[RTD Interview]: Milly Esquire

Read more » | No Comments »

In our effort to highlight niggas on the come up, I present a recent discussion with Milly Esquire. Currently reppin' Baltimore, Milly's formerly known as Mark Milly, and currently not giving a fuck about you if you aren't about getting bread and progressing. He's got a dope style about him, and is all about that constant hustle, and his Mind Over Matter project will be touching down in 2012. Here we find him breaking down how he got to now, what he does when he's not rapping his ass off, and some glimpses into one of the most dedicated out there doing it.

SoulBrotha "Hearbreache II (The Beginning)"

Here's another cut from SoulBrotha, produced by BroadNMarket, but this one did NOT appear on Southpaw. Nice familiar sample source, with SB pulling no punches and breaking down a vivid situation with his lyrics. Peep Part 1 then rock to this one.

DJ Andy Smith - Portishead & Massive Attack "Sampled" Mix (12/03/2011)

No Comments »

Shouts to GRANDGOOD for the heads up, by way of Andy Smith: "As part of the 'Sampled night' at Bar Music Hall in London on 3/12/11 (a night of original samples next to tracks that sampled them) I decided to do a short set of Portishead samples and tracks and then decided to do the same with early Massive Attack (& Wild Bunch) samples and tunes as well. It carries on into 80's Hip Hop samples and tracks after this that I might put up one day. It was 9.00 clock in the evening (somebody from the bar even told me to turn it down at one point as people were eating - That's appreciation for you!!!)"

The Two. Fifteens - Stripes

Read more » | No Comments »

It's wild to think that fully-realized albums like this would be dropping for free. Consider this an early Christmas gift. The Two. Fifteens have entrusted RTD to premiere their new album, Stripes, which showcases the next chapter in their evolution. They are already dedicated to massacring whatever speakerbox you choose to put into your whips, but they show off more of their atmospheric side, not just relying on fat bass and big drums to get their point across. I've been championing their music for a bit, and this is the most aware I've heard them. Almost like their other releases have been demos, and this is the full realization of where they are going. A number of these cuts have gotten love from DJs like Starkey and Nappy, and feel like some proper Electronic music for the snow season. Literally. Synths like snowflakes, bass making the earth quake. Some really forward-thinking music here, but you already know what the fuck time it is, right? 2012 should be the truth for these two, trust. For right now, though, soak-up this 11-track opus. Big up Darkie for the artwork.

The Combat Jack Show ft. Dallas Penn (12/14/2011)

No Comments »

Last night's show? Talk about that real shit. The crew was in prime form, but with attorney Kenneth Montgomery as special guest? This was some legal eagle shit for you. Jack is already a lawyer, but this was some shit to keep your punk ass out of jail. Or help you make sure your family doesn't get railroaded. Plus the usual banter and dope Hip-Hop. What other show is fucking with this one?

Introducing ooShirts

No Comments »

I get hit up every now and again for all kinds of things, and my interest piques whenever someone hits me up about T-Shirts. When I'm not at work, I'm living life in T-Shirts, so finding proper abdomen representation is a must. With the number of "customize your own t-shirt" spots on the web, I have to introduce you to ooShirts.com, an upstart company out of Berkeley, California. Talk about ease of use - you can upload a picture or image (preferably something that's not going to get you sued) to their site and peruse through the multitude of shirt types with EASE! They've got unisex shirts, shirts specifically for women and hoodies as well. You can also pick from a number of different types of shirt (for example, the RTD logo shirt I made came on a crispy, tagless Hanes white tee). Reasonable rates, too, depending obviously on size, quality of shirt and how much you're putting on it. Quick shipping, too. Just an all-around great source for your custom t-shirt needs. I'd recommend this spot for other bloggers/websites, or even people who need some exclusive pieces for whatever they're doing. Highly recommended. They even have people who review your orders and, if any changes/suggestions are made (to help your shirt look iller), they send you an email with their specs. Not just some ol' "upload pics and we haphazardly throw the image on there". Feels like they really care about what I'm trying to wear. Love that.

#BlackFriday: Black Collar Biz "Thank Me Later"

No Comments »

The video for this one dropped earlier this week, so we had to drop the MP3 for the next #BlackFriday installment. Black Collar Biz has the knack for rapping like he's talking. Real confident, real intelligent, but still fly. And putting Trenton on his back. Most young cats try to rep their city, but this is a nigga who's doing it. And doing it well. Forever Black is on the way!

You might not fuck with professional wrestling like I do, but I'm loving this podcast right here. One of the highlights here is me booking the forthcoming WWE Network, which is set to drop on the first of April (the same day as WrestleMania 28). I also went in on this week's episode of RAW, and play some fly tracks from the likes of Tyler, the Creator, R.O.E., Strong Arm Steady and plenty more. Fuck withya boy.

Whoa. New leak from J57's 2057 EP, and he called in BBAS-fam Koncept to spit over this ill track. Love the use of the vocal in the sample. Kind of eerie, but all funky. Brown Bag to the death. But I'm guessing that death's either liver failure or "death by being too dope".

If you've got somewhere to go, right now, and it involves driving in a city, you might want to burn this to a CD like 10 times and just ride to it. Has that "street lights flying fast" flavor to it. But you have to be sippin on some cognac while driving. No word on WHAT Ess Vee has dropping in 2012, but this cut is helping him gear up for it. Smooth, clean nigga shit.

If you missed this (like I did) when it first came out, here's the re-release, with five additional tracks. Dom O Briggs is a chill nigga that I think needs to get in that spotlight. Hopefully 2012 will allow him to spread his wings and enter more people's iTunes. Or you niggas will continue to sleep because he has glasses, or whatever reason you fuckers sleep on dope music. Thank me later. And be on the lookout for his Always Inspire(d) EP, which is due to drop this Winter.

For anyone hating on the Combat Jack show featuring Dallas Penn, or thinking it's not worthy, do me a favor and kill your whole self. Figuratively and literally. I don't know too many radio shows that balance the funny along with the real like this one does. Solid show this week, with L.E.P. Bogus Boys and Hot 97's own Peter Rosenberg jumping into the hotseat. Usual quality from all, including DJ Benhameen. Or you could continue to play yourself.
