The first leak from my upcoming remixes and blends mixtape with Reef the Lost Cauze is available for download! The rest of the mixtape will be available next Monday, March 11! Grab the track now and check back here for the full mixtape!



As many of you may know, we here at Crossfaded Bacon Headquarters are close friends with one of Philly’s finest rappers Reef the Lost Cauze. Dude has been in the game for years and we have contributed beats to several of his albums, making some truly memorable stuff. Reef recently released a free album on Christmas called “REEF THE LOST CAUZE IS DEAD” full of him rapping on flips of somewhat unexpected songs, many of which make for really fun and different material than he has made in the past. You can tell these beats really energized him and made him approach rapping a bit differently than he has done in most of his more popular stuff. We personally really like the album, but even if it’s not entirely your cup of tea, it’s worth a listen if just to appreciate an artist challenging himself to do something a bit different. You can stream the album above or download a free copy of this album on Reef the Lost Cauze’s Bandcamp page but he’ll also be giving some few free CD copies away tomorrow at our first Friday monthly THE BOUNCE (click here for flyer and facebook invite here). We hope y’all enjoy the album and hope to see you tomorrow night at The Bounce as well!



This Saturday, May 26th, our friends at BigBite Philly are very proud to present their 4th Annual Wing King chicken wing competition! Crossfaded Bacon has been a proud sponsor of this event from its inception, and we’re super hype to eat mad wings, drink some delicious brewskis and listen to DJ 2 Tone Jones rock the party. Also, our good friend and official CFB homie Reef the Lost Cauze is hosting the event. It’s destined to be another legendary night in the great city of Philly!

The festivities start at 530PM and the event will take place at The Ellen Powell Tiberino Memorial Museum at 3819 Hamilton St in West Philly. Click here for more info or just go on ahead and hit up the Event Brite page to cop tickets now! The BigBite Chili Cook Off hit capacity EARLY, so don’t be afraid to cop your tickets in advance to avoid the long lines!

Lastly, I believe there are a few spots left for competitors so if you can bang out some delicious chicken wings, sign up here and battle for one of the coveted BigBite trophies!

See y’all there!

Reef & Emynd – Dick Needs Goggles

Reef – Dick Needs Goggles (Prod by Emynd) by Emynd

My man Reef and I hooked up this hilarious and fun club rap jam. 808s, claps, syncopated synths and a dick needing goggles. WTF else do you need? I kinda love this shit to be honest. Hope y’all fuck with it too!

Bo Bliz Present “Reggae Tunes 2010” and Mixtape RE-UPS

Made this so I could listen to some reggae I LIKE down the shore this week. This has a lot of my favorites, some very recognizable, some not. If you follow reggae extremely closely this may not be for you, I went with a lot of classics on this one. As always, shout to Kenny Meez, without him and those Sundays at Filo’s my life would be way different.

Also, by request, I have re-upped a few of my “Best Of” mixes. They are at the bottom of the page. GET EM!!!

Wale ft Gucci & Reef *Pretty Girls* Emynd Remix

Wale ft Gucci Mane and Reef the Lost Cauze “Pretty Girls (Emynd Go-Go Remix)”  by  Emynd

Taken straight from the Do It To It Volume 3 (Click for the awesome artwork!!) that was unveiled at the release party at SXSW, here’s my remix of Wale’s great song with Gucci Mane “Pretty Girls.” I guess the OG is technically on some Go-Go ish, but I made a remix with some more accentuated Go-Go Drums and got my dude Reef the Lost Cauze to kick a new verse.

I’m really happy with it. Hope yall like it! You can purchase this remix and the rest of the CD HERE! It’s great!
