Another dance track.. 2 in one day?...Well heres the official video for Calvin Harris's worldwide smash 'I'm Not Alone'.....This track has been remixed by some well known names.... My two favorites:
Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone (Deadmau5 Remix)
Good Life Mike shot me this extended remix version he did a while back...
Calvin Harris - I'm Not Alone (Goodlife Mike Remix) ...SPZSHIP Vol 2 Mixtape coming soon...
A nice Calvin Harris throw back with Dizzee on the other end...
I'm not even gonna talk about my last experience in Vegas...Think Palms, bachelors party and alcohol.....Well anyway I like Jermaine's concept behind this mixtape..This record was originally leaked by Jermaine without the Nelly verse..heres the whole thing.
Oceans 7 - Vegas Baby
The debut video from Worldwide superstar UK producer and DJ Deadmau5....The video is an extended version of the original featuring Stephen Graham from 'Snatch'....if you haven't seen 'Snatch' or 'Lock, Stock, and Smoking Barrell' ...Netflix...
You can cop the track here
I'm not speaking on this Eminem album any more until I hear the whole thing...heres some of the official clip to his long since leaked/played on the radio all day record...'Crack a Bottle'..The full video drops later this month..I gotta say...3 swings at this and they all look like foul balls...I'm sure theres more on the album..
Stay Wide Awake
Some initial thoughts: if the records that have leaked, including these snippets from yesterday, are any indication I'm thinking this might be Em's first miss...I'm sure it'll sell, but thats not all that matters...There are artists in the Hip-hop game that have been doing this for waaaay longer than Em and never threw a bad record out there...Let alone the fact that Dre is producing a good chunk of this record...I don't know...
Well I'm sure you can see why it went lost...Supposedly this wasn't released due to the credits being ran through the entire video...Don't know why they couldnt just edit out the credits? One of my favorite Yeezy joints..
Who is Andre Saraiva? Not sure?... The world renowned Graf artist and International Party thrower.. Interesting dude...

Remember that Adrian Champion White Stripes Meets Hip-hop mix I posted a while ago? ...Well it seems there were some leftovers that didn't make the original tape like this great mix with The Pharcyde....Can't understand why...
Bound To Pass Me By (Passin Me By X Bound To Pack It Up)
I've been following Shawn Chrys for a minute and this is his new mixtape presented by 2dopeboyz/Illroots/Tapemasters inc... Now you should already know that I wouldn't be posting this if it wasn't interesting.. Inglewood's own Shawn Chrystopher is definitely an MC set on creating his own path in the minefield that is the Hip-Hop music business... You should pay attention!.. Shawn kicks rhymes over an ecclectic mix of tracks, explains his approach to music and gives us his opinion on a couple of matters through some interludes..
New Album: 'City with No Seasons'... this August
"I think somewhere in this timeframe music used to stimulate and than it was lost somewhere...it doesn't really stimulate us like it used to"....Shawn Chrystopher

J.D. makes a beat for his Las Vegas/Oceans 11 themed mixtape(dope Concept)....and its retarded....J.D. has already leaked a couple of joints over @ his site Global14, but all I want is whatever song ends up attatched to this beat...People hate, but don't forget hes still one of the best producers in music and one of the most prolific hitmakers of the last 10-15 years....
Illustrator/Photographer/Painter Dalek sits down with the good people of BKRW to speak on various subjects ranging from sneakers to Tattoos to seeing his art in museums....

The Super D3shay EP
BTW: 'Play it Safe'...Dope!
