Little Brother Go "Crazy" With The Clipse On New Mixtape
"And Justus For All" unites Southern MC's Phonte and Big Pooh with the Cleveland Cavaliers' official DJ Mick Boogie to present what is sure to be a classic mixtape. In addition to production from 9th Wonder, listeners will be treated to production from the Kickdrums as well as other surprise guest producers enlisted by Mick Boogie himself. With guest appearances from members of the Little Brother/Hall of Justus family as well as Talib Kweli, The Clipse, Kardinal Offishall, Bishop Lamont and Ray Cash, "And Justus For All" is a must have for any true LB fan.
"When you hear the stuff we did for the CD, it's crazy!," Mick Boogie told SOHH exclusively. "I met Little Brother a couple years ago when they did a show in Cleveland, then I saw them earlier this year. They were familiar with my CDs so we discussed doing something together.
"I'm more so acting as an A&R than a DJ on this project," added Mick. "I've been choosing beats and soliciting beats from different producers and talking to different artists about collaborating on the project. It will be half original songs and half unreleased joints -in the Little Brother vein but a little bit out of it also. Right now all Pooh and Phonte and I have been doing is trading mp3s back and forth all day long, trying to get the CD right. My goal is to make this as good as Separate But Equal if not better."
LB's Big Pooh nothing but compliments for Mick. "Mick Boogie is one of the most talented, dedicated, and underrated DJ's on the planet. It's been an honor working with dude as we have both been admirers of each other for a minute. Most people know that we, Little Brother, don't churn out too many mixtapes but when we do, we like to make classic joints and Mick promises this will be another. Get your ears ready!"
"And Justus For All" is slated for release in early September. In related news, Mick Boogie was recently featured alongside fellow NBA DJ, the Miami Heat's DJ Irie in the latest issue of Vibe Magazine. The pair recently collaborated on a LRG-sponsored mixtape due out next week.
