The latest top-shelf mixtape from Mick Boogie & Terry Urban -- Cleveland's dynamic hip-hop DJ duo -- is a Kanye West comp, The Graduate. You can read more about it in this week's Scene, which should be lining your neighbor's birdcage by Wednesday night. Or you can visit Mick's web site to download a copy while it's still up; the website says it's no longer available, but the webmaster hasn't deactivated the link yet. Yes, folks, it's a first: Shoddy web programming is working in your favor. Click the mixtape artwork, and the free mix will download as a .zip file and decompress into 20-some .mp3 files. It's so hot that MTV and 'Ye himself have spotlighted it on their websites.
And if you haven't seen it yet, click the pic to see Kanye on Saturday Night Live, goofing on his infamous Mike Meyers press conference. SNL ain't been this funny since long before "Lazy Sunday" dropped. -- D.X. Ferris
