R.O.E. "Blue Sky (Random Thoughts)"

No Comments »

Not sure if R.O.E. knows, but my birthday is tomorrow, so he actually hit me with an early birthday gift a few hours ago. Grabbing Common's latest No I.D.-produced excellence, ROE really kicks some random thoughts atop the finest track. Straight heat, too. More like a book of rhymes, with ROE just thumbing through the pages, picking his inner-most thoughts and bleeding them onto the beat. Be on the lookout for his TheRadiantChildLP, which he's trying to drop this December. Coast to this one for the time being, though.

WPRB Membership Drive 2011

No Comments »

Here's a note I got from Side-B's Hook Jackson, regarding this week's WPRB Membership Drive: WPRB 103.3FM is having their annual membership drive for the entire week of 10/10/11. This will be Side-B Radio’s 2nd. time participating in this and we’re excited. The membership drive pulls the entire station together and you work with people you normally wouldn’t see at the station but we are coming together for one common goal to raise money so our station can function. Being an independent radio station we don’t have a big corporation behind us and that also gives us the freedom to play records that you normally wouldn’t hear on commercial radio. You have programs like Jamrock radio, Music you can’t hear, Jon Solomon plus many more different programs which makes this station special because there’s something for everyone and no matter what time of the day you will hear various styles of music. I’m asking the Side-B Radio family to help out and pledge this year to the station in large numbers to let management know that the hip-hop community has a strong voice at the station and we do get involved and if that happens Side-B Radio will become one of the cornerstone shows on WPRB and we can bring more ideas to the table about implementing hip-hop meaning more exposure for you! The money goes towards maintaining the station’s equipment either repairing or updating certain things around the station (computers, turntables, cd racks, working phone lines for interviews.) Below is a link if you want to pledge online and different amounts you are able to give. You can also pledge during the show this Sunday 5pm-7pm by calling the studio lines. Make sure when you pledge it’s on the behalf of SIDE-B RADIO and to show my appreciation I will thrown in mixtape from one of the artists that I play on my show. Thank you for not just your support of Side-B Radio but to WPRB 103.3fm. We are one of the last strongest independent stations in the country let’s keep it like that! Thank you.

Milly Esquire - Vintage Milly, B.E. (Before Esquire)

No Comments »

Recently, the B3Vision Group added Milly Esquire to their roster. Should be a perfect marriage, with Esquire massacring anything that's standing in his way. Or just continuing to be the cool motherfucker that he is. Back before he became Esquire, doe, he was Mark Milly. Before we embark on his next phase, he wanted to hit you bitch niggas in the face with some of that B.E. shit. Cuts from 2008 through 2010 make up this compilation, which should get you guys ready for his new EP, which might not have a fucking name, but will drop in December of 2011.

The Combat Jack show continues to roll on. Word is the boy A-King wants the show to be tighter, and this episode was packed with guests, so it made sense.

[RTD Interview]: L.A.

Over the last few years, the mainstream has questioned why there's a lack of females on the mic, while only pushing chicks like Nicki Minaj. On the underground, there's a growing crop of fierce ladies who do the damn thing, and one who's fallen onto my radar is L.A.. She recently dropped her The L.A. Riots project, which blew me away, and she's been building steam on these here Internets over her short time as an MC. Figured it made sense to get to know homegirl, how she got into this game and what prompted her to bring it back to 1992 with her latest release...

I hope you cats didn't sleep on Rome's The Extra Mile, but if you did... check this jawn out then hit a U-Turn and get on that path. Cee has the sharp lines on this one, building it on the ring around Mike Tyson's eye. Dope how this one manifests from one idea into all different zones. Short workout, but it's not light-work - you'll be KO'd before the round's up if you fuck around. The Bmore representer is dropping The Grey Area in the Winter of 2011.

Sketch Tha Cataclysm "Kidney Stones"

No Comments »

Taken from Indie Rappers Do It For Gas Money (Vol. 2), Sketch takes a perfect throwback-flavored Willie Green beat to help flesh out the "love letter/hate mail" of an album to the listener. Kind of an ill idea, when you think about it - I imagine as much as artists, especially indie artists, love their fanbase, it's hard to justify a lot for heads who are trying to eat off of the funds they make, and without that machine to sort of cushion certain blows, they can get caught out there real quick, with nothing to show for it. Part of the game, but yeah I don't hear cats attacking this topic in this manner. Sketch goes buck on this beats, with loads of words and lines flying by you. Definite rewind track here.

J-Zone's Putting Out A Book

Read more » | No Comments »

If you're like me, you're an old fan of the man like J-Zone. Whether it's on the boards creating heat (hell, he has a placement on the forthcoming Has-Lo project) or the hilarity he brings in his rhymes, you always got his ill personality and wit in anything he did. Do remember, though, Zone is a hustler and a smart motherfucker, and on the low he's been writing some ill pieces on his different perspectives on the Hip-Hop game, both past and current. I'm happy to see that homey has actually written a book, Root For The Villian: Rap, Bullsh*t and A Celebration Of Failure (of which you can check an excerpt of the first chapter via egotripland). Zone's book is about the music industry/business, but given his unique view on life (which mirrors a lot of the sentiments I hold on things), it turns into something more. Peep Zone's breakdown after the jump, read the Chapter 1 excerpt, then cop the book when he drops it. I will have this read soon - need to get back on my literary dean! I know this is set to drop in Fall of 2011, although via govillaingo.com, Zone is looking at a November 1st release date. Keep on the look out for all of that!

Billy Woods x Elucid "Bank of America"

A couple of weeks ago, I posted the awesome "Demolition", which was by Elucid and AM Breakups, who I learned are working as Cult Favorite. Be on the lookout, them fools have a grip of tunes on deck. Thematically, atop a better use of Nina Simone than The Throne used, Gutta revisits some of the feelings from "My Mayor Is A Billionaire", and in an era where #OccupyWallStreet is the name of the game, cuts like this from niggas are necessary. More of that Black CNN shit we need. This is another jawn from The Cost Of Living... you still sleeping!? Backwoodz stand up.

Here's a dope project I got from the L.I.F.E. Crew, featuring MCs Mane Rok & Dyalekt dropping an EP rapping over nothing but tracks utilizing Santana samples. My mom put me onto a number of Santana classics when I was a shorty, so this idea stuck out to me dumb quick. For this cut, taken from Santanamation, they (obviously) use "Black Magic Woman", flowing that intoxicating fury over a nicely used sample. Something to kick back or roll up to. Apparently this dropped early last month. Get involved.

The boy Black Collar Biz ain't playing. This track right here? Shows the maturity he bleeds while cats his age still stuck on dumb shit. It's good to hear him bring what I see in him during his live performances to these tracks. He kicks his story on this one, briefly, but feels like he's speaking to the babies out there. A few of my co-workers and I were speaking about how crazy our kids are going to have it based on the niggas they will have to look up on. You have to impart that knowledge on them like your grandparents tried to raise you. They need to learn those lessons. Look at yourself, learn from your mistakes, and pass that knowledge to the youth. Rise up.

One of the cats I truly enjoyed speaking with over the Summer of 2011 Garden Variety shows was the homey Venemous2000. He has a dope personality, is a great emcee, and has them real aspirations for his shit. This DJ Priority-produced BANGER is right up my alley, too. They definitely sampled some classic LL Cool J lines, but this isn't some cornball bullshit. Straight Hip-Hop fury. Love those tough drums, and that deep bass. This shit goes ham. Be on the lookout for their Pre-Legendary Status album.

I said it before, and I'll type it again: Jersey's Cymarshall Law is the truth, and when he touches Mr. Joeker beats? It's a match made in Hip-Hop Heaven. Law has a dope way he throws harmonies on his lines, and adds or mutes the intensity needed for these beats. They recently dropped their Hip Hop In The Soul 2 album, and word is you can cop or download for free. I say grab it for free, and support it. This is pure love for the genre being filtered into a cohesive project. Niggas know.

Homework Beats Vol. 1

Read more » | 1 Comment »

Sometimes I get ideas and don't know what the hell to do with them. Other times, I get an idea and work that shit out an hour later. This mix is one of the latter. Helping my son with his homework, I noticed he responded well to working while listening to music. Not full-on lyrics and stuff, but beats. All of my mixes had odd cuts and curses in them, though, so I figured I'd knock out a quick mix of instrumentals that should get him going, and keep him rocking while busting out his letters and numbers. Nothing too crazy on this one, just some dope instrumentals. A little over a half hour. Maybe more in the future.

As we continue to inundate you lot with that New Houston flavor, here's a jawn from Rob Jay, taken from his forthcoming Millionaire Before 30 EP, which I will say I've had the opportunity to sample. It's produced entirely by Ammbush from the Drums & Ammo / SWTBRDS camp, and will be a real treat for you fans who like a little substance with your entertainment. Rob's first leak features him imagining himself of a Harlem kid from the 1960s. He's ill with the visuals he paints with his rhymes, building a moving portrait of the problems our community had to endure to get to where we are now. And you niggas still wanna party ya life away. Pick up a dream and follow it. Millionaire Before 30 drops October 24th.

It's not often that I get interviewed for the myriad of things I get myself into on the daily. The homey Po from popolitickin.com has been someone I've spoke with off and on for the last few years - he's also a fan of pro wrestling, and has contributed to blackrasslin. He hit me the other day, asking to interview me for a series he was doing, shining light on Industry cats, and it just went live this morning. I always feel like I'm pretty far removed from "the industry", but I guess with some of the movements I've made, I have a lil' bit of say on things. People listening though? In any case, you can hear me talking that shit about how I got into starting RTD, a bit about the projects I've helped present and create, and some opinions and knowledge for those in this game and/or trying to get into this game. Thanks, Po!

Shouts to Ricardo and the Fried My Little Brain family for helping present this 20 minute trek into some dubstep you might not be up on. Tunes included from the likes of Caspa, 16bit, Lunice and others, with remix pressure from Skream, Ty Cody and more. Fall funk for your earholes. Expect a new mix next week. Seriously. And if you're in Brooklyn tonight, you can catch Nappy do this live. Many shouts to Squincy Jones for the artwork slamdunk.

For the longest, I've wanted to start a podcast. Or just talk about shit that I fuck with. Tweeting my thoughts on Hip-Hop, professional wrestling and other bits just doesn't fulfill what I'm trying to do, though. I asked heads what podcasts they fuck with earlier this week, and the boy @illfam79 hit me like "why don't you start a Hip-Hop/Pro Wrestling podcast?"... and I asked myself, why not!? My set-up is ghetto (forgive some of the audio on this), but this is what I came up with. The blackrasslin podcast, which features myself speaking about pro wrestling, from the nigga perspective, and playing tracks as well. Jawns from Tone Liv, Action Bronson, Akrobatik, The Woodside Boys, Elite Assembly and others are thrown in between my musings on the current World Heavyweight Champion, Mark Henry. I actually wanted to do a longer piece for blackrasslin, but this made much more sense. Hopefully we continue this... we'll see. For now, fuck with this and let me know what you think!

Word is he's humble, but he also holds onto a grip of music. Prolly from fucking with McDuck for all this time. Anyways, this is a fresh Fall-flavored instrumental from Synesthesia, brace's forthcoming instrumental album. Some shit to embark on a journey to.

I shouldn't have been, but this was one of the few times I've heard her personality and whatnot. Philly stand up. But yeah, she has a fatty... but she also seems to have her wits about her. From what I heard on Hot 97, this should be chock full of info on her relationship with Wiz Khalifa, as well as her thoughts on people questioning why she's famous, why she won't throw shots at Kanye, and I imagine a grip of hilarity that missed the radio cut.

In any case, this is that flyness that you lapse into when you're living life in your headphones... and swimming in whatever smoke or drink you're used to indulging in. Roc Marciano has a tough flow, and never tries to dumb down or bitch up his bars. Just real shit that you might miss if you're not being perceptive. Love how this MasterKraftsman beat flows, too. Dual sides, but they compliment each other so well. DP says that Roc's about to drop Reloaded in Q4 2011, and might dookie on the globe. If it sounds like this? I'll grab the Charmin.

Sheer Dropz [GDPMU001]

Following up his awesome remix of "This Is Anger" (which is out now), Sheer Dropz flips the instrumental from their version underneath the classic Wu-Tang Clan "C.R.E.A.M." acapella. Fits really well, actually. Raekwon sounds super gutter over that bass drop. Limited to 100 downloads, so grab this one early. Hopefully we'll get more refixes like this!?!?!

Has-Lo - Illegally Yours

No Comments »

What a year Has-Lo has had. Or at least seemed to have. I'm not sure what the buy numbers on his brilliant In Case I Don't Make It album were, but he has gotten a shitload of love from loads of spots, from my peers to my foes. In any case, I know he's working on a grip of music, including Conversation B, which is being touted as a "re-envisioning of In Case I Don't Make It", and he decided, alongside Illegal-Promo, to drop this EP of cuts from the Has-Vault. If In Case I Don't Make It was your first taste of Has-Charm, grab this EP and rock to some unearthed gems. Then get on the radio flyer and ride along with us!
