What’s in the Tapedeck v.8 (02.15.08)

blame it on Shake February 15, 2008

Hope everyone’s V-Day was good. Whatever that means for you. Now let’s get back to the music. You guys know what this post is about. New music from Fabolous, Crooked I, Rick Ross, NoDJ version of a 50 Cent track I dig, Joell Ortiz f. Novel, Wordsworth, Bishop Lamont, Lil Wayne and more.

Nicki Manaj – High As a Kite f. Lil Wayne
Most people have seen this chick either naked or in videos. Now she is an “artist”. Whatever, I won’t knock anyone’s “hustle”. Features the Lil Rascal, so that should please the stans.

Everliven Sound – What If f. Wordsworth
Great concept track from the new group Eveliven Sound. Shouts to Words for coming through and droppin knowledge!

Fabolous & Freck Billionaire – I’m Gettin Money [NoDJ]
NoDJ version that just got released on the DJ Drama & Loso mixtape.

Rick Ross – Dey Know Freestyle
With his sophomore album on the way, Ricky Ross has been droppin freestyle after freestyle and making countless mixtape appearances. Shouts to X for this.

Rick Ross – That Girl Freestyle
See above description. Same shout out is required too.

Bobby Creekwater – You Know The Name
Shady Records emcee is finally putting out some music. It’s been awhile. You’re new to the game, you can take Eminem breaks in this hip hop shit just yet. Shit, Eminem shouldn’t even take Eminem breaks.

Joell Ortiz – Here, the Next f. Novel
This track was either recorded before he was dropped from Interscope or he just flat out missed the memo. Regardless, Joell is droppin’ The Chronicles pt. 2 Free Agent next month.

PR1ME – Megatron f. Bishop Lamont
New track off PR1ME’s latest street tape, The Transformation: Perception Is Deception, which is available now.

Clap Cognac – Checkin U f. Crooked I
Another up and coming artist grabs Crooked I for assistance. I must say, it’s a smart move. It’s guaranteed to surpass atleast 3k listens on DX. Not feasible with an some unknown artist.

50 Cent – The Mechanic [NoDJ]
Here is the mastered NoDJ version that was just put out on the G-Unit mixtape. This will be on the upcoming album.

OC & A.G. – 2 For the Money
Awesome track off their upcoming collaboration album. Produced by Showbiz, with cuts by DJ Premier. You can’t lose with this one.

Static & Messiah – Keep Wishing (rmx) f. Skyzoo, Letia Larok & Leanne)
Can’t say I know much of anything about the artists. I do know it’s produced by WMS the Sultan (who killed shit on Joey’s MM3) and features Skyzoo. Descent joint, I can dig it.

Termanology – Kilo Rap f. Ghetto & Big Noyd
Another track off the upcoming ST. Da Squad Mixtape. Produced by MoSS.

Billy Danze – Return of the Marxmen
1/2 of the legendary M.O.P. Fiyaaaaaah.

Yukmouth – Wake They Game Up f. Crooked I
Another Crooked assisted joint. This time with long time west coast emcee, Yukmouth. Bangin.

Rest in Peace Lamont Coleman, dedication post(s) coming shortly…
