Nakon sedam sušnih godina 43/23 barabe su opet sa nama. Novi album ponovo okupljenog Bad Copy trojica, nazivom Krigle, donosi pregršt ludih rima i bitova kakve samo barabe mogu smisliti. Njihov zadnji nastup 02.02.2007. u Zagrebu, napunio je klub do čepa i uz dvosatnu vožnju donio jedan od boljih hip hop koncerata te godine. Nakon što napunite grla i uši novim Kriglama i dobro savladate gradivo, pozivamo vas 18.05. u klub Attack na prvi zajednički nastup Bad Copy-a i promociju njiiiihovog novog albuma Krigle. Spremite se na dozu prljavog beogradskog humora iz glasova neponovljivog Ajsa,Timbeta i Wiklera…

This is quite a find. We gave you a preview a few days ago, but now we have the whole collection of rare and unreleased Kanye demo tracks, circa 2001. Ripped and emancipated by a contributor at the KanyeToThe forums, the tape is 15 tracks of previously unheard Ye tracks and some early demo versions of songs that would go on to help define Kanye’s career, such as All Falls Down and Jesus Walks.

stand up remix

With the fifth and final leak before Marco Polo drops his highly-anticipated free-LP, Newport Authority 2, Marco states “I did a remix for “Stand Up” off the brand new Adrian Younge presents The Delfonics project (who am I big fan of, y’all should cop anything he’s a part of.) Adrian sent me the album early and I made this beat. Tragedy was originally gonna lay down one verse on this on some freestyle sh*t, but once I started hearing his bars I refused to let this be a one verse song! Three verses later and appropriate hook by Slap aka Fizzy Womack aka Lil Fame we have the “Stand Up” remix. Tragedy will have an alternate version of this song on his upcoming album as well. Now please enjoy the final leak from Newport Authority 2!”
