riding real slow...
trap shit, bounce, gucci mane circa 2002 over what sounds like something from Crash Bandicoot, some Colombian champeta from DJ Cobra (as far as i know...from what i gathered from a ton of hella low bitrate untagged mp3s and various message board postings in Spanish, the ones chosen were the only tracks radio worthy in terms of sound unfortunately... plus other weird goings on from Mexico and beyond
via google...hit up "champeta" "dj cobra" via Taringa.net for assorted tracks

is it summer yet?
West Coast, mostly Bay Area with a few exceptions. An assortment of early 90s established classics, forgotten cuts from practically unheard albums (Pimpville?) and a selection of more recent material including a killer album cut from Too Short's album from 2010 and an old school style R&B number from Dru Down's most recent album. Personal highlight: Lil E's Sicc Out The Moe, a sort of peculiar, detached vocoder soaked gangster lament.
mixtape of the week:

no real theme this week, mainly recent stuff...a quick overview:
some throwback LA/Bay Area jams + one track culled from the Thizz Nation back catalogue
Tony Yayo's world weary wisdom (or terrible rapping, however you wanna call it)
Spaceghostpurrp's resurrection of the Memphis sound
Keyboard Kid (based affiliate) with some oddball number that sounds a bit like a spacey Egyptian Lover b-side
Soulja Boy's #based ramblings over Super 3 production
some post #based, post #snooki super tasteless but totally awesome stuff from V-Nasty and Kreayshawn
an assortment of Main Attrakionz/Green Ova stuff that i'm currently obsessed with - the perfect culmination of crazy hypnotic lo-fi crunk/celestial abstract blunts
plus some ye olde classics (DJ Quik, in honour of his upcoming and sure to be awesome LP: The Book of David + a cute and somewhat misogynistic jam from Filthy Phil's second tape offering released while he was on the run after being on America's Most Wanted for allegedly killing a police officer...his label was called Fugitive Records...clever huh?)
