RIP Grand Master Roc Raida

Yesterday marked 2 years since Roc Raida died as a result of injuries he received via a Krav Maga accident. I thought I would share one of my favorite memories of his via his X-Men Style Beats from the Bomb Dj's compilation.

Katalyst makes fresh mixtapes!

I have been getting really into both of these great mixes from Australian producer Katalyst lately. Both contain great songs that have been used in many of my favorite hip hop beats over the years, but it isnt one of those mixes where you have heard it all before, there are plenty of tracks on both that I have never heard on any mixes at all (and you know I listen to a lot of mixes!)
