SNSS

I could write pages on the World Cup but I’ll spare you guys.  Hopefully you’re watching and you’re as enthralled as I am, but talk about a punch right in the gut with the way the US/Portugal game ended.  Dah well…hopefully we still get through to the next round.

Speaking of the US Men’s National Soccer team, we welcomed their musical director on this week’s SNSS, none other than longtime friend of the show and arguably the best writer in the rap world, Lupe Fiasco!  We spoke about how he got involved with the team and his new single, “Next To It,” with Ty Dolla Sign.  Additionally, we aired part of our interview from Summer Jam with another great MC, Big K.R.I.T..  If you haven’t peeped the full video of that one, click here – http://youtu.be/gsNueP33BSs

Aside from these two heavyweights, episode #471 featured new tracks from Mike Will, Kendrick Lamar, Joell Ortiz, G-Unit, AB-Soul, J Rawls, Jessie Ware, the Yancey Boys, and more.  Enjoy!

Big K.R.I.T. on Sound Session (2014 KUBE Summer Jam Video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on June 19th, 2014 by Hyphen

Along with Kendrick Lamar, we sat down with another one of our favorite artists at KUBE’s Summer Jam last week, the one and only Big K.R.I.T..  We’ve had Young Krizzle on the show a few times before and he never disappoints.

This time, he spoke about his upcoming Cadillactica album, the criticism he received for Live From The Underground, and the differences in his creative process between mixtapes and albums.  K.R.I.T. also revealed he’ll be working with other producers on Cadillactica and gave us some insight on the tips they shared with him in the studio.  Among other topics, he ended by discussing the motivation behind his “Mt. Olympus” track, the South’s ongoing battle for lyrical respect, and the feeling of when fans connect with his music and support it on a deeper level.

Shout to K.R.I.T. and Dutch for the love, as always, and the First Ladies for filming/editing!

DJ Hyphen & J. Moore – Cornerstone Mixtape #160

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes, Sound Session on June 7th, 2013 by Hyphen

Cornerstone #160

It’s about that time again!  Loyal Sound Session fans will likely remember that J. and I hosted Cornerstone Mixtape #115 back in May of 2009 with DJ B-Mello on the 1’s and 2’s (click here to check that out if you missed it!), and now we’re happy to report that we’ve been selected again to head up the long-running, historic mixtape series.  We are presenting May’s tape, marking 4 years to the month since our last go-round, and also celebrating our recent 8 year anniversary of SNSS!

Just like last time, it’s an absolute honor to be selected for this tape.  The team at Cornerstone has always been some of the most knowledgeable, respectable, and coolest cats in the industry and they’ve curated this monthly mixtape series for over a decade with care, skill, and consistency that very few can match.  As soon as I started working at my college radio station, I became a fan of their monthly releases, which always featured the dopest DJ’s from around the world presenting their take on the freshest music of the moment.

To say that in this small way, we can compare ourselves to folks like Jazzy Jeff, Pete Rock, Revolution, the Fantastic Four, Sway & King Tech, the Baka Boyz, Premier, Red Alert, Kid Capri, Stretch Armstrong, Bobbito, J. Period, etc….honestly, it’s still an incredible feeling.  We’re just happy we’ve been able to do what we’ve done over the last 8 years and we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished.  When cats like Rob Stone, Dru Ha, J, Kid Potential, and the rest of the Cornerstone crew recognize and choose to highlight us with their series (twice!), it’s humbling.  We’re just very grateful.  Thank you, fellas.

For this tape, we decided to recreate what we do with Sound Session each week on KUBE 93.3 FM so it plays almost exactly like our live broadcasts, just without the commercials and with the swear words (even better, right?). We selected some of our favorite records of the moment and tried to highlight those that weren’t getting the credit they deserved.

These include great songs from some bigger names like Black Milk, Tyler, Big K.R.I.T., De La Soul, Blu, and Chance The Rapper, and also guys who are steady on the come up like MeLo-X, Young Roddy, the Smash Brovaz, Phil Beaudreau, Johnny Polygon, and more.  Plus, you know we always rep for the Northwest, and with our scene exploding right now, there were plenty of options to choose from.  In the end, we picked songs from John Crown, Nacho Picasso, Avatar Darko, Jake One, and the Physics.  We even tossed in a few world premieres, one from our homey THURZ and the other a dope record from The Game featuring Jadakiss, Styles P, and AR-16 that the world hasn’t heard before.

Above all, it’s 80 minutes of DOPE music.  This is what we do.  And we’re happy to share it with you.

Download/streaming links below.  Enjoy!

Big K.R.I.T. – Rich Dad, Poor Dad (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 22nd, 2012 by Hyphen

One of the realest records of the year. I’m not sure Live From The Underground lived up to the immense expectations everyone had for it, but K.R.I.T. still delivered a good project and he’s clearly one of the best artists we have in hip-hop right now.

1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) – Lights Down (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 6th, 2012 by Hyphen

Statik & Term take us out to Tokyo with the video for my favorite record off their second collaborative album, 2012.  Anytime you start a video with a shot of that intersection used in one of my favorite movies of all time, Lost In Translation, I’m probably going to love the cinematography.  My only wish would have been to get Big K.R.I.T. in the video and use his verse from the remix.  Still dope though.

Phonte ft. Evidence and Big K.R.I.T. – The Life Of Kings (video)

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

Evidence couldn’t make the video shoot, but no matter…MomTigallo held it down like a star. Another win for Tay and the FE Music homies.

Dee-1’s SXSW Recap (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Other Peoples' Interviews, Sports on March 24th, 2012 by Hyphen

I was already planning on posting this video of Dee-1’s SXSW adventures and then I saw footage of myself guarding him in the HoopxHang Tournament hahaha.  Let the records show that Team Hardknock dispatched Team Nola in that first round game, but on the real, chopping it up with one of my favorite new MC’s was a blast.  Much respect to Dee for his music and movement.  You’re gonna hear a lot from this dude in the near future…

The Fresh from Shocking Goat

Posted in Goods, Videos on August 11th, 2011 by Hyphen

My good friend from back in the day, Dhru, runs a company called Shocking Goat and they make a really dope series of watches.  All cards on the table, I don’t even rock watches, but every time I’ve showed friends or artists “The Fresh,” they love it.  K.R.I.T. even rocked one at our Summer Jam:
