J - Live "Do the Knowledge Mixtape" VOL.1 the late pass 2009 Hip Hop

Words from J-Live about the mix...

"Basically, I got tired of hearing a lot of people say stuff like, "there's nothing new out" or "hip hop is wack now". Upon hearing this I usually run down a list of names of new artists and even old artists with new albums and ask if they've heard of'em. Nope! These people have no idea. There's a lot of good new hip hop. You just have to do the knowledge and keep your ears open. These are some of my favorites from 2009 alone. Enjoy!

MHz 1st official World Premiere

Mhz 1st freestyle on Stretch and Bobbito show '98.

Man, talk about some Bustown history, well this about takes the cake. What we have right here is the 1st time that the MHz appeared on the Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito show. This right here was just the beginning of many great things to happen for the hertz. This was a big step for Bustown Hiphop and the people involved to help make this happen make the story that much better (i just got an idea).

I am not going to write very much about this because I rather have someone that was there tell you the story of this night and all the events that lead up to this moment. But this is some shit that any Columbus emcee, Dj, anything hip hop related needs to download and keep in their library because this one freestyle session did alot for Columbus back in the day. I could keep going for days about this but like I said, I rather have someone else tell it that was physically there. Until then, enjoy the audio.

And much props to dj stepone for uploading this on his blog. As soon as I saw it I knew this was it. I called up the homie DJ Truskills to verify it. Once he told me that Supernatural was in the house as well, it was official.
