Kardinal Offishall – Kill Shot (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 31st, 2012 by Hyphen

We played this record on SNSS last week and I love it.  It’s not my favorite “gunshot made into a beat” song (that would be 50’s “Heat“), but Nottz & Kardi turned in a banger.  Plus, Kardi spit some real ish.

Kill shot…it’s a kill shot!

Nottz – Cars (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 29th, 2010 by Hyphen

If, for some silly reason, “Shine So Brite” wasn’t enough to prove to you that Nottz can not only murder the beat but also rip the mic…I present to you, “Cars.”  This dude is crazy dope.

The Clipse on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session, Videos on October 27th, 2009 by Hyphen

(watch in higher quality on HyphenTV)

As I mentioned, Malice and Pusha T recently made their second appearance on Sound Session, dropping by last month to chop it up with yours truly.  We talked extensively about their upcoming Till The Casket Drops album, including breakdowns of their singles with Kanye West, Cam’ron, and Pharrell. They also looked back on their past work, detailed the success of their Play Cloths fashion line, doled out advice to younger artists, and much more.

To listen to the entire interview, including a lot of topics we didn’t include in the video above, peep:

U-N-I talks with The Shameless Plug

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews on December 18th, 2008 by Hyphen

The homegirl KayCee from The Shameless Plug hooked up with the homeboys Thurz & Y-O when they went out to VA a little while back.  Check out the resulting interview to hear the fellas talk about their background, the curse of the “hipster” label, blogs, their upcoming Love Supreme album (y’all aren’t ready), and all sorts of goodness.  You also get some cool live performance shots.

I’ll be posting up an interview I did with U-N-I pretty soon, but first the snow and ice needs to get off the roads so I can go get the audio from the station hahah.  Hold tight!

Breaking News: Jay & Nas support Obama

Posted in Artists, Politics, Videos on October 21st, 2008 by Hyphen

Ok, so we all already knew that Jay-Z and Nas have been two of Barack’s biggest supporters in hip-hop, but it’s great to see the Obama campaign reach out to them and film these official endorsement videos to help win swing states where the artists performed.  Every state has their own page on Barack’s website, so go track down yours and get involved.

Washington people: as we talked about on the last Sound Session, your page is located at Washington.BarackObama.comVolunteer.  All the cool people are doing it (…aka…me).  You know, if the campaign wants me to film one of these celebrity endorsements, they should just holler @ a Hyphey hahaha…

Chase Chad & Kenna in VA

Posted in Artists, Videos on July 15th, 2008 by Hyphen

This seems like an older clip, but I’ve never seen it before and Chad just posted it up on his blog.  Either way, it’s dope.  Chad and Kenna visit their old high school and explain what it was like growing up in Virgina Beach.
