You might remember Sweeney Kovar as the guy that was way too close to the Jay Electronica "Act II" situation years ago on the Okayplayer message boards. He caught the bad end of that, but he's so well connected in the Detroit hip-hop scene that he's rebounded from ill repute with what looks like a crazy box set. "Classic Drug References Vol. 1", named after his blog, will feature three exclusive 7" records from the likes of Danny Brown, Blu, Ras G, Knxwledge, and Quelle Chris. The box set will also feature a zine containing interviews with A$AP Yams and Mr. Porter as well as writing from Dart Adams, Hex Murda, and more.
Check out the heatrock that Danny Brown hooked him up with above, and read below to hear the story of Sweeney meeting House Shoes and how he landed an exclusive song from Danny Brown. --Max Weinstein
