Beatsmith and A&R Andrew Kelley has come together with The DJBooth to bring listeners Dope on the Table, an exclusive collection of remixed cuts by Raekwon the Chef.
Originally conceived as a mixtape project in conjunction with the Wu-Tang spitter’s management, but never completed (read the full story at Kelley’s Tumblr), the set has been resurrected in the form of a Booth-exclusive, seven-track EP. Included on the tracklist is Kelley’s reader-approved reinterpretation of Chamber Music inclusion “Ill Figures.”
Kelley provides all production throughout the project, which features guest appearances from Big L, M.O.P., Kool G Rap, Notorious B.I.G., Ghostface Killah, Sean Price, Pusha T, Littles, Fabolous and Big Boi.

This is what I've been trying to say for weeks yo. Take Care is softer than pillows filled with rose pedals. At the same time, homeboy is telling people he'll "catch a body" or have people do stuff for him. Dawg...please.

T.I. takes the time to speak to Billboard as he states that he wants to work with Bruno Mars, Cee-Lo Green, Usher, Frank Ocean, and Miguel (A lot of crooners if you ask me. I definitely think a Frank Ocean collab would be dope).

Sunday, Sunday, SUNDAY! Some news before we get to the instrumentals. Brandknew now has a domain. What that basically means is that we have our own functional website. It's looking real professional. Just trying to get some ads on there and I'll give you guys the link. MAKING MOVES MAN! Also, I have a mic now. So stay tuned for some podcasts. Anyways, we have to tracks from my homie Jon. One of the instrumentals is called "Epic". Another one is called "Franchise". I believe I've shown you guys "Franchise" before but that was the newer version. This one is the original one that me and Jon made. I LOVE this beat. Enjoy.

Man listen...What does it have to take for these "rappers" to have some sort of dignity and respond to some diss records. The whole "he didn't say my name" is getting played out man. Luda repeated "Boy" (Your trademark Sean) throughout the track. Luda also acknowledged the whole REASON behind this diss because you said you created this whole "stop pause flow" or whatever you call it. AND YOU STILL don't wanna say, "yeah, I know it's about me. I much rather sit down and talk about it. It's probably a miscommunication issue." Or something like that. No. You decide to deny the whole thing and even backtrack your comments. Whatever.
