“Rappers” be cold frontin’
They like Forrest Gump.. Them ni**as don’t know nothin’

Those words were recorded in ’95 by an authentic, skillful, supreme silky-slick smooth brother who stays on point after 28+ years (!) and still rocks the mic while stayin’ true to the game and his own self from day one… MAN, do those words ring fuckin’ true today. Think about it.

True And Living appears on Lord Finesse‘s 3rd album The Awakening.

Produced by Lord Finesse

Rapper Big Pooh shares another unreleased joint. Just like the Seinfeld joint with Phonte, Room To Breathe also comes with an interesting story.

Back in 2010 as I was finding my groove for Dirty Pretty Things I got some joints from DJ Khalil. I wrote this joint and got Khrysis to reference the hook I wrote. I like the feel he gave it so I decided to keep his vocals on there. Time goes by and I end up being contacted by a guy named Griffin Guess who says he wants to put out some music of mine through his new company. He references he has done some work with/for Kanye and he manages his wife, Marissa Miller. I figured I’d go through the process and see if the look was as good as the thought. After going back and forth, I decided to try it out for one album. Although skeptical, we go to the paperwork phase and begin negotiating terms. During this time I chose this to be the lead off (this was before I recorded the Seinfeld joint with Phonte). I went out to LA and took pics for the single cover, did a mixing session for this joint and negotiated a fee for Khalil. Shit fell apart soon after when Griffin then attempted to slide me a management contract on top of the label deal. I parted ways with Griffin before completing my project and didn’t feel right using this joint after Khalil was promised a fee that wasn’t delivered. I still was blessed with two Khalil joints for the album.

DJ Phat Phillie najavit će svojim DJ setom u Poreču nastup legendarnog dvojca iz Philadelphije, Fresh Princea & DJ Jazzy Jeffa na MTV Summerblastu 26. kolovoza.
Evo što Phillie kaže o utjecajima njih dvojice na njegovo Hip-Hop odrastanje.

‘Odrastali smo na glazbi Jazzy Jeffa & Fresh Princea od sredine 80-ih pa sve do danas… 1988. je njihov album ‘He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper’ cčk bio objavljen i kod nas, imam bar 5 kopija tog vinila :). Sjećam se da sam njihov najveći hit ‘Summer Time’ prvi put vidio na Yo MTV Raps! u ljeto 1991. godine kada sam bio u New Yorku u ljetnoj školi kao exchange student i kupio vinil na 7. Aveniji u dućanu Rock & Soul. Da ne pričam koliki je utjecaj imala serija ‘Fresh Prince s Belairea” za nas mlade hip-hoppere u Zagrebu… Od tada sam imao prilike družiti se s Jeffom te ga ugostiti u Hrvatskoj nekoliko puta. Velika mi je čast i zadovoljstvo da otvaram njegov i Willov povratnički nastup sa svojim DJ setom 26.8. na MTV Summer Blastu u Porecu…Vidimo se tamo’

Druženje s Jazzy Jeffom u Munchenu prije nekoliko godina na Fresh Island press konferenciji.
