Q&A With Stockton, CA Based Hip Hop Artist DJ Black

Congratulations DJ Black on your latest EP release “Scorpio Season”. We checked it out and we really enjoyed the fresh new sound & perspective on new Hip Hop coming out of Stockton, California. What motivated you to create this style of music. And where did your moniker originate? I came up in a crazy mix of both hip hop and rock music. My mother set a pretty heavy foundation of grunge and metal for me as a kid and pretty much everyone else i knew was into hip hop. This started me out with a pr...

Roger Troutman I Want to Be Your Man for Throwback Thursday

  Once again, we have arrived at another Thursday which makes up closer to the weekend. My playlists this week consisted of the King album from T.I., Compton by Dr. Dre and Usher’s Raymond vs. Raymond.

Friday Soundtrack Released 25 Years Ago Today

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the Friday soundtrack. Friday is one of my all-time favorite movies. The movie is viewed by many as a classic and definite hood classic. With such an amazing movie, you know that the soundtrack had to be nice. With Ice Cube, one of the greatest rappers overseeing it you know it would be good. The Friday Soundtrack would debut as the top album and remained there for two weeks. Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Cypress Hill, Isley Brothers, Mack 10, Roger Trout...

To Pimp a Butterfly Kendrick Lamar Dropped 5 Years Ago

5 years ago today, Kendrick Lamar released his 3rd album, To Pimp a Butterfly. To Pimp a Butterfly was the follow-up to his classic, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City. As many of you may know, Kendrick Lamar is my favorite new school rapper along with J. Cole. To Pimp a Butterfly went on to sell over a million copies and won a Grammy for Best Rap album. The album received its fair share of praise and criticism. It was ranked as the best album of 2015 by many publications, including Rolling Stone, Billboa...

Afu-Ra – “Urban Chemistry” (Album Review)

This is the 6th full-length album from New York veteran Afu-Ra. His 2000 debut Body of the Life Force is widely considered to be an underground classic & the 2002 follow-up Life Force Radio was pretty solid to me as well. Last time we heard from Afu was in late 2018 with Mazterchef & now, he’s back with Urban Chemistry. The album kicks off with “Unstop”, where Afu links up with Starrlight talking about how untouchable they are over a symphonic instrumental. The next song “Kiss the Pain” with My...

If you’ve got $7500, you can also have an E-mu SP-1200 sampler remake

Also new in 2020 – a remake of the legendary 1987 E-mu SP-1200. Just get ready for some sticker shock, because it’s not just a clone, it’s an actual SP-1200, rebuilt. This one is an extremely, extremely limited edition because it starts with an original working SP-1200. So the price tag is similar to a top-condition refurbished 1200 because that is literally what it is. The new SP-1200 undertaking comes from E-mu Systems co-founder Dave Rossum, so we can think of this as passion project more ...
