Come next month when the year-end lists start rolling in, we expect to be hearing a lot about Mr. Collipark (a/k/a DJ Smurf, a/k/a Beat-In-Azz, a/k/a Michael Crooms), the producer behind the two biggest stage whispers of the year (or maybe make that three?). What we didn't expect was to hear Mr. Crooms shouting out Phoenix hip-hop critic Chris Nelson's blog. The latest DJ to contribute a mix to the Lemon-Red Mix Series is ace refixer DJ Benzi, whose Ying Yang-hosted Summer Madness tape got worn out in these parts, and Benzi managed to up the stakes again: among the drops he's got on the record is Collipark hollering at "the Lemon Mix Series" (sic). It goes without saying at this point that the mix itself is ridiculous: recent-fave candy-painted bubblegum rap ("Laffy Taffy" getting mugged by DJ Assault!) and thug-pop shit (the T-Pain/Thrill Da Playa "Yo Chevy" collabo) -- you know, basically everything that Renee Graham hates on -- melted into Benzi's exclusive remixes, urrrthang draped up and dripped out.

GO GET IT: DJ Benzi, "The Lemon Mix Series" at Lemon-Red
