What’s Hot: K-Salaam and Beatnik

K-Salaam and Beatnik – The World is Ours (Free Mixtape), NY is Burning (Free Mixtape)

K-Salaam and Beatnik are two New York cats who know how to make a hot mixtape. Their first big hit was “The World is Ours” which featured the likes of Papoose, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Sizzla, Dead Prez, Bobbito Garcia, Suheir Hammad, Capleton, Black Ice, Saigon and Kardinal Offishal.

This mixtape is straight heat, I still listen to it even though its about 2 years old.

The duo is back in the news these days, after releasing “NY is Burning” a mixtape both in response to the Sean Bell killing and in anticipation of their first commercial release, “Whose World is This?” Though this tape isn’t as good as their first, its still great work, and it should get hip hop fans really excited for this summer, when “Whose World is This?” comes out.

Download “The World is Ours” here and cop their second mix through this link.
