Tha Advakit – "Pour A Lil Liquor" [Dedication To Robert "Yummy" Sandifer]

| August 31, 2009 | 0 Comments

Wow.  Tomorrow marks the 15th anniversary of Robery “Yummy” Sandifer’s death.  Yummy garnered national headlines in 1994 for the brutal murder of a young girl, and later his own murder by fellow associates.  He made the cover of Time magazine in September of 1994.  In his short life (11 years old when murdered), Yummy accumulated 23 felonies and 5 misdemeanors.  He would’ve been 26 years old today. 

Tupac Shakur immortalized Yummy, by referencing him in many songs and interviews, throughout the course of his (also tragically short) career.

Last year, you may remember, a blog by the name of Pardon Me Duke, posted the entire Time magazine piece on their site.  So you may want to check that out if you’re unfamiliar with the story.

Chicago emcee, Tha Advakit, dedicated the following track to Yummy’s memory.

I really wanted to send this to you because you partly inspired this particular song. About a year ago, you posted a story about Yummy Sandifer and it really touched me, mainly because I’m from that area and I’ve worked with kids who seem to be on the same path that he is. I was so inspired that I wanted to write a song about him, so I did, and I think I executed it very well. Seeing as how September 1st marks the 15th anniversary of his death, I wanted to spread this to as many blogs as I could because I really want people to understand that there is a war going on in Chicago, particularly on the southside.

Mishon – "Remember The Time" (Da Internz Remix)

| August 31, 2009 | 0 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting on this one since Da Internz leaked that first snippet of it.

This song is important for a few reasons:  Not only does this remix honor the legacy of the late, great King of Pop, but it also gives some young talent (Mishon & Da Internz) a chance to take a crack at a classic record.  Not to mention, Teddy Riley cosigned it!  When you have the original producer of “Remember The Time” interested enough to stop by the studio while you’re recording, to offer his input, you must be doing something right. 

Well, now you can enjoy it for yourself….

Maja 7th & Jap City hit the studio to record “Studio Wordplay 101″ from the upcoming FSD + Maja 7th mixtape, The Breakout.

I set out to do a record with JAP CITY that was different from the “Typical(if you will)” joints they “say” he does all the time. This record is going to be called “Studio Wordplay 101″. Jap talks about everything that is normally in a studio and formulates it into a song. AS ALWAYS…YOU KNOW HE HAD SOME INTERESTING THINGS TO SAY LMAO!! Stay tuned!!!
