Daniel Joseph & Tommie Chase "Skyline Success"

No Comments »

Daniel Joseph & Tommie Chase "Skyline Success": Two of the mighty Elite Assembly family take Hov's "Success" instrumental and just go bananas. This is taken from their mixtape-in-progress, The Skyline. I'm sorry but my peoples > your peoples. Just sayin'.

Blitz The Ambassador "Emmett (S)Till"

No Comments »

Blitz The Ambassador "Emmett (S)Till": Here's a cut from the one like Blitz, who has been on a serious tear as of late. BTA gives us the history lesson on Emmitt Till, which is one that many still forget, especially in these days where a BLCKPRSDNT draws out the racial undertones that are alive and well within these United States.

Shouts to Alex at Move Forward Music for this one; I was an asshole to him earlier, and I apologize.

Wordsmith "Hook-Up Hotline" (prod. by Strada): I already dropped the video, but with the MP3 leaking today, I figured why not just marry the two. Words does his thing on this one (as per usual), but you gotta give it up to Strada for that club-bangin', commercial appealin' beat. This is a hot one!

General Larry Platt "Pants On The Ground (J. Slikk Remix)"

No Comments »

General Larry Platt "Pants On The Ground (J. Slikk Remix)": Why yes, yes this is the best Larry Platt remix I've heard. I had a feeling one of my peoples was going to put this hilarity into proper context. Love how Slikk even drops the beat at key moments. I literally LOL'd on the busstop this morning listening to this. With so much pain going on right now, take a minute and 16 seconds and laugh a little.

hasHBrown "The Popular Vote": HB goes for broke over Clipse's "Popular Demand" instrumental. While he's been working on his Break Something EP (March 2010), he's also been doing a bit of freestyling, and will be dropping Free (Verses, Priceless) Styles over the next few weeks. Watch out for the first single from Break Something, "Heaven", to drop on 2/8/2010.

Intuition commented that it takes the song on a slightly darker turn, and I tend to agree - there's a lot going on with not a lot of elements. Girls Like Me drops Jan. 26th!

No Comments »

Yes, the sampler to SoulTrain Dancer: A Tribute To Rosie Perez dropped back in November, with word that this would drop on December 15th, 2009. And yes, that date's come and gone and hasn't dropped. It's been 4+ years, and I know the majority of it is DONE (I've heard snippets), but with LIFE going on, shit hasn't been 100% polished. Cy did hit me up and let me know that not only will an official "Dreamcatcher Revisited" single be coming (with some special remixes and such), they've done a new cover AND have a cut with Wordsmith on the horizon! More info on all of this when I get it...

Cy also let me know that the first single off of his Back 2 Lyfe album with Centric, "Special", is available NOW! Hit up the "Collection" section over at freeatlastmusic.com and grab the four-track single today.

The Spitzwell Brotherz "Do Some Dance": Word to the wise - if you're asking a grown as man to do more than a two-step with a smile, you asking too much. I used to be able to do the Running Man and shit, but stanky legs and all this other shit is too much for me. Shouts to Frankie Phresh for this one.

Duce "Nostalgia"

No Comments »

Duce "Nostalgia": Here's something a bit different from this cat named Duce, from his distantLand EP, which is brought to you by GetWellSoon & TheHipHopEffect. Something a bit different, almost surreal. Kind of reminds me of Drake, but a lil more stream-of-conscious-y, if that makes sense. Give it a spin.

Jaga Jazzist "One-Armed Bandit"

2 Comments »

Jaga Jazzist "One-Armed Bandit": Here's the title track from Jaga Jazzist's new album, which drops on January 25th. This is nothing short of intense - reminds me of the proto-rock experimentation of Tortoise, mashed up with a bunch of other headfuckery. Love the dips and dives this tune takes, so many movements and whatnot. Perfect fit for Ninja Tune, which might be one of the best labels on the planet, and is definitely an inspiration for how a nigga like me listens to music. Norway keeps it interesting.

Lil' Jon ft. LMFAO "Outta Your Mind"

No Comments »

Lil' Jon ft. LMFAO "Outta Your Mind": I'm not a big club-goer, and even when I'm in the club, I'm past the age where I'm really gettin' crunk. Even if I'm tipsy, you won't see khal in the club in 2010 going ham. If I did subscribe to that ethos, though, tracks like this would be my soundtrack. It's got a dope low-end, and the hybrid noodling is enough to really make a nigga do some wild shit, be it E or simple assault. I only know LMFAO from that "shots shots shot-shot" song, and I'm not really sure what their contribution to this is aside from some random whiteboy rapping (did I really need to hear beer pong in this?), but to each his own. Po' it up and get outta your mind!

In the blast I got for this track (sup Future Star?), they included this .zip, featuring different cities getting called out in it, including NY, Miami, Las Vegas, and shouts for the Dirty South, Mid West and West Coast. DJs, you know what to do.

It's A Bloggy Blog World #6: RTD

It's not often that I've been interviewed about what I do here at RTD; honestly, I got interviewed for a magazine in Australia or New Zealand, but I never truly knew if it got posted b/c it's not available online, nor could I get a copy of the issue. But it happened. I know people support the things that go on over here. and to get asked by Kasey The Great to answer some questions regarding rock the dub is an honor. They've featured Vlad TV, All That's Fab, 2dopeboyz and a number of other spots that I consider my peers, so to be #6 in DigiWaxx's "It's A Bloggy Blog World" series is a great look. Check out the feature, find out a little more about me and again, thank you to anyone, be it an artist or reader or fellow blogger who's shouted me a word of praise, linked something on this blog or helped me with any projects I've worked on. It's always appreciated.

He sent me a few tracks, this one is over the "Ignorant Shit" instrumental, and he goes for broke, no hooks. When I get the OK on unleashing more, I got you.

RIP Teddy Pendergrass

No Comments »

One of the legends in R&B, and one of Philly's finest, word of Teddy Pendergrass' passing hit the 'Net last night, with confirmation dropping today. Dude's pedigree is certified, with classics like "Love TKO" and "Turn Off The Lights" being staples to many baby-making sessions, and while his career was cut short with that awful car accident in 1982, his legacy lives on through artists like Jaheim and the blasphemous nicknames from T-Pain.
