The homies Emilio and Court Dunn link up for the “FTW” video off Life Without Shame. I’d love to play this one on Sound Session, but something tells me it wouldn’t go over that well with the FCC. Haters.
This might be the record that smacks the industry upside the face and finally wakes them up about Emilio, one of the best MC’s in the game today. Off Life Without Shame, download here.
Oh, and shout out to girls who cook in outfits like that…or less.
A cookie goes to the first person who can name Emilio’s last rap moniker…if you know it, you’ve been listening to him for at least a few years and you already know this tape is fire. For the rest of you slowpokes, peep game:
Looks windy. And dope. Props to Derek Pike.
Not a music video, but the homies Court Dunn and Emilio Rojas hooked up for this quick piece where Emilio runs off some things that define hip-hop to him. Really well done and bonus points for the Wu-Tang Financial reference.
See, even though this video plays off an established theme (Saved By The Bell FTW), it’s still more entertaining than Hype’s big budget production below. But anyway, how popular are you?
Little present for y’all that Sky cooked up for us…cop The Salvation in stores now!
Time is absolutely flying. It’s about to be Halloween? WTFFFFFFFFFFF, fail.
Another fun show this week, complete with a great soundtrack from artists like J. Cole, the CunninLynguists, Kidz In The Hall, Skyzoo, Vstylez, Paten Locke, Fashawn, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean, Extended Famm, and more. Shout to the homies Clockwork for coming through the studio and also Emilio Rojas for calling in from NYC, fresh off his victory celebration for the Yankees.
Is it wrong that I don’t even mind that the Evil Empire made it to the World Series this year? It feels like it’s been so long, I’m almost…*gasp*…rooting for them. Ok, perhaps I can’t go that far, but I’m fairly apathetic towards this year’s series. One team that just won and the other team where everyone pretty much has a ring (though I’d like to see CC get one, so he can CC all the girls he see sees around town)? Eh.
I’ll just root for good baseball and hope it goes 7. I bet Cleveland is maaaaad salty looking at those Game 1 starters though…

The homey Court Dunn is steadily becoming one of the top directors in independent hip-hop, and the way he’s going, he’ll soon be knocking out clips for some major label artists as well. I’ve highlighted some of his work on TAOD before, but in case you’ve been sleeping, check out this reel to see some highlights (and hear a crazy beat from Apple Juice Kid as the soundtrack).
Featuring Styles P, B.o.B, Camp Lo, Edo.G, Termanology, Donny Goines, Emilio Rojas, J The S, Silent Knight, Quite Nyce & SEEK
Director Court Dunn has become a prolific force behind the NYC hip-hop scene over the past year-and-a-half, releasing 27 music videos and countless other freelance projects. A frequent collaborator with Vimby.com, he has worked with such artists as Jim Jones, Clipse, Styles P, Camp Lo, B.o.B, Idle Warship, Termanology, Tanya Morgan, Edo.G, etc. and is known for his frequent collaboration with Same Plate artists Emilio Rojas, Donny Goines and J The S.
Specializing in creativity over resources with minimalist sensibilities, Court’s accolades to date include videos on MTV Tres and MTVU (Winner “The Freshmen), a feature film in MovieMaker Magazine (“Future of Filmmaking” issue) and 2 Exclusive Video Series on major hip-hop sites HipHopDX.com and Nahright.com.

The homey Emilio got a nice feature on Loud Favorites the other day. He talks a little about his background, the Phaze One project, DJ K.O.’s upcoming album, and his own EP due out soon. If you missed his video for “That Time,” check it out here. Bonus footage of Emilio spitting some bars (killed ‘em!) after the jump.
Spotted at the Dopehouse.
It’s that time! My man Emilio Rojas (formerly known as Raks-One) just dropped a video for his new cut, “That Time,” featuring production by M-Phazes (“good gracious!”) and cuts from DJ Ease. Dope ish. Be on the lookout for Emilio’s upcoming project, The Nouveau Slick, and a joint project from him and Phazes, aptly titled Phaze One. Download “That Time” below:
