Not that I’m opposed to a little music thievery every day once in a while, but I’m more inclined to post the stuff that artists release themselves for free. Here are a couple blue light specials from the past week or so.


No homo? So homo. Cameron Giles drops new mixtape hosted by the always-annoying DJ Drama. I fucking hate DJ drops, and Drama nearly ruins everything he touches by overdoing it to the Nth degree. Regardless, Cam is his usual shallow self, but comes through on the entertainment tip. KILLA.

DJ Drama presents Cam’ron – Boss of All Bosses 2


Speaking of mindless-yet-entertaining lyrical drivel, Diplo (who is rolling through Taipei this Thursday night) and his comrades at Mad Decent have recycled some of Radric’s most poignant hilarious lyrics from his Cold War mixtape series for a hipster-hop fan’s wet dream. Hate aside, this joint actually produced an enjoyably fresh sound. Too bad there is no WI-FI in the big house. Cold in that cell, Guc? BRRR!

Under the Radar

Besides being on Hov’s dick like a pair of Hanes boxers-briefs, Elliot Wilson a.k.a. YN and his protege B. Dot have done a good job over at RapRadar since opening their doors domain in early ’09. Now, they have teamed with DJ Soul and collected breaks and samples from some of 2009’s biggest hip-hop records for the site’s first official mixtape release. For follow loop diggers our there, this is a good look.

DJ Soul X RR – No Idea’s Original

Nu Wu

Unmatched consistency. “Like the drugs that Hendrix was on.” Four of the finest horsemen: The Chef, Pretty Tone, Golden Arms, Iron Lung. Pardon the quality.

Wu-Tang – “Clap 2010”
(Right-Click, “Save Target As…”)

Admittedly haven’t copped this one myself. This guy Elite is responsible for some of the best production from President Carter co-signee and Roc Nation employee J. Cole. Mostly (all?) instrumental. I’ve read good things. See for yourself.

That is all.
