Hip Hop….

I’m blogging live from The Attic Studios in Chicago. We’re in the process of mixing Young General’s new joint featuring Wade Soul called “Going Places”. Special shouts out to the homie G Ball, head engineer at our new recording home.

I hope all my producer heads out there enjoyed the Brett Favre Un-Retirement Kit from last week. You can still download it below for a little while longer. In the meantime, we are just about to mix What Up by Young General, produced by myself, The Letter L…One.

Happy Monday Hip Hop!

What’s good family? We just got out of the studio with the homie Twone Gabz who was putting the finishing touches on his verse on Young G’s new project called White Sox Fitted. The song also features a verse by Chicago’s own Mikkey Halsted. Big shouts out to G Ball over at The Attic here in Chicago on the mix as well. The song will be crazy and the video will be absolutely bananas! Oh, and here’s one more exclusive gem to drop…Lee England Jr. on strings! If you don’t know who that is then check out and get acquainted. This song will be the Chicago anthem…

In the mean time, here is a free kit dedicated to my man Brett Favre who promised to un-retire after he decided to retire the year after he retired and then un-retired but decided that his ankle couldn’t…*smdh*

Hello again Hip Hop!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. We finally wrapped production on Young General’s album. It does not have a name yet. Maybe we can have J throw a poll up and have the fans vote on a name.

We just got back from New York. It was a productive trip. Shouts out to Steve Frawst!

Young General had his first performance with his band Five Star. It was live as hell and if you missed you missed it. YouTube videos of the performance coming soon.

If you are in Chicago on Wednesday, March 10 The Letter L has a beat battle at Reggie’s Rock Club on 2109 South State Street in Chicago. Come out and support Letter L Entertainment.

What up Hip Hop,

Happy Monday, I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. This is your boy Jason G aka JGAR. Its been too long since my last post. I wanted to give you an update on our progress. I have been pushing music full time for about a month now and feel like I’ve accomplished more in a month than I have in the last 6. The past month has really been a focus on organization. We are setting goals and deadlines to get projects done. Getting shows booked is also high on the agenda. Now that we have a finished product, we are ready to get the music out there and really create a solid following.

The show at Enclave on Friday was a huge success! This charity event for Haiti raised a lot of money through donations. We also got the chance to network with other up and coming artists in Chicago. We are back in the studio tonight to finish a couple more tracks for the mixtape. On Wednesday the 27th, G is performing at The Chicago Performing Arts Theater. We also have a show twice a month at U.S. Beer Co. starting in February.

That’s all for now. More updates coming soon. Check out this hilarious video on Record Label budgets.
