Hmmm… Kendrick Lamar had a shot at the “3 Kings” beat first, huh? Interesting. Well, it wasn’t like the music was wasted. Rozay did the work (listen here). Jake One beats should never be. Check him out as he explains how the beat came to be for the Behind The Beat series.
Seattle producer Jake One aka ‘Snare Jordan’ is a beast with the beatmaking. We’ve posted on him before. Did you know his work was on one of those monster singles from 50’s “Animal Ambition” LP? Well, here’s visuals on his making of the “The Funeral” beat. Daughter with him, at the house, kind of like a take your kid to work day.
In the Behind The Beat video above, the beast mode beat king of Seattle (Washington, USA) recreates a hot track (Drake’s “Furthest Thing”) and talks about how he ended up sending beats to Drake (thanks Twitter). Worthy. Very. Enjoy!
Brother Ali keeps keeping it real. ‘How absurd is this… How is it so many poor people Conservative?’ Good point. Lots of hot lines in the thoughtful lyrics in “Work Everyday” by Brother Ali. Check out the video above. Get the full Brother Ali album (via link in an earlier post) below.
Another banger from the Freeway full-length project, “Diamond in the Ruff” (out now, see link below). This one is “True,” and it features Wale on the track. The beat is a Jake One – DJ Khalil production.
Scoe (formerly known as Roscoe) releases the first single of the upcoming mixtape, “Tha Influence,” entitled “Thank You.” The single features vocals from Dre protege Kendrick Lamar and production by Brother Ali’s go-to guy Jake One. The cut gives thanks to west-coast Hip-Hop ‘father’ Dr. Dre. Nice! We got you on the FREE download for “Thank You” right here.
Off the “Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color” album (link for pre-order here; due out September 18, 2012), Brother Ali leaks “Mourning in America” (produced by Jake One). You can buy a digital copy of this single now from iTunes via the link provided here. Also, we posted a link for pre-ordering the album in a “Behind the Scenes” article here.
Ricky Rozay’s upcoming album “God Forgives, I Don’t” drops July 31st…
It’s good to see many of the songs I’ve chosen to play on my radio show that weren’t necessarily singles from artists are just starting to be released as videos. This joint “The Grinder” from Wiz Khalifa’s latest “Taylor Allerdice” mixtape I instantly knew was a banger produced by Seattle beatsmith Jake One. Niiiiiiice….

I’ve been up on Germany’s Joy Denalane for a few years now, but new songs from her don’t pop up that often from the multilingual soul singer since the 2006 release of her “Born & Raised” project. It was her standout track “Change” featuring Lupe Fiasco that really caught my attention coincidentally after I had returned back to Atlanta from a trip visiting with friends in Germany. Her solo appearances & collaborations are still rare releases but she still pops up every now & then on joints with fellow R&B artists like Dwele & Bilal as well as popping up on a few rap artists & producer based projects like on Virginia’s NOTTZ song “How Long Will It Last” from his “You Need This Music” album two years ago. So with her relative absence in releasing any new material for a few years it was surprise to see OKP premier this new remix from Seattle based producer Jake One. Joy Denalane is set to drop a brand new project on April 3rd entitled “Maureen” which apparently has a much deeper significance other than it just being her middle name. It’s makes even more sense considering the early reports that the album has a dark bluesy & soulful edge to it that is quite difficult to fully categorize. Looking forward to some more goodness with this….We’ve waited long enough

New joint from Rhymesayers emcee Brother Ali produced by Jake One off of the Minneapolis emcee’s upcoming album Mourning In America & Dreaming In Color. Pretty dope jam from one very slept on emcee from Minnesota and Seattle producer.
This track is produced by Jake One and will be on Quan’s new project Glorious Struggle.
This video starts with one of my favorite beats, Speak Ya Peace. I dumbed out when this video started. Then Lord Finesse talks about digging for rare samples and some of his influences.

Definite banger! Been playing this on the radio show but didn’t know a video dropped for this joint! Snoop Dogg sounds dope over this Jake One produced banger. “I don’t represent the Republican party or the Democratic party….I represent the Gangsta Party”. Larry King’s repeat of “GANGSTA PARTY!” made me chuckle a few times….
