Another cut I produced for the homie Rah Scrilla. Hit me up for that work.
Five years ago I started recording an EP that became an album. Did the whole thing in a week off from school. Today we come full circle back to that project. Check out this special Xtended Edition featuring the OG album and some new remixes. produced by none other than myself. Chk it, share it, tell me what you think.
For the XE, Sleaze revisits a few of his favorites and delivers them updated fresh for 2014. All I can say is… HEAT. He certainly delivered something special with these new versions! - Michael Gregoire of blocsonic [SOURCE]
So this emcee from RVA named Black Liquid approached me to do some masterful beats for his latest project cause he needed that fire and he know I got it. So I reluctantly agreed to bless his new joint cause I'm such a nice guy. Who am I to deny an up & coming rhymesayer of dope production? This is the video for one of the cuts right here. Directed by BCMusic1st, the video takes place at The Compound (a super secret music venue in the city) and features cameos from some of RVA's freshest artists. Of course, I'm front and center dispensing my unmistakable brand of support (see above photo). Check the video below.
Check out the dope beat compilation release by BLVNT RECORDS featuring a truckload of fresh, up & coming producers and beatmakers from around the globe. This joint is 60 (sixty) tracks long! More than enough heat to get your whole barbecue blunted.
So, through no actions of my own, it appears a song I created with my brother Joey Ripps for my album Broad Street Boogie, released on Blocsonic will be featured in a short film being screened at the Hollywood Black Film Festival!! Talk about amazing! The short film, directed by film student Misa Spencer, is titled "Fall Beats" and is an urban love story.
Dumping off some new beats for your Saturday groove. Never stop groovin'. A collection of beats created from Teddy Pendergrass samples. Enjoy. Oh yea, don't rap on my shit. I'm still gone use some of these beats.
I was recently going through an old hard drive of mine and ran across this instrumental set i created back in 2008. Conceived as a tribute to one of my favorite albums, I decided to finally release it for others to enjoy. The 2005 album by North Carolina group Little Brother The Minstrel Show is one of those special albums that fans of true hip-hop hold near and dear. Along with their debut The Listening, Little Brother carved out a pretty strong niche for themselves in the early 2000s that was plagued with chronic under-promotion and low album sales. The group produced a host of mixtapes and two more studio albums before disbanding, to the dismay of many fans.
Personal and professional issues aside, The Minstrel Show album stands as a testament to the creativity and inventiveness that was always present in the projects from the supergroup. These dudes created their own universe on record and invited us in. Too bad the industry and personal differences pushed them out.
So, above is the full set of instrumentals; created from the sample selections used to create the album. Listen, share and enjoy!
