Young Roddy – The Plot (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 20th, 2012 by Hyphen

Young Roddy from Curren$y’s Jet Life crew drops some visuals for one of the records off his Good Sense mixtape.  Dude is raw, though I was hoping the tape would be over original production.  That said, Roddy kills it throughout.  Download it here.

Dee-1’s SXSW Recap (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Other Peoples' Interviews, Sports on March 24th, 2012 by Hyphen

I was already planning on posting this video of Dee-1’s SXSW adventures and then I saw footage of myself guarding him in the HoopxHang Tournament hahaha.  Let the records show that Team Hardknock dispatched Team Nola in that first round game, but on the real, chopping it up with one of my favorite new MC’s was a blast.  Much respect to Dee for his music and movement.  You’re gonna hear a lot from this dude in the near future…

The Knux – F*ck You EP

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on January 3rd, 2010 by Hyphen

The homies Krispy and Al have been hinting about this little release for quite some time and they finally dropped it via Twitter the other day.  As I was waiting for some artwork to show up, Shake @ 2DopeBoyz cooked up the cover above, so it’s time to rock.  There are only 5 joints, but they’re all dope.  The title track is probably the highlight, but don’t sleep on “Fruits” and “Floozy” either.  More dope ish from the Knux!

Download here.

The Knux on Sound Session (Appearance #2)

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Live Performances, Sound Session on May 25th, 2009 by Hyphen

As I mentioned in the post for the most recent Sound Session, Krispy and Al from the Knux came through the studio to kick it and co-host last night’s show.  We talked about their next album, upcoming tour plans, an all-star remix to their “F!re” track that’s in the works, the Twitter phenomenon, and more. Plus, they even kicked a quick freestyle live over the air.

You can watch part of the interview above (including the freestyle) and/or download the audio below:

The Knux on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on October 1st, 2008 by Hyphen

(click here to watch in HD)

As I mentioned in my last post, brothers Krispy Kream and Rah Almillio, collectively known as The Knux, came through Sound Session a few days ago.  Not only are these dudes cool as hell, but they’re dope lyricists and great musicians who play all the instruments in their songs.  How many other groups are doing that?

We chopped it up about a variety of topics, including their upcoming Remind Me In 3 Days album (y’all aren’t ready), their transition from New Orleans to Los Angeles after Hurricane Katrina, the unique sound behind their “Bang! Bang!” single, and more.  To grab just the audio (including the two songs we played, “Bang! Bang!” and “Cappuccino (Remix)”), hit either of the links below.  Otherwise, watch the video above, but be sure to click here to watch it in glorious HD.

Special shout to my man Brian (and Greg The Dude visiting from L.A.), who handled all the filming and editing.  Brian will be helping us out on a bunch of projects moving forward, so be on the lookout for more SNSS in HD.  You know how we do.

Oh, and a special note that the new homey Krispy wanted me to pass along: those 3 Knux tracks that leaked recently (“Amazing,” “Hard Days Night,” and “Otherside”) are real old and not on the album.  However, you can peep the official sampler right here.  Cop Remind Me In 3 Days on October 28th!
