97th Mixtape Feature: J. Bizness and Trek Life

April 10, 2010 Leave a comment

This EP is the culmination of 5+ years of chemistry between the West Covina, CA MC Trek Life and up & coming producer J. Bizness from Ontario, CA. The music contained within is a combination of raw West Coast edge with classic Hip-Hop soul.

J. Bizness, in collaboration with FWMJ/Rappers I Know, also has created an EP series featuring artists over his production. The first in the series showcases Richard Wright over Bizness’ production.

First off, we welcome you all to the 3P Series. The term “3P” is a play on the term “EP” which stands for “extended play”. An EP is generally 6-8 total tracks and is usually just a sample of what is to come from a particular artist. For promotional purposes, it was decided that 3 tracks were just enough to solicit a positive response from the audience and hopefully keep them interested in future releases from the particular artists.

Wordspit x McDonalds x Dollar Van Demos

April 8, 2010 Leave a comment

In a previous post, I wrote about Joya Bravo, Wordspit and their commercials with McDonalds and Dollar Van Demos, but that was only the behind-the-scenes video. There’s a chance that you may have seen Joya Bravo’s spot in the last couple of months and now it’s Wordspit’s turn for national exposure.

96th Mixtape Feature: T. Shirt

April 7, 2010 Leave a comment

There’s nothing better than making something with your friends. Sometimes, I just gotta forget about the outside world listening in and remember who I really made this for first and foremost. When I’ve rapped for myself in the past I never got the kind of response I wanted.. it’s only when I rap for us.. when I take how I feel, what Darvin goes through, Dred, how Ronin’s felt, my brothers.. I’m just trying to tell our story.. and I’m just trying to get it right.. inspire us. I think J Cole said it best, “My story ain’t the only one I’m trying to tell” – that shit just rang so true to me. We are the tan-face children. We are the pioneers. Maybe you have to know all of us to understand.. maybe it gives you a familiar feeling.

95th Mixtape Feature: TAIS

April 2, 2010 Leave a comment

“It seems like nowadays the most complex ideas are the simplest, yet ‘keeping it simple’ the hardest thing to do.”

Simplicity battles complexity in TAIS‘ most recent release in which he emphasizes the concept of “simple”, but don’t expect to find half-witted lyricism from this Sacramento artist. There’s no need to be intimidated by his approach because he is human just like the rest of us.¬†As you make your way through the mixtape, a relatable element is present in his music, meaning it won’t be too hard to feel his music. The truth can be found if one is willing to search and luckily for you, you won’t have to look too far.
