Prodigy – The Phone Tap (Welcome To State Prison)

As I reported last October, Prodigy dropped a seven-minute verse over the phone for the homies Sid Roams to turn into a track. It took a minute, but Bravo just threw the finished version my way…

Ironlak Presents: Counter Strike – The Unkut Dot Com Mixtape

Design: The Home Office

If you’d told me that I’d be dropping a tape with DJ Doo Wop that featured exclusive tracks from some of New York’s finest back when I started Unkut Dot Com six years ago, I would have told you to stop smoking that shit. I’ve been through some ups and downs over that time, but Unkut has always held me down regardless. This is a small token of my appreciation to everyone who has supported and stuck by the site and kept things moving.

Shouts to everyone who came through and contributed to this project on the strength. Thanks to Ironlak for the support, eskay and Legend for helping to spread the word and of course the one and only Doo Wop who really knocked it out the park.

Still cold gettin’ dumb on you crumbs after six years…let’s go!

DJ Phantom Discusses Killa Sha’s Career

Late last week I was contacted by DJ Phantom – who it turns out was Sha Lumi’s right-hand man in the music game – and I was fortunate enough to have him share some stories about Sha. For those of you not familiar with Phantom’s resume, he’s been involved in the mixtape game heavily for years, and was responsible for bringing the world the debut mixtapes from artists such as Consequence (Take ‘Em To The Cleansers), Saigon (Warning Shots), Trife Da God and Streetlife to name a few. Here’s here’s the Killa Sha story according to Phantom:

DJ Phantom: Killa Sha was more than my friend – that was like my brother. I met Sha in ’99 through Trag, ‘cos that’s when I started working with Trag. Trag told me to come to Power Play Studios and I said, ‘Yo, I wanna meet Killa Sha’. He’s said, ‘Why you wanna meet Sha for?’ I said, ‘Cos the nigga’s the nastiest outta your whole group!’ I’m imaging Killa Sha to be some 6’2”, tall-ass dude from Queensbridge…I get to the studio, he calls me and goes, ‘Yo, Sha’s here, yo, so let’s get up’. So I go to the control room, open the door and I say, ‘Yo, where’s Sha at?’ He says, ‘Sha’s in the lounge.’ So I’m in the lounge room, chilling out, and I see mad people in there. So I go back into the control room like, ‘Yo, I don’t know who Sha is, man’. So Trag brings me back in the lounge room and says, ‘Yo, Sha! Come over here!’ So I see this 5’5” dude come next to me, and I look at Trag and I say, ‘You aren’t Killa Sha, son!’ He’s like, ‘Son! I’m Killa Sha, son! I’m Killa Sha!’ I’m like, ‘Word? Son, you my nigga!’ He started laughing, then Trag is like, ‘I’ll be in the control room, see you guys later’. From there, me and him became friends.

Rap Album Collector’s Editions That Need To Happen

Dwindling CD sales getting you down? Wondering why the rap game can’t buy you a pack of gum? Then take a leaf out of the video game industry’s book of rip-off’s tricks – the Collector’s Edition. Why settle for selling your new album for $15 when you can make a $150 version? Here are some suggested ‘Limited Edition’ sets for soon to be released rap albums:

Raekwon The Chef – Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II – 38th Chamber Collector’s Set

Not only do you get the long-awaited sequel to one of rap’s greatest albums in a hand-engraved metal CD tin, this essential package also includes purple triple-vinyl, a purple cassette, a mini version of Ghostface‘s Gold Eagle bracelet, a razor and a DVD with exclusive footage of Joe Budden getting punched in his eye.

Old St. Ides Ads > New Rap

All those Sprite TV spots were cool but the St. Ides spots that DJ Pooh put together remain as the finest examples of rapsloitation ever. Were these MC’s selling their souls for some free booze or just hustling smarter? Who cares, the shit bangs!

Rakim – ‘Get Some’

The 18th Letter over ‘Nautilus’? He could convince me to drink a fuckin’ Corona with promo as good as this!

Sample Clear Fail, Pt. 2

With so many vaulted classics out there, you didn’t think I was gonna stop at just one drop, did you? Here’s another six burners that were condemned to promo/bootleg hell for all eternity.

Blame Biz Markie – Six Songs That Couldn’t Get Samples Cleared

Once the domain of the white label bootleg 12″, thanks to the internets we can now track down high-quality versions of all the tracks that had to be re-recorded, re-played or just plain re-made from scratch because the label couldn’t afford to pay for the loop or were faced with a ball-breaking situation where the original artist hated rap or some shit.

Six Lost Black Rob Joints

As the man himself once said, “Your arms too short to box with Rob”. Fresh back from another “vacation”, B.R. just hit us with a new one, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to dip back into his extensive catalog of mixtape/unreleased burners.

K-Def – Pirate Radio Mix (1994)

K-Def gets loose on the wheels for this never aired mix intended for the Pirate Radio Show hosted by his mentor Marley Marl. “Oh snap, dude had ‘Who Shot Ya’ a year before it dropped?” Darn tootin’. As L.O.N.S. once harmonized, ‘That’s what connections are all about!’

Three Unreleased Show & AG Tracks

Some tracks from the Live Hard sessions that didn’t make the final EP. The only info I have on them is that ‘Trouble’ was “recorded weirdly”, while ‘About This Flow’ was produced by Lord Finesse. Another Unkut exclusive…

Show & AG feat. OC – ‘Trouble’

Show & AG – ‘About This Flow’

Show & AG – ‘Chain Of Events’

Alchemist feat. KRS-One – Grand Concourse Benches

Despite being voted the Greatest of All-Time here at Unkut, KRS doesn’t always hit the mark these days. This isn’t one of those days. Taken from ALC‘s Chemical Warfare.

Alchemist feat. KRS-One – ‘Grand Concourse Benches’

Michael Jackson – Remember The Time (Ron G Blend)

Actually from Tape #7, but what can you do…

What better way to pay respect to the King of Pop than these two gems…one of the most inspired blends ever courtesy of mixtape royalty Ron G, and an album of dope Jackson 5 chops from The Are

Michael Jackson – Remember The Time (Ron G Blend)

The Are – Dem Damb Jacksons

For a great list of written tributes, Rafi’s on the case.

Grand Puba feat. Large Pro – Same Old Drama

Short but nothin’ sweet about this old mouf convention. Sounds like Large Paul did the track too. Grand Puba’s Retroactive drops on the 23rd via Babygrande.

Grand Puba feat. Large Pro – Same Old Drama

Bonus: Puba on “Punks…”

DX: Do you remember your initial reaction when you first heard “Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down” and “Pass The Gat”?

Grand Puba: That’s the thing that kinda messed me up [after leaving the group to go solo], ‘cause I wish I was on “Punks,” I woulda murdered that shit. I was like, “Damn!” It’s like I know [Sadat] X wish he was on “360,” and Jamar wish he was on “Soul Controller.” I had that [moment after “Punks”] like, “Damn, man.” That shit, and the “Pass The Gat” shit. Those are my regrets, man. I wish I was on them joints right there

Video: Nas Vs. Biggie – The Battle That Never Happened

Uptown tape king DJ Doo Wop threw me this exclusive blend video he made, which answers the question – What if Nas and Biggie had gone at each other on the same stage, verse for verse? Here’s how it might have gone down…
