Before I get into it, let me just say that my favorite shit this week is Killer Mike’s Underground Atlanta compilation. It’s a two-disc behemoth and all 30+ tracks can’t be winners, but the majority of them are, and the best ones (Pill, Travis Porter, Trillville, Da Backwudz, and of course Mike himself) make for one of my favorite records this year. You can get it on vinyl too!
Ok, onto the links. Switching it up from one-off tunes this week to talk projects from DJ Boogie Boy, Fashawn & Alchemist, Dubstep LA, J Futuristic, and Trick Daddy. Now lets burn some CDs! Read More
I know the logo for this shit is the purple tape, but I haven’t listened to the new Raekwon yet, I hope it’s as good as the internet is telling me. This week there’s tunes from Big Twins f. Prodigy, Gorilla Zoe, Smitty, Izza Kizza, Meek Mill, Nicki Minaj f. Lil Wayne, and Hov (has anybody used “scape-G.O.A.T.” in their Blueprint 3 snarkery yet? Sorry, sorry…) Read More
For this particularly lucky edition of RAT, check out select new jams from Trick Daddy, Freddie Gibbs, Clyde Carson, D-Lo feat. Sleepy D, and Green Lantern and Styles P feat. NORE and Uncle Murda. Read More
Another mixed bag of beats, this time around with Eve and Ras Kass “dubstep rap,” Peedi Crakk breakbeats, more GLC G shit, Fabo and Tabi Bonney’s rap sangin (the latter helped by Raheem Devaughn) and a country rap tune from Natureboy Rowe. Read ownnn! Read More
I’m writing this late night in Beijing, so no YouTubes this week – they blocked-ed it! But the Peoples Republic Of Catchdubs has more than enough regular ol uploads to go around. Hit the jump for new joints from Zip Flare, Killer Mike, Rich Boy, Nametag & Skyzoo, Slaughterhouse (again!), GLC featuring Cory Mo and Mistah FAB, and Problem.
There were enough clips to go all audio/visual this week. Fuck it!
After the jump watch new joints from Tabi Bonney, Twista, Agent & Raynge feat. Camp Lo and Jet Audio feat. Daytona, as well as reappearances of previous Rappin Ass Thursday-praised songs by Slaughterhouse and Donny Goines feat. Che Grand & Izza Kizza. Read More
