Big L – 5/30 Tribute (Mixed by DJ Soul)

June 1, 2009

Earlier this year we celebrated the life of a legend, Big L, on the 10 year anniversary of his death. Over this past weekend (May 30th), what would have been Big L’s 35th birthday passed. DJ Soul put together this collection of L’s work including freestyles, songs, and collabos featuring some of the dopest verses you will hear in life. Says Soul of the project: “… I dropped this online mix to remind people why he was one of the illest. Shouts to Lord Finesse, DJ Premier, Rich King & the brother of Big L for their assistance and allowing the project to happen.”

Today is the late great Lamont Coleman aka Big L’s 35th Birthday. One of the illest to grace the mic, Big L left us too soon and is surely missed in todays rap climate.

March 28, 2009

MUST SEE!! I had the pleasure of watching Kane perform live in the 2nd annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, and till this day have never seen a live hip hop performance quite like his. He still can keep up with the newer generation and hasn’t lost one step!! Just check the video above at about 2:27…make sure there’s a soft surface below you for when your jaw drops. More footage from his performance on Thursday with Kane doing his verse on Big L’s “Platinum Plus”. Also if you havent yet, check out the documentary on Big Daddy Kane here courtesy of Scion.

AX feat Tyler Pursel of Gym Class Heroes – Broken Dreams (Acoustic)

March 26, 2009

AX is a sick emcee reppin the BX, been following him for a long time now, and has some of my favorite concept songs ever, one of them being 100 to 1…if you haven’t heard this yet, do a search and find it!! I used to have the mp3 but cant seem to find it but once I do, I’ll make sure to post it. However, AX is still doing his thing along side Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy for his Batsquad Records label. This video has AX doing an acoustic rendition of a song he has called “Broken Dreams”. Can’t wait for the mp3 to actually drop, loving the emotion he puts into his lyrics. After the jump, check an old video of his where he flips Big L’s classic “Ebonics” live with Spanish slang…smh…YO AX HOLLA AT ME I NEED ALL THESE MP3s!!!!
