Mick Boogie & Terry Urban – Viva La Hova (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on October 29th, 2008 by Hyphen


The Commissioner Mick Boogie collaborated with his homey Terry Urban for their latest mixtape, Viva La Hova.  As you can probably guess, it’s a Jay-Z/Coldplay mash up…and it’s dope.  When has Mick ever dropped something wack?  Back cover, tracklisting, and download link after the jump.

If all goes right, we’ll get Mick and Terry out to the 206 in the near future…

Coldplay – Lost (promo video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 29th, 2008 by Hyphen

Here’s the official promo video for Coldplay’s “Lost” off Viva La Vida….  Been trying to tell y’all, this is still my ish.  I’ve heard one random MC try to hop this and “remix” it, but I wonder why more aren’t trying it.  There’s a built in spot right when the guitar solo drops.  If you’re dope, rap there please.

Natti (of CunninLynguists) – Ruled The World (Kno’s Viva La Vida Remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Remixes on July 1st, 2008 by Hyphen

Natti and Chris

Whoooo, this is fire.  If you aren’t familiar with the CunninLynguists, you need to get up on the 3 man group from Kentucky/Atlanta ASAP.  They’re right up there with Outkast, Little Brother, Slum Village, the Roots, Inverse, and U-N-I as my favorite groups doing it today.  One of the MC’s, Natti, just paired up with their producer extraordinaire, Kno, to rework Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” record.  The result is an ill “cautionary tale about the decline of the ‘one-trick-pony’ rapper.”  Super fresh.

Coldplay – Lost (live on the Daily Show)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances on June 29th, 2008 by Hyphen

(you may have to wait a minute to get the Hulu player to load the clip)

My favorite song out right now.  Chris Martin’s voice sounds ridiculous live and the end result is fire.

MC’s…who’s gonna be the first one of y’all to jump on that bridge and record something?  It’s open, just loop it a little and kill it.

Coldplay – “Lost”

Posted in Artists, Joints on June 23rd, 2008 by Hyphen


I finally got a chance to peep the new Coldplay album, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, and the ish is super dope.  Aside from the title track that you’ve seen all over TV in that iTunes commercial, my favorite joint has to be “Lost.”  Apparently it was inspired by Blur’s “Sing,” but check it out and listen for yourself.  Plus I tossed in the alternate acoustic version.  Mood music.

That acoustic version is made for a movie soundtrack…
