Fatt Father – “Veterans Day” (Prod. By D.R.U.G.S. Beats)

Fatt Father spit that he “belongs in sickness-ville” on his “Unthinkable” joint… AGREED! Them flows are SICK, dude! I mean, beats from DRUGS (DRUGSDRUGS…haaa) don’t hurt either. But this Detroit emcee is a lion of a lyricist, showing why he rules his jungle on this “Veterans Day” project (entirely produced by DRUGS).

(Salute to my folks at Bad Magics for hipping me to another heater!)

Salaam Remi, Amy Winehouse’s Main Producer, Speaks On Her Artistic Influence, Dying At 27 And More (Video)

Ohhhh! Amy Winehouse’s main producer was Salaam Remi? That’s one of Nas’ go-to producers. Wonder if that is what put them in contact (e.g. both working with and trusting Remi), allowing them to grow their friendship. Or was it that those two were friends… and one introduced the other to Salaam Remi.

Salaam Remi is one of the producers who worked heavily with the late Amy Winehouse. The producer discusses meeting Amy, and how they would come together to produce jazz music. He goes on to speak about her issues with love, her sense of humor and how that affected her music. Despite producing a majority of Amy’s work, Salaam reveals he did not get a Grammy alongside the songstress. Salaam talks, Amy’s legacy after the troubled singer died at just 27 years old.

Black Gandhiii – “Views From The Death Star” (Prod. By John The Third)

This “Views From The Death Star” (prodduced by John The Third) is some of that off-center ‘ish that will catch my ear flying around in the Soundcloud. Check out New Orleans’ own Black Gandhiii. Not much online in the way of background/info on the artist. Self-described as…

A kid with an open mind. Who’s struggle defines him, also allowing him to create great music. Telling his story and the truth about life. Follow the movement and stay tuned…

So, there’s that. Also, Black Gandhiii is down with Lamaj Records out of Houston, Texas (USA).
