Fabolous "Walk in New York" - holy smokes, it's like 1993 all over again with this new mixtape banger from the F-A-B-O. This is some real New York ish without the tired Diamond D retread beats. He's still got it when he's not robbing (allegedly), getting shot and arrested. (alternate link: Zshare stream/download)
The internet is goin' NUTS!!! Just sent to me: Jim Jones & Dame Dash “Kingdom Done (Jay-Z Dis)” - little did I know how prophetic (or ironic?) the title of my last post was gonna be. (alternate link: Zshare stream/download)
Related: Jim Jones "We Fly High (New York Giants Remix)" - Jimmy's making a real claim for being the next King of NY, sorry Jay, 50 and Nas. (first spotted via Still Listen....) (alternate link: Zshare stream/download)
Papoose "Air it Out (Chicken Noodle Soup Freestyle)" - from the 2nd Place Is The First Loser mixtape by Kay Slay. This has been bangin' on Enuff's Hot 97 afternoon drivetime mixshow for a couple weeks now but only started circulating now. (alternate links: zshare stream/download | real audio stream via HipHopHavoc)
Papoose-related: dude is so hot (no Foley) that even muh'f-ckin Eskay's commenters got that piff; Get links for free downloads of Papoose mixtapes and the unreleased, "lost" Elektra debut album by the Clipse, Exclusive Audio Footage right here.
And via the excellent Palms Out Sounds blog:
- Vintage DJ Red Alert mixing hip hop and reggae live on 98.7 Kiss FM Pt.1 c. 1989.
- MP3's of samples used in classic Pete Rock-produced tracks.
It's All Good - a coffee table photobook of images of street life in NYC taken by Serbian-born Boogie.
While finally: born and bred New Yorker Justin Bua's "hip hop" art or his "Distorted Urban Realism" style of art as his bio describes it.
