With the help of DJ Wayne Ski & DJ Hollywood, Bumpy takes the artform back to it’s essence, circa the early 80s. Back to the basics.
This joint right here is a salute to the DJs before me. After having a conversation about Hip-Hop with Bumpy Knuckles I came up with cutting up Sing Sing Break Beat with Bumpy Knuckles spitting two turntables and a mic style. Shout out to DJ Hollywood on the intro. Big up to DJ Premier on the phone with the crazy drop. Classic!
Winter is on it’s way, and you know what that means. Time for that grimey rap to creep out of the gutters and onto the streets. Peace to Confidence & Ill Adrenaline Records. Cop the mp3 on iTunes.
Neek The Exotic is back with a blazing single taken off his upcoming full length “Hustle Don’t Stop” out later this year on Ill Adrenaline Records, the label that brought you the classic album by Rashad & Confidence. On his new album, Neek totally goes without any help by Large Pro on the boards/mic but with a bunch of other dope beatmakers like Confidence (of Rashad & Confidence), The Audible Doctor, Ras Beats, The Arcitype, Big Malk or Crazeology instead. Guest appearances include O.C., Sadat X, Satchel Page, Mayhem Lauren and a few more.
As promised, Out Da Box TV brings you Part 2 of our in-depth interview with DJ Premier & Bumpy Knuckles. This episode kicks off with a segment on the late and talented Gang Starr Emcee “Guru” where Bumpy Knuckles speaks on the effect that Guru had on lyricists like himself and others. We also shift in to the issue of Hip Hop not seeming to have respect for its past, as opposed to other genres of music who often pay homage to their elders / pioneers. As the interview continues, Premier takes the time to speak on his ability to maintain respect from both the underground and mainstream fans of his music, whether he does a pop record with Christina Aguilera or a Raw Rap record with an Underground Emcee. He even speaks on the possibility of producing a record for “Miley Ray Cyrus” and confident that the music would come out dope if they were to actually work together. In conclusion, Premier explains why it’s important for him to continue to support the underground artists of today despite his level of success in the mainstream and in music as a whole. The two veteran artists finish up with a list of their upcoming projects and future music to look out for. Word is that they’ll be dropping an actual Part 2 to their recently released collabo album “Kolexxxion” which is now available in stores along with an instrumental and acapella version, which can be each purchased separately. My Partner, “Alevel” and I had an extremely wonderful time building with such respected and great talent in hip hop. Much thanks to Preemo and Bumpy for taking the dedicated time to give us such a great interview. We hope you are inspired. Enjoy!
Out Da Box TV is proud to bring you a special new episode featuring the Legendary Hip Hop producer DJ Premier and veteran NY emcee Bumpy Knuckles. We got a chance to chat with the two recently at Premier’s NY music studio. They took the time to speak to us on a number of enlightening topics, with regards to the current state of hip hop and helping to progress the culture forward. Among other topics Bumpy and Premier also took a moment to talk about the origins of New York Hip Hop and the reasoning behind how it has lost its identity over the years. Pick up Premier and Bumpy’s new collabo album, Kolexxxion, which is available in stores now.
Freddie Foxxx (does he even go by that moniker anymore? Serious inquiry) and Primo drop a new set of visuals from their recent collaborative effort, KoleXXXion, which is out now. Props to the DJ Premier Blog.
Another #2dopePremier. No pun intended. For those of y’all who’ve been waiting for another Preme & Nas collab, well, besides that Berklee project, this is the closest we’ll get to a reunion until those two Generals are ready to get back in the studio. Off Bumpy’s KoleXXXion dropping next Monday. Also, those of you in NYC can hit up the official KoleXXXion release party on Monday at the Highline Ballroom. $15 tickets in advance, $20 at the door. Peace to Premo & DJ Eclipse.
Freddie Foxxx and DJ Premier’s oft-delayed collaboration project, KoleXXXion, is finally set to drop March 27th. Here’s a small preview of the project which, by the looks of this clip, ig going to be on some gutter shit.
There was a radio rip of this floating around earlier, but Gim got a hold of the CDQ. In case you ain’t heard, Preme & Bumpy are collaborating on an album dubbed KoleXXXion, and this is the official first single featuring Flava Flav. EDIT: This was actually a beat Busta Rhymes rejected. Hit the jump for a bonus EP sampler, StOoDiOtYmE (out March 5th on iTunes), an hors d’oeuvre before the official KoleXXXion drops March 27th.
