We are also proud to be launching our brand new Orange Army Soldier Club subscription membership for 2013 today! For only $100 we'll get you the entire Uncommon Burners 2 bundle above, plus an Uncommon Enemy T shirt, a pair of our Uncommon Slipmats and our brand new Orange Army zipper hoodie! The Soldier Club will be the only way to purchase the hoodie. Joining the club also guarantees you every physical product we make this entire year, that's right, everything we make in 2013! You will recieve all of the merch at the time of it's release, or earlier. It includes any cds we put out, vinyl we create, stickers, t shirts, etc. We can't guarantee what the total value will be for the year, but it's already valued at about $100 right now, even if we didn't press anything else up (and that's not gonna happen). There is a one time shipping cost, but after that, you will recieve everything we create, no extra shipping, anywhere in the world without even asking for it. It will just show up at your mailbox. We'll also throw in some back catalog bonuses from time to time along with some DIY products like exclusive CD-R's, etc. It's never too late to join for this year either, because whenever you decide to jump in, we'll retroactively send you everything from 2013 and all mentioned above!
Nasa just dropped the latest episode of Uncommon Radio and on it he played a brand new, soon to be released, track he produced for billy woods. The track is called Musical Chairs and it will be available on woods' upcoming free release, Wooden Nickels, which will be dropping just before the Christmas. Make sure you keep an eye out for that project from Backwoodz! Nasa laid down 19 banging tracks on this episode, make sure you subscribe to Uncommon Radio on Itunes or peep it here on the site!
Willie Green has just released Days of Future Past, a mixtape/compilation of his "Greatest Hits". Why a greatest hits you ask? Because as he's stated today, he's "dropped over 200 tracks with his own production or remixing in the last 6 years". He and DJ Mo Niklz wittled that discography down to 38 and chose to include Adam Warlock's Infinity Gauntlet alongside bangers like Crocodile Tears from Billy Woods, Had to Be Me from Premrock and Nightmares from Open Mike Eagle (among many others). This shapes up to be a must have and it's FREE.
