Actual Proof-Still Hotter Than July (Mixtape)


Got my sweaty little mitts (it’s been incredibly humid in Barcelona) on Act Proof’s latest free offering in association with DJBooth.net and some other people. As I tweeted an hour ago, it’s well worth getting your hands on it too if you’re really into your hip-hop as it’s got solid lyricism and enjoyable production in abundance.

“The project features 18 original joints from emcees Sundown and Enigma, including reader-approved leak “Get It Done.”

Joining Actual Proof on the guest tip throughout Still Hotter Than July are Thee Tom Hardy, Sean Boog,Rapsody, Chuuwee, GQ, Drique London, Median and Bluu Suede. In addition to instrumentals by 9th Wonder and Enigma the set features beats by fellow Soul Council members E. Jones, Ka$h, Khrysis and Amp.”

Actual Proof-The Talented Tenth


A nice little addition to hip-hoppers’ collections up for grabs here. I’d never head of Act Proof, a North Carolina duo consisting of Sundown and Enigma, until I saw a few rumblings around these parts over the past few weeks of their upcoming project overseen by prestigious beat-maker 9th Wonder.

“The project is comprised of two sides – The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Experience and The Malcolm X Experience – that will both take listeners on a peaceful journey and give them a sense of urgency.”

If you’re into the ‘newer school’ of lyricists such as Lupe Fiasco, Torae or Skyzoo with jazz and funk-sampling beats, you’ll enjoy this. Get your hands on The Talented Tenth, for free, here.

EDIT: This is a very good, well put-together project with some brilliantly crafted instrumentals and addictive lyricism.
