Mixtapes of the Week #18 - Old School with a Touch of New Edition (R.I.P. Justo Faison & DJ Wits) Note On Who Is Justo Faison:

Orpheous "Justo" Faison, passed on March 17, 2005 in a car crash at 36 years old. This brother was very important in the elevated status of the mixtape and the DJ to the masses through through his founding of the annual Mixtape Awards in 1995, especially for the Hip-Hop, R&B and Reggae community.

The times I did run into Justo at various events in the NYC area back in the day, he was nothing but a cool bro always down to share information, chill out, etc.

He has been and will continue to be missed for his sincerity and genuiness that he brought in a business/industry/culture that can be at times, extremely difficult on the nice side and crazy on the extreme.

R.I.P. Justo and condolences to family, friends and fans who have been touched by you.

Now on to celebrating what Justo celebrated....

Folks here at and the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast are back again to jump off with some new and classic mixtape posts for y'all. :)

This is our weekly section where hits 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 mixtape and mixshow 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 six 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! *

Here goes:

R.I.P. to DJ Wits who just passed away this past Friday, March 14, 2008 at the age of 25. This bro was extremely talented with his DJ skills (with being his having been blind makes things even more amazing) and grind was on point. Although I never met him personally, I've heard nothing about good words about him from those who have. Below is one of my favorite mixtapes done by DJ Wits:

DJ Parler Presents Sampology: Philly International Chapter (mp3/Podcast Ready Download)

Description from DJ Parler's Website About This Mix:

(February 12, 2008) — New York, NY —SonyBMG & SWAGRICULTURE present the next stage of the SAMPLOLOGY mixtape series, a mixed compilation of Hip-Hop and R&B heavyweights & the original blends that inspired their tracks. Each chapter highlights a select artist, producer or genre.

Recorded in the legendary Philadelphia International Records studios, DJ Parler along with hosts Kenny Gamble & Bunny Sigler present SAMPLOLOGY: The Philly Intl Chapter.

This chapter covers tracks from P.I.R., the 1971 label formed by pioneers of Philadelphia soul, Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff. Mirroring the Berry Gordy & Motown Records movement, Gamble & Huff brought such R&B greats as The O'Jays, Patti Labelle, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Teddy Pendergrass, Lou Rawls, Billy Paul to the musical landscape.

To be released during Black History Month 2008, this February project is a testament to the impact and inspiration that the P.I.R. catalog has had around the world. It is also a predecessor to Gamble & Huff's induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2008.

"This compilation isn't intended to substitute the actual CDs nor thier samples," says DJ Parler. "But to complement the albums and excite those in search of good music. I'm hoping that after hearing my mixes, people will want to dig deeper."

Additional SAMPLOLOGY Series include The K West Chapter, featuring material that Kanye West has appeared on as a producer and/or MC; The J Dilla Chapter, highlighting music produced by the late James Yancey a.k.a. J Dilla. And A Gangster Chapter, inspired by Jay Z's American Gangster soundtrack.

"…a timeless mix for the ages"-
