Mike Ladd, best known for his deft flow and funked-up rhythms
on the Infesticons 2000 "Gun Hill Road" album, will release his
tenth LP, "Nostalgialator" on January 15th via Def Jux.
Co-produced by Brooklyn-based mixer Scotty Hard (Wu-Tang, De La Soul,
Jon Spencer),the record was originally released by !K7 in Europe
back in 2004. Now we get a taste of "Nostalgialator" here in the
On a side note it was a Mike Ladd / Infesticons track that got me
kicked off of Napster years ago. I was apparently sharing it and
his label or whatever filed a grievance and so I couldn't use
Napster for a hot minute. It is therefore my great pleasure to leak
this track to you folks in hopes that Mike's lawyers come after me
Bring it on boys!!!!

Dopestyle 1231 Producer Tom C3 has a new album called "Saga of The Simian Samurai" coming out on Threshold Records. Threshold is, of course, Kut Masta Kurt's label so I'm already stoked as KKM never releases anything less than top quality music. Tom C3 was involved in Project Polaroid along with Kool Keith last year before releasing "Saga of The Simian Samurai." I like the way those words sound together, I like the multiple use of the "S" and I like that he is working with Prince Po on this album. The single has already made some significant noise on the college hip hop charts so take a sec and check it out here.
