No Room Service Just Snacks and Shit

I know, I know, I'm lagging on mixes. Well I promise to have a few new ones up this week. It's just been busy in reality so the interweb has had to play second fiddle. Anyways, if you're bored in your cubicle or just at home playing xbox in your boxers check out this blog, its been amusing me for the past week straight.

Kid Cudi - Day N Nite video

Directed by So Me, the creative force behind Ed Banger Records as well as the critically acclaimed Kanye West/Hype Williams "Good Life" Video. I know every hipster and neon negro is going to tell me this video is mad old and already reposted on other cooler blogs several times tighter then their pants are but hold on...I'm getting old.. I can't keep up. Either way it's a straight forward concept used very effectively without being overly polished.

Struggle Rap

Hello, this is a new mix entitled, 'Struggle Rap'. It could inspire you, it could make you real blue, it could make you think. I've been working on it for a couple months. Just nit-picking @ it w/ a fork. I bet it has a bunch of tracks you already have & know. Some of the tracks might seem corny; but this one is all about placement, order, & restraint. The content speaks for itself. Stay grand...

Do not ring the bell, there is nobody home...a formal intro

Where to begin. Do we start with the fact that he spent all of the money from Dr.Octagon in one week on a hotel room with a rotating roster of prostitutes, thus creating the album Sex Styles? That he was a porno star? That the song Bow To The Master is a direct indictment of RZA and Mental Side Effects is a direct indictment of Andre 3000? According to the man himself he only drinks seltzer and brand x corn flakes because mad niggas come and eat your food on some freeloader shit. Oh you're hungry? Sorry, I only have seltzer and corn flakes, better go to the store man (a snippet from this interview). From the man who invented (literally) "underground rap" (he calls it just naturally being street. Back then everyone was on some different shit. Now theres just too many fish in the pond) here is approximatley one song from each of the albums he has been involved in (I didn't put anything on here from The Cenobites and I don't have The Big Willie Smith EP). I am missing some stuff, (on keith mix 1 I added two songs from Dr.Dooom, the album that comes after Dr. Octagon where he kills Doc Octo in the intro) but this is a pretty good start. The song Bow To The Master was the first part of Keiths paranoid anti-RZA jumpoff. Part two was an entire Album titled the Analog Brothers with none other than Ice - T. The songs from the Personal Album (every copy of the cd was hand autographed by Keith) are all slow love songs. We can be here forever. Without further yammerings, heres the best to ever do it.

Juvenile Hell

After the Andreis Kiji mash up post of the old Peer Pressure video, I wanted to add this as a comment but Kiji has been putting in work. The first album from the Ballerina and the Wankster, pretty young blood but pretty banging. H.N.I.C for life.

Funny Song of the Week 2

Black Moon Donald Byrd

There are time's when a sample is used so well and seamlessly that you can't imagine the sample used in any other way...that perfect way to create something new while honor what came before it. Donald Byrds,"Wind Parade"/Beatminers 1993

Desert Dessert

Hello, this is my inaugural introduction around these parts. I made this mix entitled 'Desert Dessert'. I started my early days making cassette tapes for friends in middle school. Gaining local notoriety for my A side: Wu-Tang & B side: No Limit mix tapes. This was back when everyone my age was listening to Mase & things of that nature. I would gather these albums (most with parental advisory) from my 2 older brothers or neighbors. Most of my friends had never heard of music like this. I had a double cassette tape deck stereo in my room my dad gave me. The pause button was broken, but during dubbing I would press the pause & it would make this abstract record scratch noise. I would do that effect in between songs. That was my shtick. Anyhow, hope you dig this selection...


Peer Pressure

Thanks Andreis.
