This David E Beat is sick…I respect dudes hustle a lot! This is that fight music…First you fight, and then you fall, and then you get up, and then you ball! Real Shit bro! Thanks for sharing this Olivia!
I love the content of Tree’s music. Plus his expression is always fresh, you know, something I’ve never heard before. I really appreciate his music. This my friends, is for the Warriors!
A song made using lots of gameboys, eggs, toasters, scissors, and a series of other bizarre instruments and synthesizers. This is another track off my “Splitting Branches” Album coming soon. The cover art was made directly for the song in result of a collaboration by two of tree’s visual artists; Zane Prater & Drew Grasso.
The originality of this joint it dope. BTW…The Farmer’s Market of the Beast is TIGHT!!!!
LA emcee Radioinactive was part of Log Cabin, the ’90s crew that included a young Murs and Eligh. Rolling Stone and URB co-signed him soon after he rapped as a goat on “Farmer’s Market Of The Beast” from producer Omid’s 1998 compilation Beneath The Surface, also featuring Dilated Peoples and Freestyle Fellowship. He dropped the solo albums Pyramidi, Free Kamal and Soundtrack To A Book. He collaborated with his crew Shape Shifters on Shape Shifters Was Here, and Daedelus and Busdriver on The Weather. Now, fresh back from three months traveling the Sahara Desert with a band of Tuaregs, he dons one of Quincy Jones’ old suits in the Tucker Capps-directed music video for “Mint Tea”, the first single from his forthcoming album The Akashic Record. French duo La Caution produced “Tea”, originally heard as “The A La Menthe” on the soundtrack to the 2004 movie Oceans 12 starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts. “Tea” also features 2Mex, the LA emcee known for his work with The Visionaries, Project Blowed, Sage Francis, Slug of Atmosphere and many more. The “Mint Tea” single drops April 9.
This is dark and amazing, I really like the feel of this record…read below.
Forging a mix of menacing mood and moving melody out of their adopted city of Berlin, Germany, RTR are Canadian singer-songwriter brother duo Benedikt and Tobias MacIsaac. An internationally accomplished choreographer and dancer respectively, the brothers are no strangers to performing-arts success, having toured and performed extensively with world class troupes in Europe.
Rooftop Runners’ new 4 song EP “We Are Here” will be released April 3, 2012, and it’s meant as both an affirmation and a promise that “RTR has arrived and they are here to stay.”
Check out the remix too. ITS ADDICTIVE AS HELL!!!!!!!!!! I’ve been playing it all day!
I love this video.
The new single comes announced with a video for “Atlas” directed and produced by Beth’s friend Juan Iglesias in Los Angeles, where the singer has spent much of the year. The brilliant, black-and-white video stars actress Brenda King (and a rabbit) in a clip that’s part stop-motion animation, part film noir and part Benny Hill chase sequence. “It’s special to me because of the locations used and the people involved are all friends,” says Beth.

Welcome to the 1st installment of Throwback Thursday. Every 1st and last Thursday of the month I’ll educate you guys on a genre very near to my heart…hip hop. So everyone knows Biggie and Tupac, but what about the founding fathers? Who paved the way for Biggie and Tupac? Who made them want to rap?
This Thursday I’ll bring you guys the amazing story of Whodini…
Whodini was a hip hop group that was formed in 1981. The Brooklyn, New York-based trio consisted of vocalist and main lyricist Jalil Hutchins; co-vocalist John Fletcher, aka Ecstasy (who wore a Zorro-style hat as his trademark); and turntable artist DJ Drew Carter, aka Grandmaster Dee. Watch the documentary below. You know more about them than you think….

Logan emailed this to me and said it was a must read. It is. It fits in perfectly with my last post on MC Lyte. Its funny, the older I get, the more I find myself listening to a LOT of hip hop for only the beats. There’s almost no point to listen for lyrical content. But rap used to be about something. What happened? Well, rappers stopped acting their age…TRUTH Minista Paul Scott breaks it down. He’s a genius.
“…Just look at the complexity of Busta Rhyme’s lyrics 20 years ago when he was with the Leaders of the New School (LONS) as compared to his recent work, proving that you can have a sick, supersonic, 60-bars-a-second flow and still say absolutely nothing of substance. If you you don’t believe me, just go back and listen to his verse on the LONS’s joint, “Understanding The Inner Minds Eye (TIME)”, where he spits, “It’s kinda ill when you don’t know what time/ Or whose time you are living in,” and compare it with his song with Lil Twist. I rest my case…”
