Laws – Homeland (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 4th, 2011 by Hyphen

A few posts ago, I mentioned that Taysean is possibly the most underrated artist in the Seattle scene. Looking at the game from a national perspective, I might have to give that distinction to Laws. I’m continually surprised that more people aren’t up on one of the nicest and most versatile MC’s around. Hopefully that will change with the release of his Paul McCartney inspired Yesterday’s Future project this summer.

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on December 25th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homies Cee & Bekah traveled all the way from Australia to link up with Mick Boogie & Terry Urban and drop the latest edition of their Soul Movement mixtape series.  This one picks up right where Vol. 2 left off with an ill mix of dope rhymes and ill melodies.  Great beat selection too.  Cop this with the quickness and if you’ve been sleeping, you can actually download all 3 volumes off the Bandcamp link below.

Posted in Artists, Joints, Other Peoples' Interviews on July 21st, 2009 by Hyphen

If you name drop me in an interview, there’s a good chance I’ll post it up on TAOD hahaha.  4:53 ftw!

Nah, but for real, Outasight and 6th are two of my favorite artists these days and people are starting to recognize the incredible talent they possess.  If you’re still in the dark, peep the interview with Terry Urban (what up Mick!) for some good background info and be sure to download one of the best songs of the year too:

Outasight – “Brand New Day”

Flawless record.

The Kid Daytona – The Daytona 500

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on May 5th, 2009 by Hyphen

As I alluded to here, The Kid Daytona is one of the nicest MC’s doing it right now and I’m anxiously awaiting his debut album, Come Fly With Me.  To help set up the project and make sure that people are aware of the talent, he’s teamed up with Mick Boogie to drop The Daytona 500.  Each track flips the same legendary sample that Ghostface used (Bob James’ “Nautilus”), but Daytona and his stable of producers make each joint different and their own.  You need to download this immediately.

1.  The First Lap
2.  The Wings {prod. 6th Sense}
3.  The Body {prod. Ill Bomb}
4.  The Engine {prod. Double 0}
5.  The Navigation {prod. Jet Audio}
6.  The Take Off (Flight) {prod. The Government}
7.  The Pit Crew *BONUS TRACK* feat. Outasight, Harlem’s Cash, 6th Sense {prod. 6th Sense}

Also, be on the lookout for another Daytona/Jet Audio collaboration on our upcoming Cornerstone Mixtape.  #115 drops any day now…peep the tracklisting here.

Mick Boogie presents Adele: 1988 (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on December 16th, 2008 by Hyphen


If you checked out this week’s Sound Session, you heard us play a cut from the big homey 6th Sense that sampled Adele.  The track was taken from the new project from Mick Boogie, Adele: 1988, which just hit the net.  You already know it’s gonna be dope.  I’ll let Mick introduce it:

Mick Boogie and friends present to you their latest masterpiece, Adele: 1988.

Fresh off the success of the internationally-acclaimed Viva La Hova, the MB team have reunited to introduce rock star Adele (nominated for 4 Grammy awards) to a whole new audience.

Adele’s album 19 set trends and created influence in the pop, rock and international worlds. But what would happen if the vocals and instruments of 19 were combined with the hip-hop sensibilities of the late 1980s, considered by many hip-hop’s golden age?

The result is the new release from Mick Boogie… Adele: 1988.

More than a mashup, it’s a complete reinterpretation of Adele’s album as only Mick Boogie and friends can do.
1 ) Chasing 1988: The Intro (f/ 6th Sense)
2 ) Day Dreams (nVMe Remix)
3 ) Tired (6th Sense Remix)
4 ) First Love (Remot Remix f/ Naledge)
5 ) My Same (Garbs Infinite Remix)
6 ) Melt My Heart To Stone (Kickdrums Remix f/ Big Pooh)
7 ) Cold Shoulder (Garbs Infinite Remix)
8 ) Right As Rain (nVMe Remix)
9 ) Make You Feel My Love (Remot Remix)

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

Mick Boogie x Dope Couture x A Tribe Called Quest

Posted in Art, Goods, Mixtapes, Politics on October 17th, 2008 by Hyphen

Can We Kick It

We’ve seen a bunch of dope Obama shirts over the last year, and here’s another one to add to the list thanks to Mick Boogie and Dope Couture.  Nothing is assured yet, but I’m so excited about the state of the presidential race right now.  I can’t even imagine the fall out if Obama loses.  Not only would people be upset all over the world, but this would throw a huge wedge in race relations and turn off an entire generation to politics.  If he’s up in the polls by a few points and loses, right or wrong, many will see it as an example of racism where people claim to be prObama, only to go behind the curtain and vote McCain.  Things would be really ugly for a long time, since he is clearly the much better candidate.  McCain’s throwing the kitchen sink at him and it’s not going to work.  There’s a reason why voters under 35 are overwhelmingly supporting Obama.  He’s the future.  McCain is the past.

Cop Mick’s shirt right here and check out the quick mixtape he put together with Terry Urban to launch the shirt:

  1. Mick Boogie/Terry Urban: Intro
  2. Daytona: Can I Kick It? (produced by Garbs Infinite)
  3. Mekka Don: Dear Obama (produced by Skinny Vee)
  4. Malik Yusef f/ Kanye West: Promised Land
  5. Ra The Mc: Ready Or Not (produced by Judah)
  6. Jus Mic: Politics As Usual
  7. Jin: Open Letter To Obama
  8. 6th Sense: Ignite The People (produced by 6th Sense)
  9. Doxx: Smile Sarah (produced by Remot)

Download here.  (ZShare has been acting up in the last few days, so we’ll see if this link stays ‘under maintenance’ for long)
