www.thecryptonline.com Presents: The HipHopHeads Podcast Bonus Episode Mega Ran Live @ Game Underground, Framingham Ma, Feb 15, 2015.
February 15 2015 was a huge blizzard here in the Northeast. I got into my Subaru and drive 75 miles to see Mega Ran perform live @ small video game shop on rt 9 in Massachusetts. Mega Ran came through w/ Storyville to wreckshop for the owners, one other performer and myself. Nobody came out cuz the weather was so bad, Mega Ran was a pro and rocked it like there was a crowd of 500 not 5. I recorded the event and thats what you’ll hear here.
Sunday night live on our podcast we got a package from the scammers @ mixunit.com. They’re bootlegging @Supervisor_HLB and @Chairman_Chow_ new album Cattle Guard that’s only been out for a month. This album can only be purchased legally on cassette and streamed via their bandcamp page or wherever you listen to quality streams. http://supervisorwins.bandcanp.com
Mix Unit Is selling these fake bootleg cds on crappy CDR’s as well as selling the mp3’s on their site essentially taking the food out of rappers mouths. Not only that but they’re also stealing charity albums where the proceeds go directly to the homeless in Boston. The nerve of these scumbags. The Supervisor see’s 0 of these profits, but has put thousands in to releasing the album independently.
Supervisor took it upon himself to order a bootleg and see what you get. Simply put you get a cd on a crappy blue back CDR, you get two cut outs of the cover art and Mish mashed back cover with the track list on cardstock. The images aren’t the highest quality and is using stolen art from their bandcamp page. Honestly, these guys are scum. Imo, it appears they’re scraping bandcamp for mp3’s of any hiphop artist they can find. I’m curious how many disc’s and mp3’s they sell a month and I’m curious if people think they’re supporting an artist but in actuality they’re supporting a bootlegger.
The PO Box for Mixunit is,
The squad @mixunit P.O. BOX 340811 HARTFORD CT, 06134-0811

The sad part is they’re ripping off everyone and nobody is doing a damn thing. From underground to mainstream and these clowns are still striving. We discussed on the podcast we understand if you share some files or dub a tape/cd for your buddy, but actually trying to profit from this is just gross. Let’s come together as a community and take these assholes down. If you have any info on Mixunit email us or call and leave a voicemail. If you know the powers at be drop a dime in the comment section. We will keep you updated as this progresses.

Episode 29 (The Greatest Rap Albums Discussion)
In this episode we see the return of The Supervisor back from South Korea, he tells us stories from his pilgrimage. Mix Unit is back on its bullshit, theyre bootlegging The Supervisor and Chairman Chows Cattle Guard. The Supervisor bought a bootleg from them and we open the package live on air. We discus the top ten rappers of the year presented by Brian B Dot Miller. We breakdown and go through all of Rolling Stones 200 greatest rap albums. This is a long one over 2 and half hours.
I’ve known M-Dot for a long time. Probably close to 15 years. I’ve been listening to his music for just as long anf if you’re a viewer of the site then you know we’re big fans of our Bostonian brother. This time he teams with Apollo Brown and serves M-Dot with just an incredible beat for him to rock to and rock to it he does. To out it plainly this might be my favorite M-Dot track yet. Lyrically M-Dot is at the top of the game and gives an incredible concept track. I won’t spoil it you’ll just have to listen.s
Salute! Peep the track above or click this link to hear it on all available streaming services.
