Murs at the Democratic Convention (big ups to Jake One!)

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews on August 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

All Hip-Hop caught up with Murs at the Democratic National Convention for a quick interview.  Aside from talking a little politics and imploring y’all to vote, he answers one of the weirdest questions I’ve ever heard by bigging up Seattle’s own Jake One.  Murs over “Rock KoKaine Flow”?  I’d love to hear it.  Better yet, I’d love to see Murs and Jake link up for a track or two…

The homey Substantial has been making crazy moves lately with his single, “It’s You (I Think),” off his Sacrifice album, and now he needs your help to keep the momentum going.  The video is one of five finalists in a MTVu contest, where the winner goes into regular rotation on the station.  It’s real easy to vote, and Stan deserves your support so get to it and vote as many times as you’d like!


2) Click VOTE next to Substantial’s “It’s You” video
4) Repeat steps 2-3 all as many times as you’d like!

It’s just that simple folks.  If you don’t remember it from all the spins on Sound Session, listen to the song again and watch the video:

(these are all real stories in the verses btw)

Kanye West doesn’t care about wack people

This is why Barack doesn’t take any money from PAC’s or lobbyists.  Rather than be accountable to big business, he’ll be accountable to us.  Vote.
