thanks to everyone who came to Shelter last night come correct. four-turntable action by Shige and Caution, raps by MC One Consciousness, and “Milkshake” pitched down 12% and some rare slow jams by myself at the end, followed by a classic ji gong bao (chicken hot pot) sesh.
note to restaurants who plan on giving away free alcohol and advertising this in SmartShanghai – get more than one bartender. wtf. some people prlly came from Hangzhou for that free Sangria last night in Xintiandi.
hadn’t been to Xintiandi in at least a year. totally forgot about that side of Shanghai. meh. did meet a grave/tomb dealer though. best “so what are you doing in Shanghai?” convo I’ve had in years. dude took my “i sell dreams” response way too seriously though.
man wtf is going on in America right now…jesus.
it’s raining but fuck it, i’m going to the studio to finish this track. until then, peep these:
Aaliyah – Are You That Somebody
Gemmy – Too Far
No DL on the Gemmy track. Just came out. Also really feeling this mixtape – it’s a slow builder, and dark as fuck. If you like Salem, Three 6 Mafia, or anything on Tri Angle Records, you’ll love this.
Some young kids from Memphis put this together, here’s the tracklist:
1. Diamond Bass – Nomada/All That
2. Three Six Mafia – South Memphis Bitch
3. Clicks & Whistles – Hello
4. Lil Daggers – Pair of Lives
5. Lil Wayne – I Feel Like Dying
6. Project Pat – I Keep That
7. Courtesy – Life, Man
8. Wiz Khalifa – On My Level
9. Com Truise – Colorvision
10. Koreless – Made In
11. Cities Aviv – Sixsixsixes
12. Gorillaz – Empire Ants
They call this “post-trap.” Awesome.
