My good friends over at Truth Studios, a boutique recording studio located in Hollywood, are doing something really special. A lot of exciting things will be exploding from there. In the meantime, let’s just enjoy an exclusive video of producer Chuck Inglish talking about making the beat for Rick Ross’ “Party Heart” in the lab. The […]

Los Angeles based artists rapper/singer Young De (aka Demrick) and producer/rapper Scoop DeVille teamed up and put out a bumpin’ EP last year called “Neva LOOK Back.”  They did a remix to one of the tracks “What’s Good!?” featuring Cliqou Nico and the talented Brevi. An oldie but a goodie, you can catch the music video […]

One of my favorite rappers of all time.  Like Tyler, the Creator, I’d have to say that my favorite Nas album would have to be “God’s Son.”  Illmatic, yadda, yadda.  Not taking anything away from that album but “God’s Son” had so much heart and significance from him that I felt like I was really […]

Black Star (Yasiin Bey, formly known as Mos Def + Talib Kweli) stopped by The Colbert Report last week to perform two tracks – Fix Up (unreleased) and Astronomy (8th Light) – and to talk briefly with the comedic host.  Colbert was hilarious and had great synergy with the hip-hop duo.  They discussed “underground” hip-hop […]

*Updated at 12:50pm A few days ago, I received an email that contained exciting music for my ears to be blessed with.  Timeless Remixes off the Timeless EP from Mochilla. While all of the tracks are wonderful, my fave are #2 and #4. I’m not going to try to paraphrase the description of this project.  My […]

The homie @jameskoo introduced me to 21-year-old Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, who currently resides in the beautiful city of Los Angeles, and her Ignorant Art mixtape, which dropped yesterday for free download.  He said something about “No Kreayshawn.  No Nicky.”  I usually (lol) trust his music recommendations so I gave her a shot and I have […]
