Sinoć su na MTV stageu u sklopu varaždinskog Špancirfesta nastupili grupe Connect i Bolesna Braća. Dok je koncert Connectovaca prošao bez poteškoća, na polovici nastupa Bolesnika umro je razglas i time nepovratno prekinuo dobru zabavu. Dio atmosfere provjerite u ovom prilogu ili na fotkama u nastavku posta.

00 k def   most underrated K Def   Most Underrated (Mixtape)

It’s finally time to premier this fantastic official compilation showcasing K-Def’s legacy in the proper way it deserves. This is something we’ve been working on for a good while, making sure everything is 100% as good as possible; it’s a collaboration with Redefinition Records, Justice Equality Supreme at 2DopeBoyz, Chris Moss at Al Lindstrom and myself here at The Lost Tapes.

As you should be aware of by now, the legendary producer recently joined Redefinition Records and released the incredible instrumental 7″ single “For Def’s Sake”/“Time’s Change”. K-Def is currently working on an EP with Raw Poetic and has recently recorded songs with Rob-O so the future promises great things. Aight, so together with the compilation “The Most Underrated”, the homie Chris Moss conducted an interview with ‘Def where he broke down all the classics we featured on the tape. It’s a great companion piece to read while you’re listening to the 1 hours worth of incredible productions featuring artists like Lords Of The Underground, Tragedy, Keith Murray, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Ghostface, Real Live, Lord Tariq and many more. Even if you never even heard the works of Kevin Hansford before, I strongly recommend listening to the full tape and I can almost guarantee a new found fandom of the man.

Tracklist & download link after the jump.

swizz beatz studio Swizz Beatz Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records (Part 1)

After over a decade in the game, Swizz Beatz is as hot as he ever was. The man born Kasseem Dean has been making power moves all summer as he was recently named VP of Creative Design at Lotus, dropped his own shoe with Reebok called the Kamikaze, and produced some bangers alongside Kanye West for ‘Ye and Jay-Z’s new album, Watch The Throne.

Business moves aside, Swizz is still best known for his music. That’s why we got down with the One Man Band for part one of our two part series to talk about some of the classic records he’s produced. Part one focuses mostly on his early career in the late ’90s/early 2000s and the work he did as a member of Ruff Ryders.

Not only did Swizz tell us about producing some of his signature songs like “Money Cash Hoes” and “Ruff Ryders Anthem” but he also dispelled the urban legend that he was once sued by Casio, explained why he feels DMX and the Ruff Ryders movement is underrated, and how the Roc-A-Fella/Ruff Ryders beef affected his relationship with Jay-Z. IT’S SHOWTIME!
