King Baker aka King Swagg- Don't Touch the Fader

The 1st time I posted Swagg, I can't front it was more of a favor even though the song was dope! Then after hearing how he went on a 15 minute freestyle rampage on U st. I asked the homie Reek to send me some more of his work! Well he did and one of the tracks that stood out was "Don't Touch the Fader" produced by the DMV's own Osinachi, who is now a signed producer with Rodney Jerkins over at Darkchild. I haven't seen him live yet but everybody that has says once he starts rapping it's very difficult to get him to stop!! Well from this track along with the other's I have heard I believe it, and I think he has a good future ahead of him!

I know I keep saying it but I must repeat it, I have been so impressed with DC metro area hip hop over the last few weeks! I think we got the formula down now!! Anyway the homie's Dre "The Mayor" and Raheem Devaughn have started a label, 368 Music Group, and their breakout talent Phil Ade is the truth!!

Dre blessed me with an advance of the mixtape and man oh man, are they on to something! Not to make comparisons to anyone but when I listen to Phil rap it gives me a Lupe type of feel!! Again I'm not comparing their lyrics but that's the type of feel I get from Phil Ade!! You know, some real hip hop!

With that said, this Friday at the Commonwealth store in DC, the 368 Music Group will have an official release party for Phil Ade's new mixtape, "Starting on JV", so make sure you stop by and check it out!

Michael Jackson was the best to ever do it!!

Man this clip is a prime example of what nobody will ever be able to emulate!! Michael Jackson was not only the best entertainer to ever grace a stage, but the most famous person to grace this earth!! With that fame came a lot of stress with the media, rumors, those with alternative motives etc. Therefore instead of grieving over Michael Jackson's death, I choose to celebrate his life cause I know he is in a better place now!! Besides, youtube clips like this of his perfect dance performances including the world famous moonwalk will make sure Michael Jackson lives on forever! My heart and prayers go out to the Jackson Family and all of MJ's friends!! R.I.P. Michael Jackson, the none before it none to come, best entertainer ever!!!

"Sony Is Roc Nation"

“Sony is Roc Nation. That’s where Roc Nation’s going through,” Jay-Z told on Friday (June 29).

As for the deal he recently signed with Atlantic, he clarifies that it is a one-off situation for his upcoming album, “Blueprint 3,” slated for a September 11th release.

“That’s pretty much just for this specific album. Roc Nation — we’re experts in marketing and making records. But we do distribution deals,” he says. “On this one, we’re working directly with the Atlantic staff, which is Julie [Greenwald], Lyor [Cohen], Kevin [Liles] and Kyse [Mike Kyser]. For the rest of the Roc Nation artists, we did a distribution deal with Sony.”
