Stories: A Glimpse At Señor Kaos’ Cornerstone Mixtape Collection


Cornerstone is a marketing firm based in NYC that started in the later half of the 90′s by music industry insider Rob Stone. I’m not sure how long they’ve been cranking out the Cornerstone Mixtapes actually, by the time I heard of them, the series was on around Volume 16 and that was around the year 2000. What I do know though, is the mixtapes were never sold at retail, they were only sent to DJ’s, promoters, tastemakers, industry insiders, etc. via mail. In order to get a copy you had to be in the know. Each volume featured the newest music straight from the labels (before you could download something off a blog). Receiving a mixtape in the mail meant you were getting a new mix from some of the best DJ’s from NYC and around the country as well as something exclusive. It also meant you were in the know and probably a person people needed to know in your city.

In addition to new music, the cornerstone mixes also promoted the latest products from various brands including: Levis, Brand Jordan, Dodge, Trojan (Condoms), Converse, etc. They were the first to create a real synergy between Hip Hop mixtapes and corporate marketing.

It took a while before I made it on the list (Shouts to DJ Mega). Over the years it seems as if I’ve ended up with a whole collection of these things. Every once in a while I would take some time and listen to these old mixes. Some are still great, while others sound very dated.

Some of my CD’s include mixes from the Beatminerz, J. Period, Aphiliates (Drama, Don Cannon, Jaycee, Jamad, Ox), Mick Boogie, Clark Kent, Mark Ronson, etc. I just went through my collection today, and snapped a few pics, and wanted to share this story for those who may have never heard of these mixtapes. These are true collectors items.



Mixtape Mondays: Lacer Head Wear x Smokin Shells “Evolved Originality”

Check out Señor Kaos featured on this Lacer Head Wear x Smoking Shells mixtape.

Lacer Head Wear and Smokin Shells release their first collaboration today, Evolved Originality. The mixtape enlists the hosting talents of Phife from A Tribe Called Quest and is mixed by Smokin Shells’ own Dj Rasta Root. Lacer ( is well known for its patented lace designs on their fitted and snap back caps. Smokin Shells ( makes high polish dj turntable headshells. The cd is more of a compilation album than a conventional mix tape. Dj Rasta Root picked 12 (plus one bonus) tracks from artists close to their respective camps. Jersey’s Verb Spielberg has repped Lacer since day one. 4-Ize and Señor Kaos are a mainstay in the Atlanta music scene and have been down with Phife and Roots for years. Will Dudat is a young up and comer whose verbal compositions remind us of Andre 3000′s intricate wordplay. Phife makes a cameo alongside T3 from Slum Village on Rapper Big Pooh’s They Say (Remix). Phife also gives listeners a change to hear three incredible, new unreleased tracks from his upcoming solo album, Cheryl’s Big Son : The Anomoly. Dj Rasta Root does what he does best and blends each track seemlessly from start to finish.

Lacer commissioned none other than Don Rimx, world renowned graffiti artist, to create the cover and back artwork.

Mixtape Monday: Chief Justice “Genesis – The New Beginning” Mixed & Hosted By DJ Evil Dee

The homie Chief Justice sent over his new project. Chief Jus has def been on his grind heavy lately, doing shows with Pharoahe Monch in nyc, linking up with DJ Evil Dee to host and mix his latest project, and enlisting legendary visual artist Fuse Green to lace the visuals for this joint. I suggest you check it out. Look for an appearance by Señor Kaos on Jus’ new album scheduled to drop sometime next year.

Chief Justice’s first solo mixtape, produced in large part by Chizzle Rose, Code Red & DJ Leks, is “Genesis: The New Beginning”, which is led off by the soulful single “Final Destination.” The video for that song was directed by Ian Wolfson (Rex Arrow Films), who is responsible for videos of Pete Rock, Mac Miller and many others. Another stand-out mixtape track is “Star-Gazin’.” The mixtape, hosted and mixed by DJ Evil Dee (Da Beatminerz, Black Moon/Duck Down Records), is a collective of original songs and freestyle verses over popular hip-hop instrumentals that showcases Justice’s diversity and the depth of his flow. Also featured on the mixtape are cameo vocal drops from nationally respected DJ’s and well-known entertainers such as Michael K. Williams of HBO’s “The Wire”, as well as guest appearances from rappers 4-Ize, Mike Millz and more.

Mixtape Mondays (Part 2): Ekundayo & Mike Flo “Alive & Well” Hosted By DJ Kemit

The homie Ekundayo told me about this joint on the 16th and I JUST finally got a chance to sit down and check out this morning. I had NO idea the two of them were even working on this project until the heard the finished product. I’m digging it. Shouts to the homie Princeton Parks who ends up getting busy on two tracks. Beats from the likes of Illastrate and Amdex who also laces a CRAZY verse on the track he produced. Definitely some more flavor repping the ATL Indy Hip Hop scene.

Download: DJ Mick Boogie – Prelude To The Throne (Mixtape)

As everybody knows the highly anticipated collaboration album between Jay Z & Kanye West “Watch The Throne” drops tomorrow finally via iTunes before the physical copies hit Best Buy’s nationwide on Friday. After the listening party last monday at New York’s Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History the net was going crazy with rave reviews. Yeezy and Jay have pulled off the impossible by also not letting this album leak to the masses before it’s proper date. Something I can’t say I’ve seen in the past 10 years. I guess we’ll all have to wait till tomorrow to “Watch The Throne”

Mixtape Mondays: Quality Control & Unique Squared Present The Official SXSW Mixtape


Shouts to the good people over at Unique Squared. Soul Wallace, AJ, Presyce, Tom and the rest of the gang.

During this year’s SXSW Festival leading pro audio company Unique Squared, in partnership with Quality Control Marketing, parked a massive tour bus on Austin’s streets to serve as a state of the art recording studio. Throughout the festivities some of hip-hop’s most notable emcees stopped by the Mobile Studio to record exclusive songs over all-original production. The result is The Official SXSW Mixtape, a 30 track collection that captures the energy and creativity of SXSW.

The Official SXSW Mixtape is presented by Unique Squared, Quality Control, 2DopeBoyz and Acclaimed industry engineer Fokis handled the mixing and engineering duties while tracks were blended and arranged by DJ Presyce (three time Scribble Jam DJ Battle Champion). Featured artists include Tanya Morgan, Skyzoo, Khaleel, Nick Javas, J-Live and more. Contributing producers include Seattle’s heavyweight beatsmith Jake One, Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), Crazy DJ Bazarro (of the Beatminerz) in addition to noteworthy up-and-comers Apollo Brown, IMakeMadBeats, Dynamite Brothers, D.R.U.G.S. and female producer Kels of TN2 Productions.

To witness artists selecting beats, writing and recording in such a short period of time was extraordinary and a testament to Unique Squared’s ability to create a unique and creative environment. It’d be an understatement to say this was a Herculean task on everyone’s part, thank you to all the partners and artists that helped make it possible.
