That's a pretty nice looking lineup. The 2012 Cypress Hill Smokeout Festival will be held on Saturday, March 3rd at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA. For more information and to purchase tickets, head over to SmokeoutFestival.com.
Both songs express a different side of N-Pire's versatile taste and style of music. "Cancer" is a twist of east and west styles of rap, while "Nash Pit" is a energetic cross genre song, combining rap and hard rock. N-Pire's musical influence spreads thru multiple genres of music, expect to see more genre blends, and out the box samples on the "Road 2 LND" and on "legends Never Die"

DJ sourMILK came up with a pretty dope idea for mixtapes, check it out:
So I got this idea last year and I wanted to see if I could actually follow through with it the whole year. I wanted to do a Hip-Hop Yearbook. Starting with 1989, every month, release a new mix for a new year. Jan is 89, Feb is 90, etc. Now I know what I’m getting myself into with all the Hip-Hop nerds out there. You guys are gonna tear me apart (selection wise). “How did you not put ____ on the 1990 mix?!” I’m just picking songs that I currently have in my Serato, give me a break. I’m sure there’s gonna be songs that I’m missing, but f**k you. I’m doing the mix, NOT YOU! You’re also gonna say, “But that song wasn’t released in 89!” For example, “Fight the Power” was on Fear of a Black Planet and that came out in 1990. Yes, it was. It was also on the Do the Right Thing Soundtrack though, which was released in 1989. Anyway, enough explaining. I’ll post a new mix (hopefully) at the end of every month until the year is over. I’m starting with 1989, so that download link is below. Please feel free to pass along, blog, blast, or delete if you don’t like it. THANK YOU!Download: DJ sourMILK - #HipHopYearbook: 1989 (Mixtape)

I hear this show didn't go too well...
Last Wednesday before his show at 330 Ritch with Blu, I got to chat with one of my favorite producers, Exile. We spoke about the craziest thing he ever sampled, his second album with Fashawn "The Ecology", a new project as Emanon with Aloe Blacc and a Dag Savage project (including a free mixtape beforehand). We also spoke about working early with Miguel, his phone call with Jay Electronica, and his fascination with the radio.
J. Lately and Nima Fadavi's collaborative album, One Way Ticket, is finally ready for free download. The album is full of original material. The production is handled by Nima Fadavi. Guest features include El Prez, Jern Eye, and J.Good. Download the album below.
The album "ONE WAY TICKET" tells a story we can all relate to, of wanting something or to get somewhere so bad that you're willing to leave everything else behind in order to pursue your one true dream.
