I knocked out Chicago a few posts ago, now it’s time to conquer NY. I didn’t get around to posting these tracks so they all get the bunched up treatment. Shouts to the NMC for most of these. We got a double up from both Papoose as well as Red Cafe (Eviction Notice, July1st!). Big Lou is ready for war. Sha Stimuli goes out for redemption (Hotter Than July, coming soon) while St. Laz needs love again.

So in between a mad weekend where I went to a bachelor party for one of my closest friends and had to help prevent my other friend from punching out some nerd in glasses at the movie theater, I managed to make it to the U-N-I’s video shoot for “Soul Hop,” the latest single off Fried Chicken & Watermelon, which yours truly ended up having a small cameo in as well. I’m tired, my head hurts and I still have to dig through my cyber-crates for the next Mix Show to throw up all the photos and video I took, but for now enjoy the shots Eightys Baby sent me under the cut.
Swacked from eskay’s. Interestingly enough i was talking to someone about Kardinal Offishall this past weekend. Kardinal Offishall > *insert current “hot” rapper here*
In an attempt to make a comeback, Canibus continues to try different things. Here he records 4 different versions to the same song. My man Gremlin came through again as the lyrics are included after the jump for each one. I don’t really understand the meaning of this as lines repeat on different versions. Call me dumb, cause I’m confused. Also, Calling All Soldiers, has Bis going off (in the struggle for survival brothers become rivals/ mothers become homicidal cussin’ at the bible). Lastly, an unmixed (Royce-less version) of a new track on Bar Exam 2 leaked. I’m posting it mainly to build hype that Royce is gonna slaughter Big Boi’s Royal Flush in Andre 3000 style (lots of bars). Can’t wait!
Us dopeboyz, we like to travel. Last post was Chicago related now we’re heading across seas. My man Gremlin hit me off with a few tracks off of the latest album, State of Lunacy (out now), from the UK’s Rhyme Asylum. Both tracks feature a dope guest spot from both Diabloic & Copywrite. I know some can’t get into the accent’s of UK’s emcees (I’m that way at times) but these guys can spit.
Before I go get some greasy pizza to help this slight hang over from last night I wanted to drop a few tracks. How do I go from getting kicked out of Caesar’s Palace to meeting up with my man Tunji at like 4:30am only to get home around 6-7am haha. Whatever though I had a blast. Don’t worry I got you in 2 weeks Tunj! Looking at my I need to upload folder it seems that there are a lot of heaters from the Windy City. So let’s get it going in one post. Most (if not all) came from Boogz & Andrew of course. We got the first leak off The Cool Kids’ upcoming mixtape (That’s Stupid, dropping Tuesday!). We got more unreleased Lupe Fiasco. An unreleased Rhymefest joint with Mikkey Halsted as well as a new track off Mikkey’s upcoming mixtape (Unkrowned City). A very dope cut from the original Juice (who took Eminem down in a battle). And finally, Bullet getting over Nas’ Hero.

The homie Zack sent this through and I thought his description wasn’t right until I heard it. WTF happened!? I honestly don’t know the story behind this and I wish I did. Anyone have the scoop? Obie is off Shady/Interscope? No more second place to Eminem? I’m so confused.

This came through the inbox and the artwork caught my eye, that is one ugly muhfucker haha. DJ Biz puts together a good little mix of music from Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Fabolous & Jadakiss. If you were able to create a monster, what aspects of each emcee would you fuse together?
Tracklist + Download link after the jump…
Just what I thought, more footage came out from Glastonbury 2008. I wasn’t expecting the full Hov show, but it’s all here. Despite all the fuckery that came along with this, it’s really a great step for hip hop as a whole. I wish Shake was in the audience. Him opening up to Wonderwall was genius. This shit is well over 30 minutes long, so make sure you clear some of your schedule. UPDATE: KNOWxONE hit me with the audio in good quality so that’s included to. Hit the jump for the rest…
Kanye urges people to vote in the new Choose Or Lose campaign. So I guess we’re not dying if we don’t vote this time around. Register to vote and make a difference people (Shake will be). ChooseOrLose.com. Speaking of Kanye, he’s called a cunt by Amy Winehouse (which was before or after her going Ron Artest on a fan) and takes the upper road with his response. Good for him.
