Video: Mikkey Halsted – First Class

| September 24, 2010 | 31 Comments

Directed by Noah Banks.  Track produced by Prolyfic.

Come Hell or high water, Mikkey’s The Dark Room will be dropping this Fall.  I just got word that his first official single is a never-before-heard monster from No ID that I like to call the 2010 version of OC’s “Time’s Up”.   Mikkey isn’t pulling any punches on this one, so prepare for an exorcism.  Look for it to impact within the next few weeks.  But for now, enjoy the treatment for First Class.

Kanye West – Touch It + Hustlaz [Unreleased]

| September 24, 2010 | 0 Comments

So in the spirit of G.O.O.D. Friday’s, here we have two new Kanye instrumentals that were apparently meant for Rash.  Per ReallHipHop, the first was to feature Common and Ludacris, but was never completed.  Kanye is still on the hook as a reference.  The second will probably sound familiar to you as it was also given to Twista and it later became “Hustlaz”, which leaked a couple weeks back.  RHH is reporting the instrumental was original given to Common, but who knows.  I wouldn’t mind hearing Com and T together on it…Yeah, still waiting on that collabo.

Video: Reno Chinati x Yung Berg 2005 Freestyle [Unreleased]

| September 23, 2010 | 2 Comments

I think Will Gates has more footage in his vaults than just about anyone in Chicago. From Sly to Bump to Berg – he has reels and reels of material.  Material that is slowly but surely trickling out to the world.  Here is a rare albeit brief freestyle from Reno Chinati and Yung Berg from 2005.  Yep, all the way back when Berg had the “B” chain.  It’s more Reno than Berg, but you get the idea.
