RIP JVN: 1993 - Infinity; Configa on the Beat Tribute to John Vietnam
What started out as an entry for a competition I ran last year to win a place on my album (which John Vietnam won pretty unanimously via the panel - see my associated competition video for reference) - quickly became something WAY more, due to JVN's extremely untimely passing, very shortly after. Sadly, we never had time to record the track properly, so his entry, entitled "Need Wisdom", stands alone as one of the tracks (even though it's just one verse) that I'm most proud of in my career. This kid was set to blow, I knew it, and everyone who knew him, or of him, knew it. It's just an honor to have his vocals bless my beat, bearing in mind what happened shortly afterwards. Anyway, he was a great guy, and understood hip-hip as a CULTURE rather than as just some disposable trash. I'm a hip-hop academic, with a PhD, and this skinny teenager could hold his own with me in a debate - amazing! I just wish we had more 19 year old's like him to carry the flame. Rest In Power - John Vietnam. Rapper, Poet, B-Boy, Scholar.

Video Submission: Flyy Guy Fresh - Flyy With Us TV
I'm an independent artist hailing from Harlem, I'm influenced heavily by the music of the 90's and that's what I try to give in my musical approach by making good music but still keeping the art of lyricism present. I'm sending you the latest episode in my webisode series called "Flyy With Us TV" this episode it takes you to me performing live at the Overtime Concert Series present by Major Stage held at the Pyramid Club in New York.
Jackson, MS, emcee, Dojo Seven is intelligent, but he’s by no means an academician. He’s charismatic, but too rebellious for politics. His music expresses the dichotomy of formal educational training and urban (aka “hood”) southern sensibilities. It’s concurrently young in spirit and old and wisdom. Some say he sounds like Big Sean mixed with Mystikal mixed with J. Cole mixed with Wiz Khalifa... Maybe. Check it out and see for yourself.
