Heavy Rotation Vol. 27 – Bootlegger’s Delight

December 13, 2009

As promised/threatened, a Heavy Rotation full of mashups and bootlegs. It’s a magical place where 1+1 = whatever you want it to be. Get ready to sing along as frontin’ mcs find themselves draped all over beats and melodies they wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot Roland 808.

Previous, less tangled volumes available here:
The Heavy Rotation Archives

Diamonds – Margherita Hustle
First up, we have two selections from Diamonds, an omnipresent fixture of the Chicago/Milwaukee electro scene. The first selection drops Rick Ross over a lighthearted and bubbly late period Herb Alpert sort of track. I have no idea who provides the backing music and can’t seem to find more info anywhere. If anyone knows what it is, I’d be somewhat eternally grateful (based on trends toward immortality).

Diamonds – Miami Vice Unit
The second selection finds 50 Cent’s G-Unit riding shotgun with Jan Hammer in a speeding cigarette boat. Not as infectious as the previous track, but still a hell of a lot of fun.

DJ Paul V – Tequila Lip Gloss (Lil Mama vs. the Champs)
Does what it says on the tin. Lil Mama’s ode to beauty products gets busy with some incredibly drunk faux-Mexicans. And everyone always says nothing good comes from pounding tequila all night long (Tia Tequila notwithstanding).

Fat Joe & Lil Wayne vs. Hot Butter – Make It Rain Popcorn (DJ Johnatron Edit)
Hey kids! Selling drugs provides the sellers with mad cash! Mad cash they will soon be throwing wildly around in the club! I mean, in da club!

Get down to the novelty disco sounds of Hot Butter and throw down with the baddest pushers this side of legality.

Lil Jon vs. Zombie Nation – Act A Fool (Flosstradamus “Ravestradamus” Mix)
Flosstradamus does us all an inadvertent favor, dragging Lil Jon crack-addled hollering into the nearest rave. Tales of drunken shenanigans mesh pleasurably with Zombie Nation’s inescapable hit, which should soon have you rapping like you’ve never rapped before and chanting rhythmically like you haven’t since Blur released Song #2.

  1. I’ve never been to a hip-hop/house/club circus, so thanks. I was afriad I’d eaten to much cotton candy, but have no fear, I pretty sure I can keep it down. Thanks for winning me the giant panda, I had fun!

    • Excellent! If nothing else, it proves you can beat a carnie at his own game, provided you beat the carnie first.

      Thanks for stopping in and taking a listen, RR. Great to see you.

  2. An eclectic collection indeed. I am not sure I could add anything meaningful here, so I’ll just ask where do you find the time to work, raise a family, write for your blog, and find all this music?? Really, how many CLTs are there? Thanks for the massive effort.

    • Thanks for the compliments, FJ. There’s only one CLT but he has multiple personalities and a compartmentalization scheme that puts the NSA to shame.
