Well troopers it appears as if “DO OR DIE 2″ will be out sooner than later…AZ hooks up with Buckwild for a round of goodness (My Niggas).
Awww yeah, this is that shit..
Former Rhyme Syndicate repper DIVINE STYLER recently caught up with the good peoples over at BLACK OTHER for a glimpse into his mind frame….It’s not often that he opens up to the public in a interview format so consider yourself blessed..
9: Def Mask is the name of the new LP? What brought that title about and how has the newer music been received so far? Do you think any of this set will surprise fans of the older material?
As you know Def was a term somewhat like dope but before the crack era which embodied, amazing, mystic, fly, innovative. A mask traditionally is used for drama on a stage to portray various characters in a play.
So the Mask aspect lends itself to the masking of the original source creating a multitude of contradiction through multiple faces and paradoxes in the individual thats playing the role in the drama.
For me it’s an observation as to where we are as individuals and a collective. I’m not expressing anything new. It’s been written about for eons throughout various forms of literature from people like Marcus
Aurelius to Carl Jung. It’s just my take on it. My interpretation lends itself to a more Dystopian/ Orwellian view, being that society is now being driven so much by technology and this group mind drone type
pathos that no one seems to be aware of is going on. With Defmask, I’m the mask wearer narrating the Dystopian drama of the id, ego & super ego.
You know it’s going to be a glorious day when you get blessed with footage of 45 King manhandling the decks for over an hour….
Do the right thing and tune in!

We visited legendary hip-hop producer & 7″ encyclopedia, The 45 King, at his home in New Jersey for an extended DJ set. This guy has produced some of the biggest hip-hop tracks of the past 25 years (Stan, Hard Knock Life, The 900 Number) so it was a stand-up pleasure for him to grace us with an exclusive mix”.
MF GRIMM & myself were the special guest on the latest episode of “BEATS, RHYMES & LIFE” with DJ Cellus out in Florida….For 30 minutes we talk about our undying commitment to this artform, Comic-Con, our history, GMV1&2, and of course the soon to be released party crasher GMV#3…

I’m eager to hear the CORMEGA & LARGE PRO collabo album “Mega Philosophy” when it drops in a week..He recently sat down with the dudes over at AMBROSIA FOR HEADS for a heavy Q&A session that will hold your attention…
“Ambrosia For Heads: Over the years I’ve watched so many people quote that first verse of “The Saga.” That’s one people might have tattooed: “I grew away from people I grew with…” Your verses on loyalty supersede everything else within your catalog. You do that again on “A New Day Begins,” saying, “I weigh my mans like grams, understanding there are losses when you measure weight”…
Cormega: Loyalty is very important—in everything that you do, in every aspect of life, loyalty is essential. When you’re a generous person, you definitely need loyalty, ‘cause people will use you like a sponge. Like, right now, I have a show in New York on July 21st, my album release party. I know what’s gonna happen. The day of the show, a bunch of people that I’m cool with—but that don’t contact me much—they’re gonna call me or they’re gonna be outside, getting somebody in the club, “Yo, tell ‘Mega I’m out here.” So there’s gonna be all these people trying to get in free—who probably didn’t buy my album, but just [wants]. They want, but they don’t want to give. On this album, I’m not doing that. I have friends that live in California that bought tickets to fly to New York City to come from my show, Connecticut friends who are driving…but there are local people who will burn my phone down so they can get in for free.
My first contract that I got with Koch Records was the fuckery of all fuckeries. It was initiated by the guy (Bob Perry) that I helped get the job at Koch. The [same] guy who used to work at Landspeed [Records]—I’m the one who made Landspeed pop. Landspeed made noise prior to me, but it wasn’t loud noise. A fart is noise, but it’s not a gunshot. I fuckin’ carried Landspeed and took it to a whole ‘notha level, got certain people in position—that’s loyalty right there. And I stayed on Landspeed. The Realness? I did not have to be on Landspeed. I had Interscope callin’ me, I had TVT with a contract—TVT had a lot of money! They had Lil Jon. I had numerous labels wanting to sign me, but I stayed with Landspeed. That was loyalty. But how was my loyalty rewarded? I got a fuck-you-deal when I signed with Koch by the same person I was working with at Landspeed”.
I’m a little late on this, but better late than never…BAG-O & EDDIE CHEEBA are the special guest on the latest episode of “NO IDEA’S ORIGINAL” – you will be hard-pressed to find any interview of these two on the net, so consider this a blessing troopers….BLAM,BLAM..
