Common – “Universal Mind Control (UMC)” vs. Masta Ace – “Jeep A** Gutter”
Eric B. & Rakim – “Eric B. Is President” vs. M.I.A. – “Paper Planes”

DJ Yoda has created two mixes that will appear on-disc when DJ Hero drops this October:
The Jackson 5 – “I Want You Back” vs. Gang Starr – “Just to Get a Rep”
Little Richard – “Tutti Frutti” vs. Shlomo – “Beats”
