Soooooo De La Soul drops “Get Away ft.the Spirit of the Wu” last summer and blew our minds. They had us HYPE for a new De La project, we thought it was coming and then…… nothing. Flash Forward to valentines day and they give away their ENTIRE CATALOGUE for free download on their website. That was insanely cool and immensely generous considering this is DE LA SOUL. That catalogue is F’n priceless B! And now this?!? An ENTIRE project called “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” (Da Inner Soul of Yancy) full of DE LA / J DILLA collabs? FOR FREE!?! Am I dreaming? All I can say is THANK YOU! (I guess thats why their new album is gonna be called “You’re Welcome”
Here’s the first track off the mixtape “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” called “Vocabulary Spills”
The full project “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” (Da Inner Soul of Yancy) will be released on 3/26/14 at www.wearedelasoul.com Oh! and if thats not enough they have ANOTHER mixtape called “Premiem Soul On The Rocks” produced by DJ Premier & Pete Rock! It’s gonna be a good year.
So ya boy Bad Seed -aka- NiggalisCage has started something the world of Hip Hop radio was definitely missing: An “Adult Contemporary Hip Hop & RnB” radio show. What does that mean? Well, right now mainstream urban radio is super youth driven. You mostly hear everything marketed to 11 to 19 year olds. Then you have a few underground radio stations and shows and those tend to play brand new independent artists and nothing else.
So what’s missing? How about old school and new music that grown folks like to listen to? Some of it might be “underground” but a lot of it will be mainstream as well. Some songs appeal to adults as well as young kids, but let’s face it – most of us are pretty tired of hearing the same 7 songs on repeat all day, with mostly immature content, nothing grown and sexy, no classics, no positivity, etc.
So where can you go to hear that good-good? Welcome to 6th Man Radio! The show lives on GetYourzWorld.com
This episode is sort of a pilot, a test run to iron out the kinks. It should hold you for now and then starting in March the show will air every Saturday, 7:30 to 9:30pm.Â The premise and format of the show is : ADULT CONTEMPORARY HIP HOP/OLD SCHOOL R&B/ AND 80â€™S ERA MTV MUSIC. Seed has a co-host, the lovely Nadine Michel and two special guests, MIMS and JEAN GRAE call in the show for this first episode.
Black Star premiered this new song on Colbert Report. In the interview, Mos drops the bomb that he has changed his name and will no longer use “Mos Def” as his professional name.
