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!

Sound (& Video) Table 8/20/09

For today’s edition of the Sound Table I had to include some new videos storming the innanets. Up top is “Run This Town” from Jay-Z’s upcoming LP Blueprint 3 featuring Rihanna & Kanye West, down below is the remix to Jamie Foxx’s “Digital Girl” with ‘Yeezy, The-Dream & Drake.

After that are some gems, including a demo tape from Eminem’s early years and the album that B.o.B. should put out if Atlantic wasn’t bullshitting taking their sweet time. It reminds me of Little Brother’s Getback all over again.

Ready? Enjoy!
