Awesome Mixtape, Iron-Fist is the rap label to look out for in the future. Every track on this CD is FIRE.

Proof and Purple Gang bring it on every track, along with, D-12(on one track), J-Hill, Woof Pac, Swifty McVeigh(of D-12)And Kuniva(solo), along with many other Detroit locals.

If you like Eminem, Proof, or any of the rest of D-12 i STRONGLY suggest you pick up this album. If your a Hip-Hop/Rap Enthusiast i think you should pick up this album. This album is one for the ages, better then any other tape out. - Dave K. Clavin


From Hand To Hand, the mixtape’s notes drop from ear to ear spreading the real Detroit hip hop spirit to the world

Global rating of the product: 4.5 stars

Proof s Hand To Hand mixtape allies Detroit s hottest talents. You will meet Proof, the whole IF crew ( Purple Gang, Woof Pac, Supa Emcee), the hot I-Mac group, Quest Mc Quody, Slum Village and many more good Detroit names such as Marv Won of the Fat Killaz on the CD. The mixtape’s assets are certainly brushed up productions: Sick Notes, BR Gunna, J Hill, Jay Dee, DJ House Shoes, Trick Trick , Swifty Mc Vay’s Fire Department contributed to a high quality production.

Hand To Hand will allow the listener to appreciate a full range of various artistic talents.

IF Soldiers fully represent on Times Up: an incredible flow delivery, a murderous spirit, spicy and well thought lyrics, rhythmic drum beats combined with various instrumentals make this track particularly hot. IF soldiers are taking over: Purple Gang, Woof Pac , Supa Emcee and their CEO RIP Proof show some unity. Back is the meaning of raw: opponents better not mess with the IF crew. The track is pure fire.

Don’t miss Supa Emcee’s Play With A Nut. Built on claps, piano, violins and dark basslines combined with Supa Emcee’s powerful lyrics, the track will offer the listener a real perspective about the Detroit hood. Supa Emcee is a real busta . I highly recommend you the song.

Woof Pac’s Western style 1 + 8 N Us song is based on a guitar notes and rhythmic drum beats song. I enjoyed the real OG dimension of the song brought to you by three merciless players in the game.

Macks And Pumps is a beautiful Purple Gang Trick Trick collaboration. The Trick Trick produced song leads you into a menacing, dark atmosphere. Little by little, you will feel the upcoming tension. Time for overheated speech and gun talk. Bells, a dark bassline, violins, claps, keyboard sounds mixed up with the menacing voices of the artists will reinforce the scurrilous intent of the track.

Coming Up With Lent has a little bit of Promatic spirit in it. Proof and Ameer s rapid flow delivery totally matches with the bass sounds and the dope ass beats. Enjoy both players know how.

Don’t underestimate Swifty Mc Vay’s talent! The skilled emcee with smash you up lyrically in no time with his Fyre Department Team. You will find the Lawsuit song on Swifty’s Forest Fyres mixtape, a very valuable solo piece of work that I highly recommend to all of you who haven’t listened to it yet.

Heart Of The Streets combines pan flute and heart beat alike drum beats. Feel the coldness of the streets, the pain of the numerous losses of the street soldiers. One slug will tear people s lives away.

Wot I Look Like fully describes hood fights. Violins, claps, rhythmic beats totally intensify the harshness of the hood context brought to you by the Woof Pac crew.

Quest Mc Cody’s Detroit City gig will barely leave the listener indifferent. The track welcomes you into a quite euphoric ambience that is enhanced with harpsichord and keyboard sounds. Detroit City fully comes to shine. Let’s stand up and take part to the rhythmic and festive gig!

The DJ House Shoes produced Remember When is definitely worth your attention. The swinging track featuring Marv Won of the Fat Killaz will take you back to the golden age of hip hop.

Wudd Up beautifully fits into the Hands Up mixtape. Originally from PG The Mixtape 2006 will allow you to appreciate Purple Gang’s lyrical skills and nice flow delivery. Purple Gang has an obvious passion for rhyming that will shine on the well handled track.

The Beats, The Rhymes featuring Proof and Chino XL is a classic if you ask me. Thanks to Big Proof’s unconditional love for hip hop, the days of the hip hop shop have been kept alive. Guitar notes combined with rapid drum beats will suggest the enthusiasm and the huge passion for a non commercial hip hop that is all about the beats, the rhymes and the mic. While the artists spit on the rap game’s hypocrisy, they will totally convince you about their genuine love for a subtle art called hip hop.

How I Got Over enlightens local Detroit artist J Hill’s talent. Dark bass lines contrast with soft female vocals, while electric guitar sounds will enhance J Hill’s confident voice. I liked the opposition between light and dark, night and day, as suggested by the complexity of the instrumentals.

Russian Roulette allows the listener to step into a dark and menacing atmosphere provided by electric guitar and keyboard sounds. The song teaches you about the fragility of life. Well done, Kuniva.

This That Heat is a beautiful Supa Emcee/ Konflikt collaboration. Organ sounds are mixed up with rhythmic beats. Both artists are lyrically superb. I loved the mixture of scary/ murderous/ gangsta atmosphere of the track.

Royce da 5.9 and Proof worked on a Girls With Da Boom Remix. I recommend you the variation on the Girls With Da Boom Theme that will allow to - Isabelle Esling


4 song reviews

Average Rating: 4 stars

Iron Fist’s Detroit trio, Woof Pac are taking over with an original style that might remind some of you of a Far West atmosphere. Composed of J-Kidn Moe Dirdee and Hostyle, Woof Pac show some teeth in their various tracks, leaving enemies wounded and bleeding on their way. Merciless and inventive, the trio will probably conquer gangsta rap lovers’ hearts from the very beginning.

Him Or Me:

Hammering piano mixed up with drum beats introduce you into the merciless Detroit hood atmosphere. Moe Dirdee is ready to tear the place up. Enemies better say their prayers, because there will only be one winner. Feel the lyrical fire, the overheated speech atmosphere and the passion that animates the Detroit group.

Down That Road

Soft guitar sounds, sweet vocals are combined with rhythmic beats. The ironic lyrics are filled with a great dose of offensiveness. Better handle things straight when you choose to go down that road.

Don’t Know

Swinging beats, whistling sounds and a flow that goes faster than the wind. The group shows some obvious skills in Don’t Kno. The song is humorous and will allow the listener to acknowledge Woof Pac’s talent.

Blow Dem Away

The instrumentals draw a dark and challenging atmosphere. Electric guitar sounds mixed up with drum beats. Woof Pac is determined to take over and to blow them enemies away.

If you haven’t heard about Woof Pac yet, you should definitely check the Detroit emcees here. - Isabelle Esling

Bio

Jason aka J Kidd is no stranger to the music buisness,he can put together a mixtape in a day that sounds like a finished LP, he is a triple threat.
He may not have a major deal but has already been in the game of hip hop since 1995 when he attended and rapped at the "Hip Hop Shop" (premise of 8 Mile movie battles), he then became a regular at "Lush Lounge" where he was awarded a plaque as a Lush Legend, he then took part in freestyle showcases at Alvin's and various other venues.

In 2003 he formed the group Woof Pac along with Moe Dirdee and Hostyle. The trio saw great local success as well as some recognition on BET,national dvd releases and the Beef DVD series which still runs on BET currently.
In 2006 they were signed to Proof of D12 's label Iron Fist,they were featured on his nationwide mixtape/lp "Hand 2 Hand" which featured 3 Woof Pac songs..and were the first signed group to be slotted for an LP release and european tour, 3 months in before their album was released the CEO was killed.

After a breif hiatus, they continued to release solo and duo mixtapes and tour the battle circuit..in 2007 they released a local LP "Wild Boyz" which sold well in Detroit without major distribution

Throughout the career with Woof Pac, Jason has opened for
Wu Tang Clan, KRS 1, Young Jeezy, Fat Joe, Trina, Rakim, T.I. T.I., Rick Ross & DJ Quik, as well as performed with King Gordy, Paradime, Fat Killahz, Purple Gang and various local Detroit fame artists

Woof Pac performed as the last act ever and headlined on closing night at the State Theater before it was changed to "The Fillmore"

Woof Pac as a trio is currently on hiatus to focus on solo projects and J Kidd is currently recording his solo album (hopefully as a national release), as well as a new duo mixtape with Hostyle (as Block World).

The moment you hear J Kidd's vocals and raw perfect delivery,you know you are hearing a voice that is not ordinary or to be passed,this time around he's ready to show what he's learned and mastered in his career thus far, he wants to make Proof proud and show fans of Hip Hop that the songs they hear on the radio and in mainstream media are not the only kind worth getting a buzz.

Real rap fans can't deny his talent, and if Jason has a say they won't
