Heavy D, Kool G Rap, Grand Puba, CL Smooth, Big Daddy Kane, Pete Rock, and Q-Tip – Don’t Curse (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Throwbacks on November 8th, 2011 by Hyphen

RIP Heavy D! I never met Heav, but from all accounts, he was an incredibly positive and amazing person. He was a classic hip-hop icon that could span all sub-genres of the culture to get love from everyone. Don’t just remember the uptempo pop songs and dance moves…dude could rhyme.

He’ll be missed in this industry and worldwide.

Pete Rock interview at Amoeba Music

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on February 7th, 2009 by Hyphen

(if it doesn’t play, you can watch on the Amoeba site here)

This is a little old but it’s actually one of the better interviews that I’ve seen with Pete Rock, who normally stays pretty guarded and low key during press interaction.  Pete’s a legend to anyone in the know, but I still don’t think he gets the props he deserves.  He’ll always be underrated to me when compared to the other great producers.

Shout to Paul and the Amoeba family for sending this through.
