Farewell Def Jux: 1999-2010 (Mixtape)

blame it on Shake February 7, 2010

With El-P announcing that indie label Definitive Jux was going on hiatus, the homie Vega went ahead and put together a massive compilation of some of his personal favorite Def Jux tracks. Featuring the likes of Cage, Aesop Rock, Cannibal Ox, El-P, Camu Tao, RJD2, Mr. Lif, Murs & 9th Wonder, C-Rayz Walz and many more. Damn, looking at the tracklist I’m reminded of how many classic records this crew has put out there. UPDATE: Brought this back to the top as I took the time out to tag the files properly. Now it should show up all nice on your iPod/Zune.

    This is new to me, but I’m definitely gonna check it out. I’m a big Rhymesayers fan so.

  • OGEazy

    Holy Fuck! I can’t wait to listen to this.

  • George Clooney

    Iron Galaxy ftw.

  • Calebbbbbbb

    are these all full songs??

  • HeartAnemic

    Damn this looks so dope.

  • THATguy

    pigeon ftw. I didn’t know def jux was going out….that’s messed up. My 2nd favorite label.

  • OGEazy

    I’ve been following MURS for awhile now, I really hope Warner doesn’t completely ruin his unique style.
    I haven’t heard most of these songs for way too long to be honest. With so much music coming out everyday it’s hard to remember the classics.

  • Mike

    That sucks…but isn’t it called Definitive Jux? /asshole

  • stevep

    damn, dude just gonna debo half they catalog in one post huh….PIgeon, Oxycontin2, Hold the floor, Nightlight…those are are some serious cuts right there

  • burd

    That sucks…but isn’t it called Definitive Jux? /asshole

    google…that is all


    cuts from the classic Murs 3:16..
    co-sign @OGeazy
    Murs for president had a few bumpy moments, I hope Murs don’t end up on some black eye peas shit..smh

  • D. $cience

    Cold Vein is the best underground rap album of this past decade. El-P is one of the most slept on producers.
    Def Jux along with Stones Throw, Rhymesayers, and other indie labels pushed the illest underground sh**.

    So long Definitive Jux…let’s see who’s gonna push indie hip hop to the next level now.

  • 1dopeboy

    considering danny! is the only def jux artist i listen to almost all of this is new to me
    so i’ll check it out

  • OGEazy

    I never heard some of these. I just fired up my bong before I turned this in and there are a few tracks that were really strange. There is a lot of quality music on here though.

  • London

    Cold Vein is the best underground rap album of this past decade D. $cience said this on February 5th, 2010 at 4:54 pm <<<<yup

  • jd

    Proud to say I own all these except the fhaggy new stuff. Def Jux has definitely run it’s course, but the early 20000’s was clearly the best and a helluva time to remember. CanOx, Labor Days, I Phantom… some of the most amazing hip hop I’ve ever heard.

  • jd

    erp, I mean 2000’s!

  • chizzle

    smh @ “hard to remember the classics”

    if its “classic”… it’d be pretty fuckin’ hard to forget. thats whats wrong with rating shit (like at DX) Everyone’s so quick to rate shit 5 stars while never considering the “REAL CLASSICS”

    As for DEF JUX, I too was saddened by it til the homie brought it to my attention that only Iron Galaxy was a CLASSIC. all others were ok with couple dope songs here and there. after looking thru my Def Jux catalog, I couldn’t find too many songs I have on repeat

  • theedopeshow

    def jux r.i.p…. what i miss more is co flo

  • i never really listened to these artists, and now i am being wow’d by the music im listening too.

    extra dope.

  • George Clooney


    It’s a real toss up for me between Iron Galaxy and Funcrusher. 8 Steps To Perfection is definitely a “REAL CLASSIC” track.

    Anyhow, most co flow material came out on Rawkus.

  • theedopeshow

    yea but without what co flow did previously… el p wouldnt have had the fan base to go on with doing def jux… its like death row vs aftermath… but rawkus did more stuff in its little 4-5 years than def jux… shit… for the record… r.i.p. to both… but when it comes to indie rap… duck down is king… bigger than rhymesayers and stonesthrow combined…

    The Game – reunion

    i am very serious

  • Not to complain but, this thing is four f*cking hours long! Dude pretty much raped Def Jux’ catalog. And the tracklist still isn’t in order.
    Good selection though!

  • Loisha

    44. RJD2 ft Jakki Da Mitamouth – F.H.H.mp3!!!
