    Tha Rap Round Table : D-Wreck Of Wreckshop Records

    in Hip Hop Music

    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.

    Tha Rap Basement Appreciation Show : DJ DMD

    in Hip Hop Music

    DJ DMD, the creator of such southern secular rap classics like So Real (which featured the late DJ Screw & the S.U.C.) and 25 Lighters, re-emerges after a self-imposed hiatus from the music industry. After releasing 4 critically-acclaimed independent albums through his old indie label, DMD decided to make a change in his life's direction...and with his music. His new company, e5 entertainment, is the vehicle he intends to use to release music that's "good for the soul and bumps in the trunk." On the heels of the remake of his classic 25 Lighters by Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top, DJ DMD re-enters the music business with his own remake of the same classic...the testimonial #25BiblesOnMyDresser (featuring Bizzle & Jarrod Phillips). Reinvigorated by a new mission - which is to inspire a generation to consider using their hiphop talent to positively affect the world - DJ DMD will bring his experience in quality production and song construction to a genre geared at offering the world hope through hiphop.

    Rap Basement Cartel Radio : Doc Nassed Pt 2

    in Hip Hop Music

    A culture and form of ground breaking music and self expression with elements that consisted of the elements of graffiti art, DJing, MCing, and breaking. Today Hip-Hop is considered to be dead in the mainstream because so-called mainstream Hip-Hop doesn't have the elements of hip-hop and have no meaning. 
    The stuff on MTV and the radio can't be called Hip-Hop because the lyrics don't have any meaning or self expression. Wack artists today just rap about their shopping lists and other bullshit. There are no more DJs making a prescence since artists today think they can manage without them. Without a DJ there are no scratches and cuts. No much graffiti art is being shown in videos.

    Tha Rap N Hip Hop Basement : JOn Black The Great Interview

    in Hip Hop Music

    JOn Black - An MC with witty lyrics, a wide range of sonically-astounding rhyme patterns, and a passion for creating music that will be enjoyed by mainstream rap fans, and hip-hop purists alike. JOn Black became versed in music from listening to his mother's oldies tapes, featuring artists like The Stylistics, The Delphonics and many more. As a child he transferred between Sacramento Ca, and San Diego Ca, which led to his exposure to many different styles of music. As he got older he began to delve into Rap and R&B. While an avid fan of many genres, JOn Black didn't begin writing or producing any music until the age of 16. At 16 he returned to San Diego, more specifically the gang-infested streets of "Southeast Daygo." Growing up in "The Southeast" exposed him to a much grittier side of life than he had previously known and the lessons it has taught him can be heard throughout is music. It was during this time JOn Black began to get more deeply involved in MC'ing and production, and crafted his rhymes after what he considers some of the best names in Rap, artists such as Tech N9ne, Dj Quik, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def, Tupac, Biggie, and Mac Dre. In addition to rap, Jon Black, dabbled in Turntablism, spoken word poetry, and instruments such as the guitar and the saxophone. Not allowing himself to be limited, JOn Black sought an understanding of music as a whole, delving into an even more "eclectic" palate of sound. After locking himself in the lab with nothing but sticky green, vinyl records and Red Bull, JOn Black is more focused than ever and ready to take the music industry by storm.

    Rap Basement Radio : Dj Screw B Day Appreciation Show Ft Big DeMo

    in Hip Hop Music

    After spending most of the 1990s as an infamous local phenomenon in Houston, TX, DJ Screwsuddenly found himself gaining sudden notoriety before his unfortunate death in late 2000. The Houston DJ made a name for himself primarily because of his uncanny mixing style, which found him pitching down his records to a lumbering and quite eerie pace. Over the course of the '90s, what began as novelty actually became a rather lucrative venture for Screw, who produced hundreds of mix tapes, with some estimates projecting his total number of tapes topping over a thousand; furthermore, he sold the tapes at his Houston-based record store, Screwed Up Records and Tapes. Oddly enough, he preferred to release his mixes almost exclusively on cassette, though fans often recorded the mixes and traded them via the Internet; in addition, countless "screwed" remixes of popular rap anthems were widely available on Napster thanks to his cultish following.
