For the second single off Guilty Simpson & Small Professor’s collaborative effort Highway Robbery, the duo team up with AG (of D.I.T.C) on “It’s Nuthin’.” By fusing Small Professor’s use of sample chops, thumping drums and electric guitar chords with Guilty’s calculated rhyme schemes and AG’s classic bars, this track should be another reason to cop the album on September 24th. Highway Robbery is now available for pre-order on iTunes.
DJ Manipulator returns with the twenty-second installment of #manipulatormondays. Says Manipulator:
HOLY SHIT!!!!!! #manipulatormondays is back!!! My apologies for the hiatus but I’m back with another edition and I’m gonna keep this thang going for a while. This week’s edition is something brand new. A while back my good friend Haze and I went digging at the local flea market and I copped this record for a buck. I had no idea what was on it but i took a chance and what you hear right now is the result of me chopping up one of the songs off of that record. Nothing crazy. Just some boom bap shit. I might put this one up for sale. Anyways I hope you check it out, enjoy it, and share it with you friends.
The finished product:
With today being Curtis Mayfield’s birthday (he would have been 71), it’s only right I leave you with a few of my favorite joints from his impressive music catalog. Thank you Mr. Mayfield for providing us with such great music throughout the years. Your legacy will live on forever.
