Jr. Gong at Headliner Music Conference

On July 26, Damian showed up to the Headliner Music Club headquarters and played us his recently released Stony Hill album.  The album was so dope and his hat said it all.  RESPECT!  The album has something for everyone.  Some dancehall, roots, and somethin’ for the smokers.

Damian took time to pose with the DJ’s and signed various items (that is my Welcome To Jamrock promo in the pic above).

When you get a chance, check out what they are doing at Headliner Music Club.  I think it’s a little different and they are making an effort to build the DJ community...

Locksmith Kills It

I’ve been subscribed to and occasionally see a post on my feed from “Team Backpack.”  They have some dope content and I like what they are doing for the culture (at least on the surface).  I think frameworks like this are crucial for the survival of Hip-Hop since commercial tv/radio seem to stick to the same ol’ story lines and stereotypes.  We need platforms to advance the culture.

Most intellectual rap is ignored by the younger generations because they are saturated with a barrage of marketing campaigns and stereotypes...

Lyricks

While hitting the web today, I ran across an article on Vice titled “Asian Raps Biggest Fan Is A White Guy From Staten Island“.  I really don’t know alot of Asian rappers, but I prob know more than your average Joe.  This is just one of the main reasons I love the Hip-Hop culture.  It transcends race, religion and class.  It can be argued that Hip-hop was born in America, but some of the biggest fan bases are outside of the US.  Korea, Japan, Germany…

There is a reason DJ’s and Rappers travel internationally to do shows...

Hack The Planet!

Hackers-Cast

Hackers reaches its 20th anniversary! This film payed tribute to the hacker culture in the mid 90’s (95 to be exact). When I graduated high school and got my first “real” windows 95 computer, this movie just came out. I knew the cheesy 3D effects of them “Hacking the Gibson” and browsing file systems were ridiculous, but at that time i didn’t know what is would actually look like, so… Those images stuck in my head.

When the movie was released, I was a n00b and didn’t know much about computers except to be dangerous.  I played with the autoexec.bat files in Windows 3...

Invoicing…

I used to use an app called Bamboo Invoicing to do all my invoicing, track payments, generate quotes and give reports on earnings annually.  Unfortunately, the guy that built it is no longer developing for it.  It was a great app, open source and it worked for me for a really long time.  He recommended another app as a replacement, so i gave it a try and i love it!  it is called PancakeApp and (although it costs about $180), it was easy to install and is a one time fee.  I hate having recurring fees for applications...
