Tru Comers: Vaporized Blends

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

A brand new vaporized blend project. Don’t sleep.

In case you’re not familiar with Tru Comers (aka Sperrow and X-Pert) they’re a Swiss production crew, but their sound is pure mid 90s NYC boom-bap rawness.

Hopefully I’ve managed to do some justice to their 2011 instrumental EP with these blends.

Props to Verge and dirt_dog for going out of their way to help put this together, and to Tru Comers for giving this project the all clear… Enjoy

Bad Cop – No Gimmicks Rap Shit (1-6)

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010


Synopsis: 6 part mixtape with 62 independent and underground hiphop cuts from the 90’s, including unreleased tracks from Natural Elements, Foul Play and Verbal Hoods. All tracks non-stop mixed, split with trackmarks and tagged with track information.

–and to all you Serato haters, vinyl were used everywhere, except from the unreleased tracks!

Unreleased Tracks:
Natural Elements – I Got Your Heart: Best rip out there upped by nythugism on the TROY forum.

Mister Voo – Return Of The 45 (Relax Your Mind) *Taken from the leaked Tommy Boy CD from 1999, widely available online.

Foul Play – Boo Yah: DAT rip fully mastered, not the hissy version from WKCR.

Foul Play – Nightfall (Demo): Different from the one available on Cocaine Blunts, punshier beat and different vocals. Guarantee you won’t have heard this one before!

Foul Play – Black Clouds (Demo): Full rip of the demo version, not the one of Wild Pitch Blends. This is the same version that was played on WKCR, but better quality.

Verbal Hoods – I’ll Be Damned: Taken from the 5 Deadly Venoms CD, but I’ve edited the last chorus to make it clean from other cuts.

Sway & Tech – Wake up Show Unreleased Project (CD)

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Sway & King Tech’s Wake Up Show Unreleased Project is a compilation of rare tracks by Noggin’ Nodder, Chino XL, Steve Def, & The Bums and it has King Tech remixes of D’Angelo, Rakim, & The Pharcyde. The last track on the album is possibly the greatest radio promo of all-time, the 1994 Wake Up Show Anthem with Nas, Organized Konfusion, Ras Kass, Saafir, Shyheim, Dred Scott, & Lauryn Hill. Noggin’ Nodder is now known as Motion Man.. the track Bounce is a real banger! That Ice Cube sample is crazy and so is the beat produced by Kut Masta Kurt! The rest is fully produced King Tech. I always thought this was a vinyl only release so I was really surprised when I found this cd! A great pickup!

Fifty Remixes You Need To Hear (41-50)

Friday, January 9th, 2009

Today we present the final installment of the series. We hope that you were introduced to music that is new and beautiful to your ears. Be sure to check out Selections 1-10, Selections 11-20, Selections 21-30, and Selections 31-40 as well.

41. Lord Finesse “Hip 2 Da Game” (Buckwild Remix)

The original was a near-perfect quintessential Lord Finesse production. Somehow, some way Buckwild managed to improve upon it, matching the grandiosity of Finesse’s boasts with lush, sweeping music.
42. Tragedy “Funk Mode” (Large Pro Remix)

43. Brand Nubian “Concerto In X Minor” (Remix)
“On the real-tip let’s take a field trip from the ghetto / You pick the time and we’ll meet in the meadow/ To discuss racial issues and tension/ New York’s a violent keg did I forget to mention…”
44. Lord Finesse ft. Big L “Yes You May” (Remix)
AG and Percee-P are replaced by Big L and a drum heavy beat. L spits non-stop quotables and Finesse displays his mastery of similes and unabashed shit talking.
45a. Common Sense “Resurrection” (Extra P Remix)
45b. Common Sense “Resurrection (Large Pro Remix)
46. Chino XL “Kreep” (Video Mix)
47. Beatnuts “No Equal” (Remix)
The original was the greatest vibraphone-laced death threat aimed at Das Efx ever. This remix makes the original sound like the fucking Barney The Dinosaur theme song in comparison.
48. Nice N’ Smooth “Cash In My Hands” (Remix)
49. Pharcyde “Passin’ Me By” (Remix)
50. Public Enemy “How To Kill A Radio Consultant” (Chuck Chillout Remix)

Chino XL Spotlight

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

I always thought that the best freestyles were of the improvisational, pre-written variety. I admire the fact that certain artists can kick some shit off the top without any preparation, but in most cases, I find that it’s not really worth listening to.

Some of my favorite pre-written, improvisational freestyles come from the likes of Tame One, O.C., Ras Kass, Percee P, Craig G, etc, but if I had to choose a favorite, I’d go with Chino XL. I consider Chino to be a legendary MC, but I don’t know if I’d feel that way if not for all of the outstanding freestyles that he blessed us with via the Wake Up Show, Stretch & Bobbito, Hot 97, etc.

Here are some of my favorites. As a bonus, I’m also listing 18 of his best non-album tracks. Enjoy!
