And here we have it. The rumored lost tracks that follow up Cavalier's first torrent of Weekly Freestyles from late 2008-09 have been recovered, revamped and relaunched in near full splendor and shameless sincerity and humor.
Weekly Freestyles first series has since made its rounds through thousands of downloads from reputable blogs, torrent sites, and online music hubs. Debuting the honest comedic rants of Bwameeks and featuring a sundry of musical choices, Cav's diurnal styled weekly installments featured popular remixes on everything from Rihanna to MIA to Marvin Gaye to David Axelrod.
The Lost Weeks takes things to a new pace, as the mostly unheard last 16 weeks continue with a diverse musical selection and also feature guest emcees such as The Dugout, The Machine, Faro Z, SupaNova and even a then 15 year old producer named Kai Roberts. Cav continues to challenge lyrical bounds and maintain an intimate dialog with listeners sealing the deal with the chuckle inducing WCAV Wake & Bake Radio crew presenting the tracks.
This afternoon radio show features a motley crew of personalities and some hilariously ignorant commentary.
A mix too distinct to be labeled a typical Hip-Hop mixtape The Lost Weeks succeeds more with its on the spot bangers than others do with premeditated mediocrity.
And if that is not enough to convince you, perhaps the 5 videos shorts (and counting) off The Lost Weeks will move you to this well worth it, free download.
