Mr. Green Runs a Subaru Forester Through the Beat Machine with Slaughter Rico
Courtesy Green Hip Hop.
"This episode was recorded entirely at the East Coast Gas Station in North Philadelphia. First we met up with Philly legend Slaughter Rico (look up "5 Dolla Nigga") and started grabbing sounds from the car. We got stuff from the trunk, the glove box, the keys, the horn, the ignition beep and a couple random other things from around the station. Then I loaded the sounds in the beat machine and chopped them up. Finally, Slaughter Rico dropped a crazy verse over the beat."
Mr. Green and crew inviting people to make their own beats from the car sounds. Download the sounds from this link:
They say it’s different across the bridge, and there is something definitely different about GQ. In the words of 9th Wonder, simply put, “he’s a star”. GQ, who Grammy Award winning producer, 9th Wonder, coins his “secret weapon” is not only a former NCAA basketball champion, but in fact Oakland’s next Hip Hop hero.
Just want to start by saying thanks so much for your support on my Album "Four Left Turns" a couple months ago! I just released the Official Video for one of the songs on that album, entitled "Roll of the Dice"… I'd love your continued support if you like what you see!

It’s been a long time coming, but Ft. Lauderdale emcee Trav Williams is ready to make a comeback. First heard in 2008 with his debut project, The Trickle Down, Trav became a fav here at KN… so much, in fact, that we invited him to record to our Illmatic remix project and dub it IllTravis in 2009. Four years and a few mixtapes later, Trav Williams is gearing up to drop P.O.E. (Preponderance of the Evidence). Similar to IllTravis, P.O.E. is a flip on a classic 90s album — Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt.
