This dropped a little over a week ago, but I though it would be a great fit for the Wu-Weekly theme. A masterfully executed mix of DJ Premier beats and Ghostface vocals, loaded with interludes and kung fu samples. Another great project from Hevehitta & DJ Unexpected.
from The Digger’s Union:
Hevehitta x DJ Unexpected x Ghostface Killah x DJ Premier | Duel of the Iron Fists
Never the types to rest on their laurels, Hevehitta & DJ Unexpected incorporate a new idea into their already diverse catalog. Known as the Mixtaep (the last 2 letters purposely reversed), it will come to be known as a mixtape EP for free download. These will be released occasionally, with various themes accompanying the project. For the first entry, they present “Duel Of The Iron Fists”, starring Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan and DJ Premier, legendary producer and 1/2 of Gangstarr. Continuing with their already infamous “Martial Arts Mixtape” series, this one features Ghostface Killah vocals over DJ Premier beats, with various kung-fu movie samples mixed in. Keeping a firm grip on their motto, “Enjoy And Be Educated”, there are also breakbeat sections for said artists, with original samples presented which would be the foundation for their respective hits. DJ Unexpected has also provided a write-up for the project, detailing the inspirations for each track presented here. Hevehitta & DJ Unexpected would like to thank all of their supporters and the artists involved for the inspiration. Enjoy and be Educated!
You can stream via SoundCloud or download from their site, which also has an in depth track by track description.
