Rarely do I dedicate an entire post to a mixtape, but this here is a genuine effort that I had to highlight.
The good homie Trackstar The DJ hit my inbox today with his new tape The Guest Chamber, a collection of Wu-Tang guest appearances on non-Wu tracks. Simple formula, serious results.
Just glancing over the track list makes me know this is special. Rather than follow the trend of dime-a-dozen mixtape DJs with "exclusives" on their digital frisbees, Trackstar holds it down for heads with heat like Gangstarr & Inspectah Deck's timeless "Above The Clouds," Outkast and Raekwon's crisp "Skew It On The Bar-B" and one of my all-time favorite collabos, Method Man & the late great Christopher Wallace's "The What."
Big thanks to the man himself for the cover and links 'cause this is one for your collection. Real recognize real, Enjoy!
