This is interesting. Houston rapper/blogger Oh G! has put together a mixtape made up of Biggie rhymes and MF DOOM beats. You might remember a while back we told you about DJ Finesse’s B.I.G. Over Premier mixtape with Biggie rapping over Premo beats. Well, Oh G! has tried his hand at a similar conquest but with MF DOOM beats, particular from his Special Herb series…

Joey Bada$$ has released his free Summer Knights mixtape. We featured the DOOM-produced Amethyst Rockstar a few days ago in hot anticipation of Summer Knights. Well, it’s now free for you all to download. Joined on the tape with Joey are Kirk Knight, Pro Era, Smoke Dza and others as well as some phenomenal beats from Oddisee(!!), Alchemist(!!), DJ Premier(!!) and Statik Selektah(!!). But its…

Joey Bada$$ throws some gruff rhymes over DOOM-produced track Amethyst Rockstar, with help from Kirk Knight. You’ve gotta come correct when you borrow a title from Saul Williams but I think Joey Bada$$ has done so with Amethyst Rockstar. Featuring the vocals of Kirk Knight, Joey is a little more aggressive and forthcoming with his delivery than you’d usually expect from the Brooklyn emcee and this slight…

Brainfeeder’s Gaslamp Killer loves the Heliocentrics so he remixed some of tracks from their new album into a mixtape of his own.

Crillmatic drops the third instalment of his NSFW: Set The Mood mixes. Oh, and we’re also featuring Vol. II if you missed it in March. Somehow, we missed Vol. II of Crillmatic’s NSFW: Set The Mood mixes. For the sake of chronology, we’re giving you both Bandcamp links right here. Vol. II is different to Vol. I in that Crillmatic built it from scratch but…

DJ Finesse presents a mixtape of Biggie acapellas over Premo beats. The age old question “would Biggie have been as popular were he alive today” will continue to rage on until we’re all worm food but one thing’s for sure, he sounds incredibly dope over DJ Premier beats. DJ Finesse put the whole collection together and while you may have heard those raps a million…

Don’t sleep on FreshVibez collaborative mixtape with SupaGroovalistic and BrookLille.

We can only apologise profusely for the oversight as the mixtape is fire! FreshVibez got together with fellow French blogs/zines SupaGroovalistic and BrookLille to present a selection of experimental hip-hop beats. The mixtape…
