OK so if you haven’t heard about the concept behind Mick Boogie’s new mixtape The Honor Roll coinciding with the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors then click here and catch up. Anyways the tape is finally out and it is bangin. This is a really cool idea and he got some of my favorite artists and producers to recreate the old and remix them. RAtheMC, Alchemist, A. Pinks, Donny Goines, Torae, Mickey Factz, Emilio Rojas, Marky, Skyzoo, Mazzi, Asheru, 6th Sense, Big Pooh, Kidz in the Hall and I could keep going but I won’t. Phewwwww. The first joint I am going to put up is one of our favorite up and coming artists, RAtheMC spits some rhymes over Too Short’s “Freaky Tales”. The beat was recreated by Judah and both are from the DMV.
Click the page break to get a full tracklisting and some more tracks.
Kidz in the Hall remake Slick Rick’s “Children’s Story”. Double-O provides the beats while Naldege rhymes over it.
Marky of the DMV and Phil Nash remake spit over Naughty by Nature’s “Uptown Anthem”. AB remakes the beat.
I could go on forever with this mixtape because it is the shit. The last track is A. Pinks and Emilio Rojas rhyming over the beat to “Buy You Some” originally done by Too Short. M-Phazes, another producer on the come up who I love, remakes the beat. Congrats to all those honored and thanks Mick Boogie and all the artists for the dope ass mixtape!
