I normally wouldn't post Wale, but I have to say that I am impressed by the beat selection on this album. It could be that all of the sudden he knows what he is doing, or that his uncle, DJ Clark Kent is helping along the way. Not a big MMG fan, but some of Wale's stuff is aight. Download it, give it a run, and let me know what ya think.

Torae dropped this recently and I think it's pretty dope. A definite must have for any Torae fan or underground music collector. He dabbles and toys with what the holidays were like for him growing up all wrapped up in tissue paper and for free. It becomes a funny parallel as you being to remember things that everyone had goin on years back.

Skillz is here with his annual year end (w)rap up. I fuckin' can't stand this beat, as a matter of fact, I'm guessing this is the worst wrap up of all time......of all time. He has officially bowed out and states that this will be the last one. Listen Here. Skillz new album "Thoughts Become Things', ironically dropped one week ago. Grab it here if you like.

I can't front, I'm still coming around to this dude. Some of his stuff is hot and some of it is just hit or miss for me. Either way, another free stocking stuffa. He seems to be doing all the right things... working with the right people, hopping on the right beats, and even putting dollar $igns in his name. Smart to do a cover that is a .gif as well. Whatever the reason enjoy bumping his newest of Joey this season. On a sad note... Capital Steez, Joey's friend and rhyme partner took his own life today at 19. I wish it was a joke. Read more about it here.

The annual mixtape, which usually features a nice mix of my favorite tracks of the year and some unheard exclusives. This isn't one of those mixtapes that you find on Datpiff, or DJBooth amongst the flood of wackness and watered down junk. This is a REAL mixtape, you know, like the ones no one makes anymore. Yeah, well I still do what I've been doing for years. I make these not only for myself and my fans and true followers, but also to pay homage to the great music that has or hasn't dropped. The delay on this was inevitable due to edits and things that were beyond my control. If you have been following the series, you know ATF usually drops on Thanksgiving. Special thanks to De La Soul for comin thru and hooking it up for me. Much more to come in 2013. Stay tuned and don't get caught slippin.

Here is a hilarious video that surfaced of BIG tossing a bottle at Big Kap for fuckin up his set more than a few times. Lil Cease catches a case of the giggles n shit too. I'd have to do the same thing if that shit was me.


While we are looking at rare videos... this video was just released and was recorded hours before Biggie's death. A ton of cameos and shout outs in this video. It seemed like everyone was in Vegas that weekend.


Yet another rare video I came across in my recent travels. Stillwell Q kills this shit, shouts to the whole ASF crew. Talks of a reunion album in the works are fluttering. I also know for a fact that there is a slew of unreleased OG Arsonist's tracks from when the recorded "As The World Burns". This was one of the the things we spoke about when I kicked it with Q a few months back. Props to RSC as well.

Till the next time. Merry Chrismahanaqwaznika.
