Fabolous & J.Cole – Wolves In Sheep Clothing [Smu Mix]

This Joint appeared on Fabolous’ latest “Soul Tape” Mixtape featuring Paul Cain. I wasn’t really feeling Cain’s verse so i replaced him with J.Cole instead for a better Version of Kanye West’s Devil In A New Dress.

Make sure you check out that Soul Tape all over the Internet,it contains some original productions too!

Rest in Peace Guru (1st Year Anniversary) + DJ Premier Tribute Mix


Rest in Peace Keith “Guru” Elam,17th July 1961 – 19th April 2010
“They say it’s lonely at the top but whatever you do,you always gotta watch Motherfuckers around you” – Guru (Moment Of Truth,Moment Of Truth LP,1998)

Today is one of the saddest days in Hip Hop (after Proof’s Death).
One Year ago,the legendary Gang Starr MC Guru passed away after suffering a Heartattack and then falling into a coma after surgery.
The Hip Hop heads who have grown up with his and Premier’s music,like me,were super shocked about his death and still can’t realise that he’s gone.
Since it’s the 1st Year Anniversary i thought i re-post the Guru Tribute Salute that DJ Premier has mixed to pay homage to his late friend and partner.
But instead of having Premier Tags all over the original production tracks i decided to take some time off and add the original untagged Joints to that mix.
I kept the talking bits just like on the original because you can hear some history about Guru;who founded Gangstarr back in the day and much more.
Panchi,Keeblr,Gordon & Milly D are in the studio with Premier to keep the show rollin’

Guests:Blaq Poet,K-Ci aka King of Chill,Vick Black (East NY),The Bartendaz (Giant aka Dr.G & Transformer),Elliot Wilson,Big Eon (of the Gang Starr Foundation),DJ Finesse,Justin Elam Ruff(Guru’s Nephew;Phone),Big Shug (Phone),Singapore Kaine(Phone),DJ JS-1 & Owen (their Lawyer)

Eminem Featuring D12 – On Fire [Smu Mix] (Detroit Edition)

“I’m Back” *Eminem Voice*
This time i brought along a little Mix gem. Y’all probably remember this track with “a bullshit hook” and “2 long ass verses” produced by Mr.Porter from Recovery.This is the exact same joint with a little twist to it. D12 jumped on this Beat for their latest Mixtape/Street Album “Return of the Dozen Vol.2” (it’s only a Dollar so do yourself a favour and cop that!),so i thought it would be just right to add Mr.Mathers to the Mix with the first verse and 2 hooks. It’s sad not to hear Proof over this beat but the rest of the group carried the energy anyway.

Rest in Peace Big Proof!We Miss You!

Something Different: Rihanna – Man Down [Smu Mix] (Featuring Vado & Eve) + S&M [Smu Mix] (Featuring J.Cole & Britney)

2 Smu Mixes of Rihanna Joints

1st one up is the Reggae Vibe Type of Track called Man Down,with Eve and Vado on the Smu Mix.

Download: Rihanna Featuring Vado & Eve – Man Down [Smu Mix]

Number 2 is sorta like a New Princess of Pop meets the old Princess of Pop Remix of Miss Fenty’s Freak Anthem with an additional J.Cole Verse. Roc Nation Pop Mix if you want..

Download: Rihanna Featuring J.Cole & Britney Spears – S&M [Smu Mix]

Enjoy both Tracks and have a nice day!

Note: These 2 Tracks are for the Party People. If you are more into underground/lyrical Hip Hop like i am,feel free to listen to the latest Live From Headqcourterz Show in the post below,trust me it’s worth it.

Lupe Fiasco – Airplanes Part 2 [Smu’s Original Mix] (Featuring Eminem & Hayley Williams)

Well look what we’ve got here. The good people over at Chicago Now got their hands on the previously unreleased original Version of Lupe Fiasco’s “Airplanes Part 2” that features Paramore’s Leadsinger Hayley Williams like on the B.o.B. Version.

Alex Da Kid is still on the production.

What still makes me wonder is why these joints appear now all off a sudden.This happened to “Nothing On You” too (which also was an original Fiasco Joint).
Someone seems to be leaking all the originals to show the Fans what Lasers could’ve sounded like,instead of the final product they received.
Anyway I thought since this is the original Part 2 that i also add Mr.Marshall Mathers on it too to make it sound complete.
