Rittz ft. Yelawolf – Sleep At Night (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 18th, 2012 by Hyphen

White rappers be having theeeeeeeeeee worst relationships with women ever.  I need at least one of them to start rapping about their beautiful queen and happy life.  That won’t happen here, but the results are still dope.  Yelawolf is underrated on hooks too…

Eminem, Slaughterhouse, & Yelawolf – BET Cypher (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on October 15th, 2011 by Hyphen

Like any sane individual, I didn’t watch the BET Awards and I knew that anything worth seeing would pop up online later.  Sure enough, the video that had Twitter going crazy and everyone professing their love for Eminem is here in all its explicit glory.

Em’s verse is bananas and it’s funny to hear him rhyme over East Flatbush Project’s “Tried By 12” beat almost 15 years after he was killing the Rap Olympics over similar records, but like any moment that gets SO much hype…I just instinctively have a little bit of a “meh” reaction.  Don’t get me wrong, every rapper here is dope and spits crazy, but there’s just so many bars upon bars upon bars upon bars for me.  I would have spazzed about this in 2000, but now, it’s cool…plus, it’s a great look for lyrics to actually be highlighted on a network like BET.

Well done 2.0 Boys.

Yelawolf – Daddy’s Lambo (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 11th, 2011 by Hyphen

Aside from the realization that Drama Beats from Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory can actually make some slaps, the most surprising thing about this song/video is that Lamborghini’s actually require a key.  I thought we were all on team #pushtostart these days, no?

Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Skylar Grey, & Lil B at the MTVu Woodie Awards

Posted in Interviews, Sound Session on March 23rd, 2011 by Hyphen

If you follow me on Twitter (and if you don’t, you should…#humblebrag), you know that I was down at SXSW last week in lovely Austin, Texas. The first night that I arrived, the staff at MTV hooked up a pass for the MTVu Woodie Awards and I got my first experience on a red carpet. Aside from just enjoying the overall environment, I was able to chop it up with everyone who walked by. I grabbed a couple quick videos for y’all with Wiz, Yelawolf, Skylar Grey, and Lil B. Enjoy.

Yelawolf on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on December 1st, 2010 by Hyphen

The same day that I chopped it up with Wiz Khalifa, his co-star for the Waken Baken Tour, Yelawolf, stopped by the studio to kick it as well.  We discussed his official debut album Trunk Muzik 0-60, how it continues where his last mixtape left off, his nervousness/excitement during the BET Awards Cipher, his history working every odd job imaginable, being homeless in Seattle, and more.

Not only is Wolf a cool, down to Earth dude…but his album and style are both really fresh.  Hip-hop needs his presence and music right now, so do yourself a favor and check out the project if you haven’t already.

If you prefer to just listen to the audio, here you go:

Wiz Khalifa on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session, Videos on October 20th, 2010 by Hyphen

This past weekend, I had a chance to check out the Seattle stop of the Waken Baken tour when it hit the Showbox Sodo.  I’ll be posting up my interview with the opening act, Yelawolf, soon, but I was also able to chop it up with Wiz Khalifa backstage and we recorded this quick interview for y’all.  We discussed the tour, Wiz’ incredible buzz, his experiences in the Pacific Northwest, getting his hometown Pittsburgh Steelers to support “Black and Yellow,” and more.

Shout to Wiz, Will, Artie, and Motti for hooking everything up.  Cop that Kush & Orange Juice if you haven’t already…definitely one of the best projects of the year.  Just wait until the official album drops…
