Frequent visitors of the site (real sorry for the ridiculous amount of slacking fam…) know that we DREAD these kinds of posts, but almost a whole week out of the game leaves us with no choice… A slew of jams for you to pick and choose from including tracks from *deep breathe – 6th Sense, A&E (Masta Ace & Edo G’s collabrative project), Brother Ali (alongside Joell Ortiz & Freeway), cARTer (with a guest spot from the Underground King, Bun B), Consequence (suprisingly featuring Rick Ross and production from Statik Selektah), CurT@!N$, Don Notz (guest featuring Ali Vegas & Torae), Ice Cube, the homie J.A.M.E.S Watts, a few joints from CuDi, Lee Bannon alongside U-N-I, Talib Kweli, Zion I and Sha Stimuli, new shit from Ladies Love Cool James, the final version of the Madonna x Lil Wayne song, a collab between N.O.R.E. and Bun B, OC & AG, Raekwon, new heat off of Royce’s Street Hop, Saigon, Sean P!, unreleased Snoop from the Death Row days, some new Term, The Black Keys featuring Jim Jones and Mos Def (ridiculous), U-N-I featuring Theo and CurT, Nino Bless & Rass Kass and finally Vibes w/ Royce. – exhale*
Jern Eye (who I’ve never had the chance to look into, but sounds real dope from this) recruits Mistah Fabby Davis and Zion I to rhyme along side him over a Jake One-strumental. Now really how can you go wrong with all that?
A white rabbit riding bmx + dancing women in tutus + some heavy 808s and dope lyrics = Zion I’s new video. Here is the OKP world premiere for Zion I’s Alice In Wonderland themed video, Geek To The Beat (dir. M.A.Y.O.). Zion I’s new album, The Takeover is in stores now.
The freshness right here, I messed with Zion I back in the day, but somehow I slowly stopped following them, my mistake. The Takeover in stores now!
Download this immediately and play it at high volume. Back in the days when I was a teenager… I bumped A Tribe Called Quest’s The Low End Theory so much that I could practically recite the shit for you, so you should understand how stoked I am to hear De La’s rendition (yes, thats right) of the opening track to one of the greatest album of all time. For those who need some education, Posdnous does some explaining over @ HHDX for the upcoming J Period project entitled, The [Abstract] Best which features the works of Q-Tip; new material, rare material, and exclusive collorations from the likes of Busta Rhymes, Pharoahe Monch, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Zion I and others.
Off the upcoming Street Fighter II HD Underground Remix mixtape come new joints from Hiero, Funk Doc and Zion I. The mixtape is being released to compliment the re-release of Street Fighter II. I’ve added a zip that has the joints below and also has 2 more joints featuring DJ Q-Bert and Mistah F.A.B. with DJ Toure courtesy of VegaTheChosen. That Redman joint is nuts.
