The Niyat – Recycle Bin (mixtape)

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

This mixtape is presented by FWMJ.

Just listen to it, the natural talent at work is plenty obvious. Sure, the ‘us vs the rap industry’ mentality and subject matter are well tread, but The Niyat sells it with a dedicated unyieldingly angry attitude – these guys actually sound like they take this shit personally, instead of chanting protest against mediocrity as an easy catchall mantra. It also helps that unlike MANY other lyrically intensive rappers this group is very proficient at picking beats, with selections just strong enough to avoid plodding but not so distinct as to take the focus away from the words. The mixing of the project is a bit rough, it never surpasses the feel of being a loose collection of tracks, but then again I don’t think they were trying to make a proper album either. It’s more of an exercise in craft than an artistic statement, and as such it’s tremendously entertaining.

Tracklist with production credits is below the jump.



Nate Dogg – Nobody Does It Better

If Dre was the sound of G-Funk and Snoop was voice, then Nate Dogg was surely the harmony. Tying together lush production and smooth vocals with his rich, raspy melodies, Nate brought a defining quality to the music. Raised as a gospel singer in East Long Beach, he crashed onto the regional scene with his work on Mista Grimm’s “Indo Smoke” and Dr. Dre’s “Lil’ Ghetto Boy,” but it was his appearance alongside Warren G on “Regulate” that pushed him into the national spotlight. When Death Row Records collapsed under it’s own misdeeds, he took his talents from coast to coast, never failing to impress as the go to guy for that Californian vibe whilst giving career defining hits to the likes of Ludacris, Fabolous and 50 Cent. Many have tried to imitate him and some have even tried to snatch the crown as the king of the rap hook, but to no avail. They can come closer than close. Original they never could be.

Birth of a Nation: 4/29/92

Shot from the eye of the hurricane in South Central Los Angeles moments after the Rodney King verdict was announced, Matthew McDaniel’s footage is as raw as it gets. Capturing an open sore, where uprising met opportunism, the documentary is edited into a video nasty melange of sound bites, violent rhetoric and hopeless frustration. However, it’s perhaps more notorious for its sampled use on Dr Dre’s post-King opus The Chronic. “The Day the Niggaz Took Over” and “Lil’ Ghetto Boy” both snatch the soul with a couple of poignant quotes, but to truly experience the sheer anger, it’s best to catch the whole show.
