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.

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!

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!

SNSS

On this week’s SNSS, we gave world premieres to two dope records: Sam Lachow’s “Action Figures (Remix)” with Sol and Mario Sweet, plus a cut off the upcoming NehruvianDOOM project from Bishop Nehru and MF Doom.  Be sure to peep those, along with the block of music from Flying Lotus to Prince, which might have been my favorite string of records we’ve played in quite some time.  None of them are rap records, but that alt/indie/pseudo-R&B or dance is killing everything else right now, especially when it comes from the UK.  Don’t sleep.
