Frenkie je prisustvovao Hague Talks konferenciji i održao kratak govor o Bosni, omladini i svojoj muzici…
Svestan činjenice da naše društvo obiluje predrasudama koje, po svojoj prirodi, proizvode diskriminaciju, netrpeljivost i mržnju, želim da kažem reč-dve o refrenu pesme, da predupredim mogućnost da mi neko imputira nešto što ne želim. Konstrukcija „Cigani pipali“ je nešto što sam u detinjstvu čuo bar nekoliko hiljada puta, pre svega kao upozorenje da je nešto prljavo i zarazno. Ovde je ta konstrukcija iskorišćena kao metafora roditeljskih zabrana i pretnji upućenih deci. Te zabrane su, veoma često, propraćene „plašenjem“ dece različitim (nerealnim) „posledicama“ u koje su utkane raznorazne predrasude i stereotipi, na koje upravo ovom pesmom i refrenom želim da utičem i na satiričan način pokažem njihovu besmislenost. Upravo zato ovaj refren stoji baš ovakav pred vama.

Back in 2008., my brother Bizzo Bodega and myself invited almighty PETE ROCK to come and represent at one of our parties in Zagreb, Croatia. This is the Blackout Rap Show tape from Sept 2nd 2008. a few days before Pete came to town and the show was fully dedicated to P.R. Enjoy all 3 parts of the show, we go deep and play a lotta gemz from Pete’s incredible discography. Pete even phones in at some point thru out the show, but seems a little off lol like he was doing the last minute shopping before jumping on the flight to Croatia.

Welcome to Cassette Culture, a column devoted to the content and context of audio cassette tapes.
First, let me introduce myself. I’m a born-and-raised New Yorker who fell in love with the sounds of the city at a young age. I went from The Beatles, Elton John and Fleetwood Mac to Queen, The Police, The Clash and Talking Heads to Chic, Stevie Wonder and Donna Summer to Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Black Uhuru, Kurtis Blow and Run-DMC and finally to the vast world of underground music, 12-inch vinyl and DJing.

Today (September 19th) marks 5 years since Roc Raida has passed away. It’s still fresh on my mind as if it was yesterday. I decided to dig into my files and pull some audio from Premier and I’s monthly party at APT where we saluted Raida. This was from September 21, 2009 on our Roc Raida tribute night. All proceeds from that night went straight to Raida’s family. It was such a sad loss, but such an incredible night of friends, family and industry insiders who came to pay their respects and celebrate the life and accomplishments that Raida left behind.
