Pac Div – Whiplash / Young Black Male (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 14th, 2009 by Hyphen

Flawless track(s) and video, though I would have loved to see “Young Black Male” get a full treatment.  That’s one of my favorite songs of the year and every verse on there is fire.  Directed by Carey Williams, who also handled duties for “Pac Div” and “Throwing My Money.”

If you haven’t downloaded Church League Champions yet, what are you waiting for?

Pac Div – Pac Div (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 14th, 2009 by Hyphen

Ahhhhh, are you kidding me?  This is so ridiculously fresh.  As soon as I heard this song a while back, it was an instant classic.  The video is simple, but works and captures the mid-90’s vibe nicely.  If you missed Pac Div on SNSS, check out the interview here and please download Church League Champions ASAP if you’re still sleeping…

Sound Session #222 (8-30-09)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 1st, 2009 by Hyphen

Another fun week here on SNSS in the 206, peep the highlights:

  • Great music from the likes of Brother Ali, Balance, One Be Lo, Fresh Daily, Raekwon, Little Dragon, U-N-I, Mayer Hawthorne, Phonte, and more.
  • A world premiere for the new Blue Scholars track, “Dawn’s Song,” off the upcoming re-release of Bayani.  The track features Shad, possibly my favorite MC in the entire industry right now.  Yeah, I said it.  Not familiar?  Watch this and thank me later.
  • We aired part of our interview with the Pac Div homies.  Be sure to catch the full interview for all sorts of hip-hop and basketball talk.  I mean…is there anything else in life?
  • We gave out tickets for this weekend’s Bumbershoot Festival (where I’ll be DJ’ing for U-N-I) and my most anticipated concert of the year – The Foreign Exchange (Phonte & Nicolay), Darien Brockington, Carlitta Durand, Yahzarah, Zo!, the Physics, and more at Nectar Lounge on September 15th.  We’ll have more Foreign Exchange tickets next week too, so be sure to tune in…
  • More EPL goodness: Chelsea is looking dominant…Arsenal squandered a great chance to put Manchester United further down the table (wtfffffff @ Diaby)…Aaron Lennon finished off Birmingham to keep Spurs’ 100% record intact.  Overall, very exciting.  Can’t wait until we get football and basketball on top of this in a few weeks…
  • On a sad note, we have to give yet another RIP shout to DJ AM, easily one of the illest DJ’s and sneakerheads in the game.  This summer has been rough.

Pac Div – Church League Champions (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on July 18th, 2009 by Hyphen

The long awaited mixtape from Pac Div, Church League Champions, is finally here and it’s heatery, as expected.  As you can tell by the brilliant title, Like, Mibbs, and BeYoung are huge hoops fans and I actually have a great interview with them talking about their music and their favorite sports memories.  Any dudes who love the 2001 Arizona team as much as I do are alright in my book.  It helps that they’re dope ass artists too of course…

Interview coming soon, but in the meantime, bump that new new:

Pac Div – Mayor (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 25th, 2009 by Hyphen

The long awaited video for Pac Div’s “Mayor” just dropped and I think the visuals fit nicely with the 2009 west coast anthem (any other contenders so far?).  Rapping in front of the old Forum was a great touch, though using the “clean” edit with dirty adlibs and sample in the beat was kinda strange.  Universal Motown had that problem when they first sent out the clean edit and it looks like it struck again.  No matter, still a dope track and that beat [west coaster] is hella hooard homey [/*dub*].

Video courtesy of OnSmash.  Be on the lookout for a Pac Div appearance on SNSS soon…

TiRon on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on March 15th, 2009 by Hyphen

I’ve been meaning to post up the full interview with TiRon that we recorded a few weeks ago right before his new Ketchup project dropped, and I finally got some free time this weekend to get it out there for y’all.  If you’re still sleeping on TiRon, you’re missing out on one of the most talented dudes doing it right now.

Be sure to download Ketchup and peep this interview to hear him talk all about his background coming up in the L.A. scene, linking with Pacific Division, the new mixtape and the Handshakes & Pounds, Pt. 2 follow up, how the web helps (and hurts) new artists, and much more.
