March 2012 "Last Saturday" Dex Beats x Team Backpack



I catch up with team backpack every so often, trust I'm an avid viewer. I completely respect the young hip hop community in the Bay Area and have to tip my hat off to Team Backpack curators again for providing such a positive outlet for the community. I used to see so many ciphers outside clubs, at malls, bus stops, coffee shops, on Haight St., etc. Its great to see it exposed to a greater audience, even though I'm sure half the crowd are aspiring emcee's as well. COME THRU this Saturday, March 31'st, I'll be in attendance to witness my own beats, 2 at that, get annihilated by artist I have yet to work with. $5 TICKETS

Day with Dash: Philippines (Day 2)



My hat is tipped and a major 3rd World Hustle Salute to Mike Dash E for putting on for the Philippines. I've always had the utmost respect for the youngblood the day I seen him at one of my own shows backstage hustling his tapes, maybe 5 years ago. This video took me back home and definitely reminded me of the culture shock and emotions running thru my body having to witness the hard times in the Philippines. Salute fam!

Team Backpack presents "Last Saturday"

ZION I "Livity" Mixtape (DOWNLOAD)



In effort to help promote the new Zion I album, "Shadow Boxing" they release a REAL mixtape, meaning you can't skip thru records. Download and get that dose. Also, I had the pleasure to work with Zumbi the other night. Hopefully, this year we can make a collaboration happen.

J Billion "Not Guilty"



Oh the irony to this song! Lol. Produced by the homies of the Risky Biz Crew, "Not Guilty" from J Billion's next mixtape "Above the Rim".

REL "Out of View" (DOWNLOAD)

A very good friend of mine and fellow producer, REL released his new instrumental album entitled "Out of View". As always it has this very lo-fi chill sound, but in comparison to some of his later work the drums were more dirty and filtered much like "Herringbone" something I guess I'm really used to from the Bay Area producer. Nonetheless, a very clean mix. I wonder if @Aljieh of SWTBRDS had anything to do with that. It's a great download and I encourage all my smokers and lovers of hip hop music to DOWNLOAD it.

Joey BADA$$ x Capital STEEZ "Survival Tactics"



This kid is is too ill. There is no doubt in my mind that Brooklyn breeds killer talent. On top of all that, I couldn't help but go wild about Joey using Styles of Beyond's "Survival Tactics" instrumental. Someone please tell me how the hell a 17 year old emcee got a hold of the "Survival Tactics" instrumental. Thats fuckin' crazy! WTF!

"17 year old Brooklyn native Joey BadA$$ debuts his video for "Survival Tactics" the first release off his solo Project "1999" slated to drop late march 2012. The song features fellow Brooklyn based artist Capital STEEZ . Joey along with Steez are original memebers of the BK based movement Pro.Era (Progressive Era: http://proera.tumblr.com/). The project is being released by SOW the brainchild of Cinematic Music Group and Creative Control.tv"

Mike Dash E "Why they call me Dash" (prod. Dex Beats)



You know your music moves and inspires when your production is used to express such an honest and real side of an artist most people don't know much about. I'm sure Mike's trip to the Philippines means just as much as I am honored to have my production paired with this powerful visual. Shout out Miggy Enriquez & JB Balingit for capturing such a momentous event. Salute! 3rd World Hustle! Get Familiar!
