DJ Skipmode & The Illvibe Collective “The Best Of The Native Tongues Mixtape v1”

If I had any DJing abilities, this is exactly the kind of mix I’d love to make. But since I don’t, may I present to you… DJ Skipmode & The Illvibe Collective “The Best Of The Native Tongues Mixtape v1.” It’s a perfect mix from beginning to end, covering all the bases from the Native Tongues posse. The mix was labeled as 2004, but I can’t find any information about it. If you know anything about this one, please leave me a comment. And if you like to make a donation to DJ Skipmode (and get a free cd) hit him up HERE. Or if you’re in the Philly area and want to connect with The Illvibe Collective, go HERE.

Here is a brief bio about The Illvibe Collective, taken from their blog:
“Since its founding in 2000, ILLVIBE COLLECTIVE has been solidifying its eminence as Philadelphias most prolific, well-respected DJ crew. An amalgam of partyrockers and turntablists extraordinaire whose combined experience totals over a half-century, this five-man family, comprised of Statik, Panek, Phillee Blunt, Lil Dave and Skipmode, has been making an indelible mark on the Illadelph music scene, both individually and as a team. Pick your poison: dance floors, mix tapes or radio airwaves, and its guaranteed that ILLVIBE COLLECTIVE will rock em well — with their loyal, worldwide following as co-signers.”

    it starts with too much focus on the Native Tongues House Era…

  2. Kool Max Power says:

    yeah, stenzi stiles is right, i'd be happy without 'monie in the middle' and 'dance for me', but all in all this is a great mix. i always used to love mixtapes with a concept and a skilled dj behind the turntables. props to dirt dog, skipmode & illvibe collective!

  3. Kool Max Power says:

    oh man, when i first listened to this mix i must have been in the toilet during shitty tracks 7 to 9 – that's some annoying house shit i don't need when i wanna listen to a native tongues mix. plus what's the story behind lons and common being affiliated to the nt movement? nevertheless this mix is nice!

    They rapped with them.

    illvibe son! all day! real dj's and classic mix!!!

  6. Music Lover says:

    I feel like all the eras of the Native Tongues were covered perfectly. Those queen latifah joints were club classics and often get overlooked when most people talk about this crew. Also Common and LONS were affiliated. Makes sense to me.
