Note from AM: I’m pretty busy with midterms right now, so I’m bringing back Jorge from Bang The Box for a guest post in the Remix Tuesdays series. Read his last post here. Huge respect to AM for inviting me back to guest on the Mighty Metal Lungies, but enough..
I couldn’t think of a more appropriate song to cover for my return to writing Remix Tuesdays than Diamond D’s 1997 comeback single, “The Hiatus”. It’s been almost a month, folks. Not quite weekly, I know. Shouts to DJ01 for doing his own remix feature. First, let’s start with the..

eLXavi646‘s YouTube channel is full of classic breaks, some amazing stuff there (especially the “En Espanol” section). GRANDGOOD has video of the Nuts performing material from their upcoming album, Planet Of The Crates. Download: The Beatnuts – Se Acabo (Remix ft.Method Man) Sphere: Related Content
Peep this old ODB freestyle he did for Funkmaster Flex in 1996. Dirty goes in on the “Broken Language” beat like no other. My favorite part is when he mentions “The Count of Monte Crisco”. His interview is cut off at the end, which is heartbreaking. Download: Ol’ Dirty Bastard..
The Knux are a self-described rap duo from from New Orleans, consisting of brothers Krispy Kream (I know, I know) and Al Millio. Recently signed to Interscope, the brothers self-describe their music as “garage-hop.” So far the group have only officially released two tracks. One of them, “Cappucino”, is the..
