Mixtape DJ and radio personality Clinton Sparks has teamed up with Canadian Hip-Hop MC Kardinal Offishall to release the brand new Do The Right Thing mixtape, which hits streets this summer.

The mixtape features artists like Akon, Little Brother, Bishop Lamont, and Daytona with freestyles, brand songs, and remixes by produced by Kardinal Offishall and Clinton Sparks.

The CD will also feature Kardinal's new single "Graveyard Shift," which will showcase the rap debut of R&B singer Akon.

"This Do The Right Thing mixtape right here, this is for the forward thinking MC," Kardinal Offishall told AllHipHop.com. "Some people say Hip-Hop is dead, Hip-Hop is alive, it's in the south, it's in the east, it's in the west, it's in the north, Hip-Hop is in every motherf**ker around the world who love this s**t. So on behalf of Clinton Sparks and myself, we are going to 'do the right thing.

According to Sparks, who is well known for his Get Familiar and
SmashTime mixtape series/radio show, Do The Right Thing will also make
a political statement.

"In a time when Hip-Hop seems as far away from the golden era as it
could get, two music lovers came together to have fun wit this s**t and
touch on a couple of current topics along the way," Clinton Sparks
said. "We tryin to stir the pot a little bit and have people think a
lil' while buggin out to beats we all grew up on."
