While we’ve seen just about every 2Pac verse recycled into a Bruce Hornsby sampled remix, here’s a pair of newly uncovered dis tracks from the slain rapper. Pac goes hard at Biggie, Nas, Wendy Williams, De La Soul (!), Dr. Dre on “Watch Ya Mouth”, and shots are fired with DPG at Biggie, Mobb Deep, [cont.]
To celebrate the upcoming Company Flow reunion show happening July 16th, 2011 at Santos House, NYC, El Producto releases this lost remix of “End To End Burners” from 1998, for stream or download.
I had the honor of spinning with A-Trak this past weekend at my regular residency, XS Las Vegas. I thought it might be a good idea to dig up this unreleased joint A-Trak did for HipHopSite.Com with his old group, Obscure Disorder, way back in 1997. We had planned to release some kind of mix [cont.]
LISTEN: Keith Murray & Canibus are The Undergods – “Undergods Roll” (Prod. Jake One) Keith Murray & Canibus are The Undergods – “Undergods Roll” (Prod. Jake One)
FSD delivers this unreleased Common gem, most likely from the BE recording sessions, as references are made to Bush and the WMD’s. LISTEN: Common – “Follow Me” (prod. Kanye West)
Detroit emcee drops a video for the album cut off 2010′s Brown Study. Download link for the track is below.
This mix was done for Dilated Peoples 20/20 LP by The Inhumanz, an old DJ/remix collective made up of Dave Fogg, Warren Peace, DJ Pizzo, DJ Destroyer, and Chris Myrikel. This was well into Dilated’s career, so the aim for this mix was to look back at their career up through 2006 – there’s about [cont.]
The story behind this is that we were hosting MF Doom’s website at the time, and had a close relationship with Doom. Sometime in 2006, Doom had a series of projects dropping all at once, which included the King Geedorah album, some Special Herbs instrumental projects, and a live album, if memory serves correctly. Under [cont.]
Here’s a classic freestyle ‘Tay did for Peter Rosenberg’s Real Late show, re-released in honor of today’s announcement that both Phonte and 9th Wonder will join Rosenberg for a live interview at Noisemakers on April 6th. Little Brother reunion incoming? LISTEN: Phonte – “Real Late” (prod. Khrysis) Phonte – “Real Late” (prod. Khrysis)
The story behind this release was that it was originally a “fake leak” of the People Under The Stairs’ 2006 album Stepfather. Weeks before the release of Stepfather, P.U.T.S. deliberately leaked this parody record under the guise of “Stepfather Advance” on sites like Limewire to discourage illegal downloading. Yeah, that worked pretty well. The end [cont.]
Speaking of Kanye, something that didn’t make the final cut of MBDTF was DJ Premier’s contribution, a beat called “JJ (Jermaine Jackson)”, as unearthed by G over at DJ Premier Blog. He explains that Bun B also turned it down, but another beat that ‘Ye turned down will go to Freddie Foxxx for The Kolexion. [cont.]
This week via his radio show, DJ Premier released two tracks that never made the cut. The first is a Madonna remix of the track “Don’t Tell Me”, that was turned down, hence the multiple drops over it in the audio clip below. The other is a Hot 97 Radio promo from Jeru The Damaja [cont.]
Here’s an apparent leftover from the MBDTF sessions – must be, the devil gets a shoutout. Old school props to first person to name the drum break….. LISTEN: Kanye West – “Eyes Closed” Via: EE
This rare freestyle moment from late 90′s features The Pharcyde on The Baka Boyz. First person that can correctly name the instrumental gets old school props….. LISTEN: Pharcyde – “Baka Boyz Freestyle” Pharcyde – “Baka Boyz Freestyle” (MP3)
It’s a little strange that Jay-Z has never collaborated with Pete Rock, isn’t it? At least not legally. There was ONE instance where the two collaborated, and that was for Pete’s Future Flavors radio show that found Jigga rhyming over a track from the Chocolate Boy Wonder, around the release of In My Lifetime. Billboard [cont.]
Over the weekend, we brought you Mobb Deep’s demo tape for The Infamous. Another one that Stretch played on the WKCR reunion show last week that has been nearly impossible to find without drops or tags over it is the demo version of Nas’ “It Ain’t Hard To Tell”. But we’ve been archiving this shit [cont.]
Another one from HipHopSite’s massive cassette deck archive, as promised last week. Here, Black Thought, Malik B, Dice Raw, and Rahzel appear on the Stretch Armstrong show in early 1995. Do you want more?!?!!? The Roots On Stretch Armstrong 3-13-95 (MP3)
1995 was the year and Big L and Jigga dropped this freestyle on the famous Stretch and Bobbito Show. Check out this classic freestyle. Big L & Jay-Z – Freestyle On Stretch and Bobbito Show (02-23-95)(MP3)
Here’s a treat from the HHS cassette archives, The Roots appearing on WNYU on March 3rd, 1995. This is an hour long live set, featuring Sadat X. This one’s been floating around for years on various bootlegs, etc. Here it is for your enjoyment. More to come….. The Roots – “Live on WNYU (03.12.95)” (MP3)
Wow, what a shame…. All those delays for Ski Beatz long awaited 24 Hour Karate School, and in the end, none of the previously released Mos Def collaborations made the final cut. Blame industry rule #4080. Do Ski a favor and buy the album and then tack on those deleted Mos Def cuts to your [cont.]
