News + Buncha NEW Shit

First off, if you haven't seen it yet (scroll down), I recently found out that DJ Shadow produced Keak Da Sneak and Turf Talk - 3 Freaks. At first it was mere rumor, but Chuy Gomez from 106 KMEL has gone on the record during today's morning show and announced that DJ Shadow did, in fact, produce 3 Freaks. I will keep the track online indefinitely, so just scroll down to get it.

Now, the bad news. The Team's highly anticipated album, "World Premiere", has been pushed back once again, this time to early Spring 2006, which is around the same time Clyde Carson's solo album will drop. Reason for the delay? Kaz Kayza, member of The Team, has a warrant out for his arrest and will be turning himself in shortly (if he hasn't already). No idea what he got hammed up for, but The Team is already spreading the word to FREE KAZ. It's not all bad, however, The Team are planning on releasing a "street album" sometime this Winter to keep fans sedated. Now, on to the new tracks:

J. Valentine feat. Bailey - Go Dumb AKA I'm Sprung (Bay Area remix)
If you listen to any clear channel radio station that plays rap or R&B you have no doubt been privvy to the T-Pain song "I'm Sprung". Well, heres the Yay Area's take on it. I'm going to tell you straight up: This Song Sucks. Having said that, it's a really fucking funny song and it serves to prove that irony is very fucking relative. This track is something that thugs would bump and sing-a-long with ironically, whereas hipsters would take it seriously and not want to be caught dead listening to it. Oh, and don't even bother listening to this if you're only interested in Bailey's flow, homeboy is on this song for all of 15 seconds.

J. Nash feat. Mistah F.A.B. & Clyde Carson - Beat That
J. Nash is a new R&B singer recently signed to Thizz Entertainment. This track is produced by Droop-E, and its nothing special really. Seriously, Droop-E needs to move on from that whistle, shit is sounding played out. Clyde Carson's flow steals the show, if you can call it that, its a pretty mediocre track all around.

Young Dru feat. Keak Da Sneak & Messy Marv - Yadida Whaa Whaa
Slumpin beat right here. Tight, sleazy synths over pounding bass drum/brass. Not really feelin the generic workstation strings though. Keak makes the song, utilizing his trademark voice to spit ferocious nonesense on the chorus. Young Dru spits hard but average, while Messy Marv comes tight.

Baby Face Assassins feat. Mistah F.A.B. & San Quinn - Dread Headz
Really hyphy slapper right here, three note synth stab progression, background bleeps, scraper skirtin sound effects. Mistah F.A.B. comes tight, but Quinn let me down on this one, it sounds like he wasn't even feeling the song-- "No dreads in my head its a low-cut ceasar". Regardless, its a knocker and is a nice little tune for a sunday drive, if that should involve ghostriding your skraper whilst your peers go dumb out the window.

Keep it bookmarked, bitches, cause you know I'm sittin on heat.

hahahha can't believe you don't like the "I'm Sprung Bay remix"! i admit it was weird when i first heard it but it became hella catchy and i've been listening to it so much these past days whether it's on kmel or on my comp. it has the whole bay concept too. "go duuumb, dawg i'm hyphyy got my white tee and my stunnaz on, gold ones and i can't go wronggg" ahaha funny stuff and damn, i was expecting bailey's verse to be longer too..

that I'm sprung remix reminds me of this HAWK and Lil Flip cover of marvin gaye's Lets Get it On, expect they were singing about come down the slab with the one you love. It was pretty fucking great.

that sprung remix still sucks though, but it did make me smile

haha, man, I gotta say it again, your writing on this shit is great ... most MP3 blogs I'm just like "Fuck it, get to the music", but I always read this thing through before I download anything.

And I'll also side with Jayo about Droop-E ... dude is capable of making some fucking great beats ("Da Dummy" was brilliant ... genius use of the tom-toms (does anyone else find it odd that Pharell is suddenly using them now?), and that Mossie tracks bumps real hard), but I think he's spreading himself too thin. I guess time will tell if he's a one-trick pony or if he has the versatility of, say, Rick Rock.

And am I the only one that thinks San Quinn has kinda fell off lately? He hasn't really done anything too inspiring for some time now. Too bad, too; it really seemed like the ball was in his court.

Anyhow, thanks for all the news and the load of songs; I'm still grabbing most of it so I'll probably hit the blog up later with some comments on the songs themselves.
