@SHOUTOUTNEWYORK X @UNITEDCRATES Present: @Raekwon – #TheLinxstrumentals #OB4CL


This classic Raekwon album, Only Built For Cuban Linx turns drinking age today. That’s 21 for you smart/dumb motherfuc****. I thought it would be dope to repost this classic mix featuring the album’s instrumentals/originals and some other goodies. The Vinylcologist aka United Crates (7th Boro contributor and one hell of a DJ) created this for the 20th anniversary but I feel like it didn’t get the props it deserved. Play this shit. Enjoy this shit.

Spanglish Hip Hop – The Best of Both Idiomas

Spanglish copy

For those who don’t know what Spanglish is…’s a combination of Spanish and English in the same sentence or conversation. It’s used when a person isn’t sure how to pronounce a word in English or vice versa. Sometimes it’s used just for the hell of it. There are a few Hip Hop tracks that utilize the Spanglish language and do a great job of it. MC’s like Tony Touch, Thirstin’ Howl, and Chino Xl have mastered the art of Spanglish rap. Here are a few of my favorite cuts. Let me know which are your favorites or if I should add some.

First on the list is “Se Acabo” by the Beatnuts. This track flips both languages lovely. Magic Juan and Swinger did their thing on this too. Listen.

Next we have the Diaz Brothers. Doo Wop and Tony Touch (master of the Spanglish flow) dropped this joint on the first Piecemaker album. Spanglish at it’s best.

A Tribe Called Quest – Beats, Rhymes & Life 20th Anniversary Mix by Chris Read @SubstanceMusic


I can’t believe it’s been twenty years since A Tribe Called Quest‘s Beats, Rhymes, and Life album dropped. I remember copping the CD with my brother on the day it dropped so I could have the limited edition hologram cover. Some would argue that it wasn’t their best album but it’s a classic nonetheless. Shout out to Chris Read for keeping the spirit of the tribe alive.
