Sound Session #431 (9-15-13)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 19th, 2013 by Hyphen


Fun show this week on SNSS.  First, our homies Onry Ozzborn and JFK came through to world premiere a Grayskul track off their new Zenith album.  It’s the first Grayskul album in years, so fans don’t have to wait any further for the duo to release new music together.  Cop that!

Also, while in town to watch his cousin Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks play the San Francisco 49ers, good friend of the show, Mistah F.A.B., stopped by to chop it up about our two favorite topics: sports and music.  We talked a bit about what it’s like for him and Marshawn to be from the Bay Area but repping for the Seahawks now, at a time when the two teams have the top rivalry in the NFL.  He also discussed his new mixtape, Hella Ratchet, which, as the title might indicate, is rather self explanatory.  Be sure to cop that for some classic ratchetry and…how do the kids say it…turn up!

As is tradition with F.A.B., he also blessed us with a CRAZY freestyle off the top of his head, tossing in Seattle references left and right and incorporating topics we discussed on and off air all night.  A lot of your favorite MC’s have declined to rhyme on air, so it’s always refreshing to have someone come through and insist on spitting, especially when it’s a legit freestyle and not a random written verse.  All respect to F.A.B., a true master of improvisation.

You can watch the freestyle right here:

Mistah F.A.B. – Live Freestyle on Sound Session (video)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Live Performances, Sound Session on September 19th, 2013 by Hyphen

The homey Mistah F.A.B. stopped by SNSS this week and as is tradition with F.A.B., he blessed the mic with a crazy freestyle off the top of his head.  He completely killed it, with all sorts of Seattle references for us: his cousin Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch and his 3 touchdowns in the Seahawks vs. 49ers game earlier that night, Richard Sherman vs. Skip Bayless, Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton, Tha Bizness, Macklemore, and more.

Props to F.A.B. for being one of the few MC’s brave enough to spit…and murder…a legit freestyle live on air with us.  Some of your favorite MC’s have declined to rhyme live with us, and even those that do rarely do it off the top.  No writtens here, just improvisational skill at it’s finest.

You can download the audio of the freestyle right here –

And the full interview is available on the archive for SNSS #431, right here.

Drake ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga – The Motto (Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 21st, 2011 by Hyphen

Aw man…when I saw this picture, I didn’t think it was actually going to be the attire for the “Motto” video…amazing hahaha.  In any event, the song is dope…actually, amend that: the beat, hook, and Drizzy’s verse are dope.  I’m not sure why Tyga was invited to the party, other than to help continue raising his buzz, which is actually starting to increase these days.  Wayne…I don’t even know where to start.  Let’s just say his appearances remind me more and more of this every day:

Shrug. Tunechi!
