Man, Mick Boogie and Terry Urban are killin’ it. Viva la Hova, then 1988, now a mixtape that offers a fresh new take on some of the pop rap of 2008.
This 2008 wrap up mix tape is just…well freakin sick. It’s a clever combo of mashups and remixes that blend between tracks so well that it’s really worth listening from start to finish. Amazing stuff. Normally I don’t like mix tapes b/c it’s a lot of self promotion and this is no exception as there are plenty of “The Commissioner!” and that annoying girl saying “Terrrrrrrrrry Urrrrrrrban”, but this mixtape is so nice that I don’t mind it.
I want to make sure to give him credit, so I’ll post the url of one of his blogs.
Look at this track list:

I’ve been checking his “top 25 hip hop albums of 2008” post. This guy has listed some solid hip hop albums of 2008 and has posted links to download each one via mediafire. I didn’t want to steal his thunder…so I give credit where credit is due.

So I’m sure you may have heard this before since it’s been out for 2 months, but I’m really enjoying the mashup of Coldplay and Jay-Z. Mick Boogie and Terry Urban are redic mash / mixtape fiends, and this is some quality work. It ain’t just mixing a Jay-Z verse over looped samples; rather it is a great understanding of both genres. Some the tracks are just sick…on The Reverse Fix, Mick Boogie clearly uses an old school 808 / Beastie Boys beat that you wouldn’t think would work with Coldplay’s Fix You.
What I admire most about this mashup is that Terry Urban and Mick Boogie actually got the blessings from both Jay and Coldplay. PLUS if you visit Mick Boogie’s blog for Viva, he WANTS you to download for no charge: http://www.vivalahova.com/. I think one of his tracks actually got on the deluxe or whateva new version of Coldplay’s latest album on iTunes.
So if you haven’t downloaded this yet, please give it a shot. The album sorta flows like a mixtape (lots of blends into each track), but if you want to hear something different, check it out:

So I’m giving this blogging thing another try. Looks like xanga has been replaced by a new blogger and I’m getting on board! Hehe…
But I still like Tabulas. Go Roy!
I’d like to dedicate this blog primarily to post links to download music.
I’ve been digging a lot of old school rap, particularly Brand Nubian, Poor Righteous Teachers, and Black Moon.
