Just got an e-mail update from the man known as V-Majorz bringing me up to speed on a whole slew of new projects. Since it included free music, I thought I'd hit A to Z with some hips and hops while Annie is on vacation.
Here's what Van had to say:
''The music is great, right now working on my mixtape, Rage Against the Machine, that is being mixed by my boy DJ Rhettmatic of the World Famous Beat Junkies as well as the long awaited EP from myself and Flying Lotus...our group is called Vandalotus of course, and the project is untitled at the moment."
''The boy Rhettmatic did a nice write-up on the kid, and leaked a new song I asked him not to (lol) on his blog...scroll down his blog and see the boy shine...the new song is pretty serious, but folks love it.
''Oh yeah...me and the boy Chaundon from the HOJ hosted a mixtape by none other than DJ Trackstar. And it's FREE!!''
The mixtape is 143 megabytes. Download it here.
''Keep on the lookout for ya boy on Big Pooh's Dirty, Pretty Things album, Khrysis' new solo album, and a few other projects I'm not a liberty to speak on, but you will be surprised and happy for ya fam. Oh yeah, shout out to Scheme magazine and Arize magazine for the love. Be on the lookout for my interviews in both of those jawns in the next coming months. I'm grinding y'all!''
