Mixtape Download: Crooked I “The Block Obama”

Here is another mixtape from one of the best from the west, Crooked I.  He has put out a mixtape called “The Block Obama”.  Maybe it’s politics or maybe he is getting blackballed, but it’s no reason why he shouldn’t have a major deal with some label.  Most of this is straight heat, with the exception of a few duds. check it out and tell me what you think.

50 Cent to make “Before I Self Destruct” movie with album

50 Cent’s new album Before I Self Destruct, set for a December 9th release, will be accompanied by a movie by the same name that will be directed and produced by 50.  The movie will not be autobiographical, but will aim to illustrate what he is referring to as “urban life” in a new light.  Tracks from the album will not be included in the movie.  Instead, he penned a separate score for the film and had unsigned artists record the vocals.

Naledge Drops a Mixtape!

Just a few months off of their latest album release, Kidz in the Hall are putting in heavy work. After a run on Rock the Bells, they’re planning their own tour and Naledge is working on some solo music. Their latest project is a little play on conscious rap, which is a mixtape entitled Naledge Presents: Welcome to the Brainiac Society. Check out features from Chip tha Ripper, 6th Sense, Mickey Factz, and of course Naledge. Here’s some thoughts from Naledge on the project: “Welcome To Brainiac Society is a compilation or collection of music that I like, and that I might have made or contributed to. There’s no real rhyme or reason to it. I think a lot of people got confused when I started repping Brainiac Society as my crew or my label cause I think a lot of people took it as a separation from Kidz In The Hall, which is not what it is. It’s just me giving a platform to people that I like, and I want it to be looked at moreso as a Native Tongues type of thing than as a Bad Boy type of thing. It’s just a group of people that make dope music and appreciate the artistry of Hip Hop and doesn’t have to necessarily mean they are rappers. They can sing, they can make beats, DJ, whatever. It’s about the creative renaissance that’s going on within Hip Hop all over the nation. These are people that I met in my travels who I feel are dope and they inspire me. We just get together and we collectively make art…It’s also a platform for me to put out Fooch who is my artist. It’s no departure from Kidz In The Hall. Me and Double O are such creative beings in general, that we don’t know how to operate without 30 things going on at once. We’re very much multi-taskers and we’ve always been that way. We try to have our hands in everything.” Download, preview links, and  tracklist below. “Find My Way Freestyle”- Preview Link “Naledge Vs.
