10 years ago i Made this mix called ExtraOrdinary.
NOW, Part 2 is HERE.
From the liner Notes :
It’s kinda fresh you listen to more than hip-hop…
10 years ago I dropped the mixtape ExtraOrdinary as part of the “all out king” mixtape series. What was on it? Groups like 10, stuff 000 Maniacs, The Doors, Nirvana, & Laura Branigan. Basically a lot of artists that fall outside the realm of urban music. At the time, the usual way of integrating “non hip hop” into the mix was the every popular “mashup”. But on this mix there was none of that. Regardless, it was mixed with a hip hop aesthetic, with the songs flowing into one another seamlessly.
The point of making it was to show that good music is good music. I was trying to get people out of their comfort zone, or maybe realize that the box that they were in musically could be a lot bigger if they were open to it. I’m sure when people heard it some were suprised and not interested. But others have told me that ExtraOrdinary was one of their favorites.
Part 2 is meant to carry on the tradition. Music that isn’t funk, but is funky in its own way. Songs that wouldn’t be considered soul but can still make you feel something. There are songs on here that you will know just because they are part of the pop stream of consciousness. Some of the songs are gems waiting for your eats to discover them.
They are all songs that will be out of the ordinary…
“You gotta do everything… If you specialize in one thing, you really can’t call yourself an All Out King.”
For A LIMITED TIME,we have brought the price of ExtraOrdinary Part 2 Cassette USB back to $15 Dollars.
Listen to Samples below for freezy.
Yeesh how time flies.
Almost 3 years ago i released the Original 10 Year anniversary Boxset, pharm celebrating the creation of my 1st mixtape “Original” back in late 2001 . This was the first time I delved into doing a “digital” release, generic delivering 4 mixtapes on A special USB Drive.
Below are the mixtapes for you to listen to for free via thefuture.fm
Here is a little video that was done on the importance of packaging in the current music climate :
When this was first released only 300 pieces were made.
While I was moving I was able to find a 5 more boxsets, BUT I updated it with some new new.
The usb drive was updated to the “Cassette USB” – a true throwback. Also, I added to the updated boxset, the new mixtape Original5 to the bundle (original5 as a complete single mp3).
There are only FIVE of these available, and I’m doing them at the same price as the last box set – $45 dollars… So if you missed out on it the first time around, here is your chance. Just click the buy button below!

There’s a lot to celebrate these days. thefuture.fm has released a preview beta version of their new website for y’all to see, and in about a month, my 40th Bday is coming up.
Instead of getting gifts though, I want to give back to my fans who have made my career what it is, and with the future.fm relaunching, this would be the perfect time to offer Original for free as a way to celebrate new milestone for both myself and the future.fm.
Hear for the first time officially, Original for digital streaming…
Original : Hip Hop songs mixed with their original sample counterparts. made back in 2001, this was the mixtape that started everything for me. It became so popular that it ended up becoming a series , dubbed the “original mixtape series”.
12 years later, i’ve gotten a lot of new fans over the years, and there are many thefuture.fm fans who have not have had the opportunity to hear it. Now is your chance.
Every week leading up to my bday in June I will be releasing another mixtape in the “original” series, so check back for the upcoming month as I open up the rest of my mixtape catalog for the future.fm followers…

Sweeet Part 2 , site the “sequel” to sweeet . I put that in quotes because, technically Bittersweeet is the sequel… but whatevers. At some point I guess there will be a bittersweeet part 2 etc etc. Like spin-offs from tv episodes. Think of it like that.
If you haven’t heard it yet you can hear it hear via thefuture.fm.
I made sweeet part 2 in 2009, and previous to that the last mixtape (oscillate wildly) I made was in like 2006. So It had been a 3 year hiatus between creative projects, and 7 years since the 1st sweeet dropped.
In between that period a lot had things had happened. I was already on tour with Jay-z. Mash-ups were no longer the buzz, and dubstep had just reared its head for the early adopters to jump on.
With Sweeet part 2 I wanted to bring back some nostalgia and really tie the 1st two mixtapes together. So first I used a picture from the same batch of photos for the cover. In case you were wondering, the baby pictures used for all my covers are pictures of me as a child. Yes, I was wearing a plaid suit coat.
The next thing I did, was contact G-Bo The Pro.
Now for those of you who don’t know, G-bo and his old partner Rei Double R were responsible for some amazing mixtapes and a great influence on yours truly. So much so, that on the liner notes of sweeet, I shouted them out. They inspired the whole style of djing that I did for Sweeet. As time went on I actually got to meet both of them, and eventually was able to call my heroes peers.
For sweeet part 2 , I enlisted the help of G-Bo, to do a drop for the new mix, to tie everything together and to give homage to one of the guys that inspired me to do what I do . His appearance can be found at about 4:24 of the mixtape , where he tells ya’ll that we’re “Blending, not Mashing”. This was the first time I had ever used a “drop” on one of my mixtapes.
Big shouts to these two mixtape pioneers. If you’ve ever enjoyed anything I’ve done, you can thank these guys for paving the way.

The foundation of my career has always been making mixtapes, and I was never able to get them officially online for digital delivery because of the legal issues… until now ;)
I’ve joined thefuture.fm , a digital platform that allows me to not only stream my mixtapes legally, but also gets the artists whose music is on my mixes paid.
From thefuture.fm website –
We built a platform for you to listen to all the best mixes in the world. For you to discover new music. For you to enjoy music non-stop. For you to find high quality music in every genre. We want to give you the most professional DJs; DJs that not only play at the most exclusive events, the best clubs and the biggest festivals around the world, but also up and coming producers scouted from all over the net.
But we didn’t stop there. We also created technology that doesn’t exist anywhere else. Technology that lets you learn what songs you’re listening to, and buy them if you love them. Because we’re streaming only for one reason; so that we can track the songs that get played and pay royalties to the artists who’s music you enjoy.
Helping you find the best music
