Some new material from Joe and Royce that has the internets abuzz of lately and rightfully so. A lot of rewinds on this one.



Oddisee drops his third installment of his seasoned themes. This go round he has features with the likes of Homeboy Sandman and X.O. from Diamond District. 13 tracks of goodies for the season.


Looks like the suits have their ears to the street or are paying someone to do so. Either way McDonald’s link up with Dollar Van Demos to run a campaign on their dollar menu using New York indie artists Joya Bravo and Wordspit. I haven’t seen the Wordspit commercial yet unless it’s the second that will run. However, the commercial with Joya Bravo has been aired last weekend during the NFL playoffs.

In addition to McDonald’s, Subway teamed up with MTV in doing a piece on Homeboy Sandman in their Fresh Buzz series.
You can check the video for Homeboy Sandman’s segment here.

Shouts to Dollar Van Demos. Congrats to Homeboy Sandman, Wordspit, and Joy Bravo. It seems like the streets are doing more then just watching.

First was the earthquake that shook up Haiti. Our prayers go out the people that lost loved ones and to those that are still trying contact and locate any that are still missing. Besides Wyclef’s Yele Organization there a couple of ways folks can donate or contribute to the aid of the folks there. A good friend of ours, Tasty Keish, has put together a listing of such options you can check those options out on her blogsite

The next that happened during the week was the passing of R&B great Teddy Pendergrass. I know it’s in the shadows of the Haitian earthquake so it hasn’t gotten too much press, but it seems like this list of entertainers we’re loosing has been growing especially in the last year. Our condolences go out to his family RIP Teddy Pendergrass.

We’re pretty cool with the folks over at and I saw this posted a day ago and decided to check this out out of curiosity. A few tracks in and I knew this was something pretty cool. I won’t give all the treats away but if you’re a fan of the Transformers and love hip-hop then this creative instrumental project is a good look for you.

Shouts to and Jett-I-Masstyr who’s out of Texas.


Pardon the tardiness on the posting of this but I wanted to listen to this before posting (yeah I know a little selfish)
With that said someone was ever so nice in recording the live musical guests that rocked with The Roots as the closing segments on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show. Shout to TSS and Shake for doing the artwork.
