So, when I was a younger buck, Vice and I discovered an amazing mix tape. This was after we worshiped DJ Rectangle for his quick, ridiculously clean mix tapes. It was an 80’s mix laced up by DJ Spinbad and it seemed like he was able to take what was in our head and execute it perfectly onto a mix tape. Of course it was way beyond what we were capable of doing at the time, but we loved the style so much...
Check out a new mix by FAED (Five and Eric Dlux). The artists they have included are Madeintyo, Big Sean, Big Sean, Rae Sremmurd, Mike Cervello & Cesqeaux, Destructo, Yg and more.
I could not have described it better…
Over 150 songs from more than 100 artists representing 40 years of hip hop all crammed into 4 minutes. It’s not a chronological history of hip hop. It’s rappers from different eras finishing each other’s rhymes over intersecting beats, all woven together to make one song.
So Jeff G and Rawn had a pretty popular show on the #1 station in LA (Power 106) called the Aquanet Set. After a good run, they started a new show called the “Old Skool Show.” I think Jeff is a very talented on-air jock. He has always had a cool attitide and stays grounded. Now take Jeff G and pair him up with one of the most humble/dopest dj’s in LA!?!?! It’s a winning combo!
I can’t say enough about Rawn. He is the HOMEY! Part of the Ewoks crew from LA (yes, a rarely heard of crew that had some of the dopest LA dj’s: Ryo, Coke-e, Clockwork, Echo, Vice and myself...
One thing I love about Cheapshot is his word play. He also throws in some tracks that are out of left field (but in a good way). You tend to ask yourself, “Where did that come from?”
Then you’re like “Hell ya!!!” Definately worth a listen and ipod addition.
Artist: DJ Cheapshot

Message from Cheapshot:
This is a mix I did for The All Out Show with Rude Jude and Lord Sear on Shade 45. It got a good response so I decided to release it. boom!
for booking info please contact:
All I can say is… skills!
It looks like Cheapshot has been busy in the lab. Today he released his next CD for us all to enjoy. This is his first CD release since signing with the dopest management agency in the WORLD!!! (Congrat’s Cheap and a shout out to the SKAM family). I always love his mixing style and music selection. This is for those crate diggers and music lovers. If you want to hear American Boy or You’re A Jerk, you’re looking at the wrong mix… Cheapshot is so 3008…
Artist: DJ Cheapshot
CD Title: Club Footed
Style: All mixed up...
I have gotten a few mix cds recently and thought I would share them with you. Along with one of the best websites out there for mixes:
First, of course, I have to give it to Vice. One of the most versitile djs in the industry. From top 40 to rock to new jack, Vice always brings his creativity to his CDs. He just released his new CD a few weeks ago and it is definately #1 in my 6 disc changer. Info:
Artist: DJ Vice
CD Title: Late Nights. Early Flights. VIP. Drink For Free
Style: All mixed up. But that’s why we love him right? Electro, house, new jack, top 40
So, Enrie used to be everywhere back in the day. I don’t think I’ve seen him since a random sighting in the Glendale Galleria a few years ago (he was still sporting the gold vinyl chain). The reason I probably don’t see him anymore is most likely, like most world famous djs, he has been out of the “LA” scene and more in the “World” scene. Traveling hither and there living the rockstar life, but then out of nowhere, he brings us one of the dopest mix cd sites known to man.
I had this concept sitting in my head for a while and leave it to the Enrie to bring it better than I would’ve and ...
Well, my homie Gusto just released another bangin mix cd on his website. This one is on the HOUSE tip, so this will show you how versitile he can be. From Rock to Pop to Hip-Hop and now HOUSE… let’s go!!! Check it out meng…
