Doin' Dilla - A Benefit for the J Dilla Foundation
After the wild success of our first two charity fundraisers, Being BIG and Being Beastie, (we were blessed enough to donate nearly $4500 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of America), we're back to start off the new year with a bit different style. This time, we're honoring one of the most prolific producers in hip hop history - J Dilla - and we hope you can join us once again for what promises to be a great night for a great cause.

We are a hip-hop group from Middlebury College in Vermont. We opened for Wale on April 21st at Kenyon Arena and would really appreciate if you could give a listen to some of our songs and consider featuring us on your blog and/or giving us a review on what we could improve on. Below are download links to 5 of our songs. There are 6 members in the group hailing from various parts of the country (New York, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and New Jersey).
The “Papi Wardrobe Kings” renaissance continues as he commingled with his Wu-Tang comrades on RZA’s “The Man With The Iron Fists” OST on the Wu-Tang Clan reunion track “Six Directions Of Boxing” and with his appearance on the Wu-Tang Clan & D-Block project "Wu-Block,” Wu-Tang Clan's tenth official member, Cappadonna, returns with his own forthcoming double-CD, 'Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre,' which will be released on 2-26-2013 on RBC Records. Cappadonna’s “Eryth, Wynd & Fyre” will feature production from Stu Bangas, J. Glaze & G-Force (among others) and feature guest appearances from Solomon Childs & Sav Kills.
Napoleon Da Legend (@TeamNDL) slings lyrical gems alongside Brownsville legend Sean P for "Wise Men" produced by DUS. This is the first single off his upcoming full length album "Awakening", featuring the likes of Raekwon and Spit Gemz.
3913 a Hip Hop group from Baltimore, MD and we have some submissions that we are looking to get posted. First off, we are very serious and dedicated to our craft and we love what we do. Our style doesn't get much interested because it is not the norm for todays culture and sound. That's what we love about it. Here I have for you a video that we just released on the 1st titled Get The Money.
The album provides a good variety of hip-hop sounds and styles ranging from the gutsy intensity of TeckZilla's compositions and the smoothness of Swarthy Soul (UK) to the bouncy and engaging beats of Rapsom and Black Intelligence. Also featured are productions from Dead Serious from Switzerland, Kammokane, Es-K, and Alfred Greem. It also abounds with amazing storytelling and magnificent rhyme saying by reverberant eMCees and rappers who paint lucid pictures and show off amazingly structured craftsmanship. The Underground Railroad Network album is put out as part of the international hip-hop movement.
