Quoth TSS:

"With 2011’s first quarter coming to a close, it’s time to put down the Kanye and the Saigon turn your ears and anticipation to a loaded Spring of Hip-Hop. To get you in the mood, TSS is proud to present the official mixtape for the upcoming Pete Rock and Camp Lo’s summer album, 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s with Trackstar the DJ and DJ Mark Divita backing the project.

This tape does double duty. It reminds us of Camp Lo’s sometimes slept-on lyrical talent while serving hardcore fans with appetizers off the forthcoming full-length. Trackstar’s blends of timeless beats from the Mecca and the Soul Brother days mesh perfectly with Camp Lo a cappellas unearthed from deep within the crates. Previously leaked singles of the full-length, “Mic Check” and the freestyle “Jimmy Page,” form the foundation of the tape and even if “Mic Check” won’t make it onto your local radio, it still deserves a trip through your car speakers.

While we await the full length project, this mixtape will serve as a reminder of things past and a preview of future dopeness.  Enjoy."


Bonus: New Rockwell Knuckles album, "You're Fxckin Out, I'm Fxckin In"

Jay Electronica. Dr Dre. Rockwell Knuckles.

Some artists do things on their own schedule, happy to let anticipation build up before releasing new material when it’s just right, and not a moment before. It’s been over a year since Choose Your Own Adventure, but You’re F*ckin Out, I’m F*ckin In is worth the wait. Rockwell’s approach to a release schedule may be unconventional, but the results are undeniable–he wrecks thirteen beats in a wide range of tempos and textures, with guest appearances from Tef Poe, Vandalyzm and Theresa Payne. There’s more on the horizon, too–expect the upcoming collaborative EP with Tef to be available before Act III.
