Craig Mack - That's My Word EP

"I got my album getting ready to come out this summer, called That's My Word, you know what I mean? Because that's what it is." That was Craig Mack talking to BBC Radio 1's Tim Westwood in June of 2000. The album never dropped, but Mack did drop a number of singles that year as well as a fantastic freestyle that night. In memory of the late Craig Mack, British DJ Tape Deck King compiled those cuts into an EP that imagines what Mack's lost album might have sounded like had it materialized during his lifetime. The freestlye and other segments from that Westwood interview are thrown in for context. Stream below and as a bonus check out the 1995 concert to which Westwood refers at the start of their convo.

 "a king's moves is limited suggest ya protect ya queens/ my girl's rock is glimmering you should see how that face gleam/ admit my heart sink when she swim in the ocean' it's cool though copped the insurance so now my mind's floating"

If you're diggying this, check Sir Diggy's Gold Frame Portraits, featuring cameos from Outdoorsman/Roc-signee AG Da Coroner and Boot Camp Klique's Rustee Juxx.

Hazestacks - Have A Nice Day

"When I was 10 I didn't have mad friends
But I had a little thing called the interweb
I played Neopets and dress-up games
I just didn't want to play outside those days
Why bother if I was better than the rest
No one ever stepped to me, I'll purple-nurple on your chest
You ain't ever. touched. me. again.
Find out where you live and egg your mom's every now and then"

Also booze, snacks and Britney Spears samples...
