What’s Good Hip Hop?

There is so much on the Horizon for the Letter L Entertainment/Let’s Get It camp that’s it’s tough to know where to start. In addition, so much of our extended Hip Hop family is grinding so hard that there are a few things I wanted to talk about.

First and foremost, finally, a date has been set for Young General’s White Sox Fitted single release party. Congratulations to Young General for his continued success as the Chicago White Sox have decided to affiliate themselves with our camp and will be adopting White Sox Fitted as their official anthem for the 2011 season. If you are going to be in Chicago on Friday, February 25th, this is the place to be. Also, don’t forget that the song is still available on iTunes.

Young General & The Chicago White Sox Present: The “White Sox Fitted” Single Release Party. Come out and celebrate this special night with us.

This red carpet event will start at 10pm. $10 cover all night.

Special appearances by Young General, Mikkey Halsted, Twone Gabz & more!

Hosted by Al B. Sylk
DJ 33 1/3 on the ones and twos

Prize giveaways all night including:

USB wristbands
WSF T-shirts
Tickets
& More!

Bottle Service is available.

P.S. Don’t forget about the official after party sponsored by ChiIL Productions.

Next, I need to send shouts out to Naledge, Kids in the Hall and the whole Brainiac Society crew (What up Fooch, Vic Mensa!). While we can’t talk too much about it just yet, there is definitely new music brewing so look forward to that coming out of Chicago.

Next, I wanna congratulate the big homie Mikkey Halsted on the success of his album The Darkroom which was released shortly before Christmas. I heard the album and it is incredible. Including my personal favorite, Field Ni**a Blues. Don’t forget to check out the video for that song at http://www.hiphopmusicdotcom.com/mikkey-halsted-field-nigga-blues-video-ft-b-j-chicago-kid-freddie-gibbs.html. The album is available for download on iTunes.

Last but not least I want to send a special thank you to everyone that has been helping us on our journey over the last two years to make this hip hop thing happen for us. There are so many to name but you know who you are. We love you! Keep supporting good music!

Several sources, including E! Online and Russell Simmons’ GlobalGrind.com which apparently had a server crash, have reported that singer Teena Marie was found dead by her daughter. The reported cause of death is seizure.

Teena Marie was a great inspiration to me a musician. She will be missed.

9th Wonder Back At It

For the last ten years, 9th Wonder has been the Pete Rock of the new millennium. Not to mention, one of my early personal influences as a producer.

Shouts out to 2dopeboyz.com and NodFactor.com for keeping an eye out for the soul in the game…

9th Wonder and his Jamla imprint have released a new project called 9th’s Opus: It’s A Wonderful World. Shouts out to the NCCU fam including Rapsody, Big Remo and David Banner. I wonder if he makes an appearance on this one…

Available on iTunes now.

Good evening Hip Hop, with special appreciation to my producer brethren…

Those who have a pulse on the production side of the game know that Just Blaze closed down Baseline studios–the house that Roc-A-Fella built–earlier this year. Last week he re-opened in an expansion effort with Stadium Red in Harlem, NY. Check out coverage by Nodfactor.com featuring interviews with Just Blaze and Double O, producer for Kidz in the Hall at Nodfactor.

WHITE SOX FITTED PREVIEW

YOUNG GENERAL: We were put in touch with Twone Gabz by Javin, Mikkey’s manager. He said, “It’s a nice song, and I think Twone would be a good guy to get on it.” Because we wanted to get some official Chicago guys on it.

What of Twone’s work had you heard at that point?

Dog, you don’t understand. All these beat battles and stuff like that… I had been at Twone Gabz’s beat selection party, where producers came and brought beats for him to listen to for his new album. And it was stacked in there. That’s how I linked up with Omega Supreme and a bunch of other different producers, because for me, it’s like (makes “easy” sound.) Remember Coming to America and the Black Awareness Rally? When they had all the woman up there? You know, “There’ll be some good, clean girls over here.” (Laughs.) Whatever Akeem doesn’t pick, I’m taking home with me! I’ll take the leftovers at the Black Awareness Rally.

That’s how I felt going to the Twone Gabz beat selection party. I’m like, “You’re telling me it’s just going to be guys playing hot beats, and he’s going to pick three or four out of the thirty or forty that get played?” I’ma be like, “Yeah, we need to get that guy’s information right there.” I’ve known about Twone – he had a big song a while back called “Bully.” He’s got a new album coming out. Twone’s been doing this forever. He’s been doing mad shows. I knew he would be official for it.
