Sh*t You Forgot About: Episode 4


Isn’t it ironic that I forgot to post these?

To take the positives out of the situation, it does mean that the choices for this week’s episode sort of fall into my lap, based on old-school tracks I’ve found myself inexplicably listening to recently. The diversity you’ve come to expect (or at least did 2 months ago) from this series is still there, with 4 tracks in 4 different styles, and a nice mix of genres thrown in.

Head below for the latest instalment.

DJ Alexei Presents: Drizzy Settles The Score (Drake vs. The Fugees)


A mashup album that pairs Drake with The Fugees’ classic The Score. This mashup marks 15 years since the original release of The Score, and on the project Alexei updates the original Fugees’ album with new verses from Drake, as well as Andre 3000, Lil Wayne, Mos Def, Busta Rhymes, and Q-Tip.

“The Score is easily my favorite hip-hop album of all time and I still listen to it regularly, often before I sit down to work on my own music,” says Alexei. “To keep it exciting after 15 years, I decided to spice it up a bit. The Score has texture and soul that you don’t find much in today’s production. Put that and Drake together, and you have an incredibly fun listen.”

Should be  very interesting listen. Inevitably, there will be those that are ‘outraged’ at ‘desecrating’ a classic but give it a chance first as Alexei is certainly a talented dude, and I’m sure he’ll retain the essence and brilliance of the original.

Hip-Hop Collaboration Catch Up


Lots of big hip-hop acts involved in the three collaborations here, which I put on the backburner slightly.

All of them are solid, with the Diddy/Ross track boasting a relaxing beat that will win many admirers. The Busta/50 track has some real potential, with a slightly dark feel that suits all involved parties nicely. The final track is a remix of this one and has some great features, the highlight being Luda and Twista’s contributions.

Busta Rhymes-80′s Baby ft. Wyclef Jean & 50 Cent

Music

A phenomenally original post title for this collection of new music. New stuff from John Mayer, Game, Jamie Foxx/Justin Timberlake and much more from loads of big names after the click.

I need to stop having to resort to multiple track-filled posts and post this sh*t up when I get it, like I used to. Bad habits eh?

Wyclef and Eve Collaboration

UPDATE: It appears that I made an error, and this link previously took you to the Saigon track that was posted on the same day. Link is now updated. I dropped the ball, sorry.

A really enjoyable track from Wyclef, coming through on a really airy production which creates a very thoughtful atmosphere. It’s a piece of conscious music which really goes down smooth and should be checked out by anyone who’s a fan of some of Wyclef’s better material. Eve’s feature is decent too, and she fits in well on the track.
