If you haven’t seen any of their skits, get to it!
For our next interview, we sat down with Jeff and Eric Rosenthal otherwise known as comedy duo It’s The Real. In our interview we talk about how they got their start (Eric worked with Kanye West, Jeff as a writer for Rap-Up). We discuss the start of It’s The Real, branching out into podcasts, working with MTV, and projects they’re working on for the future.
I first shot Kendrick Lamar while shooting Jay Rock’s album cover in Knickerson Gardens in Watts. Louie Mejia from CNN is always on the lookout for the next lastest greatest talent we have here in LA. So I put him in touch with Kendrick through my good friend Richie Abbott.
We accompany rapper/chef Action Bronson as he judges NYC meat festival Meatopia. Pause. The segment concludes with a live Action Bronson from his show at Gramercy Theatre in NY on July 23, 2011. Enjoy!
The Bullitts & Jay Electronica team up once again for another arthouse flick. If there’s any new Jay Elect out I want to hear it. Embrace this moment because there’s a good chance you won’t hear anything new in the near future.
Ricky Rozay & Alchemist hit up the studio for Ross’ God Forgives, I Don’t project. Judging by the beats in background and the ones that are showcased, this project is going to be a BEAST! Rozay always had an ear for beats though. *Salud*
For those who weren’t fortunate to attend Young Jeezy’s show at Highline Ballroom in NYC, I have some videos for you all. Considering that I didn’t make it to the show until the end, I had to watch these videos as well. Regardless, the show was DOPE! When Kanye West came out the fans lost their minds, but he wasn’t the only heavy hitter to make a guest appearance.
I love, love, love Hip Hop Report Lounge’s discourse about music. In this episode they discuss J. Cole’s music and how much he has fallen off. I can’t say I disagree. Half the time I see his music posted I listen to the first 30 seconds then turn it off. Don’t get me wrong, I support J. Cole and want him to do well, but it seems that his heart isn’t all the way it in. Plus, these last few songs all sound the same. Same thing with Drake’s last 2 songs.
I stumbled across this a day ago at the Dopehouse and I just felt the need to share. You don’t understand how much I’ve played this in the last 24 hours. Its that real. I’m now a Kendrick Lamar fan to the fullest.
