Just days before Notre Dame will take on Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game in Miami, Florida, Mick Boogie and adidas let loose a little something for the Fighting Irish. The American DJ has compiled a selection of pre-game music for the football squad, featuring the likes of 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Common, House of Pain and more. To see what Mick himself had to say regarding the work, check below:
I was asked to create a playlist of motivational songs that could inspire the Notre Dame players before their big game. I decided to take this playlist idea and expand on it… and create a mini-mixtape serving that same purpose. From creating original Notre Dame specific songs with some of my favorite emcees to adding songs that are just motivating and uplifting, it’s a fun and interesting listen. Looking forward to the big game!

adidas x Mick Boogie ft. Donwill of Tanya Morgan – “Victory March,” Notre Dame Fight Song Remix [VIDEO]
To commemorate Notre Dame’s run to the BCS National Championship, adidas partnered with DJ Mick Boogie to recreate the infamous Fighting Irish anthem, “Victory March,” with a Hip-Hop spin. nVMe (pronounced “envy me”) Productions and Mick Boogie chopped up the fight song’s horn section, and layered it with hard hitting drums and hi-hats that give the historical song a refreshing feel. Donwill of Tanya Morgan rounds out the track with some bars that are sure to inspire Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish.
The song is powered by Complex magazine’s sports division, better known as Complex Sports. In DJ Mick Boogie’s case, the “Victory March” remix is just one of many quality collaborations and projects that might have went over your heads this year. That includes the recently released A Mick Boogie Christmas, the Brooklyn Nets inspired Brooklyn Originals, and this year’s edition of his annual collaboration with the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff, Summertime Vol. 3.
If you’re a fan of this, we definitely encourage you to check out the aforementioned projects. Hear Mick Boogie and Donwill’s take o “Victory March” below.

“The idea behind the Brooklyn Originals project came from not only my love and respect for Brooklyn hip-hop artists and their music but also my excitement for the upcoming NBA season and the new era of basketball in New York,” said Mick Boogie. ”I thought it would be cool to combine the logos and imaging of two of the biggest brands out right now–the BROOKLYN Nets and adidas ORIGINALS–into a mixtape project that represented hip-hop to the fullest.”

U.S comedy sketch show Saturday Night Live closed out its 37th season this past weekend, and the curators delivered an all-star musical cast for the finale. Joining Rolling Stones frontman and SNL guest-host Mick Jagger were Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters and Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture who performed a concoction of Stones classics for the show. Foo Fighters and Jagger produced a medley of “19th Nervous Breakdown” and “It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It).” While Arcade Fire and Fraiture performed “The Last Time” alongside the British rock icon. The show closed out with “She’s a Rainbow” and “Ruby Tuesday” in homage to Kirsten Wiig, who is leaving the show for new pastures.
For this season’s finale of Saturday Night Live, the powers that be have chosen none other than the legendary Mick Jagger to host the final outing. The showing will account for Jagger’s third appearance on the program, although he has never previously hosted. He will however be working overtime as he is slated to perform during the broadcast as well. We suggest you mark your calendar for May 19 and tune in.
Following up on the behind-the-screen impressions from Mick Boogie’s dedication to the Beastie Boys who were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this week, the full project has now arrived. The renowned producer has compiled an 80-minute mixtape titled Grand Royal, which consists of notable tracks by the iconic hip-hop trio and rare demos, remixes, outtakes and more. Or to put it in Mick Boogie’s own words:
In honor of the Beastie Boys being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week… I thought it’s finally the right time to do a Beasties mixtape. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time… something people have asked me to do for a long time, actually… but I wanted it to mean something. Now, it’s finally the right time.
I present to you Grand Royal. 80 minutes of my favorite Beastie Boys rarities, remixes, demos, live versions, out-takes, and more. If you’re a Beasties fan, I guarantee you find something new and exciting on this mix!

“Albums like Check Your Head went seamlessly from punk to jazz fusion to dusty, sample-filled hiphop. It shaped my whole musical identity.” Download here.
To make it an extra special experience the world renowned, Brooklyn-based DJ tapped his pal Jonathan Mannion (the legendary photographer behind 8 Jay-Z albums, 3 Eminem albums, Lil Wayne, Nas, Aaliyah, the list goes on and on) to re-shoot the iconic cover from the Beastie’s 1989 classic Paul’s Boutique.
“It’s difficult to sum up in one or two sentences the visual impact that the Beastie Boys had on popular culture,” Mannion tells RapFix. “For me it’s all about their relentless energy. They took creative chances and pushed the borders out a little farther then anyone had before giving a voice to a unique set of fringe listeners (punk rockers, skateboarders, drinkers / smokers, creative people, etc.) who responded so strongly to the still underground movement of hip hop. The Beastie Boys stand for something… they represent so much that was great about NYC… they are true originals and remain so to this day!”
This video above, shot by Sasha and Roman of CNNCTD, follows Mick Boogie and Mannion to the famous LES location where Paul’s Boutique was originally photographed. Mick Boogie also collaborated with Homage to do a limited-edition tee for the release, with portions of the proceeds going to Adam Yauch’s favorite cancer charities. Support the tee here.
