Brother Ali – Writer’s Block (video)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Music Videos on January 7th, 2012 by Hyphen

Most Seattle residents know that Ali’s been spending a lot of time out here, mainly to work closely with Jake One on his upcoming album, Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color.  With those two involved, you already know the result is going to be dope.

Awww, no appearance from Jake in the video?  Wack.  Other than that, good stuff from Rik Cordero for one of the best singles of the year.

BK-One interview with Peter Parker

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on September 23rd, 2009 by Hyphen

I remember seeing BK-One mix for Brother Ali damn near a decade ago and I was blown away by how well he complimented Ali’s live show, especially during his solo.  Now he’s prepping the release of his first album and SNSS listeners will know that we’ve been rocking “Here I Am” with Phonte, Ali, and The Grouch real heavy lately.  You need to cop BK’s album on the 6th…[Clinton Sparks] get familiar! [/Clinton]

Shout to the homies Peter and Zeke for sending this through.

Mr. Peter Parker interviews Jake & Free

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on June 2nd, 2009 by Hyphen

While at Rhymesayers’ epic Soundset Festival in Minnesota, the homey Peter Parker linked up with the other homies Jake One & Freeway for a quick chat about their upcoming album, The Stimulus Package.  If you thought White Van Music was a big record for Jake and for Seattle, wait till this one drops.  It’s gonna be a big moment for the merging of the commercial & underground scenes nationwide.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go destroy some folks on the soccer pitch in this lovely 80 degree Seattle weather.  [Jada] ah-HAAAAA [/Kiss]

Jake One ft. Vitamin D, C-Note, Maneak B, & Ish – Home (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 27th, 2009 by Hyphen

Yessir!  It doesn’t get any more 206 than this one.  Big shout to everyone involved in this video, many of which are my favorite folks in this industry/community.  Great to see everyone get some shine and I’m still a little disappointed I wasn’t able to hit up the shoot too.  If I remember right though, I was coaching my 6th grade select squad to some Eastside ass-whooping, so it’s all good.  Would have been nice to get a little U-District/Ravenna repping though hahaha.  The end of this song (“peace out homey!!!”) will always be a great memory, as that soundbite was taken from one of our crazy SNSS callers when Jake was in the studio one night.  Classic.

Special props to Jake, Zia, & Pinder for doing a great job with this clip.  Townbidnassmane.

Murs on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on December 17th, 2008 by Hyphen

(watch part one in HD on HyphenTV)

J. Moore and I recently got the chance to have one of our favorite artists in the game, the one and only Murs, come through Sound Session and kick it with us.  Back when I used to do college radio down in Los Angeles (KSPC what up!), I used to joke about how many people would call in to request Living Legends music.  Seriously, I’d get one every 15 minutes…it was crazy.  They have such an ill following in Cali (and worldwide), and it’s been great to watch Murs build upon that to take his career and brand to a new level.

When we sat down with him, we talked all about his new Murs For President album, why he decided to sign to a major label, his love for No Limit & Cash Money records from the late 90’s, life on the road, politics, and much more.  Be sure to watch both parts of the interview to see why he’s the most authentic rapper you’ll ever find.

Jake One and Brother Ali on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session, Videos on October 27th, 2008 by Hyphen

(watch part one in High-Def on HyphenTV)

Loyal listeners of Sound Session know that the big homey Jake One often drops by the studio to kick it, but we’ve never really done an official interview with him.  With the release of his debut album, White Van Music, a few weeks back, we had to bring in Jake and talk all about it.  Not only did he give us all sorts of behind the scenes stories about the project, but we ran through the entire album on air, joint by joint.

If you haven’t checked out White Van Music, you’re missing out on some of the best beats of the year and guest appearances from Black Milk, MF Doom, Alchemist, Busta Rhymes, Bishop Lamont, M.O.P., Freeway, Posdnuos, Slug, Little Brother, Prodigy, Elzhi, Royce The 5’9″, Young Buck, and many more.  Another guest from the album, Brother Ali, also came through SNSS that night to pay his respects to the latest chapter in Seattle’s rich musical history.

You can watch all the interview segments through part one (above) and part two (below), but make sure you watch them in HD on the HyphenTV Vimeo channel.  If you want the audio of the entire show for the mp3 player or the ride, here you go:
