Respek on the name Iman Lexington, Curator Of Dope Music And Movements and Getter Of Things Done For The Culture. She hit us about the gem that was up and available over there with DJ Rahdu & BamaLoveSoul: A DJ Needles BiggieFE mashup!

Just a lil something to celebrate the 20th and 10th anniversaries of The Notorious B.I.G.’s and The Foreign Exchange’s debut. I hope you dig what you hear…

DJ NEEDLES – THE NOTORIOUS EXCHANGE (ALBUM)

The Foreign Exchange – “Body” (Video)

Got the hookup. Like we needed another reason to get with that “Tales From The Land Of Milk And Honey” project by Foreign Exchange (out now). Phonte and Nicolay keep it pushing, only stopping long enough to drop a music video for their “Body” single. Watch above (the music, merged with the visual, and all that “Body” in there. Ah yes, Eye Candy)!

Here’s your hookup: Take this smoothed out jawn to your baby, and say, “Let’s forget the club this weekend and just chill… No ‘Netflix and’ nuthin’… just you and me.” Then click play on this jawn. And yooooo… you’re welcome.

Phonte And Nicolay Recorded The First ‘Foreign Exchange’ Album Before They Ever Actually Met (Video)

This is the short that’ll fill in all the blanks (if you have any) about your understanding of the story of Foreign Exchange. Phonte and Nicolay tell a compelling story of a chance meeting on a message board that grew into a musical bond that produced a Grammy nomination and what will likely be a life of artistic fulfillment. Great stuff! Watch.

Phonte Speaks On 360 Deals (Video)

Many new artists are still in search of a record deal with a major label instead of trying to maintain some type of independence with their art, but what many of them fail to realize is that almost all deals with major labels are “360” deals. For those of you who in the dark it simply means that the label gets a piece of everything you do from album sales, touring, & damn near everything else. In this particular interview Phonte gave his opinion on these contractual agreements that have now become the industry standard with the majors. Phonte is releasing his first solo album “Charity Starts At Home” on September 27th & with everything he’s said in this interview it’s not surprising that he’s dropping the album on his own Foreign Exchange Music label. Check out the lead single below….

PHONTE  –  NOT HERE ANYMORE FEAT. ELZHI  (PROD BY 9TH WONDER)

Phonte – Charity Starts at Home (Cover & Tracklist)

We got the tracklisting for Phonte’s long awaited solo Hip Hop LP. No single yet but the album doesn’t drop til September 27th so we gotta be patient. Tracklist after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Foreign Exchange – ‘Return Of The Mack’ Live (Video)


Who would have thought that Phonte would perform this Mark Morrison joint live onstage?! They even mixed in a little Get Boys ‘My Minds Playing Tricks On Me’ into the repetoire. Hahaaa! Looked like everyone was having a good time down there at The Foreign Exchange’s Virginia show….

Foreign Exchange Talk About Avoiding A Performance Nightmare (Video)

If you’ve never been to Canada then you may not be fully aware that they have some very strict border policing practices. Phonte, Nicolay, & the rest of the Foreign Exchange crew talked about being in a very tight situation very close to showtime in Toronto. Check out the video to hear the story & following the jump check out some behind the scenes footage of Foreign Exchange’s new video for ‘Authenticity’ which is the title track from their new album in stores now.
