Video: Mr. Green - "Live From the Streets" Episode 1
Courtesy Mr. Green.
"This is the first episode of the show Sam Lipman-Stern and I have been working on. Basically, we've been hitting the streets and searching for people to film playing music. Then we've been taking the footage back to the studio and making beats out of it. We've already made some truly special videos /music and we haven't even left Philadelphia. Ultimately, the goal is to travel the globe searching for people and sounds to make beats out of… all the while documenting the process on video."
One-Half Of A.Dd+, Slim Gravy Goes For Dolo On This Latest Non-Album Track
With their debut album, When Pigs Fly, still drawing accolades, Dallas duo A.Dd+ continues to stay busy - and that busyness continues to provide an onslaught of quality music for all. No different here, even as Paris Pershun sits this one out, with Slim Gravy going at it alone with the brand new, non-album cut "Can't Come Down."
The song, based on a true story ("Shout out to Aegis Communications," says Slim), tells the tale of young man battling his need for employment with his love for weed. "Let me be straight up: I need a job, homie/ A nine-to-five, homie/ I ain't even got five on it," begins Slim, deciding to indulge in a little "Captain Kush for breakfast" before heading out on his way.
The washed out, hazy beat plays off Slim's behind-the-beat drawl perfectly, and, to hear Slim tell it, the pairing of beat and concept was a match right from jump. "My homie Brain Gang X'Zavier produced the track," explains the A.Dd+ rapper. "He needed a good weed-smoking story to go along with the beat, so I immediately thought of my last job experience."
Having finally earned gainful employment, the song's second verse places Slim in training, fighting boredom, and "wondering when the first break is/ 'Cause I swear that I'm blazing." With a blunt pre-rolled and ready to spark, Slim realizes, albeit too late, that he's been caught on the company's security cameras. "Don't smoke weed before or during work," quips Slim Gravy. "'Cause you might get fired."
After releasing two stellar projects off the Raw Koncept imprint, "You Need This Music" and "Rawth EP", Nottz is back in the lab hard at work, this time cooking up new material with his group D.M.P. (Durte Muzik Prahdukshun). The group is assembled of Virginia-based emcees Bigshot Manceeni, Cutlass Reid, Khizman, Starboy, Ivory Keyes, Boogie and Nottz himself. Here is the group's first effort, "Ball Game", which features the group in its entirety and Nottz turning in yet another stellar beat.
The first official video from the Virginia outfit, “Ball Game” displays the group taking control of there own turf (with revenge) and re-making the1979 classic movie "The Warrior."
Here is the latest single release from Breakin' All Records. Download this new AWESOME track by Lamontiz aka Kid Crab and share it with your dj friends and family so we can get this circulating IMMEDIATELY!
PR: Big Pooh Announces Dirty Pretty Things For November 1 Release
Courtesy Audible Treats.
(September 2011 – Brooklyn, NY) Rapper Big Pooh is excited to announce the upcoming release of his new album, Dirty Pretty Things. Serving as the second official solo album from the now-solo emcee, Dirty Pretty Things will be released November 1st via Big Pooh's newly formed label, For Members Only.
In 2005, Big Pooh first stepped outside of the Little Brother umbrella, releasing his debut solo album, Sleepers. Since then, the fan favorite group released a handful of highly regarded albums before finally disbanding last year, and so, as Big Pooh sat down to begin crafting Dirty Pretty Things, with his career as part of Little Brother was coming to a close, he found inspiration in a movie that he felt mirrored his own journey through music. "I always thought Dirty Pretty Things was a really dope movie," remarks Pooh. "But it was overlooked for whatever reasons, the same way I've been overlooked as a solo artist."
It makes sense, then, that an album intent on proving, once and for all, that Pooh can stand alone as a solo artist would also serve as some of the rapper's most personal work to date. "This album is me; it allowed me to give listeners a piece of my soul and reveal a lot of what I've been dealing with over the past couple years," explains Pooh. "Dirty Pretty Things is about looking past outside appearance and finding out what's really going on inside. It's about the truth."
Joining Pooh for Dirty Pretty Things is an impressive cast of producers and rappers, but more than that, they're artists that Pooh felt best complemented his own vision. "I decided who to work with based on feel," explains Pooh, who enlisted the production efforts of Nottz, DJ Khalil, Focus... , and more, while Torae, Joe Scudda, Carlitta Durand, Darien Brockington, and others lent vocals. "I'm not into forcing music," notes Pooh. "Everyone was chosen based on how I felt they would fit the puzzle I put together."
One of those puzzle pieces was Family Biz, Ent., who lent their touch to "Medicine Man," released as the first song and video from the album. Joining that track are a handful of other personal favorites of Pooh. "Free," for example, is a track about learning how to be comfortable in your own skin. "Are You Ready," featuring Torae and produced by Nottz, is another standout, as is "Real Love," produced by Focus.... "'Real Love' is about the current relationship I have with my brother," explains Pooh, and the song is just another example of how Pooh's most personal work has translated into his strongest. "All of the personal and professional anguish led up to this moment," says Pooh. "Dirty Pretty Things marks my progression as a man, my progression as a businessman, and, most of all, my progression as an artist."

ROUGH DEMO HOME RECORDING:
Agape Love, I'm Fallen Apart, Wait on God, I'm GIFTED, and Writer of My Soul are all from someone else's instrumental but the artist had a one night stand with them each, she rocked out with the lyrics and the rhythm. But the artist started her first project with her producer Darrell Kelly in Panama City, FL for her songs: Agape Love, Overflow, Divine Favor, Sound of Praise, More, and Do you Know are all hers. She wrote all the material and sings everything.
My music has a cross-over, unique, inspiring, bold, unusual sound that's what sells and I sing Gospel/Christian Contemporary R&B, RAP, Praise&Worship, SOUL, HIPHOP, etc.
Common has earned a reputation in the hip hop world as a conscious artist by embracing themes of love and struggle in his songs, and by sharing his own search for knowledge with his listeners. His journey toward understanding—expressed in his music and now in his roles in film and television—is rooted in his relationship with a remarkable woman, his mother, Mahalia Ann Hines.
In One Day It'll All Make Sense, Common holds nothing back. He tells what it was like for a boy with big dreams growing up on the South Side of Chicago. He reveals how he almost quit rapping after his first album, Can I Borrow a Dollar?, sold only two thousand copies. He recounts his rise to stardom, giving a behind-the-scenes look into the recording studios, concerts, movie sets, and after-parties of a hip-hop celebrity and movie star. He reflects on his controversial invitation to perform at the White House, a story that grabbed international headlines. And he talks about the challenges of balancing fame, love, and fatherhood.
One Day It'll All Make Sense is a gripping memoir, both provocative and funny.
