It’s been a month since Dour Candy dropped and a year and some change since History Will Absolve Me, so it seems as good a time as any to thank our fans with some free music. Today’s digital 12″ comes in the form of two remixes, one from each album, both featuring friends old and new. Enjoy!
Willie Green has a lot of songs. A lot like “200 in the past six years” a lot.
That’s what Willie Green told Mo Niklz when he asked him to mix this compilation. The idea of narrowing down this many songs to the best 30 was a bit daunting; they finally threw in the towel, leaving the final track count at 38. But hell, if those last eight were so good that they couldn’t keep them off, hopefully you’ll find a way to forgive them.
From Willie Green, “I gave Mo a lot of license picking which songs would make it; I sent him a relatively short list of ‘must-includes’ and told him to surprise me. The result is a solid hour of some of my favorite cuts, along with some unheard gems, featuring Junclassic, Warren Britt, the Bronx up-and-comer Deshawn Supreme, and rap legend General Steele of Boot Camp Clik.”
These are songs Willie Green either produced or remixed. Every beat here is produced by Willie Green. The download includes liner notes with stories about each song. We hope you enjoy…
On August 31st, two of New York’s most celebrated new lyricists will be putting an exclamation mark on the summer, live at Public Assembly in Brooklyn. Since the February release of his sophmore LP, Grief Pedigree, KA has been lauded everywhere from Hiphopdx.com to the pages of the New York Times. All this without ever wavering from and even amid rumors that 50 Cent is trying to sign him, KA has stayed on the grind, releasing a slew of self-made videos that echo the gritty minimalism of his music. After rocking stages with Beanie Seigel and other hip-hop luminaries in recent months, this is KA’s first headlining gig in NYC since Grief Pedigree dropped! It is exciting and an honor to have billy woods open up for this show as it is sure to be a monumental one.
