(Oh…and the body in the car…and the bodies of the cars. Very nice. Yeah, we noticed!)
Ohhhh! My bredren from waaay back! This one put me on a flashback to us chilling at the station Thursday into Friday, then riding out in The Couch (my beige beater ’85 Caprice Classic), toting crates, and him rocking gigs Friday into Saturday and beyond! Memories. Good to hear DJ Soul (ha, going with the throwback handle) still doing the damn the right damn way… just like did when he was running the WVUA-FM Wide World Of Hip-Hop back in the guts of the Golden Era. Soul sent me a CD y’all. Fortunately, he included a link to the mix online, so he went new school enough for me to share with y’all. Up with the tech, but still…
45 Forty-Five Records mixed on two turntables; No Serato and no special edition remixes; Extended version of this mix coming soon
Thank you, DJ Soul (aka Everett Whiteside aka RunWRC) my University of Alabama schoolmate, for the blessing of “45 Forty-Fives.” And Happy Belated Birthday homie!!
(Click play and enjoy the stream above, and ooh’s and aah’s you get from learning where some classic Hip-Hop samples came from… and from memories of actually playing some of these jams on tapes and vinyl, if you were around back then. And keep reading for more great stuff after the jump.)
Rest In Peace, Sean Price. Watch here as P! is playing and commenting on “Songs In The Key Of Price” tracks with Mr. Green.

This is so dope! Respect to Deejay Irie for doing justice to the Hip-Hop giant Sean Price. Rest in Peace shout to P!
8-8-2015 the Hip hop community lost Sean Price a.k.a. the brokest rapper you know. Like many I’m shocked to hear this. Sean P is one of my top 5 all time favorite rappers. For this reason I decided to pay homage to him by creating a video mix with only Sean P spitting those crazy, funny, clever and real rhymes that we all love.

ERYKAH BADU – FEEL BETTER, WORLD! (MIXTAPE)
Not sure if the “[|]” mixtape title on Soundcloud was Majid Jordan being deep or forgetful. Well, for now, forget about it. Whatever it was meant to be called, rename that ish to ‘The Dope Eclectic Mix’…because it is what it is!
Cannon! Haaa! One of the preeminent mixtapers (Don Cannon) out there hosted this Nas x Cookin Soul release from 2010 they finally dropped for anyone who wants to pick up.
NAS X COOKIN SOUL – THE LOST TAPES 1.5 (MIXTAPE) [INSTRUMENTAL]
Not a stretch at all to put the lovely Lyric Jones in the Honeyz spot (noon). But… we’re focusing on the lyrics, not the lips and legs, for this one. Salute to all that for being all that though *wink*
It’s all jokes ’til you got an appetite for flesh.
– Lyric Jones
Lyric out here killing and eating whack emcees! Yeah. Dirty Diggs’ mixtape “Rodman” ought to get some good promo mileage out of this visual niceness from the ‘pookie’ Lyric Jones. Respect to her for hitting up on the Twitter. Making sure we had this heater. She was absolutely right! Click play and peep.

So often mixes are either all Hip Hop, all R&B all Rock etc. Then when you hear someone advertise new music you never heard before a lot of times it’s a reason you never heard it and not happy you finally did. Well our friends over at Hometown Heroes have you covered Sayeed & Zee meticulously craft mixes that have Hip Hop, Soul, R&B, Rock, New Age, House, Garage etc. Now you might think well with all of those different genres how does it sound? It sounds good because they make sure that all of the tracks work together so yes you get taken on a musical journey but it’s a smooth ride. Be sure to stay connected with them at their HomeTownHeroesATL site for the next mix and the next show they put together!
With all the freestyles Fab has been dropping as of late, it’s only right that he hit the Hip-Hop nation off with a mixtape of ’em… AND a few tracks exclusive to the project! Check out the FREE downloadable mixtape “Friday Night Freestyles.” Fabolous and DJ Clue did the work for this project!
