I swear, I’m not getting much down on the weekends anymore. I guess it’s the change of the seasons and the fact after what’s approaching almost four years of doing WYDU, I’m starting to feel a bit burned out. We’ll see what happens. For now though, some good stuff in this week’s batch of material. Download it, listen to it, love it…. - Trav

The new mixtape, by Florida emcee Godamus Rhyme, is comprised of songs recorded to the instrumentals from It’s a 6th Sense Beat Yo!, the mixtape was born out of a public challenge from illRoots.com founder Mike Waxx: “To All Artists: Whoever can kill at least ten of these tracks and come with a concept and artwork, we will sponsor your tape.”
Upon downloading 6th Sense’s mix and reviewing the contents, Godamus quickly determined that ten was not enough. “Once I heard the quality of the music, I knew I had to kill every beat on there,” he says. “Who else would be crazy enough?”
amus worked tirelessly to complete the ambitious effort. After first putting pen to paper on March 2nd, he emerged a month later with a fully completed project. “It took me about 2 weeks to write. The rest of the time was spent in the studio and doing the art,” he notes. “I could have done it faster, but I also work a 9 to 5.”
Inspired by the variety of sounds that 6 th Sense brought to the table, Godamus used The Adventures of Rhyme & Sense as an aural playground to showcase his artistic abilities, using his skills as a rapper and singer to offer a variety of stories, social commentaries, and a healthy amount of shit-talking to the mix.
“He went in,” 6th Sense says about the project. “I can’t believe he actually did the whole thing. Respect.”
“6th Sense has so many different styles; it really allowed me to just experiment. Dude’s beats just had a real dope vibe,” Godamus says. “For the first time in a long time, all I had to worry about was being an emcee and rocking out to the tracks. I wrote ten tracks in the first day, and I’ve NEVER done that before. So it was definitely a challenge, but it brought out the best in me.”

The Foreign Exchange feat. Darien Brockington – “Take Off The Blues”
“I was over at Monclair in Jersey for Day 2 of their music festival, and caught up with Jumpoff after he went in for over an hour. It was good to see people still know lyrics, as the mostly white crowd, dressed in tight jeans and uglier shirts, rapped right along with Joe to tracks from Padded Room, his Mood Muzik series and duke’s most notable hit, “Pump It Up” (that shit STILL slams). Here, he talks about ‘s new album, the freedom he’s experienced during his digital resurgence, and the future of JoeBuddenTV.”
Sometimes people can go overboard with the camera effects. Brooklyn’s Junk Science, however, has managed to make good use of the fisheye technique in their new video for “Fire Drill.” Directed by Andrew Gura, the song’s videography is perfectly suited for Junk Science’s unique lyricism, which gives us insight into their most intimate… and… er… interesting thoughts. It’s as if Baje One and DJ/Producer Snafu know we’re the flies on the wall, but carry on anyway. “Fire Drill” is available as part of an exclusive Def Jux iTunes mixtape available now at the iTunes
