Another blog that are way better at their job than i am recently posted the original version of ready to die, which is a seriously cool find. Rather than be a biter and just republish the link, i'll give you one of the gems from the album to suss out - and then you can head over to their site and give them their due.

Keny Arkana - La rage du peuple (The rage of the people)
This shit is brilliant.
It's in french but fuck it, you dont need to know whats being said. There are subtitles but dont let that distract you from what's happening on screen. Just imagine you are banging a hot foreign supermodel.. she's screaming stuff in another language, but you dont know what she is saying. You could try for the translation, but instead of distracting yourself from the game you should just stop worrying and appreciate the moment.
at least that's what i told the judge.

Our good friend DJ Bonez has been generous enough to release an entirely free mix
tape cdmp3 on his myspace. I can testify that it is also entirely dope. Being that he is an actual DJ and not just some guy with a penchant for silly photoshop covers, you should download it promptly.

Well you probably could i guess, if you were in control of the internet. But you aren't are you? So why would you say that you are? stop the lies.
Anyway, remember that RZA joint i posted a couple weeks back, off of his new album "Digi Snacks"? It was called "you cant stop me now" and had a pretty damn awesome filmclip. Well watch that, then listen to this song, also called "you cant stop me now" off of Nas's new joint, the title of which I probably shouldn't say due to my angloness. Also you might remember Ill Bill did it too... although he called his song "Unstoppable".
edit: It's been brought to my attention that MF Doom also did this on King Geedora, an album i never actually picked up. Mos Def has also done this on Tru Magic. I've added the latter, if anyone has a copy of the doom track let me know and i'll put it up too.
So which version is best? well that's for you to decide my pretties. Leave a comment with your thoughts.
Nas - You cant stop me now
Rza - You cant stop me now
Ill Bill - Unstoppable
Mos Def - Undeniable

Fuck this is awesome, ODB doing brooklyn zoo in front of a live studio audience. I would have loved to be in that audience, the awkwardness would be palpable.
Excited audience member air punching next to awkward unimpressed girl at 1:52 is a moment of cinematic glory.

So since a few of you actually seemed to enjoy that last mix i made, i thought i'd post the latest in the series. I realise that not all of it is entirely gully and brolic, but you have to stop and have a rest here and there you know. Silly cover art, tracklist (click for the easy to read version) and link all below.
Drop a comment if you like.

This filmclip fucking rules.
From the album "Digi Snacks"
On a completely unrelated note Debris has a dog called Digi.. whom he presumably gives snacks. Oh snap.
From the forthcoming album "bottom's up"
Listen and judge for yourself.

I was lucky enough to hear a bit of the new Terra Firma album on the weekend. It is very very close to completion. Of course they have been saying that for at least 2 years now, but this time it actually is. Mastering date is set. Guest appearances include Percee P (which is a killer song) and a brand new Certified Wise posse track.
