I've known Coolio since his first days with LowProfile and WC & The Madd Circle. Ironically on Sunday 9/25th a few days before he passed away, I aired our COOLIO vs LAKESIDE KFOX NIGHTBEAT MASH UP MIX on my show.
Here it is, about 35 minutes into the show:

Fire Pick of the Week
October 3, 2022

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.
What is good my Hip Hop friends!!? Summer may be ended on the calendar but out here in Cali, it’s still pressing triple-digit temps on us. Looking forward to cooler days for sure. But that doesn’t mean that the hot rap music isn’t still coming out your speakers! This week I have a hot new project for your ears!!

Straight out of Cleveland, Ohio I bring you a brand-new project, released August 19, 2022, from legendary DJ Lord Jazz from The Lords of the Underground crew. His latest, titled “The Plain Dealer 2” (Premium Records), is for sure a Hip-Hop lover’s dream record.

As many of you might know,
TLOTU (The Lords of the Underground) are one of my favorite 90’s groups and Lord Jazz brings mad flavor to this new project, just like he used to do for them. Jazz rocks us with amazing beats that hook you into the songs right away. Not only are the beats dope but he has a lineup of amazing MC’s to lace down those hot beats with killer lyrics. Veterans like Edo.G, Geechi Suede (Camp Lo), Vince Spencer, Doitall, Pacewon and Planet Asia are just some of the dope lyricists who make an appearance.

11 songs strong, this album is for sure one you will play and not skip through.
Go cop it now, on all streaming and purchasing platforms!

One love til next time!!
DJ 3rd Degree
