Sound Session #289 (12-12-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on December 14th, 2010 by Hyphen

Alright, not to get all Rev Run/emo-Drake on you, but with my recent home purchase and subsequent move, I’ve been thinking about how my post-college life has broken down nicely into a few sections based on housing.  There was the first apartment phase where I was out of the dorms and really living on my own for the first time (crappy job but fun times).  That was followed by the second, nicer apartment with a better job and more money in the pocket, but overall, not as fun as the no-responsibility days that preceded it.  Now I’m on to the first home section and I’m determined to use the transition as a catalyst to spur the rest of my life on to a new phase as well.

Whether or not you followed the same type of route, your adult life is probably fairly similar.  Anyone reading this is part of the same basic culture and thus we all share the same basic goals, while battling the same basic challenges.  So personally, I’ve decided to take a step back and approach things a little bit more analytical than before.  The new plan is to define, prioritize, execute, complete, repeat, and assess.  That goes for everything in life.  Y’all might be able to do it all a little more fluidly, but I’m left brain.  Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you’re moving forward and progressing.  aka:

Ayo, the brother’s “Stillmatic”
I crawled up out of that grave, wiping the dirt, cleaning my shirt
They thought I’ll make another “Illmatic”
But it’s always forward I’m moving
Never backwards stupid, here’s another classic

And since you’ll need a soundtrack, Hubble SNSS gotchu.

Sound Session #210 (6-7-09)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on June 9th, 2009 by Hyphen

It’s been a busy past few days  for me, so I’ll run through my thoughts for this week’s SNSS quickly with bulletpoints:

  • Courtney Lee.  Courtney, Courtney, Courtney.  That was a gimme and most likely cost the Magic any chance of winning the championship.  Not that they had a good chance to begin with, but that game might have been their only lifeline against a focused Laker squad.  For those of us hoping for a long series, our hopes were dashed with one blown layup (well, two I suppose…but the scoop was a bit tougher).  I hope I’m proven wrong and we get a classic 7-gamer, but I highly doubt it.
  • Aw snap, our Cornerstone Mixtape is finally out.  Read more and download it right here!
  • This week’s show featured music from some of the dopest artists around, including Ghostface, Dead Prez, A.R.M., Outasight, Mos Def, Drake, Tanya Morgan, and more.  And yes, of course we played Jay-Z’s “D.O.A.”…was there ever a doubt?
  • We might have given a world premiere to DJ Spinna’s excellent record with Phonte and Yahzarah, “Guaranteed.”  Not sure if that one has hit the net at all, but if you haven’t heard it, peep it…asap.  Cop Sonic Smash on June 30th!
  • We were also joined in the studio by Kyle Lucas (of Vonnegutt), who talked about signing with Big Boi’s Purple Ribbon label and his new project with Seattle’s own Captain Midnite, along with one of our most talented soul artists in the city, Mycle Wastman.  Speaking of signing, be on the lookout for Mycle to sign to a very major label soon…the ink is almost dry!
  • Peep our final break to hear my mini-rant on T-Pain and his “Big Ass Chain.”  I like T-Pain (kinda), but I gotta call ‘em like I see ‘em.  $410K on a chain, recession or not, is asking for ridicule.
