AUDIO: Agent Collect’s “O Ren Ishii: The L.A. Selection”

Agent Collect has a nice 75 minute mix you’ll want to pop into your digital device to listen to this week. If you’re into the N.W.A ways of hip-hop, especially on the Eazy-E and MC Ren side, you’re going to love this mix, a wide assortment of the tracks you most likely never heard on the radio unless you have a good station or DJ in your city, and who needs good radio anyway?


RECORD CRACK: N.W.A’s “Straight Outta Compton (Explicit Content Only Version)”

Five years ago, someone out there created a version of the N.W.A song “Straight Outta Compton” and basically removed everything but the expletives. What was a four minute song was shortened to a 19 second track of “fuck”, “fucka”, “fuck”, “shit”, “pussy ass” and a lot more.

The man behind the project is fi5e, known to his closest friends as Evan Roth, and now he has decided to do the entire Straight Outta Compton and edit it down to its essence. Of course not every song on the album was dirty, there are four tracks that were profanity free. You can now download the entire “Explicit Content Only Version” of Straight Outta Compton for free, all three minutes and some seconds of it.

To make it interesting, you can now buy this on vinyl as a 12″ single. All three minutes of this fills up Side 1, so quality will be quite good for something that consists of dirt word snippets. Aah, but you’ll want this for the B-side as it is a “Explicit Content Only Version” of Eazy-Z‘s classic solo album, Eazy Duz It. The 12″ single is pricey, but if you’re a completist it will be worth it. Click here to download the “Explicit Content Only Version” of Straight Outta Compton for free, or order the 12″.
