Nas Featuring Jadakiss – Hold Down The Block [Smu Mix]

This Joint originally appeared on Nas’ Hip Hop Is Dead LP back in 2006.

The Mark Batson produced Track was one of the more quiet ones on the album but still dope regardless.

This Year Jadakiss decided to Remix the Joint so i thought i place him on this joint together with the great Nas to make it a all New York Remix.

Shoutout to Nas and Jada!

Lupe Fiasco – DJ Semtex Freestyle (Edited/No Cursing)

(Lupe and Sway rocking their new fitted caps;Courtesy of Semtex)
Lupe is currently in the UK to make some Promo for his upcoming Lasers LP.
He was on Tim Westwood’s Show on his Birthday and killed one Beat but since hanging out with Tim wasn’t enough Lupe also decided to visit his friend DJ Semtex to “blast off” (word to Eminem) on 3 Instrumentals (Kanye’s “Monster” with (the second guest) Sway,Nicki Minaj’s “Moment For Life” and Birdman’s Fireflame).
Since it’s a radio show it’s kept clean for the masses for now. If unedited versions should drop I will update this post.

Katy Perry,Kanye West & Tinie Tempah – E.T. [Smu RMX]

Since I’m on my “something different” mood i thought i share this brand new mix with y’all!

It’s a remix of a Track from Katy’s recent “Teenage Dream” Album and gets some airplay in the states and in the UK.

For each region she made a Remix with Kanye and one with Tinie Tempah.

Since both versions are quite dope i thought it would be just right to mix ’em together.

Bring that Back: Slaughterhouse & Eminem – Microphone [Smu Mix]

It’s been almost 2 Years since i released this Mix back then with the support of Witty Soprano who posted the joint on youtube.
Anyway i thought since Slaughterhouse signed to Shady and Eminem was quite successful at the Grammys that it would only be right to bring that mix back.
I fixed the blending from Em to Slaughterhouse and it sounds slightly better than the version i dropped back then.
Shouts to #TeamShady and Slaughterhouse of course.

Food For Thought: Lupe Fiasco – B.M.F. (Building Minds Faster) 2010

Here’s some Food For Thought Shit for all you people out there.

You probably think I’m slow as fuck posting a joint from last Year but it’s too dope not to play it this year.

Lupe decides to take on the Rick Ross and Styles P Joint “Blowing Money Fast” to give the people something to think about – Food For Thought…

Just check the lyrics below and you’ll understand why i called it that way:

Lyrics

[Chorus]
I think I’m Malcolm X, Martin Luther
Add a King, add a Junior
Some Bible verses, a couple sunnahs
An AK-47, that’s a revolution
Then, think I’m Tupac, Bob Marley
Fela Kuti, Marcus Garvey
Them the real ones, light a lighter for ‘em
Let you know, that I’m ridin’ for ‘em

[Verse]

Gon’ git me some, a little mo’ beat
Call your friends around, then call the police
I’m ridin’ wit my flow, it take up fo’ seats
So I’m gon’ ghost ride, but with no sheets
One man by myself, even then I’m four deep
Like hotel swimming pools, that’s four feet
These n-ggas like the rooms, so suite
Priceline, so cheap
I’m a cell phone, they some room keys
I’m some shell toes, they the shoestrings
I turn ‘em off (I turn ‘em off)
I take ‘em out (I take ‘em out)
I’m Reverend Run, with the laces out
My Adidas, so adios
All day I dream, like I’m comatose
That’s your ship sinking, and I’m so afloat
I’m T-Pain, I’m on a boat
Not the slave one, the Caprios either
Here the waves come, they started in the bleachers
So I’m swag surfin’, the pool’s gettin’ deeper
You still sweet, though, here come them roomkeepers
Okay, I be the strings, you be the shoes
But guess what? Now they Jimmy Choos
I wear the pants, you in the Poohs
Yo’ shit meows, my shit awoooooos
I got a fifth floor, call me Brother Man
Africa the set, yeah, that’s the Motherland
For that BP, I shed fifty tears
In Nigeria that oil been spillin’ for like fifty years
“Fifty years? Hell naw!”
Hell yeah! I’m tryna tell y’all
At this rate, n-ggas gon’ lose
Can’t search for water, or grow your own food
Tell me what’s gon’ happen, when them stores close
And ain’t gon’ open up, no more?
That’s the realest shit, yeah, you gon’ feel that
Hunger’s your enemy, but you can’t kill that
N-gga, wake up, don’t join the Army
Kill your own peoples, but fear Illuminatis
And they ain’t even real, or are they?
But you wouldn’t even know, because you partay
Too fucking much, if you start to doubt
They already in your mind, and comin’ out yo’ mouth
It’s not a trick, n-gga, it’s a trap
Survival of the fit, is what they aimin’ at
And n-ggas ain’t fit (nope), fat as hell (yep)
Fat in mind (yep), body fat as well
Who use most the drugs? Americans!
What’s in Afghanistan? Heroin!
You think that’s by mistake? They can stop that?
Don’t think you safe though, because you not black
Greed is colorblind, so I’m colorblind
They gon’ fuck with yours soon as they done with mine
They say I try too hard, verses overwhelm
I learned most of this, from n-ggas sittin’ in jail
Where you think I’m from? From the streets, n-gga
Triple OGs, told me to teach, n-gga
And that ain’t made up, that’s a fact
They say that gangsta shit, is the shit I rap
Look who I attract, look at my inner circle
Buncha street n-ggas, and a couple Urkels
Look at my fan base, oh, yes
Fuck what Pro say, look at this protest
Where they do that at? (Huh?) Who they do that for? (Who?)
Must mean I’m doin’ bad, and things is movin’ slow
They talkin’ revolution, on public radio
They catch down in Houston, sittin’ on them 84s
Trae, what’s up? AVN
Got your back, n-gga, sink or swim
Free Chilly Chill, shake off yo’ masters
Pray to God, build your mind faster

Make sure you go and support Lupe’s Lasers next Month. It’s most definately worth the money!

Something Different: Skylar Grey – Love The Way You Lie [Original]

Yes,Yes,Yes I’m back! It’s been quiet for a while and i apologize for that.I’ll make it up to you with this gem that i found on the internet today.

This is actually the Original “Love the Way You Lie” Song before Rihanna’s Team decided to take it for her and Eminem.

I must admit i’m not that much into modern RnB these days but there is something about Skylar Grey that always gives me goosebumps when i listen to her.

This Song was no exception because you can kind of believe every word that she was singing on there.

Even if you are tired of the original (unless you are one of those 10% who didn’t overplay it while it was getting heavy rotation on tv and radio stations…) you should give this version a try,Skylar simply did a great job on this one. Sorry RiRi

Oh yeah if you still try to figure out if you have heard her voice before: Yes you probably did – She was lending a chorus to a Fort Minor Song named “Where’d You Go” under her “old” alias Holly Brook.
If you’re looking for more of her music make sure you check out and support: “Coming Home” by Diddy Dirty Money/J.Cole (he wrote the actual song) and Dr.Dre’s new Single with Eminem called “I Need A Doctor” where she provided choruses for both songs.
I hope you enjoy this Version of the track like I did and make sure you spread the word.
