Trackstar the DJ: 80 Blocks Intro/SXSW Recap


Just got back from SXSW but the grind does not stop...the Camp Lo mixtape release is pushed back a week to 3/29, but we have a new track to give you in the meantime, below.

Also, if you are so inclined, you can check out my SXSW Recap, here. It was a crazy week for me, from rocking with my STL crew and impromptu Freeway performances to meeting Diddy and being named Killer Mike's official tour DJ...damn I love SXSW lol...

And here is the opening track off the Camp Lo mixtape:

"80 Blocks Intro (For Pete's Sake freestyle)"

I’ve always felt Camp Lo hasn’t gotten the acclaim they deserved–everyone recognizes Luchini as a classic but the whole Uptown Saturday Night album is an underrated gem, and their subsequent albums were very solid despite being practically ignored by the rap crowd at large. As such, it’s a great honor to be helping try to push them back towards the spotlight by mixing and presenting the 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s mixtape,  alongside with DJ Mark Divita, in anticipation of their upcoming collaboration album with Pete Rock of the same name.

The mix is a combination of unreleased tracks, a capella blends, and a few freestyles over Pete Rock beats, recorded in L.A. with the homie Grilla just for this tape. We dropped one of the exclusive joints two weeks ago, “Jimmy Page,” and present to you another as the last leak before the full mix drops next Tuesday. The “80 Blocks Intro” is filled with rapid-fire slang over the ill keys and bass of one of my favorite beats off Mecca and the Soul Brother, “For Pete’s Sake.” It doesn’t have to make sense to be dope, especially with flows like Cheeba’s and Suede’s.
