Not sure if everyone is familiar with westcoast hip hop, but Lateef the Truth Speaker and DJ Z-Trip have been holding it down for some time now. Lateef made his name as a key component of the Solesides collective, (which includes Blackalicious & DJ Shadow, Latryx, Lifesavas and the Poets of Rhythm among others). DJ Z-Trip really pioneered the "mashup" sound and puts on an amazing live set. Lateef with Z-Trip created a mixtape of original beats and remixes called Ahead Of The Curve.

The list of people making appearances is phenominal. DJ Shadow, Slug, Gift of Gab, Lyrics Born, Charli 2na, Q-Tip and DJ Zeph all make apperances on the tape. Check out a track.

Mp3: Lateef & Z-Trip feat. Slug & DJ Sharp - "On My Side" (Lady Don't Take No Blend)
