Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Sometimes I find some stuff on the Internet that’s so lit I can’t bring myself to share it with everyone. I might tell a few close homies about it, but otherwise, nah—it’s too good to tweet about. Well my dog DJ E-Feezy, who is the man behind one of the greatest mixtape Blogspots in history—RecogTheReal—started a Soundcloud page earlier this year, and holy shit he’s been loading it more and more every week with nothing but mixtape classics. Craziness! And they’re all available for free download, too. Plus I like how he’s formatted them to be one long stream, so you can just press play and let them ride without having mad individual tracks clog up your iTunes. So if you want individual gems, go peep our Twelve Jewelz series. But this here right here is for the true mixtape heads who want that full, uncut raw.

With so much material on E-Feezy’s page to enjoy—from compilation mixtapes to vintage NYC underground radio show recordings to instrumental butters—I thought it might be fun for our latest Mixtape Memories feature to sift through his stash and highlight a dozen classic artist mixtapes that you can enjoy this Labor Day Weekend. Some of these were compiled by DJs without the artist’s involvement, some were collaborative efforts, and some are “Best of” style. But one thing they all have in common is simple—fire. Read/stream/download below, and big shout to the homie DJ E-Feezy from RecogTheReal for his dedication to the culture!

Well this is kind of surprising. Mister Cee is apparently resigning from Hot 97 and today will be his last day. Flex announced it via Instagram earlier this afternoon, and Cee seemingly confirmed it with post you see below. There has been no word on why the NYC radio icon is leaving the station, but as I’m sure you recall he almost left back in September 2013 after a couple of arrests involving transgender prostitutes came to light. He was eventually convinced to stay and has remained relatively drama free since. We’ll update when we know more, or if he or the station releases a statement. Continue reading this post…

Mister Cee’s Interview with GQ

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Mister Cee spoke to GQ staff writer Zach Baron back in October for a piece that just made it onto the magazine’s website. It’s not an especially illuminating interview, there isn’t a whole lot here we didn’t already know, but it’s important because it’s the first time Cee is talking about his proclivity for transexual prostitutes with a journalist since his famous sit-down with Ebro back in September.

Here he comments on how he feels Biggie would react to the controversy were he still alive:

In our booth at the restaurant, I ask if Biggie would’ve understood, had this happened twenty years ago. “Oh, I know that,” Cee says instantly. “I know Big stands next to me. I have no question in my mind.”

I ask him why he’s so sure, and he says it’s because they were friends, first, but also because hip-hop is such a transparent thing to those who’ve lived it: “You know who’s phony, you know who’s hypocritical, you know who’s real.” Cee is real.
