WOW! All we can say is that THIS is the anthem for all the Summer nights we dreamed about that girl next door! Between this record and the previous record, Paradise, we don't know which one to choose! We'll take them BOTH!

Very great preview of a strong sounding record. Can't wait to hear the project in its entirety.

Video: Jabari x Nigel Sylvester...

If you're asking who Pro BMX rider Nigel Sylvester is then you possibly haven't had your hands on some freestyle handle bars in the past half a decade.

Media maven Jabari sits down with Nigel in an interview where the two discuss the roots that make freestyle BMX'ing strong as well as Nigels humble upbringing.

A Few Words from Jabari:


We have been working so hard on this documentary series over the past few months and I am proud to announce that it is finally here! I know I am known for interviewing musicians and entertainers but I wanted to kick off the first season of Jabari Presents with something a little different.

I went to Queens, NY to speak to pro-bmx biker, Nigel Sylvester, who at just 22 has become an international face for the sport of BMX and is sponsored by companies like Nike, Gatorade, and Animal. Watch as Nigel speaks about how he started, almost quitting, and what he wants to do to take BMX to the next level (he even teaches me how to do a trick!).

I hope you enjoy, thank you for your continued support!

Bonus Lyrics:

yeah uh yeah
these are my one St Thomas flows
me and my niggas and some madonna hoes
that look just like virgins but trust they down to go
discussin’ life and all our common goals
smart kids that smoke weed, honor roll
look how the champagne diamonds flow
fine dining, pour another another glass when the wine is low

I’m in the crib stackin’ money from here to the ceiling
whatever it is I got is clearly appealing
These other rappers gettin’ at it very you feeling
I hope you feel it in your soul spiritual healing
take a look at yourself the mirror’s revealing
if you ain’t got it you ain’t got it the theory is brilliant

People ask how music is goin’ I heard it pays
I just came off makin 2 million in 30 days
damn I guess it does what the message was
sometimes I feel I be spending my money just because
but weezy im just out here repping us
till I get to shake the hand of the man that’s blessing us

yeah, I know these niggas miss the mean lyrics
Kush got the room smelling like teen spirit
I asked kindly if no one out here would bring there feet up
until I lose for now I’m the game’s single leader
I fly private so no one tells me to bring my seat up
and book a suite when me and your favorite singer meet up

who you like, tell me who it is
imma make sure that that woman is the next one on my list
I should call it a night but fuck it i can’t resist
this one is for all my niggas from my city trying to diss
without a response from me you really fail to exist
and I love to see you fail that feeling there is the shit
I swear, ah pussy nigga get your bread up
enjoy the seat that the steward just forced your ass to let up
why your scary ass looking down pick your head up
no one told you your disguise is the most ridiculous getup
with nose plugs in now I can smell a setup
so you’re just wasting your time you’re just only making me better

yeah I try to tell them don’t judge me because you heard stuff
chase N cash that’s my brother from the surf club
damn that nigga always kept it so hood
back when we would smoke good
at the oakwoods
and have girls fall through like coins in a couch
now we just fuckin all the bitches they warned us about
scared for the first time everything has clicked
what if I don’t really do the numbers they predict
considering the fact that I’m the one that they just picked
to write a chapter in history this shit has got me sick
but if I really do it don’t expect to get a split
cause this truly is some shit I don’t expect you all to get

I’m nervous but I’m about to kill it cause they about to let the realist team in
throwing up in a huddle nigga Willie beamin
we’re still throwing touchdown passes
and tore his frame glasses
hopin that someone catch it
people say that old drake we started to miss it
but they need to be a little more specific man is this what y’all want?

and my best chris tucker impression
ducking your questions
fuck your suggestions
money gets all of my love and affection
cars all black like the cover of essence
I’m allergic to comin in second
but I never sneeze
nigga YMOE nigga yeah

uh, yeah, this what y’all want

Video: Ski Beatz Presents: FL!P Th!s...


It seems that apparently Ski Beatz will give two lucky up and coming production specialists the chance to shine to the world by flipping a sample of his choosing.

The show will then hopefully go on to explain in more details the prize, as well as, any other scenarios the minds at the happiest place on earth, DD172 AKA "The Dojo", can come up with.

This is REALLY great idea, considering this may be the very same way a young Kanye West got his first shot at a humble record label so many years ago.

Video: GTDS Presents "Sunday At The Dojo"...

" While out in N.Y. for my mans Hi-Jynx “Doubt” video shoot, I was entered into a Ski Beatz sponsored Beat Battle at the last minute (Shouts to Tony Billz), while I can’t release that footage, I got a dope cosign and put together some quick shots of some of the music (from 24 Hour Karate School) and people at DD172 and The Dojo.

I’ll up Part 2 with the footage from the Hi-Jynx video shoot a little later.

One of our affiliate sites GiveTheDrummaSome.com posts footage of his travels to NYC from CT to compete in a beat battle sponsored by veteran producer Ski Beatz. While he doesnt give away too much (We guess he's saving it for the anticipated Part Two) he does provide some clever editing in the process.

Legends: Rest In Peace Nujabes...

Sad day in Hip-Hop.

As reported here via Shing02:

" Today, I have very somber news for the international hip hop community, especially fans of the independent hip hop scene, and those who have followed my career.

It has been announced that Jun Seba, aka Nujabes, Japanese hip hop producer extraordinaire, passed away late February. Official statement from the label (in Japanese) here:

We deeply regret the loss of a unique talent and a close friend. Through his soulful music, Nujabes has touched so many people around the world, even beyond his dreams. He was a mysterious character to most as he avoided the public limelight, rarely conducted interviews, so only a few got to know the man behind the signature production. Yet it continued to amaze me how young listeners of all backgrounds learned of his enigmatic name, and expressed support for his music.

As I write now from Japan, I had been leaving him messages the past couple of weeks, trying to get in the studio together, so the news could not have come any more unexpected. Even last week, I passed by his house and called him thinking he was still home.

I met Nujabes around 2000 and as an upcoming MC, I was fortunate to work on tracks such as Battlecry, F.I.L.O, Luv(sic) parts 1, 2 and 3. We had been working on the next trilogy of Luv(sic) over the past year (which we're determined to see through). The last time we talked in January, Nujabes emailed me to wish Jeff Resurreccion, a 19-year old beatboxer who had just passed way from cancer, his heartfelt condolences.

While we continue to respect the privacy of his family, we will work to preserve his legacy, and pay tribute to the body of work, some unreleased, that he has left for us to enjoy. Jun Seba will be dearly missed by his family, friends, colleagues, and fans worldwide.

in peace,

We look forward to Mic's future release as we have posted on his past endeavors. The fact that he captures a great, smooth, transitionable essence of the New York Hip-Hop scene has definitely been one of the main reasons for us pushing and playing his records over the past year or so.

The replay ability on this track is impressive in addition to the superb performance that Juelz Santana gives as a guest.

That choice of a title is interesting enough to make us want to listen, to say the least.

Here we happened across a cut from Kalae All Day that gave us that good old feeling of her "turn" in a rap cypher.

We could see it all now, Kalae steps in, spits her piece and gains props from all the fellas in the circle who thought she wasn't going to come and represent for the ladies in the underground hip-hop scene!

..Any cut that can create an instant visual gets a few back to back spins from us.

*Also check out Kalae's interview with FatBoyRadio:

Part 1:

Part 2:

Dope, get to know her a bit. In Part 3 Kalae spits a not so "freestyle" as labeled but showcases her talent as devout rhymesayer nonetheless! Props.

Going through the daily emails we happened across a very htought provoking record from Kil Ripkin. Our knowledge is limited on this artist. With that said that's exactly why this site does what it does. It's to spread the forward entrepreneurial element on discovering new, tasteful sound and talent.

Introducing Kil Ripkin. Backed by Torae as his A&R and numerous posts around the internet, he may or may not be something to keep our eyes on. Let's let this one flourish into something organically.

YC The Cynic definitely caught our eyes, as well as our ears, with this. We've had the chance to see this record performed live and by far the most prolific call and response record of the new emerging New York sound.

Great Job YC, always a pleasure to see your record blasts swinging through our email for features.

YC has a project releasing this month tentatively presented by Chaundon of the Justus Leauge. That's a really big step in the right direction for the young, Bronx New York emcee.

Video: Dollar Van Demos Takes Us Behind The Scenes Of A Dollar Menu...Ride...

Awesome, now we can honestly see how the "Big Corp" is cashing in on the underground artists appeal here.

We have to tip our hats to Dollar Van Demos for the connect hustle but to the artists here...maybe any exposure isn't worth jumping at too quickly. McDonalds has a history of making minorities and "urban areas" typecast in their mannerisms.

Don't get it twisted that African-Americans are still shucking and Jiving for "the man" in regards to cashing in a little change.

We'll think about the aesthetic of this one...

Just a heads up for certain artists, don't compromise your integrity for a check... well, if there IS one.
