U-N-I & Ro Blvd – Hollywood Hiatus (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Videos on April 8th, 2009 by Hyphen

Man, I’m kinda speechless right now.  The homies Y-O and Thurz have really outdone themselves with the new clip for “Hollywood Hiatus” off A Love Supreme.  Much respect to super director Tomas Whitmore who has directed all their clips (and El Prez’ “UAINTUPONTHIS!”), and they seem to get better each time.  All these joints are smashing major label videos right now.

Cop that Love Supreme if you haven’t already…hint: it’s free!

El Prez & Dale Danja – Perfect Strangers EP

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on January 31st, 2009 by Hyphen


A lot of people have been asking me about El Prez’ “Hammerman” joint that I’ve played on the last few Sound Session episodes.  Well, ask no more because the project is finally here for y’all to enjoy.  Prezzo linked up with his partner in crime, Dale Danja, to drop the Perfect Strangers EP and they’ve put it up for free download. Make sure you grab this one and then get Prez’ Daily Show project that came out last year if you’ve been sleeping…

Hit up the fellas at WhatEyeThought and download Convinced’s Refreshing project right here.  FCC like what.

El Prez ft. DNEZ – It Is What It Is (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 18th, 2008 by Hyphen

My train of thought:

  • Ah, I hate that phrase, “it is what it is”…right up there with “everything is everything.”
  • Oh wait, this is from Prez…that dude is dope.
  • Oh word up!  This is off his mixtape from a few months back…good stuff.
  • I was already won over, but I forgot Prezzo gave the ill Above The Rim reference.  Shout to my favorite movie of all time.  “Guard?  Coach, I’m all the guard you need!  Man…get to the back of the bus.”
  • Haha, forgot DNEZ kicked a Beckham line too.
  • Man, the new West ain’t playin’.

El Prez – The Daily Show (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on September 6th, 2008 by Hyphen

El Prez Front

My man El Prez from Los Angeles has been leaking new joints recently, but he just dropped the official mixtape for y’all to check out entitled The Daily Show.  If you’re a Sound Session listener, you may remember Prez from his “UAINTUPONTHIS!” joint with the U-N-I homies.  And if you remember that, you know dude is dope.  I would write more, but I need to get some ish ready for Rock The Bells later today at the Gorge.  Matter of fact, I think I’ll bump this on the way down to the show…

Tracklisting and download link after the jump! Shout to What Eye Thought for the drop.
