On February 24, the Interscope-distributed Demevolist Music Group released their compilation mixtape, First Order Of Business; the two-disc set features such future stars as Yung Nate, Show Tufli, J. Means, Proven, and Isa. Oh, and did we mention their flagship artist, Charles Hamilton? Though the mixtape is something of a team effort, CH does get the chance to shine solo on the very last track, MTV Cribs, which finds him discussing his own Harlem pad. Though Sonic, as usual, goes off with the verses (who else can pull off a Red Hot Chili Peppers reference?), MTV Cribs is unique in that it features outside production assistance; in this case, The Chonchords pull off a perfect mix of the electric guitar, sitar, and even good, old-fashioned humming. For the few who might have lost faith in Charles Hamilton, MTV Cribs should help restore it.
