In the words of the Grateful Dead, what a long, dope road it’s been. Ok, so maybe that’s not exactly how Jerry Garcia and company put it, but that’s what they would have said if they wrote Truckin about DJBooth and Event Electronic’s 20/20 Music series. From Rapper Big Pooh to Thurz and everyone in between, we’ve let loose a lot of stellar hip-hop, and what better way to close things out than with DJ Nu-Mark’s By My Side? Behind the boards Nu-Mark displays some of the classic style that first earned him acclaim alongside Jurassic 5, layering a sparkling, island tinged sample over some steadily paced percussion. Providing the vocal half of the equation is illa Jay, who lays down appropriately mellowed bars that are far deeper than they might first appear on the surface. Looking for all..um…20 of the 20/20 tracks? You’re in luck. The compilation 20/20 Music mixtape hits The DJBooth for free stream and download at the link above.

MP3: BBU - "Jumpers"


MP3: BBU - "Jumpers"

From Audible Treats.

The Chicago-based threesome is back once again, building momentum for their upcoming February 2012 mixtape, bell hooks, presented by Mishka and Mad Decent. Following their latest single, "Outlaw Culture," BBU brings us the Tony Baines produced track "Jumpers," showcasing their revolutionary sound in both their lyrical content and production value.

"For me it [the message] was talking about how most of the hip-hop you hear on the radio is still centered around money, consumerism, and portraying women in a negative way," explains Illekt. "This doesn't benefit or advance people of color in any way, so I touched on our day-to-day struggles, such as death, murder, poverty, and also how we are moving away from being a society of actual human interaction to a society that relies more on social networking to interact with one another. Also, I flipped some of the lyrics from popular artists, like Drake and Wayne on the radio and used them in a different way than they were originally meant to be used."

BBU wrote "Jumpers" in response to being told that they had to relocate to NYC in order to make it by "industry professionals" after their hit "Chi Don't Dance" made waves in the blogosphere last year. Says Epic, "We left that meeting like, 'Um yeah, there is no way in hell we leaving Chicago. TREATED!" He raps, "The recipe to success is to roll over / move to NY and claim that you a New Yorker / I'm from the 'Go homie, home of Hoover, not Hova." Over handclaps and a bluesy, twangy electric guitar sample, BBU's poignant rhymes and "go f*ck yourself" attitude convey each member's different message, while staying on the same wavelength and proving them to be a unique force to be reckoned with in the hip hop world.

Member Jasson Perez sums it all up perfectly when asked about the message trying to be relayed in the song, "Just that we know how to rap. And that we aren't that bad at it." Not bad at all.

DTMD is busy making a couple videos for their recent album release but thought they'd remind everyone of just how dope their album is with this track featuring close friend Oddisee. It's also that time when people start making year end lists, so the 22 year olds, Dunc & Toine, wanted to offer a contender for Best Debut Album 2011: DTMD - Makin' Dollas.
