Jay Electronica – Man Up (Unreleased)

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015


Some previously unreleased Jay Electronica, which was recorded sometime during the early aughts, has made its way on to the internets this afternoon. If you follow Jay on Twitter, you may have noticed that last week he suggested that he would send one of his followers a new song with directions to share it with the public as the fan saw fit.

This is almost certainly not that song, but it’s another interesting entry in the Electronica canon for fans to pore over. The track, which Jay says he recorded during the first George W. Bush term, references 44′s presidency, the Benzino/Eminem beef and Afghanistan, so you do the math.

MICK – Greetings Earthling: Outkast Rarities & Remixes (Mixtape)

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Our good friend MICK (formerly Mick Boogie) apparently got inspired to do this mixtape after he saw the “Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik” remix by Diamond D in our “Top 20 Remixes of 1994″ feature so he let us drop this. Shouts to him. NAHRIGHT premiere.

A message from MICK:

Greetings Earthling: Outkast, hands down, is one of my favorite groups of all time – in any genre of music. Their music set trends, defined a generation, and created a mood unlike any other. In honor of their Coachella reunion, I put together a fun mix of Big Boi and Andre 3000 rarities, demos, collaborations and remixes. If you’re a MICK (or Mick Boogie – remember him?) fan, you’ll find this similar to the retrospectives I did for A Tribe Called Quest and the Beastie Boys. If you’re looking for Outkast’s greatest hits or stuff from their albums, you’re out of luck. Go to iTunes and buy those right now. If you’re a true fan and looking to dig a little bit deeper and really enter the world of the Dungeon Family – this is made for you. And it’s hella long – maybe TOO long – almost two hours! Lastly, check out the special painted original cover we created – made by Deftone of Jolly Awesome. Take me to your leader…

Joey Bada$$ – 20 Miles (Unreleased)

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Joey Bada$$ liberates a previously unreleased track from a mixtape called New Kid On The Block that he recorded at age 15 under the name JayOhVee. Listening to this now it’s pretty clear how much his flow has advanced since, but this Beta version of Joey was certainly no slouch on the mic.

Listen to Michael Jackson’s Unreleased Abortion Song

Friday, September 21st, 2012

I’m pro-choice and everything but abortion is still a pretty shitty concept in general. Michael Jackson was no fan either. Of the 8 unreleased tracks on the new 25th Anniversary edition of Bad, “Song Groove (Abortion Papers)” is sure to attract the most attention. I’d agree with ego trip that it’s actually pretty decent as far as Michael Jackson songs go, but I don’t think anybody is surprised that this never came out.

KRS-One – It’s Gettin Hectic (Prod. by DJ Premier)

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Last night DJ JS-1 liberated an unreleased DJ Premier produced KRS track leftover from his seminal 1993 solo debut Return of The Boom Bap. This cut is just one of a number of gems that you will find on JS-1′s Demolition Mix, a sprawling 3 hour long mix of demo tracks and rarities from the Golden Era.

Here’s JS-1 on “It’s Gettin Hectic” and a few other gems you’ll find on the mix:

I doubt there is anyone who heard EVERY single track in this mix. Even the biggest hip hop fiend and collector is sure to find something on here to make them look twice. This whole mix is worth it just for the unreleased KRS-ONE and DJ PREMIER track that didn’t make the Return of the Boom Bap album.
Thank You Dj Premier for letting me have that. I promise we won’t sell a few thousand white label 12″‘s to japan. hahaha. The 3rd Bass and Brand New Heavies track is also a really good one to check out. Of course all the Rakim songs on here are sure to make you press rewind once or twice. I think the DMX track like Unstoppable Force will surprise people. I love the Biggie reference track for Lil Kim. That’s been around for the longest, but it’s classic and i die laughing everytime he says stuff like “i suck dick better than you.” lmao. man, mr. cee must have been loving this track.

Download: Link

I took the liberty of uploading the entire mix (it’s a 250+ MB mp3) to a site that allows streaming, so if you have 3 hours to kill you can hit the jump and throw away an afternoon.
