J. Pinder – Careless Redux (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on November 29th, 2012 by Hyphen

Yee!  New freshness from my guy Pinder.  TAOD and SNSS fam already know the deal, but if you’re sleeping:

After years of living, months of creating, weeks of preparation and sweeping Internet anticipation, J. Pinder’s “Careless Redux” is finally available for free download. Presented by DJ Skee—of KIIS-LA and Sirius XM fame—the 16 track mixtape is an impressively technical yet emotionally raw journey into the Seattle native’s comings and goings: through the club, through the industry, and through his city. Featuring vocal appearances by Musiq Soulchild, Marsha Ambrosius, Rapper Big Pooh, and Thurz, “Careless Redux” weaves together a wide range of beats from some of the best producers in the game: Vitamin D, DJ Khalil, Kuddie Fresh and Illmind.

Full of rewind-worthy moments, “Careless Redux” has a mood and a mission for every listener. Producers Mel & D and DJ Khalil collaborate with J. Pinder for “King,” an instant head-nodder that begs for a special sort of ride in the whip. On “Float’n,” J. Pinder rises to the occasion of Kuddie Fresh’s heartfelt strings and heartbeat drums, delivering a meditation on hard days and harder work. J. Pinder depicts his world with sharp story telling, polished mic skills and playful punchlines, transforming his world into everyone’s world.

Get familiar with Fortilive

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on October 4th, 2008 by Hyphen

I tried to put y’all up on Fortilive damn near 2 years ago when I put “Stereotypes” on my last mixtape, but now Mush, Slo-Mo, and Illmind are really starting to make their push.  In case you still aren’t familiar, peep the video above for a nice introduction to the crew.  Be on the lookout for their upcoming mixtape and album, both of which will be fire.  Stay up to date on their MySpace page here.

Heltah Skeltah – Everything Is Heltah Skeltah (video)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Music Videos on September 4th, 2008 by Hyphen

My thoughts:

  • Illmind killed that beat.
  • Sean and Rock murdered their verses, especially P.
  • Rock’s “…and I like Macy Gray” line reminds me of one of my pet peeves: if you use someone for a punchline, don’t apologize right afterward.  Especially if it’s someone like Macy Gray.  I think Royce did the same thing with an Omarion line a while back.  You’re a dope, grimy rapper…why are you copping out of dissing somebody like Macy Gray or Omarion?  wtfffff.
  • Why’d the Charlie Manson character look like a cross between Carrot Top and “The Interrupter” off Conan O’Brien’s show?
  • Look out for D.I.R.T. dropping September 30th!
