New Redman, teaser of some Clipse + Cam, a surprisingly good Travis Barker remix of Slaughterhouse (with guest Bun B verse) and three random raps from Louisiana Ca$h, ShamGar, and Hit Boy f. Chase N Cashe.

Redman f Ready Roc “Coc Back” [mp3]
Saaaaaaaaaaaardines. Not even gonna pause the title, this jams.

Clipse f Cam’Ron “Popular Demand (Popeyes)”

Can they just leak this shit already?

Slaughterhouse “The One (Travis Barker Remix f. Bun B)” [mp3]
Never a huge fan of all TB’s crunchy live drum remixes, but “The One” lends itself perfectly to the Travis treatment and damn near becomes a new song in it’s own right thanks to clever double time beats on the verses. “Black Sabbath, dagnabbit.” Bernard!

Louisiana Ca$h “Boss” [mp3]
ShamGar “Won Wai” [mp3]
Hit Boy f. Chase N Cashe “Aaah Shit” [mp3]

I don’t know a blessed thing about any of these artists (I think ShamGar might have even been a demo submission!) but the unifying thread is that they all caught my ear out of literally hundreds of tracks I skim thru in a week. Hits? Probably not, but the beats all have a certain charm and the MCs all fit the individual tracks perfectly. In a world of soundalike singles and generic new artists, these all have personality and feel like they’re supposed to be here. And that’s enough for me! The whole point of the column is to share cool shit for its own sake.
