Rammellzee Update

Read more » | No Comments »

Quick story: a few hours after making my post about Rammellzee's passing, I got an e-mail from a member of his family. They thought they were making a comment on the post, and their remarks were very sweet, spreading love to Ramm from here to the hereafter. After conversing with them for a bit, I was given info on Ramm's death that I'm now allowed to share. I'm seeing more media outlets reporting on his life and untimely death, but I wasn't seeing much on the cause.

The NY Times did report that he died after a long illness, and I'm hearing that liver failure was what took Rammellzee on the night of June 28th. I'm being told that he didn't want some big wake or anything, but wanted to go out with a party. Details on the service and such are to follow, as the family is still dealing with their loss. Respect to them for holding it together in a time like this. If/when I get more info on this, I'll let you know.

Shouts to guys like eskay for giving his thoughts, and to noz for tumblin' a bunch of Rammellzee quotes, thoughts, videos and such. Dude's legacy is felt throughout the scene, and pieces of his experimentation in a number of fields still resound today. I hope someone does a true tribute or comprehensive piece on Rammellzee, as while I know of him from my own Hip-Hop studies and excursions, Rammellzee on wax can be expensive, so obtaining his work, especially his early stuff, has been the stuff fingers get dusty for.

Another pioneer has left us, but we should use this as another example to stay up on our history, and keep the names of the legends of Hip-Hop ringin'. Keep it locked.

EDIT Here's a Facebook tribute page, and a dope article from Fast Company.

Mic Wilson "Reach Out" x "Good Times"

No Comments »

Been a month since Mic Wilson turned the "Lights Out", and with PreZZure.net turning 2 today, he passed me a couple of jawns from Phase Two, which is out on August 31st...

Mic Wilson "Reach Out": Love the sample on this one, and he goes off on those succulent females that cats are scoping out... everywhere. Those ones you just want to reach out and... yeah, you get me. Nice use of the vocal in the sample, too.
<a href="http://micwilson.bandcamp.com/track/reach-out">Reach Out by Mic Wilson</a>

Mic Wilson "Good Times": Hah, Mic ain't playing around with these beats man! Here's something to tip your glasses to.

Two dope, quick shots... might get another one in the VERY near future.

Rubberoom "Black Box"

Rubberoom "Black Box": The first leak from The Opus of The Opus featured Slug; this next leak features Rubberoom sounding the horns and going in on some warfare shit about the fall of their 3-2-1- label. This is the last track recorded as Rubberoom.

100 Akres Presents The Cyndi Lauper Beat Tape

No Comments »

I love/hate meeting people on twitter and not realizing what kind of shit they are into. This cat @FreshNerd is someone I've rapped with over varying things, didn't know too much about what the guy did, and I get this amazing project in my inbox earlier today! FN flipped Cyndi Lauper's debut album She's So Unusual (yes, that's the one with "She Bop", "Time After Time" and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun") and freaked each track. What might be fun is playing this and guessing which track got flipped - then listening to the very end of each track, as the original is revealed!

Indiana Rome ft. Theresa Payne "Dream" (prod. by InHouse Productions): Smooth track about your dream lady from Force-member @IndianaRome. This is the first taste of his Who The Hell Left The Gate Open project, and is the kind of throwback classic that grown-folks can get down to. Two-step to this with a fist full of that good cognac, ya dig?

St. Joe Louis "Members Only (Remix)"

No Comments »

St. Joe Louis ft. Rew Mec, Daniel Joseph & PH "Members Only (Remix)" (prod. by Def Dom): Behind the scenes, SJL has been working on a number of things. RTD Records will be releasing the single for "Good Morning" in the near future, the project is still on the horizon, and SJL has been coordinating a Remix EP for Almost There. This leak is the first peak, featuring a new track from Def Dom (who culled Brokn.Englsh's The Drawing Board), Elite Assembly members Rew Mec & Daniel Joseph, and the MC formerly known as Pumpkinhead. I already know J57 did a remix for this project, and there should be some surprises in store. Bang!

DJ Delz x Wordsmith Present Jackin' for Beats: Wordplay Edition

Read more » | No Comments »

I actually meant to get this up earlier, but with work being done over on DOA and such, I got sidetracked. We've been leaking tracks for this for a month or so, but now it's time for the full released, mixed by DJ Delz, presented by 2DBz and featuring one of the hardest working MCs I know (and have known for like 5, 6 years I believe), Wordsmith. I saw he just returned from overseas, and I imagine he has at least two more projects to drop before 2010 is over. Features on this include the Nu Revolution camp as well as Roc Marciano, Sha Stimuli, K-Sparks, Ruste Juxx and more!

RIP Rammellzee

1 Comment »

Word from Fab 5 Freddy is that Rammellzee, one of Hip-Hop's true legends, has passed away. If you saw Style Wars, you should definitely remember his seminal track "Beat Bop" with K-Rob and the oft-debated role of Basquiat as producer (many say he worked on the beat, while others say he had more of a Hollywood-esque producer style, aka FUNDING). I'd go on about them any ideas and theories he concocted (hit his website for those), or his roots within the early days of Hip-Hop, but really, you should do your own research. Or do the knowledge...





I'm not seeing any media outlets speaking on this (although it was added to his Wikipedia page), but that's how it goes. I will say that cats like DOOM, Kool Keith and other subverts were cut from RAMMs' cloth. A true original and Hip-Hop Pioneer.

Here's an interview from Noz with RAM circa 2008, and Jeff Weiss posted up an MP3 of "Beat Bop" as well as a dope interview on PotW. Do the knowledge and pay some respect. Rest in Power, RAMM.

I hit you with a preview on Friday, and now the full instrumental EP from EMS' own Explizit One, who has laced beats for cats like Jaysaun, Special Teamz, the mighty Edo G and many more. The ill thing is, he took to this like a film score, "telling the story of a Hustler caught up in the fast life and just trying to find the right path in life, all told in beat form". This is a free preview leading up to E One's album, Out My Mama's Basement.

MTV UK Interviews DJ Cable

From winning DOA/UAF DnB competitions to being featured on Mistajam's show, my boy DJ Cable has been on FIRE! To add to that heat, he was recently featured on MTV UK; he discussed his accolades, #thugstep and other bits, and graciously named checked myself and RTD. Massive respect, Cable! Now just so you guys know, Cable's following up Fuck Thugstep Vol. 1 with a new edition, set to drop in a month's time (or so). It will feature some blends you might have heard before, as well as some fresh exclusives - hopefully by some Brooklyn MC who shall remain nameless. We'll see - as per usual, I'll keep you abreast to that and other bits of thugsteppery. It's great to hear that one of my favorite DJs, and someone I consider a friend, is getting that kind of shine. Nice one.

Gen (PKA Genera'l) represents Trenton, and has been putting in work - you might have heard him on mixtapes from DJs Doo Wop and Green Lantern to local favorites like Plexx. Genrokka has a few projects on deck, from The Credit Union with Money First's Boom Blake, as well as his album Give U Me (the single "Give U Me" should be coming out soon).

I've not listened to today's show to know what transpired - and even from the video, it's hard to tell - but that's the beautiful Velvet Sky from TNA slapping Rosenberg. I'd go ham on some wrestling insider nonsense, but that's for black rasslin'; I will say that Rosenberg does do the Official TNA Podcast with Andrew Goldstein, so don't be surprised if they just pulled an Andy Kaufman/Jerry Lawler on you. Just sayin'! Well played, whatever it is, Pete!

And this isn't the Phoenix Suns Chuck - this is the red uniform Sixers Chuck. The thing is, DTV (who ironically calls me Diddy) plays super Puff on this. As a matter of fact, Cion might be pissed, but I didn't upload the version he blasted - this is the unedited version with DTV goin' ham about you bitch ass niggas ass fuckers. Pure comedy, but like Eminem said "I joke when I say I'm the best in the booth but a lot of truth is said in jest". Deal with THAT, pens.

It's been about a month since "Mayhem" leaked, and J. Slikk let me know that it got some radio play up in NY, which is kind of amazing. I'd been waiting for these snippets from the completed Soul Train Dancer album to come about, and Slikk hit me with the pack over the weekend - had to let them marinate before I drop the bomb today. Let me tell you, this was WELL WORTH THE WAIT! Cy Yung blends that honesty with lyrical wit, and Slikk's beats are the answer to a lot of the bullshit fuckery that BET loves to highlight in their yearly coon fest "awards show". BPA is out here - be on the lookout for the full album on July 6th!

Love that bass, too. Apparently dude has been catching flack for his shit sounding "too mainstream"? I don't really hear that, but I mess with this cut right here.

Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys "Empire State Of Mind (DC Breaks Remix)": For some reason, I'd not heard or known about this tune until yesterday. I always have been and probably always will be a sucker for DnB remixes of popular non-DnB tracks. The thing I don't like about this mix is that there' not really much from the original in here - sure they jack Jay saying "uh huh" in the chorus, and Alicia's singing is the main staple from the original, but there's no verses or anything. This is for cats on E who might have heard the original on the way to the club. Just sayin'.

Pair that with those spastic hi-hats, and Cam, Juelz and Jim Jones could be talking about shooting grandmothers with heroin, shit would sound perfect.

This mix is laid back, a bit more on the Hip-Hop tip than the original (remember all the commotion THAT song started!?), and I kind of wish Ill and Al had a lil more mic time, but it's a different mix than what cats are used to.
