Video and Audio from Noise 212 Radio Sunday July 18th

July 20th, 2010

Being on Noise 212 Radio was a really fun experience for many reasons. I mean just hanging around with my fellow deejays like Shiftee, JP Solis, and Jago (click on their names to see their sets) was dope. But also, being open format, I was able to play whatever I wanted. With this in mind, I made my set very eclectic and fun (see tracklist below).

Lacking creativity this morning (I’m in LA), I decided to make the title a line for one of my favorite battle records! This doesn’t mean it is not random, I am just explaining my randomness.

Anyways, here are some downloads and a battle video of world champ DJ Shiftee:


Domino (Illo Disco Suprise Mix)- Van Morrison

Also here are two house and hip hop joints:

Twitter presents: Jewish Rap Names

February 22nd, 2010

Last night, Twitter became ablaze out of nowhere with a topic called #jewishrapnames. I think most people caught the drift, and it quickly became a game of who can think of the best name alteration first. Some people just didn’t get it, and they wrote things that were either unclever, uncouth, or unfunny. Most of you did though, and the homie A-Trak went through and collected the best of the best. Have a (good) sense of humor and check it out.

Jay-Z’s 40th Birthday Mixtape Preview and A Remix

December 12th, 2009


If “December 4th” sounds familiar, it might be because it’s a Jay-Z song. And it’s a Jay-Z song, as any rap fan can tell you, because it’s his birthday. And today’s not just ANY birthday, it’s his big 4-0, so let us be the first (even though we’re probably not) to wish Jiggaman a very happy birthday, and many more on Channel 4, and Frankenstein on Channel 9, etc. etc. etc. In fact, we’ve tried to pass the birthday tidings onto YOU, our loyal readers, by leaking the tracklisting from the surprise mixtape Jay’s dropping tonight*.

See, with such a momentous occasion at hand, and as he gracefully transitioned into middle age, he realized that he’d be going through some changes in his life, as any aging man would. So he went back and re-recorded some of his greatest hits, with new titles and new lyrics, to reflect those changes. So read on for the tracklisting, and a sample verse that we were able to get our hands on. And again, Mr. Carter: happy birthday, and please don’t dismantle our company after reading this. It’s all love!


1. Polident As Usual
2. Blue Magic (The Viagra Song)
3. Empire Prostate of Mine
4. Where Are My Glasses?
5. Nap Game
6. Moment of Claritin
7. 99 Puddings
8. Can’t Knock the Shuffleboard
9. Never Change (Thanks to Depends)
10. Izzo (A.A.R.P.)
11. Can I Get A…What Was I Saying Again?
12. Pension, Social Security, Hoes
13. Bingo Boys (And The Winner Is)
14. Grandpop 4 Roc
15. Cholesterol Report
16. (Please Roll Me Out Into the) Sunshine
17. Combover

Speaking of Jay, here is a remix: Jay-Z [Rob Low Throwback Remix].mp3
