Slaughterhouse – Hammer Dance (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 29th, 2012 by Hyphen

Here’s the video Joe, Royce, Crook, and Joell shot for “Hammer Dance” while down in Austin for SXSW.  The Shady showcase where 50 did all of Get Rich Or Die Trying was probably the best show I caught while down there (shout to K.R.I.T., who killed that one by the way), so I’m happy to see some footage from Slaughter’s performance included here.

We’ll be airing my interview with these fellas on tonight’s Sound Session, tune in!

Sound Session #353 (3-18-12)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on March 20th, 2012 by Hyphen

We’re back from SXSW and as usual, a good time was had by all.  It would be impossible to list out everyone we ran into, but big shout to all the artists, managers, promoters, record labels, corporate sponsors, etc. that we hung out with.  It’s always fun to catch up and trade stories from the past year, even if the event as a whole certainly jumped the shark this time with all the major artists and companies getting involved.

Special shouts to Hardknock TV and The Smoking Section for organizing the 2nd Annual HoopxHang 3 on 3 basketball tournament.  Just like last year, they invited a bunch of industry cats to play some ball and this time around, I ran with Team Hardknock.  My teammates, Carl Chery from XXL and Nick Huff from Hardknock TV, and I pulled off some March Madness of our own and won the championship…plus bragging rights for the next year.  Good times and a great event overall.

Here’s this week’s SNSS, featuring music from some of the artists we saw at SXSW, including The Kid Daytona, Boldy James, Wiz Khalifa, Schoolboy Q, ASAP Rocky, Jhene Aiko, Miguel, Big K.R.I.T., BJ The Chicago Kid, Polyester, Dee-1, 50 Cent, Nas, and Raekwon.  Enjoy!

50 Cent – Wait Until Tonight (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 18th, 2011 by Hyphen

Aw man, this is that old Ferrari F50 that I’ve missed.  Scoop Deville’s Bobby Womack flip is perfect and Fif’s flow is straight out of 2002.  Those days when G-Unit were running the mixtape scene were some of my favorite times and this record sounds like it could have been on any one of those tapes.  Great record.

I’m not buying the headphones though.

S1 preps a beat for 50 Cent

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 25th, 2008 by Hyphen

The criminally underrated Symbolic One (of the Strange Fruit Project) brings y’all inside his studio as he works on a beat that’ll hopefully end up on 50’s next project, Before I Self Destruct.  It’s a nice quick look at the creative process of one of the best producers out there, plus beat they’re working on sounds like a banger.  Shout to his dude Caleb on the keys as well.  Be on the lookout for S1’s debut solo project, The Music Box, coming real soon.

Spotted on S1’s blog.
