After nearly a year and a half, we’re happy to announce the newest edition to our mixtape series. This go around, we’ve linked up with The Money Making Jam Boys’ for their first mixtape release, The Prestige: Jam Boy Magic. The Money Making Jam Boys (consisting of Black Thought from the Grammy-winning Roots crew, Dice Raw, Truck North, P.O.R.N. and STS) join Kid Cudi, Wale and Donnis as artists that we have supported and championed as a brand.
Seamlessly mixed by The Press Play Show’s own Mick Boogie and Terry Urban, The Prestige – sixteen tracks of hot lava – draws equally upon original production by the likes of Frank Knuckles & ?uestlove, and a revisitation of several golden era hip-hop tracks. Mix that with cuts by the legendary Jazzy Jeff and you get what many who’ve been privy to preview listens state is the best mixtape release we’ve had to-date. We’ll reserve our judgment and let you decide…
It’s party time in NYC, once again, on February 2nd, when we celebrate the release event at Hiro Ballroom with a live performance from MMJB (and whoever else they bring to the show). For those of you not in NYC, we’ll be hosting a listening preview event at Cmonwealth in DC on January 31rst. Event details will follow shortly.
The Prestige will be available for download at our website at 12pm, Brooklyn time, on Thursday, February 3rd. Follow us on Twitter over the next couple of days to catch a peek at preview tracks and videos leading up to the release
