Sound Session #364 (6-3-12)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on June 6th, 2012 by Hyphen

On this week’s SNSS, we brought back one half of Grammy Award winning, multi-platinum production group, Tha Bizness, and Henny brought Dow Jones with him this time to complete the crew.  A few days prior, J. Moore and I had the pleasure of appearing on their panel about “How The Music Industry Really Works In 2012” alongside Jake One, Macklemore, BBoy (Two In The Shirts clothing), Sermon’s Domain, Miss Casey Carter, Eddie Francis, and the Sacramento Kings’ starting point guard, Isaiah Thomas.  We had a great discussion and I can’t wait until Henny & Dow do it again next year, even bigger.  Peep Sermon’s recap here.  Much respect to everyone involved!

We were also joined in studio by one of our favorite producers, Marcus D, who  just released his new Melancholy Hopeful album with appearances by Substantial, One Be Lo, Luck One, Choklate, Cise Star, Funky DL, and more.  Cop it here!

PROPS! also came through to debut his new track with Stalley (produced by Vitamin D) and give out some tickets to their show next week, alongside Miss Casey Carter and Chikara (from Rock Paper Scissors).  Stalley will be doing an in-store appearance at RPS at 3pm on the 10th before their show, so check that out and grab an autograph from one of MMG’s finest.

On top of all that, we played joints.  New music from 50, Ab-Soul, Meek Mill, Drake, Big Boi, Rashad, Curren$y, Big K.R.I.T., and more, plus we world premiered a new cut from Jimi 84 (formerly known as Yonas Michael, who is formerly Y-O from U-N-I).  Super dope record.  Enjoy the show!

Parker ft. BJ The Chicago Kid – Still Parker Brothaz (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 4th, 2010 by Hyphen

Parker (formerly known as Eclipse), aka one half of the Parker Brothaz, might just have one of my favorite records from the NW here in 2010.  We played this joint on SNSS a while back and Tha Bizness have just released some visuals for it this past week.  The beauty of this track is the simplicity: dope beat, good hook, and heartfelt rhymes.  Shout to Stretch, hope he gets out soon.  And shout to my city too, we’re filthy.

Parker – Sky Music (video)

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Music Videos on November 20th, 2010 by Hyphen

It’s great to see the homey Clipse doing big things with the whole Bizness/Kuddie Fresh crew.  I wish Stretch could be out there enjoying their success too, but hopefully he’ll get out soon.  Keep up the great work fellas…making Seattle proud.

And not to put him on blast (ok maybe a little), but mainly because this reminds me of the good ol’ days, peep a classic SNSS moment:

Kuddie Fresh – Music N Flight (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on April 20th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homey Kuddie Fresh stopped by Sound Session last night and it happened to be great timing because he just dropped a real dope instrumental project called Music N Flight.  If you aren’t up on the slaps from the first ever Red Bull Big Tune Champion, stop sleeping.  After getting the official stamp of approval from Henny and Dow by signing on with Tha Bizness, it’s only a matter of time before Kuddie gets the nationwide exposure he’s due.

Download here (or here), and be sure to peep Kuddie’s blog too.

Tha Bizness walk you through My President Is Black

Posted in Artists, Politics, Videos on February 19th, 2009 by Hyphen

As a new owner of a sparkling MacBook Pro, I was definitely curious to see Henny and Dow Jones break down the making of Jeezy’s “My President Is Black” joint using Logic.  I’m not a huge fan of this song, mainly because Jeezy’s lyrics just come off so ridiculous.  I mean…even more than usual.  Hearing him try to be half-political, half-Jeezy is just odd.  “My president is black!  My Lambo’s blue.”  Hmmmm.

Can someone CC Allah on this post for me though?
