Dash Flash – “Bars On I-95 Freestyle” (Video)

The I-95 freestyles are golden with me. I click to watch and start my write-up before the raps even get started, because I already know the BARZ are gonna be there and be top shelf. Truly, everybody can’t make the cut to reach rarefied air in Connecticut.

Bars On I-95, Connecticut’s number 1 Rap platform for your favorite Hip-Hop artists. We love when veterans come on our platform and show the new guys how to get it done over a beat. What we love the most is scouting and discovering new rappers and we are always honored to be able to display their talent to the Hip-Hop community so the industry gets familiar with them. “When are you going to have a Spanish rapper up there?” One of the dope things about Hip-Hop is it’s versatility, it touches all cultures. We caught that comment and called Dash Flash down to the show and he got busy. TAP IN ‼️
– Bars On I-95

Only thing I take issue with… sorta… is the shots fired in the general direction of over-30 rappers in this. But young lions take bites out the backs of the old sires to take over as king of the pride. It’s treacherous in the jungle, even for the kings! It’s Hip-Hop.

Arsonal Da Rebel | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #139 (Video)

My disrespect be on some other sh!t…

Now, if Arsonal did a diss track on you, you would KNOW you have been DISSED! Barz can get treacherous (and they do). Funk Flex had to fall back, again! This is what he must mean when he says “everybody can’t come up here!”

Dzydex Speaks On Becoming A Producer & A Man On Odell’s Roundtable (Video)

I mean, I am more of a producer… a behind-the-scenes kind of guy more than on-camera talent. However, I get tempted to get interviewed every time I watch Odell do one of his guest intros. The props he gives are tops!

A lot of times the main person that can hold you back from Greatness is yourself. When I recently had Dzydex on the show he spoke about how he has grown as a music producer. He is well traveled living in places all over the world as a military brat. His production has caught the eyes and attention of people like Joe Kay of Soulection to being used for Adiddas ads in London. We talked about how he has built the relationships in this music and life game and what drives him to push forward. Check out his music at http://www.kolossuskulture.com and if this provides value to you please subscribe to the Channel & share with a friend!

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Freddie Gibbs & Madlib (Video)

I like this whiskey in my cup. We not givin’ a f**k…

‘Skinny Suge’ and Madlib make their way to the studio for a Tiny Desk concert. And everything is right with the world. Actually, it went a little left, starting jazzy then lyrics went HARD. But that makes things even ‘righter’ (haha)!

This Freddie Gibbs and Madlib Tiny Desk performance was a year in the making, largely because Madlib insisted on playing with El Michels Affair, a vintage funk and soul band based out of New York. But it was worth the wait. When pianist Marco Benevento opened with a delicate, almost jazzy run, it created the perfect opening — and juxtaposition — for hard-hitting emcee, Gibbs to jump in and ride the hell out of that beat.

Damn.

Another episode with a swerve that hit me like a hook. Korporate gets props from me always, the way he funds these vids by pushing sponsor products/services without being to pushing… and he keeps the storyline pushing… AND the Eye Candy ALWAYS got that good CUSHION for the PUSHIN’ #ThickHoneyz #Fukutalkmbout #OnGaude

All that said, let me give y’all your IG homework (extra THICK for extra credit)!

Locksmith Speaks And Spits For Hip-Hop Culture… And Fellow Guests Fat Joe & Dre Are Amazed (Video)

Your favorite rapper is full of sh!t.

Quiet as kept, Fat Joe doesn’t give out this level of insanity props to just any emcee. I’m thinking… the last time he really gave out kudos like he was flabbergasted… was when he talked about Big Pun. Rarefied air. Props well deserved for Locksmith. Dude is a BEAST with the BAR talk!

But don’t take my word. Watch and listen to the man spit the FIRE from above.

We’re not new to Locksmith’s bars — but he came by to drop off a fire freestyle with Dre and Fat Joe in the room. Watch as Joe adds his seal of approval by calling him “the best.”

Oh. And bet money, real money out of your real pockets, that you will NOT regret hanging in there through the loud talk to get to Irv’s real talk about Ashanti (about an hour-and-a-half in). Serious.

‘The Therapist’ Talks To Joey Bada$$ (Video)

All is love…

But sometimes we are just too far down to feel its warmth. We need help sometimes. Sometimes, we need help to learn that we need help in that way.

I like the way the doc inches into the depths with Joey at the start. Joey being allowed to talk. Talking to somebody, esp. a professional, is a good thing… that can bring us back to better things (like full wellness and good mental/emotional health).

Joey Bada$$ grapples with the suicide of friend and fellow rapper, Capital Steez.
