Audio Dope: B-Eazy – Dedicated (Stream + Purchase)

After years, and years, of dropping underground projects, via limited distribution platforms, Jersey, Channel Islands, based Hip-Hop artist B-Eazy finally releases his debut, independent, retail album ‘Dedicated’ on all major streaming platforms!!!

The Bout Dat Music Group release is recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by J-Fab (with the exception of ‘Hits Initialised’ which is produced by Kuba) and features appearances from, singer, Miruna and Verse 1!!!

It also features additional vocals, on both Sienthe Pt. 1 and 2, from his daughters Sienna and Zanthe which make this album a real personal affair on a project where Eazy discusses past issues with substance abuse, becoming a family man and growing as a person.

When speaking on the album Eazy stated “This is a moment I’ve always dreamed of ever since me and (Big) Don walked into Woolworths, 20 years ago, and we put one of our tapes on the shelf and said that one day we’ll release a proper project and here I am, 20 years on, with my first retail album! It’s crazy but, at the same time, it shows that if you work hard enough at something it will happen. I stayed dedicated to this music thing, for two decades, and here we are…finally.”

Audio Dope: The Primarch System – Mad As Hell! (Official Video + Stream)

Enigmatic, Producer/DJ, outfit The Primarch System have released the first official single from the forthcoming, self-titled, project titled ‘Mad As Hell!’ which, through various audio clips, looks hard at police brutality and the system!!!

After the tragic death of George Floyd this record hits hard as it holds a mirror up to corrupt police, and a failing system, over a sample of J Dilla’s ‘Nothing Like This’!!!

This is definitely a true ‘Stand Up and Fight’ anthem for everyone that is against racism!!!

Audio Dope: T.D.K Presents Where Brooklyn At?!?! The Biggie Fat Tape (Mixtape Stream + D/L)!!!

It’s been a busy, but odd, week for WCDJC’s DJ Tape Deck King.

T.D.K recently released the 10th instalment of his ‘T.D.K Presents’ mixtape series, on what would have been The Notorious B.I.G’s 48th birthday, titled ‘Where Brooklyn At?!?! The Biggie Fat Tape’!!!

Featuring a dope selection of freestyles, demos, unreleased tracks and blends (Biggie over Cypress Hill and MF DOOM anyone?!?!)

Stream + D/L the tape here – T.D.K Presents Where Brooklyn At?!?! The Biggie Fat Tape (Mixtape Stream + D/L)!!!

In other T.D.K related news, on May 23rd, his debut compilation album ‘Tape Deck Kulture: The Fat Tape’ was removed from Bandcamp without warning!!!

No official confirmation has been made by anyone on why the project was removed, only 13 days after it was released, or if it will be re-released at a later date.

However the projects lead single, ‘Fork in The Road (An Ode to Craig Mack)’, by B-Eazy & Eirenicon is still available to stream on Soundcloud but all mentions of ‘Tape Deck Kulture’ have been removed from it’s bio (Link here – B-Eazy & Eirenicon – Fork in The Road (An Ode To Craig Mack)).

Was it an intentional move by T.D.K or was there something more behind the projects random disappearance? I guess we’ll probably never find out!!!

On The Line: Interview with Amanda Mack (Daughter of Craig Mack)!!!

Bout Dat Online’s Bean Lebouc (a.k.a G.M B-Eazy) recently caught up with Amanda Mack, the daughter of the late Craig Mack, to discuss what he was like away from the studio, her brother, Asah Mack, and the legacy of her father’s music!!!

She also kindly provided us with never before seen photos, of Craig, from her personal collection!!!

Bean – Firstly I want to say that I’m a massive fan of your father’s music and think he is a true Hip-Hop legend. Away from the recording studio though what was Craig Mack like as a father and a family man?

Amanda – My dad was a very eccentric man. He was really like any other dad. I will always admire the way he was able to make me, and my brother, laugh and I also enjoyed his vivid ability to tell a story. His intelligence inspired me to want to learn all about the world around me. When we did get to be more involved with the Overcomer Ministry I did notice quite a more aggressive shift in his personality like almost to say I could see him get a bit more cold during this time in my life. He was still jolly at times but it was just different.

Bean -If you had to pick one track from your father’s back catalogue which one would it be?

Amanda – Oh man only one track?!?! If I say ‘Flava in Ya Ear’ thats like everyones favourite so I’ve got think of a more personal one. I’ll probably go with ‘The Last Indian’ as that song slaps (Editor’s note – ‘The Last Indian’ is an unreleased track however I’ve heard it and it’s insane!!!).

Bean – Around 2000/2001, after the underground success of ‘The Wooden Horse’, Craig hooked back up with Bad Boy and Puff, which included some features with Black Rob and G. Dep, but did he ever resign with the label, during that time, or was it just like one off appearances for the label as I know, at one point, he did mention about a new album with Bad Boy, in 2002, but nothing ever materialised?

Amanda – I wouldn’t know for sure if he resigned to Bad Boy, because I was so young then, however I do remember seeing Black Rob stop by the house, from time to time, as him and dad seemed to be on the same page. He was very nice to us as well. I liked Rob. When it came to any albums, he was working on, I know he was recording music around 2006, or so, but he stopped that particular project once we established a closer relationship with the Overcomer Ministry and maybe about 2 years after that there was talk about dad releasing another album, like a Gospel one, or perhaps a revised version of the one he was working on earlier possibly.


Bean – What was your father’s relationship with Erick Sermon like? I know he was tight with EPMD, back in the day, and that Def Squad Streaming released ‘The Mack World Sessions’ in 2017. Erick also spoke of him, and Rockwilder, working on a new Craig Mack album, using old a capellas, but nothing has dropped. Any ideas why that might be?

Amanda – I personally don’t know Erick Sermon, or the situation on that matter, but I would say that any back up, with any new music being released, could be because of some legal issues being settled with ownership of dad’s music.

Bean – Your brother, Asah Mack, dropped his ‘Voices’ EP earlier this year and has a real dope mix of Earl Sweatshirt and Joey Bada$$ in his flow. Can we expect anything else from him this year? Also do you have any hidden talents that you’ll be sharing in the future?

Amanda – Yes Asah! That kid is fucking awesome! I can definitely say we can expect more from him in the future. He is sick at making beats, in his free time, as well as on the mic. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic it’s been a little hard, for him, to get studio sessions in, or link up with his connections, but more stuff is coming. As far as I’m concerned I’m more into art and blogging. I’m looking to get my feet into the world of business more. I like to write lyrics, and come up with beats, in my head but I’m not the best at putting them into tangible sound lol.

Bean – Before we wrap up I just want to say a massive thank you for your time and that this has been an absolute privilege to speak with you. Is there anything else you’d like to say to the people about either yourself or your father?

Amanda – Absolutely! Although the circumstances around his death, and career, were sadly not the best my dad was at peace with himself. There are a lot of things you hear about in the media, about my dad, but to be honest it’s about how happy he was, at the end of the day, after all the glitz and glamour. He admired his fans and he loved me, and Asah, with every ounce of his being. As far as I go I’ve just been living each day as best as I can. If you want to catch up, with what I’m up to, my Instagram is Amandamack96 as I really like to connect with people. I like to connect with my hobbies, online, because it’s just so fun and easy to do. I appreciate it when I hear how much people liked my dad’s music! It’s awesome and I appreciate this opportunity to share this with you guys as well. Thank you!

Audio Dope: DJ Tape Deck King – Tape Deck Kulture: The Fat Tape (Stream)

WCDJC member DJ Tape Deck King has just dropped his debut, compilation, project ‘Tape Deck Kulture: The Fat Tape’ on Bandcamp featuring a dope collection of underground Hip-Hop tracks from Craig Mack, Lord Tariq, Lupe Fiasco, Papoose, FONZi NeuTRON, Da Ruckus and more!!!

The 15-track release is available via Bandcamp however this release is a little bit different from most!!!

T.D.K calls the release a celebration of the Hip-Hop culture and isn’t looking to profit from the project and has included links, for most of tracks, for which fans can purchase directly from the featured artists!!!

He has stated that “Some of tracks are available to download for free but either because they were already available for free elsewhere or because I got the rights to do so but for the other artists on there I can’t justify dropping a project for the culture and make money off there art. They deserve there piece of the pie and I’m just here to assist.”

The project also acts as a tribute to, the late, Craig Mack having been released on what would have been Mack’s birthday as well as dropping it under Mack’s, long defunct, label MackWorld to keep the legacy of both Craig and the label alive!!!

Tape Deck King’s unusual release of the project has to be applauded. In an era where DJ’s find ways to make money (at the expense of other artists) he’s treating the culture, and artists, with the respect they deserve!!!
