At the age of 17, Brooklyn product Dillon Cooper attended Berklee College of Music via Jay-Z scholarship. His smooth delivery and ability to rap is reminiscent of Golden age 90s HipHop. In addition to emceeing, Dillon plays guitar, piano, and produces. Inspired by his friend and professional rollerblader Brian “Cozmik” Scott, who was innocently gunned down in a local BK coffee shop, Dillon is set to release his official debut mixtape in Brian’s honor entitled “Cozmik” on Amalgam Digital. This is the 1st buzz video “Survival of The Fittest”.
North Carolina’s own Supastition releases ‘The Blackboard EP’, a FREE 8-track digital EP. The project serves as a “thank you” to the listeners who continued to support his music after his sudden departure from the music business in 2010. The Blackboard is about returning to the basics of emceeing and rediscovering that vintage sound that Supastition has been known for since his debut album in 2002.
The project features the critically acclaimed, ‘Yada Yada’, the conceptual ‘Best Worst Day’, and the boom bap inspired ‘Indestructible’. The only guest appearances on The Blackboard EP are the DJ duo, Faust & Shortee, and German-based vocalist Dominique. Production on the EP is handled by longtime producers Marco Polo, M-phazes, Veterano, the Mighty DR, and Croup as well as Rik Marvel and Dirty Art Club. Along with the EP, a Lyric book and write-up about each song has been included with the download of the EP via Supastition’s Bandcamp page.
To download this EP for FREE, please input $0.00 (at the “name your price” option) and you will receive your free download via email link. If you wish to purchase the EP (at any price that you choose) and contribute to support Supastition’s music, you have that option as well. Thank you for all your support.

In another episode of our “Vinyl Check” section we chopped it up with Evidence, Rakaa and DJ Babu of Dilated Peoples backstage at splash! Festival 2012. We were going through their catalogue as a group, as well as their respected solo efforts to talk albums and singles like ”The Platform”, ”Expansion Team”, ”The L.J.’s”, ”The Weatherman LP”, “Crown Of Thorns”, “Third Degree” or “Duck Season”. We also touched on records from artists they are close with such as The Alchemist (”1st Infantry”), Kanye West (”College Dropout”) or Defari (”Bionic”). They gave us an in-depth look how these records were created back then and what they mean to them nowadays.
