Some Good Looks for Boston Hip-Hop

Monday, November 30th, 2009

While Boston-based indie rock groups like Passion Pit are moving 10,000 units in their first month and selling out the Orpheum and House of Blues in consecutive weeks, Beantown’s urban artists are squabbling about who got nominated for the Boston Hip-Hop Awards. I’ve already gotten two calls from local rock dudes laughing at me; “Is this some sort of publicity stunt?” one joked.

That said; as far as I’m concerned there’s too much good shit dropping around here for me to tear people down. At JTTS we support local and lash out at disproportionately propped d-bags like Wayne and Pain. Here are two fresh tracks that hit my in-box recently – one from the Block Brothaz (Bad Guy & Big Smo) and another by G. Montana featuring some Bean rap royalty. Enjoy.

Wow. Hip Hop Really Is Dead. R.I.P. Technics 1200′s?

Saturday, November 28th, 2009

Several websites are reporting that production on Technic 1200s + 1210s will cease in February.

I find this very difficult to believe.. I’m getting that same queasy feeling I got when I heard that Obama had won the presidency, or when Michael Jackson had died.. or when I read that Faraone is a fan of Wale..

This particular turntable was a STAPLE of hip hop culture. Next thing you know Vibe magazine will shut down or Fat Beats will go out of business..

New Lucky Dice = Lucky You (and FREE download too)

LUCKY DICE

I must confess; after my celebrated title work the other day, I’m finding the accolades tough to live up to. In other words: sorry about my weak headline, but the cut is hot regardless.

Over a classic Isaac Hayes sample courtesy of Blaze P, ReksM.Diesel associate Lucky Dice returns strong after a year-or-so hiatus. You may have heard dude crush the joint “Telescopes” on Grey Hairs; now prepare for more.

Sorry about the shitty old pic; MySpace is being bitchy and blocking my access unless I download the new Firefox, which is not compatible with my broke ass operating system. But if you can get up on the Lucky Dice page, then download his new mixtape, Blowin’ Smoke, on the house.

Disc Review: Wale | “Attention Deficit”

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

It turns out there is merit behind the billion-dollar hype machine that’s been propelling Wale since he surfaced on the face of URB two years ago. Dude is a substantive and innovative artist — and that’s coming from a critic who was nary impressed by his lazy mixtape work.

If You Want To Shit On Me For Flip-Flopping on Wale…
