DJ Green Lantern is still bringing quality rap music to the forefront of the genre. His latest single “ILL” is just that. Shot in the streets of Detroit, Green Lantern grabs two incredible emcees, Conway the Machine and Royce Da 5’9″ for a gutter new single.
Conway is ramping up now that the ink is dry on his Shady Records deal and drops a new mixtape with DJ Green Lantern titled “Reject on Steroids.” Featuring Royce 5’9″ on “Ill” and Daringer on the production, this is a banger.
Goodness gracious. Royce 5’9″ and Conway go off on this wicked joint from Lantern’s “The Machine” mixtape. Royce absolutely murders his verse and Conway goes blow for blow on his end. Nothing but rewind worthy punchlines here.
DJ Green Lantern continues his onslaught of remixing old songs from the vault and this time Nas gets the treatment.
For the mixtape, Nas game me a bunch of vocals from songs he wasn’t gonna use and I made new songs with those. “Cops Keep Firing” originally started as an extra verse he didn’t use on “Be A N*&^ Too.” I made a new beat, added the scratch hook and when he heard it he did a new second verse too it. Up until now it’s only been available on that mixtape (with shout outs, drops, etc). Here it is, CDQ and re-mastered for heavy knock in your Beats be Dre’s.

Back in 2010, DJ Green Lantern dropped a remix of “Sweet” by Jay Z on a mixtape called “Creative Control.” Almost six years later, Lantern re-releases the song with some new polish on it for your listening pleasure.
Everybody is taking on the a capella freestyle Kanye West dropped on The Life of Pablo. But this remix by Statik Selektah and DJ Green Lantern is dope as both give their own versions of the song.
