New Souls of Mischief LP Drops Today

After almost a decade-long hiatus, Left Coast veteran crew Souls of Mischief returns today with Montezuma’s Revenge.

A-Plus, Tajai, Opio and Phesto recorded the album in the lab with none other than producer Prince Paul and long-time collaborator Domino. Apparently, they rented a house to isolate in order to focus on making the album.

[Paul] had concepts, and its good to have an outside perspective – it was a great process.


I checked it out briefly last night, and it sounds like their strategy paid off as this might be a late addition to my end-of-the-year list of best albums.

Head over to Amazon to pick up your copy, and be a part of the Souls resurrection. What, you thought I wasn’t gon’ make you work for good music? Ha!

Check out a video of illustrator Steven Lopez (he drew this picture of Erykah Badu) working on the sweet cover for Montezuma’s Revenge down below. I also provided a sneak peak with the lead single “Tour Stories” and a recent leak “Proper Aim.” Don’t say I never gave you nothin’!

Shouts to Hurricane for the MP3’s and Michelle for the video. Also, look for a HTT and HHIR collab coming to an e-hood near you soon. Enjoy!

We’ve got two new fresh tracks from some artists that might fly under your radar but definitely deserve your attention.

First up is a new cut from San Diego soul-hop collective Deep Rooted featuring Exile behind the boards. The crew’s feel-good music continues on “Closer,” with a dope melody sung by Just Brea and verses from Johaz and Mr. Brady. Be on the lookout for more leaks from their album D.E.E.P. R.O.O.T.E.D. on Clear Label Records, commanded by Tajai of Souls of Mischief. Shouts to Audible Treats for the MP3.

Next up is some close fam of HTT, new music from production duo Keelay & Zaire featuring Slo-Mo. “Pimp Dreams” boasts the unique technique that Kee & Zee debuted earlier this year on Ridin’ High, one of the best projects of the first half of ’09 (available now on iTunes). This particular song is off the Potholes In My Blog Presents… Transmitting Live Volume One mixed by DJ Traumatix. Shouts to the good homie Reyn for the audio, Enjoy!
