A few hours ago ChopStar Slim K dropped the third installment to his slowed and throwed mixtape series Purple Children. If you're into the chopped and screwed sound, you'll love this! These collabs with modern-day renaissance man Robert Gallardo are great mixes, through and through. A combination of hit songs and those of up and coming artists makes for a good balance of mainstream and underground, strung together with chops, phasers, and brakes. To fully enjoy the "H-Tyne" experience, listen to the tape cover to cover (the crossfades are unreal!) Check out Slim K's website for his other mixes, including PC 1 and 2.

Jet Lifers get ready for November 20th, when you can cop Jet World Order 2, as Curren$y, Sir Michael Rocks, and the crew announce in the trailer below. And you won't have to wait much longer for the first preview; check back tomorrow for "No Sleep".
Check out the fresh slideshow above illustrating the fusion of artist, brand, and media as we have opened our office doors for a variety of national and local Chicago artists, and gifted them free hats and gear from one of our sponsors — New Era!
Plus! I'm also bringing back a hilarious video we did with GLC when we gifted him some Chicago New Era lids and a Dallas Mavericks one that he rocked in the "Mack On, Mack Strong" video, directed by our own Terrence Jones. Ism!
Just surfed our busy Twitter feed tonight to see that L.A. Laker Devin Ebanks tweeted/facebooked a picture of him on the set of "Great" with Sir Michael Rocks, Mac Miller, & Casey Veggies. Always cool to see the NBA and hip hop worlds colliding and I assume we'll see a "Great" new video soon. Lap Of Lux out now.
