Another jawn courtesy of Urb magazine. This is from the forthcoming, highly anticipated and full-album collabo between Detroit's grimiest emcee and the heir to Dilla's throne (OJ Simpson, due May 18th from Stones Throw).
Guilty Simpson, "Cali Hills" (prod by Madlib)
Previously intended for Leftback, but never made the cut and held back by 9th Wonder (according to Phonte). Now available for the fans and sleeping hip-hop heads courtesy of Phonte and Urb magazine.

I almost forgot about this song. I came across one of DJ B.Cause's excellent and innovative blends this morning that chops up the instrumentals behind the Marvelettes' "Too Many Fish In The Sea". Here is the classic music video for this classic track. DL below. Enjoy!
Yeah, DJ's gotta put up with some shit but it's part of our job... unless you've been in the game for as long as Kid Capri has. If you're at a hip-hop party and someone of Kid Capri's caliber is DJ'ing, you have NO right to make a request. Props to the OG for setting shit straight!

You know the drill. It's the last Friday of the month, which means That Dude Trey and I make our pilgrimage to St. Paul to bless the capital with a dance night full of juxtaposing big hair and break beats. Come on through and mention this blog to receive a free summertime mix CD by yours truly!

After about five strait days of rain, fog and to most, "crappy" weather (I'm actually a fan of rain), I got a strong craving for my two weaknesses: donuts and records. It wouldn't be far from the truth if I said that I grew up on donuts....and with most of my monthly leftovers going towards records, I guess you can say I got a thing for things that are round, hot and fresh.
After grabbing a coffee and a few sprinkled cake pieces of heaven at Mel-O-Glaze, I made my way a little deeper into the city on a 45 mission. Without a doubt, I came out satisfied on both counts. Just another reason why I appreciate the little things in life.
Damu is pushing out some new material in a few weeks. Here's a peek at where it all comes from complete with nasty cuts as usual...and man, would it be nice to be able to play in a basement full of records and instruments all day.

Both artists are at the top of their games. Hi-Tek's a genius for that bassline... ooohwee!
