A Tribe Called Quest

For all the Fresh ATCQ fans out there, these laces are now available @ Starks Online Store.

And for the people who are just interested in music, we got those Electric Relaxation Remixes. A Movement called The MOOVMNT & UNVSL

J’Davey – Relax


Anthony David – Spittin electric game





Gyeeeaaahh!  Elzhi is arguably and even most likely the greatest lyricist alive.  No one has the word play as well as fresh delivery like he does.  Without a doubt one of the most slept on emcees that doesn’t get the recognition he deserves because he doesn’t go out wearing super tight jeans, bright colors, and all that other mess.  OMER SAAR

Elzhi – Save ya Feat.T3


Elzhi – Fire (Prod by Black Milk)




Phonte Coleman

New video from DTP’s Playaz Circle featuring Phonte (of Little Brother).  Huh Phonte of Little Brother on Southside?. Yes Phonte of Little Brother on the hook. Saw the first 30 secs from the video and thought. NO this can’t be. Is Phonte really a paper chaser?? Then the real song started to play……

Playaz Circle – Paper Chaser Feat. Phonte (Produced by Mr Porter)


Dill Withers

Been listening to The Ma Dukes Collection (Mixed By Rhettmatic J. Rocc and Houseshoes). You can get this CD on some tours of artist related to J.Yancey. On this mix there’s another mix from J.Rocc with some Dilla samples. I know we already posted a Dilla sample mix BUT this mix reminded me of a tape with tracks before Fantastic Vol 1. Don’t know how that got into our hands but I do know y’all need to hear it if you haven’t already. So listen to that here and download that Dill Withers mix. Question: What’s the The Hustle sample and the track of the 10.24 sample. First who knows one of the 2 gets something special.

Slum Village – The Hustle

Slum Village – Untitled



Heard some good news from the man Kenny Fresh @

PPP will be a dropping their first single from Abundance on July 8th, which will be followed up by the album’s release on October 7th. As for the sound of the album – you can expect some 60’s doo wop, string sections, hip-hop, rock, and Detroit techno all rolled into one – all with a PPP twist on it, of course.

Kenny Fresh and the Bling47 fam also got that Open Your Eyes (Bobby Caldwell) Remix Feat. Elleeud A.K.A Andwele Gardner A.K.A Dwele on their myspace. You should already know you could also find some Bling47 gems on

Lupe Fiasco – Paris, Tokyo

New Lupe Fiasco Video. I think we posted this sample a while ago.  We now got about 200 posts on So if you only just found out about the site, don’t sleep. In the future we will post some more samples for the true hiphop lovers.

Deodato – San Juan Sunset


Also used by Ta’Raach & The Lovelution – Fuhkinaround feat Blu



88 Keys

88-Keys born Charles Misodi Njapa, is mos definetely not as popular as the artist he worked with like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Musiq, J-Live, DJ Spinna, The Pharcyde, Ummah Collection, Kanye West, Consequense, and Bilal.  88  is one of the most slept-on producers out there. Maybe it was time for a solo project to earn the respect he deserves. In June 88 keys will release The Death of Adam: a narrative-based, primarily instrumental album that uses features from Kanye West, Guilty Simpson and others. Just listen to some music from 88 keys on Moovmnt, and respect hip-hop artists that give the good true hip hop feeling.

88 Keys – Just like a man feat Guilty Simpson


88 Keys & Bilal – MILF  



Samiyam Rap Beats Vol.1

*flicks were taken from Sam’s instore over at Poo-Bah Records in Pasadena. he’s making his Rap Beats Vol.1 beattape personally. i suggest you go over to his page and consider investing in this dope ass mix.

Wassup, my name is Samiyam, from Michigan, just moved out here to sunny LA. Enjoying the weather out here as my homies back home freeze their ass off.

When did you first develop a vested interest in music?

 I dunno, I’ve been listening to music forever. I used to play instruments, like the piano and the clarinet for a while. I really started thinking of making my own music in high school, listening to hip hop and wondering how the fuck people make this shit.

How would you discribe your first beats?

Wack. Not very good. I guess some of that shit is all right but the mixes would be super fucked up. I started off with the MP first off. I don’t think I was that great on it at first.

When did you first notice a sound developing in your shit?

I guess at one point when I was using the MP I was doing some shit that had a little sound to it, sampling records and I had bought a little synth and I was playing bass lines. Shit was coming out with a little sound to it. I made some shit maybe a year or so after I started making shit and thought, ah, that sounds allright. Even after listening to it after a couple of months, I was just kind of making shit and having fun before that, making stupid shi

How do you see your shit, or do you not even see it in a certain way and it’s just something you do?

I don’t really see it in in a certain way, it’s just some shit I do. I got the machine I like to make music on, just turn it on and do some shit. I mean I guess the shit sounds a certain way sometimes when it’s done but I don’t think of shit in any special way, that question’s kinda weird.
