Club Bangers mech

Let’s all celebrate the end of 2008 with some club-banging remixes courtesy of the Disco Villains.

50 Cent - In Da Club (Disco Villains Remix)

Trouble Coming

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Word is that back in the day the CIA distributed a booklet to Nicaraguan citizens about how to upset the government. You can check it out here, or look at some pictures from it below.

These totally make me want to start bringing a dry, compressed sponge to parties.

I also like the idea that a government can be toppled with false hotel reservations.

On a related note, Taliesin is distributing a pretty wicked mix that I’m sure will upset someone. (I guess he’s part of Dutty Artz, whatever that means). Full track list is below.

Big Knockouts and Brutal Violence

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

I added that picture of BJ Penn turning Joe Stevenson into a murder scene because The Persian Prince sent me a couple of tracks and wrote me an email about MMA last week:

“Remember when we used to spend an inordinate amount of time watching big knockouts? Perhaps the most satisfying of which was watching over-rated Kimbo Slice getting his ass handed to him in 14 seconds from a washed up ex-UFC fighter. Not sure whether he loves big knockouts as much as us, but Praverb references the aforementioned KO in this new track, “Blessed with the Gift”, produced by Teddy Roxpin.

I don’t much care for Kanye the rapper (let alone Kanye the robo-voice singer)….but Kanye the producer?  Pretty much never misses.  Case in point: the new Jay-Z track with the fantastic Santogold sample.”

Praverb - Blessed with the Gift

Jay-Z - Brooklyn Go Hard

I love Penn because he’s from HI, and I’m stoked to see him and GSP go at it in January.

Body Rollin’

Friday, December 12th, 2008

I didn’t know what Body Rollin’ was until I saw this video, and now I can’t stop thinking about it.

This new Crookers vid also has some good body-rollin’ action

Thanks to First Up and Trash Menagerie for the vids.

More White Collar Hip-Hop

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

From the photocopy room to the server room, this shiznit is taking over.

Check out more white collar beats here and here.

Ze Freaszy German Hip-Hop

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Check out this wicked vid about Hip-Hop in the former communist East Germany (via Hurt You Bad) then listen to Li’l Kim “put it down in German” by covering Biggie’s Hypnotize with some German fella at her side.

“My first diary notes ‘84: I am really making progress doing the electric boogie.”

You cannot make that shit up. Nor can you make up the name for themselves: Automatic Freaszy Crew. Even they admit that ‘freaszy’ isn’t a word.

Expect to see it a lot in upcoming posts from 199X.

Lil Kim (TOMEKK and Trooper) - KIMNOTYZE

Interdimensional Demon Ninja

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

I don’t care what the official Tekken back story about him is, but there is no doubt in my mind that Yoshimitsu is an interdimensional demon ninja. Just look at his face - that isn’t human. And the way he disappears and reapers means that he must be messing around with some crazy space-time shit.

Anyways, we’re super into ninjas these days (and I’m not talking about the bullshit pirates-versus-ninjas stuff), so expect to see some more posts along the same lines coming up.

In the meantime, have a listen to this great track about ninjas that I downloaded from the inconsistently-awesome Rhyme Torrents.

Lifeseeker - Like A Ninja

Bonus points to Lifeseeker for being included in the game Dead Rising, and for the line “I hope you like the cake/ by the way it’s poisoned.”

The Persian Prince Hooks Us Up

Monday, October 27th, 2008

I hadn’t heard from the Persian Prince in a while, but then I found the picture (from Mardi Noir) above in the latest issue of AIR WAR MAGAZINE. If you know the Prince as well as I do, you’ll check out the mag and see why it reminds me of him.

The same day, I got a message from him on Facebook telling me to check out The Hood Internet:

“The most recent playlist is pretty good set up of mashups….they have all the songs individually available for download if you only like some of them….but i really like the the first R Kelly one…”

R. Kelly feat. Huey vs. Rogue Wave - Hook it Up (via The Hood Internet)

Haute-Couture Ice Cream?

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

As a follow up to our earlier post about Pharrell, check out the video he made to promote the line of opulent jewelery he made with Louis Vuitton under the name Blason:

We Heart Stuff calls the line of bling “over-the-top” and “distasteful.” That’s kinda makes me want it more.

Also check out the Coco Rosie/Prada video that we covered earlier.

Life On Maui

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

I’ve only been here for 24 hours and I already I’ve had 3 pretty decent surf sessions and eaten 4 fish tacos. Plus, I’ve been listening to the island’s hottest radio station: Da Jam 98.3. They pretty much play the week’s top R&B/Hip-hop songs a couple of times an hour.

One song they’ve been playing lately that I can’t get out of my head is this one:

Bobby Valentino & Li’l Wayne - Mrs. Officer

In the word’s of the Mix Tape Maestro:

“Does it instantly register as one of the reasons why (Lil’ Wayne’s album) will go down as the classic album it’s been tirelessly predicted to be? Not necessarily, but the next time someone utters the line “fuck the police”, NWA’s rivalry with the FBI probably won’t be the only thing that crosses one’s mind anymore.”
