Weekend Round-Up – Butta Verses / Kardinal Offishall / The RZA / Elzhi / Big Pooh

Here are a few bits and pieces that landed in my inbox over the weekend while I was away from the computer celebrating my 33rd birthday – I’m old-school and proud, people!!

Butta Verses “Officer Ross” Freestyle

I don’t usually get too heavily involved in posting beef-related content up on Old To The New mainly because most of it’s just corny WWF-style hype – but I couldn’t help cracking a smile when I heard this new freestyle from Butta Verse’s regarding the recent internet scandal surrounding Rick “I’m A Boss” Ross’s previous career as a Corrections Officer.

Download the freestyle here but for a more accurate example of what to expect from the former De La Soul protege’s forthcoming album “Reality BV” lookout for the new single “If I Die”.

Kardinal Offishall talks to HipHopOfficial about the Canadian rap scene and his forthcoming album “Not 4 Sale”.

Thursday Throwback (Part 24) – Nice & Smooth

Nice & Smooth – “Old To The New” ( RAL / 1994 )

It’s hot outside and this joint always reminds me of the summer of 94 when my friends and I had nothing better to do than chase girls, hang out, tell mother jokes and debate the brilliance of debut albums from Nas, Jeru The Damaja and Outkast.

Shoutout to the homies DB and DJ Maniphest who I know will each be cracking a colgate-grin whilst watching this clip.

Plus, if you didn’t know already, this is, of course, where the name for this blog came from.
