For some, it doesn’t feel like the holidays until we see our pals John McClain, Kevin McCallister or Ralphie Parker. Episode 3 is our holiday special and its packed with classics from OutKast, Redman, Common, Lord Finesse, Big Pun, Nas, Screwball, The Roots, Mad Skillz, The Beatnuts and L.O.T.U.G., plus new music from The LOX, Snowgoons, Meyhem Lauren and Hus Kingpin & SmooVth. And what’s our show without a little banter? We each discuss/diss our favorite years in hip-hop as well as our guilty pleasures. Stay tuned, you don’t want to miss this show!

Tracklist pretty much speaks for itself, and the chops are executed well as usual with Slim K. I vastly prefer him doing these kinds of mixes to just chopping up the buzzing album du jour.
The new Mobb album leaked, and somebody graciously liberated this gem from the bonus disc to audiomack. FYI, as twitter friend helpfully pointed out, Ghost’s verse is the same as on the ‘Real Live Shit‘ remix.
A full stream of the The Infamous Mobb Deep is up on Pandora.
EDIT: Head over to Unkut to check out ‘Bridge 94’ as well.
Randomly stumbled across this breezy homegrown yacht rap remix that possibly outshines the original version (although it doesn’t top the godly Supreme Team remix.)
If you like rap and have a pulse, you’ll recognize what’s going on here exactly 42 seconds after you hit play (maybe sooner if you’re an advanced rap nerd). The twist is that K-Def didn’t actually use any samples here, he played/interpolated everything himself. Which I guess in a way makes this more of a jazz cover than a traditional instrumental hiphop beat.
The track is taken from K-Def’s upcoming Night Shift album, out this December on Redefinition Records.
