Mally and The Sundance Kid shut it the fuck down when it came to their month releases in the Fall of 2010. They enter the New Year with perhaps their best track to date! As usual it’s a pleasure to be a part of the movement behind these two. Look out for a full album from Mally and The Sundance Kid to drop in the spring.
Cloud Culture is a track that we believed would be an excellent way to exit the year 2010. It is a state of mind we find ourselves in when something good has happened and a celebration takes place. So with this song it would only be appropriate to celebrate the accomplishments we have had over that past year… That’s the whole reason we should have a toast! With that said, enjoy the December installment of the Free On The 15th series and have a Happy New Year!!!
Check out past Free On The 15th series here.

Proud to be a part of this one. Myself and Tyler at aboveGround Magazine came together for an end of the year mix of some of our favorite songs of 2010. Big or small we have artists from all over the map and all over radar. Recall our Best Kept Fresh series that compile our favorite tracks for each month. For this end of the year mix we grabbed the homie Vik Vega (of Chicago’s Midnight Rockers!) to hold us down on the 1s and 2s. He killed it as usual!
Shouts to the homies Vik, Tyler and MBW.

Some of the lyrics hint this maybe a bit dated.
The homie Scheme drops a mixtape of unreleased material and freestyles for the people! Scheme truly had a “helluva year.”
Mixed by DJ Scene and Stefan Ponce.
“This mixtape is a token of appreciation to all my fans who have been supporting me with my projects last year and this year. The Manifesto EP, SRNC (Mixtape), SRNC (Deluxe Edition) have been projects that have meant a lot to me, and I appreciate the support from the fans, blogs, sites, producers, writers, columnist, artists and everyone who has given them a listen. Thank you.
The mixtape consists of released, unreleased, and remixed songs. I gave Scend and Stefan Ponce my catalog and they created a mix with what they felt went along with the “Helluva Year” theme. I look at this project as a year-end wrap up for me. I truly had a helluva year.” – Scheme (SRNC x Molemen Records). Sponsored by RH

Can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one. Asher and produced Nottz Raw combine forces for a delicious little EP of refreshing new material. Every leak on this one has been super raw. The full project looks to be a nice listen.

“Happy Holidays” over Kanye West’s “Flight School”, shot during the the winter storm of Dec. 2010, directed by Dave Wilson and photography by Jesse Cairnie. From Muja Messiah’s mixtape M-16′s (Black Corners).
Happy Holidays from Muja Messiah , Shionaes & Real Spit Ric!
“And one of the best cuts is a bleak, gritty ode to Minnesota winters with guest rappers Shionaes and Real Spit Ric called “Happy Holidays,” which would never be mistaken for a Bing Crosby singalong.” -by Chris Riemenschneider (Star Tribune).
