Crooked I – Hard In The Paint [Week 11] + Smu Mix

Week 11 and no slowing down. Crooked I takes on Waka Flocka’s “Hard In the Paint” alongside Joell Ortiz and shows Waka Flocka how the song should’ve sounded. Also made a Smu Mix as usual with Vado joining the 2 in the mix. Sorry for the delays but i think the mix will make that up for sho!

DJ Premier – Sing Like Bilal [Instrumental]

If you’re a true Hip Hop head (like me) you probably are keen on DJ Premier’s Beat Catalogue and the joints he did with Nas,Fat Joe and other honorable names.

About 2 Years ago he decided to release an Beat Tape called “Beats that Collected Dust” with instrumentals that he was doing for other artists but then got turned down by the MC’s who were supposed to get the beat.

Here’s one of the Beats that started to become popular this year when Joell Ortiz decided to rap over it on Funk Flex’ Radio Show (What Up Flex!) It samples Gang Starr’s Song “We Got Gunz” with a vocal sample by M.O.P’s Lil Fame.

Crooked I – Boardwalk Empire/Hello [Week 10] + Smu Mix

“I started this weekly shit and this the muthafuckin thanks i get?!”

Week 10 and still going. This time Crooked I decided to go in over the Boardwalk Empire Theme Beat and Ice Cube’s “Hello” if you know the original you know he had to adapt the hook to address the people sayin Kanye was the trendsetter for this weekly Track ish.

DJ Premier featuring Various Artists – BET Awards Cypher 2010 + Guru Tribute

Damn this shows you how fast the time passes by.1 Year after the really dope BET Cypher it returns with another pretty dope year of artists trading Bars over a Beat that Premo laced for this event and lets be honest the Cyphers are the only good thing about these “awards”.

The whole thing was split in 5 Groups,broadcasted inbetween the ads,but i thought it would be better for y’all to get that joint in one piece (almost 17 1/2 Minutes).

Here are this years Cypher Guests in order of their appearance: Wiz Khalifa (spittin a one year old verse.smh),Bones Brigante,Yelawolf,Raekwon,Tyga,Kuniva (of D12),Diamond,Royce Da 5’9″,Ice Cube & Sons (OMG & Doughboy),Reverend Run & Sons (Diggy & JoJo),Reek Da Villian,Zawcain,Mickey Factz,Kanye West,Pusha T,Big Sean,Cyhi Tha Prynce & Common

I also thought it would be nice to post the Guru Tribute aswell,although (in my opinion) I think 2 Minutes of talking on stage ain’t enough for such a great Hip Hop Artist,they should’ve given Premo more time.BET also made a 10 minute Tribute payin homage to late and great Keith “Guru” Elam. R.I.P! Gangstarr for Live!

You can check the BET:Guru Tribute @ the DJ Premier Blog

Have a blessed day!

Joe Budden – Mood Muzik Mondays

Joe decided to do Mood Muzik Mondays and drops a new Joint every monday of the month until Mood Muzik 4: A Turn For The Worse finally gets released to the masses on the 26th of October.

Since then there were 2 Joints released and I decided to put up both Joints that Joe Budden himself has decided to release so far. I also added a Joint that won’t make the cut for the actual Mixtape/Album.

Throwback Mix: Crooked I featuring Chamillionaire & Akon – Dream Big [Smu Mix]

It’s been a minute since i dropped this Gem right here. I call this mix a Gem because this was my very first Mix that i started my career with.

Crooked I released this Track as a promotional single for his B.O.S.S LP that was supposed to drop back then but never really did for some reason….

However it got some plays on a few radio stations and Chamillionaire co-signed the track with his Freestyle over this Beat on his Mixtape Messiah Series.Dope!

I thought both versions were hella dope and somehow I wanted to have both artists on this track so i started mixin them together.

First there only was a dirty version but i got hands on Crooked’s Radio Edit so i put together the radio edit too.

Enjoy!
