This was recorded almost a year ago and all of us forgot about it. I was going to release a 2011 year in review mixtape and never got around to it. One reason was because everyone and their mother did a year end list/release, another was that there was too many releases to keep track of. Eventually I will drop something similar to Wonderful Wino Radio with unreleased tracks, beats, and remixes. I'm not sweating it now because I have a few other projects in the works. This track will most likely be released on GCE Vol. 2 which will be coming shortly.
You go ahead and be sure to keep up. 2012 is gonna be epic.

Download "spanish fly"


The latest release from one of my friends and favorite producer/emcees. I think he changed his name up for this release, but it will always be Junko for me. Dope track, very heartfelt. This kid shouldn't be slept on, he has a ton of talent and thrives off of making classic material. Wake up people. I will always consider him one of us because he continues to contribute to the Cap region.

Download "hardcore"


The premastered leak of this has been circulating around town for weeks, I figured I'd release it since everyone keeps telling me to. Taken from "Show and A" produced by Showbiz

Download "booshwah"


Be on the hunt for more new stuff in the near future from JB aka Dirty Moses and Raw Threat. They've been in collab mode for the past few months. This track features Dephyant from Ironbar Collective. I will be posting more from them as I get it. Gorilla Tao and Dephyant will also be the only featured artists on the new project Sev and myself have put together.

Download "black man, white guy"

and speaking of that....


As you already know or may have heard I've linked with one of the building blocks of 518 hip hop for a new EP. Sev on verses and yours truly on the cuts and production. Sev and myself go back to the early days of Cap City underground hip hop when he was with a group called Master Plan. PJ Katz was working with him on a few things and he introduced the two of us. We never really linked on anything, and crossed paths numerous times but continued to remain friends. Since then he's continued to stay on his grind releasing a string of great albums including, Stu Dent, Slow Burn, Back 2 Dust, Shotgun, and Sondial, just to name a few. I flipped a few remixes and songs in the past for Sev and they came together well. It was only a matter of time before the inevitable happened. Hence, this record. We wanted to put together a solid piece of classic material without all the hoopla and immaturity. We have a wonderful scene here that draws people from all walks of life to check us out and I've had various conversations during the sessions with Sev on how to help expand and build it more. That's what we've all been doing from the beginning, isn't it? We have all grown up, lived here and learned lessons from different situations and people we've come across over the years. Time is limited for some of us with lives and families outside of this music, but we make the time and still all strive to enhance our overall product. I'm speaking for everyone that I know in the 518 that is on the same page. The title and cover to Sinderblock is meant to symbolize a bond and link between artist, producer and talent. You can't just learn talent you have to be born with it. Obviously, you can't build an entire building with just one block, but that is where it always starts. The artwork was done by Michael Manasseh. The album is complete and set to drop 3.6.12 There will be also 2 videos coming soon. One of those videos will be the first release off the project called "right and exact". It will be available via various websites and blogs. This album will also be released on Itunes.

Here's an early remix I did for Sev's PCM edition of Slow Burn. The lyrics were ahead of their time then , and still are relevant today. This is just a preview and to remind you about how important it is to make tracks that are timeless.


Peace and love peeps.

...and while we're on the topic of blue. Here are a few more "blue" releases I had in the stash. Remember folks...I put these out there for listening purposes. Not so all you producers can get lazy and start raping the entire release. Most of these have been taken by producers that actually matter, so try not to be that guy that isn't doing anything original. As Paula Deen would say, everything is good in moderation.

This one is a classic but rather rare mixtape by Pete Rock that I've been revisiting a bit again lately. For some odd reason this fantastic mix was strictly limited to a Japan release where it was available on cassette and CD via EMI's Toshiba label in 1999. Now be warned that this is not your average hip-hop mixtape and is certainly not for everyone. The project is sort of Pete Rock's way of paying tribute to the jazz legends whose music he grew up on and would inspire him to become one of the best hip-hop producers the world has ever seen. As the title suggests the 16 tracks picked by Pete for this mix all comes from the Blue Note catalouge, one of the most succesful and famous jazz labels there ever was. These artists and songs have inspired hip-hop artists for decades, and many of them have been used in sample form to create new timeless classics by groups like A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, D.I.T.C. and of course Pete Rock himself.

Between this and Madlib's "Shades Of Blue" (2003) these type of releases are one of the best ways for a hip-hop head to break into the incredible music known as jazz. The two genres shares alot of common ground and not at all exclusively through the sampling of old jazz records. I often say that the guys who rocked the jazz scene back in those days, would be the same guys doing hip-hop if they were born in this day and age. Matter of fact, I wouldn't be suprised if someone like Dilla actually was John Coltrane reincarnated. So even if you don't listen to jazz, at least take some time out to check out Pete Rock on the wheels of steel. Who knows, maybe you'll dig this shit alot more than you would expect?

Included in the actual CD package were a few rare pics from the '99 recording session and an interview with Pete Rock about his fascination with these artists and their music, the Blue Note catalouge and his motives behind putting this mix together. You can check out all that right here @ Discogs.

DJ Brace, who's known for his work with BBAS has dropped this new full length release. Synesthasia is the second album from Brace’s Electric Nosehair Orchestra Project.

Part of the concept for Nostomania was the idea that sound can pull up long neglected memories. Synesthasia is something like a crossed wire in the brain where one sense connects with another;
a color might have a certain smell, or maybe you can taste a sound.

Synesthasia available through

Here's something cool for you who love the sound of vinyl. This was recorded early in 2011 with his band The County direct to a vinyl press. The sound quality is good for a live recording. It's nice to hear them knock out something on the fly. Any fan of Hawthorne's would be pleased to have this in their collection.

Dont' get excited ya big dummy. I would never post something that would make real heads lose money. #ComonMan I haven't really been into the whole "death rap/violencecore" stuff as of late. Although, this album could possibly convert me back to a born again piece of shit, that would stomp on your Jordan's and slap that Mai Tai outta your Drakecake hands.

A Message from Necro:





Check out the interview with Kool G. Rap


I know I'm a tad late on these, but what the hell. I had to give my take on these 2 cool releases. Common had to air out Drake on this. I really don't follow Rozay too much, but I guess this was the track everyone was buzzin about. I'm not sure why Common played the other parts and didn't just jack the beat and body the whole thing. To be honest, I'm so out of the loop with MMG that I have no idea why these 2 are even beefing in the first place. Really, who the fuck cares. This is a no contest situation. If I were Common, i wouldn't have even responded, but I knew someone was just waiting to get on Drake and that preschool flow of his.

Download "the remix"


This is the song inspired by the birth of Hov's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. It is said to feature the baby, but the weird thing is... baby's don't start making noise like that until after a few days or even weeks sometimes. Maybe baby Blue pulled a C and C Music Factory flip. Ironic that the name is Blue considering that S. Carter dropped 3 albums called the blue print. Some dope lines in this jam and a nice dedication to his wife and 1st born. Nice job Jigga...and I know most of you know he will be trying again with that one. If Beyonce was my wife I wouldn't mind trying a few more times too. S. Jr. is the only one that could inherit the throan.

I told you last post this was my artist of the year from the west coast. There's a reason why.


He's been talking about this all year on twitter making small references all year and now it is finally here. Nice beat and song selection make this a dope disc to ride to. BBAS was on the grind hard in 2011, and now steps off 2012 with a bang.

Salute to GM, who did the mixing and mastering. Do what you like to retweet, share, bootleg, link, etc to help Arlene become a household name.

We’ve been fans of Chuck Inglish for as far back as we can remember. With some of the best sounds in hip-hop, this dude has provided bangers for almost every new rapper in the game, not to mention his work with countless heavy hitters and his group The Cool Kids. To kick the new year off right, Chuck has dropped a beat tape featuring twenty instrumentals that he’s been working on for the past few months. Remember where you heard it first yo.

I remember checking for this cat when he only had like 100 views on his cooking videos. He's stepped it up tremendiously over the past year with his songs and style of rap. He used to be known as the cook who raps like Ghostface... Now after linking up with hip hop legend Dante Ross, Statik Selektah, and Alchemist. Him and his Smart Crew are a staple in the NYC hip hop scene. Let's also take some time to shout out his co-defendant Mayhem Lauren, for encouraging him to continue with emceeing and stepping aside to let his people shine. That's the real shit that will keep great music coming out of the most unexpected places.


Blu-Jesus_(prod. by Madlib)-2011-UC

Blu has really impressed me this year. I always loved the earlier Blu and Exile stuff because it was unlike anything you had ever heard. Real chill and mellow, but also original. Even after going on his solo, Blu has managed to hold his own and continue to grow into a great artist. He put a lot of work in this year and worked with a ton a excellent producers. He will be around for a long time for sure.

Happy New Year.
