Fire Pick of the Week
August 8-14, 2016

Stacks Image 469951


Good day party people — your boy’s back with another pick
(or in this case, two) for you this week!
It looks like Drake has some competition for hot rap coming out of Canada.
First up, we have a new joint from a crew called Dragon Fli Empire (MakeBelieve Records) called Back Up ft/Qwazaar and Thiaone Davis. Starting the track off with a soulful sample, the funky beat kicks in and the crew go in hard on the cut. This is the second single from the forthcoming album from Dragon Fli Empire called Mission Statement, slated for an October 2016 release.
Go cop this one!

My second fire pick for this week comes from Clear Soul Forces (Fat Beat Records). The song we feature from this crew is called Represent (Nina’s Revenge). Many people believe that the sound of today’s rap is far from what the feeling was back in the 90’s. Crews like Clear Soul Forces fight against that belief, coming with soulful samples, boom bap beats, and dope conscious flows. This single comes flowing thru the speakers, giving the listener that vibe many of us love to get down to.
Go get this one!

That’s it from me this week. Be good to yourself so you can be good to others.
Peace!! –
DJ 3rd Degree...

Art of Rap Tour 2016
Los Angeles, CA July 22, 2016

Ice T’s rap tour took its second trip around the country and the L.A. stop
was one of many that left the fans ecstatic.

Held at the world-famous
Hollywood Palladium, the show was hosted by the one and only Chief Rocker Busy Bee. Music began promptly at 7pm and was kicked off by young up-and-coming L.A. rapper, Tre Capital. Tre raps in the style of Big Sean and had the place lit during his set. Music was trap style like Future. The sparse crowd seemed to like what Tre did.

Busy Bee, who hosted the show, came out between acts, telling jokes and livening up the growing crowd. Next up on stage the legendary Kurtis Blow! He started his set with my personal favorite of his, AJ Scratch. He then went on to run thru his hits such as The Breaks and Basketball. One of the highlights of this set was Kurtis, who’s in his late 50’s, dancing and doing spins with his break dance crew — it was dope!

Mobb Deep rocked the stage next. Taking us through many of their well-known songs, Havoc and Prodigy did not disappoint. They started with Survival of the Fittest, then rocked songs like Temperature Rising, Eye for an Eye, Got It Twisted, and of course, Shook Ones Pt. II. An amazing set, Mobb brought that 90’s boom bap, hard!

Following Mobb Deep was the original gangster, Ice T. The crowd rocked together with Ice through his hits like 6 In The Morning, I’m Your Pusher, Sex, Colors and New Jack Hustler. Then he blessed the crowd by bringing out the legend, Kool Keith from Ultramagnetic M.C.’s. Keith rocked a solo song and the crowd was super into it. Great surprise for L.A. to have Dr. Octagon come out. Ice also brought a local rapper from Watts, CA, named Feddy (sic) and he did a joint titled Throwing Up The W. Straight, west coast style.

EPMD
was next up to rock the stage. Erick and Parish still sound like it’s 1988. They rocked all their hit songs like Strictly Business, You Got’s To Chill and Crossover. When Erick Sermon did his song Music, he had the crowd singing along. These two never disappoint.

Last but for sure not least, it was Public Enemy’s turn. Chuck D., Flavor Flav, Professor Griff, The S1W’s and DJ Lord sure know how to put on a stage show. With their band blasting thru their set with songs like Welcome to the Terrordome, Prophets of Rage, Night of The Living Baseheads, We Got Game and more, PE was for sure in full e.f.f.e.c.t.!! This group is still the leader of the rap revolution.

In total, I was highly impressed with the show. High-level rhyme skills were on display all night long. They are still rolling thru the U.S. so, if they are coming to a town near you, go check it!
Peace!

KCMU RAP ATTACK
#FBF 1988

KCMU RAP ATTACK #FBF 1988: I found this on You Tube — a rare recording of two of my very first RAP ATTACK radio shows aired in 1988. The first link is about 37 min long & you can hear my MasterMix around 10min 30 sec into it. Both aired on 90.3FM KCMU, 28 years ago. I was fired from KFOX in April of 1988 as the station was sold & they made it clear to me that the new KFOX would NOT play RAP/Hip Hop anymore. KCMU, based on the UW campus, offered me a Sunday night slot around July of 1988 to keep KFOX FRESHTRACKS on the air. I accepted the offer, went from AM to FM in 3 months & renamed my show KCMU RAP ATTACK. I wanted this show to sound just as good as if you're listening to a Casey Kasem American Top 40 show or any professional sounding show you'd hear on commercial radio. I didn't want to just yell on a mic & say my name in a mix or during the show so I invested $$$ in getting Professional Custom Voice Over Drops. I also made my own Drops & the rest is Seattle Hip Hop HISTORY!
Here it is from 1988 (28 years ago) yours truly,
