Wreckshop has been on hiatus since 2008, but D-Reck, sitting down with me on a recent visit to New York City, said he is ready to resurrect it. In our long talk, we discussed the implosion of Southwest Wholesale, a huge manufacturer and distributor for the Houston rap community through the ’90s, and the shockwave it sent through the business end of the Houston rap world when it shuttered in 2003. With the production and distribution arrangement Southwest had with many Houston labels gone, artists and labels were left scrambling. Some signed, some stayed independent, and others faded away. It was only a couple of years later that the mainstream began to notice what was building in the Bayou City, and artists like Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Slim Thug, and Chamillionaire broke into the mainstream, bringing Houston with them into the spotlight.
Jasiri X's Hip-Hop is incisive social commentary and his videos have been featured on diverse sites such as Allhiphop.com, The Huffington Post and BET Rap City, among others. Jasiri X’s hit song “Free The Jena 6” was played on more than 100 radio stations and named Hip-hop Political Song of the Year. His debut album, American History X, was named Album of the Year at the Pittsburgh Hip-Hop Awards. And he joins us on Music Friday Live!
Lose Control’s roots are Black Sabbath and Guns N Roses, but they have added their own contemporary twist of world class guitar shred virtuosity that reminds people that hard rock is far from dead.They released their first studio LP, Let If Be Known, in April with their signature "dual lead" guitar sound, strong vocal melodies, and a heavy metal backbone. The band has shared the stage with Unwritten Law, Shiny Toy Guns, and Authority Zero and is now wrapping up a summer of tour in support of Let It Be Known. Jeff Nisen, co founder and guitarist for Lose Control joins us at Music FridayLive!.
Tonight on "It's Real Talk Radio" we're having our first of many "Music Mania Monday", which is a show dedicated to the talented up & coming Artists, Musicians, DJ's & Producers who are on their grind.
Joining us on the second half of the show, we have a talented, skilled, & unique emcee by the name of "J-Heat." After hearing some of J-Heat's music, it was only right to reach out to him for a guest appearance on "It's Real Talk Radio". As our fans and followers know, we support good music and talented indie artists. J-Heat has an unorthodox style that separates him from most rappers who tend to follow the rhythm of the track, whereas J-Heat makes his own rhythm on a track while still getting his message across and giving the hip hop heads dope rhymes and wordplay. It's a pleasure to have an emcee of his caliber come onto the show and discuss his movement.
Tonight isn't about us, it's about music appreciation and the up & coming talent. This is what it's all about: Music Mania Monday on "It's Real Talk Radio", the first of many, so get used to it. Anyone interested in being a guest, shoot us an email on ItsRealTalkRadio@yahoo.com. Our Social Medias will be listed below and you can contact us there as well.
