Graffiti is the first of hip-hop’s five elements. And this is true for Timebomb as well. Before there was a store, a booming website, an MTV countdown hosted inside, or features in Wiz Khalifa’s and Mac Miller’s video there was rush of the late night bombing mission and the million and one close calls that happen when a crew takes on an entire city with markers and cans for fame.
DJ Mr. Owl helps the fans remember these roots with a 77 minute conceptual blockbuster homage to street art and the fearless writers and vandals who make it happen in the trenches nightly. This end to end burner car pulls out of the station and into Timebomb on the 16th of August where fans of the art and the culture can get hard copies and limited edition t-shirts and stickers. Anyone who listens to this tape will have the mental ammo to be a king. If you slack on it then you might just be a toy so make sure you’re there. To honor the Mixtape and our roots Timebomb Shop is going to have a Summer Time Bombing Sale all day Thursday Aug 16th so stop by if you’re in the Pittsburgh Area.
Mastered by Sayez at ID Labs.

The year is 2011. Corporate greed is hell bent on exterminating the pesky underground musicians who are cutting into the profits of the major labels. They don’t care about little birds, including Mr. Owl – and they don’t want you to care either – “ignore owls or lose job” as they put it. This mixtape tells the story of the struggle of true heads against the bigwigs who want to destroy all real shit. Bulldozing creativity from coast to coast, they intend to wipe out the natural beauty of our audible world and replace it with the musical equivalent of tourist hotels, strip malls, and pancake houses. “You gotta start thinking like an outlaw” if you want to fight back. Spectacular selections from 26 of the dopest artists worldwide constitute the resistance. Listen to this mixtape, because the very future of underground music is at stake. “Ladies and gentlemen, these kids are a little misguided, they have no proof of any owls. Do you folks see any owls? Because I don’t!” Yes, we do see owls. And we know that the powers-that-be are scared of what’s to come.
