“First step is love. Missing that, don’t bother.” – staHHr
The HH is for Hip-Hop, and so is staHHr. She definitely got love… from us and always for Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop isn’t her middle name. It’s in the middle of her name! Something so right about staHHr flows over an Astronote beat. The single “Get Right” is off the “Mother Nature with a Molotov: Molotov Season” LP. Lovely visuals above.

Respect to 6 Rings. This is the way you come through! Through the studio for Saturday’s show; then coming through with this gem in the inbox. “Road House” – an homage to the ’80s cult classic. Don’t know about you; but whenever that movie comes on it gets watched. So, we had to give this several viewings. You should, too.
In honor of Patrick Swayze for his roll as Dalton in the 1989 cult classic B-film “Road House,” 6 Rings Music Group have put together a montage of scenes from the movie which best describe the attitude of this Hip-Hop record.

Of course, our posting something means we think it is good and/or relevant… It’s an endorsement. And we don’t endorse just anything. But this endorsement of “Days Of Gray” – a mix by Mr. Sonny James – should be taken with a bit more weight because of who else says so. Turns out that Mr. Sonny James (aka DJ Statik) is #6 on DJ Jazzy Jeff’s “Your Favorite DJ’s Favorite Deejays” list! For real. You may start partying, knowing that Jeff (and JayForce.com) approves.
