Wu-Tang Office

This is some damn good role play. I was thinking of posting '36 chambers but decided that every blog probably has that album so I came unique with the youtube video.

Madlib - Beat Konducta - Vol. 1-2: Movie Scenes

Madlib, the genius young producer (yes, I believe he’s earned the title of “genius” by now) behind so many diverse projects over the years, from Madvillainy to the Quasimoto albums to Yesterdays New Quintet to Jaylib to DJ Rels, has finally dropped his instrumental album. It’s on Stones Throw, which makes sense—through his prolific production work he’s practically come to define the Stones Throw sound by now—and the comparisons to J Dilla’s Donuts are inevitable. Both albums are longer works composed of 30-something shorter tracks, most averaging about one to two minutes in length, and both are largely instrumental, using any vocals—usually sampled and chopped—mainly as instruments. Both are on Stones Throw, and the two were frequent collaborators, notably on Champion Sound. Damn Madlib has a nicer touch than Tiger Woods does with a putter. Always up to par with other producers and recently was able to collab with the great one Talib Kweli on Liberation. Madlib 'The Beat Konducta Movie scenes vol 1-2 is a soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist. This makes the album quite unique and allows imagery to enter your mind and will let you escape reality. My favourite beat on this soundtrack is "Pyramids" but most of these instrumentals are hot potatoes. Enjoi. And remember dont forget to practice your free steez.

Tribute to J-Dilla


Tuesday, June 12, 2007


This a delicious treat for any beat junkie. Created on his deathbed, Dilla shows why he is revered as one of hip-hop's all-time greatest producers. Dilla was believed to be suffering from a kidney-related illness for some time, dating back to 2004. He was just getting into his groove and got some real industry-wide props and please...a moment of silence and we will have Jay Dee tracks to remember in his memory. RIP Jay Dee and thanks for leaving your listeners with one more bangin' album before your passing. Dont forget to practise your free steez.

Surreal & The Sound Providers- True Indeed

Jay Skills and Soulo, the two-man hip-hop production team have been blessing eardrums since their first release, Dope Transmission b/w The Field, in 1998. Their "backto- basics" format of flavorful beats, scratched choruses, and hype rhymes, garner the Sound Providers a/k/a SP�s an enthusiastic following which continue to grow with each release. In 2001, when faced with the departure of lead emcee, Profile, the SP's moved forward and collaborated with some of their favorite emcees such as Asheru (of Unspoken Heard) and Little Brother to name a few. Recently they�ve teamed up with Tampa Bay emcee Surreal.This longtime hip-hop fanatic has been steadily making moves, paying dues and retiring scores of emcee within a 500 mile radius of his lab in Tampa Bay. A true emcee in every sense of the word, he has the ability to switch from braggadocios battle emcee to soulful and introspective artist with an innate flow that only comes from a gifted and natural performer. Recognizing this raw talent, the SPs quickly teamed up with him and the result is True Indeed, a new album crafted by two of the best producers in the game today.<

This album is full of smooth jazz plus some wildstyle lyrics from Surreal. Soulseek hooked this one up. I recommend every head out there take a peak , Surreal and the sound provders' -True Indeed- doesnt dissapoint.
