T.R.O.Y. Blog Presents: D.I.T.C. For My Whip [Compilation]

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

This is compilation that i made to listen it while driving in my whip. After i finished it i thought maybe it would be a good idea to share it, some might find it interesting.

Main goal was that tracks must have heavy basses so that i can pump it up loud, shaking the whip. Second, i wanted to put as much as possible Diamond D tracks and featurings which including either his production, heavy basses or heavy lyrics, or all of that three.

You may ask why haven’t i included some tracks from “Word..Life”, well i have that album burned already and i like to listen to it from a to z.

Shorty Long once was affiliated with Lord Fineese, but after that single, he continued working with DJ Mike Smooth, but that track, that beat is sooo hard, making you wanna break something or somebody.

Lord Finesse’s production from 93-96 was so pure, crisp and clear, with heavy bass lines and drums, you just enjoy when you hear that clearness.

So basically those are some of my favorite D.I.T.C. tracks. I wanted to include few more tracks and i know you may ask why you left out this track or that track, but it is how it is, and there wasn’t any more free space on the cd.

**dirt_dog on the cover.

Enjoy!

01. Showbiz & A.G. – Never Less Than Ill
02. Diamond D – Best Kept Secret

Super Saturdays: Posse Cuts (Boot Camp, Shyheim, Chubb Rock, Heavy D & Bas Blasta)

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

If you’re like me, you have a weakness for posse cuts. There is something about the pairing of different emcees together that always sparks my interest. Sometimes the collaborations are immaculate, sometimes in-congruent but many times they’re just flat out intriguing.

Posse Cuts can create careers in just 16 bars. Verses become memorable, some undeniable classics like Kane on The Symphony, Busta on The Scenario or even Prodigy on I Shot Ya (Remix). These records define an era. When an emcee went for theirs. When there was no last-minute editing so you don’t get out shined on your own shit. If you did, you did back then. Friends, favors and fun. That is what made up the posse cuts of the 90s. Whether you were label mates, crew members, weed carriers or just fans of a specific artists you reached out because you wanted to create something, not sell a record.

After the jump are 5 tracks that capture everything that you’d could ever want from posse cut. No these aren’t the greatest of them, some are truly great though. These are 5 unique posse cuts that remind you just how much fun hip-hop can be.  (more…)

Royal Flush & Mic Geronimo – Special Guests at Album Release Shows

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Fat Joe brought out Mic Geronimo to perform “Shit’s Real” live at The Darkness album release party at SOB. Fat Joe also brought out Diamond D, Redman, DJ Premier, Jeru The Damaja, MOP, … he also performed Flow Joe, Success, Firewater, … Seemed like a real good show!
.
Capone-N-Noreaga had Royal Flush to come out and perform “Iced Down Medallions” live at their album release party. Noreaga did the chorus like in the original.
I just wanted to share these two videos as I felt that it must of been a long time since they had performed these classics. Much love to Fat Joe and CNN for making it happen!

Ego Trip’s Great Fuckin’ Clean Versions

Monday, February 8th, 2010


“This one definitely goes out on a censorship tip
So everybody sit back, relax and have a champagne sip”


None of us like clean radio versions! Every time your hear something, it’s always gotta be raw uncensored! That’s the truth! Some artists just have their curse words bleeped on for their clean versions while other actually record a new version with changed vocals. Some don’t have new vocals but instead of it just being muted, scratching and sound effects are used to replace these blanks. A list titled “Great Fuckin’ Clean Versions” from Ego Trip’s Book of Rap List basically listed the clean versions that were worth listening to. Like Thun said, “Ego Trip made it a hot list, we made it a hot compilation“. Last year, I compiled DJ Premier’s Underacknowledged Cuts from Ego Trip’s list. It received props all over the net.. even from Elliot Wilson! Enjoy this one!

Starting out with Lakim Shabazz on 45 King’s Rhythmical Madness in 1989. Following with four appearances on the Flavor Unit album in 1990. In 1991, he’s on Naughty By Nature & Double J‘s album. In 1993, for his 12″s cuts, he receives production from A Tribe Called Quest(Q. Tip), Large Professor, and The 45 King. For his guest appearances in 1993, he’s with Fat Joe & Kool G Rap, and 2Pac(R.I.P), Treach, & The Live Squad(Stretch R.I.P). He would also write some of Latifah’s lyrics. Apache had an incredible music collection.

Step One “Illegal Remixes Vol. 1” (2010)

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

It appears that good things can happen when the UK gets blasted with the heaviest snow in 100 years. With the country coming to a complete halt, forum regular Step One had time to put together this sweet compilation of bootleg remixes and blends. Show some appreciation by leaving a comment (or a link to another remix) and he might bless us with volume 2.

Step One says “A staple of any nineties Hip Hop DJ’s collection is the shady white label remix. Information on whoever was putting these out was usually pretty thin on the ground for obvious reasons but they often held some real gems. Having rediscovered some of these recently I’ve put together a collection of some of those unofficial remixes as well as a few that I’ve found on the blogs and forums over the last few years.”

01 2Pac-Old School (B.Cause Remix)
http://diamondsinthedust.blogspot.com/
Usually the non-Pac fans favourite Pac track. B Cause throws some familiar samples under Pac’s reminiscing of 80s NY and gives it a nice funky vibe.

02 Big Daddy Kane-Set It Off (Daily Diggers Remix)
http://www.dailydiggers.com/
Some of you might recognise this from DJ Mike Nice’s “Brooklyn Bullshit” mixtape. The UK’s Daily Diggers flip the Cold Chillin classic.

03 Big Pun & Fat Joe-Twinz (Brooklyn Untouched Remix)
This remix discards the original “Deep Cover” beat and replaces it with another Dre & Snoop collabo, “The Next Episode”. Always goes down well in a club set.

04 Common-I Used To Love Her (Sir Charles Flavour Remix)
http://www.myspace.com/djsircharles
Common gets a G-Funk makeover as his vocals are dropped over Warren G’s “Nobody Does It Better”.

05 D&D All-Stars-1,2 Pass It (Bootleg Remix)
A DJ Fashion remix? All signs point to yes.

06 Erick Sermon-Bomdigi (Street Jam Bootleg Remix)
The beat from En Vogue’s “Hold On” gives this E Double solo joint some extra bump.

07 Fat Joe & Doo Wop-Boriquas On The Set (DJ Dough & Porge One Remix)
http://www.myspace.com/djdoughhiphop
The UK’s Dough & Porge One always had some special remixes on their CDs. This one is taken from their “Heads Aint Ready” mix which is well worth seeking out.

08 Method Man & Redman-How High (Bootleg Remix)
The acapella of this track was definitely a favourite amongst producers, probably due to the amount of quotable lines from Red & Meth at their peak. This version uses the “Human Nature” melody over EPMD’s “You’re A Customer” beat.

09 Mobb Deep-Hell On Earth (Paul Miles Remix)
Another UK remix, this time by Birmingham DJ Paul Miles (aka Pat Bateman).

10 Nas-It Aint Hard To Tell (DJ Day Remix)
http://likeathrottle.blogspot.com/ (this also came out on vinyl)
This track has been remixed to death but this has to be the best of the unofficial ones. Quality production from DJ Day out of California.

11 The Pharcyde-Passin Me By (WAR! [What-A-Remix])
A Jazzy Jim remix.

12 Tim Dog & KRS-One-I Get Wrecked (Gamm/Samoo Remix)
http://diamondsinthedust.blogspot.com/
I don’t have any info on this one but I’m pretty sure I copped it at B.Cause’s blog.

13 Uptown-Dope On Plastic (B.Cause Why Zee Refix)
http://diamondsinthedust.blogspot.com/
Uptown meets YZ.

Memory Man Presents Wu-Tang Clan Vs. D.I.T.C.

Saturday, July 4th, 2009


Memory Man Presents Wu-Tang Clan Vs. D.I.T.C.

“This virtual face-off pits two of New York’s most respected and influential crews against each other in an all-out blend war. The focus is on battle rhymes and the groups’ golden era material, but there’s a few exceptions. Split into two continuous parts, the tracks alternate between Wu-Tang MC’s rhyming over D.I.T.C. beats and vice versa. This mix is an attempt to illustrate how evenly matched the Wu-Tang Clan and D.I.T.C. really are/were.“

Wu-Tang Clan Vs. DITC Part 1 (45:30)
Wu-Tang Clan Vs. DITC Part 2 (35:05)

Hopefully, you will all enjoy this mix. Make sure to check out Memory Man here at his Myspace. Drop a comment! It def gets my vote for ‘Mix of the Year’!!
