Jaden Smith continues to impress me with his music. It's not just the lyrical wordplay & flow that's impressing me with each single or project he releases, but often times its the type of soundscapes he chooses to use. One very important element to a good emcee is being able to choose the right beats to convey the mood of the song you're trying to create. It was a pleasant surprise for me to see that the son of Will & Jada collaborated with very dope producer TA-KU who's music & production I've been following for quite some time now. Peep this #BeastMode mix that Jaden & Ta-Ku put together & if you weren't already impressed, this should definitely do it for you. Artwork via samuelburgessjohnson.com/
Virginia producer Nottz is one of my favorite beatsmith's crafting quality hip hop music. Whenever I see a song produced by him I usually listen to it right away because I just KNOW it's going to be some authentic hot ish! This track record dictates that urgency. Surprisingly most of the general public may not be aware of just how deep his catalog is & I'm sort of surprised more in the media haven't done more interviews with him in the past. The people over at DrumBroker, Scratch Magazine, & RawKoncept got together for this 'Behind The Beats' series with the focus on the grossly underrated music producer. Check it out above....
What's up beautiful people?! Thanks for rocking with me! I've been busy these past few weeks. I've produced a couple tracks for a movie soundtrack and I'm currently in the process of scoring a stage play.
I've done so much work that I've often forgotten records that I've worked on. The time frame between production, placement, and release can be unpredictable.

The Cali emcee Fashawn releases a brand new video to prep fans for the upcoming release of his upcoming EP with Alchemist called "FASH-ionably Late" that's due December 18th. The single & video features Evidence who also directed the clip. Fashawn is 'FASH-ionably late' in finishing 2014 strong but he's gearing up for an even better 2015 now that he's signed to Nas under the Mass Appeal Records label where he'll release his next full-lenth project entitled 'The Ecology'.
