Man… It’s already Wednesday! I working on getting this posted for you guys this past Monday, but time flies. Either way, if you haven’t heard this yet, it’s a treat so check it out.
In honor of the Outkast reunion and concert at Coachella this past weekend. DJ Mick (formerly Mick Boogie) put together a special collection of rare tracks and remixes. If you’re looking for the greatest hits mix, this ain’t that! A true treat for any real Kast fan though. So check it out now and thank me later… BREAK!
For all my Raphael Saadiq fans out there. Check out this mix DJ Trauma and DJ Mars put together called “The Sounds of Saadiq.” Lots of jams on here, blended perfectly. This project is the perfect soundtrack for lighting a candle, grabbing a glass of wine, and spending some time with that special someone.
DJ Trauma and DJ Mars, two members of Atlanta’s World Famous Super Friends DJ collective, are back with not only a new mixtape but the first in their new #InstantVintage series that they’re presenting in association with SoulBounce.com. The twosome have cooked up The Sounds of Saadiq, with just shy of an hour’s worth of all things Raphael Saadiq. This mixtape includes Saadiq’s solo cuts as well as his work with Tony! Toni! Toné!, duets, features and even tracks that he’s written and produced for other artists. You’ll hear a little bit of everything on The Sounds of Saadiq with a blend of studio, live and rare Raphael Saadiq selections along with artists such as D’Angelo, Kelis, Teedra Moses, Musiq Soulchild, Total, A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots and so many more. If you love Raphael Saadiq as much as we do, then you are going to love what DJ Trauma and DJ Mars have done on this mixtape and on future editons of the #InstantVintage series in the coming months.

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 (www.lacerheadwear.com) is well known for its patented lace designs on their fitted and snap back caps. Smokin Shells (www.smokinshells.com) 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.

This joint is better than most albums that dropped this year!
In celebration of Michael Jackson’s 52nd Birthday yesterday, Dj J.Period dropped a new mixtape “Man Or The Music.” Free copies of the mixtape were given out at the NYC Birthday celebration event in Prospect Park Bklyn. Since I wasn’t there, and some of may have not been either, here’s the mixtape for your listening pleasure. If your familiar with the homie J.Period, you know how he puts it down on a mixtape.
J.Period & Spike Lee pay tribute to Michael Jackson with this Limited Edition mixtape, available exclusively at the 2nd Annual “Brooklyn Loves MJ” event TODAY, August 29, 2010, in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. Mixing Michael’s classic hits with rare demo versions, remixes, and behind-the-scenes interview clips, J.Period weaves together an 80-minute musical documentary that pays tribute to The King of Pop’s staggering catalog of songs, and reminds us why—no matter what you think of the man—Michael’s true legacy will always be his music.
Shouts to the homie J.Period, Dj Spinna, and Fuse Green who hooked up all the artwork for this campaign. Check out Fuse and Spike Lee at the 40 Acres office – Behind the scenes, Michael Jackson Wall.
Dot Got It.com & Illcuts.com Present: The 1988 Vs. 1994 Mixtape. Mixed by Dj Grandman and Dj Elmattic.
This project came about from debates here on Dotgotit ,with vets like Mic Geronimo standing by 94 and Von Pea and Snoop Dogg agreeing with me about 1988….we decided a mixtape from each perspective would be dope so the homie Guy Fawkes over at Illcuts.com recruited DJ Elmattic to rep the 94 side and DJ Grandman held it down for 88. Here it is, Dotgotit.com & Illcuts.com Present…
I gave you all some fresh Hip Hop mixes, now this one here is for the lovers. In celebration of Common and Queen Latifah’s new movie “Just Wright.”
