Matter Ov Fact and EP are back with a free EP of new material. Some of the beats are leaning towards a more ‘modern’ sound but the raps are still that classic Shark Nation deviates flow.

M.W.P. is a producer from Espergærde, Denmark, who just dropped this collection of Roc Marciano remixes over at Bandcamp. Not that “Snow” actually needed a remix, but it’s always interesting to hear different interpretations of great vocals.

Visuals for this Roc Marciano produced gem from last year’s Brugal & Presidentes EP, available here on CD and limited edition tape!

If you caught the J. Force interview, you’d have read about the release of this lost project from Kev-E-Kev and Ak-B, who were on DNA Records with Super Lover Cee and Cassanova Rudd, with beats from Paul C. and Marley Marl. You can order this limited-edition release over at GoodFelons.

Update: Looks like this might not be coming out anytime soon based on comments below…

Download: Raekwon – Lost Jewlry EP


Managed to fight back the Wu-Fatigue from the other week and give this new Raekwon a spin. Despite sounding a little distorted due to being mastered FAR TOO LOUD, this is pretty good. The Scram Jones tracks were the stand-outs for me, especially the “Trans-Europe Express” flip on “Came Up.” Hopefully a remastered version appears soon, but in the meantime here’s the EP with the title that English teachers hate.

Kool G Rap feat. Nas – Fast Life [Buckwild Remix]

To celebrate the release of the superb Nineteen Ninety Now LP with Celph Titled, Buckwild is releasing a limited-edition vinyl EP (only 200 copies) on No Sleep Recordings, with remixes/unreleased cuts with Celph on the A side and some unreleased remixes on the flip. Here’s his lost remix of ‘Fast Life’ – not to be confused with the Salaam Remi or Vinyl Reanimator versions…

Buckwild: “I worked on this somewhat later then I should have. Even though I did the album version and it was the single, Salaam’s remix was chosen before I even turned this in. I was going to use it on the white label, but went with the Nas and AZ songs instead”.

Some good news for vinyl fiends with three new limited-edition releases from Freestyle Records, who also brought us Showbiz & AG‘s Broken Chains:

Showbiz Presents: The Big L / Silky Black Double Pack

Freestyle Records proudly announces our second collectors-only collaboration with the one and only Showbiz. This time around we wanted to do something a little different and not only bring out lost tracks from Big L (R.I.P.), a true lyrical legend (the 11th anniversary of whose death just passed), but also give exposure to an MC who didn’t get his proper shine back in the day: Silky Black.

Everyone who has any kind of a blog, website or even Twitter account will be familiar with the number of groups who hit you up to post their music. Most of the time I just ignore it, but this one got through the gate on the strength of their being managed by Adam Heron, the son of Mike Heron (who you’ll no doubt recall from this classic Unkut interview). The Doppelgangaz ‘2012 or Forever’ sounds like some 90’s shit (which is good, dummy).
