Go get you some.
Here goes the bonus 45 with the album.
Imagine you’re Oh No! Your big brother’s Madlib and you, being the idiot you are, decide to produce too! But since you’re so dumb, you don’t realize that you should’ve chosen another career path cause your brother’s already ruling that lane. THEN, you go even a step further with your stupidity and you start pumping out some crazy, obnoxious, absolutely face punching beats.
Well y’know what Oh No! Thank you for being such an idiot. I appreciate your work wholeheartedly.
Lacin the web with some savage remixes, here we go.
Guilty Simpson with an incredible tribute to James Yancey. Madlib on the beat.
Rest in Power Dilla.
In the past 6 years, there have been few other producers/DJ’s who’ve accomplished more than Florida (or Philadelphia, depending on who you ask) native, Diplo.
From hit singles with ex-muse M.I.A. to the success of his own record label, Mad Decent all the way down to becoming the remix darling of damn near every major label and their subsidiaries, Diplo‘s ruining faces and doin it with an almost unparalleled consistency. Combining his love of Baile Funk with damn near every other genre out, like him or not, Diplo has somehow managed to carve out a place for himself that is both unique and exciting and for that, I have nothing but respect.
Now, thanks to HHHT general Marcus Aurelius, Diplo will be finding his way to Taipei for a one night extravaganza and I sincerely insist your attendance. It’s rare that Taiwan gets someone of this caliber, and the chances of a return may be slim unless we ram the place. So Taiwan, book off your Friday, shine up your shoes, and let’s do this. And just to get you excited….some brand new free dope from the man himself.
I AIN’T TALKIN ORENTHAL OR GENE SIMMONS
Madlib and Guilty are back with some new ish. I can’t wait for this shit to finally drop.
LET THERE BE HORNS
And finally, the homeboy RJD2 is gearing up the promo for his brand new record, The Colossus, and I can only imagine you’ll be catching a lot more of his ish here on HHHT.
The first official single off the new record….enjoy.
RJD2 – LET THERE BE HORNS
It’s a good day, let’s get grimy.
Be well world.
I haven’t posted 2 back to back blogs in awhile but with the bombardment of what’s happened today and the fear that these’ll be taken down QUICK, I’m on it.
WAYNE & EM
Weezy F‘s been beggin King Marshall to tandem with him for a few years now and up until a couple months ago, I thought Forever was gonna be the only time we heard either of them working together on any legitimate level.
Fast forward to today, and all the rumors have now been confirmed. Em’s on Wayne’s upcoming ‘Rebirth’ and well….I’ll let you decide. Let’s just say, I could’ve already put up 3 other tracks from Rebirth but decided that I’d rather go listen to traffic instead. But this….click before the take down.
SLUM & LIB
For the first time since J-88, Dilla’s boys link up with his Jaylib counterpart to create something reminiscent of those Fantastic days.
Baatin tears this. I’m all smiles. R.I.P.
EXILE + J.MITCHELL
Some of you might not be familiar with Exile.
Easily one of the leaders of the new class of dope producers, Exile, the one responsible for the now cult classic, Below the Heavens that he did with fellow westcoaster, and also a leader in his own right, Blu, has been pumping out dope track after dope track for quite some time now. I was first put on his ish when my homie J$Money pointed me towards his Dirty Science LP that he dropped in ’06. Featuring guest spots from Slum Village, Blu, Ghostface, Aloe Blacc and more, his first solo effort was truly something to behold. Now, 3 years and 4 collaborative records later, his skills are sharper, his clout is heavier and his tunes are just as diverse as ever. Off his sophomore Radio from earlier this year, I give you a chill track for anyone who needs a little sun during these winter months.
Get’em before it’s too late!
When I first did the original ‘Pair Up’ blog, I never meant to continue it as any sort of ongoing series within the HHHT realm. However, after seeing the rash of recent pair-ups and duets that definitely deserve their honorable mentions, I say, let’s roll with this and see if there’s another Black Star or a Ghost & Rae or a Omarion & Bow Wow in the making.
Wait a minute…..scratch that last one….
Who likes acronyyyyms? D.I.T.C.? That’s always been a favorite of mine. How bout we get a little deeper into it and break out A.G. and O.C.
Yessir. You heard me right. East Coast legends Omar Credle and Andre the Giant, better known as O.C. & A.G. have gone ahead and finally put this classic D.I.T.C. what if? scenario to bed and are slated to release THE OASIS November 24th on Nature Sounds (home of Masta Killa, the Ghost & DOOM project, and oodles more).
If this tune is any indication of how the album’ll turn out, I’m there. I swear to you, neither of them have even come close to losing a step and believe me when I say A.G. keeps getting better and better and better…(See his guest appearance on Dabrye‘s Two/Three)
It’s coming sooooon.
As I reported a couple months ago, Stones Throw frontliners Madlib & Guilty Simpson will be teaming up to release the highly anticipated O.J. Simpson record either last quarter ’09 or first quarter ’10. Madlib, who has cemented the fact that he has one of the best batting averages for beats ever, matched with Guilty, who’s punchline onslaught can only be compared to an E. Honda attack, will undoubtedly result in something so raw it would be O.D.B. approved. Don’t believe me? Check the freebee. GOOD GAWD I love these guys.
FIF & MAC
Don’t really need to write all that much about this. Beans is goin at Jay and 50‘s making sure he’s right in the middle of it…as usual.
If Jay eventually decides to respond though, this’ll get hella entertaining. Beans is not only a beast, but this could get extremely personal extremely quick. Do I smell a Pay-Per-View? Y’know 50 probably already has it in the works.
And as an added treat, Part 2 of the Wu-Massacre trailers. Enjoy.
I have a backlog of amazing stuff I wanna throw up so don’t be alarmed if I just randomly start posting MPFrees.
Be well world.
Enjoy the weekend.
HHHTime for some akshun,
Today’s post is for people who like Rap. Period. That’s it. You like bars? You like flows? You like lyrics that make you go ooooh? Then this is for you. If you said no to any of these questions, leave now.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to post this ish yesterday exactly one minute after it was posted! Unfortunately my code-illiterate ass just couldn’t get it to embed. Thankfully, as expected, someone Youtube‘d it and we’re back in business.
Yesterday the annual shamefest known as the BET hip-hop awards took place and well, as expected, it was a useless piece of goonery crap that only helped to ensure that those who don’t like hip-hop stay hating. That being said, this award show has provided us with 1 good thing every year and it’s those damn (Rap nerd wet dreams – ‘What if…’) Cyphers. Last years dopest cypher featured Juelz Santana, Fabolous, Ace Hood (Who surprisingly rocked it even though he can’t write a song worth his life) and Jadakiss running a mean anchor. Well, I’m happy to say that this years top cypher nearly made me wet myself. And if it doesn’t make you at least kegal a couple dozen times, then you lied about one of the above questions.
No more talkin. RAP! This one’s gonna have people arguin for a while….
The other 2 cyphers (that were decent, but nowhere near the one above) can be found below:
Cypher #3 ft. Nicki Minaj, Buckshot, Crown Royyal & Joe Budden (Budden’s a problem!)
A & E
It seems like the thing to do these days for rappers in their mid-30’s is to find another rapper in their mid-30’s who roughly holds the same stature and combine to make a group. Canibus and Keith Murray. Del the Funky Homosapien and Tame One. DJ Quik and Kurupt. And even though it would seem like all of these would be dope, or at very least entertaining, only the Quik and Kurupt really popped for me (and I’m a Del fan to the core). Well we have another pairing for you and this time, it might just work out. 2 people that have influenced a LOT of your favorite rappers but rarely ever get their mention, ladies and gents, I give you A & E (a.k.a. Masta Ace and Edo G.)
**sidenote — for all you Eminem fans, if you didn’t realize that Em started as a Masta Ace clone you better go do your research. Em’s even copped to it himself.**
MASTA ACE & EDO. G – EI8HT IS ENOUGH
BLAKROC EPISODE #2 ft. Mos Def
We proceed with part 2. Mos hits the studio and the world implodes.
HIP HOP HISTORY w/ RAKIM
An interview 24/7 Hip Hop did with the Teflon Don breaking down the significance of the number 7 in his life, his falling out with Eric B., and a wild story involving Kool G. Rap getting snuffed and Eric B. riding a sheep skin.
No MPFrees? Now how could I do that to you. This one’s for the CAPtain to get his blood pumpin.
