On May 22 Fif is teaming with DJ Drama to drop The Lost Tape, a 13-track mixtape filled with murderous material. “I don’t want to put too many joints on a tape where it overwhelms people and I don’t like making Now compilations where I got so many people on it where you ain’t sure you like it,” he said of his formula.
Here’s an unreleased track from deceased rapper Stack Bundles featuring Kanye West. The song was recorded in 2005 and will appear on FarRockStar’s upcoming mixtape “Rap In Retrospect”.
Did It My Way
Raw Facts drops a remix over a hip hop classic in Mobb Deep’s “Shook Ones”. This was originally slated to be on FactorFiction however Facts decided to push back the project until November and add what he feels is better songs.
The remix to Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” track has Kanye West, amongst a host of MCs, talking about a bunch of things he doesn’t care for.
But even with all that dislike, Yeezy found time on the record to mention rappers in his Chicago hometown that he has respect for.
Two of them are Count and Moonie, collectively known as the L.E.P. Bogus Boys.
“Shout out to L-E-P, Jay Boogie, right?/Chief Keef, King Louie, this is Chi, right,” Yeezy spits on the remix.
So what did L.E.P. think of Yeezy’s shout out?
“That was big,” Count told XXLMag.com. “We knew Kanye since way back, before Rocafella.
“We been messin’ with Kanye for some years, though, so Kanye has always been the homie, so we definitely appreciate Kanye for shouting us out,” Moonie added.
The two Chi-town acts are even taking their mutual respect a step further, by collaborating on a record. “Not The Same” featuring ’Ye is expected to appear on L.E.P.’s upcoming mixtape, Don’t Feed Da Killaz 4.
“He looked out for us like, ‘I got a song for y’all that I think will fit you good,’” Moonie said. “He sent it over. He did the verse, he did the beat and he did the hook.
“He didn’t have to do a song with us, but with us being longtime friends…one hand wash the other,” he continued. “Whatever we could do for Kanye on the back end, we there.”
L.E.P.’s Don’t Feed Da Killaz 4, the next installemtn in their mixtape series, is expected to drop in late June.
