  • BDTB Presents: DJ Ves 120 x Tomahawk Gang Music “Year Of The Gang” Release | @tomahawkhiphop

    We’re proud to present a compilation mix from Chicago-based Tomahawk Gang, which is a multi-track release mixed by Chicago’s Ves 120. There are tracks on this mix from the crew, which consists of ILL Brown, Maja 7th, Papi Jamon, Mike Schpitz, Waterr, Preach, Visual, Elementz Emcee, and others. Read more and listen below.

    Chicago. New York. LA. Las Vegas. Germany. They have been all over the place but one thing is for certain, they all have Hip-Hop in their blood. Tomahawk Gang Music started as the brain child of ILL Brown (from Chicago, now residing in San Diego) who had a vision of uniting Chicago artists. With groups and labels such as The Juice Crew, Wu-Tang Clan, and Roc-A-Fella giving the blueprint of how powerful a united front could be, he decided to make a change in Chicago Hip-Hop culture.

    With the help of artists such as AOK, Papi Jamon, DJ Ves 120, and Elementz Emcee, they gathered their talent and resources to make Tomahawk Gang Music. With the stable of artists ranging from Producers to Emcees to Engineers, they have become a self contained force that is ready for anything that the music world will bring. Sticking with the classic formula of beats to the rhyme, they have incorporated the old school and new school without compromising sound quality.

    With DJ Ves 120 on the wheels, Tomahawk Gang Music brings to you ‘Year Of The Gang’ Mixtape. This mixtape combines some of The Hawks current singles (Borders, Her, Jumpin In) and previously unreleased material to keep the speakers on blast.

    So be aware, Tomahawk Gang Music is here, and they’re about to make a big impact. It’s the Hawks…Sucka. #JoinTheGang

    Stones Throw unearthed some mixes from Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne to give some insight on why the two linked up to become Tuxedo. Read more below and check out the throwback mixes. The Tuxedo album releases March 3rd.
