Justin Timberlake – Suit and Tie [DJ Smu’s No Rap Edit]

Justin-Timberlake-Suit-and-Tie

Here’s a no Rap Edit of Justin Timberlake’s Comeback Single produced by Timbaland.
For the record: I like the Hov Verse. I just thought i make this for people who don’t appreciate Rap Music as much as i do or for a house party.

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’

Rest In Peace Nate Dogg (Open Letter)


R.I.P. Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (August 19, 1969 – March 15, 2011)

When i woke up this morning i saw people talking about Nate Dogg’s Death.Of course i first thought it was a sick joke that somebody made up (You know what the internet is like these days). But when i read further on i saw Snoop Dogg talking about it too so i knew it was serious.

The sad thing is we lost another great Hip Hop/Singer Artist way too early.
When News came out that he suffered from 2 strokes in the last 3-4 years my hopes – that he’d ever made a comeback to the music bizz – were kinda gone from one moment to the next.

The great thing about Nate Dogg was his unique Voice that made every hook that he sung/rapped unique in any way.

He was involved in so many records from Dr.Dre’s “The Chronic” to Mobb Deep’s last LP on G-Unit Records and so many more,so it was fair that the fans called him “the real Captain Hook” because he was THE hook man in Hip Hop.

I grew up with his music so it’s kinda hard to realise that he’s gone….
From a positive note though: We never know how much pain he was suffering from after those 2 strokes,so maybe it’s good for himself,his close friends and family that he doesn’t have to suffer no more.

My condolences go to his Family,Warren G,Snoop Dogg,The DPG and many other people who were very close to this man.

Nate,Rest in Peace! Your Voice and your Music won’t be forgotten to me.Even though i’d loved to see you on some sort of a “Next Episode” Record on Detox maybe.
