Sound Session #530 (8/9/15)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on August 24th, 2015 by Hyphen


These are the shows you hate and you never forget.  We lost an incredible MC a few weeks ago and in tribute to Ruck aka Sean Price, we kicked off SNSS #530 with almost an hour of his classics.  While it felt great to relive all those verses and yell out “P!!!!” accordingly, it’s depressing to know that his newest release (Songs In The Key Of Price, cop it now!) is his last.  43 is way, way, way too young.  We need to ensure that our vets are taking care of themselves as they get older, especially because this lifestyle isn’t really conducive to healthy living.  RIP to a legend, one of the nastiest to ever pick up the mic, and condolences to our Duck Down fam.

In addition to our tribute to Ruck, we ran some new records from BJ The Chicago Kid, Dr. Dre, Method Man, Anik Khan, Macklemore, Warren G, Drake, Duckwrth, and more.  Local artist Huey P also dropped by to debut his new record, “206 / 253,” with Wale.

Chewey lets the camera tag along as he hangs out with Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, and Roc Marciano at Rock The Bells: San Francisco. Just an every day thing for the Axe.

Random Axe – Random Call (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 14th, 2011 by Hyphen

There’s nothing like the awkward pause during the chorus when I play the clean edit for “Random Call” on SNSS.  Sean, Guilty, and Black are currently dominating my car’s stereo, when I’m not being overwhelmed by bass from Sirius/XM.

Shout to Todd Angkasuwan on the visuals as well.  Great stuff.

Sean Price – Figure Four (video)

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

Some visuals for one of the dope freestyles off Kimbo Price.  Every time we use this beat on Sound Session, people ask what it is.  Have you forgotten this classic from Pace Won?

Sean Price ft. Skyzoo & Torae – Duck Down (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 13th, 2010 by Hyphen

One of my favorite songs off Sean P’s Kimbo Slice tape gets the video treatment as part of Court Dunn & NahRight’s One Shot series. Nice little concept and they executed it’s well. The verses are complete fire too. All 3 mc’s kill it, but Sean really bodies the track. Calling out “white women who listen to Lyfe Jennings” was the clincher.

Heltah Skeltah – Ruck and Roll (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

Hahahah, Ruck and Rock are having too much fun these days.  Here’s their description of the newest video of D.I.R.T.:

Y’all might be gettin’ a little tired of all that Hip-Hop so we’re on that Rock ish (no pun) on this one. You might know them as the Boot Camp BK duo Ruck and Rock, or Heltah Skeltah, but here they assume the group name Special Education (consisting of members: Johny Rambo, Monstaman, Guitarded, unamed, and “Death to cabs in New Jersey”) for their latest vid “Ruck N Roll.” The video was directed by Rik Cordero and the song is off of Heltah Skeltah’s upcoming album D.I.R.T. (Da Incredible Rap Team) in stores 9/30.

Cop that!  Shout to my Duckdown fam.

Tash sighting!

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on July 23rd, 2008 by Hyphen

One of my favorite MC’s of all time, Catashtrophe, was spotted rhyming with J-Ro, E-Swift, and Heltah Skeltah somewhere, but I’m too lazy to find out all the details.  I assume this is courtesy of, so perhaps they’ll have the details.  Wait, a session broke out and they rapped over “Tried By 12“?  Didn’t see that coming…naht.

Bonus video of Tha Liks performing “Only When I’m Drunk” after the jump.  How did a group called Tha Alkaholiks become one of my favorite groups when I don’t even drink?  Oh yeah, they make dope ish.  I need some new Tash in my life ASAP.
