Now this is what I needed. Some of that VegTroit heat! You should recognize Slimm’s name as he handles all our official mixtapes, mixes. And NR is undefeated in our (2)Dope Beat Battle series (which I’m bringing back soon enough). Check as the brothers link up for a new joint that may or may not be on Slimm’s upcoming album.

Here is a track I did with NR..big ups to NR, dude’s got beats!…I also got my boy Phenomenon to drop a verse and Cee Nario to do a little something at the end of the track. We got a lot of projects in the works right now including the next Jo Well & DJ DviousMindZ EP titled Dollars & Sense..an Antidotes EP, and Markfader’s projects (Tale of The Tape 09/01)..We are readying albums to release in Japan as well. Thank you all for the continued love and support!
If your still sleeping on NR’s production, your ears suck haha. Emcees do yourself a favor and let this man produce your next track.

So for some wild reason I thought I already posted the results a week or two ago haha. Leave it up to Meka posting some outside submission to finally push me to post. My fault! Anyways… unlike the last battle, this time around it was pretty one-sided with NR sweeping all the votes (NMC, myself, Meka & 92% of the dopeboyz/girlz). Congrats the him and look out for the next battle (that will be ran much smoother). And since the dopeboyz/girlz are the ones who helped make 2DopeBoyz what it is, who would you like to see go up against NR in the next battle?

Dopeboyz and dopegirlz, the submissions for the 2nd 2DBz Beat Battle are in! They we’re actually submitted on Sunday but I couldn’t find the time to post on Monday. In case you didn’t see the set up post. Jansport J is up against NR (who won the first battle). The task at hand was to flip Suzanne Vega’s Tom’s Diner (which can be heard here). Once again I’ve uploaded both beats as “Beat 1″ and “Beat 2″. There will be a vote from myself, a vote from Meka, a collective vote from the NMC and a vote from the c-boyz/girlz. In an event of a tie, we will go another round. Good luck to both producers…

A few weeks back we held our first ever Beat Battle at the dopehouse. NR vs DviousMindZ; with NR coming out victorious. I’ll announce the next challenger sometime this week(myself and Meka have a pretty fresh idea for the battle). Anyways… NR put together this beat cd (mixed by DJ Slimm) as he was with me in Phoenix this weekend for the One Stop Shop. I helped distribute the hard copies to the likes of Skyzoo, Black Milk, etc. So we’ll see where that goes. But you can never underestimate the power of the internet people! So we got together a link and figured it would be best to shoot it to ya’ll. Artists looking to hop on any of these tracks, feel free to hit him up and you can work out getting you an untagged version. Dave Chappelle FTW! We’re also working on a 6-8 track EP featuring production by NR & Slimm with artists like Outasight, Kyle Lucas, Nero, QuESt, etc on the rhymes. Look out for that! By the time this post goes up I’ll probably in a drug induced state of mind; so check out the beats and hit NR up to let him know what you think!

Alright folks… last week I put up the submissions from both DviousMindz & NR for the first ever beat battle on 2dopeboyz. Giving them the challenge of flipping Radiohead’s Karma Police. The voting was left up to myself (1 vote), Meka (1 vote), the rest of the NMC (1 vote) and the dopeboyz/girlz (1 vote). In the event of a tie we would have pushed for another round. Alas… there was no tie. Check the voting (and winner announcement) after the jump…
While most of the dopeboyz vote on the DviousMindz x NR battle, I figured it would be a good time to throw up this new tape from NR‘s bro, DJ Slimm. Some of ya’ll already know Slimm can hold it down on the mic just as good as he can with the wheels of steel. If you don’t, get ready. Here he goes in over beats off Black Milk’s Music From the Color Purple (with the exception of the intro… which is from Tronic). It’s a (Las) Vegas x Detroit thaang!
What up ya’ll. At the beginning of the week I proposed a (beat) battle between DviousMindZ & NR. Giving them about 4 solid days to take Radiohead’s Karma Police and do what they do! Both DviousMindZ and NR submitted their beats yesterday but I decided to keep it on schedule and make the post today. For judges, we’ve got myself, Meka (counting as seperate votes), the dopeboyz/girlz (use the poll after the jump) and a special vote from the rest of the NMC. I kept the names off each beat so folks won’t vote based of fanboy’ism but rather judge on the actual production. In the event of a tie… fuck it, we’ll go another round. Why not? UPDATE: Fixed the poll and file tags haha. Smh @ that fail. Get to voting!!

So I’m sitting here on this Saturday afternoon; trading music with my man DJ Slimm. We’ve been playing beats left and right, just vibing out. A few DviousMindz tracks came on in the shuffle and that’s when the idea hit us. A beat battle would be dope for 2dbz! Myself & Meka will decide on a sample and the two of them can flip it anyway they want. The winner can be decided by myself, Mek Dot and the dopeboyz/girlz out there. That’s when NR stood up and said to make an announcement for him calling out DviousMindz. DMindz doesn’t know about this post and I’m sure I’ll get an email for the blind side attack (which I apologize for) but this is hip hop! I really think this could be a cool little series we run from now on as well. And don’t think, because you haven’t heard much from NR that he isn’t nice. This will definitely be a good battle (if Dvious accepts). The pressure is on…
In honor of the late great Marvin Gaye’s passing 25 years ago; Akili, Tariq, DJ Slimm & NR put together an instrumental tribute mixtape for ya’ll to vibe out to. Don’t sleep on Vegas’ finest (shouts to Trayo & SeDrew as well!). And trust me when I say, there will be plenty more material from these guys in the near future.

Before I head out I wanted to let ya’ll in on a little secret. My folk DJ Slimm & NR are machines! Crazy work ethic, ill beats, etc. You’ll be hearing a lot from them soon enough. Beliee dat. Since it’s the 12 year anniversary (well, it was… but I couldn’t get this to upload right) of B.I.G.’s untimely passing; the brothers put together a 6 track EP compiled of Biggie’s vocals over their smooth production. You’ll see hear.

Fans of LiveSoul should already know that DJ Slimm can get down on the mic just as much as he can with the 1s & 2s. Shouts to his brother NR (who you will be hearing PLENTY of beats from soon) for sending over this little freestyle he did over some Jake One goodness.
