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.
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.

Download: Frank The Butcher & DJ7L – Illegal Business Mixtape
Here’s a tape of 90′s NY rap put together by my man’s DJ7L and his pal Frank The Butcher.
Download: E.Blaze – For The Luv Of It, Vol. 2
This is the second collection of E.Blaze instrumentals, who has worked with D.I.T.C., D-Flow, Smiley The Ghetto Child and Screwball in the past.
Download: Retch – Polo Sporting Goods
Some grimey New Jersey material from a kid named Retch, who is also a member of the H’z duo with Da$h. Produced by Thelonious Martin.
Download: Roc Marciano – The Pimpire Strikes Back
Here’s a new tape from Marciano to prepare for the release of Marci Beaucoup on 12 November through Man Bites Dog records. Beats from Madlib, Evidence, Arch Druids, Lord Finesse and Alchemist. The CD version is available when you cop a shirt.
Download: Scram Jones – Dead Giveaway EP
Scram Jones continues the tradition of dope producers who don’t really need to be rapping, but the beats on this go hard enough to disregard any complaints.
Download: Action Bronson and Party Supplies – Blue Chips 2
New Action Bronson tape with Party Supplies is available here for free ninety nine. Unclear at this stage why Action is listed as a guest on his on project on track 16. Also, sad face that the Cam’ron feature didn’t happen.
Doo Wop – Halloween Candy 2013 Mixtape
Doo Wop brings a new party tape to get dressed-up as Macklemore or your favorite Pokemon to. Might I suggest attending any festivities as Travis Bickell and Betsy on that ill-fated first date steez?
Video: Sadat X – Stock In The Game
Sadat X goes in on this sessions from DJ J-Ronin Freestyle Files vol.2 – Everybody Who’s Anybody.
Download: Cam’ron – Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1
Rapping over 80′s sit-com themes? Check. Hilarious skits? Check. Effed-up Roy Ayres remake? Check. No sign of former weed carriers such as Vado? Check. It’s like it’s 2001 all over again.
Can’t afford a CRC polo? Cop an Executive Class zine and tape instead.
Just blown all your cash on GTA V or a hooker? Never fear. For those of you who aren’t quite ready to take the plunge and join the elite group that are Conservative Rap Coalition polo owners, we are now going back on the claim of “will not separate” and offering the joys of Executive Class Volume 1 and the Mom’s Basement Pause Tape for the more affordable price of $5 each, plus postage.
Executive Class / Mom’s Basement Pause Tape Packs without the polo:
Download: Willie The Kid – Aquamarine Mixtape
I somehow forgot to post this week. It’s worth the price of admission (zilch) for “Glasses Of Water” alone, which incorporates an amusing Fresh Prince of Bel Air snippet. For extra good times, listen to this while wearing your captains uniform, or at least boat shoes.
Coming Soon: The Mom’s Basement Activity Pack
The future is now. In a last ditch attempt to escape Mom’s Basement again, I’ve been working on an “activity pack” that will be available for pre-order in the next couple of weeks. Put together with the limited resources at my disposal (safety scissors, glue stick, a photocopier, a double tape deck and a pile of 70′s Penthouse magazines) I’ve managed to piece together the following:
1. The world’s first official Conservative Rap Coalition t-shirt, sporting our all-new corporate logo.
2. A 60-minute tape featuring promos and exclusives from my collection of 80′s Red Alert and Chuck Chillout radio shows on one side, and my favorite mid-90′s Tim Westwood Capitol One Rap Show moments on the flip.
3. A 32-page zine called Executive Class, featuring classic comment section wars, removed content and exclusives from the Unkut archives.
This will be a super-limited edition package, only available via pre-order and limited to a maximum of 100 editions. Consider yourselves warned!
The Incomparable Shakespeare – Invincible Dream Mixtape
Points for originality with this tape from The Incomparable Shakespeare, which features the original versions of some classic tracks before he delivers his own take.
