Chinx ft. Jadakiss – Dope House (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 7th, 2015 by Hyphen

Another guilty pleasure alert (shout to Fetty Wap).  I dunno, there’s just something about the record that I like, but content-wise, it’s the same ol’.  For ignorant times, make it Suntory Chinx Drugz time.

DJ Hyphen & J. Moore – Cornerstone Mixtape #160

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes, Sound Session on June 7th, 2013 by Hyphen

Cornerstone #160

It’s about that time again!  Loyal Sound Session fans will likely remember that J. and I hosted Cornerstone Mixtape #115 back in May of 2009 with DJ B-Mello on the 1’s and 2’s (click here to check that out if you missed it!), and now we’re happy to report that we’ve been selected again to head up the long-running, historic mixtape series.  We are presenting May’s tape, marking 4 years to the month since our last go-round, and also celebrating our recent 8 year anniversary of SNSS!

Just like last time, it’s an absolute honor to be selected for this tape.  The team at Cornerstone has always been some of the most knowledgeable, respectable, and coolest cats in the industry and they’ve curated this monthly mixtape series for over a decade with care, skill, and consistency that very few can match.  As soon as I started working at my college radio station, I became a fan of their monthly releases, which always featured the dopest DJ’s from around the world presenting their take on the freshest music of the moment.

To say that in this small way, we can compare ourselves to folks like Jazzy Jeff, Pete Rock, Revolution, the Fantastic Four, Sway & King Tech, the Baka Boyz, Premier, Red Alert, Kid Capri, Stretch Armstrong, Bobbito, J. Period, etc….honestly, it’s still an incredible feeling.  We’re just happy we’ve been able to do what we’ve done over the last 8 years and we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished.  When cats like Rob Stone, Dru Ha, J, Kid Potential, and the rest of the Cornerstone crew recognize and choose to highlight us with their series (twice!), it’s humbling.  We’re just very grateful.  Thank you, fellas.

For this tape, we decided to recreate what we do with Sound Session each week on KUBE 93.3 FM so it plays almost exactly like our live broadcasts, just without the commercials and with the swear words (even better, right?). We selected some of our favorite records of the moment and tried to highlight those that weren’t getting the credit they deserved.

These include great songs from some bigger names like Black Milk, Tyler, Big K.R.I.T., De La Soul, Blu, and Chance The Rapper, and also guys who are steady on the come up like MeLo-X, Young Roddy, the Smash Brovaz, Phil Beaudreau, Johnny Polygon, and more.  Plus, you know we always rep for the Northwest, and with our scene exploding right now, there were plenty of options to choose from.  In the end, we picked songs from John Crown, Nacho Picasso, Avatar Darko, Jake One, and the Physics.  We even tossed in a few world premieres, one from our homey THURZ and the other a dope record from The Game featuring Jadakiss, Styles P, and AR-16 that the world hasn’t heard before.

Above all, it’s 80 minutes of DOPE music.  This is what we do.  And we’re happy to share it with you.

Alchemist ft. Snoop Dogg, Jadakiss, & Pusha T – Lose Your Life (video)

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

My friend: “There are so many dope videos dropping these days, it’s tough to keep up.”
Me: “Didn’t I just talk to you bout my new job?  Tell me about it…”

Here’s that video Al was talking about in my interview with him and Evidence off his new EP, The Alchemist Cookbook.  It’s always cool to see someone tackle making a video for a song like this in a dope and creative way.  Super dope, but if only they could have dropped this in time for Halloween…

Wack Lyric of the Day, 8-4-08

Posted in Artists, Joints, Wack Lyric of the Day on August 4th, 2008 by Hyphen

Cham

Disclaimer: I like Koopa, but this might be an all Chamillionaire WLotD week.  He’s had a lot of questionable lines recently, which is probably a product of releasing so many punchline heavy verses.  If you do that, you’re bound to have some that don’t quite come off.  Herrrrrrrrre we go:

“When it come to fans, I got hella like copters”
–Chamillionaire, “What’s Up”

BTW, “What’s Up” is a new joint from Rhymefest featuring Cham and Jadakiss that just leaked last week.  If you missed it, here you go:
