Rappin Ass Thursdays #15 – Mixtape Edition

Posted on Sep 10th, 2009 by Nick Catchdubs

Before I get into it, let me just say that my favorite shit this week is Killer Mike’s Underground Atlanta compilation. It’s a two-disc behemoth and all 30+ tracks can’t be winners, but the majority of them are, and the best ones (Pill, Travis Porter, Trillville, Da Backwudz, and of course Mike himself) make for one of my favorite records this year. You can get it on vinyl too!

Ok, onto the links. Switching it up from one-off tunes this week to talk projects from DJ Boogie Boy, Fashawn & Alchemist, Dubstep LA, J Futuristic, and Trick Daddy. Now lets burn some CDs! Read More

Nick Catchdubs & Daytona Remix “Paypur”

Posted on Sep 9th, 2009 by Mr Goldbar

Nick Catchdubs turned Udachi & Jubilee’s club grinder “Paypur” into a half-time rap choon and enlisted The Kid Daytona to do his thing on the verses. It goes off!

Download their “Paypur” remix here (along with clean version for the radio DJs and the original for the ravers) and purchase these and all the other remixes on Beatport.

The single comes backed by b-side “Smoke Rings,” for which there is an appropriately spazzy video (it involves aliens, weed, and a shark costume) that you can watch here.
