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!”
New Sean P and Illa Ghee, from the MM. Rick Sorry I’m Late mixtape, hosted by Redman and available here.
Forgot to post this last month, but in case your sitting on the fence about copping the latest chapter in the Doppel Gospel, you can stream the entire Peace Kehd LP before grabbing the CD or vinyl.
New O.C. track produced by DJ Force and available on limited edition 7″ over here, with an alternative mix on the flip.
J-Ronin brings you 48 freestyles jammed onto one tape with the second installment of his Freestyle Files series, featuring such CRC favorites as Sadat X, Tragedy and Lil’ Fame among it’s extensive cast.
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!”
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…

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).
The U.N. - “UN Da House”
Diamond just threw me the artwork for his next LP, which is due to drop in April and has a number of features from big name rapper dudes, the one that I’m the most excited about being Black Rob…
