The wave lives. This got that FEELING.

While we still haven’t seen hide nor hair of French Montana’s long-delayed album Mac & Cheese 4, he has been staying up on his mixtape game in the meantime. He gave us Mac & Cheese 4: The Appetizer in December, and today, we get Casino Life 2: Brown Bag Legend. In contrast to its Harry Fraud-produced predecessor, this one’s packed with guest appearances.

Chinx, Chris Brown, Migos, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Travi$ Scott, Lil Durk, Zack, Will.i.am and Curren$y all show up this time around. Production is handled by Moon, Trackformaz, Southside, 808 Mafia, DJ Spinz, Detail, AYO, TM88, Chop Squad, Dolla, Young Chop, Cool & Dre, and Danny Boy Styles.

Let us know what you think.

Oh shit! The long rumoured LIVE AKIRA THE DON WEEKLY DJ MIX PODCAST is HERE! WOW! LET’S HAVE A PARTY IMMEDIATELY! FOR THE SOUNDTRACK IS ALREADY MADE! SPLASH!

In short its an hour long mix, executed live, of music I like, to drop on a weekly basis. Part one has a bunch of rap and trap and dancey stuff on it, a bunch of dope live blends and remixes, and some CLASSIX and did I mention the whole thing was executed live? Exactly.

You can stream it in that Soundcloud player up there, or the Mixcloud one below, or you can subscribe to the FEED and have it beamed into your podcasting app of choice. I just submitted it to iTunes and everything.

TRACKLISTING IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST!

Oh, yeah, I’m great, thanks for asking! Working my ass off here in Suntown, where stuff is as weird and ace as ever (I woke up the sound of Sophia Vergara outside my apartment getting her own star this morning)… making things occur and building our future. I merked another bucket list entry, PLAYING A PARTY AT THE ROOSEVELT POOL on Friday. My audience included Debbie Harry, Boy George, Georgio Moroder and Harry Dean Stanton amongst others. Very very ridiculous. I played The Only Ones and Jim Carrol Band and iLoveMakonnen, and did some inspired live remixes that I could never do again, for twas a thing of that very special MOMENT. And, as I said, something I’d been wanting to do for a long time. When I first came to stay at Wade’s I used to stand out on his balcony, overlooking The Roosevelt Pool next door, listening to the music wafting up and watching the revelry, thinking, that will be me one day. Well, it was me on Friday. And its gonna be me next Friday too. And then every Thursday thereafter as I am starting my own party there, because that’s how you make thing OCCUR! Shout out Joey Diaz, my daily inspiration.

My Saturday Blind Dragon residency was another magnificent celebration of the glory of living. 4 hours in that beautiful golden DJ booth jumping up and down going nuts, smashing out One Hundred And Thirty Six (136) ULTRAJAMS. Harry Styles was in the building again, jumping on tables being wavy. Vin Diesel was out the previous night, singing karaoke with Wade like a G. Apparently he was just as nice as everybody says.

OK, here’s that tracklisting for AKIRALIVE 001. There are a few missing things, like a loop from a Color Me Badd song that runs through the first 10 minutes, but that sort of thing I’ll leave for you to work out cos it is FUN and REWARDING.
