Just last year this very good friend of mine was murdered. He was a good friend and actually my very first client. First client to buy beats and pay for studio time. He also came up with the name 37Hundred for the studio. GET FAMILIAR!
I thought I pay tribute to Roc Raida by posting this video of his New York crew the X-Men versus Bay Area's own Invisible Skratch Piklz. This video was like my first dose of East and West beef. X-Men were dope at jugglin' and ISP was dope at skratching. Till this day I still don't know who won this battle.
I was a big fan of DJ Battles and this right here, this right here. Had me trippin!
I met Barnone up the block from my house at an independent barbershop/clothing store/music etc etc. in South City about 2 years ago. I was introduced by a good friend and off top he was interested in checkin out the lab. We met up maybe a week later and I played him some beats and it was a wrap after that. We've been coo' since! Here is his latest video, "Da Gig":
Who is Alexander Spit? I asked myself the same question after hearing his name from credible sources. We met for the first time at 37Hundred 2 months ago. He laid a verse for one of Enoch's upcoming projects over one of my beats. We spoke about music and why I should go to BAPC and shit on everyone at the morning battle for not qualifying. Funny thing, I qualified! They were just late. Dude is real down to earth and talented. We need to link more often. Here is his latest off his album, "Open 24hrs":
I feel this song should not be slept on for a number of reasons. #1 because its the truth! Not the average Fabby that everyone knows. So, I composed this video myself with excerpts from ScreamTV and Zion I & Grouch's "Hit'em" video. Hope you enjoy!
What a lot of you may not know is that I got my start in this rap game back in '98. My friends and I formed the group; ELEMNOP. We put out about 5 albums digitally before itunes existed, handed out thousands of CD's, been on television, performed numerous times at Bill Ghrams "The Fillmore", hosted and threw our own parties, held open mics etc, etc.
Now, that were well acquainted again, I would like to introduce to you one of my bestfriends in the group; BEETIKI!
Here is Eyeasage's first single off her debut album "Rocky Rivera". As I recall, this was the first song we rocked up at 37Hundred. Shout out to 6Fingers on the beat! She's come a long way, trust! Enjoy.
