Episode 9 might be titled the Calm Before The Storm, but it’s anything but. Our next show will be a DJ Premier tribute, so we wanted to take a short break from the tributes and get back to the traditional potpourri show. Special guest, Aaron Wade, sat in with us as we discussed and dissed each other’s Hip-Hop Mount Rushmore. We also announced the winner of our Evolution of The B-Boy Sticker pack contest and play some ridiculously dope music from Mobb Deep, Jeru The Damaja, Brand Nubian, Kool G. Rap, Gang Starr, Ice Cube, Das EFX, People Under The Stairs, Insight, J-Zone and Supastition. Plus, we threw in some new jawns by King Magnetic, Kendrick Lamar and a special K-Def/DJ 360 Beneficence remix. So, while you’re listening. think of who you’d put on your Mount Rushmore and then share your picks with us in the comment section. RIP Don Rickles!

Atmosphere – My Best Half

Outta nowhere comes a brand new Atmosphere song. We all have a better half, it’s just that some of them are absolutely insane for one week out of each month. All we want is some love and in return we just get the big piece of chicken. Peep the new joint and happy and healthy New Years to all of you. –Philaflava

MIXTAPE: White Gzus – Stackin N Mackin Vol. 3

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Volume 2 is one of my favorite mixtapes of the year and I’m still undecided if Volume 3 tops it (it’s very much a contender). 3 may have the edge by sounding more polished. It feels almost like an album, more focused and better executed than the last installment. Granted, this is a more of an instinctive call than a proper assessment. But listen to the sequence of tracks 11-14 on here (my favorite part), and consider that stretch in the context of this mixtape series as a process of refinement for the group’s aesthetic and sound. This is where they really get their optimal configuration just right.

White Gzus – Foe The Summer (Prod By Mr E)

Back to a breezy sound after flirting with a bit harder edge on the previous 2 singles. Stackin N’ Mackin 3 needs to come out already, it feels like they’ve leaked half of it through the singles by now. But the quality holds with every track so no complaints really.

New track from White Gzus, a group who’s last mixtape I discovered not too long ago and still play the shit out of.
