» Clipse mixtape: We Got it 4 Cheap Vol. 2

Clipse

Much of the work done on this site over the last week or so was done with this mixtape on loop (and it still is), bronchitis so we thought it only right you cop a blast too. You might be weary of drug-pushing related rap after a barrage over the last few years, mind and be warned, that is pretty much the only topic here, but despite that, an old dog has been taught new tricks.

There’s no doubting that the Clipse and co. are on top of their lyric game, and here we get over 50 minutes of Pusha, Malice and their pals Ab-Liva and Sandman (collectively known as the Re-Up Gang, complete with neighbourhood nerd Pharrell) dropping hot and complex verses over some classic beats: The Corner, Daytona 500, Put You on the Game and (don’t be put off) some G-unit beats… which gain new life when these guys get hold of them, all produced by Clinton Sparks who refrains from shouting a lot and gets on with with a light touch of scratching/breakbeating.

Enough babble, here’s the music:

These mixtapes are available for free download on the Clinton Sparks website – most of the other tapes look very dodgy/boring, just head for the Clipse ones. (There’s Vol. 1 as well, which is OK, but not as good). You can also grab it from Odeo. Photo by Angry Citizen.

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    Andy, Colin, Richard, and special guest John Morgan go in for a bit of the old ultra-violence in a discussion of Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange (1971). Can one truly be moral without the capacity for rape and mayhem? Is "Alex Delarge" simply a sociopath and thug . . . or an avatar of the übermensch in an egalitarian age? http://www.radixjournal.com/vanguard-radio/podcast/2013/8/14/napoleon-dynamite »
  • The Beat Magistral (Con Anima) (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    A massive deep dark flowing mix by Dj Heisa. A beautiful trip through abstract hip hop, jazz, classical and folk music. This man makes classical, jazz and folk music sounds like hip hop. Tracklist at http://bit.ly/1NmgzU »
  • The Glitch Mob - Crush Mode (40 min mix) (mp3)

    Go get Adobe Flash Player!

    A huge heavy mix of massive bass and chopped up beats from LA's premier glitched-out electro hip hop crew . You just imagine seeing and hearing this played LOUD in a club - it would blow your mind. More of their music at http://theglitchmob.com/ »
