Big tings. Next Wednesday September 24th, Cee and Notion open for the Australian MCs who essentially single handedly kickstarted the local scene - Hilltop Hoods! The boys are stoked to have the opportunity so if you're in Montreal, get down to Cabaret Underworld EARLY SON. Doors at 7pm, show at 8pm sharp! Evenko don't play.
So here's the first official video from the Shady and Nickel collab album, Bad Meets Evil. I fucks with it. Kinda corny for Royce but I guess he's gotta get that money. Should be insane either way.
I ain't even blogged about this yet, but we got another supergroup on our hands. Random Axe is Black Milk, Sean Price and Guilty Simpson, and the fellas done dropped a video for 'The Hex', their first single from their self-titled album. Shit is as you would expect from these cats. Keen as for the album.
There's been a fair bit of noise about Em's interview on 60 Minutes, so here it is. Peep the info after the jump. PS. Apologies for the lack of posts. A3C has kicked our ass, but has been the best experience of our careers thus far. We'll do a proper wrap up in the coming days, we just winding down in ATL for a bit.
'CBS’ “60 Minutes” chronicled Eminem’s rise from being bullied in school to becoming the biggest-selling artist of the decade. Journalist Anderson Cooper followed Em to Detroit, visiting his old 8 Mile stomping grounds, an underground club where he battled, his private recording studio, and one of his sold-out concerts at Detroit’s Comerica Park.
Marshall Mathers told Anderson how he stores all his lyrics on notepads (aka “stacking ammo”), not being interested in meeting his father, refraining from using profanity in his house, being two hours away from dying of a drug overdose, and commencing with his first stadium show since being sober.
Em hopes his story can help others weather the storm. “If I can help people that have been through a similar situation, then why not?” he said.'
For a free release of supposed 'leftovers' this is better than 90% of releases in 09'! Not much needs to be said of El's first class lyricism, but look out for some very nice beats by the Black Milk, Jake One and DJ Dez. Nice to see DJ Spinna back on the production credits too!
Listen for the dope electric guitar sample utilised by Oh No on 'The Great'
