88-Keys – Adam’s Case Files Mixtape

88 Keys - Adam's Case Files

If you’re familiarly unfamiliar with the name, aside from having a track on the Can’t Tell Me Nothing Mixtape, 88-Keys has producer credits for Mos Def’s Love & Black Star’s Thieves in the Night, both personal favorites of the god. This tape features bars from Kid Cudi, Izza Kizza, Tanya Morgan, Guilty Simpson, Grafh, Mr. Bentley, Serius Jones amongst others and is a precursor to the Kanye West Executive-Produced debut solo project The Death of Adam dropping in October. Graciously jacked from the OKP frontpage.

  2. buddyholly Says:

    might I suggest just going with trilli, turning in a few Douglas Adams metaphors, concluding that life, the universe, and everything is this beat, and then getting high and going on an hour-long polemic about Al/thanking every friend you’ve ever had/telling anecdotes from earlier in life (c) Weezy (c) Lupe (c) Ye?

  24. D. Billz Says:

    Do you agree?

    ^Si.

  25. buddyholly Says:

    @beaze and Dbillz since you both seem to agree with each other

    Your school of thought is that racism by your def is the power to discriminate and have power over others deemed inferior. Got it.

    so logically blacks never had power in the US since they were slaves and never enslaved another race in the US. So they only be bigoted and perjudice but never racist…. hmmmmm

    Anyone can be “racist” if they believe they are superior to the other race. Even black people. What you guys are reffering to is instutinalzed racism because thats how the whites did it to us.

    hypotethcial, crazy shit happens we got the power.. banks, courts, congress… we can enslave white ppl at the “insituational level” that would make us racist also.

    so in a way you guys are half right and half wrong. You just needed the other piece of the puzzle. Thank you and your welcome
