Summer is over but the heat still continues. I've been most of the summer working on a project with my production partner Morgan Wiley (SYNFINITE) and gospel /house singer Karl Dion Dixon. We're about 8 tracks into a full length LP and it sounding real crazy. Can't leak anything yet but 1nce it's ready,y'all be the first to preview it.
So in the meantime and in between time, I've been doing some small side projects to keep the masses buzzing. First out the gate is "Spaced Invaders", a new mixtape that can be downloaded for free on my soundcloud account PAZE INFINITE SOUNDCLOUD along with some other goodies.
Next up, I did a mashup of Adele's smash hit "Rolling In The Deep" and DC born, New York based beatsmith Oddisee's track "Tokyo" from his recently released "Travelling Man" album. It's called "Rolling Deep in Tokyo" (yeah, I know the title is a little ehh but the jam more than makes up for it trust me). You can preview in the youtube video posted below or download it for FREE at my soundcloud.
Last but not least, I did a remix for Alicia Keys' incredibly beautiful song "Un-Thinkable" from her latest album "Element of Freedom". Me and Lellow go way back before I knew her name was Alicia. Real cool chick, didn't know she could sing much less play piano until I saw her in a Vibe magazine as Clive Davis' secret weapon. When I approached her about she was all hush hush about it. Even though we lost touch after her and KB got signed, I'm still happy for her and wish her the best of success. You can preview in the youtube video posted below or download it for FREE at my soundcloud.
Please enjoy and any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" Hale was the quintessential go to man if you needed your track to reach beyond the stratosphere. From Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg to Ludacris to underground superstars Mos Def and Pharoahe Monch, Nate laced whatever track he was on with his
vocal baritone stylings and brought to the next level. In the past couple of years, his health was failing and he basically dropped off the scene. He finally succumbed to his ailments on March 15th but he'll always be remembered as a titan in the hip hop/r&b world. My most vivid memory of him was seeing him perform at the Up in Smoke tour at Giants Stadium around 2000. When Dre and Snoop performed their classic jam "Next Episode", and Nate Dogg came out? ...absolute pandemonium!!!!!
I recently got down with a global crew of beatmakers through a website called Weekly Beat Sessions . Every Tuesday, the growing roster of producers are sent an email with the “Sample of the Week” attached. Each producer has exactly six (6) days to chop up the sample and create a beat/instrumental that will be showcased the following Monday. A new BeatSession is posted every Monday by 11:59pm (Eastern Standard Time).
This week WBS decided to have a Nate Dogg tribute and the sample track was The Edge by David McCallum which Dr Dre used for "Next Episode". Posted below is my tribute called "Til The Wheels Fall Off". Rest in Power Nate Dogg you are 1 of 1.
