Vodpod videos no longer available.

“Chinese food is a gourmet meal, that general tao chicken is always real.”

After a quick visit to the Three/21 website, I see they decided to drop an unreleased video they shot with Joell for my favorite part of his 125 series, check what the people over @ Three/21 had to say…

Here is an unreleased video from the Three/21 Archives of Joell Ortiz’s “125 Part 2 (Fresh Air)” which we shot a long ass time ago at a studio in Brooklyn. It was one of those moments where we tried to freestyle a concept and it turning into over 5 minutes of straight rapping into the camera. Not much else going on here but Joell is that rare breed of artist who has the charisma and energy to rap for that long, break into a smile, and love every minute of it. That’s Hip Hop people.

Mixtape: Hip Hop Update & DCToBC Present – Wale’s Road To Attention Deficit

I kinda just wanna chill, but I need to get all this blogging done, shouts to Elitaste who had this to day about the project…

With the release of his single, the announcement of his promo tour as well as the release date for his next official mixtape, “Back to the Feature,” we felt it was perfect timing to put together a nice compilation of Wale’s work up until this point.

This compilation mixtape includes work from his past mixtapes (Paint a Picture, Hate is the New Love, 100 Miles & Running, The Mixtape About Nothing), as well as some live material and rarer freestyles. This is similar in style to our Cudi mixtape, that’s done almost 11,500+ Downloads so far.

We set out to call it the “Road” to Attention Deficit (his upcoming Interscope album) because his career has been a journey thus far – so we included live audio from the UK, Australia, California, etc. that captures his journey around the world.

Big shout to our partner with this mixtape, Modi over DCtoBC, and to our graphics guys (and they should be yours too!) Eddy N Pizzle. Also thanks to HHU members Clif Soulo (who initially thought of the project), Tha Advakit and K-TO.
