Mixtapes of the Week #9 - Happy New Year (Early Greetings)!

What's good everyone,

Early Wishes for Happy New Year of 2008 A.D. (2-Double "O"-Ocho) and all of that!

I won't be blogging from later on today today until at least Jan. 3rd due to being on my B-Day Vacation (doing New Year's Eve born day celebration in NYC), so I wanted to hit folks up early with the heat rock - after all, what a better way to jump start the New Year than some quality new music and mixtapes for the ears. :) is back in the building where I'm hitting up the people some more some free promotional mixtapes and mixtape podcasts for download that are pretty on point - not just from the FuseBox Radio/ crew, but from all over the place.

To all of my peoples who hit me with hard copies or e-mails of submissions, suggestions, websites and bootleg men (yes, for real, those "hit up so and so for the hot s***" info dropped on me) of various mixtape releases, I thank y'all a lot for supporting this venture.

So your blank CDs ready for these 9 joints and support the local mixtape bootleg man/mom and pop store, DJ, website, etc.

For my DJs, if you do good mixtapes of Hip-Hop, Soul, Rock, House, Reggae, Classics or are a music artist with your mixtape album out you don't mind having posted as promo on the web, feel free to hit the family up at with a link to your mixtape with cover and tracklisting - hopefully, we'll put your joint up on here in the future.

NOTE (as always):

PLEASE don't send me no B.S. with folks:

A. Yelling loud as hell over the song on some fake DJ Clue/DJ Kay Slay/DJ Khaled/Funkmaster Flex ish and I can't hear the damned song but 10 seconds of it (mics have volume control...thanks)

B. Mixtape "exclusives" that are on the radio - if its dope its dope, don't need the fake labeling

C. Overall wackness

* NOTE - These mixtapes are dirty versions, no radio edits! *
