DJ Premier Tribute Show (2 Parts)

Episode 10, The DJ Premier Tribute, is our magnum opus. It’s only right: the greatest producer of all-time receives the greatest tribute of all-time. It was no easy feat selecting and sequencing tracks for this massive 380+ minute show. We hope after listening to the incredible Work of Mart homage, you’ll agree, DJ Premier is the GOAT. We’ve broken Episode 10 into 2 parts because when you cover Premo’s illustrious career, it’s impossible to include every masterpiece in just one show. But don’t worry- within both episodes, we’ve made sure to include all the ill-collabos, obscure remixes and of course, your favorite classics too! –Philaflava

Despite my enduring hate for most things Kanye West, Flashing Lights might be my favorite cover BBNG have done yet.

Very nice little comp by Hip Hop Is Read. Ivan apparently shares my opinion regarding Kanye doing some of his best work with Cam, props and thanks to him for putting this together.

A good little primer to set up the Compton rapper’s Red Album release today. If you’re unfamiliar with Game’s music or are one of the stubbron heads who still don’t rate him as a rapper, check it out. Best ear for beats around or just a beneficiary of circumstance? Shouts to Dirt Dog for the artwork. Download link and tracklist after the jump.

Directed, edited and photographed by Robert Lopuski, it features shots of recording & listening sessions in Australia, general brainstorms and throwback visuals of Kanye before the hype. Collectors can check out the doc in a downloadable avi file right here.

Regrettable Rap Purchases

With Christmas just around the corner, this is the time of year I like to pretend I have more of a disposable income.  Usually I’ll spend some extra dough on family and friends, but chances are the price tag won’t put a hole in my wallet and I won’t suffer any serious consequences as a result.  If I had a larger bank account, I’d probably end up buying dumb, expensive gifts for everyone, because that seems like the thing to do if you’ve got cash.  That being said, I’d be interested to see a report on rapper gift-giving for the holiday season, Brother Ali and The Beastie Boys excluded, based on what some of them buy throughout the year.  Rappers buy some really dumb shit…

Drugs

You know what I love?  Sprite.  And Jolly Ranchers.  And cough syrup if I’m feeling congested.  All three at once, I’m not so sure.  What do you think DJ Screw?  Big Moe?  Fine, don’t answer me, see if I care.  Pimp C?  No response.  I guess it must be that sleep apnea acting up again.  As much fun as it is to stumble out of the dentist’s office and listen to the batteries die in my walkman, it’s only fun in moderation.  Even then, I’m not exactly cheating death when I get my wisdom teeth removed.  I don’t understand the appeal of purple drank on a weekly (nightly?) basis, and I especially don’t understand the appeal of dying in my sleep from sippin’ on syzzurp.  Paying to die in my sleep is definitely not in my favorite past-times.
