As legendary San Francisco label SMC Recordings approaches the most important release in the six years since its inception with ‘Pl3dge’, the third and ultimate chapter in Killer Mike’s ‘I Pledge Allegiance To The Grind’ album series, Southern Hospitality releases ‘Independent As Fuck’ – a mixtape that showcases some recent choice picks from the label’s roster and underlines its diversity and core values of delivering uncompromising, highly quality-controlled but also totally artistically free music.

SMC’s foundation has always been in the Bay Area, helping build the careers of artists like J. Stalin, Roach Gigz, Erk Tha Jerk and Philthy Rich, and giving already established names like The Pack, San Quinn, Messy Marv and The Jacka a place they can call home while remaining fully independent. But in recent years, releases from Pastor Troy, Tech N9ne, Capone N Noreaga, Rakim, Duke Da God and a posthumous album from Big L have marked its ability to expand nationally with ease.

Featured heavily on the mixtape are tracks from SMC imprint Town Thizzness, the Oakland based label that brought us albums from Sleepy D, Stevie Joe and J. Stalin last year, with 2011 bursting at the seams with full-lengthers from D-Lo, Lil Rue, Lil Blood, Beeda Weeda and supergroup N.E.W. Oakland (Mistah F.A.B., J Stalin & Beeda Weeda) following up January’s excellent ‘Trip’n 4 Life’ by Livewire’s Philthy Rich.

Also included are highlights from Erk Tha Jerk’s heavily slept-on ‘Nerd’s Eye View’ and The Pack’s space bass anthem set ‘Wolfpack Party’, as well as loosies from Husalah of the Mob Figaz, The Jacka & Berner, Bueno and many more.

Enjoy. And keep your eyes and ears locked to anything with that SMC logo on it.
