We follow Big to Savannah High School. Big Boi surprises all of the kids with an impromptu speech in front of the whole high school. The kids thought they were at a pep rally. Big talks about his foundation for the youth and offers some words of inspiration. Big Boi also launches his community organization “Big Kids Foundation” in his hometown of Savannah.
We follow Big on his tour bus on the way to Athens Georgia, to perform live for the kids at UGA. We film some personal moments in the bus and in the VIP of the venue before the show. Big performs live for a few tracks and passes the mic to a fellow Atlanta MC Yelawolf.
That Ice Cube “Straight Outta LA” documentary about the Raiders was moving. So much that Ice Cube & N.W.A. has been all that’s been playing ever since. Time to keep it in the 80′s though with this edition of OS x Miss Info’s Throwback Thursday’s.
This Brucie B tape takes it back to the essence of everything we call hip-hop though. It’s always dope to go back and hear how it all started. Live From The Harlem Rooftop dates back to 1987 and we’re sure this is the way the party’s in uptown were rocking back then. Expect classic after classic with The World Famous Brucie B on the 1′s and 2′s. Peace to HOM.
In Part two to “The Road to Sir Lucious Left Foot” Big Boi take us behind the scenes to his new video for “Shutterbugg” directed by Chris Robinson. Look out for the full video to come soon. Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son Of Chico Dusty is due out July 6th!

Mike Heron and Statik Selektah also break down blog comments, fans, how Mike got started and they preview a bit more of the track.

“We need to let these people know something real quick about the tape right here. This tape–forreal, this tape is for when you want to straight up fuck. So if y’all ain’t fucking y’all need to hit eject right now… We’re ready to get it on a little something… for when you – you chillin’ with that special someone and its about to be on, or it needs to be on and you ain’t really not sure how to– you know what I’m saying? Yeah, you know what I’m saying. So um, get your candles and get your lotion, get your condoms and your wet naps because its Dirty Luv..” -
Earlier this week WESTCHEDDAR posted some old tapes on their blog, which included some old Throwback Thursday drops we did last year. He also had a video with DJ S&S that had him speaking about his favorite tapes and the process he would go through to drop tapes and how he would get records before anybody else. He also touches on the subject on why got him out the game.
You can check the site for more classic mixtapes, and Something For That Ass 3 (The Final Chapter) after the jump. Props to WESTCHEDDAR for the the links.
Last week we started the Throwback Thursday year with Kid Capri. This week, OS x Miss Info bring you a classic from Ron G. Dead Presidentz showcases everyone from 2pac, Redman, Lost Boyz, MC Lyte, GZA and even though there’s only one blend from the youngest in charge, 1996 was a classic year in hip-hop. Sit back and take a glimpse into time.
If anyone has requests or suggestions for future Throwback Thursday drops, hit the comments.
Since we can’t let go of the past and always bring ourselves to listen to old stuff on the regular (am I the only one that does that?), we figured Throwback Thursdays with MissInfo should be back in full effect starting in the new year. We’re taking this one all the way back to the old school too. Old School Pt. 3 features Kool Moe Dee, Run DMC, Grandmaster Flash, Doug E Fresh and all the pioneers who birthed this hip-hop shit brought to you by Kid Capri.
We’re up to number in 19 in these not so consecutive Throwback Thursday’s brought to you by OnSMASH & MissInfo. This one requires a bit of a late pass considering the Vibe Top 50 list was dropped a few weeks ago, and I wanted it to coincide with that… but regardless, it’s another classic tape. You can find Tony Touch’s Power Cypha (50 MC’s) mixtape [Disc 1] after the jump.
Drake isn’t ashamed to say he writes his rhymes and also says look out for upcoming collab with KiD CuDi and tracks Wayne and Kanye & Wayne and Jeezy, before his album Thank Me Later comes out.
The super talented producer/singer/rapper Novel is back with the 4th installment of Internet Novelties. In this segment, watch him hit the studio to cover KiD CuDi’s “Sky Might Fall” from scratch. He definitely does his thing on here like always. Go cop his single “Makes You Happy” on iTunes now!
