Trouble has released another vid from his Gucci Ghost project, this time a cover of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” as envisioned by Drew Toonz and Life With Uzi.

TJ Mizell | Live on the J Train

Who says real hip hop is dead? Jam Master Jay’s son TJ Mizell took it back to the essence for his latest scratch video “J Train to Marcy.” Shot in one take aboard the J Train from Manhattan to Brooklyn, TJ hooked his turntables up to a generator and rocked a quick set for a packed train of unsuspecting commuters. Not enough shit goes down like this anymore in NYC, we salute TJ for this.

Capital Steez | 47 Piiirates

02 January 2014, 17.55 | Posted in Music, videos | 2 comments »


Radcollector fam Juan June Medrano and a team of artists, animators and ProEra fam plus support from KarmaLoop and LRG released this video on the one year anniversary of Capital Steez’s death. As huge Cap Steez fans, we were stoked to see the video but saddened at the reminder of a great one lost before the world could understand his greatness. In light of all the garbage hip hop that has come out in the last year, it’s even crazier to think we’ll never hear his voice again.

DJ A-Dog | I Want U Back

adog DJ A Dog | I Want U Back
For our last post of 2013, we’d like to honor the memory of a truly great artist and friend, DJ A-Dog, who passed on to paradise a few days ago. He was an immense spirit, an amazing skateboarder and snowboarder, and a dude who was truly loved by everyone who knew him. He was an early supporter of Radcollector and contributed many mixes to the site over the last five years. You can check them all here. Because A-Dog would want us to keep the vibrations positive, we leave you with a classic Jackson 5 remix he did because title expresses exactly how we feel about him. He led an amazing life and we’ll continue to look to him for inspiration for all the years to come. DJ A-Dog, Andy Williams, Rest In Peace.

Black Dave | Rap N’ Skate

You don’t have to be the biggest fan of Black Dave’s music but you do have to respect his hustle. Like his anthem says, “All I do is rap / All I do is skate” and he’s not lying, you can be sure to find him anywhere in NYC that has either crackin.

Fredo Santana feat. Kendrick Lamar | Jealous

There isn’t an official video yet but Fredo Santana’s new joint with Kendrick Lamar is too hot not to share. This song is the perfect collision of two hip hop movements on either sides of the spectrum, Kendrick goes ham and the beat is ridiculous. We’re gonna ride out to this all weekend!
