Wrekonize "A Soiree For Skeptics" (Mixtape)


No skeptics here! As if he didn't already have enough credibility, within the last year Wrekonize backed Lil Wayne on his Rebirth album along with his band, ¡Mayday!, and now has dropped his own project, A Soiree For Skeptics. Dude is REAL busy, and this tape will more than tell you why. Enjoy!

Rock The Bells 2010

After relishing in the memories for at least three days after the fact, we have finally posted the photo highlights from our trip to Rock The Bells in LA. A pilgrimage of sorts, we had the pleasure of catching six of the greatest acts of all-time on one stage, the most rewarding of which was undoubtedly Lauryn Hill. Following a 13-year hiatus, Ms. Hill performed with the verve and vigor of Fugees-era Lauryn, and even graced the crowd with two gems from The Score, Fugee-La and Ready Or Not. Being there reminded us of all the reasons why we have been so obsessed with this music and this culture for so many years. Along the way, we were lucky enough to meet many, the most gracious of which were the RZA and Yung Dirty Bastard. We can't wait to see who will be tapped for next year's lineup, although this year's will be a tough act to follow.

Verbs "Progress 2" (EP)


Impressed by The Buzz, the EP featuring Intuition, we were excited to hear Progress 2. After hearing his feature with Murs & 9th Wonder on Fornever, we assumed this this project had to be solid. It did not disappoint. Enjoy!

Jason James & Rodney Hazard "Marvelous World Of Color" (LP)


This project is quite simply amazing. It is difficult to imagine trying to compile all of the good and the bad of the last ten years into one cohesive (albeit lengthy) thought, yet that is exactly what Jason James and Rodney Hazard have accomplished with their Marvelous World Of Color LP. Brilliant in its delivery and thought-provoking in a very necessary sense, this LP will go above some heads. But if you aren't willing to give this tape a spin then you are cutting yourself short in more ways than one...

k-Os "The Anchorman" (Mixtape)


As if Wale's Seinfeld-influenced projects weren't enough, k-Os hits us with a themed tape of his own. Based on the Anchorman film made epic by Will Ferrell and all his curly-haired craziness, this tape is not only original in its own right, but also HILARIOUS! Having been longtime fans of k-Os (Exit is still a virtually unknown classic by so-called "heads"), this project is not surprising but definitely welcome. Enjoy!

Janelle Monae "Cold War" (Video)

Remember where you heard it - this woman will be one of the greatest we have ever seen. As if we weren't impressed enough with her first suite, with Archandroid, with seeing her live and then by MEETING her, then she releases the visuals for Cold War. It is a kitchen sink of emotions, but visually so bare that it forces the listener to truly hear the lyrics. Impressive to say the least...

We cannot tell you how stoked we were to receive this inbox notification! As longtime fans of DJ Quickie Mart, this mix was not only a glimpse of home, but also a reminder of what really matters (fuck oil spills and politrixxx). A finely crafted collection of lates, greats, and current tastes this tape is sure to please. Enjoy!
