The 2012 “Cre-A-Tine.”[1] But for all the endless knowing that’s going on here the real highlights come when he breaks the pattern to declare I said I’m Quincy, bitch! It’s hard to sound menacing when your name is Quincy but Q sells it. (Prod. by Nez & Rio)

from Humble Hustle (Mixtape, 2012)
Heist records are basically the best kind of rap records and heist records are even better when they’re tag team heist records. So DC’s Young Moe and Fat Trel hit all the marks with “Tired Of Being Broke,” alternating duties on the first two verses and then going back and forth inna Nas and AZ style on the third. Also you have to kinda love Trel admonishing Jo, don’t smoke no cigarettes that movie shit’s so obvious. Dude is concerned with bucking cliches during a crime spree. And that instinct is also why he’s a better rapper than anyone else in his age bracket. (Prod. by Mr. Tretirus) Read more…

Let Me Upload U

January 22nd, 2012

Damn things are getting real with the net as ever before. If you haven’t yet noticed Megaupload, the greatest and least ad-ridden file hosting site has been seized by the powers that be. This is a big problem and not just for Swizz Beatz’z's barber. You see, Megaup was the principle host for the many mix tapes and compilations that I’ve posted on this site over the years. So I’ve taken to reupping everything in the very loosely dubbed CB Mix Series on Mediafire, which hopefully will not be crushed by a government that desperately wants to control what it doesn’t understand in the near future. It might be wise to grab these while you can. Hit the jump for a dozen tapes of Bounce, Based, Bass, Cranks and much more. Read more…

Recent Adds 3/11

March 25th, 2011

Recent Adds is the series where we check terrestrial radio charts to see what independent records have been added to the playlists recently. The idea is that it will help shine some light on semi-significant or at least payola’d out songs that slip below the blogosphere. Mostly it just results in me making fun of rap names until I overdose on Lex Luger synth sweeps. It’s been almost a year since the last installment so there’s a lot to talk about. Some of it’s actually good. Most of it features Yo Gotti. Read more…
