” On The Books “

Picture 2

For the longest time I refrained from setting up a Facebook account or a Twitter spot…

WHY ?

I already have HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD which has been up and running for almost 8 years straight, also I couldn’t help but notice that most “social networks” are just a forum for beef, gossip, negativity, and other various forms of fuckery and self-indulgence…

But now we (MF GRIMM & I) are on the verge of releasing the final installment in the GMV series (The Phoenix Program) so it’s only right that I branch out and connect with the “people” a little bit more….If you want to build on MUSIC, look me up on the “book”, but if you just want to rant and rave and hit me over the head with all types of extras – you probably wont get a response back from me, with all due respect..

HAHAHA….

Please do not get it twisted though – HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD is the main hub for the kid….Matter of fact I plan on posting more shit now that Summer has come to a close so make sure you check in on the daily famo….

” Renegades Of Rhythm Tour “

Picture 1

Even though CUT CHEMIST & DJ SHADOW’s musical direction in recent years wasn’t necessarily my cup of tea, I still am looking forward to catching one of their spot dates for the RENEGADES OF RHYTHM tour when they slide through my area…

“Cut Chemist says: Take a peak into the exclusive material from hip-hop pioneer DJ Afrika Bambaataa. Mix By Jimmy features recordings Bambaataa had pressed to acetate for spinning live at shows in the late ’70s and early ’80s. This mix includes entirely unreleased material along with demo versions of hits like “Looking For The Perfect Beat,” “Renegades of Funk” and “Planet Rock.” Listen and take a trip through the deepest part of the most important music collection of our time”.

” Stepping Out “

WHEW-

COP HERE…

” Let The Beats Rock “

Picture 8

Sometimes just for fun I will scour all over the net looking for beat tapes that can hold my interest for five full minutes….To be honest most of the time that I try this little experiment I end up empty handed and left baffled by how hard it is to find a instrumental project that will stick to my ribs….

To each his own but I’m tired of hearing a million DILLA clones, suspect chops, sample kit kicks and snares, flimsy synths, overused breaks, and NO scratches whatsoever on your “beat tapes”…..

One of the major problems with SOME of these cats is that they have no DJ’ing background…Unless your extremely musically talented I just do not understand Hip Hop producers that think they can excel in crafting beats when they do not approach it from a DJ standpoint….

What’s your prerequisite ?

If you have DJ’ed for a substantial amount of time you automatically know what combinations belong together and which ones do not….If you have rocked a crowd behind those decks you are in tune to certain frequencies that move the people..

Anyway, that dude PAUL NICE recently uploaded the “Biscuits” beat project on his Bandcamp page…Check in and catch a zone (Via-OTTN).

” Superstonic Sound “

Picture 3

DON LETTS has inspired me in a myriad of ways..

His sheer creativity and open mindedness is amazing on so many levels, but one of the things that I have learned from his “living example”, is that you can grow older and still maintain the principles you had as a youth without compromising whatsoever…

Check out the “Superstonic Sound” documentary that is based on his life and catch a jewel or two…

” 2014 : The Year Of Determination “

Picture 1

“SCARS AND MEMORIES, MEMORIES AND SCARS / I LOOK UP IN THE SKY AND I WONDER WHERE YOU ARE”…

Life is crazy sometimes….

Just when you think that you have figured everything out, life has a way of throwing you periodic curve balls that will absolutely baffle you…A dear childhood friend of mine was recently killed in a senseless act of violence that has left his friends, family and loved ones completely and thoroughly stunned to the core…

How can we live in a world where another humans life is not valued at all whatsoever ?

As I reminisce on my friend I try my hardest to think of the good times, the dreams, the optimistic outlook we both had about life….It’s such a tragic shame..

I know in my heart he would want me to continue on my path without fear, prejudice, malice, and self-destruction – so that’s what I’m going to do for you my brother without a fraction of a doubt…I am committed to honoring your name and our bond with pure DETERMINATION…

RIP – JONZ GLK/MJM……..WE ARE GOING TO MISS YOU BROTHER.

” Good Morning Vietnam # 3 “

Picture 9

*Due to the fact that GRIMM & I put a tremendous amount of time and energy into the making of GMV 3 – I’m going to take a week long hiatus from HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD…Regular posting will resume next Monday.

So where do I begin?

This is the final installment in the GMV series…On the first two joints we hit you with multiple angles and frequencies, but in my humble opinion part three raises the stakes and pushes the suckers straight off the motherfucking cliff without a parachute..

I’m not going to hit you with a bunch of fancy adjectives and extras…If you still believe in the power of hardcore Hip Hop you already know what it is….Salute to everyone out there that has supported these releases (I SEE YOU)..

” Nonce Beats : Vol. 1 “

Picture 7

Former NONCE member SACH has a Bandcamp page that you should peep while your floating around in cyberspace cuzzo….The first thing that caught my eye was the strictly instrumental project entitled “Nonce Beats”…

RIP YUSEF AFLOAT…

“The tone, Akai S900 and S950 both came with a tone to test the audio output, we took that tone and made it into all the sounds we dreamed of. Going through the crates, putting it all together with my brother, Those times are forever etched in my mind”.

PEEP…

” Saturday Check In “

Picture 5

Straight from Buffalo, NY comes this mix from DJ CUTLER…

“It is with great pleasure that I share with you all the first of a semi-chronological, multi-volume mix series we will be releasing throughout the year exploring some of our favorite hip hop music of 1994. Each volume will be physically available for purchase on cassette later in the year, please hit me up if you’re interested in copping one. Mind you, each volume is separated into two sections, side A and side B–be sure to download both”.

” Midweek Morale “

Picture 2

TI4TH is a blog that is filled to the rim with independent releases from the late 80’s-mid 90’s…I highly recommend spending some quality time on the site if your on the hunt for some under the radar Hip Hop treats. For instance, you will spot rare material like this SHAMEN collection (Pep Love & Jaybiz) that never received an official release…

” Let The Beats Rock “

Picture 1

That wild and crazy guy KUTMASTA KURT has a bandcamp page that is flooded with all types of goodies….This early 90’s beat tape was one of the offerings that caught my immediate attention…

PEEP…

” New Shit On Deck “

Picture 5

Anybody that shouts out TENOR SAW in 2014 gets a salute from me on GP….Just last week I posted one of my favorite joints from SINGAPORE KANE, now he makes his return with “Pull It Up” with production from PURPOSE…

Be on the lookout for his upcoming album “Waves & Shades” due out soon…
