Combat Sports And Hip Journalist Ismael AbduSalaam Speaks On ‘Beats, Boxing & Mayhem’ On Odell’s Roundtable (Video)

Aha! My dudes! A no-brainer that I had not thought of… until Odell put it together here. Why not have @ArtByOdell and BeatsBoxingMayhem’s Ismael AbduSalaam just start talking and record the jewels! Yeah. And how much content are we talking here? Enough such that we had to post the two-parter. Start above, and continue after the jump.

Ismael AbduSalaam is a well respected journalist who covers Music & Boxing primarily. He joined me on the Roundtable where we talked how he got into covering Boxing & working with great sites like AllHipHop.com before creating his own site BeatsBoxingMayhem.com. I also shared with him how I almost got into a fight at a Camp Lo concert he was covering for AllHipHop.com which if it happened might have changed the chance of us ever meeting.
ArtByOdell

WHAT??! Somebody disrespected Odell and his lady?? Why do I still feel a way about that? Like I need to pick up something blunt and get my bro’s back on that… But it’s over. It’s just that Odell is such a chill dude. Anybody starting sh!t with him gets me heated. Wooosah!

Ah! Gospel rapper Mehsij pronounces his name ‘Message’… as in his raps are not just about words but the Good Word!

Mehsij is an artist from Albany, NY, who relocated to Atlanta to further push his music career. At one time he thought it would be as simple as meeting an already established famous artist then it would be easy going. Once in Atlanta, he changed his mind state stayed on his grind but has made it a point to do his part with mentoring and helping the community. He is part of the organization M.O.S. (Men Of Standard) where they partner with school & other groups to help an example and sometimes just being an ear for kids.

ALL CAPS, no cap: BoneBreaker Jones, Sam Peezy, J-Sun KOA, GreaseKydz & Sikz Earned My RESPECT

Above: J-Sun on the left, Sikz on the right, and all the GreaseKydz right down the middle from front to back (Tea Bag da HerbalistShawty PlxExpo, Phobro da Ab)!

…and that was waaay before this past Friday night! That is why I extended an invitation for each of them to give a feature LIVE performance at the 16th Anniversary Celebration of The Remix, one of Atlanta’s best and longest-running Hip-Hop radio shows. When @ATLRemix gave me the green light to program the first hour of the six-hour event with a live cypher-inspired lineup, I immediately reached out to the talented folks who showed love, showed up, and showed out on my dream mixtape “Livin Proof” Rebooth LP project (posted on here a few years back). When I could not pay them anything more than RESPECT, they did that for me. And though my pockets are still hella lean and linty, I still have RESPECT, with interest, for all these guys (including post-Rebooth newcomer Sikz). RESPECT earned, RESPECT due, RESPECT paid… In that way, me and mine are very wealthy indeed (RESPECT stays being paid). And the night of the event, the brothers showed love, showed up, and showed out like I knew they would (and then some)!

Sidebar: RESPECT is crucial, you see. So much so, RESPECT! was the theme for our portion of the Anniversary Celebration event; a program within a program you will see tagged #ALLCAPS #nocap around the Interwebs. Because we mean it, we are shouting #RESPECT to everyone involved in making this happen – in ALL CAPS, no cap, from the tippy-top of the ‘Snocap’ (as in ‘snow-cap’ on top of the mountain, as you will see in the logo after the jump).

Engaging interviews and mind-blowing performances from my bredren BoneBreaker Jones (with Sam Peezy aka Tony Factory), J-Sun KOA (King Of Alabama), GreaseKydz (Expo, Phobro da Ab, Shawty Plx, Tea Bag da Herbalist) and Sikz #RESPECT #ALLCAPS #nocap

And the family of support I had was HUGE: Gerald Olivari, DJ Yogi, Tierra, BigDee, and Brittany of @ATLRemix …videography by Si-Video Production’s own Robert Nunnally and on-camera Host/Spokesmodel Liza Ashe of @GoodCurvy …my invited ‘press corps’ (@ArtByOdell and Ismael AbduSalaam) …and my consultant & stalwart ally Iman Lexington who answered all my what-do-you-think calls and emails leading up to the event. Even my nephew Jasen (J-Sun’s son) came through and stayed with his old uncle to make sure I was ‘safe’ while out that late at night. Plus, after a long work week, seeing all the familiar and new friendly faces in the place gave me LIFE #RESPECT #ALLCAPS #nocap

The whole night was EPIC! And, man, oh, MAN! Just wait until we get our audio and video finalized. Keep keeping your ears and eyes open for that. And keep checking back here for the exclusives!

(In the meantime, I tossed in a few behind-the-scenes screenshots after the jump.)

Charlton Palmer Speaks On Being “CP The Artist” & Not Being Put In A Box On Odell’s Roundtable (Video)

Knowledge and confidence in self. VERY important! Watch as CP draws a parallel between his lane in the art world and the rap game. Dude has been ‘Kanye-ing the game’ for some time now. Another dope interview from the homie Odell.

Charlton Palmer aka CP The Artist is a self-taught artist who refuses to be locked down by a particular style or medium. A native of NJ who has made Atlanta his home now knows firsthand what it’s like to try and get your name out in a new city. He talks about how he balances working his craft while also having to be his own publicist and anything else it calls for to run his business. It’s a great discussion on staying creative and also what he has coming up in the near future. So check his work out at cptheartist.com and let he and I know what you got from the discussion!

Britteny Speaks On Finding Herself As “Trap Yoga Bae” On Odell’s Roundtable (Video)

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the interview quote of this decade: “How can yoga help you when you are so stressed out that you wanna just slap a hoe?” Baaaahahaaa (but for real, how?)!

YOU MUST WATCH THIS! I always watch & listen when the homie Odell uploads a show because it will be QUALITY. The bonus here is the guest. Odell always invites the best to sit with him, but Britteny is FIRE! Heavy on the woke (consciousness) and just as heavy on the WOW (just look at her, Yeezus West)!

Britteny AKA Trap Yoga Bae stops by the Roundtable. Its a great discussion on how she built her brand from the ground up. She explains how she took on Yoga just as a way to relieve stress and it’s led to her purpose. She breaks down some of her ratchet affirmations & encourages us all to just do some good in the world. This was a fun episode!
