Crown Royale (DJ Rhettmatic & Buff1) was Hip-Hop Official's Artist Of The Week this past week. They did a few jams live in the studio and this is one of them that made it onto the web. Check out the video, turn up the volume and like Buff say, "Get It Up!"
You guys remember the Flow & Tell Tour?!?! I used to bump that CD everyday and listen to both Awol and 2Mex kill it. If you live around Long Beach, relive that incredible piece of hip-hop music and check it out live.
RIP Michael Jackson aka King Of Pop aka The G.O.A.T.
LMNO heading down south to San Diego, CA to prove that real hip-hop is alive and well. With a new album on the brink of releasing and a new single buzzing like crazy overseas, I don't think we've seen LMNO at his best yet...it's coming though.
Rebecca Joelson has taken some beautiful pictures. Amongst others, artists like LMNO, Aceyalone and Zach de la Rocha & Jon Theodore's group One Day As A Lion have been the focus of her work, which are all amazing. Come out and support her art by attending her show going on now. Opening reception is this Saturday, June 27th!
In honor of our brother Sleep coming out with a new album, "Hesitation Wounds" on June 30th, we decided to put up his debut album, Christopher up for sale for a limited time only!
Besides the low low price on his album, you'll get the low low price on both his 12" singles Say Goodbyeand Testimony. And if that isn't enough, we'll be hooking you up with free shipping, anywhere in the continental US.
So don't sleep on Sleep - this sale will only go on until his album is released on June 30th!
Is it just me or does Kev Brown continuously come out with brand new heat topping his previous work? All his shit is classic, but this leak off his upcoming Random Joints (should be out in the Fall?) is another one of those head nodding, golden-era jams that you can cruise to.
2Mex performing at what looks like will be a great night for hip-hop. The Beatnuts, Large Pro, Evidence, Planet Asia, Trek Life and 2Mex?!?!? Need I say more? For all of those feeling the recession, I suggest getting those pre-sale tickets because this is going to be a night to remember.
And if that's not your cup of tea, come out and chill at the Downtown Independent Theatre to check out The Last American Virgin / DJ sets by Life Rexall and Deeskee.
Our good homie DJ Norm Rocwell has put together a dope little sampler from his upcoming mixtape Escape(ism). On first listen, I was digging it. But then Norm sent me the entire mix and I was blown away - song selection, mix, and arrangement were on point. As he put it on his blog, Escape(ism) is an "aural journey into nujazz, upbeat soul, afrolatin vibes, and good ol' hip hop."
2Mex continues his killing spree in Los Angeles performing at Vive La Lucha Arts and Cultural Festival, a revolutionary collaboration of live Mexican style wrestling (Lucha Libre), music entertainment, and art exhibitions from numerous Latino artists. A diverse musical line-up, delicious food, art exhibition, topped by the very best of Mexican style wrestling make for the perfect day of entertainment.
Here's a live mix from DJ Rhettmatic from his set at The Do-Over this past weekend, June 7, 2009. If you know Rhett, you know he's one of the most talented and accomplished DJ's in the game and he's still breaking new ground. You check out his new work with Eric Bobo or his Crown Royale project with emcee Buff1?!?!? Anyway, check out this mix - it'll put a smile on your face and have you dancing in your office, home, car or wherever you listen to good music.
2Mex is always on the grind performing at every venue, whether it be at a hole in the wall or the biggest stage in Southern California. Tonight, he'll be at the The Beauty Bar in San Diego doing some of his latest and greatest from all his crews. Don't miss out!
