Re-Up: Counterstrike – The Unkut Mixtape Hosted By DJ Doo Wop
Just realized that the link for this was dead so the ten year anniversary of Unkut seems like a good time to re-up this 2010 release that I put together with strictly exclusive CRC-style tracks. Might be time for a part two come to think of it…
Download or stream almost an hour of non-progressive rap below.

Stream: DJ Yoda – Rap Is Good 2014
DJ Yoda has put together a mix of New Rap That Doesn’t Suck from the last six months or so, which also happens to be Conservative Rap Coalition approved by happy coincidence.
Conservative Rap Coalition Polo Re-Up
CRC VP richdirection.
As part of Unkut Dot Com’s 10th anniversary celebrations and due to a number of requests, we’ve decided to do a small re-up on the world famous Conservative Rap Coalition polo shirts for $50 each, which is a saving of $5 from the original price. For those of you who fux with Unkut but don’t mess with collars, there will be a range of t-shirts available later this year, but for everybody else, this is a second chance to rep some official rap blog martorial elegance and be the envy of your friends and foes.
Twenty Rap Albums To Be Buried With
I’ve had a few requests of late to break-down my list of personal favorite rap albums, so to set off this tenth anniversary week of Unkut Dot Com, here are the twenty tapes I’d like to be buried with, or take to a desert island with a crate of AA batteries for the Walkman.
Download: Him-Lo Da Inappropriate – Horsepower Mixtape
Turns out Philly can still churn-out some quality, CRC-approved rap, as this mixtape from Him-Lo demonstrates. The homie Dallas Penn holds it down on hosting duties, and there’s a song which uses “Nautilus,” which is always a good sign. Also, “On A String” just might be the best previously unused 80′s R&B flip in a long time.

Where To Now?
Jeff Garlin’s dedication to the classic Lacoste polo knows no bounds. Salute this man.
It’s been a big year here at Unkut Dot Com, what with the triumphant introduction of the Conservative Rap Coalition polo, the first edition of Executive Class and the introduction of Unkut TV, not to mention the support of everyone who fux with the site on a regular basis and all of you who contributed to funding my five week tour of duty on the east coast in June, where I spread the gospel of Rap Hands and poorly executed classic rap dance moves. While the era of the specialist music blog is clearly on the decline as larger operations have stepped into the game, not to mention the ever-present threat of the Hipster Music Mafia, Unkut will continue to give you more of the raw and continue to be cold gettin’ dumb on you crumbs.
Having ended my stint in Mom’s Basement, I’m currently putting together some more print projects to mark the upcoming ten year anniversary of the site, but in the meantime this seems like an appropriate juncture to hear what you all want to see from the site in the future. Do you prefer the classic recipe of long-form text interviews, themed compilations and brutally honest opinion pieces? Do you want to see more original video content? Or is there something else that will step the CRC movement up to the proverbial next level of the game? Speak ya clout…
The Unkut 40 Oz. 2013
The time is finally here for the CRC Top 40 for the year. The only rule is a maximum of one song per release, which is why a few people were able to sneak in two entries courtesy of a mixtape or street album. As you’ll see, much of the list is comprised of the usual suspects – we’re not called the Conservative Rap Coalition for nothing…

Twenty Classic Literature Updates
As the CRC empire expands, it’s only right that a literary publishing arm of the organization is established. The following is a list of our first twenty re-boots of some timeless examples of the written word.
Rob Kelly – Jack The Ripper 2 [The Ripper Returns]
Rob Kelly is a paid-up member of the CRC and a drunken Irish hooligan with an ear for good beats. Like all good organizations, being part of the Conservative Rap Coalition automatically grants you access to the finer things in life, one of which is getting your music posted on Unkut on the condition that it doesn’t suck and is deemed suitably non-progressive.
CRC Polo’s Have Shipped!
At long last, the Mom’s Basement Activity Pack‘s have been shipped out, while the tape/zine only packs will go out tomorrow. The Executive Class zine and Mom’s Basement Pause Tape are now sold out, but there may be a second small run of polo’s due to a lot of requests. Stay tuned.
Marco Polo feat. Large Professor, Inspectah Deck, O.C, Tragedy Khadafi & DJ Revolution – Astonishing
One of the highlights of the forthcoming Marco Polo album PA2: The Director’s Cut, as Large, Rebel INS, O.C. and Trag all go in. DJ Revolution steals the show, however, with what can only be described as scratching so great it should be illegal.
Video: Sadat X – We In New York
The Great Dot X can’t stop, won’t stop. From the forthcoming New York: Never Left LP.
File Under: Predictible G Rap Write-Up
Complex compiled a list of who Rap InternetS consider their favorite rapper dudes (and dames, as it turns out). I did my duty as a CRC representative and explained why KGR is the nicest on mic devices and all that stuff, because clearly no one else was going to.

Pre-Order: The Mom’s Basement Activity Pack – CRC Polo, Zine and Pause Tape
A mere three years since I first discussed doing some Unkut.com t-shirts, and the first Mom’s Basement Activity Pack is finally complete. This is a limited-edition pack of only 100 editions, being offered for pre-order for the next two weeks only, with your pack being shipped the week beginning 7 October, 2013.
This glorious package contains the following essential items:
1. The official Conservative Rap Coalition embroided polo, made from TrueDry mesh [160gsm, 60% Cotton, 40% Polyester], available in the classic set of “stormy” colors.
2. Mom’s Basement Pause Tape, Volume One – a 60-minute cassette tape featuring promos, skits and exclusives from my personal collection of recordings from Kool DJ Red Alert and DJ Chuck Chillout Kiss-FM shows, plus some extra stuff stolen from the internets.
3. A 32-page b&w zine called Executive Class, Volume One, featuring classic comment section wars, removed content and exclusives from the Unkut archives.
4. A personal letter of thanks from myself for supporting the CRC cause and possibly helping me escape from the basement for another month before the end of the year.
Now is your chance to stand-up and be counted as a CRC trooper, and reject the folly of “streetwear” with this official tissue, pioneering advance in Rap Blog fashion. All of this can be yours for only $65, and will not be sold separately or reprinted.
