LL Cool J – Soul Survivor [Unreleased Original Version]


After speaking to Dr. Butcher again the other week, he revealed that he’d located a copy of the song he produced for LL Cool J in 1993, which went on to be remixed by QDIII and included on his fifth album, and generously agreed to allow me to share it with the world.

Dr. Butcher: I produced a song called ‘The Soul Survivor’ for him on the 14 Shots To The Dome album, with C4. Me and C4 – the guy who did [Akinyele’s] ‘Put It In Your Mouth’ – were production partners. I was going to C4’s house one day to work on some music, and LL was shooting his first video from that album on Farmer’s Boulevard, and C4 lived on Farmers Boulevard at the time. I got off the bus and saw him and I was like, ‘Yo! What’s up!’ We was always real cool, whenever he had time he would always come see me, but he had been so busy we hadn’t seen each other in a while. So he’s asking, ‘Where you going?’ and I’m like ‘To my production partner’s house right down the street’. When we originally did the track, we sampled JDL from the Cold Crush Brothers saying, ‘The L baby, baby, the L baby, baby!’That was the first song I ever produced, I didn’t know how to use machines at the time. We had just got an Ensoniq and was learning what to do. It was rough around the edges. As soon as he heard the track he just sat down, got a pen and pad and wrote the song right on the spot. He was like, ‘Yo, we’re goin’ to the studio tomorrow, gimme your information.’ So I had to go get attorney’s and set-up publishing companies and we were in the studio the next day, recording. It happened that fast.

DJ JS-1 feat. AG, Sadat X & Neek the Exotic – Sample Abusers


Here’s the premiere of the new DJ JS-1 track which makes clever use of a Larry David quote to form the hook. Why has it taken this long to incorporate the genius of Curb into rap songs? Talk about a sure-fire way to gain instant Conservative Rap Coalition approval! Taken from JS-1’s latest LP, It Is What It Isn’t, which is now available from UGHH.

Clever 1 – Canteinz Of Whiskey


Clever 1 [Da Buze Brovaz] is dropping an album titled The Dirty Dozen through Unkut/CRC this Halloween, produced by DJ RockSteady. Here’s a taste of what you can expect.

Him-Lo feat. Big Nawz – Valore Bathrobes


If you caught my footage of the Kool G Rap and DJ Polo show in Philly last year, you would have noticed that huge dude standing on stage next to G, chomping on a cigar. Turns out he’s a fellow by the name of Big Nawz, who is not only KGR’s road manager but also been known to drop a rhyme from time to time, as he’s done for this guest spot with Da Inappropriate.

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.

Mikey D and Devastating Tito – Got’m Say’n Hey [Produced by Large Professor]

0 (1)

Mikey D and Devastating Tito [Fearless Four] have just teamed-up over a catchy Large Pro production for some of that good old back-and-forth rhyme routine action.

Mikey D and Tito also kicked some rhymes for 45 King‘s Making The Beat show the other week:

Illa Ghee – 90


World premier of the stand-out cut from BK trooper Illa Ghee‘s third LP, Social Graffiti, which is due 8 July. Driven by a breezy Large Professor head nodder, Ghee drops slang technology buttery enough to cover a jumbo bucket of popcorn, slyly informing us that, “Life’s a bitch – better yet a Kardashian.”

Video: Mic Handz feat. Lil’ Fame – Don’t Get Stomped

Some of that good old Punch Your Moms In The Face Rap, with the obligatory Fizzy Womack feature. Produced by Aaron “Freedom” Lyles.

Roc Marciano – The Specialist


Unreleased new Roc Marciano track produced by Pete Rock, as heard on DJ Premier‘s Live From Headqcourterz radio show.

Alterbeats feat. Divine & Tragedy Khadafi – 7th Dynasty


World premier of the new project from French producer Alterbeats, who has previously laced dudes such as Neek The Exotic. Taken from the Class Struggle project.

Roc Marciano – Just Let Me Be

World premier of this new Roc Marciano cut, produced by Australian production duo Fre$heep. You can cop this on limited-edition 45 (200 only) or the Antidepressants CD over here, fuckboys.
