DJ Jazzy Jeff came up with Back for More by Al Johnson—“classic”—Say No More by rock act Les Dudek, and the 1973 self-titled album by funk act Reuben Howell.
Jazz got the chance to work with a brand new Serato software plug-in called Sample that integrates with Serato’s O.G. production software, Pitch ‘n Time. As the name suggests, Sample allows users to chop samples and manipulate them freely. BPMs can be adjusted to the utmost extreme without any loss of audio quality. A highly intuitive interface allowed Jazz to quickly find, chop, key-shift, and time-stretch samples.
Watch below how the magic came to life, and let us know your thoughts.
Women have been making strides in abundance in a male dominate world. From sports, medicine, and many more, women have proved time and time again that they are as good or even better than man.
Now we can add DJ Perly to the growing list of women that are breaking the ceiling and doors or our society.
A New York native and Puerto Rican-Russian American, Perly became the first woman to win the DMC USA National Finals, taking home the title August 5th in New York while beasting fellow regional DMC champs such as Dwells and Schmeeze. Also a 2016 NYC DMC regional winner, becoming the first woman turntablist DJ to win a DMC US Regional DJ Championship in the process, she reached second place in the DMC USA National DJ Final that same year.
“That night, I instantaneously felt the high energy of excitement,” Perly said to HipHopDX. “I knew it was going to be a really good battle. Not sure how the night would end, but it was going to be a good night. When I heard my name as the USA champ, I was surprised and just overwhelmed with joy. I was so overwhelmed I kinda lost feeling in my legs and dropped to the floor [laughs]. That moment truly felt magical and gratifying that hard work was paying off.”
Now she has the opportunity to compete in and win the 2017 DMC World Championship, representing the United States.
“From what I know and experienced in the past is that some people just don’t think that women can do what the guys can do,” she says. “Some people just don’t want to see a woman kick ass and prove that women can do anything in this world. They’re just afraid.
“Women are so underrepresented in not just Hip hop, but other genres of music,” Perly continues. “Some men — not all — see women as weak and frail, but in fact, [we] are truly the strongest. Women go through a nine-month pregnancy, and give birth to the future and next generations of game changers. And think about it, child birth hurts like hell and we still kick ass. I applaud all those women who fight day in and day out to show and prove that this world is not a man’s world, and women can succeed in male-dominated fields. Women have the power and strength to move the world in a positive direction. We all have that power.”
Although the Public Broadcasting Station(PBS) is known for such shows as, Sesame Street and Downtown Abbey, they have had plenty of amazing quality content. For example 2015’s The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution and many many more.
Being the longest running PBS show, The Open Mind, has had hundreds of guest. With the likes of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcom X, Aloe Blacc and JB Smoove. Hosted by Alexander Heffner, grandson of the creator of the show Richard Heffner, 9th Wonder was recently a guest on the show.
During 9th’s time on the show he spoke of many topics. He talks about History in Hip Hop, Harvard archive, Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z and more. The entire show runs for about a good 30 minutes, but is worth the time. You guys should really watch. Check it out and let us know what you guys think in the comment section below.
The Roots and Pharrell performed an amazing set at The Roots annual picnic last month. They played a melody of songs from their classics, bringing out the Clipse and others throughout the headlining performance.
An official clip from the concert has now been released, thanks to Okayplayer. The Roots Crew and Skateboard P combine the band’s “Break You Off” with 702’s “I Still Love You,” which Pharrell sang the hook on and The Neptunes laced track , for an amazing addition to their set.
JAY-Z’s 13th solo album ‘4:44’ is here and fans have already started to dig into it to identify some of the most prominent samples used by the project’s sole producer No I.D. Genius rounded up every sample you need to know, from Nina Simone’s 1966 track “Four Women” on “The Story of O.J.” to Sister Nancy’s dancehall classic “Bam Bam” on “Bam” featuring Damian Marley and Donny Hathaway’s “Some Day We’ll All Be Free” on “Legacy.”
Summer wouldn’t be summer without a annual DJ Jazzy Jeff mixtape. For seven straight summers the illest DJ to ever touch some turntables has blessed the people with his amazing mixes. The cookout-ready set is packed with tunes from the likes of JAY-Z, Pharrell, SWV, Heavy D, Barry White and much more. Stream the mix below and enjoy.
JAY-Z has let loose once a Tidal exclusive for everyone to enjoy. Check out the video below.
“‘The Story of OJ’ is really a song about we as a culture, having a plan, how we’re gonna push this forward,” JAY-Z says of the song during his track-by-track break down of the album. “We all make money, and then we all lose money, as artists especially. But how, when you have some type of success, to transform that into something bigger.”
The video is a animated clip revolving around the character of Jaybo (a flip on “Sambo” from the racist children’s book The Story of Little Black Sambo from the 20th century) as he navigates through a landscape of cotton fields, slave ships, burning crosses, and lynchings.

OutKast’s debut album Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik was introduced to the world 23 years ago. So J. Period crafted a mix together in celebration of its anniversary. Recorded live during his set at the recent party Art Of Storytellin’: Brooklyn, J. Period blends classics from Big Boi and André 3000‘s catalog with a variety of instrumentals, such as “B.O.B.” over “Panda,” “Art of Storytellin” over “Children’s Story,” “Skew It on the BBQ” over “Truffle Butter” and more.
“23 years ago today, an album came out that changed the course of hip-hop history forever,” J. Period says. “Before Outkast put Atlanta on the map, hip-hop was East and West; Outkast opened a bridge to a whole new world in the South, and paved the way for other cities to brand their own distinct styles of hip hop. It’s an honor to take part in Vibe’s celebration of this milestone and pay tribute to Outkast’s catalog with this new mixtape. Remixing Dre and Big Boi verses over new and classic beats is my way of showing the timelessness of their catalog, and the greatness of these two visionary artists. Plus: hearing Andre verses back-to-back over new beats tunes your ears to really dissect his lyrics in a new way. No question: 3 Stacks is one of the greatest MCs of all time.”
If you haven’t watched the second installment of Netflix’ The Get Down, please go slap yourself and pull out your laptop, tablet, ect. and go watch it now. The soundtrack to the show comes out on April 21st with offerings from the executive producer of the show, Nas, of course The Get Down Brothers and many more. Check out the video from one of there performances, “Break The Locks”. Again go watch the show its amazing.
The throwback song (of course, as the series is set in the late-70s, during the birth of hip hop) features the crew rapping, dancing, scratching and performing over Apache’s “Incredible Bongo Band”
Jake One and Mayer Hawthorne form like Voltron to become production duo Tuxedo. The pair stopped by Good Records—the shop, not the label. With tied bandanas over their eyes, they grabbed up three random records to sample.
Although the soundtrack to Blue Thunder had them somewhat thrown off, they also came up with a 12-inch single by Logg, and the Gamble & Huff sure shot, MFSB’s Love is the Message.
You already know Jake One’s style: from Chance the Rapper to 50 Cent, Drake, and Fun, the versatile Seattle beat smith gets it in wherever he feels. Hawthorne’s light-hearted brand of blue-eyed soul has won him fans since his 2009 Stones Throw debut. Tuxedo’s danceable tracks have an undeniable pop sensibility, they also show a heavy G-Funk and 80s electro influence, which shines through on the beat they built for us.
“We got the disco kick offa Log, the rest of the drums from MFSB, and kind of a dramatic sound offa the Blue Thunder soundtrack,” said Hawthorne, who also added his soulful crooning to the sonic stew. “And that’s how you craft a whompin’-ass banger, Tuxedo style.”
So check out the creation of the record in the video down below. Also go check out there new album Tuxedo II now on iTunes.
King Kendrick is back again with his new song, Humble. Produced by no other than Mike Will Made It, the song was released with a matching video directed by no other than Dave Meyers. With some help from The Little Homies. Check out the video down below.
April 7th can’t came fast enough. The trailer starts out like an episode of Inside the Music, following The Get Down Brothers in their transition into the mainstream all while clashing with disco. Netflix describes it as:
“A mythic saga of dreams, desire, soul and sound, The Get Down chronicles the epic musical evolution from disco to hip hop that defined 1970s New York City – as told by the relationships, struggles, triumphs, and artistry of the South Bronx teens who saw it through.”
The album was recorded in just 7 days with the entire process documented via Facebook Live. Some of the world most renowned artists who contributed to the album were The Roots’ James Poyser, TDE’s new artist SiR, Eric Lau Masego, from the group Foreign Exchange Eric Roberson, and of course Dayne Jordan, and many more.
According to DJ Jazzy Jeff:
Chasing Goosebumps exemplifies the sincerity and soul-bearing emotion that only comes from unhindered creativity. Not genre-specific, the album is an eclectic, yet cohesive, mix of soul, funk, hip-hop, jazz, pop and samba. From the melodies to the lyrics, Chasing Goosebumps is moving and provocative, tackling topics like social injustice, relationships, love and the music industry. Vocalist Glenn Lewis serves as the perfect vessel for these stories of frustration, anger, hate, inspiration, love and hope. His distinctly familiar voice navigates the range of topics and music styles with effortless delivery.
Chasing Goosebumps is musically as diverse as the artists who brought it to life, The PLAYlist. More than a supergroup, The PLAYlist is a movement that promotes authenticity in music and empowers artists to remain true to their craft. For The PLAYlist, Chasing Goosebumps is reassurance that real, meaningful music is not a lost art. Chasing Goosebumps is not the end of an era. It’s just the beginning

Common has released a short film called “Black America Again” produced by Ava Duvernay. The same person the produced Selma and The 13th.
With the film reaching a bit over 21 minutes, the film offers what Common says is “a meditation” on the album’s content, stitching together a set of black-and-white visual poems. Intermittently, Common pops up, rapping stripped down verses from the album on abandoned streets, accompanied by a beatboxing drummer. Check out the short film below and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Good morning everyone! Hope everyone had a nice holiday yesterday. Much respect to veterans on the lovely Memorial Day. I have a good friend of mine that I have been working with for years.

Sit back relax and enjoy this breath of fresh music from Al Dozen.
To me BINK! is up there as being on of my all time favorite producers. The way he brings records together with that hard, grittiness, smoothness is just remarkable. His drums are also out of this world, I really enjoy the records he produces.
In this episode of Rhythm Roulette, BINK! heads to the record shop , The Groove, in Norfolk, VA. He does what most all the producers that are featured on the show. Blindfolded as he picks three records from the Dilla section. Side note: You know that you are a influential producer when record stores have a section of records that you used to make your music. Anyway watch how he uses the records he picked to create in my eye a wonderful banger.
One of the more bittersweet moments of Phife Dawg’s memorial service in Harlem this week (April 6th), Andre 3000 reveled that both OutKast and A Tribe Called Quest had talked about doing a album together. Sadly, it didn’t happen. Just think what it had been like.
It’s been over a week and a half since Phife Dawg’s passing, and the tributes are still pouring in. The mix has some samples, edits and a whole bunch of stuff between. So take some time out and relax and press play on this amazing mix.
“Tribe Called West” features trumpet work from Keyon Harrold, who helps add to the jazzy vibes throughout the two-and-a-half-minute track. As the brush strokes flow over the snare drum, both Martin and Harrold trade riffs on the soothing track. Stream “Tribe Called West” below.

After linking up at The Record Krate in Raleigh, Mass Appeal joined 9th back at his studio to watch the master at work. With Charly McClain, Jermaine Jackson, and The Temprees at his disposal, the GRAMMY award-winning producer warmed up with a few quick flips before ultimately chopping up Lovemen. The final result was so crazy, Rapsody immediately hopped in the booth to bless it with a proper verse. In my opinion this is the best one yet. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below.
Vince Staples opens up about the rampant high school drop out rate and the glorification of drugs in rap music. This is so refreshing to have a new artist out talking about what is real and not selling out to what is popular. Check out this clip he did with CNN.
Ummmmm Banger alert!!!!! !llmind and Timbaland join “Forces” in celebration of the seventh release of Star Wars. Check out the dance infused trap track below, then go watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
A few weeks back Cole announced that his Forest Hill Drive homecoming concert would come to HBO in a documentary special. The documentary is set to air on January 9th, but before the premiere, HBO is releasing four half-hour episodes documenting the whole experience. J. Cole unveiled a letter explaining the documentary series:
Check out the first episode, “F@*k Money, Spread Love.
“This song speaks for the world. It’s pure love being poured out from a place of hope and faith,” he said. “My only goal with all my music is to help and spread good vibes. I’m just happy we are helping to push a positive energy around the world.” – Terrace Martin
Banger Alert!!!!!! With Pusha T’s album just a week away, he blesses us with another banger produced by Diddy.
“It’s one of the hardest records,” King Push said of his favorite song on DBD in a recent interview. “It’s not even overtly hard… it’s just a conversation. It’s eerie. It’s true. All I see is victims.”
Kendrick Lamar performs “Alright” at Austin City Limits. The hour long performance will be on PBS January 9th. This is just a taste of what is to come on his new tour, “Kunta’s Groove Sessions”. Check out the performance below.
Bleacher Report & Blackalicious Team Up To Recreate “Alphabet Aerobics” For Sports
Bleacher Report brought legendary hip-hop duo Blackalicious into the studio to drop a sports remix of their hit single “Alphabet Aerobics”, in which Gift of Gab traverses each letter of the alphabet at an increasingly alarming rate. Daniel Radcliffe famously rapped the song during an iconic performance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon”. In “Sports Alphabet,” more than 50 sports references have been integrated into 26 wild animation styles, one for each of letter of the ABCs.
Brand new video for Run The Jewels’ song “Rubble Kings Theme.”
This is some very cool animation and an amazing track. It follows a young woman named “Little Nina” as she walks the streets of New York and gets brutally attacked by a rival street gang. She goes to her own gang for protection and the result is animated warfare inspired by the pulp fun of movies like “The Warriors.”
Kinda heavy stuff in here. But like the song, the visuals go hard and without mercy. Nothing too crazy, so I hope y’all check it out and enjoy.
DeVille was no doubt influenced by Dre and how he repurposed P-Funk growing up in Los Angeles, but dude can seemingly reimagine whatever. He flips the Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody,” precisely chopping the hook. Pat Swayze was probably dirty dancing in his grave to that joint. Then he laces Aztec Two Step’s twangy folk guitars with quick hi-hats and bass drums, which will loosen your license plate holder from the trunk rattle, before layering with vocal samples from his library. If that Aztec beat ends up on somebody’s project in the near future, it would not be a surprise. It’s a shame he didn’t get a chance to work with James Taylor’s brand of blues-y folk rock. It seems like just a few clicks from DeVille and fire come through the speakers.
“Music binds us all together,” – Wale. The sounds of today collaborated with the voices of tomorrow. Watch as Wale and Metro Boomin work with the Highbridge Voices choir to record a brand new track on the spot.
This is so big. JD would love to have had this sit down with the great Mr. Jones. But for now he will just have to sit back and watch this. Check out this snippet of the sit down Kendrick had with the great Quincy Jones.
