Fred the Godson Freestyles on Flex

Fred the Godson (@fredthegodson) blew up Funk Flex’s show on Hot 97 back in September.  He turned a freestyle into something he could lay down on his album.  I’ve never heard of him before, but he has a lot of creative puns and throwback references. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

Lil Jon at Headliner Music Club Conference

This week at the HMC offices, Lil Jon came by to show the HMC DJs some love and promote his  latest single “Alive” featuring Offset and 2 Chainz produced by Party Favor and FKi 1st.  Some DJ’s flew in from as far as London and New Orleans to get the true “Headliner Music Club Conference” experience.

Many a drinks were had and many a tacos were eaten.  Felli Fel took over the mic and did a good job keeping the event moving and keeping us all entertained.  Five, D-Lux, Skratchy and Fashen kept the vibe upbeat throughout the night on the 12’s.

Lil Jon came out and talked a little to the crowd and...

DJ Spinbad’s ‘2000s Megamix’

So, when I was a younger buck, Vice and I discovered an amazing mix tape. This was after we worshiped DJ Rectangle for his quick, ridiculously clean mix tapes. It was an 80’s mix laced up by DJ Spinbad and it seemed like he was able to take what was in our head and execute it perfectly onto a mix tape. Of course it was way beyond what we were capable of doing at the time, but we loved the style so much...

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 featured pic).

40 YEARS OF HIP HOP

I could not have described it better…

Over 150 songs from more than 100 artists representing 40 years of hip hop all crammed into 4 minutes. It’s not a chronological history of hip hop. It’s rappers from different eras finishing each other’s rhymes over intersecting beats, all woven together to make one song.

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...
