NAHRIGHT & UPNORTHTRIPS Present: #Illmatic20 (Tribute Mixtape)

April 19th, 2014

Twenty years ago today, a 20 year-old kid from the Queensbridge projects released what now stands as one of the most important albums in Hip-Hop history. An instant classic, Illmatic would be studied and celebrated over the next two decades, held aloft as the standard for everything Rap music was and had the potential to be. It’s one of the most flawless bodies of work ever recorded, in any genre, and it is widely recognized as the defining work of an entire era of Rap. The impact of this 10 track masterpiece is almost immeasurable, yet you can still hear it bleeding through in the bars of artists the world over to this very day.

De La Soul Smell The Da.I.S.Y. Vinyl Contest

April 18th, 2014

In honor of Record Store Day (4/19) and the Easter holiday weekend, De La Soul is releasing 100 copies of a limited edition vinyl set of an all instrumental version of the “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” project with J. Dilla.

Says De La Soul:

“The reason we choose to release a all instrumental version of “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” is to give people the experience of a J Dilla beat tape that we were so lucky to recieve. These beat tapes were the springboard that generated creation and generated inspiration for us.”

The vinyl release is very limited, only 100 copies will be released to stores, to resemble the limited amount of beat tapes that Dilla would actually send out to artists like Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Common, Mos Def, Busta, De La Soul and many more. The vinyl contains instrumentals of all 11 tracks from the “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” mixtape plus 1 exclusive, unreleased, never heard before J Dilla beat.

J Dilla was a heavy crate digger that scoured the earth for exclusive vinyl to sample, and if you want this project you’ll have to do the same. The vinyl will be released on Friday, April 18th, 2014 to coincide with the Record Store Day 4/19 and the Easter holiday 4/20. De La has hand picked exclusive record shops in the USA, Canada, and the UK to carry this release. If you would like clues on where you can find it please go to http://www.wearedelasoul.com. If your not lucky enough to find one, De La Soul will also be auctioning off a few autographed copies on ebay and all proceeds will go to J Dilla’s family.

Watch a short teaser video, along with the project’s track list, after the jump and head to our Facebook page to see how you can get your hands on a copy.
