Thanks again for anybody that shared my "Sunday Brunch" project last week. Today I have a track that we debuted over at BDTB from a couple midwest homies. They stopped by my place in Indianapolis last weekend for a small listening session, and they're unleashing this track today for everyone to get familiar with. Dominique Larue (Columbus, OH) and Maja 7th (Chicago/Indiana/DC) have officially announced a collaborative project entitled "GRAND". No release date set as of yet but it will be #SOON.

PR: DJ Premier Featured in Cipha Sounds' Hip Hop Improv
On Friday, April 26, 2013, The legendary DJ Premier was featured in the Hip Hop Improv Show - Take it Personal presented by Hot 97's Cipha Sounds and Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), the top improv theatre and school in NYC. Improvisers Cipha Sounds, Abra Tabak, Anthony Atamanuik, Chris Gethard, Phil Jackson, and Brandon Gardner reenacted stories originally told by DJ Premier.
Cipha Sounds quickly noticed the similarities between improv and hip hop. Both have been around for many years and have never combined forces, but that will soon change through Take it Personal. Cipha Sounds' passion for improv grew as he began to master the art form. He set forth on a path to create a brand new type of show where stories would be told from Hip Hop's notables. "Hip hop and improv are similar because they are both spontaneous, spur of the moment, from the gut, freestyled, and very entertaining. Both have cult like followings and fanatic fans," said Cipha Sounds.
Ebro (Hot 97), Omar the Commedian, Dominican Drew (Hot 97), Themar Dumay (MissLynShue.com), Keithe Nelson (AllHipHop.com), and Willy Dope of Par-City stopped by to show their support.

My name is Patrick Crawley AKA Backspacez and I'm a hip hop producer from Long Island. Me and my friend Toker P just released this track called "Shady". I made the beat and he rapped. Our group name is Tokers In Space. I would describe our style as experimental boom bap. I use lots of different samples from different genres, for example the sample from this track is from a Spanish music group.
