITH IT BUT WAS TOO PUSSY TO GET TOO CLOSE FOR FEAR I WOULD SNUFF HIM
SAME FOR THE FIRST GUY, HE NOW HAD A SHARP CANE STICK TOO
AND WE HAD NO WEAPONS, AND MAYBE THEY CAUGHT ME ONCE OR TWICE WITH THEIR STICKS, BUT DIDNT DO MAJOR DAMAGE
I SEEMED TO HAVE HURT MY KNEE SOMEHOW
THE FILMED CAMERA SHOWS ME SMASHING INTO A TABLE AND BARRICADE WHILE I CHASED THE FIRST MORON WHO STARTED BEEF BUT RAN
ANYWAY, WHILE THIS WAS HAPPENING ALL THEIR HOMIES STARTED GATHERING UP WONDERING WHAT WAS HAPPENING, LIKE 10 OF THEM
AND THEY ALL DIDNT DO SHIT, WHILE I STOOD THERE READY FOR ACTION
WE THEN WENT TO OUR HOTELS, THINKING IT IS WHAT IT IS, A FIGHT WHERE THEY TOOK A LOSS
THEY CALLED THE COPS, THE RAT SNITCH MOTHERFUCKERS
SO COPS BANGED DOWN OUR HOTEL ROOM DOOR, AND ARRESTED ME AND HYDE
THEY CLAIMED THAT THE CAMERA SHOWED ME SETTING SHIT OFF AND THAT I WAS THE AGGRESSOR
AND DUDE WASNT GETTING IN ANY SHOTS ON ME
THE COPS HAD IT IN FOR US
LIKE THEY WANTED TO SEE US GET LOCKED UP
THEY DIDNT CARE THAT THIS FUCKHEAD STARTED WITH ME FOR NO REASON VERBALLY
THEY ARE ON SOME REAL SOFT MORMON TYPE SHIT OUT THERE IT SEEMS
CUZ THIS SHIT MADE THE FUCKING NEWS, HEADLINE NEWS ON TV AND PAPERS AND ONLINE ALL OVER THE WORLD
THE COPS WERE GASSING ME UP TELLING ME I DIDNT NEED A LAYWER AND THAT LEGAL AIDS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN AUSTRALIA
AND THEY HAD ME AND HYDE WEAR PRISON SUITS, WHILE EVERYONE ELSE IN PERTH WATCH HOUSE WAS WEARING THEIR CLOTHES
LIKE THEY WERE TRYING TO PREPARE US FOR A LONG STAY
THE VIBE WAS REAL SHADY, DOWN TO THE LITTLE BOX THEY TRANSFERRED US IN BARELY FIT FOR A DOG
I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA BE SCREWED AND DO REAL TIME OVER THIS, ON SOME IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER SHIT
BUT THIS WAS A LESSON THAT I NEED TO FALL BACK AND CANT REGULATE EVERY JERK OFF THAT GETS OUT OF LINE
ME AND HYDE HAVE A HABIT OF DOING THAT, CUZ PEOPLE ARE ANNOYING
BUT THEIR IS NO HONOR THESE DAYS, AND THE SAME GUY THAT WILL START WITH YOU WILL CALL POLICE ONCE YOU FUCK HIM UP
IT HAPPENED WITH THE LITTLE BASTERDS ON SOUNDS OF THE UNDERGROUND, AND ITS HAPPENING EVERYDAY IN THE SYSTEM
SO I GOT MORE TO LOSE, THATS WHY I FEEL BAD I GOT SUCKED INTO THIS
BUT ITS BEEN A WHILE SINCE SOMEONE ACTUALLY PRESSED CHARGES ON ME FOR STREET SHIT
WHEN I FOUGHT THE NEIGHBORHOOD GROCERY STORE WHEN I WAS LIKE 18, FOR NOT SELLING ME A ST IDE'S BEER, AND ENDED UP HAVING THEM PUT AN ORDER OF PROTECTION AGAINST ME, I FORGOT HOW IT IS TO DEAL WITH PRESSED CHARGES
I COULD HAVE RUINED ALOT OF OPPORTUNITIES CUZ OF THIS
MY NEW MOVIE ROLE, MY NEW DISTRO DEAL, ROCK THE BELLS, ECT.
SO I WANT ALL MY PERTH FANS TO KNOW THAT I FEEL REAL BAD ABOUT WHAT WENT DOWN
ALTHOUGH IM NECRO THE THUG RAPPER FROM BROOKLYN, IM ALSO A CEO THAT RUNS PLR FOR 10 YEARS
LIKE JAY Z SAID, FRIVELOUS BEEF, IM LOOKING PAST THAT
ME AND HYDE ALWAYS WANNA BREAK SOMEONE'S FACE, EVERYWHERE WE GO, PEOPLE GET OUT OF LINE, MOST PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND THE STREETS AND THE CONSEQUENCES THAT COME WITH TALKING SHIT TO SOMEONE FROM THE STREET
BUT THATS THE MAJORITY
WE ARE LAST OF A DYING BREED
ONLY VERY FEW GET DOWN LIKE WE DO
AND I AINT GOT NOTHING TO FUCKING PROVE
I LOST $10,000 BECAUSE OF THIS FROM THE SHOW MONEY, TO THE FINES AND LAYWER BILLS
BUT FUNNY ENOUGH, AND IT SHOCKED THE FUCK OUT OF ME, I GAINED ABOUT $10,000 IN PUBLICITY
TOTALLY UNPLANNED AND SURPRISED ME, BUT THIS WAS BIG NEWS IN PERTH
SO FROM OUT THE DARKNESS COMES THE LIGHT, AND THERE IS A LESSON TO BE LEARNED FROM ALL SITUATIONS, AND I HAVE LEARNED ONE FROM THIS
ME AND HYDE HAVE BEEN BOXING HEAVILY THE LAST 6 MONTHS, GETTING REALLY BRUTAL AND IN SHAPE, SO I GOT NO PROBLEM SHOOTING FIVE WITH ANYONE, BUT YOU DONT KNOW WHO IS A RAT, SO ID RATHER NOT FIND OUT
REGARDLESS, WE WILL ALWAYS HOLD SHIT THE FUCK DOWN IN ALL SITUATIONS MOVING FORWARD
YOU DONT WANT IT!!!!
ON ANOTHER NOTE I WAS TALKING WITH MY MOTHER, TELLING HER HOW I WANTED TO TAKE HER OUT FOR A SECOND MOTHER'S DAY, SINCE I GOT MY FREEDOM, I WANTED TO CELEBRATE WITH HER, AND DO SOMETHING NICE FOR HER
AND I TOLD HER HOW I ALMOST FUCKED UP MY FIRST MOVIE ROLE
AND SHE ASKED ME, WHATS THE NAME OF THE CHARACTER, AND I TOLD HER, HIS NAME IS BOBBY
SHE SAID "BOBBY????" EXCITED AND SURPRISED PLEASANTLY
AND SHE LOOKED UP TO THE HEAVEN AND SAID BOBI!!!!
THAT WAS MY GRANDMOTHER'S NAME
THATS WHAT WE CALLED HER, BOBI
AND SHE WAS GANGSTA
SHE LIVED IN THE PROJECTS WITH US, AND PLAYED BINGO AND WATCHED WRESTLING, AND SHE IS UNCLE HOWIE'S MOTHER
SHE SPAWNED THE CLASSIC HOWIE
I MENTIONED HER IN REFLECTION OF CHILDREN PART 2 FROM STREET VILLAINS PART 2
SO ITS A COOL COINCIDENCE THAT MY FIRST MOVIE ROLE CHARACTER IS THE SAME NAME AS HER
MY MOTHER SAID BOBI IS WATCHING DOWN ON ME, AND MADE SURE I WAS ALLRIGHT
JUST WANTED TO SHARE THAT
PS. I ALSO HAD TO PUNCH SOME DUDE IN THE FACE IN THE GOLD COAST IN THE STREET BY SURFER'S PARADISE AVENUE FOR BEING A DRUNKERD
HE FLEXED ON ME AND I SNUFFED HIM WITH THE LEFT JAB
THEN HE ALSO RAN AWAY LIKE A BITCH ONCE I SQUARED UP
ALL GOOD SCENES FOR THE EVENTUAL NECRO LIFE STORY MOVIE
ONCE AGAIN, SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY PERTH FANS, AND IM SORRY I FUCKED UP AND DIDNT MAKE THE SHOW CUZ OF THIS
I WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK NEXT TIME AND WILL AVOID ANYTHING FRIVELOUS
BUT IN THIS RAP GAME/STREET GAME, WHO KNOWS, I CANT PROMISE ANYTHING!!

I have been checking a lot of beat tapes lately...Everything from old " Dilla " beat tapes, to up and coming cats dropping these type of joints...
Recently I came across a " Bruce Li " beat tape ( Hindu Kush ) that was pretty filthy...A lot of kung fu samples ( obvious RZA influence ), dirty drums, and all types of odd arrangements...What made me appreciate this project even more, is the fact that he made all of this with a S.P. 303...( I'm a lo- fi type of guy, NO HOMO )..
Check in for yourself duke..

Your boy " Kev " still has some 200 hundred dollar beats up for sale folks..You need to do the right thing and go cop some of that heat before his prices go back up...
I recently spotted this interview with him at Vinyl Meltdown...
YOU BETTER CHECK IN
Remember that cat " D.J. Nando " from the DMC battles awhile back ? Well he is dabbling in production as well these days.Head over to his blog for new mixes, exclusive beats, and all types of other flavor..
Make sure you tell him that dangerous kid from HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD sent you jack !!!!!!
Grand Master Dee ( The D.J. from Whodini if your a herb ) turns 47 today cousin...So it's only right that I post up some goodies from the crew..Also big shout out to my partner in grime, Shyeerallah who had a birthday yesterday ( I see you ninja )....
" Magic's Magic Wand ".......Peep Jalil rocking a white swami head wrap...HaHa
Here is a interview by Ceepeso....My favorite quote from Grand Master Dee, "When you respect the game, the game will respect you".....So simple, but very deep words right there...
And the timeless classic " One Love "....Happy Birthday brother..

I heard this same beat on " Showbiz And A.G's " latest album ( Experience )....A.G. sounded good on it, but Bill sounds crazy on this joint ( Savages )....I'm suprised I haven't seen this posted up everywhere in cyberspace...
Do yourself a favor and swoop this one up duke....CLACK,CLACK, SALUTE...
There is a rhyme that M.C. Ren flipped on the " Kiss My Black Ass " ( E.P. ), that always stood out to me....It goes a little something like this folks....
" Fuck all those niggas with live instruments on the stage / save that shit for parades..And while your at it why don't you dress like a clown / and draw yourself a permanent frown...Rappers back in the days didn't have band's in the blueprints / cause it wouldn't make sense......Niggas doing this should retire / niggas looking like Earth ,Wind and Fire..."
On the surface this rhyme might appear to be some simple minded shit to some, but in actuality " Ren " is dropping some heavy science here ( I will elaborate a little bit more in upcoming post HAHAHAH )...
And for the most part I agree with his theory...I would rather hear dusty samples being wrecked than hearing m.c's get loose over live instruments any day of the week..
But " The Roots", " El Michels Affair " and several other bands would get my vote if I was to travel in the "LIVE HIP HOP BAND " category....The United Kingdom's " Heliocentrics " are another band that deserve some credit....
Check out the song they did with " M.F. Doom and " Percee P " ( Distant Star )...
And while your at it peep the collabo they did with " Guilty Simpson " ( Before I Die ).....It has one of the illest intros I have heard in a long time...LISTEN UP....

B Sides Records in Berkeley California, will be closing it's doors at the end of the month..Record stores all across the country are calling it quits lately.....So if you want to add some fire power to your collection, take advantage of the liquidation sale that's poppin off right now..
Check out the online store here..
It's remix time again people...This week I decided to get a little dramatic with the production...
The original sample source is from a 1940's gangster soundtrack record ( which will remain nameless )...It was unbelievably difficult to tear apart all of these tiny bits of sound and put them back together again, but eventually I blacked out and got in my machete chop zone...HAHAHA..
One of the freshest cats from the west coast, " E - Rule " finesses the vocals ( One Rule )...Listen carefully to the lyrics because " E " straight up wrecks shit...Original wordplay, nasty flow, and unpredictable rhyme schemes indeed.........Enjoy...

Craig G is back with a dedication to all those fashionistas, who rock their pants so tight that you would think they were on some ballet shit..
" Skinny Jean Funeral " is bound to ignite extreme laughter from coast to coast..YOU BETTER CHECK IN..
I can't even front,I didn't know of the great Brazilian outfit ( Azymuth ) until " Madlib " recorded a album with their drummer Ivan Conti...
On a recent digging mission in Vancouver Canada, the homie Dave Jones put me up on some of their material..I was truly blown away by what I heard, and vowed to cop every piece of wax I could find that bore their name.
Azymuth is a three piece band from Rio De Janeiro and the other two members are Alex Malheiros ( Bass, guitars ), and Jose Roberto Bertrami ( Keyboards )... They formed in 1972 and continue to record and tour to this day...
With over 20 albums under their belt, it's hard to believe more people in the states are unaware of them..
Here are a couple of my favorite cuts from the 1975 album..If this doesn't help jump start your Monday, you might need to get your funk bone checked out cousin...Enjoy..

" Caca A Raposa "--DOWNLOAD
" Manha "--DOWNLOAD

Buc Fifty has the uncanny ability to lace his rhymes with plenty of violence, but somehow remain comedic at the same time...When some cats try to pull off the roughneck approach, they sound like they are REACHING a little too much...With Buc, it's sounds natural and true to life..
In 2005 he dropped the " Rethuglican " album ( Produced entirely by J Swift ) which had it's moments...Peep for yourself...
( Rethuglican ) DOWNLOAD

In 1992 the New Rochelle crew, " The Future Sound " put out a album entitled " The Whole Shabang " on Atlantic Records..This cut " Star Struck " was a diss record aimed at Brand Nubian ( They responded with Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down )...
" When The Ends Meet " - ( Life Of A Futuristic B Boy ) takes me back to a time when " Native Tongues " were really bubblin, " Das EFX's " style was being copied by everyone, and the L. A. riots had motherfuckers shook...
Even with Dame Dash as their manager, " FTS " only put out one album..Dame went on to managing " Jay Z " and the rest is history
folks...I wonder if there is any " FTS " lost tapes floating around ?

When it comes to that raw, gritty production steez, you would be hard - pressed to find a filthier outfit than the " Beat Minerz "..
While many producers have abandon their roots and hopped on to the next bandwagon,BM have consistently churned out dirty beats and kept their sample based foundation intact..Salute..
They also have a website that features mixes, upcoming projects, and all that good shit..So do yourself a favor and head over to their spot..And tell em that kid from Hip Hop Battlefield sent you JACK...

Phil comes from left field this time around and blesses us with a gang of rock breaks..When it comes to obsurity, he goes all out..Many of these joints are as rare as they come..
Good work Phil, keep em coming homeboy...And by the way, I told you the Lakers were going to smash up everybody..Kobe is King..
