Okay, you know how I am always you folks not to judge a book by its cover sometimes? Well, this is definitely one of those moments when you should put my advice to good use. The husky gentleman that you see on your left is Juliano. He's actually half of the dope producer team called The Creators from London. Truth be told, one of the hottest rap albums that I bought back in 2000 was The Creators "The Weight" album! That joint had a slew emcees on it like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Consequence, Phil Da Agony, Masta Ace, etc. rapping over some of the tightest production that I had heard in a while. Unfortunately, The Creators never released another project together. I am not sure what the status of their relationship is today, but Juliano is back at the beat making again on the solo tip. He's using the Recordkingz moniker now, and his new compilation album is called "Heavyweight" (which is fitting in more than one way).

This time around Juliano has upped the anty by having even more featured rappers than the 2000 debut album. The list is impressive with lyrics being spit by the likes of: Joel Ortiz, Mobb Deep, Little Brother, Tragedy, Guilty Simpson, Problemz, Evidence, Craig G and The Beatnuts. The production is onpoint throughout, so if you dug "The Weight" this new joint is a no-brainer.

To get a wiff of what Juliano is cooking up, here's a FREE mixtape called "The Heavyweight Mash It Up" mixed by DJ Mighty Atom:
