TiRon – Ketchup (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on February 26th, 2009 by Hyphen

If you aren’t up on TiRon, you’re in luck.  His new mixtape, Ketchup, allows you to do just that and get familiar with yet another dope MC coming from the new wave of Los Angeles hip-hop.  Mixed by the homey DJ Low Key and featuring guest spots from Tunji, Pacific Division, Blu, Miguel, Buff1, and like 20 verses from Ayomari hahah.  Be on the lookout for Handshakes & Pounds 2, the sequel to his first mixtape, and also watch for an appearance from TiRon on this week’s Sound Session.  Shout to Kevin as well.

Pacific Division – Freestyle In The Park

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on September 16th, 2008 by Hyphen

Chyea.  The boys from LA flew out to the Chi and while out there, linked up with the homies from Ruby Hornet for an excellent edition of their “Freestyle In The Park” series.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a huge fan of acapella verses, but wow.  Like, BeYoung, and Mibbs murdered this and actually spit some ish off the dome, which is pretty refreshing these days.  “they say they looooove it.”

Pacific Division – Taste (video)

“And they say they loooove it.” I do actually, this is my jam.  When are we going to get Pacific Division up here in Seattle?  I think we need to make that happen, somebody holler @ me.

Spotted on 2DopeBoyz.

TiRon on VIMBY

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on August 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen
VIMBY – Tiron

Another one of the talented artists carrying the torch for the new west is L.A.’s TiRon.  You’ve probably heard of him through his collaborations with Pacific Division or Tunji (of Inverse), but if not, time for you to wake up.  This VIMBY clip can serve as a decent introduction, though it’s more comedy than highlighting his music.  To cover that, make sure you download his Handshakes & Pounds mixtape right here.

Shout to Greg The Dude on the production!

Pacific Division on VIMBY

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 23rd, 2008 by Hyphen
VIMBY – Pac Div at Swing House

Since this was from the same show as Inverse’s VIMBY feature, it’s only right that it should get posted now too.  Like, Mibbs, and BeYoung of Pacific Division give a little interview and perform “F.A.T. Boys ’08” and “Paper.”  Dope ish.
