Brought to you in sound and support by the good folks at DJ Booth, as well as us here at BDTB, you have Indianapolis producer LONEgevity‘s 10-track album made up of songs he remixed from Chicago-based Grumpy Old Men‘s last two projects (#FreeLunch and Sunday Skool). This is a FREE project that you can listen and download at DJ Booth, but you also have the opportunity to grab the project plus five bonus tracks from iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify this evening.
We just recently shared the first single from the DJ Booth & BDTB sponsored project from Grumpy Old Men and producer LONEgevity, and here is the second track that just debuted over at DJ Booth entitled Where It Go. This track features Toronto’s Tona. 4/25/13!
Fresh off inviting rivals to Kick Rocks on the inaugural release off their forthcoming remix tape with beatsmith LONEgevity, Grumpy Old Men return to give their competition another kick in the shins on single number two. Whereas the aforementioned remix was on the grimy side, LONE imbues this cut with a more laid-back brand of swagger, swapping out Don Cannon and Mars’ abrasive synth arrangement for a funkier, sampled beat. His slick bassline and head-noddable percussion are a fitting accompaniment to the bold and arrogant bars delivered by Mike Schpitz and guest spitter Tona. Time for the big question: is this take on the record an improvement over the reader-approved original? If you think so, then don’t miss the rest of the fresh remixes to be found on Sunday Brunch, dropping via The DJBooth next Thursday, April 25.
Today we share the DJ Booth x BDTB debuted single from the upcoming remix-project between Chicago’s (by way of Kansas and Cincinnati) Grumpy Old Men and Indianapolis producer/emcee LONEgevity. Kick Rocks not only features Lone’s work on the production, but also as a rhymer with the first verse on the song. Be on the lookout for a couple more single’s in the next few weeks, and the project hit’s us on 4/25/13.

Not a fan of Grumpy Old Men? Then I have no idea how you ended up on this page—but in any case, you’re kindly invited to Kick Rocks. For those still here, I’m proud to present the world premiere of the duo’s latest effort, song release numéro uno off the duo’s DJBooth-hosted remix tape. Whereas LONEgevity‘s original boardwork was on the grimy side, this version’s bell-fortified bassline has a more laid-back, quirky vibe. As a result, Mike Schpitz and Pete Sayke‘s witty trash-talk comes across as more lighthearted than aggressive. Nonetheless, their punchlines hit home. For more dope reworkings of cuts off recent street album Free Lunch, check out Sunday Brunch when it hits our front page April 25, for free streaming and download.
Sponsored by the good folks over at DJ Booth and us here at BDTB, Grumpy Old Men’s Mike Schpitz and producer/emcee/dj Slot-A have joined together to bring us the long-overdue Have You Seen My Stapler? project. You can stream the entire project over at DJ Booth, and hit the associated links below to cop the project. I’ve personally been bumping Jekyll & Hyde for the last week. Make sure to get this heater!
The homie Pete Sayke (of Grumpy Old Men) is currently in the process of working on a new mixtape album, and this track is the first song he’s let go from the project this song will not be on the project. Dopeness. Download and listen below, and you can check the DJ Booth premier if you’d like here. The beat is a from Maybach’s Power Circle track, and is produced by Lee Major and Kye Beatz.
Side note: I actually have a video on my phone of him spitting this verse outside a club in Chicago back earlier this year. I’m going to see if I can pull that off.
Late last night I randomly decided to start going through songs that came out so far this year that I felt were probably looked over by most. I mentioned it on Twitter, and DJ MetroGnome quickly replied saying he probably had some honorable mentions. We fused the ideas together, and here are 30 tracks total, 15 songs from each of us, that we believe you should check out if you haven’t already. Track listing and download link below. Check!

Here’s the newest project from Chicago’s Grumpy Old Men. If you aren’t familiar with these cats yet (even though you should be), they are a two-man emcee duo made up of Kansas emcee Mike Schpitz, and Cincinnati bred Pete Sayke.
Their new project, entitled #FreeLunch, is the mixtape of mixtapes. Mixed with brand new songs, and songs done over borrowed beats that are simply just as good if not better than the originals, this is a very solid follow up to their previous Sunday Skool.
