GlobalMusic4 Life Uses Rap Music to Provide Health Care

From D Nati:

GlobalMusic4 Life Uses Rap Music to Provide Health Care

This groundbreaking music company is using hip hop music to relay the importance of healthy living. The company was founded by Dr. Kiki Hurt. She has invested over $100,000 of her own money in producing fifteen tracks that have club banging beats with a subliminal wellness message.

To do this, Dr. Hurt has recruited producers like Alex Toval (Atlantic), musicians like violinist Svet Radoslavof (Lady Gaga) and celebrity artists like Marcus T. Paulk (Moesha) and Hazel-E. GlobalMusic4 Life has also been featured in several media outlets including ABC News.

Trackstar the DJ: Into the Wild Tour/Mixtape

Trackstar the DJ: Into the Wild Tour/Mixtape

Sending this e-mail from just outside of Dallas, two dates under our belt on the Into the Wild Tour with El-P, Killer Mike, Mr. MFn eXquire and Despot. 22 cities to go...dates and venues are below. Follow me on twitter (@djtrackstar), Instagram (@trackstarthedj) and Facebook to keep up with our international rap adventures. 

To help promote the tour, Karmaloop enlisted me to put together a mixtape of the four artists and it came out pretty damn dope. Stream here. Download here.

Remaining tour dates:

  • Th6/21 – Dallas, TX (Granada)
  • Fr6/22 – Houston, TX (Warehouse Live)
  • Mo6/25 – Phoenix, AZ (Crescent)
  • Tu6/26 – San Diego, CA (Casbah)

Before the tour began, last weekend Mike and I did two shows in Toronto as part of the NXNE Festival, including opening up for Raekwon and Ghostface in front of nearly 10,000 in Yonge-Dundas Square...if you know me you know how I feel about the Wu-Tang Clan (and Mike feels the same way) so you know this was an amazing experience for Gabe the Rap Fan.

As for the first two shows of the actual tour...New Orleans was crazy last night (Curren$y stopped by) but the first show in Atlanta was insane. Mike brought out Big Boi and a few other Dungeon Family cohorts for Kryptonite and a few more jams...it was most definitely an honor to share the stage with half of the greatest hip hop group of all time. 

Speaking of Big Boi, in case you missed it:

MP3: billy woods - "DMCA (Blockhead Remix)"

From Audible Treats:

MP3: billy woods - "DMCA (Blockhead Remix)"

It's been only a few short months since billy woods released his dense, mission-statement of an album, History Will Absolve Me, and already the Washington, DC-born, NYC-based lyricist is back in the studio working on new music. This time around, however, he's working with long-time Aesop Rock-producer Blockhead, and the two are currently deep into a collaborative album scheduled for release later this year. Today, Backwoodz Studioz is excited to release a remix for the the History Will Absolve Me standout "DMCA."

Although "DMCA" became a fast favorite from History Will Absolve Me, to hear billy woods tell it, the track almost didn't even make the album. "DMCA is one of those songs that I really loved but didn't expect to get the kind of love that it got," explains billy, noting that while he wasn't originally planning a remix for the track, it turns out that other artists, especially, have been drawn to the song. "I think I managed to sum up stuff that a lot of artists are dealing with right now."

While the original track, produced by Willie Green, is one of the more "boom-bap" tracks on the album, Blockhead's remix offers a darker take on the song, an ethereal swirl of bouncy congas, winding guitar riffs, and brooding synths. "Once Blockhead and I connected, I was bugging him about a remix," explains billy, recalling how the remix came to be. "We got sidetracked on the new music we're working on, but I'm glad we got this out there - not only is it a new take on 'DMCA' but it's also a little taste of the project that Blockhead and I have coming."

Film School With R.A. The Rugged Man

From Nature Sounds:

Film School With R.A. The Rugged Man

Class is now in session with Film School With R.A. The Rugged Man, a must-see new web series from MTV's Film.com hosted by rapper/film historian R.A. The Rugged Man.  "I've wrote and produced full length features, was a film columnist for Mass Appeal Magazine for 5 years, and wrote movie articles for Vibe, The Source, Complex and others," says the Rugged Man. "Basically I'm just a total geek when it comes to cinema." Shot at R.A.'s apartment, where DVDs line the walls from floor to ceiling, Film School takes you into the vaults of classic Hollywood, as R.A. waxes poetic on everything from campy horror to film noir to Blaxploitation cinema and beyond. You may not get a degree here, but you will get schooled. "I'll be dropping cinematic jewels on people every two weeks," explains R.A.  "The first episode is just an introduction but we're about to get crazy with it." Check out the first episode at the link below.
