Re:generations (Documentary Trailer)

Cool documentary where 5 DJs from different backgrounds are asked to study, understand, and later interpolate a musical different than their the one they are used to performing. Initially, it was DJ Premier in this that caught my attention but the overall concept looks cool.

Exhibit C Decoded

Via RHHH, noted hip-hop journalist ToureX explains the depth and linear story within Jay Electronica’s “Exhibit C” – one of my fav songs of the last 10 years and current ringtone. A brilliant piece of writing from both Jay & Toure. I learned a few things that I thought I already knew.

Golden Age – Cassette Culture

Cassette Culture (a mixtape) Cover Art

 

My good friend and co-owner of Namu, Malicious Lee, along with Do-Dat make up Golden Age. In keeping with the spirit of their group’s name, the duo recreate the nostalgia of the 90s hip-hop or as they call it “Cassette Culture”.  Do Dat spits over great beats in the mixtape, some very familair to the ears of true hip-hop heads.

 

Download: Golden Age – Cassette Culture

 

We’ll be celebrating the release of the mixtape on Sept. 3oth at Namu with a performance by Golden Age and special appearance of yours truly.

The Tanning of America

In promotion of his new book, former punching bag of Diddy and current brand consultant, Steve Stoute partnered with the Huffington post to create a video series called “The Tanning of America”. The book and vid series focus on hip-hop’s influence on mainstream culture and consumerism. Pretty big deal to have Jay, Pharrell, Jimmy Iovine and Gaga on the same vid. Check this link for an excerpt. Thanks Riq for the post.

Rick Perry & Superman

First seen at the homie Khal’s “RTD“, I felt inclined to post this after watching a few of the GOP debates. Not sure what’s gonna happen in 2012 but Jay Smooth sure exposes this dude with great humor and political relevance.

Stevie singing Michael

DJ Spinna has kept the tribute to Stevie Wonder for the last 6 years in NYC, SF, and LA. On Sept 10, 2011, Stevie himself surprised the guests of the “Wonder-full” party by showing up on stage with Spinna. You can imagine the pandemonium. While on stage, Stevie requested some MJ and Spinna accommodated with the “Rock With You” instrumental. History followed. to see his walk-on stage, look after the jump.
