The PDP Online Store is open for bizness! No more schlepping to shows to cop your favorite PDP gear, only to find out that merch-men Amedeo Sallese and Petey Wheatstraw are far too inebriated to find your size. No more complaints that street team president Tony Sparks is off spinning classic rock somewhere and has left Peace Guy to mind the wares all night. Now you can just schlep to shows to yell at us for using Yiddish terms in blog posts because we just fucking love alliteration.

Anyway, we digress. Click here to shop yo' face off. FREE SHIPPING from now til the grand opening ceases to be so grand.

And, as always, thank you for your support.

Emilio Lopez: The Red Pill

A quick plug for a new project by a card-carrying Friend Of SD:

If you've paid attention to the adventures of Storm Deeznutz over the past half-decade, you may recognize the name Emilio Lopez from our previously released collaborations ("Major League" from Kegstand Poetry and "Whatever It Takes" from Nothing Stays Gold). Or perhaps hip hop heads will recall the Demigodz/DoeRaker$ crew member's verses on numerous releases by underground hip hop legend Apathy. And if not, you'll soon be made aware of the man, as some of the numerous previously-unreleased tracks that we've put together will make their way to the light of day in the near future.

For now, click the album cover image below to download his new mixtape The Red Pill, a free collection released under the moniker 'Mr Lopez':

Hit him up here on Facebook and let him know you're listening.

Sterbyrock: Who's Laughing Now?

Once upon a time, DJ Sterbyrock could be seen doing damage at the rear of the stage at every live PDP performance. Our original steel-wheel-minder, Dusty Frazier, had moved on to bigger and warmer states, and Sterby slid right into the lineup and held it down, show after show, for years.

As we all know, times change, people change, hairstyles change. Sterby found a more lucrative outlet for his DJing prowess where he could better express his styles (and subsidize his fearsome sneaker collection), and Dox decided that rapping was for the birds (quite literally, in a slang-related sort of way) and announced he'd prefer to move behind the tables. Everyone was happy.

So now, on the occasions when Dox decides to relive his former frontman glory, Sterby returns to fill his former steady gig. But in the meantime, he can be found spinning his signature mash-ups to Eddie Money fans and M.O.P. enthusiasts alike at a club near you, while still holding down Warped Wax Wednesdays with SwerveOne on 90.3 FM WRIU, and cranking out outrageously limited-edition mixtapes at an enviable pace.

Here's his latest:

Raekwon - Disposable Gunz
Sean Price - Sean Legend
Radix - Weight of the World
Scarface - Dopeman Music ft. B.James, Monk
Ghostface - Malcolm
Marco Polo & Ruste Juxx - Fuckin With a Gangster
Nutso - This is My Hood ft. Royal Flush
RomenRok - Laughter ft. Gavin Castleton
Celph Titled - Styles Ain’t Raw ft. Apathy & Chino XL
Copywrite - Last Laugh
Rock - Letter to Mike Black
Truck North & The 3rd - Out There
Sean Price & Big Twinz - That’s What We Want
Little Brother - 24 ft. Torae
Nems - Grown Man ft. Sean Price
John Hope - Which One
DooWop & T.O.N.Y - We Got Gunz (Solar Diss)
Raekwon - Just for Laughs
Joell Ortiz - Project Boy
N.O.R.E & Raekwon - Slow Down
Sadat X - X & Bill
Brown Bag AllStars
Cook Classics - Best Of Love ft. Shawn Jackson, Diz Gibran
Troop Raw - That RI Shit
J-Live - The Way That I Rhyme

Falside: Jesus Shaves.

A few weeks back, PDP's phenom producer Falside dropped his latest beat tape on the grateful Innaweb masses, brightening up the soundscape of your hip hop summer. It occurred to us today that while we trumpeted this all over the rest of the 'Net (no Sandra Bullock), we didn't give the info directly to you, our faithful blog followers. So here's the story:


1. My Fucking Records
2. Dusty Stickers
3. Chocolate Box
4. Captain Junkie
5. Mechanics
6. Summer Style Fantastic
7. Messin With The Kid
ft. Isaiah The Tooth Taker, Thekeenone, Reason, Falside*
8. Jesus Shaves

Quite a story, isn't it. Falside isn't much on the words when it comes to the beat tapes. But he sure does bring it with the visuals:

So that's the deal. Free Falside beats for your summer high rides. Go download and freestyle your faces off. Your welcome. And thank you.

For more Falside, make sure to religiously surrender to

The PDP that you've come to know and love over the years actually met the EC fellas while performing at a show with E&A in 2007. And look how that turned out. So you should hit up these shows, cuz you never know just where the magic is gonna happen. You just never know.
