Sound Session #320 (7-17-11)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on July 18th, 2011 by Hyphen

While J. Moore repped Seattle to the fullest with Shabazz Palaces at the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago, I held down the SNSS fort with the intern, Young Nick (aka Beeba) back here in the 6.  Another week, another fun show full of great music.  This time, we highlighted work from folks like Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Don Trip, Purple HeArts, The Black Opera, Nikki Jean, The Weeknd, Tall Black Guy, and more.  Of course we also played the underground hero, Big K.R.I.T., who I got the honor of choppin’ it up with at our Summer Jam on Saturday.  Peace to his crew (Dutch, Wally, & Sant) and shout to the other homies we ran into, B.o.B, Playboy Tre, B. Rich, and TJ!

All that said, I think another artist we played, TiRon, summed it up the nicest at the end of his verse on the show:

“thinkin’ too much…enjoy the moment.”

Playboy Tre ft. Lil Jon – Ready Go (video)

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

New visuals from Playboy Tre for all my alcoholics.  Honestly, I’ve never seen the appeal (to liquor…not Tre, he’s the homey!).  But yeah, what is it about reality that drives people to alter it so often?  Alcohol doesn’t taste good, it’s expensive, addicting, and unhealthy…but yet virtually everyone I know partakes daily.  I’m good though…and wouldn’t you know it…I can still enjoy music the same.  Shocking!

Playboy Tre – I Don’t Care (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 30th, 2010 by Hyphen

The homeboy Jon Jon is currently down in Los Angeles learning all sorts of incredible film-making techniques to take his productions to the next level, so I think he’s falling back from music videos for a little while.  That said, he’s got a few more in the stash, starting with the debut video for B.o.B’s right hand man, and all around funny guy/dope MC/crazy hook writer, Playboy Tre.  What up fellas?!

Sean Falyon ft. Playboy Tre and Scar – Wonderful Life (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 9th, 2010 by Hyphen

Gotta run to the station for this week’s Sound Session, but I realized that I never posted up the homey Sean’s new video for “Wonderful Life” with Playboy Tre and Scar.  Shout to Tre as well, who was in town on Friday for the B.o.B/Lupe tour.  Good times…

It’s almost crazy to think that B.o.B hasn’t even dropped an official album yet. Fortunately that day is just a few months away, and until then we have this to hold us over. Alongside DJ Drama & DJ Sense he gives us the May25th mixtape. With guest appearances by J. Cole, fellow ’09 classmate Asher Roth, and more as well as production by Alchemist and Kanye this tape is sure to get a few plays on your iTunes.

B.o.B – Put Me On (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 9th, 2009 by Hyphen

Bobby Ray flips the classic Tribe track for his edition of the Reebok Classic series and absolutely murders the hook.  Super catchy.  Shout to the Cornerstone folks, B Rich, Tre, and TJ…dope job fellas.

B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray & Who The F#*k is B.o.B

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on June 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

I’ve been waiting for this mixtape for a minute, and not only did it drop, but TJ, B Rich, Bobby Ray, Tre, and the crew released it in the always clutch “No DJ” format.  It pains me as a DJ to say this, but 99% of time when a DJ is involved with a project with new material these days, it’s a detriment.  If you really want a DJ on your tape, just have him (or her…hi ladies) mix it cohesively and don’t let them get on the mic.  You can download my old tape with Amen if you’re curious to see how a DJ can actually help the project.  Shocking, I know.

Anyway, enough ranting.  Peep B.o.B’s new tape where he continues to bend genres and explore his Bobby Ray side.  This dude might be the most musically gifted of all the ‘new’ MC’s and he’s certainly one of my favorite artists right now.

Download here.

As a bonus, they also re-released B.o.B’s tape from last year without the DJ’s.  Grab that as well if you’ve been sleeping!

Playboy Tre – Liquor Store Mascot (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on April 25th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homey Playboy Tre just dropped his new mixtape, Liquor Store Mascot, as a free download for y’all.  If you’ve been sleeping, Tre rolls with B.o.B and the two work together on pretty much all those crazy hooks Bobby Ray has been singing.  Plus, Seattle folks should know him as one half of the Bona Brothers with Sonny Bonoho.   Download the tape and peep his appearance on Sound Session with B.o.B from a while back…

B.o.B. – Lonely People (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 26th, 2009 by Hyphen

(I-I-I-I seen him! © Halfbaked)

Fresh off releasing the dope video for “I’ll Be In The Sky” (currently my jam), Bobby Ray is back with some more visuals for “Lonely People.”  All my fellow antisocial folks out there understand how this jawn sums up why I always turn down those offers to hit the clubs.  No thanks, I’m goooood.

Shout to Bob, Tre, Rich, & TJ…y’all are killing it right now.  2009 is going to be huge.
