So back in New Orleans this spring on a lazy Saturday afternoon, I was sitting, chilling, pondering life, when my boy Wyatt walks in and asks if I have heard the song Southernunderground by Cunninlynguists. Being the Hip-Hop head I am, of course I have heard the song. He then asks me to throw on the instrumental saying he has a little something to spit over it, I comply, and then he RIPS off slick, intelligent, and straight dope nasty line after line. Needless to say I was shocked and after that moment I have pestered him relentlessly to record the remixed track. After waiting nearly all summer, the track has finally been recorded, delivered to me and now I will be delivering it to you, the people.
Once again, this is a rough cut of a remix of Southernunderground, spit by my very talented homie Wyatt aka…Word the Villain. Listen to the track and you won’t need me to tell you to watch this kid, and watch closely. Can’t stop the groovement!

With all the classic Hip-Hop being posted recently, I figured to post a new school song with an old school sound. This remix of Classic has one of the fattest beats I’ve heard and the credit goes to DJ Premier from Houston, TX. One of the best, if not the best, Hip-Hop DJs of all time. He was a half of the duo Gangstarr for 12 years and has produced unbelievable tracks. Here is just another beautiful craft from Premier with some heavy hitters delivering the verses. Check it out for sure.

Tate Tucker has been featured by us before, but if you need a refresher he is a rising junior at Georgetown. One of my friends who goes to Georgetown alerted me to his music. This song samples a Beck song with the same title and really shows his lyrical abilities and laid back attitude. The production really takes advantage of the Beck sample while laying a funky beat over it. Don’t sleep on this kid, he is going places
Off the Canadian MC’s first album, A Sample and A Drum Machine, from 2002, Universal Love is an instant classic. With a horn sample from All You Need Is Love by the Beatles and some heart-felt lyrics from both parties, this is definitely one cut to keep in your records and fits the chill scene or party vibe. Check it out for sure if you dig real Hip-Hop.
