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…

PackFM – I F*cking Hate Rappers (live acapella)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on February 4th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homey Pack is linking up with Domingo to drop the most truthfully titled EP ever, I F*cking Hate Rappers, and he spit one of the verses acapella at a recent show in Boston.  Seriously, every line in this verse is on some real ish and there’s a good chance he’s talking to many of you reading this very blog.  I’m not trying to diss anyone who enjoys TAOD, but if you listen to this and the shoe fits, sorry dude.

Like the folks over at 206proof like to talk about, don’t be a hobby rapper.  If you do this for real, have some talent and some respect for yourself, your listeners, and the culture in general.  Pack’s been doing this for like 15+ years and he’s the definition of a real MC.  Don’t wait until the EP drops to realize he’s calling you out.

For more, hit up the homies on the official QN5 blog.

Amy Winehouse – Stronger Than Me (Domingo Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Remixes on August 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen

QN5‘s Domingo remixed a classic joint from Amy’s first album and they synced it up to the original video.  After one listen, I still prefer the original, but that’s cause I’ve bumped that one about 23981293218 times (and cringed at the homophobic lines each time).  Domingo did his thing on the remix though, good ish.  Some of you younger cats might be familiar with part of this song, since B.o.B. sampled it for “Grip Your Body.”  And the nerve of them to label it as “featuring Amy Winehouse.”  I hate when people do that.

Sidenote: get yourself together Amy, we need you back.
