Die Antwoord – Enter The Ninja and Drive Fast

This duo is pretty crazy.  I can’t decide if I like it or not… wait, no I love it.  It has definately taken me out of my comfort zone.  Maybe I’m just not feelin’ the music in the US that I have to look elsewhere.  OR it could be that I am turning into my dad and when my kids say, “Dad, did you hear that new “Pitbull?”

I may respond like “If you want to hear real music, let me show you some ‘real’ music!”

As I turn the radio to K-Earth 101 where they are playing the 20 year old music of old: Tribe Called Quest ot The Fugees. 

The Enter The Ninja track also has TsimFuckis, which is cool an...

Jedward – Ice Ice baby featuring Vanilla Ice

I found this pretty interesting.  Although few admit it, everyone used to bump Ice-Ice Baby and do the running man… how else did this happen:

To the Extreme became the fastest selling hip hop album of all time,[20] peaking at #1 on the Billboard 200.[21] The album spent 16 weeks on the charts, and sold eleven million copies.[22] To the Extreme was the best selling hip hop album up until that time.”[23])

Well, in comes the new generation of music, sampling and remakes.  Why not remake one of the top selling albums of hip-hop???  Well, here you go:

Old Skool Show

So Jeff G and Rawn had a pretty popular show on the #1 station in LA (Power 106) called the Aquanet Set.  After a good run, they started a new show called the “Old Skool Show.”  I think Jeff is a very talented on-air jock.  He has always had a cool attitide and stays grounded.  Now take Jeff G and pair him up with one of the most humble/dopest dj’s in LA!?!?!  It’s a winning combo!

I can’t say enough about Rawn.  He is the HOMEY!  Part of the Ewoks crew from LA (yes, a rarely heard of crew that had some of the dopest LA dj’s: Ryo, Coke-e, Clockwork, Echo, Vice and myself...

Google Music Search Officially Launched

We already knew it was coming, but today Google is officially launching built-in music playback results on regular Google search queries.

Much has been made of this new feature, and it certainly will make it easier for users to get straight to a song they’re looking for, but it’s not something we’re getting all that excited about. We’ll admit that finding and playing back a song when all you’ve done is search for lyrics is kind of cool. Still, Google already puts video results from YouTube in the search results page, and more often than not they’re what you’re looking for, anyway.

Right now w...

Death of Autotune – Jay-Z

I know this is a little late, but I’ve been really busy here at my day job trying to impliment a new CRM.  Here is a new track from Jay-Z dissing Autotune (DOA – Death of Autotune).

I agree, it is getting out of hand.  Come on, every song these days have some aspect of Autotune.  Even the ones that can sing are using it…

Check out the track:

It looks like Cheapshot has been busy in the lab.  Today he released his next CD for us all to enjoy.  This is his first CD release since signing with the dopest management agency in the WORLD!!! (Congrat’s Cheap and a shout out to the SKAM family).  I always love his mixing style and music selection.  This is for those crate diggers and music lovers.  If you want to hear American Boy or You’re A Jerk, you’re looking at the wrong mix… Cheapshot is so 3008…
