Subsoniq Pulled from SiriusXM Airwaves

Subsoniq Pulled from SiriusXM Airwaves

Here's what had to say about this disappointing turn of events:

"It seems that after 7+ years on the satellite radio platform, SiriusXM has decided to pull Subsoniq from the air indefinitely.

Subsoniq was the long running premiere “progressive hip hop” show on the satellite platform.

K-Murdock Comments On His Blog

Here's what K-Murdock had to say about the situation on his blog:

"What a crazy 1-week span for me as far as emotions go! Last tuesday i was both elated & relieved that my latest project, "Piano-rama", was finally seeing the light of day here in the States... and NOW, i sit here feeling shocked & betrayed after learning Monday that the show i hosted for the last 8 years on XM Satellite Radio, Subsoniq, is no more!  One thing i have learned during my 10-year tenure in the "radio business" is that no one/show is promised tomorrow!  Trust me, when the big-wigs make decisions, the talent, and more importantly, the FANS are the last to know!  What really sucks beyond the fact that i wont be able to go on air and help promote good, progressive hip-hop music anymore, is that the artist who make it, will have one less, yet major, outlet to get it played on!"

TRUTHLiVE - "Shoot Me Down" prod. by Tha Bizness

From Audible Treats:

TRUTHLiVE - "Shoot Me Down" prod. by Tha Bizness

Founder Of Interdependent Media TRUTHLiVE Prepares for Pre-Album Release, The Unlearning, With First Leak

"If you truly believe in something... If you truly believe in yourself... Don't let outside opinion change your feelings. Stay committed to your dreams."
-Evan "TRUTHLiVE" Phillips

The Song:

"Shoot Me Down," the first single from TRUTHLiVE's EP The Unlearning, paints a biography of the emcee's life experience. TRUTHLiVE explains, "In all honesty, what sparked the idea for the song was the gunshot and respirator breathing sound effects already in the beat." The song's intense drumbeat and bass set the tone, while a piano line and soul clap give the track an extra pop. As the piano mimics the spoken pulse, TRUTHLiVE drives the song's theme home, rapping, "They wanna shoot me down, wanna kill all my dreams/ But I keep on breathing, keep on believing." As a self-proclaimed optimistic realist, TRUTHLiVE built on the sounds of Tha Bizness' powerful beat and produced an empowering theme song for the downtrodden.

"Shoot Me Down" is a response to the many doubters that independent artists face. "Being an indie artist on the 'underground' circuit is a struggle," says TRUTHLiVE. "I've come across countless non-believers and outright haters - those who don't think I have chosen a viable career. I have always remained steadfast in my conviction for Hip-Hop, emceeing, and poetry." The Unlearning is the precursor to TRUTHLiVE's forthcoming album Patience, meant to give listeners a taste of his unique style. The EP features production by Tha Bizness, who have worked with 50 Cent and Lil' Wayne, as well astracks crafted by The ARE, Vitamin D, J-Zone, and TRUTHLiVE himself.

As the owner and founder of Bay Area record label Interdependent Media, TRUTHLiVE has helped promote the careers of artists such as Tanya Morgan, Finale, J*DaVeY, and more. His full-length debut album Patience, produced entirely by Jake One, will be available April 20, 2010 via Interdependent Media.

Check out "Shoot Me Down" prod. by Tha Bizness - .

The Background:

Evan "TRUTHLiVE" Phillips, owner and founder of Interdependent Media, has certainly made his mark in the music industry with his wide range of talents. As an emcee, DJ, entrepreneur, and artist, TRUTHLiVE has had his hands in everything from a very young age. After a traumatic adolescent period where his health was at risk, three heart surgeries proved the artist to be quite a fighter. He explains to his new listeners, "The name TRUTHLiVE doesn't mean that I'm proclaiming myself as the truth, end-all be-all; it's more of a reminder to myself on how to conduct my life and career." The MC best summates, "My music is my truth and my life." That meaningful music will arrive on April 20th in the form of Patience, TRUTHLiVE’s debut release, courtesy of Bay Area label Interdependent Media.

Wild Cowboys II album

Sadat X feat. Pete Rock
Produced by Pete Rock

Official MP3L .

World Premier 1/26/10 with Tony Touch on Shade 45 (Radio Rip): .

Few artists in hip-hop have afforded the longevity that Sadat X has. Gearing up to release his 7th solo album, this one is sure to bring back the "Great Dot X" of his original Wild Cowboys album 1996 release. Unmoved by an inevitable changing of the guard in Rap, Sadat remains a beacon of true, un-facsimiled artistry. In so many words, he sits atop the lists of your favorite rappers favorite rapper. Part of the legendary hip hop group Brand Nubian, Sadat is well known for his politically charged lyrics and poignant delivery.
    “Wild Cowboys II” has been long awaited and highly anticipated and will deliver raw hip hop to all. This album has brought so many together that wanted to take part in this classic historical sequel - which features some of hip hops finest: Kurupt, ILL Bill, Umi & M-1 of Dead Prez, Andre the Giant (A.G.), Rhymefest, Grand Puba, Lord Jamar and Twan.  As well as a host of producers, including: 9th Wonder, DJ Spinna, Sir Jinx, Pete Rock, Diamomd D, Buckwild, Will Tell, Grant Parks and more. This album is destined to be classic like it’s predecessor!
    Sadat continues to write innovative songs, deliver relevant contemporary commentary and effortlessly stays tuned to the trends of today.  Having enjoyed an outstanding career in hip hop as one of the genres most distinctive voices, his undeniable twang has commanded songs not just with Brand Nubian but alongside our genres greatest from Jay Z, Notorious B.I.G., Nas and Common – to name a few. Extraordinary producers have also gone the extra mile for a good X verse - from The Neptunes, to Primo, to Madlib and Prince Paul.
