Cole James Cash just posted a new mix over at the new CRC HQ titled Rap Republicans, featuring remixes and blends speaking on the state of the rap nation.
The third book in Brian Coleman‘s Rakim Told Me series is dropping in October, and by all accounts Brian has stepped up his game even further on this volume. Covering the stories behind the creation of another 25 important hip-hop albums, the book ships with a special 7″ single of Smif ‘N Wessun‘s “Home Sweet Home” if you pre-order through Get On Down.
In the meantime, check the chapter list below and head over to Mr. Coleman’s Medium site to preview a couple of chapters.

To celebrate ten years of cold gettin’ dumb on you crumbs, Unkut Dot Com is proud to present over 50 minutes of new, exclusive Conservative Rap Coalition approved rap, plus a few bonus snippets from some of my favourite interview moments. With contributions from veterans such as Grand Daddy IU, Chubb Rock and Craig G, as well as new favourites like Willie The Kid, Him-Lo and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire. With original beats from producers such as K-Def, Ahmed, Marco Polo and Confidence, this mixtape also brings the first new material from K-Otix and Real Live (K-Def and Larry-O) in years. Counterstrike 2 has been mixed by Crate Cartel‘s Discourse, with the artwork designed by Flick of BURN Crew.
Free CD version now available with every purchase of our new range of t-shirts and crewneck sweaters.
You can still grab 2010′s Counterstrike from here, by the way,
Back cover/track listing:
Check the debut LP from new Diamond D discovery Big Rec from Oklahoma, produced entirely by the “Best Producer On The Mic” himself. Stand-out for me was the “NO 2 NC” which flips the same loop that Godfather Don used on “Seeds of Hate.” Cop it over at iTunes.
To celebrate ten years of Unkut Dot Com, I reached out to a number of rappers and producers that I fux with to lace me with an exclusive for the sequel to 2010′s Counterstrike tape. With the help of Discourse from Crate Cartel on the mix, the finished 50 minute mixtape is finally ready to drop next week.
In other news, the official Conservative Rap Coalition HQ site is also ready to preview.
Counterstrike 2 – A Decade of Dope track listing:
Ideal mix for the weekend as DJ Shred One blends origianl soul samples with the songs that flipped them for Sample Soul: A Tribute Mix to Soul Music of the ’60s & ’70s Through Hip Hop Beats, courtesy of the URB Mixtape Series.
Free rap to make you wanna slap ya cousin.
Meyhem has just delivered the first of several collaborative projects with a single producer (next up is his DJ Muggs project), which thankfully proves to be a trimmed-down affair in light of his “everything and the kitchen sink” debut album, Self Induced Illness. His following two projects benefited from more focus, and having Buckwild at the helm for the whole of Silk Pyramids certainly pays off.
Cole James Cash has just dropped a new instrumental project themed around all Vietnamese-based musical samples. He also provided a detailed explanation of each track exclusively for Unkut below the break…
Track by track breakdown:
Check this tenth anniversary compilation of Unearthed Records material, mixed by the one and only DJ Revolution, who I once suggested should go and punch a whale during his stay in Australia. Available on 2CD with mixed and unmixed versions.

Schott Free just blessed his Instagram with the track listing for an early version of Roc Marciano’s debut solo project, back when it was intended to drop on SRC Records. As you can see, only a portion of these tracks made the final version (albeit with some changes to the names and spellings). Here’s what Schott had to say about it:
Just got off the phone with Andre The Giant from D.I.T.C. after what is easily a top five Unkut interview, where he mentioned that he’s just emancipated the vaulted Ghetto Dwellas LP from 1999 for free download over at his new site.

GRIM Team representative CHAZE just dropped this ill mix of electro, boogie, soul and breaks with Omar White to enhance your next trip on the iron horse.
Following the mixed blessings that were McGruff‘s deal with Uptown, where Heavy D tried to Sean “Puffy” Combs’ Herb’s sound for something smoother, with decidedly mixed results, the Crime Dog took it back the gutter with this self-released 1998 single featuring the mighty Mob Style, Loon and Meebo over a gritty piano loop. “They thought it was over? Own label!”
