In the wake of one-time Gang Starr rapper Guru’s death at the young age of 47, his latter day producer and partner Solar emerged as hip-hop’s most loathed villain, accused of everything from denying Guru’s family access to their dying kin to fabricating a deathbed statement from the rapper to starting a bogus charity in Guru’s name. This weekend, someone hacked into Solar’s AOL email account and posted a selection of messages via his also-hacked Twitter account. The anonymous hacker made public emails sent between Solar and various parties, including documents that seem to indicate that Solar is more evil than anyone could have even guessed. The emails appear to show that Solar forced Guru to tour instead of seeking medical help; that he controlled Guru’s access to his own email account and various other web presences; that Solar owed money to multiple parties; and, perhaps most chillingly, that Solar attempted to pimp out unreleased music from Guru after the rapper’s death.

In honor of celebrating my birthday (which is today, May 10th) & the kickoff of 1st official European Tour for Crown Royale (Buff1 & Rhettmatic) in a few days, I want to share with you this little collection of songs & beats that I’ve produced.”
“A lot of people know me for being a Battle Dj / Turntablist, as a member of the Beat Junkies, or as a member and the Dj/Producer of the Visionaries… what a lot of people don’t know me for as a Producer… period, and that I have been doing production for quite sometime. I actually want to showcase some material (some Old, some Album & B-Side cuts, some Exclusives) that people might be surprised that I actually produced some songs that was outside of my usual circle; You might be pleasantly surprised to see whom I have worked with….Plus I included some material off the upcoming Crown Royale album with Buff1 & myself.
Hopefully you will enjoy the music & nod your head to this. If you enjoy it, please feel free to share it with your friends or post it up on your music blogs.

DJ and ambassador of all things Detroit, House Shoes, is often over-looked as a producer. One of my favorite Elzhi projects, Out of Focus, was produced almost entirely by House Shoes, as well as 2 joints on the unreleased J Dilla MCA album. Now, we are blessed with a free mp3 download for “Newports,” featured on the fourth installment of All City Records LA 10″ series alongside another Detroit to Los Angeles transplant, Jordan Rockswell.
All City Records LA 10″ Series featuring House Shoes and Jordan Rockswell is out now via 10″ Vinyl, and on iTunes on May 18th!!

Nakon 15 godina maštanja i odgađanja, a deset dana rezanja, kitanja i šmirglanja, napokon je master piece na zidu – 3d graffiti instalacija koja izlazi iz zida u Branimirovoj ulici. Ova instalacija nadilazi dosad poznate i korištene forme graffita jer svojim oblikom izlazi iz zida i postaje dio urbanog reljefa i stvarnom igrom svjetla i sjene tvori dosad neviđenu graffiti instalaciju, pritom i dalje koristeći zid kao medij prenošenja poruke. Instalacija je rađena za javni natječaj oslikavanja Branimirove ulice u sklopu Muzeja urbane umjetnosti u Zagrebu.
Neslužbeni naziv djela je “Mamac za idiote” (zato jer su ga idioti oštetili vec prvu večer nakon postavljanja).
