asian american hip hop for dummies

I recently heard from DJ Phatrick, former DJ for Native Guns, as well as a host and producer of the Apex Express radio show on KPFA 94.1 FM in the Bay Area... He's compiled several of the API hip hop mixes that he made for the show into a mixtape, humbly titled ("for lack of a better name," he says) Asian American Hip Hop for Dummies. Well, I'm proud to say that I am a dummy, and this hip hop is for me.

Lots of great stuff there, with music from the likes of Lyrics Born, Far East Movement, Native Guns, The Pacifics, Blue Scholars, Jupitersciples and more. The mixtape is available for purchase directly from DJ Phatrick's MySpace or in person at any of his upcoming gigs. Just $9.99 including shipping and handling. If people dig it, hopefully it'll be the first of many such mixes. To learn more, go here.
