A Bunch of Niggas

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

It’s crazy that 3 outta 6 rappers featured on “A Bunch of Niggas” are no longer with us. RIP Heavy D, Biggie & Guru.

Heavy D – A Bunch Of Niggas feat. 3rd Eye, Biggie Smalls, Busta Rhymes, Guru & Rob O (prod. Jesse West)

Another Heavy D, Biggie & Pac collabo, again 3 gone. Easily the one of the best collabs that ever featured these greats.

DJ Nu-Mark’s Vinyl Collection (Crate Diggers on fuse TV)

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

I’ve been a fan of Nu-Mark since the days of Jurassic 5. He’s done a bunch of great solo work and mixes over the years, but I was really into him last year when he was releasing all the singles leading up to his Broken Sunlight album. Thanks King!

Friday, July 27th, 2012

One time TROY contributor Beat Bop Scholoar hit us with a new blend last night.

“Type of joint you would of seen on a 90’s NY Mixtape. I mixed Shook Ones with Da Youngsta’s I’ll Make You Famous instrumental. Share your thoughts/likes… Spread it! I know Shook Ones had been done to death but I wanted to do this cause I had a feeling it would come out dope!”

Demo: Half A Mill – Fast Money & Foreign Objects

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Download the mp3 here where I did my best to fix the sound quality a bit.

Hahaa… Yet another raw as all hell Half A Mill demo has surfaced and I remember loving this one upon first listen years ago. And again, straight off a WNYU radio show rip and most likely from that ever so elusive 1995 Half A Mill demo tape. In this era of unreleased material getting pressed up, this one is at the top of a lot of our lists and has been for quite a while. I wish someone would get on that already, I mean, what better time?

And make no mistake, this is indeed one of Half A Mill’s greatest joints, in my opinion ((A lot of people highly rate Half A Mill’s two “official” LPs but I honestly don’t. After hearing some of these demos, his first 12″, and all those freestyles from WNYU, those albums were straight doo doo in comparison, aside from a few joints on each one. My opinion, that’s all. )). (more…)
