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:

Download: AG feat. Ghetto Dwellas – Return To 1999 LP

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.

Rap Bloggah Gahds connect like Voltron to give you a new spin on all this Illmatic nostalgia. I recommend the Timeless Truth and Mr. Motherfuckin eXquire tracks in particular.



McGruff feat. Mob Style, Loon and Meebo – Bow Down

mcgruff-web

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!”

DB10 - Front

Feel like taking a trip back to the mid 90’s? Debonair P has you covered:

“It’s been a little while since I uploaded a mix – I recorded this one in 2012, released it on CD last year, and finally got around to uploading it. This mix features 67 tracks, mainly from ’95-’97, and as usual hopefully there is something you haven’t heard before. Enjoy!”

Re-Up: Counterstrike – The Unkut Mixtape Hosted By DJ Doo Wop

Unkut-COUNTERSTRIKE-Front

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.

UN Or U Out Tape Re-Issue Announced

UNCassette-Inside_1024x1024

The debut album from The U.N. (Dino Brave, Mike Raw, Laku and Roc Marciano) is getting a re-release in April with two bonus tracks. Since most of you no doubt copped this when it first dropped, the good news is Fat Beats are pressing a tape version for ten bones. Frozen Files played “4 The Luv” last November, and “UN Da House” is from the World Domination mixtape (which deserves a vinyl release of it’s own since that was arguably better than official LP).

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.

Live Review: Run The Jewels, Danny Brown and Earl Sweatshirt @ The Palace, Melbourne

palace1
Clearly not a picture of last night’s show.

In the interest of “music journalism” I forced myself to attend a rap show last night featuring rappers I don’t really listen to on a regular basis, but don’t really have any huge level of hate for either, which is about as good as it’s going to get until Nice & Smooth decide to tour these shores. After enjoying a few rounds of boilermakers and weed with some associates, we wandered into the venue the very moment that El-P and Killer Mike hit the stage.

Download: Him-Lo Da Inappropriate – Horsepower Mixtape

HIMLOCDCOVERFRONT

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.

Just stumbled across this debut release from the Rappers I Know blog’s new label, which is the latest instrumental project dealing with the breakdown of his relationship with his daughter’s mother, based around the Marvin Gaye album of the same name, from former K-Otix’s producer The ARE, who’s previously blessed us with Manipulated Marauders and Dem Damb Jacksons.
