DON’T SLEEP: Jonwayne “Jonwayne Fucks Disney” [BEAT TAPE]

Jonwayne dropped a beat tape where he sampled music from Disney films that are now largely public domain. It’s called “Jonwayne Fucks Disney”  and I’ve had it for a few hours via Jonwayne’s personal site but the original “artwork” was  just so godawful that I didn’t post it until Stones Throw finally offered me an alternative (Thank you Based God). Don’t sleep on this…

DON’T SLEEP: Jonwayne “Oodles Of Doodles” [BEAT TAPE]

Jonwayne (“The Death Of Andrew” & “Bowser”) is well known on the LA beat scene, his appearances with Brainfeeder and also by spinning and emceeing @ Low End Theory. He drops a two CD monster of a beat tape called “Oodles Of Doodles” today. The physical version contains 48 slaps but the digital download contains only 44 (Only *chuckles to self*). You can preview the project and purchase it by going directly to the venerable Stones Throw site or finding it in a damb wrecka stow. Don’t sleep…

DON’T SLEEP: Hodgy Beats x Jonti “Samurai” (prod. by Jonti) [SINGLE]

Apparently there’s a Hodgy Beats EP floating around. I saw a weird video for a mediocre song that made me think that someone spiked my Sprite with peyote yesterday on YouTube. Yesterday morning I heard a song called “Samurai” by OFWGKTA’s Hodgy Beats that was produced by Jonti. I guess someone from Odd Future said something that pissed off Dam-Funk cuz he spoke on it last night. At least this song is cool…
