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!

Sound Session #484 (9-21-14)

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

SNSS

J. Moore was down in California for a wedding this week, so our homey (and the official DJ of the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks) DV-One filled in on this episode of SNSS.  We played new tracks from Rick Ross, HaLo, Jake Lambo, Consequence, Homeboy Sandman, Logic, Bun B, Raury, Bipolar Sunshine, GoldLink, Sinead Harnett, Kiesza, and more.  Making it quick this week so I can see what this iPhone 6 is all about (and no, I didn’t get the Plus…that thing is insane), plus I need to mentally prepare myself for hanging out with George Takei tomorrow morning and Sam Smith tomorrow afternoon.  That’s a tough combo to beat!
