Stranger Day x Emynd – A Sunday Drive With The Windows Down (Zip Mediafire Download)



What can I say? I’m a sucker for this timeless U2 melody so I added some booming 808s and trap hats-and-heys to complete this remix. It’s been getting a ton of love. Hope y’all enjoy it as much as I do.

Nicki Minaj – Super Bass (Emynd Remix) (Mediafire)



Bing bang boom! This time around for the 1st & 15th Mix, I’ve prepared a mix focusing on fun original club blends and remixes that I’ve been rocking in my sets the past several months. Lots of banging new hip-hop joints with some unexpected acapellas on top, all of which I’m pretty proud. I made this mix with the FRESH PRODUCE party at The Good Life in mind– a party in Boston that I’m DJing Saturday, February 25th. Check out the Facebook Invite here and the flyer here. If you’re in the New England area, come see me rock with the homies Knife and Durkin. Otherwise, I hope y’all enjoy this mix!

The other day, I was on a quick road trip listening to Extra Prolific’s now classic “Like It Should Be” and it dawned on me that I needed to put together a collection of my favorite Hiero songs. And… so I did. 27 of my favorite Hiero joints, all of which come before the year 2000. This isn’t because Hiero stopped putting out good music after 2000. Frankly, I have no idea if they did or didn’t because I haven’t been paying attention… but these joints all bang and this mix is a fun trip down memory lane with a lot of great rap that has aged extremely well. I’d like to think this is a good introduction to the Hieroglyphics crew for those who aren’t familiar with their work, but also a fun listen to those of us who grew up listening to them. Anyway, I hope y’all enjoy it!

Stream it above or download it below and don’t forget you can stream the rest of the 1st & 15th mixes here (or download them all individually here). As always, thanks so much for listening!

THINGS WE LIKE: The Hype Men Podcast

Back again with another edition of THINGS WE LIKE! Woop wooooop!

I’ve got a real love/hate relationship with The Hype Men Podcast. I like it because it’s nerdy dudes talking about rap for an hour with occasionally interesting guests. I hate it because sometimes it’s just unbearably nerdy at a very specific, uninteresting level… and it all too often turns into Jensen relaying pointless anecdotes about BEING A WHITE RAPPER SIGNED BY INTERSCOPE and WORKING WITH KANYE and blah blah blah. We get it, buddy: Interscope tried to cash in on your whiteness and multi-syllabic rhyme patterns and Jimmy Iovine would probably spot you money for an Orange Julius if he saw you in the mall. (By the way, what the eff is up with white rappers and multi-syllabic rhyme patterns?)

Anyway, I guess my point is, I have a love/hate relationship with this podcast mostly because of lack of options. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, there’s not a whole lot of rap-related podcasting available, which seems really silly to me. Surely there’s plenty of people that would love to hear hour long interviews with their favorite rappers that delve into deeper discussions than the 5 minute youtube/vimeo/worldstar interview clips where random-rapper-guy is just like “YEAH I WAS IN THE STUDIO WITH WIZ KHALIFA AND HE SEEMS PRETTY COOL! BY THE WAY GO BUY MY NEW ALBUM! SHOUT OUT TO DUBLIN, IRELAND!” or whatever. I guess the Juan Epstein Podcasts are good but they don’t come along frequently enough. A podcast is unfortunately only as good as the podcasters’ commitment to updating frequently. So, yeah, begrudgingly, I like the Hype Men Podcast and you should check it out when you get a chance. The Just Blaze Episode is legitimately great and Fat Jew Episode is legitimately hilarious. Their entire archive is worth scrolling through. They’ve interviewed 88 Keys, Jean Grae, Freddie Gibbs, and a few other notables. Also, Jensen sharing 2 of Yeezy’s earliest beat tapes is an awesome look.

Kudos to the Hype Men boys for trailblazing this hip-hop podcasting ish and, at the very least, providing a constant stream of material that at least ATTEMPTS to move in more interesting directions than most rap journalism out there. And, big up rap nerds everywhere!



Just posting this because I’ve gotten a few requests for it behind the scenes. Don’t forget to check Last Word’s Volume 2 of this series. So ill. Last Word’s notes about Volume 1 mix:

A project I did of remixes of Minneapolis rappers music. i.e. Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Carnage. It’s all sample based, and the quality on some of them isn’t the greatest. People have really enjoyed it that copped it back in the day. It also has all the instrumentals.

Hope y’all enjoy it.
