  • DJ CH1N@

    Sick mix! Lotsa luv put into it. It’s mos definitely “The Rebirth Of Slickness”!!!

  • Reis

    Gotta love the guy who complains that 60+ minutes of FREE incredible music is not chopped up into tracks. Guess what? TONS of free editors out there. Grab one and chop em up yourself. Total time from software download to complete chops is less than 10 minutes…is that really an issue in exchange for what you get?

  • Steel

    Dope! I’m diggin’ this one!

  • mastamind

    wow fuckin lame.. couldnt even chop it up . and reis, it shouldnt be the listeners responsibility to chop up a mixtape. there are millions of free mixtapes to dl on the net, what makes this one so special ? it is the djs responsibility to put out a good tape that the we shouldnt have to go and fix to listen to. its ultimately hurts the dj more becuz it means ppl wont be putting his songs on any burnt cds . dj alex j = fail internet dj . nice try

  • dr z

    brahs got me crackin up ova hurr…complaining bout separate traxs….lol.its a free mix…lol.60 mins of free music and still complaing…lol…
    the mix is hella dope and i don’t need separate trax cuz it went straight into the ipod.

  • Huh?!

    No Ladybug, no Digable Planets

  • hoodboy

    dude…butterfly created and produced digable planets.
    i heard he even wrote mecca’s rhymes too…
    so that no mecca stuff is bs.read the 1st cd credentials…
    thats like wendy and lisa saying prince would be nothing
    without them…not!!!

    btw dope mix alex!

  • eazy

    Ladybug’s solo album was pretty dope.
    whatever happened to their comeback album? they’ve been touring for 3 years or so in celebration of them reuniting, but no reunion album yet…

  • sarah*

    saw the show @ southpaw in brkln.
    it was cool.different but cool.
    dj alex rocked a set before doodlebug’s set.
    dude mixed jay z and james brown together…sweet!
    great mixtape…got a copy at the show!

  • split tracks?

    yo! rock-tards… get an mp3 splitter or go back to high schools.

    techmologies got yall confusded.

  • drumroll

  • DigablePlanet

    Where’s Mec…and I can’t believe these cats were in my urrea last week and I didn’t even catch this post. Auuurrghhh!! Well if Mec wasn’t there it wasn’t the same. I wouldn’t see Clef and Pras without you-know-who either.

  • Re

    is there another link???

  • natenate

    Ladybug didn’t want to make any new music, Ish and C-Know did and still do. The new demo Freshout is on this mix, it’s ok, C-know not suited to slower tempo tracks. Saw them live in SF this weekend, Ish’s Shabazz Palaces stuff was crazy! The Digable portion of the show was also live, the band brought out some new stuff in those old stalwart tracks. Love the DPs, Ladybug or no Ladybug. Ish Butler is the truth.
