Daytona and Harry Fraud have been doing lots of work (that we have been posting on here). Mixtape’s the next move. Obviously. And because it is expected, that makes it less spectacular huh? C’mon now… where are you right now? You think we put up the mediocre? You think our rep can take that hit? Answer: HELLLLL NAWWW!
Surf School’s in session! Daytona’s mixtape “M.I.N.K.S.” (entirely produced by Harry Fraud) features some nice features – Adrian Lau, Chinx, Smoke DZA, Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Daz Dillinger, Chuck Inglish, Chavis Chandler, Al-Doe… ‘Nuff talkin’. Get to listening (and downloading) for FREE!
Chris Read x WhoSampled – A Tribe Called Quest’s “People’s Instinctive Travels & The Paths of Rhythm” (Mixtape)
No way it’s been 25 years!! Yup. But before anyone starts with the ‘so old’ jokes…STOP. Let’s celebrate instead. With this dope mixtape stream put together in recognition of the 25th Anniversary of the release of A Tribe Called Quest’s “People’s Instinctive Travels & The Paths of Rhythm.” Mixed by Chris Read and WhoSampled for Wax Poetics mag. All that and then some (points if you recognized what we did there with that Phife’ism).
I’m too f#cking sexy for my fucking self; but I’m too f#cking sexy for anybody else…

Boogie got more of that good west coast smoke for all y’all. Grab a drink. Press play.

Special bonus for you after the jump!

Young Buck has always been one of my favorites in G-Unit. Good to see he’s back at it. Young Buck’s “Not This Time” dropped as part of the “10 Bullets” mixtape. There’s the version hosted by DJ Whoo Kid, but we got the raw no-talk version linked for you below.

“I’m gearing up for the release of “Petestrumentals 2” with Mello Music Group. The first single “One, Two, A Few More” is actually a beat I made in 1995 and just sat on for years for the right moment. Now, I get a chance to release this and more new & unreleased music never heard by my fans with Mello. This instrumental LP will inspire the masses in anything you are doing. Just apply P2 to it and get on the road to success.” – Pete Rock

In a time where producers are being sued for samples and R&B singers are cussing more than rappers, a project like Hours Spent Loving You is something the game needs right now. Vocalist SPZRKT producer/DJ Sango give us this seven track EP that you can play from start to finish. This can be thrown on while chilling with your lady, or ladies while you’re thinking of your man, or if you just want to hear some nice chill music ‘Hours Spent Loving You’ does the trick. If you are not that familiar with Sango CLICK HERE for the interview ArtByOdell did with him when he was last in Atlanta.
Jaden Smith continues to impress me with his music. It’s not just the lyrical wordplay & flow that’s impressing me with each single or project he releases, but often times its the type of soundscapes he chooses to use. One very important element to a good emcee is being able to choose the right beats to convey the mood of the song you’re trying to create. It was a pleasant surprise for me to see that the son of Will & Jada collaborated with very dope producer TA-KU who’s music & production I’ve been following for quite some time now. Peep this #BeastMode mix that Jaden & Ta-Ku put together & if you weren’t already impressed, this should definitely do it for you. Artwork via samuelburgessjohnson.com/

DASH Radio is going to be as huge as Sirius satellite radio if not even bigger in the near future due to their enormous new deal with AT&T to provide their service in cars. There’s many great internet radio stations on the web, but the game changer is being able to get those stations in people’s cars where they can use it as effortlessly as turning on a terrestrial radio station. Unlike satellite radio which is a paid subscription service, Dash Radio is free & you can even download their app to listen to a variety of the stations they have via your mobile app. Make sure you check out our homie DJ Rasta Root who will be on DASH Radio’s ‘Native Rhymes’ channel from 5pm EST / 2pm PST today with a special tribute to the legendary ‘J Dilla’.

Gotta be the shortest mixtape on record (“12 minutes” elapsed time, really). Donwill and Von Pea get right to it and through it at Karriem Riggins’ spot. It’s good. Damn good. Just short. You still get your money’s worth (and not just because it’s FREE).
