MP3: DJ JS-1 - "Side Streets" Ft. Illa Ghee, Nutso, Guilty Simpson
Prolific DJ/producer DJ JS-1 is celebrating the release of his latest full-length LP, No One Cares, today by dropping his latest single, "Side Streets." Not only is the highly anticipated album, complete with 40 guests, including artists like KRS-One, Kool G Rap, Sadat X, and Joell Ortiz, and many more, now available for purchase, but fans can stream the full album for free all week as part of AOL Music's Listening Party.
Helping celebrate the release are Illa Ghee, Nutso, and Guilty Simpson, three notable MCs who champion the underground scene alongside JS-1 with the new single "Side Streets." "This song represents how we do the underground shit but get respect," explains JS-1, "while others take Easy Street on the Main Boulevard, but everyone knows they suck." JS continues, "We still enjoy making hardcore hip-hop while others are making very commercial, radio-friendly, pop-dance stuff." The song has an uncharacteristically basic production, made up of two blended samples and a dash of hard drums and bass, because JS-1 wanted people to focus on the hard-hitting verses and the very rare scratch hook. "I used a line from Guru that is from an unreleased acapella DJ Premier gave me," says JS-1. "It's the main vocal that ties it all in: 'I can go to any city/ Get respect in the street.'"
Fans of JS-1 can also watch him live on USTREAM today, from 1:45pm EST to 4:00pm EST, alongside Crazy Legs and Rahzel for their Lunch Breaks show. Says JS-1, "I'll be cooking lunch – chicken cutlet heroes – and then spinning some breaks, saying silly things with Rahzel, and harassing people about my new album. Should be fun!" Fans can watch live by going to http://www.crazylegsworkshop.com or by searching for the term "Lunch Breaks" on USTREAM.
DJ JS-1's new album, No One Cares, is now available via a joint venture between Fat Beats Distribution and JS-1's own Ground Original.
