So I know we usually only talk to emcees on our phone interviews, but hey its a first time for everything right? For our latest phone interview we spoke to producer maticulous. This one is for the real hip-hop heads who love the tech talk. We got into what gear he uses, the samples he look for, working at Fat Beats, how he linked with Audible Doctor and more. You know the drill...sit back...Relax and Listen!

Lancecape tackles and flips the track "I Got The..." by Labi Siffre, which was most notably sampled by hip-hop heavyweights Jay-Z (Streets Is Watchin'), Eminem (My Name Is) and Def Squad (Full Cooperation). The original track is hard hitting within itself, which in turn made it easy for Lancecape to flip the break, add his signature drums and create one monster of a beat.

'Da' What Is Hip Hop? Series - Sha Stimuli (Editorial)

After taking us from Baltimore to Seattle to Atlanta to North Caroline, 'Da' What is Hip Hop? is returning back to the birth place of hip hop with a new editorial from Brooklyn emcee Sha Stimuli.

From his 2002 mention in the Source Magazine to 12 releases in 2008, Sha has always used his music to inform and speak his mind. He had a stint with Virgin records that was unfortunately complicated through the business side of things. His independence allows him to continue to make lyric packed hip hop and stay true to himself. Like many others that grew up on classic hip hop, Sha Stimuli is not happy with every aspect of today's hip hop scene, especially what can be found in the mainstream. While hip hop originally "educated, entertained, enlightened and frightened [him] all at once", he is no longer "excited about new albums coming out." Check the link above to read what Sha Stimuli has to say about how his love for hip hop has developed and where he stands now! What do you think? Are you happy with where hip hop is at? Leave a comment and lemme know what y’all think.
