In My Mind teams Nottz up with other sample-slicing virtuoso producers with worker bee rap skills like Pete Rock, Black Milk, and the Alchemist, as well as MCs Royce Da 5’9, Asher Roth, and Pusha T, all the while, circling a “real hip-hop” sound (sorry!) that isn’t afraid to deviate from the formula: A dreamy country-soul sample bookends the title track; crunchy metal guitars rip through “Blast That”; blaxploitation score congos vibrate at footwork-speed on “The 1Ne”; there’s widescreen Rick Ross-ian yacht rap on “You Need This Music (Remix),” featuring Pusha and Dwele; and on “Cars,” the sound of a car honking is used like an old-school soul horn stab.

Here’s the 1988 Tougher Than Leather, the cult favorite Run DMC movie directed by Rick Rubin.
The action starts off similar to The Blues Brothers, with DMC getting out of prison (a crazy voice-over courtesy of PE’s Flavor Flav quickly setting the mood of the picture). He’s met outside the prison gates by Run and the late Jam Master Jay. From there, things evolve into a cross between a blaxploitation flick spoofing the evils of the music industry and modern film noir… albeit with a plot as challenging as a Scooby-Doo episode. Attacked for being vulgar, sexist and racist, the film does boast some cool camera work and lighting, cameos galore (Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons both appear in acting roles as well as ’80s porn star Lois Ayres), plenty of dumb jokes that might be funny under the right circumstances and some cool-as-hell on-stage performances, including Run-D.M.C. rippin’ through “Beats to the Rhyme,” Slick Rick doing “Treat Her Like A Prostitute” and the Beastie Boys’ rendition of the rare track “Desperado.”

Brooklyn-born, Vermont Transplant and now Colorado resident BURNTmd borrows a chapter from Kool G. Rap’s rap pages with the Reef Ali produced “Smooth Criminal Part II,” the latest leak off his forthcoming project Not So Black & White, which drops next Tuesday, June 12th. Ironically, another Juice Crew member makes a fitting contribution to the song’s smoothness, with a guest feature from the Queensbridge battle legend, Craig G. For good measure, Europe’s 1991 DMC Champion DJ Grazzhoppa cuts up a scratch chorus which swipes a bevy of quotables from Nas, Eazy-E, Big Daddy Kane and more.
