Thelonious Onederful Esquire presents

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Thriller, Thelonious Onederful Esquire aka THE ONE just hit me with his new concept remix soundtrack album ‘Thrill Kill.’ Using elements and samples from Thriller, he devised a new soundtrack to go along with his favorite movie ‘The Killer’ directed by John Woo. Using samples from the legendary Thriller album, THE ONE gives us a new interpretation of the songs designed specially for scenes in ‘The Killer.’ Make sure to peep each song all the way through as the flips the beats in multiple styles and up to three times on some tracks. This is strictly for fun and promotional use only. Don’t be afraid, click the banner to download.

In case you missed the hype, check out THE ONE’s solo debut on Om Records ‘Superpyschosexy’ here!

Stick Em Free Download

Happy New Year! I was digging through my itunes library yesterday and came across this little mixtape gem from Raashan Ahmad’s ‘Bootlegs, B-Sides and Rarities’. Live and Direct from Raa & Gift of Gab, they give an ode to the old school with a throwback freestyle session. Wordplay is the theme over the ‘Human Beat Box’ and the original ‘Stick Em’ beat laced with some nice Fat Boy Drums. Don’t be shy, click the banner to download.
