Type – Man Crush (Nohomo) (video)

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Music Videos on January 1st, 2010 by Hyphen

Type tried to warn y’all…not for the faint of heart, or the uptight.

This is off Type’s Amateur Hour album and was directed by Griff J and Craig Packard, who are consistently dropping some dope visuals for a bunch of Seattle artists.  Should be fun to see what they do in 2010.

2 Guys, 1 Man Crush

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Music Videos on December 4th, 2009 by Hyphen

Type (aka, Jeff from my middle school days) is about to drop the video for his newest batch of hilarity, “Man Crush,” but before it’s released at the end of the month, he’s releasing this teaser.  Peep the video to see reactions from some of the dopest folks around town, including yours truly, as we watch the clip for the first time.  It’s so wrong, it’s right.

And if you’ve never seen it, here’s the video for Type & Grieves’ “My Girlfriend Beats Me” from a few years back.  I make another cameo in this one too hahah:

Louis Logic on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on May 30th, 2009 by Hyphen

Having been on the airwaves for almost a decade now, sometimes it’s easy to get stuck in the routine and lose some of the excitement that got me into this industry in the first place.  While it’s fun to interview hip-hop’s next generation and meet all the up and comers, there’s nothing better than chopping it up with someone who I listened to back in “the good ol’ days.”

When I got to college in 2000 and discovered the magnificence that was Napster + a T1 connection, I downloaded just about every ‘underground’ track I could find.  Among those gems was Louis Logic’s Music To Drink By compilation, which I definitely consider a personal classic (even though I was never a drinker…shrug).  Since then, Lou’s gone on to release more great projects, many of which have fallen a bit under the radar.  With the upcoming release of his Spork Kills surf-pop meets hip-hop hybrid album, Beaches Love Us, he’s about to burst back on the scene with more noise than ever.  Don’t believe me?  Peep the video for the first single, “Night Of The Hip ‘N Dead”:

A little while back, Lou came through Sound Session to talk all about the early 2000’s underground scene, his work with the Demigodz, his musical and personal evolution, his time as roommates with Travis from Gym Class Heroes, why Spork Kills is his best and most important work to date, and much more.  Do yourself a favor and check out this in-depth interview with one of hip-hop’s best lyricists:

Shout to my dude Type for helping bring Louis through the show…now he’s a homey from the real “good ol’ days,” all the way back in middle school.  What up Jeff!
