You need to check out this highly anticipated mixtape by the VA fam: Aspire To Inspire MG aka #ATIorDIE… Consisting of Intalek, Meeze, Motive, Basic, Lewsid, Ready Rell, Stretch Dollaz, and Stacks Miller…. This latest project, #orDie, brings the entire gang together (FINALLY!! Because I have been waiting for this moment FOREVER!!! ….Sorry, That’s the DIE HARD ATI Honorary member inside me talking..LOL) after some of the members of the group independently pursued their own projects in the previous years before 2012. It also has a feature from another VA native: TV.

I AM SOOOOO excited for this!!  Thank you to Team ATI for giving us an exclusive listen to the album! I will say not only does this album have a lot of BANGERS but lyrically this is like listening to a New Age WuTang Clan from Virginia. LOL. I sincerely mean that in the sense of there are a lot of members and each of them bring their own lyrical fire to the project…It has a lot of character. The #orDIE project drops Jan. 22, 2013!! So we have 2.5 more weeks to go!! Stay Tuned to Twitter for the link 1/22/13 via the #ATI team’s twitters at the conclusion of this post!

In the words of the great B.A.S.I.C. of #ATI: “Spread the word, tell a friend… Good Music is BACK IN!!…”

Phenom is an INCREDIBLE talent from Chicago and he was gracious enough in his stop in NYC to come sit down with me and allow me to get myself formally introduced. Wonderful person, great lyricist, and hard working individual. #Shoutout to everybody in Chicago… This one is DEFINITELY for you!  Did I mention he can sing, beatbox, and do spoken word?… Oh yeah… *nods*… He’s the truth.

Can you tell me how to get…How to get to Gree-e-een Street? *In the Sesame Street tune*

MOST CERTAINLY!, LADIES & GENTS!

* She is SO THRILLED you asked!*

It’s right on INCREDIBLE Ave. …

Between GODOWNLOADIT St. & TODAY St. LOL!

When I say that this group has become an all-time favorite of mine… I REALLY MEAN IT! *She sings in her Dipset voice* The group consists of  A-Live, Soupa, Renaissance (producer) & Snaxx, and you just can’t get anymore eclectic in sound when it comes to these guys. With a third of the group hailing from Boston and the other 2/3 from Brooklyn, NYC, The Green Street gang brings you sounds that are classy, funny, motivational, and completely feel good. Grouping jazz influences from afro-beats, salsa, house, and Japanese club vibes with an innovative hip-hop twist… their sound stands in a class all its own. I’m SOOO HAPPY we got a chance to interview them right before they left for Japan!!!… I was TOO GEEKED! LOL.

Watch the SpokenFree ENT. Phone interview with Green Street:

CMJ Fashionista? … THANKS! ;-)

This blog post is more of a #SHOUTOUT than a post.

As you might have seen earlier in the posts, we did posts on Shinobi Ninja and JDP in conjunction with CMJ. BUT what I DIDN’T say… was that someone blogged about ME @ CMJ. LMAO. Who knew I was interesting to others? LOL. *Shrugs*

#SHOUTOUT to www.buisandwhistles.com‘s Andrew Bui for blogging about ya girl’s fashion sense at CMJ! I truly appreciate you and it was a pleasure meeting you! I figured I would return the favor and blog back because I have PICTURES of us TOGETHER! Check out these photos below… Please note the shirt I am wearing is one of SpokenFree ENT’s TryFacta Tee: “ENTREPRONEGRO” and it can be purchased via our website www.spokenfree.us in the shop. 😉

J.F. Brooks: The Sequel

So for this piece on J.F. Brooks, we have the MicBooth.com camp to thank and I am SO happy and grateful to get the opportunity to share this individual with you all. Some of you might know J.F. Brooks from a documentary called The Hip Hop Project, which was executive produced by Bruce Willis ( I know right?? You’re probably like, “I KNEW he was cool as hell for a reason!” Yup… Mr. Willis is a real live Hip-Hop advocate yall… ) and Queen Latifah back in 2006. It was also backed by the godfather of Hip Hop, Russell Simmons. If you haven’t seen it, it’s pretty AMAZING.

Art Start is the organization it was based on which was founded by Chris “Kazi” Rolle and it focused on doing what we always speak about in discussions concerning hip-hop, AUTHENTICITY and LYRICISM. Kazi wanted to help the youth by giving them an outlet to express their challenging lives through our beloved craft, Hip Hop. J.F. Brooks was one of those who participated and was up for the challenge. You can catch The Hip Hop Project on the Sundance channel periodically, check your local listings. *she says in her cable Tv announcer voice*… LOL. 😉

But I digress, what you might not have picked up on was that J.F. Brooks aka JerzyFromBrooklyn is a military man who served our country, toured in Iraq, and is now a married family man. With his album Undeniable already released on the internet and his resume consisting of doing shows at tons of venues everywhere, J.F. Brooks is the dark horse in this race to the top. Not to mention, this man is also multi-talented… dabbling in graphic design and photography. When you listen to Undeniable, you can hear the ol’ skool Brooklyn flavor and the new skool way of thinking. Not to mention, IT’S A RIDICULOUSLY ILL LISTEN!!, if you are a person who appreciates underground hip hop at its fines. This joint is a MUST HAVE and if it was a book, it would be a GREAT READ and maybe even a BEST SELLER.

P.S. It’s always nice to know someone who has a similar background as yourself, because I too am a person born of NY and raised in New Jersey. So as you “young people” say these days, “That s*** Cray”. LMAO. *she says poking a lil fun at the 90s babies*

Check out this SpokenFree ENT. Interview with J.F. Brooks below!

J.F. Brooks completely represents everything that we, at SpokenFree ENT. , always try to convey. Which is that without us supporting each other, NONE of us will win… Egos are counterproductive, and right now it’s all about getting back to the beginning…THANKS FOR GIVING SPOKENFREE ENT. THIS INTERVIEW MR. BROOKS! 😀

Shinobi Ninja In YO FACE!!!

This band can be described in one word: BLAOW!!!! If you haven’t heard of Shinobi Ninja, I suggest you check out the interview below that happened right before #CMJ at Artful Dodger to get to know each individual member… The band consists of 6 members: Duke Sims (D.A.) – VOCALS, Baby G – VOCALS, Maniac Mike – GUITAR, Alien Lex – BASS, DJ Axis Powers- TURNTABLES, Terminator Dave–DRUMS…This group makes clash music consisting of rock/metal/punk genres that is now crossing over into hip-hop, which is for lack of a better word, BLAOW!!!! AND I CAN’T BELIEVE I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THEM UNTIL I GOT THERE!!

SHAME ON ME. SMH…

When you watch the interview, you will find that each member brings a unique facet to the collective and you will feel compelled to just hang out with them for THE REST of your life…LOL.  It’s No WONDER why they have appreciators across the country that follow them from city to city off of the love they have for their music! Their personalities are infectious! They had me laughing the entire time! Their female vocalist, Baby G, has got to be one of the coolest chicks I’ve ever met… Me and Baby G, did our best on-stage Tina Turner shoulder-shrug impressions together inside Artful Dodger… If that’s not sisterhood bonding, I don’t know what is! Be sure to download their latest EP, THE BABY G EP, on www.ShinobiNinja.com
