The good folks at SMKA release the third installment to their 808 Experiment series, featuring a cache of fucking awesome artist like, but not limited to branDun DeShay, Mikkey Halsted, Freddie Gibbs, and Sam Dew of Cloudeater (see what I did there?) . Trust me, these mogs went hard on this one. Lend and ear to Sam Dew’s track District In The Dark and sniff the bag before you cop the zip (see what I did there?). Oh, and for those who reside in Atlanta there are two release parties happening this weekend in honor of this glorious occasion. Pluggers after that thang.

Blind I hitting you with mad new music to inspire you through your daily routine! I was gonna drop this on the 1st but things got hectic and you know…Independence Day Weekend will have you off your square quick! But I’ve redeemed myself by coming through to drop these heatrocks on your brain! Black Milk, Vic Spencer and I, Kid Cudi, Curren$y, Big Boi, Aloe Blacc, The Roots, Vic Mensa, TiRon, The Cool Kids, Killer Mike, Ratatat, J. Cole, Janelle Monáe, Phil Adé, and a host of special guests to get your July hotter than it already is! Ride to this….and partake!
Track listing after the jump…
Phil Ade was a part of our SXSW Quality! showcase and we’ve been betting on him ever since. The DMV rapper debuted with Starting on JV last year, and now he and Don Cannon are back with The Letterman. Both figuratively, and literally, he’s earning his place and expanding his audience. The mixtape also features Wale, Raekwon and Tabi Bonney.
Hit the skip for track listing and links!
My money’s on Phil Adé henceforth….dude is super talented and his songs continue to have a dimension of quality that many of his peers are missing.
Phil Adé is the truth, and what the DMV already knows, the world will know shortly. This is the video for his new joint ‘The Letter‘ from his “Letterman” project, hosted by Okayplayer, which should be dropping verrry soon. He graced us with his talent and rocked at Quality SXSW, and we stand behind him!
Vic Spencer & Sulaiman – State Of The Union Freestyle
What can I say, I was anxious to drop this one. A truckload of heat was made readily available this last week, and therefore I HAD to incorporate it all into this month’s Blind I Says GO! The motivation behind this one was fresh & new, meaning the wardrobe has been flipped, the summer is here, and it’s time to work hard and play hard. We’re talking new joints from Kid Cudi, Drake, Black Milk, Vic Spencer and I, Gil Scott-Heron, Kanye West, Phil Adé, Francis and the Lights, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Sean Price, Black Sheep, Mark Ronson, Janelle Monaé, Alicia Keys, Hollyweerd, Dirty Money, and Dam Funk. Whoa. Time to indulge….
Yeah, that’s right. Blind I is coming. And we’re bringing all of our friends with us. SXSW won’t know what hit em, and we plan to put on a show that’ll exceed expectations and then some. Blind I linked up with the good people of DCtoBC, Leaders1354, Illroots, The Great Progression, VitaMorte, and GoodWoodNYC to bring the world the QUALITY! Showcase!!!!! On Friday, March 19th we invade Austin, TX during SXSW Music Week to rock Soho Lounge with over 28 acts of freshness! Who’s featured you ask? We’re talking Theo Martins, Vandalyzm, Classy Hand Favours, TiRon, Project Mayhem, The Paxtons, KJ, Mic Terror, Black Spade, Sonnymoon, Brittany Street, Bad Rabbits, Phil Adé, Xavier Pryce, Kinky Notti, Tabi Bonney, Brittany Bosco, Proh Mic, YP, Big Homie Doe, Rockwell Knuckles, House Shoes, BBU, Coultrain, L.e. for the Uncool, Pugs Atomz, Cubic Zirconia, Ro Spit, and some special surprises! This is an unofficial SXSW showcase so NO SXSW BADGE OR WRISTBAND IS NEEDED FOR ENTRY. It’s FREE ALL NIGHT and kicks off at 12 Noon. Hustle Simmons is the host and we’ve got special giveaways and product from Leaders 1354, VitaMorte, and GoodWoodNYC. We’re essentially bringing Blind I For The Kids to your face! And on top of all that, we went ahead and compiled a special-extra-special compilation of all the artists involved with a little help from our friends Classy Hand Favours for your listening pleasure. Please do hit the jump to partake, and check us out at SXSW!
