All That Jazz

DJ Cheapshot has released a new mixtape entitled Jazzercidal Tendencies sponsored by the fashionable peeps True Love False Idols. The new mix includes all the signature DJ Cheapshot wordplay, along with the very best of dance-floor mash. Cheap went into another direction with this particular tape, sticking mostly with rocking electro beats over Megadudical-like remixes. He also attempts to throw in a bit of 60s classics and succeeds tremendously. This mix is hard to find and available for a limited time so make sure you cop one by myspacing his ass at myspace.com/djcheapshot.

The Five Best Performances of the Star-Spangled Banner

In honor of the closing of the Olympic Games, I found this article about the five top performances of the Star-Spangled Banner.  Of course I’ve heard the Jimi Hendrix and the Whitney Huston, but Marvin Gaye?  It is pretty cool.  Check ’em out and see what you think.  If anything, this is another time-killer to search on youtube.

7 Original Recordings that Blow the Remakes Away

This is actually a really good article on original songs vs. newer (not really new) songs.  It even happened in the 60’s.  Taking a really good song, ie: Chubb Rock’s “Treat ’em Right” and turning it into Mary J Blige’s “Just Fine (remix) Ft. Swizz Beatz & Lil Wayne”

Of course it is harder to come up with original (beats/riffs/melody’s/etc.) these days because it has all been done before… OR is that just an easy out?  I know I couldn’t come out with anything original (I’m not that artistically creative), how would i know...
