The first official release form Biz' brilliant Black Friday 2.
TheCombatJackShow: "The Combat Jack show once again occupied the Hot 97 portal to break bread with our friend Ebro Darden of Hot 97 fame. You know every once and a while we gotta sit down with the head honcho to have “that” conversation. We talked NYC hip hop, the state of radio, his ever growing personality and more. Want to know if Hot 97 can be the home of The Combat Jack Show? Put down that daddy yak, grab some D’usse listen to this hardbody episode."
Hopefully you're tuning into Side-B Radio with the homey Phil Jackson WPRB Sunday nights, 5PM to 7PM. Phil puts on for Jersey, and the hip-hop world in general, and I respect the hell out of the work he puts in. It's not often that I get interviewed, but when he hit me up to come on the show and speak about what I do, I had to talk with him. It's not crazy long, but I got to speak about RTD and a few things we have going on, what's GONE on, and some of the stuff I've been doing with Complex. Big up to Phil always, and I'm hoping that 2014 can see us put some of these wheels into motion.
And for those paying attention, here's the promo for Black Friday 2:
Black Friday, the prelude to his intense Forever Black project. This year, on Black Friday, we're doing it again. Black Friday #2 will feature a grip of tracks from Biz, many of which I've not even heard before, and on Black Friday 2013 (November 29, 2013), there will be a tour fundraiser / release party that will feature live performances, the premiere of the "One Love" video, an art auction, body painting, a sneak peak at HGA, a photo booth, and more! #10 minimum contribution gets you in the door (and a copy of Black Friday); $15 gets you both mixtapes, and a $30 contribution gets you both mixtapes and an HGA t-shirt. This all goes down at 3 S. Broad Street in Trenton. You already know. Full details over on Facebook.
Skumbag Millionaires. Seriously, there's a picture to prove that this finally exists. See, if you know Skrew, you know that he's everywhere. Dude's got a great balance of being fun-loving and cracking jokes, but when that crispy instrumental drops, he turns into an animal. Put a mic in his hand and its a wrap. Those two sides mean that he makes a lot of friends and acquaintances, and on Skumbag Millionaires, Skrew made sure that his hip-hop opus featured a sick line-up of some of Jersey's finest spitters and producers. That said, it makes sense that it's been roughly two years since the time I first heard about this project and when it literally hit my hands.
