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.

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.

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:

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!”
