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.

A Broadcast Of Violence, Fear Of Death, And Etc (A Memphis Rap Mix By Jacques Gaspard Biberkopf)

“Broadcast of violence, fear of death, and etc.”

So Jacques Gaspard Biberkopf did this mix for the Fresh Out The Box show (on BBox Radio), where I occasionally guest. The mix had no tracklist, and was accompanied only by the quote above. While the mix was playing, the show’s hosts and I sat and gaped at each other in amazement – the set this guy put together is fucking incredible.
I wouldn’t claim myself an expert on Memphis obscurities, far from it, but I’ve heard a few things. My companions were at about the same level of expertise. And yet, a lot most (let’s be honest) of the songs here were unknown to us, and not a single one of them was bad. Several inspired bouts of furious googling, to no effect.
I don’t know where Jacques found this stuff. I don’t actually know anything about Jacques at all. But the mad put together a great mixtape and you should listen to it immediately.

G-Side return to Fresh Out The Box radio to match wits with budding Harlemite talents of Mummz and Boog Nice over exclusive never before heard Block Beattaz productions. For the record, Boog had the line of the night with “Chop up the grams in my man’s basement. Chop up ya mans in my gram’s basement.” Part 1 of this 20 minute cypher is above, part 2 is below. Waaaaay below is a link to stream the entire episode of FOTB this was taken from, with complete track list.

Our friends at Purple Tape Pedigree run a bitchin rap radio show called Fresh Out The Box, which happens every Thursday via BBOX radio. I had the honor of guesting on two few episodes so far, here is my most recent appearance. Lots of good music was played, year-end lists and fine meats and cheeses were discussed, and we randomly drank some wine from plastic cups. You should give it a listen, and don’t sleep on their other episodes, especially the XMAS one. I will be returning there again tonight, so listen to that too.
