SNSS

Welp, another week and another delay on archiving SNSS.  Sorry about that, but better late than never (plus the next show will be coming later today)!  On episode #485, we welcomed Central Intelligence, Tasman Holloway, and Vanni Meursing into the studio, plus played cuts by Black Milk, Vince Staples, Logic, Jay Electronica, Kendrick Lamar, Dee-1, Travis Scott, ForteBowie, Def3, BJ The Chicago Kid, Asher Roth, and more.  We even tossed in my guilty pleasure of the last few months, OG Maco’s Vine anthem, “U Guessed It.”

The Def3 record features a great verse from Shad, who dropped by the Sound Session studio recently and we just released the video.  Watch our discussion with one of the best artists, and people, in the whole game right here.

Enjoy the show!

Shad on Sound Session (2014) (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

One of the best writers in hip-hop, one of our favorite artists, and one of our best friends, the incomparable Shad, visited Sound Session to speak with J. Moore and I recently. We discussed a variety of topics, exploring what it’s like coming up in Canada making his style of music, winning the Rap Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) over his countryman Drake, and how he chooses to promote himself in the US market. He also spoke about his last album, Flying Colours, and his plans to take the follow up project in a new direction, before running through a lightning round of questions covering 90’s sit-coms, left handed basketball players, his favorite sneakers, and more.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Shad represents everything I love about hip-hop and I cosign literally every song/message he’s put out into the world.  Very talented, very humble, and very intelligent, I wish more artists would follow in his footsteps.

The Zane Lowe produced highlight from Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour is the official two step record of 2014 and now it gets some visuals, documenting some of Sam’s recent tour life.  Hopefully you’ve had a chance to catch him on his first American tour because his voice is incredible to hear live.

Russ – Yellow (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

The homey Russ has quickly become one of my favorite artists out right now. Dope beats, catchy melodies, and some of the most heartfelt, genuine lyrics in the entire game. What more do you need?

“Yellow” is extra special for me since Russ humbled me with the shout out in the second verse.  Definitely got you homey!

Cozz – Cody Macc (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 4th, 2014 by Hyphen

I always enjoy seeing new talent come out the gate spitting hungry AF and that’s what you’re seeing with Cozz, J. Cole’s newest signing to Dreamville.  The most amazing part of this video is that they actually got shots of Los Angeles without any cars driving around in the background.  But on the real, peep Cozz’s abum that just dropped, Cozz & Effect, and watch out for an appearance on SNSS real soon.

Problem on Sound Session (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on September 25th, 2014 by Hyphen

Problem traveled up the west coast from L.A. to Seattle and dropped by the KUBE 93 studios to chop it up with us for Sound Session on 9/10/14.

We discussed his background, how he originally started by producing on a PlayStation, how he started rapping for chicks, and how he developed arguably the best ad-lib in rap (WHAT!?!).  After talking about his past, he spoke on his upcoming album, “Karma,” and Diamond Lane Music Group’s strategy to make it his biggest release yet.  And as you might expect with a passionate LA native, the conversation ended with Problem explaining why Kobe is the greatest Laker of all time and who’s better, Kobe or MJ.

Big shout to Problem and all of Diamond Lane Music Group, plus the First Ladies for shooting/editing!

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 25th, 2014 by Hyphen

SNSS
