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…

SLAM & Mick Boogie Present #BrooklynOriginals (Mixtape)

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

In anticipation of the Nets tip-off in Brooklyn tomorrow night, Mick Boogie drops his new mixtape with SLAM & XXL.

The idea behind the Brooklyn Originals project came from not only my love and respect for Brooklyn hip-hop artists and their music but also my excitement for the upcoming NBA season and the new era of basketball in New York. I thought it would be cool to combine the logos and imaging of two of the biggest brands out right now–the BROOKLYN Nets and adidas ORIGINALS–into a mixtape project that represented hip-hop to the fullest. Musically, some of my favorite hip-hop memories were listening to and getting to know legendary Brooklyn crews like Duck Down, Black Star and Digable Planets and I have always wanted to do an all-Brooklyn themed project.

Talib Kweli, Tanya Morgan, Skyzoo, Troy Ave, Mr. MF’n eXquire and Nitty Scott, MC all appear on the project.

Track list, stream and all the works after the jump.

Talib Kweli & Year Of The Blacksmith present: The Community Mixtape (Artwork + Tracklisting)

Monday, December 6th, 2010

Back in August, Mr. Kweli played me a preview of this and a couple other things (this was also in Sweden) and it’s basically a compilation of the best tracks his fans sent in. Every single track was screened by him/his team and is considered to be the best song each featured artist chose to send in to him. As much as I’m anti-new rappers, I was actually pretty impressed with the level of skill he had managed to attact with this tape. Sufficient to say, Talib Kweli fans can’t possibly be that wack. Either way, you’ll be able to judge for yourself once the tape drops. It’s presented by himself, Blacksmith Music & YearOfTheBlacksmith. Also, make sure to look out for his upcoming self-funded indie album, Gutter Rainbows which I had the chance to hear a bit of as well. Thanks to Tunji!

Track list after the jump. Previous leaks available here, here or here.
