Tiye Phoenix – Down (The Armageddon Theme)

Tiye Phoenix

Here’s a fresh leak by the homegirl Tiye Phoenix, who should have been on your radar long before now with last year’s Half Woman, Half Amazin’.

“Down (The Armageddon Theme)” is off Kevin Nottingham, DJ Booth & HipHopDX‘s recent mixtape HiPNOTT Records 2010 Takeover. Scoop the full tape at DJ Booth here.

Chalk this track up as another example of why I call Tiye the best up-and-coming female in the game (Nicki who?). Not only does she spit hot fiyah (no Dylan), she also controlled the MPC and flexed her vocal muscles on the hook. Look for something special soon here at HTT featuring none other than Tiye P.

Shouts to Kev for sending this one over, Enjoy!

DJ Heat – Late Night With The Roots (Mixtape)

Late Night With The Roots (Mixtape)

Questo & Black keep their vision to the sky, the rest have their eyes on the road. Fitting.

I’ve been a long-time, outspoken fan and critic of the Legendary Roots Crew. When they became the house band for Fallon’s new gig after Def Jam put so much time into marketing their CDs (#sarcasm), I was ecstatic that they’re hard work was finally recognized on a larger scale. Plus, after raiding the OkayPlayer store yesterday during its 50% discount sale, it’s only right I post this.

The generous DJ Heat recently compiled all of The Roots’ live renditions to date with guests of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Performances include Q-Tip, Public Enemy, Mos Def, Luda, Ghost, Rae, and, well you can read the tracklist for yourself. It showcases the Philly band’s single “How I Got Over” in its pure form, plus that Clipse set is damn near phenomenal.

Download link and track list below. Shout to 2DB and Heather for the heads up. Artwork by Shake. Oh, and props to the only whiteboy in the group, bassist Owen Biddle, for holding it down for us soulful yet melanin-deficit brothas, Enjoy!

New Video from RJD2’s The Colossus & Upcoming Tour Dates

Other than the slight weakness of the poppy The Third Hand, Ramble John “RJD2” Krohn has maintained a strong track record throughout his almost decade-long tenure.

I was thoroughly impressed by 2009’s Tin Foil Hat EP (earning spot #23 on my list of the Best Instrumental Albums of 2009), a swift restoration of the Ohio producer’s instrumental soundscapes introduced to the masses on ’02’s Dead Ringer and ’04’s Since We Last Spoke.

Hopefully, RJD2 sticks to his guns on his upcoming album The Colossus, coming soon on his recently-created RJ’s Electrical Connections label. Judging by the leaks, it should be a sweet return-to-form that fans like myself have been requesting for years.

He’s also created an iPhone app alongside Future Audio Workshop calledTouch Mix where fans can remix cuts and hear samples from the upcoming LP. One question though, where’s the love for us BlackBerry users, mayne?!

Anyways, check out his video up top for “Let There Be Horns” directed by Thom Glunt for a preview of what to expect. He’s going on tour beginning in Washington D.C. this weekend, so I’ve posted the dates below.

The Colossus drops Tuesday, January 19th. Shout to the man himself for the heads up. Support the artists, Enjoy!

Hold the Throne Presents Writers Build: The Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2009

The Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2009

It’s all come down to this. All the effort, pain, and struggle from artists and bloggers alike culminates now as three writers’ crown the Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2009.

Aight, so I’m exagerrating a lil’ bit. And, admittedly, I’m lying through my teeth. We actually still have some more lists after this. But this is like the Rose Bowl – the grandaddy of ’em all!

I went kinda crazy with this one, because this type of ish excites me. It was an exceptional year for individual tracks, as we pulled songs from albums, mixtapes, CD singles, and even vinyl to present you with 3 separate lists of dopeness. These aren’t your averages lists, as you’ll see when you peruse them. We flipped it differently, I hope you’ll have fun while listening.

My fellow contributors this time are:

Jaap van der Doelen, The Rap Up Contributing Writer & Host of WildStyle FM on Maasland FM

J Nicholson, Cornerstone Promotion National Mixshow/ Lifestyle Marketing

I’ve hooked up download links below for you to scoop each list in its entirety. If you’d rather me upload each track, well too bad! drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do.

Dysposable Heroes Presents – Genius vs. Genius (An Evening with Ray Charles & GZA)

Genius vs Genius

I haven’t listened to this yet, however it’s a combo of two legendary artists in my humble opinion, so I’m posting it for the HTT faithful.

J-Mass and Zero One, collectively dubbed the Dysposable Heroes, crafted this blend-tape. Here’s the deal:

This is a collection of 12 tracks of GZA remixes of his classic material behind heavy samples of classic and hard to find Ray Charles albums, with all production done by Gutter Water Music’s very own Dysposable Heroes. This is a concept remix project, with no ties to the artists or their respective labels, estates, etc. and is for promotional use only. Please burn this and give it to anyone you think might enjoy it!

Wu-heads and soul supporters alike should dig it. From the tracklist itself, I see some of my choice GZA jams like “Publicity,” “Fame” and “Triumph” blended with selections from Charles’ soulful blues discography.

For more info about Dysposable Heroes, peep their website.

Much respect due to my homie BMUSE at Always Hustle for spotting this, Enjoy!

Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek) – The RE:Union mixed by Statik Selektah

The RE:Union

For the first official mixtape post of the year, we’ve got a heater compliments of Talib Kweli, Hi-Tek and Statik Selektah.

The Massachusetts-bred DJ/Producer spun together a fresh mix of new, old and rare Reflection Eternal material, including the banger “Just Begun” with Jay Electronica, J. Cola & Mos Def.

I’m dumb excited to hear how Kweli & Hi-Tek sound on the new jawn “Hang Ups” and how Statik mixed this particular tape, since he’s a beast when it comes to sequencing and scratching.

Check back for more updates on the upcoming RE album and any leaks that hit the ‘net.

Shout to Year of the Blacksmith for the heads up, Enjoy!
