Black Sabbath through the eyes of some mad men. We are proud to unveil this two-song pack of heavy metal god shit, all chopped-and-slowed, as the first single to the upcoming Screwing Yourself To Live project between us and Steady Bloggin’. An experiment in sludge and stonerism. Expect to see that on 12/12/12.
Another Mishka x PTP presentation. The second installment of our co-curated, monthly mix series, High Tide, focusing on some of the day’s most potent raps and the artists behind them.
This month we have a spotlight on Himself The Majestic plus a few PTP thugsclusives by Gorgeous Children (Face Vega and Gila Monsta) and Harlem’s own MUMMZ…amidst a sea of A1 trap shit and other completely wholesome rap stylings. Download away and blast this.

#TRAPRAPFRIDAYS is back at Drom NYC tomorrow night. Expect an evening of finely turnt-up trap rap, country rap tunes, and shake junt anthems spun by the talented likes of KDS (Ballers Eve), Farrington G (Dirty Glove Bastard/BLB), Meka (2DopeBoyz), Mess-Kid, Low Key (U Heard That New), and myself. J. Ross (Gldstndrd) plays host.
Last time this happened, we were overcapacity, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire was the host, and he was daring the “dancing ladies” to “impress” him…as was loosely documented here.
FREE.99 until Midnight – $10 guys/$5 girls after 12am. 10pm-4am. DROM NYC is located at 85 Avenue A (LES, NYC).
Mishka x PTP collabos are always something to talk about. This is no different. The first in a monthly mix series that is to highlight some of the most potent raps of the moment, as co-curated by Mishka and us Fresh Out The Box overlords.
Once the tracks are assembled, I take them to Orchard Beach, whilst wearing a Level-3 biohazard suit (naturally), and begin the hour-long process of placing them in story-telling sequence along the nasty bed of wet sand (and other stuff). Mishka knew about this special ceremonial rap dance that I perform alongside my co-d’s Note D, Jaime Buddha, and whoever else is in there every Thursday on BBOX Radio (at 7:30pm-9:30pm EST, as FOTB), so they stepped in for a twirl or three.

Big ups Mishka (Zach G, Mikhail, Billy Vogt, Whole Milk, and the rest)…look forward to doing this again next month.
Trap Rap Fridays – the 2nd edition – was quite the “turnt up” event: a large room and a half FULL of people, a stage commanded by the Baller’s Eve and Dirty Glove Bastard collectives letting off nothin’ but huge country rap tunes, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire with 40-odd Peel Off muhfuckas, skrippers, flying dollar bills, and assorted other fuckery. Look forward to the next one…be there.
BBOX Radio was there to stream the whole shit live…and here’s a portion of the night which includes eXqo’s in-crowd performance (at the 73:02 mark)…and that which followed thereafter.
Our dudes at the Forty Deuce show extended their hands and graciously invited your Purple Tape Pedigree brothers into the legendary East Village Radio hut. Yep. Even crazier? Upon arrival, the fuckin’ man Sam Sever, as guest DJ for the episode, rushed me passed EVR staff and through the musical vault’s door. Inside, there stood big Geebee, a one DJ Nastee (as co-host), Capital Pete (from The Block show), and a delivery guy who spoke little English, but understood that the styrofoam tower of chicken he carried was a vital component in helping to fuel this 2-hour block of incredible…shit.
Witness the one-man-looping-machine, Sam Sever, take you through waves of timeless joints, gather some history on PTP, hear about tuna fish and chocolate milk (the “other spaghetti and meatballs”), Hari Krishnas, ginko boloba, digest a visit by aNYthing‘s A-Ron The Don, and a whole lot more. Huge shouts to Gee, Nastee, Sever, Cap Pete, Chino, Harmeet, EVR, and everyone else who came through…Note and I were glad to have been part of such a dope episode. Forty Deuce showed us an endless stream of hospitality…so just know that PTP GOT YOU!
Just finished toiling over a hot laptop and buggy iMovie ’08 to bring you this new video. PTP proudly presents to you…the KILLA SHIRT (aka the “Woo Tang”, aka the “John Wu”, aka the “Woo Wu”, aka the “Tony Wza”)!
The ad is a short edit of an original idea, therefore it is only hints to how this shirt fully reps all that killa shit. A double-tribute…tied together in light of this weekend’s promise of Wu doing the entire Enter The 36 Chambers at Rock The Bells. That ain’t no small shit, so PTP figured it was time to do something this serious…and wearable.
On the front, a bold and timeless frame off of John Woo’s masterpiece, The Killer (one of my favorites of all time). Flip it over and you have the classic Raekwon quote (off of Enter The 36…‘s “7th Chamber” intro…)…all silkscreened as a classy purple and black color print. To add on, remember our favorite album that retained a nickname which was then adopted as part of the namesake to this very website? Yes, that Purple Tape. That Purple Tape which was enveloped in audio snippets from the same John Woo work of art as referenced on the Killa Shirt along with words from the favored wordsmith behind said album. Full circle. Everything is everything.
TO ORDER: Please note: we do not have a store/shopping cart system set up just yet. To get your Killa Shirt today, send a message over to email@example.com with your shirt size and desired quantity. We’ll set you up proper.
Sizes: S-XL (2XL and XS on special order)
Also, look out for this shirt (or another edition of it) to appear at a favorite retailer, soon…but best believe you will get the best deal by dealin’ direct. So hit us up.
Seriously, it has been a week since receiving these in hand and the response has been tremendous. Not one email blast, post, tumble, or tweet yet…and we’re almost out of the first batch. Extra EARLY!
Yep. After typing “purpletapepedigree.blogspot.com” enough/one too many times, I’ve come to realize how tedious that URL was…and we all know that tedium is no fun. So today marks a moment of renovation… I present to you, the new URL: ptp-blog.blogspot.com
Of course…you know this already, since you’re here reading this.
First off, I’d like to thank MC Izzy Ice (or “Iz”) and DJ Majesty for forming Da King & I and creating 1993′s Contemporary Jeep Music. If one requested an album which encapsulated the transitional feeling of ’93 (or mid-’92 to the tip of ’94…aka the “early-mid 90′s”), in being a step away from the playful funk motif into a lower-ended, edgier, raw “hoodies and 40-Below’s” sound that maintained the fundamental emphasis on exuding originality, this would be one of those I’d throw in that person’s hand alongside Enta Da Stage, Enter the 36 Chambers, Mecca and the Soul Brother, Stunts, Blunts, and Hip Hop, and Intoxicated Demons. This album was criminally slept-on as it wreaks of ambition and ingenuity (call it “creative drive”, perhaps)…playing host to a wide array of beats, some hard, some still playful, but all with layered samples and whip rattling basslines…plus the flipping through concepts and styles, song to song, flawlessly executed with unusual agility by Iz (style AND content).
Peep the Buckshot cameo ‘pon mention of calling his “rugrats”…real Brooklyn shit.
Not only is the song retarded dope…but the original records Maj used to put the beat together are equally as ill: The “jeep bass” and then some.
The hook/alternate sample.
And lastly, the drums… Check for the break clocking in around the 2:12 mark. Let me just say that these drums have a similar effect on me as “Synthetic Substitution” or “It’s a New Day“, in that I end up going apeshit for damn near any song (or at least the beat, if the song is trash) that has utilized this (let’s see: Dre and Snoop’s “Deep Cover”, the Liks’ “Make Room”, Heather B’s “All Glocks Down”, Pete Rock & CL’s “Anger In The Nation”, PE’s “Get The Fuck Outta Dodge”, LL’s “Mama Say Knock You Out”, De La’s “Eye Know”…you get the pic). Rugged, especially when cats keep the horns in the drum track, to add to the rhythmic element.
Speaking of favorite songs that have utilized the above-highlighted drum break…
