Video: Ed Lover - C'mon Son Episode 15


From Audible Treats:

Video: Ed Lover - C'mon Son Episode 15

The Video:

Since nothing can stop him, Ed Lover is back with the latest episode of his landmark web series C'Mon Son. In the latest episode, Episode 15, Ed wastes no time going in on the BET Awards where he ribs on Diddy's smoke-filled performance with Dirty Money, heckles celebrity fashion choices and chuckles at Chris Brown's now infamous tear-filled Michael Jackson tribute. Not missing a beat when it comes to celebrity shame, Lover also takes a little time to throw a few barbs at Lady Gaga's latest booze-fueled hi-jinks, and Nicki Minaj's obsessive wardrobe changes. Not even royalty is safe. Did you catch Prince Henry falling off his royal horse and onto his royal... ? Well Ed did, and the laughter only begins there. Ed Lover is no stranger to tickling hip-hop's funny bone, and the hundreds of thousands of views on his popular web series indicate he still has the knack for making us laugh.

Check out Ed Lover's latest webisode, C'mon Son Episode 15, here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noabGjs3I-c .



The Background:

Ed Lover is a multi-faceted talent who has been a steadfast presence in hip-hop culture for the past twenty years. He began his career as a rapper with the group No Face, before going on to co-host Yo! MTV Raps with cohort Doctor Dre. Ed Lover and Doctor Dre teamed up again to star in the hip-hop whodunit Who's The Man? and later went on to host the highly rated Morning Show With Ed, Lisa and Dre on Hot 97. Currently being heard as on-air personality at New York's Power 105.1FM, Ed Lover has also recently made appearances on television shows on VH1 in addition to his popular 'C'mon Son' web series.

MP3: Metermaids - "Rust and Sharp Edges" Dead Weather Remix


From Audible Treats:

MP3: Metermaids - "Rust and Sharp Edges" Dead Weather Remix

The Song:

Genre-bending hip-hop duo, Metermaids, supply us with yet another track off their indie rock sampling mixtape, HELLO, recently released as a free download through the group's website. This time, with "Rust and Sharp Edges", the aggressive rhymes of MC's Swell and Sentence continue over an in-your-face, pulse-raising beat. "We wanted to mirror the mood of the beat, but not over-think it, so we kept it simple and sort of battle-oriented," says Sentence of their latest single. The song is a remix of The Dead Weather's "Treat Me Like Your Mother." Swell explains, "Sentence and I were huge, huge fans of the song and the video, and knew that the remix would fit our style perfectly."

Throughout the song, Metermaids make it clear that they "Got it figured out," as the reoccurring vocal snippet says on the hook. The duo has an undeniable confidence about themselves throughout "Rust and Sharp Edges." "We rarely write songs that are just a lyrical free for all," says Sentence. "When we do, it's always fun.".

Among the opening lines of this song, a fair warning is delivered: "We're comin' in, dead bolt the doorway." For those who fail to realize the emergence of something special, a listen to their latest single, filled with raw verses and witty punch lines, should do the trick.

Listen to "Rust And Sharp Edges" Here: http://media.audibletreats.com/Metermaids-Rust_And_Sharp_Edges-Dead_Weather_Remix.mp3 .

Download the Hello Mixtape Here: http://www.metermaidsnyc.com .

The Background:

Hailing from New York City, Metermaids are Swell and Sentence, two emcees who met through the local underground hip-hop scene in 2006. After releasing their debut EP the same year, the duo toured with the likes of Brand Nubian, Atmosphere, Sage Francis, Fabulous, Lady Bug Mecca (Digable Planets), The Lox, and Camp Lo. After this extensive and impressive tour, the duo released their first full-length effort in 2008 entitled Nightlife, exemplifying their choice to create a new sound in crossover music, blending indie rock with hip-hop. The release was followed up with the EP Nightlife In Illinoise. Never resting, that EP was followed with their "Turn The Lights Out" video which quickly became an internet sensation. The follow-up, the critically acclaimed Smash Smash Bang EP earned the group immense industry support, and the interest of top hip-hop producers including 9th Wonder. The band's music is available for free at the group's official website.

From Devo Spice:

Greetings, everyone!

Everyone have a good 4th of July?  Nobody blew up anything important?  Good.  Down to business!

--== NEW CIRQUE DU SO WHAT TRACK ==--
TODAY on The FuMP we are featuring a new track by Cirque du So What, the sketch comedy group which features me, Luke Ski, Shoebox, and Chris Mezzolesta.  Today's track is "Looking For Things: An Amazing New System" which is ripped right from Luke's real life.  Like many of us, Luke takes out his frustrations with everyday life in the form of new comedy material for all of you to enjoy.  As always it's a free download, so go get it!

--== I WANT TILE! SHIRTS ==--
In other Cirque du So What news the I WANT TILE! shirts are now available to order online.  Head over to http://www.cirquedusowhat.net or http://www.baconnipples.com to order your shirt today! (Note, we are temporarily sold out of XXL.)

I've been working on updating the site and it's almost ready, so if the site magically changes in the next couple days don't be surprised.

--== INTERVIEW SUNDAY ==--
This Sunday night at 9pm EDT I'm going to be interviewed on The Hip Hop Shop hosted by Steve "Flash" Juon, a guy I've known for many years from the glory days of the alt.rap newsgroup.  Flash and I were involved in what was arguably the first ever internet compilation album- the alt.rap.unsigned.tape, circa 1992.  Flash runs a web site called RapReviews (http://www.rapreviews.com) and does his Hip Hop Shop show every Sunday night.

You can tune in live, but honestly I'm not sure how yet.  I'll get that information and post it on the web site before the interview.  If you follow me on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/devospice) I'll post about it there too.

--== JULY'S SONGS OF THE MONTH ==--
July's songs of the month are now available over at DevoSpice.com.  This month's free downloads are my new track I Hate Mondays and Flight Check featuring Insane Ian.

--== JUNE'S INSIDER VIDEO ==--
And since it's July that means that The Insider is late.  (Sorry!)  But it's now posted.  Head over to DevoSpice.com to see a very tired Devo Spice mumble and fumble my way through the video.

Here's a direct link to the video:
http://www.devospice.com/insider_play.php?id=12

--==--

That's it for now.  I'm busy getting ready for Nerdapalooza which is in a week and a half.  Hope to see a bunch of you there!

->Later.....Spice
