Mami El Negro Esta Rabioso!

A classic by Wilfrido Vargas "El Africano" 'cept with interesting breakers. This classic merengue tune is about a black man ravishing an innocent girl. Some compelling info about the tune and its placement in current latin pop music HERE. I've heard this tune get a lot of play lately at Chief Boima's parties with some folks like NGUZUNGUZU and Toy Selectah (Mad Decent).

Happy Belated Fathers Day

A fistfull of songs loosley based around father hood, and not the Snoop D-o double gizzle televizzle productchizzle...the one where you make babies and hopefully take care of them. Most of the gentlemen in these songs do not. Happy Belated Fathers Day.

Not Still

Hello, this is a new mix entitled, 'Not Still'. Its been in the works for a casually very long time. The sentiment in every track is a soundtrack while you accomplish your aspirations. Its about going to see that friend, finishing that project thats been lingering, the freedom to participating in what you want, experimenting in experience, going to talk to that person, climbing real high, going really really far, making your ideas travel, or simply dusting off the metal detector & finding the thing thats been missing...

I hope these songs find you well. Have a grand summer.

Take care & please enjoy!

Hood Tuesday...Godfather Don?

That dude who fucked with Keith (Cenobites) and Ultramag (he did most of The Four Horsemen album for Ultra)? That is true. Kiji put it on me when he sent me this Godfather Don and Keith joint called slaves, which is apparently where The Cenobites got their start (for The Cenobites version of this joint that got cut from the album click here). After Ultramag time Godfather released a handfull of material some of which is still getting released super limited style, here is the album he made after The Cenobites, Diabolique. Since the whole album couldn't fit into one download I made a second that has some of his other stuff, ep's and such. Enjoy.

Dare to Be Stupid

Fits my day.

Broadway all day.


Too black for Hood Tuesday...

Apparently pro black 90's rap is too black for Hood Tuesday, so I offer you Tragedy Khadafi-errr-Intelligent Hoodlum's 1993 masterpiece Tragedy: Saga of a Hoodlum. Beats sound familiar? They should. Remember when I threw The Real Live album at you? Like A.D.O.R? That Here Come The Lords album? K-Def is the shit, and him and Intelligent Hoodlum knock it out the park on this one. Best of K-Def coming soon, and remember, if it's monday...its too black for Hood Tuesday.

P.S. Yes. That is a copy of The Art Of War.

Making You Vibrate Like a Nokia

Major Lazer blew up and the remixes for Hold the Line are making us vibrate like a nokia left and right (I especially LOVE the use of the track for the following video - congrats on your Nintendo 64 kiddo).

In case you've been hiding under a rock, here are different versions of the hit Hold the Line. Personal fave is the Ghislain Poirier remix.

Team Facelift signed to Duckdown

This actually happened a few months back and at first I thought it was a rumor but I caught Machine on the F line platform headed to their Signing Party...so you know straight from the god's gift himself. Definitely check their acapella's they drop at about 3:00 mins in.

Belated Hood Tuesday : Is it black enuf? You tell me

X Clan? Public Enemy? Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy? Tragedy Khadafi...or should I say Intelligent Hoodlum. Ha. If any of these names mean dick to you than you already have this or if you don't, you're welcome. 2 Black 2 Strong & MMG is a crew out of Harlem from the 90's "back when rap was about as political as hot butter on the buttered popcorn" (for the rest of the Village Voice article about these lovely gentlemen click here). Burn Baby Burn is one of tuffest, but over all the whole shit is pretty hardbody. Remember, if its Tuesday (or Wednesday it seems) its gotta be hood.
