Anytime I see someone doing exactly what they were put on this earth to do, it makes me happy for some reason. Watching Macklemore & Ryan Lewis bask in their success during their world tour with Buffalo David Bitton capturing their moments solidified the reason why I gave a great review of their album when I first heard it. These gentlemen are here to entertain and to change the face of music which is exactly what they have done. Take some time to check this out before the day is up.Tweet
If I could put into words how much I love this man, I would. Saying he means the world to me doesn’t do him enough justice for the family he’s raised, lives he’s changed with his kind heart and loving nature, and sacrifices he made for us to have a childhood with little to no worries. Dad I love you more than words can say, and I pray you wake up with the assurance that your family is forever thankful for everything you do.
I was VERY lucky to find a homie that would put together a mix for pops, Dj Rick Gee has quickly become one of my main go to dj’s that knows his music here in Reno. When I made the call initially I didn’t think he would do it but he came through in the clutch just in time for my dad’s day, which is today. When I listen to this, I think of my dad as a young boy in Oakland on his way to music practice, just enjoying the music…
So here goes the mix,
Soul Man Music mixed by Dj Rick Gee!
SPOLIER ALERT: This video has content from Breaking Bad you might have not seen yet! Just a heads up.
SO. Just in case you’re barely getting into Breaking Bad and the series finale is on Sunday, Jessie Pinkm…..I mean Aaron Paul decided to tweet out this lovely montage of EVERY damn thing he has been through. I found myself completely annoyed with him in the last couple of episodes, but after watching this I feel kind of bad. :/
Dee-1 did something amazing with his video budget for Walking Revolution, he used the funds to feed the homeless and impact his community in a positive way.
Don’t compare this situation to other emcees or artists that choose to do what they may with their budgets, but lets take this moment to applaud this young man on helping those who are less fortunate by donating his time, and funds to help out those in need.Tweet
Last year at my new digs here at Wild 102.9 in Reno, they managed to get me to dress up in some pleather with angel wings and a corset for Wild Erotic Ball, and it’s that time again! no idea what I’m going to be pulling off last minute this year, but I’m looking forward to seeing all the amazing costumes and outfits people put together to try and rake in $5000 worth of prizes.
Last year’s party was a huge success, and it’s going down again this year at The Silver Legacy Grand Exposition Hall, you can get your tickets there or at Wild 102.9 offices at 595 E. Plumb Lane in Reno.
Knowing more about the producers music that takes up my memory in life and my iPhone makes me content about where my support goes. This particular producer was known by the whole Pulse Crew mostly when we would drop those early J. Cole tracks, and we’d all yell out in unison “ELITE ELITE ELITE!!” in the studio. Those were the days.
You might not be sure who Elite is, but he’s one of the brilliant minds behind TLC’s “Crooked Smile” production, which is currently #27 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts and still on the move to top 10.
What I didn’t know before watching this mini documentary on Elite was that he attended production school, which, is sometimes thought of to be a waste of time because of the accessibility of production in this generation. His education is one of the strengths that allows Cole to trust his input, as well as setting Elite ahead of other “producers” that don’t know what a patch bay is. (I’ll give you a dollar if you can text me the right answer…and no, you can’t have my number if you don’t have it already.)
More importantly, Elite currently has a single available on iTunes called Imagination Day feat. Sean McVerry and is finishing up his second mix tape titled Level Up which will drop on November 5th.
As Elite is working on a project with a former college classmate as well as his own music, it’s dope to see him creating a sense of family within his own clique while pursuing the life with his musical talents. Before working with Cole, Elite did quite a bit of work with the Ruff Ryders crew, and has soundtrack credits for 2 fast, 2 furious. Do some research on the kid, he’s been putting in some work.
“ELITE! ELITE! ELITE!”Tweet
Gotta love the jewels that MTV throws your way to remind you that they are MTV from time to time, this group Disclosure is featured on MTV promos right now for musicexperiment.com where they choose bands to live stream a show via that website.
Lucky for me, Disclosure is doing a show that is set to air on the site at 11pm EST- so if you’re intrigued by them make sure to tune in for the live stream tonight via musicexperiment.com
I’m sure I’m late to the Disclosure bus, brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence are the house music duo that makes up something fresh for my personal playlist for those moments where I just want to let go for a few.
Their latest project Settle is available on iTunes to purchase, or you can stream it in full on Spotify.
This track though, Latch completely pulled me in, solely off of the snippet that was chosen by MTV. Good call on their part because after a dozen listens to just this one song it quickly became one of my personal favorites…
