First there was Yacht Rap, and it was good. Then there was Low Speed Chase, and that was also good. Now comes the next saga in the continuous rap-adventures of Chad. Still aboard Morgengruss X, adrift somewhere in (warm) parts unknown, Mr. Sexington linked up with Messrs. Grizzly and Note of Purple Tape Pedigree/Fresh Out The Box Radio to compile another set of smoothplayalisticyachtmuzik anthems for your enjoyment. So once again, douse the supermodels in Dom Pérignon’52 until their sarongs are see-through and enjoy.

SteadyBloggin’ & Passion Of The Weiss Present – Smooth Operators: A 420 Tribute To Sade

I did this Sade-themed topically stoner-oriented mix for Passion Of The Weiss’ mix series. Included are some awesome rap songs sampling Sade, some chopped & screwed versions of Sade songs, and a few brilliant stony oddities that somehow combine the former with the latter to mind melting results. It all came out pretty awesome if I do say so myself, including the typically awesome cover by John Turner Jr. You should download it and listen to it while smoking like 6 scorpion shaped joints in a row.
There is a much more detailed description of all this on PoW, including the rationale for my selections and why certain things didn’t make the cut. You can read all that HERE. S/O and thanks to my girlfriend Jenna for helping a bit, and to John for the cover, and to Jeff for hosting it.

Bastard seems like he’s at his best when working with Texas music B/W I’m such a simp for that ‘Show Is Over’ sample it might friendzone me and fuck my best friend and I would still buy it dinner afterwards.

Sade+Z-Ro – Cherish The Day + Respect My Mind (Chopped&Screwed Mashup)

Friday, April 8th, 2011

So, the promised Sade+Jay-Z remix/collaboration dropped a little while ago, and on first try it’s … boring. The Sade part is fine, but once we get to Jay the song just kinda sits there in your headphones sheepishly, not sure what its supposed to be doing, hoping to skate by on the virtue of its own existence. Maybe it will grow on me, for now no dice.
I’d like to offer up this similar minded stoney youtube gem as an alternative (courtesy of somebody named Drobitussin). The two songs being mashed are an obvious natural match, Z-Ro’s song samples Sade’s to begin with. And since the music of both parties lends itself rediculously well to the chopped & screwed treatment , doing it here feels pretty natural too. The results are a bit awkward and rough around the edges, even allowing for the chopping factor some of the mixing feels run-on and it could use more Z-Ro . But even with its faults this concoction still adds up to a moment of off-kilter sonic bliss that the Jay-Z remix fails to become.
