Dilla Tribute

Flier design by Ab Rock.

As one of the thousands of artists that are inspired by the work and spirit of James Yancey, I am proud to be a part of special events in his honor every year.  This year a lot of light has been shed on the problems surrounding Dilla’s estate and his mother’s health issues and her financial struggles.  We’re doing our part in Baltimore to help with this upcoming event.  Please come and support a good cause.

Face Laying Down a Verse

True School DJ, super talented M.C. and all around good dude, Face stopped by the studio today to record a verse for the project I’m working on with Heroes 4 Hire.  It might be some time before the album gets heard cause we’re going to try to get it out through some other labels and whatnot, but it’s a really solid project and Face definitely spit a hot 16 for me.

Speaking of things related to Faces, any of you Facebook people that are into DMV hip hop should definitely check out this group dedicated to hip hop from our area.  Hopefully it takes off as more artists from the DMV get some shine. Come CHECK IT OUT.  While you’re logged on, ALSO join the Under Sound Music Group.

Weekend Parties

As you probably know, I am a big streetwear fan, with one of my company’s being DUMB HEAVY, I’m very much a part of that scene.  I love being in the environment of streetwear heads.  Both of the parties over the weekend had plenty of eye candy from the females to the kicks on folks feet.  Anyway, without further yacking, here are the pics.
