Paten Locke – Ventilation (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 8th, 2010 by Hyphen

Sound Session heads will recall us playing this record when it first dropped and now Paten, Tres Records, and Jerome D have linked up to create some dope visuals for it.  Just that raw, genuine boom bap that we all know and love.  Great stuff off Super Ramen Rocketship.

Marco Polo making a beat

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on June 9th, 2009 by Hyphen

Marco is one of my favorite producers these days and honestly, nobody is really seeing him on some straight up boom-bap head nodding type slaps.  Check out this clip to watch him piece together sounds from multiple sources to make yet another banger.

Cop MP’s project with Torae, Double Barrel, in stores now!  Support dope music & good dudes.

PackFM – Absolutely Positive (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 12th, 2009 by Hyphen

This joint follows that last post nicely.

So as I was saying, people who run around complaining that NYC has fallen off have no idea what they’re talking about, plain and simple.  Regardless of what superstars are dominating the mainstream hip-hop coverage, New York artists like PackFM and Domingo have been releasing quality music for years.  So remember all those years where you saw nothing but shiny suits and XXXXXXXXXXL white tee’s and you pined for “real” hip-hop?

It’s been there the whole time.  Stop sleeping.  PackFM & Domingo’s I F*cking Hate Rappers drops soon…

Blaq Poet – Ain’t Nuttin’ Changed (video)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Music Videos on February 16th, 2009 by Hyphen

Nothing spectacular, but I dig this track and video from Blaq Poet and DJ Premier.  You could easily tell me this was from ’99 and I wouldn’t think twice.  Great use of Akon’s vocals…woah, never thought I’d say that.

Video swiped from OnSmash.
