C-HU$TLE’S latest (and likely final) mixtape [though; it does contain original tracks as well] was recorded in late 2014 and later twice again during 2015. The finishing touches were done in Michigan around Christmas and again in Michigan in very early 2016.
The mixtape’s listed Exec. Producers is M. Milliones (TapeDeck/i am OTHER). Milliones was instrumental in dropping gems on multiple recordings produced not only by himself but by fellow Flackasino Johnny Void (aka BLACKNASA [Flackasinos/@TheBlackOpEra].
Mixing and recording duties were flexed by DJ HiDef (TapeDeck/Hit-A-Lik) and by Flackasino new comer ‘Johnny P’ via Rafi Pena [Flackasinos/West Hollywood Connect Gang]. Subsequently there were handled and finalized in Hollywood and Michigan (respectively) times at which Buko was present and on hand and other times through Hit-A-Lik streamcast via satellite holographic projection.
‘CasaBlanco’ had a “soft release” (NO HOMO :0) which garnered 500 views on DatPiff with literally zero promotion of advertisement.
“I wanted to see about it immediately but I really didn’t get a chance to burn it to Disc and bump it in the car, when I finally got to do that I was like – ‘whoa this sh*t is aite, if not pretty decent, if I touch it up and add the updated mix here or there…it’s not un-green-lit!'”
Said Buko to hitalik.com St. Patrick’s Day eve.
CasaBlanco is available for free stream and/or download on DatPiff.
Tape Deck’s so called “better-half” the now Grammy Award Winning Miguel Millionés has ‘done it again’ so to speak.
Tapped by i am OTHER brass to DJ the top-set of the #WatchTheDuck EP Release Party at “the ATTIC” in Los Angeles, a simple examination of the photo set leads any rational viewer to quickly conclude that (and the party itself) [both] to have been an extremely ‘lit’.
Attended by Steve Aoki, Pharrell Williams, Clifford “T.I.” Harris and Tricky Stewart the photo set says it all.
With one fell tweet Hit-A-Lik Chief Executive Officer Charlie “C-HU$TLE” Buko has (once again) proven the epically out of touch [borderline ‘racist’] nature and culture vulture-status of rap genius.
We are all of course familiar with the wild rumors circulated about last May’s ‘incident’ in which Charlie (allegedly) directly contacted RG owner(s) via cellular device and confronted them about ‘Jon Kerry riverboat medaltoss flip-flopping’ on some Public Enemy “He Got Game” lyrics at which point RG executives essentially pulled a Jon Seyferth and “Bitched Up.” #BigSykeVoice That incident resulted in what is presumed to be a still forthcoming diss to RG and/or one of its owners specifically by name on C-HU$TLE’s upcoming mixtape #TrapXI #CasaBlacno #TheInadmissableDepositionOfLuckyChuckyLuciano
It seems this time however RG (now seemingly as a routine) butchered some epic French Montana lyrics (making ZERO effort to verify and/or correct them) for his 16 on the Zoey Dollaz / Puff Daddy (a.k.a. ‘P Diddy’ a.k.a. ‘Money Makin’ Mitch’ a.k.a. “Mitchie”) smash single #BlowACheck.
Charlie apparently discussed the verse (which contains not just one but TWO Michigan basketball references [one of which shouts out Hit-A-Lik hero Jalen Rose]) with BLAKNASA (a.k.a. Johnny Arcade) and felt confident enough to tweet the lyrics aloud on twitter which garnered a response from Zoey Dollaz himself who made no effort to correct him. Thus verifying swag and setting all right, with the world.

In an era where true Hip-Hop has faded from commercial popularity, very few artists seem to be able to be true to themselves, and their craft without being influenced or homogenized by the mainstream.
Dotoz, better known as M. Dot Broscoe is the exception. A long time in the making, The Ganz 1.5 is slated to be a heavyweight followup to the critically acclaimed Ganz 1.0 release. Never compromising quality over quantity, or fads De jour, the Ganz 1.5 is sure to be another classic Dotoz project that will stand the test of time. Dotoz restores the feeling on his new track “Never Give UP,” off his coming release, The Ganz 1.5.
