This is the ultimate rap addict dedication – the fantasy league lost Ultramagnetic album that we might have enjoyed if they’d released a follow-up to Critical Beatdown in 1990. Sure, it’s a collection of b-sides and vaulted tracks from between 1987 and 1990, but this sums up everything that makes Ultramagnetic MC’s the greatest rap crew of all time. All praise due to Ced-Gee, Kool Keith, Moe Love and TR Love – the best to ever do it. Shout out to James aka BadNewz of 100X Posse for dropping that ‘MC Champion’ verse.

The Mighty V.I.C.

The Mighty V.I.C. has been a part of some great production teams over the years, as part of The Beatnuts, Groove Merchantz with Godfather Don and Ghetto Pros with Mike Heron, in addition to his own solo work as a producer and engineer. I recently uncovered an extensive interview I did with him which was left over from the short profile that ran in Hip-Hop Connection in December 2008. I’ll be dropping that in the next week or so, but in the meantime it inspired me to revisit some of his best moments behind the boards so far.

Dr. Butcher, who you may remember as the guy who did all the scratching on Kool G Rap‘s second album (as well as rapping at the end of ‘Jive Talk’), has also contributed a number of wonderfully brooding soundtracks for MF Grimm, Akinyele and G Rap to unleash speech over. Here are fifteen of my favorites.

The Science: What Is The GOAT Rap Beer?

Ever wondered what the most popular beer in rap is? For scientific purposes, I assigned my crack team of weed carriers to compile the drinking habits of 76 78 rapper dudes based on lyrics from actual tracks (and ignoring the dozens of paid St. Ides advertisements) to establish which brand is the undisputed king of beers. While the result is certainly no surprise, you can examine the data below and enjoy the wonders of the Interactive GOAT Rap Beer Pie Chart (c) CRC. Next level, yo. Except if you’re on your celly, in which case you won’t see jack, Jack. The genius of the pie chart means that I can keep adding entries as they’re suggested, which automatically makes this whole thing a million times more useful than Rap Dummy.

Video: Him Lo – Lo Sama Him Laden [800lb Gorilla]

This is the second video from the free Counterstrike 2: A Decade of Unkut project, featuring Him-Lo Da Inapproriate stomping through Philly, as shot and directed by CRC VP richdirection for aunqueting media. Look out for Him-Lo’s Complimentary Snacks tape, dropping here in the near future.



Download: MC Eiht – The CRC Collection

It goes without saying that the first three Compton’s Most Wanted albums are an essential part of any Conservative Rap Coalition members collection, but just in case you’ve neglected MC Eiht‘s extensive feature work and b-sides, I’ve assembled a collection of eighteen more pieces of Eiht hype that will please the ears of East-Coast Elitist’s everywhere.

Following the well received Breaking Atoms album, which introduced the world to the talents of Large Professor, Sir Scratch and K-Kut, as well as early cameos from Akinyele and Nasty Nas, Main Source contributed the addictive “Fakin’ The Funk” to the White Men Can’t Jump soundtrack and declared “Main Source forever, yo!” on their feature with the Brand New Heavies.

The second album, The Science, had several completed tracks and demos in the can when it was previewed by The Source magazine, until Large Pro decided that working with a group that was managed by the other two member’s mom made as much sense as Shaquille O’Neil rapping and broke north. The McKenzie brothers would eventually recruit Queens street battle legend Mikey D to take over vocal duties, and even re-recorded “Hellavision” for the doomed Fuck What U Think album, leaving fans to forever speculate on what might have been if Paul Juice had stuck around.

Thanks to a handful of limited-edition 7″ pressings, Japanese re-issues, record label compilations and bootlegs, I’ve been able to assemble eight cuts that represent the sound of Main Source’s lost sophomore project.

A Salute To James Brown – The Godfather of Hip-Hop

While the rap world falls over itself in the never-ending J. Dilla circle jerk, today would have marked James Brown’s 81st year if he was still with us. Considering just how hard he worked during his life, it’s amazing that he lived until 73 – a lesser man may have perished mid-splits. According to his long-suffering friend Bobby Byrd, JB and Tina Turner once shared a stage at the Five Four Ballroom in LA where they spent the entire night attempting to outdo each other by jumping off the piano into the splits and whatnot! Yet the only mention of JB I’ve seen on the rap internets has been egotripland posting couple of JB tribute mixes courtesy of DJ Scratch and J. Period. So let us take a minute to recognize and realize just why James Brown is the alpha and omega of this hip-hop shit….

Official CRC polo’s will be available this week as part of the exclusive Mom’s Basement Activity Pack…it’s a new dawn of reactionary rap listening! The Neo Con Rap Country Club is getting closer. Before long, we will be able to enjoy non-progressive rap over Jameson without a non-collared t-shirt or pair of short pants in sight. Peace to Theotis Jones for his fine work for the cause.



Video: Prodigy and Alchemist – IMDKV [Unkut TV Edition]

This is the story of a bat-shit crazy Tai Chi dude and a guy trying to listen to music on his phone while wearing shorts and smoking a cigarette, one sunny summer day in Prospect Park, set to the first track from Prodigy and Alchemist‘s outstanding “IMDKV” from the Albert Einstein album. I sense an MTV Video award in my future…

What with the current influx of Molly Rap, Acid Rap, Loud Rap, Lean Rap, Yayo Rap, Bath Salts Rap and whatever the fuck else these characters are getting bent off, it seems like we’ve returned to the Slow Rap era that Cypress Hill heralded in the early nineties. Does that mean that we need to get twisted on the appropriate substance to fully enjoy much of this new rap? I’m pretty sure you need ingest heroic quantities of codeine to fully enjoy this new DOOM song with Clams Casino, “Bookends”:

The Conservative Rap Coalition – 2013 Agenda

Much has happened since our last meeting. Those of you who couldn’t afford the original Platinum membership packs have requested other options to show your support, and the landscape has shifted somewhat. Hipster Rap ate itself in a blur of day-glo, but new enemies have emerged in it’s wake. Now is not the time to rest on our laurels and pat ourselves on the back for a job well done, for the war rages on. Here are some of the major issues facing the CRC in 2013:

Mikey D Apologizes To LL Cool J and Melle Mel

4014796_640 Portrait by Pritt Kelsi

Queens battle MC veteran Mikey D hit up Unkut HQ the other day to make the following announcement:

Mikey D: All through the years, since the 80’s, with [LL] Cool J, each interview that I have the topic of the conversation is always about me and him. Although we went through what we went through, me looking back as a grown man, technically he didn’t do anything to me that was wrong. He did everything that he was supposed to do! But I got caught-up in people’s misery. You know how they say “misery needs company”, so by me still drinking 40 oz’s and still trying to hold on to being the “baddest MC in the neighborhood” title – and you’ve got these miserable people in your ears all the time, hating on him for what he’s doing? Of course I fell into that. I’m going to keep it real and say to him that I apologize for any form of disrespect. I can’t fault a man for my failures. After I left the beer and all of the negative people alone, that’s when I started seeing clearly. Melle Mel also, what happened happened at the New Music Seminar, that was 25 years ago. Let’s get over it. I want to apologize to both of them as a man, because we are all under the same umbrella. Let’s get it poppin’!

Mikey’s new crew Elements of Hip-Hop consists of Mikey D on the mic, DJ Mercury (who worked with Professor X) and Philly DJ legend Grand Wizard Rasheen. Calm Before The Storm drops April 2, with Day of Destruction following later in the year.
