The PlayList (DJ Jazzy Jeff et. al.) - "1995" feat. Glenn Lewis [Video]

Yeah. It seems only right that DJ Jazzy Jeff's PlayList Retreats bear smooth tasty fruit like this. A taste of the full plate "Chasing Goosebumps." So so dope! The soulful singing of Glenn Lewis over a R&B'd out track. Perfect.

(More on The PlayList after the jump.)


Starting in 2015, DJ Jazzy Jeff has hosted an annual retreat, dubbed Playlist, as a way to facilitate collaborations and spread knowledge between fellow DJs, producers, songwriters, musicians, and vocalists. In 2017, an outgrowth of the retreats developed into Chasing Goosebumps, credited to the Playlist. During a seven-day period at the end of January and beginning of February, Jeff and well over three dozen peers - Stro Elliot, Eric Lau, Kaidi Tatham, Muhsinah, Eric Roberson, Avery Sunshine, and Glenn Lewis among them - created the album, as witnessed by those who caught the sessions' live streams. The result was a connected set of sophisticated modern soul, a bright synthesis of played and programmed components with Lewis serving as the frontperson. Chasing Goosebumps was released digitally in mid-February.

Freshco Shares Memories of Working with The Notorious B.I.G. (Video)

For those who don't know: Freshco (aka Shawn Conrad) is FIRE on a mic! I'll post my all-time fav joint from him after the jump. But for now, take my word if you have no other reason to care. Then click play and consider that Biggie mostly worked with microphone masters back in the day. And he wanted to put something down with Freshco. That ought to tell you something!

But let me tell you something... Freshco has a previously unreleased track featuring himself and the Notorious B.I.G.! However, the lionshare of Freshco's talk is about memories of B.I.G., not that track.

Come back with me to 1993 when Biggie and I met and did some music together. Before the Tupac beef. Before the King of New York.

Kool G Rap Speaks On Mumble Rap, His Album & Tour, And Respect For Sean Price (Video)

I don't think much of mumble rap, I don't think highly of it...so many things that young cats are doing have nothing to do with the roots of where this thing started from.

- Kool G Rap

Ah! This clip might sting a bit. See, Kool G Rap gets around to [more than] inferring that the surge in popularity of "mumble rap" is the listeners' fault! Come on... There is a song called "Peek A Boo"... A cat is out here getting MAJOR check from a song called "Peek A Boo."

Yeah. That's where we are with the rap that the masses love out here today.


(But hey, that new Kool G Rap is LOADED with features from LYRICISTS though... including Sean Price!)

Get Ready Sonequa Martin-Green, Starring In The New 'Star Trek' Series This Fall (Series Trailer)

Watch the explosive trailer for the next chapter of the Star Trek franchise. Star Trek: Discovery premieres September 24th on CBS All Access.

I hope you haven't sleeping on Sonequa Martin-Green, esp. when she was on Talking Dead, as a guest talking about her role on AMC's The Walking Dead. She'd be dressed up and made up like WHOA! - in direct contrast to her necessarily understated look on TWD. Well, she is far from dusty on her new show Star Trek: Discovery, though they still play down her beauty (you see it though).

Her 'death' on TWD did not hit fans as hard as 'losing' other characters because they knew Sonequa would be okay joining an 'enterprise' like the Star Trek franchise (see what we did there?). This dope trailer is just more evidence supporting how great this next chapter in the Star Trek lore is gonna be!

Rhythm Roulette With DJ Khalil (Video)


Rhythm Roulette With DJ Khalil (Video)

Tons of accolades for contributing banging beats to the biggest artists' hits. Sure DJ Khalil is all that. But how about this? We blinfold him and see how he fares in a game of Rhythm Roulette.

[W]e had to see what Khalil could do with the Rhythm Roulette challenge. At Artform Studios in Los Angeles, he picked out some darkside flower power with a Doors album, a Congregation record from the early '70s and a soul selection from Charles Wright to balance it all out. Because Khalil frequently works with rock samples, it seems like dude got the perfect ingredients.

Gonna let Ras Kass tell you about this Sean Price mini-tribute. I have seen footage of his wife rock with Rock on this Heltah Skeltah track, and it still chokes me up a bit when I see Sean's wife step in like this. Plus, I think she is getting better.
