Burt Fox "RiotControl Theme" [.mp3 \ .wav]: Been waiting (read: begging Burt Fox) for this tune for the last few months, and he's finally sorted it out. This is the theme you hear at the beginning of the RiotControl NYC podcasts. Just that deep, heavy vibe. Lovin' that sub, loving the whole moody, merky feel of it. Strictlyhedphonesecks.

Last night, off a 22oz of Beck's and a shot of Absolut, I came up with this bio for producer/illustrator extraordinaire, Monsta. And I think it came out damn good. Shouts to Monsta for the fresh tracks, too... some will be surfacing in a podcast near you.

T.I. Speaks On "S.L.U."

No Comments »

I, like many heads last night, got a copy of "S.L.U. (Swagger Like Us)", the enormous joint from T.I.'s forthcoming Paper Trail LP that features Kanye West, Jay-Z and Lil' Wayne. I even posted the joint up... for like 5 minutes. When the cat who sends me something gets a C&D, I tend to retreat. So you won't find the post/link on rock the dub... for now.

In any case, Tip is asking who leaked the track. And I can't blame him. But I haven't heard one blogger or fan who heard it and said it was some bullshit. Quite the contrary, everyone is loving how these 4 beast this epic track. None of us even have 1/16th of the paper these niggas have (well, I don't), but this is one of those joints, like Rick Ross' "Hustlin'", that you throw on and that immediate response is required. And 9 times out of 10, the response is "holy fucking shit this track is the truth". You throw it on, and you get to poke your chest out for 5+ minutes and feel like you too have so much money, your knots can't fit in tight pants.

Maybe I'm just getting a bit too poetic about the most recent ghetto anthem.

One thing I am NOT feeling is the idea that this joint will be featured on Paper Trail and Blueprint 3. Seriously, Jay, that's your fuck up. BP3 should be your return to form, not you slackin' and putting out tracks that will be released a few months before your next event album.

Suspect Red Bull Music

4 Comments »

On the 21st of August, Red Bull held their "Big Tune" beat making competition out in Chicago. I got an anonymous e-mail from a head who was at the venue that night, speaking about some suspect fuckery that went down that night. I'll quote them throughout this piece. Here's the start of it:

...something wasn't right last night... there's supposed to be 12 producers in the battle... before 9pm (they) only had 10 so they went out into the crowd waiting outside to find 2 cats that had beats on em... they found two.. one, a production duo that they didn't give too much of a shit about... THEN a young energetic but shy kid (about 17) named Rob Bates... Now dont get me wrong, Bates did his thing and we were all VERY proud of the kid, but there is reason to believe he was set up to win. They sent the final 2 contestants to New York.... C-Sick and Rob Bates... Both dope... dope enough? im not too sure to be good and honest...they grab producers out the crowd to fill every year, but again this wasn't right. here's what went down... about a half hour before the show, i was standing in the green room and the coordinators of the event were sitting there talking and bullshittin like i wasn't even there. They start talking about the two producers that end up filling the last two spots.. but emphasize on Rob Bates for the duration of the conversation... that's when i heard something that im not entirely sure was meant for my ears. one coordinator said to the other AND I QUOTE "you know it sure would be a hell of a crowd pleaser if Bates came off the street and took this thing"... there was a pause, dude smiled and they started laughing... at this point thinking nothing of it, i left and went back outside... ut once we got going something was definitely wrong... 3 of the STRONGEST producers... the 3 producers that didn't sound like replicas of the other 9 were ALL eliminated within the first fifteen minutes. the first fifteen minutes dog! i started to be concerned. basically they seemingly knocked them out in order to make it a bit of an easier road for Bates to dominate a crop of producers he could easily dominate... he WASNT challenged... all his competition was the same.. they all sounded like southern replicas... C-Sick also had his moments; J-Slikk, Tall Black Guy and J-Rell woulda given them fits in the finals...

Sounds kind of wild, right? Like, you ever watch pro wrestling, where some cat is seemingly picked out of the audience and thrown into a match, only to win (ala Santino Marella's entry into the WWE)? Sounds kind of like that; the e-mail goes further, though:

the winner is judged solely on "crowd participation"... so when the three producers that shoulda competed throughout the evening were knocked out... it MAY not have been the case. the crowd was louder for all 3 of them... it was close so they had them scream again... in all 3 cases the db level for them was slightly louder but the challenger was awarded the win... and ANOTHER thing... one of the coordinators was all in the camera for his interview with him big uppin' Bates like crazy. He didn't do that with any others. its also funny how, the red bull staff was on everyone's nuts for two days... soon as you were eliminated they wouldn't even look in their direction. bates was just really there to pass out fliers for the Pac Div show next weekend... he just so happened to have a beat CD on him...

So what say you? Definitely sounds like some suspect fuckery goings on at this event to hype up the NY show...

So Obama's picked Joe Biden. Not really who I was thinking he'd choose, nor who I think is the right choice, but this cat is 65 - if you're dissing on McCain for being old, why pick this 65 year old dude? I guess it's to bolster the "experience" factor for the Democratic ticket.

RIP Sho'nuff

1 Comment »

Damn. So I just found out that Julius Carry III, the man who will forever live in infamy as "Sho'nuff, the Shogun of Harlem" from The Last Dragon, died earlier this week after a bout with pancreatic cancer. He was 56. And I am crushed. I grew up on that movie, and his "KISS MY CONVERSE" and other lines were cinematic gold when I was a shorty. I never was a fan of Bruce Leeroy, always wanted that red glow. Damn. I need to go buy this flick, now.

Bonus Beats: Rafi hit me with this link back in April, and I am glad I found it again. Such a timewarp. I'm truly devastated.

EDIT: I see Entity Starr posted about this, and included a pic from Taimak's MySpace blog showing love to Mr. Carry.

We all suffer from fear of being different from time to time, and sometimes the people you support turn there backs on you. So to all the people that's second guessing your self go out there and make your dreams come true!!!"

"Ever since I first gripped the mic, people have been trying to tell me what I can or cannot do AND how I should spit over beats. Eventually, I realized 99% of these doods don't know what the fuck they are talking about! When I was Sixteen years old I met Talib Kweli and dood changed the whole direction of how I approached music with just two simple words-- "Do you." So, I'm going to do whatever I want with music. If I feel a like making a heavy metal track-- i'm going to do it. Fuck the naysayers...I don't need Confirmation!" - Black EL

Bonus Beats: Black ELement "The Itis" (prod. by 6th Sense)

Young Jeezy ft. Nas "My President Is Black": Damn. Ill track. I like this more than I thought I would. Nasir sounds dope on that double-time shit he flips, and Jeezy does the damn thing. The Recession sounds like a beast!
