I missed this video from my guy M.anifest when it originally dropped back in January, but better late than never. M takes you back to his homeland of Ghana with visuals for “Makaa Maka,” which loosely translates from Twi as “if I said it, I said it” or “I say it without apology.” Say that then.
While at Rhymesayers’ epic Soundset Festival in Minnesota, the homey Peter Parker linked up with the other homies Jake One & Freeway for a quick chat about their upcoming album, The Stimulus Package. If you thought White Van Music was a big record for Jake and for Seattle, wait till this one drops. It’s gonna be a big moment for the merging of the commercial & underground scenes nationwide.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go destroy some folks on the soccer pitch in this lovely 80 degree Seattle weather. [Jada] ah-HAAAAA [/Kiss]
Big shout to Peter Parker at B96 in Minneapolis (one of the few DJ’s at a big station riding out for good music like we do on Sound Session) for shooting this over and for shouting out the site during the interview. Glad you enjoy the bloggy blogg homey!
I hope everyone is ready for a month full of seeing Asher everywhere. With Asleep In The Bread Aisle dropping on 4-20, he’s going to get a lot of press in the coming weeks and it’s really all deserved. Dude is a dope MC and a cool ass dude, so those with the unnecessary hate can [Jay-Z] go thaaaaataway [/Hov]. Be sure to head on over to MrPeterParker.com on Tuesday the 7th to cop an exclusive mixtape from Asher and Peter, and if you missed his appearance on SNSS a few weeks ago, click here.
One of the nicest up-and-coming MC’s in the game, M.anifest, dropped by Peter Parker’s show on B96 in Minneapolis to drop a little verse and debut a new track from his upcoming Coming To America EP. Big shout to both these dudes…M.anifest for making dope tracks (and being in a crew with the homey Budo) and Peter Parker for having a dope show in the vein of what we do here at KUBE with Sound Session. There aren’t many big stations that have outlets like this in 2009 so I hope y’all are enjoying us while we’re still around!
Peep the joint too:
