King Tee The Great

Monday, February 15th, 2010


I shouldn’t have to sell you on King Tees greatness. In my book he is one of the most underrated emcees of all-time. When I think of real O.G.’s Tee is one of the first names that comes to mind. Along with the likes of MC Ren, King Tee kills most of the guest spots he gets. To give you a better idea here are two compilations filled with King Tee collabos from 1988-2009. For bonus tracks make sure you check out the great T.R.O.Y. forum where everyday is like Christmas.

Take a moment to thank Paul Smith for taking the time in putting these great compilations together. –Philaflava

dirt_dog Remix Pack 4

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

Of all the remix packs, this is one of my favorites… The Soul Assassins edition. I’ll confess that the second track was not taken from a cd single. But it was a Lighter Shade Of Brown CD5 that led me to their album that had this remix as a bonus track. I felt it was 100% necessary to include some other DJ Muggs work from 1992. And I couldn’t help but sneak in the U2 track as an obscure off-beat treat. Nothing mind-blowing, but a chance to hear something out of the hip-hop world. If you missed Remix Packs 1, 2 or 3 click HERE.


Remix Pack 4
01 Funkdoobiest-Funkdoobiest-The Funkiest (Lethal Dose Remix)
02 A Lighter Shade Of Brown-Spill The Wine (D.J. Muggs Remix)

04 Beastie Boys-So What’cha Want (Soul Assassin Remix Version) feat. B Real

Sick Soldiers (Sick Jacken)

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

At first sight Sick Jacken is this taller than tall, scary muthafucka, standing their like a wall. But then he starts rapping with amazing versatility and speed. His verbal agility is beyond what you would ever expect from his build. The solidness is still there, supporting the lyrics that are all laced with conspiracy theories and deep historical teachings. You now know that you can’t fuck with him physically, nor mentally. Even spiritually, when him and Muggs did the album “The Legend of The Mask and the Assassin”, he deals with death like a game of chess. And, he wins every time. But we are missing the fourth aspect of life. Emotion.

Sick Jacken’s emotions are what is making his non stop army go forward with blind strength.

Him and his brother, Duke, were heard by Cypress Hill’s B-Real at a local live show, and destiny united the three as MCs of the group Pyscho Realm. They put out the insanely dark album “The Psycho Realm” in 97. Due to their firm convictions and ethics, the brothers had to leave B-Real and the record label and work for themselves.

“the machine was just trying to censor me / Didn’t do it for Sony so they ended up releasing me / Independent, no longer locked down for an infinity / So my vicinity stays true to my identity.”

They continued to rock the underground, political -or rather social revolutionary, scenes of the world. However this only lasted until there was a major loss in the ranks. Big Duke got into a scuffle one night, where he bravely stood up to two faggots who then pulled guns and tipped the scales of justice by firing and lodging a lead tip into Duke’s neck, between the L and the O of his Los Angeles tattoo, paralyzing him from the neck down. And although he survived, he would not be able to contribute to future projects. Good thing that they had managed to record vocals for their third album, the follow up to “War Story Book I”, “War Story Book II”.


Big Duke

We big Psycho Realm fans lost an important artist with a very unique rhyme style. So Sick Jacken never replaced his brother, but instead networked out into the World Wide Underground Hip Hop scene and has since rapped with RBX, Coka Nostra, Snow Goons, Strong Arm Steady, Evidence, Cormega, Immortal Technique, Swollen Members, Ill Bill and is now an artist on Mugg’s Soul Assassins .

Along with his Sick Symphonies crew, Sick Jacken kept pushing product on the streets of the Pico-Union area of downtown Los Angeles. Home to the infamous Rampart division of the L.A.P.D. After the record label put out another group, Street Platoon, they must have liked working together because the next was “Psycho Realm And Street Platoon Present Sick Symphonies”. Platoon’s MC’s Crow and Cynic both appear on Jacken’s songs, but Cynic is many more, and even making a video for a his track “World We’re In” on Mugg’s last album, “Intermission”. His DJ FM is also a major addition. His masked face is intimidation enough, but that spinning skull on his turntables, plus the fact that he jumps around like the cartoon version of the Joker only add to the lunatic live show they put on.


I have to mention one very important fact to Jacken’s career. His mystical lyrics definitely attract people to his persona and to his side as a Sick Soldier. When I went to a Rock the Bells concert a few years back, the one where Wu Tang was going to play for the first tie together since ODB’s death, Pyscho Realm showed up for a few live songs earlier in the afternoon. It was crazy to see the amount of people throwin up the LA sign’s for them and how many kids were rockin’ Sick Soldier/Sick Symphony wear. I still think there were more people in Cali that day for Pyscho Realm than Wu Stans. The amount of fans that they have are ridiculously underestimated. They play live all over the world and constantly sell out the shows.

Now before I finish this post up, I gotta “dry snitch”. I got two exclusives: I have confirmed a piece of info that I got straight from Sick Jacken’s twitter update: ..New Psycho Realm album coming soon. Jacken, B-Real and Duke..

And while confirming that, I was also told that Jacken and MURS are in the studio banging out some hiphop classics that should come out early 2010 on new technological discs called “Holodiscs”, where you can see them live and on your desk in a holographic form. OK, I invented the last part, but sheeeit. That’s still good news from the T.R.O.Y. to you!!

Download this sampler: T.R.O.Y’s SICK COMPILATION, it includes two songs from every album by Psycho Realm or Sick Jacken.

Fifty Remixes You Need To Hear (21-30)

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

21. Fat Joe ft. Grand Puba and Diamond D. “Watch The Sound” (Beatnuts Remix)
22. Nas “The World Is Yours” (Q-Tip Remix)
23. Ol’ Dirty Bastard “Brooklyn Zoo” (Digga Remix)
A phenomenal remixed version of this ODB classic. Produced by the one and only Lord Digga. Search our archives for a 2CD set of Digga productions.
24.a Kool G. Rap ft. Nas “Fast Life” (Norfside Remix)
24.b Kool G. Rap ft. Nas “Fast Life” (Vinyl Reanimators Remix)
25. Gangstarr “Gotta Get Over” (Large Pro Remix)
On this remix, Large Professor shows us what you can accomplish with a simple yet filthy bassline. Sometimes less is more.
26. OC “Word … Life” (DJ Celory Remix)
27. J-Live “Braggin’ Writes” (Domecracker Remix)
28. Dr. Octagon “Blue Flowers” (Prince Paul Remix)
Dan The Automator’s version is one of the creepiest, unsettling, beautiful rap instrumentals ever. No stranger to eccentric mind-fuckery on wax, Prince Paul manages to craft a version every bit as eerie and absurd, for the win.
29. GZA ft. Inspektah Deck and D’Angelo “Cold World” (RZA Remix)
If you’re looking for a track this X-mas to help you gain weight and abuse smack like it’s featured guest, then check out the Cold World remix featuring D’Angelo. His haunting crooning of the chorus gives it an even more ominous feel than the original, complimented perfectly by a few subtle tweaks in the beat by RZA.
30. Cypress Hill ft. Redman, Erick Sermon, MC Eiht “Throw Your Set In The Air” (Remix)
