Reminds of me of Cosby’s “Kids Say The Darnedest Things”. Saw this over at Tosh.0’s blog.

NightRiders – Passports & Paparazzi

10 Jan

NightRiders & Jace debut music video for “One Day At A Time” Remix ft. Grey Granite:

In support of the new album Passports & Paparazzi, NightRiders linked up with direct Jeremy “Jace” Wallace to visualize their single “One Day At A Time” Remix ft. Grey Granite.  The single has been circulating blogs since late November and has been featured on Faronheit, Tighten UP!, and Bringing Down The Band; the album has been featured on NoisePorn, White Label Nation, and Mostly Junk Food.  Jace is most recently known for the video he directed of alpha.live’s “Light Up” video.  With a talent for allowing Indianapolis to be a character of it’s own, Jace beautifully features the Fountain Square district of the city as the NightRiders put their daily grind on display.

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE!

For the track in the video, the NightRiders collaborated with Grey Granite on a remix of their track “One Day At A Time”.  “One Day At A Time” is dedicated to getting by and the hustle of life.  Jam P. leads out on the beat he created with his trademark rasp on the first verse and hook.  On the second verse, Grey uses his 16 to attack all of his doubters with a poignant tongue lashing.  The track closes with a slick rhyme from Bob G. Barker warning the world not to sleep on the NightRiders.  In a year consumed with posse cuts, Heavy Gun comes through with a cohesive collaboration from three of the label’s top emcees.

Bob G. Barker and Jam P. Astro formed the NightRiders in 2008 shortly after meeting in Indianapolis.  Bob G. Barker was already a veteran of emcee of the group Knox Haven, so when he met Jam P., a producer and rapper, it was like planets colliding.  Bob G. Barker is a master of the classic leisurely flow, and Jam P. Astro has the perfectly complimenting quick tongue.  The pair seamlessly transition between the club and the street.

NightRiders – Jump Off The Planet

19 Jul

The NightRiders, Bob G Barker and Jam P Astro, drop the second single off of their upcoming release Passports & Paparazzi:

Some movements just can’t be contained on Earth and “Jump Off The Planet”.  Enter the NightRiders, the definition of a dynamic duo.  “Jump Off The Planet” is the second single off of their upcoming EP Passports & Paparazzi and follow up to “Don’t Get Me Wrong” on Heavy Gun Recordings.  Their new song mixes an interstellar beat with the spit game of two top-shelf lyricists.

Bob G. Barker and Jam P. Astro formed the NightRiders in 2008 shortly after meeting in Indianapolis.  Bob G.

alpha.live + CMART – Steal From the Rich [Mixtape]

4 Aug

stealfromtherichFRONT

Considering I reside in the Nap, I might as well jump on the bandwagon and post this like everyone else.  It’s a solid release from one of Indy’s brightest shining stars.  Aesthetically it takes a lot from the Chi, and the appearances match that w/ spots from Rhymefest, Naledge, and Feso, but don’t be fooled:  Alpha is pure Indianapolis.  Download it.  Listen to it.  Repost it.  Watch.  Alpha’s career is about to get live.

MHC’s Top 10 – May 09

9 Jun

WesternBrothel2rev-copy

Wow, I am late w/ everything.  This was supposed to be posted like … a week ago, but I’m a slacker as previously mentioned.  The stand out track of the month was Dopeman by Pusha T and Cookin’ Soul.  As expected, everyone and their brother decided to jump on the beat w/ the best combination being Weezy, Push, and Kool G Rap.  The rest of the countdown is the typical cast of characters.

Full countdown below the cut.

DMX is a Fucking Nut Job!

25 Jul

Who in their right fucking mind would ever appear before a judge in a court of law wearing a black tshirt, jeans, and a gold chain?!  And then to top it off, flash a peace sign at the court cameras?

At least he’s still thinking about his career by plugging his album after the hearing.

Personal message to Dark Man X …. LAY OFF THE FUCKING CRACK!

The One Place Record Sales Still Thrive: Prison!

24 Jul

Bob Paris, owner of Pack Central, claims that the internet has not affected his music retail sales because he targets a literally captive market that will forever lack internet access … prison inmates.  Pack Central allows prisoners to purchase music via their commissary accounts.  What is even more intriguing about Paris’s claims is that the majority of sales are for tape cassettes.  This is explained by the fact that most prisons have a ban on CDs.

Guess what, Weezy’s Tha Carter III is even number one behind bars!

Damn, I almost wish the tape deck in my Bimmer worked.

Nas Wants to Drop an ALL Dre Album and an ALL Premier Album on the Same Day

23 Jul

I meant to post this shit yesterday before the 2dopeboyz, flocked on it, but I was slippin.  I think both of these projects would be massive, but I also think it would be massively stupid to drop both on the same day.  If I could see these 2 projects and the Game’s proposed D.O.C. project come to fruition by 2010, I would be a happy little gangsta.

2dopeboyz.com

So Nas announced an idea that’s brewing inside his domepiece about his future projects. Seems like he wants to record an entire LP with DJ Premier and an entire LP with Dr. Dre. Each would be crazy in their own right. On top of that, he wants to drop them on the same day. Hmm… if only one project could formulate, which would you prefer? That is the question I ask my dopeboyz and dopegirlz…

Clipse Present Re-Up Gang – Money

21 Jul

From 2dopeboyz:

I was wondering when a new joint would leak off the upcoming Clipse/Re-Up album. And the time has arrived. Here goes Money, courtesy of Steven! August 5th bitches!

Back to that gutter sound that was lacking on “Fast Life” but still lacking the edge of Hell Hath No Fury or any of the We Got It 4 Cheap series.

Snoop Dogg Remixes Johnny Cash?!

14 Jul

The OG of country music Johnny Cash is being remixed by the King of the West Coast Snoop Dogg for an upcoming remix album. I know that Snoop popped off with a country track on his last album, but I would have never expected this. This is something truly monumental. I wonder if Rick Rubin will have anything to do with the album. Could anyone imagine Johnny Cash over a Dej Jam era Rick Rubin beat? Holy fuck that sounds like a masterpiece!
