The tee is new and crisp, the shorts are just right, sneakers are boxfresh of course. The sun is glaring, the drinks are ice cold and all your crew are off work, everybody chilled and smiling. All that’s missing is the soundtrack to your perfect summer day. Well look no further because we have teamed up with The African DJ himself, Twelve bar fam DJ Spintelect, who has laced us with his favorite tracks of the summer so far, and in the process given you the one missing ingredient to your favorite summer day.
So lean back in that car you spent all day waxing, and press play on the Pink Panties selection, gracing the Twelve Bar playlist and available for download as the thermometers rise over 99, and the warm nights never seem to end. Spintelect, we salute you.
Monster Potato Intro – Pink Panties beat
Peas’n’Carrots Intl beat master Monster Potato brings the crispness and sets the tone with
this exclusive intro, precise and just right….
01. Alexander Spit Feat CBG – Real RSWD
Classic flow from the Spit man, shouting out our beloved Fairfax and sound-tracking a perfect LA
summer’s day to the laziest of laidback beats, with notable lyrical support from CBG.
02. Fred The Godson Feat Diddy – Daddy Gettin' Money
I heard they clothes run big, I'll take that in XXL, I'm fresh man. Yes man. Fred brings only his
freshest rhymes on this amped up banger, and cashes it out in the process
03. Casey Veggies – Other Things
Does CV ever drop anything other than dopeness? We don’t think so. A Young player from LA indeed,
and clearly above his youth. Unreleased track from the Sleeping In Class sessions, with HTC on the boards.
Fresh to def.
04. Big K.R.I.T. Feat Big Sant – Made A Lot
Dirty south flavors from pretender to the throne Big K.R.I.T, showcasing his impressive lyrical and
production talents in equal measure, over a cunning sample of Roy Ayers classic ‘Sensitivity’.
05. Naledge – Epiphany Remix (Twelve Bar Exclusive)
Naledge shows that his stellar work with Kidz In The Hall is on a high par with what he can do on his
own two feet, killing the flow over Chrisette Michele’s ‘Epiphany’ beat. Like an awakening.
06. Balance Feat Clyde Carson & J Myers – Time (Twelve Bar Exclusive)
The Golden State Warrior gets his love game on, with this mellow ode to pcking up a PYT at the club.
All you need is a little more time.
07. Mel – Realest Freestyle (Twelve Bar Exclusive)
Mel seems to have it all. Beautiful looks, crazy flow, pitch-perfect voice, dope rhymes, and LA born and bred.
Put her on the map like the second dedication. Realest MC.
08. Dee1 Feat Mannie Fresh – The One That Got Away!
Dee1 comes with his trademark insightful flow, honest story-telling against dope beats, this time
courtesy of Mannie Fresh and a take on Carl Thomas smooth r’n’b classic ‘I Wish’. Heartaches for summer.
09. Add2 – Don't Trip (Twelve Bar Exclusive)
Chicago riser Add2 drops an exclusive, extolling the virtues of just going with the flow, whilst displaying
exactly why we should all be going with his flow. Roller.
10. Kendrick Lamar – Rigamortus
A high-point amongst numerous recent highs from Kendrick Lamar, rapidly becoming essential listening
on every single joint he graces. Compton’s finest young’un simply stops you in your tracks and freezes
you like the title itself with his incredible rhyme style.
11.KBiMean – Wake Up (Twelve Bar Exclusive)
KBiMean always has something to say that is worth listening to, and on this clarion call to renewed focus,
his flow is as dynamic as ever. Manifesto for action, live and direct.
12.Fashawn Feat Sam Hook – Down That Road
Fashawn rarely comes anything less than correct, and on this mellow ode to losing love he shows
his mainstream chops can live happily beside his authentic lyrics and flow. A perfectly chilled tune to
accompany any summer day.
Monster Potato Outro – 2 Perfect beat
….another Monster Potato roller to end things on the right level. You’re blazed out and blissed.
Close your eyes and just melt away. Real perfect.
