T.C. feat. EASTWOOD - I'M A LIVING LEGEND (NEW MUSIC VIDEO)

0 comments

I'm not familiar with T.C. at all but I've always had love for Eastwood from the day I met him back in 2003. A good dude who's never seemed to catch the right break so when I do see things with him on it I push it to ya'll. I know there are some Eastwood fans out there so at least you can keep up with him a bit.

9TH WONDER'S "DE BLOG JAM"

SoundOff TV Presents 9th Wonder's "De Blog Jam" from LowKey on Vimeo.


You may remember a small series that featured 9th Wonder and was posted on BET.com's blog but were probably wondering what happened since the subsequent episodes never came. Well there were some small obstacles and it looks to be back. The east coast homie LowKey is responsible for this dope idea and my family works with 9th Wonder so it's getting the love over here. I'll let LowKey explain what happened and what's next:

9th Wonder Is Back! Ok so I wanted to do this dope feature on SoundOff called “Studio Rats” which would include hand selected artists, radio personalities, DJ’s and producers in their elements grinding out whatever it is they do in a studio setting. However, StudioRats.Com already has the rights to the name so I’m forced to go back to the drawing board.

Furthermore, 9th and his folks already titled these videos “De Blog Jam” so it wouldn’t make sense for me to alter what he’s already started. But have no fear because it’s a win-win situation. In the coming weeks the “My Sessions” franchise will begin and 9th’s, “De Blog Jam” will continue to live exclusively on these walls. And MAKE sure you check for the next episode because David Banner will be making a DOPE cameo. – LowKey

Though the brand is San Francisco based I rolls with Mega and I like his line so whenever he puts out some new stuff it's getting love over here. Mega and Black Scale are also very supportive of the LA hip hop scene as they've showed love to Pac Div, Diz Gibran, Bleu Collar and more. This Look Book showcases new tees, caps, hoodie and the varsity jackets. As always you can go to the site and start ordering yours.

EAZEE LIVING: VENICE STUDIO by RICHARD ALDRIEDGE

0 comments



I had these pics sent to me by someone who checks out my blog and enjoys it. His name is Richard Aldriedge and I wanted to highlight something he did. This studio is located in the Venice area and as Richard told me "My intention, by having the doors overlooking the alley, was to make this usually ignored street space more interesting". The layout is very innovative and in some regards seems almost surreal. If you have more questions about the place contact Richard here.

STATIK SELEKTAH f. JOE SCUDDA, TRUCK NORTH & DIZ GIBRAN - JADED (NEW MUSIC DOWNLOAD)

0 comments
Had to post this single for Statik Selektah's Pre-Game EP because as you can see LA's own Diz Gibran is on the track, and does he do damage over it. So download it now and support the EP when it drops because LA is well represented here. The track also features Joe Scudda & Truck North which I'm sure a number of you are familiar with.


CHRIS BROWN - TRANSFORM YA f. LIL WAYNE & SWIZZ BEATZ (NEW MUSIC DOWNLOAD)

He made a mistake, he's technically a child considering his line of work and if we can forgive R. Kelly for urinating on a little girl and touching minors long enough to Step in the Name of Love, we can forgive Chris and hope he learns from his mistake. In that regard, I support Chris Brown and I'll drop any of his leaked records here. So enjoy...oh and I hear the video is going to be dope. It was filmed not too far from the neighborhood. The new track features Swizz Beatz (he on the beat too) and Weezy F.


KPLTV REC ROOM w/ MYKA 9 of FREESTYLE FELLOWSHIP

KPLTV Rec Room with Myka 9 from KPL TV on Vimeo.

My folks over at KPL TV come through with another episode from the Rec Room, this time with Freestyle Fellowship emcee Myka 9. Check the description below.

This session was the most intense of all of our tapings at DJ Kiilu Grand's studio last year, because Myka 9 is a certified BEAST. He's been your favorite rapper's favorite rapper since the late 80's. No matter what coast. No matter what planet. Myka 9 is one of the best MC's to ever touch a microphone. The chemistry between DJ Kiilu and Myka 9 is also something to marvel. Regardless where the beat goes, these two are forever on point. I guess this what you get when you bring two-fifths of FREESTYLE FELLOWSHIP together - HIP HOP in its purest form. Here Myka 9 performs his verse off of the single "Mike, Aaron & Eddie" from the Haiku D'Etat album, Coup de Theatre.
