I’ve been doing sneakpeaks of the boxset for the last 2 weeks. With the Boxset, you get the complete Originals Mixtape series – Original, 2 Original, Nonstop, and the BRAND NEW never heard before Original All Out King.

First off, you get a gold leaf embossed giftbox to house the whole package…
Upon Opening you will be greeted with few cool things
A Complete Booklet with the Tracklistings and Original Covers of all the mixtapes in the boxset…
Next , to represent the roots of this mixtape, you get an actual mix “TAPE”, – an Official copy of “Original” on its original medium, the cassette. If you one of them retro kids and have a tape player, you can pop this in and hear how the 1st recording of “Original” sounded like. It was remastered in 2004.
FInally, to show how far times have come since 2001 , we have the mixtapes on their NEW medium – a brushed aluminum branded USB drive
This USB drive will have the 1st 3 cds in 256 kbps Mp3′s. Each of the 1st 3 cds will be have tracked out AND one long complete Mp3 versions .

It will be available for pre-order … RIGHT NOW.
Oh what a night.
A lot of y'all came through, and TRIED to come through to my anniversary party for the 10 year anniversary of "Original", brought to you by adidas last week in NYC.
Basically, it got super packed super quick, AND the person in charge of the door at the club (which I won't even name here) was the opposite of cool.
Below is a video that recaps the event , which included some of the worlds finest DJ's on the wheels...
I didn't get a chance to take pictures that nite so i had to "borrow" some below. Shoot, I didn't even get to DJ the event. Trouble with the venue kept me from getting on the wheels (if you wish to know the details I would be GLAD to BLAB. ) However as you see from above, the crowd didn't miss a step.
Big shouts to DJ Daddy Dog my crewmate from the 5th platoon days, DJ Total Eclipse - my mentor, member of the X-ecutioners / MOTM season 2 , G-bo the Pro mixtape legend who was the original architect of my style , DJ Spinna - the DJ who inspired "Original" , and Questlove.
Shout out to my manager sky for putting it all together, and for Jon Wexler from adidas. Thats my manager below goofing if ya didn't know, next to a dude that pretty much stole one of these special track jackets. Eh, its ok. He's a fan
For all y'all who have been supporting me, thank you so much. Without y'all listening I couldn't have gone this far, and I plan to keep going.
Next time we have an anniversary party though, we'll make sure it's at a GOOD spot, and make sure everyone gets in ...
This is the “save the date” announcement for my NYC dwellers.
This is who we have coming thru to provide the soundtrack for the nite -
DJ Daddy Dog my crewmate from the 5th platoon days
