Self-proclaimed triple threat J-Live handles each of his individual skills (MC/DJ/producer) with passion and skill, and his many projects are never less than interesting and at their finest are crafted masterpieces. Each month he has been throwing a "HOTvsDOPE" party @ The SoundTable in Atlanta, GA, playing an eclectic mix of rare, unknown and classic hip-hop. On Saturday 19 he will be sharing the decks with Wu-Tang veteran DJ Allah Mathematics so it's sure to be a memorable evening, which you can read more about here.
More interesting to us not living anywhere near Atlanta, J-Live has also just released the free mixtape "HOTvsDOPE Vol. 2" via his Bandcamp page. Just looking at the tracklsit this looks like a very enjoyable set that could very well brighten up this cold Friday night. There's mostly newer joints on here, so this is a good chance to catch up on bangers you might have missed out on before. And in case you ain't up on the first installment of this series which dropped back in October, make sure to check that one as well.
