I purposely waited for the album & mixtape to drop before putting this up, there were alot of tributes but NONE can ever compare to mines. Heres the 2hr Tribute I did, no Tracklisting, Enjoy the music for what it is. , If you take this mix and try to sell it in any way shape or form, you will get sued! I miss you P. Love u brother
 
PF Cuttin

 
A really great tribute mix of rarities and new stuff from Sean Price’s close friend and long-time collaborator (he did the pre-Monkey Barz Donkey Sean Jr mixtape, all the way back in 2003). This mix was briefly up on Cuttin’s Mixlr page, but as Cuttin mentions above it was removed to allow more attention for the the newly released Songs In The Key Price mixtape and EP. Now the mix is back up, hopefully for good because it’s likely the best Sean P tribute mix out there.

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.

STREAM: Ron G – Harlem World 155th Street (1998ish?)

I found this via First Name Ralph, a great eponymous blog which has a wealth of awesome 90s mixtapes up for streaming. I went to this particular tape first because I was specifically looking for something by Ron G (I was in the mood for some blends). Judging by the tracklist this tape was likely put together sometime in 98ish, or somewhere thereabout. A good range of rap from that period is represented, you get big crossover singles and Tunnel bangers and some indie but still street-oriented rapping ass rapping, all mixed and blended in Ron G’s trademark style.
 
Ralph himself provides some interesting details about what’s included on the tape in his original post HERE. For more on Ron G, you should definitely read Stan Ipcus’ very informative interview with the man over at Nah Right.

Nothing much to say except that Beatking has been consistently dope over his last several tapes and this one is sounding good so far as well.
 

 

MIX: Gila Monsta – HD DJ MODE GILA SUMMER MIX 2015 XL

New mix from Gila, the behind-the-boards half of the trench coat-rocking broken champagne bottle-wielding rap duo Gorgeous Children. There’s no tracklist available due to inclusion of super sexy secret tracks that don’t even have names yet, but there is Maxo Kream and Gucci Mane and new Gorgeous Children material on here, plus other good rap, all spliced together with some icey electronics and gravely textures… so what the fuck else do you even need to know.
 
The mix was originally premiered on Fresh Out The Box radio last night.

The original version of Maxo 187 is one of my favorites from this year, so this is most welcome.
