July 14th, 2011 · No Comments

You may have noticed the ad in the sidebar for the new Michael Rapaport-directed documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, which opens next week in Philly. I have been waiting for this film to come out for years, and now it’s here – the story of one or hip-hop’s […]

Mixable Intro Edits

September 27th, 2009 · 23 Comments

Here’s a grip of intro edits I’ve made the last few months. There are a few rap joints – the Michael-McDonald-sampling classic Regulate by Warren G and Nate Dogg, the Think-sampling More Towels by Philly fav Peedi Crakk. There’s a nu-disco joint – High Together by Germany’s Siriusmo. Plus, there’s the slow, bouncing disco groove […]

Hustler’s Anthem

March 30th, 2009 · 22 Comments

I know this isn’t new new but it’s awesome. T-Pain’s appearance is kind of superfluous – I guess it just raises the pop profile of the track. But really, this is just a good, ol’ fashioned Busta track. Busta Rhymes f/ T-Pain – Hustler’s Anthem | Zshare | 320 kbps

Zilla Rocca – “Nada” (DJ Apt One Remix)

December 10th, 2008 · 26 Comments

A remix I did for the homie Zilla Rocca (of MoneyFolders and Clean Guns fame) just came out today. I wanted to give Zilla a beat that was reflective of my personal style and taste, but true to various root elements of hip-hop.

State Prop Crew – Ocean’s Seven

April 9th, 2008 · No Comments

Nothin like a murderous distorted guitar loop with some kick drums and what sound like live handclaps. Basically the template for a Philly rap track that’s too next level grimy to ever break out.

It Must Be Rap Week…

April 1st, 2008 · 1 Comment

…because Sandman (of Re-Up Gang) has a new tape out. It’s called “Sandman Ego” (what?) and you can grab it at the Re-Up Gang Blog (no, really, what?). (note: it’s OK if you can’t remember which one is Sandman and which one is Ab-Liva. I can’t either, but only because I never hear them anywhere […]
