Behind the Scenes: Joey Bada$$ and DJ Premier Prepare New Single

|


It is no secret Joey Bada$ is inspired by '90s golden era hip-hop. His debut mixtape 1999 (via Cinematic Music Group) showcased his love for the decade and the legends it spawned. When Green Label Sound heard about Joey's admiration for the legendary DJ Premier, we couldn't pass up getting these two together for a track.

The result out of DJ Premier's HeadQCourterz Studio is "Unorthodox," in title and execution. "Unorthodox" is a unique track that Joey dedicates to real hip-hop fans and his Pro Era collective. Get a sneak peek of the track in the video above. "Unorthodox" available for download January 14, 2013 from Green Label Sound.

"Unorthodox" Produced by DJ Premier will be available for download on January 14th, 2013 at GreenLabelSound.com

Rick Rubin: Music and Spirituality Mini Documentary

|

Rick Rubin: Music and Spirituality on Nowness.com.

Recording artist whisperer and all-around wizened sage Rick Rubin contemplates life and art on the stunning cliffs outside his Malibu residence in this short film by Alison Chernick. The mogul ruminates on living in harmony with nature, the importance of recreating its perfection in art, and the transcendental power of sound before leading us into a guided meditation, a practice he has followed since becoming fascinated with yogis as a teenager. His trademark beard, untouched since he was 23 years old, pays clear homage to their spiritual influence. The story of Rubin’s beginnings at Def Jam Records with Russell Simmons in 1984 from his New York University dorm room has become the stuff of legend. He has since become one of the most influential producers in the history of pop music, producing seminal hip-hop albums by artists such as LL Cool J, Run-D.M.C., and The Beastie Boys, with an unparalleled knack for genre-bending and critically acclaimed covers. He has also masterminded the late-career resurrection of a number of artists via American Recordings, exemplified by Johnny Cash’s victorious comeback. Add to that eight Grammy awards, being named one of Time’s most influential people in the world, and a co-presidency of Columbia Records, and Rubin has more than earned his magic reputation. “He is on a journey through the spiritual and creative wilderness,” says Chernick. “It’s transformative to witness.”

Reblog: Sabotage Times "Headwear you should have bought in 2012"

|

Below is a great article posted recently by one of my favorite blogs "Sabotage Times". Writer Felix Clark goes through 5 unusual hats that came out in 2012 that you should have bought if you had the money. Great article!!

1. Supreme x COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT 5-panel
This cap came as part of the Spring/Summer 2012 capsule collection, which included a button-down shirt, t-shirt, hoodie and two styles of Vans (the SK8-Hi and the Era). The fabric on the hat comes straight from COMME des GARÇONS’ extensive textile collection, but the stand-out feature has to be the reverse box logo. Up until now the only way for a Supreme 5-panel owner to appreciate their hat was to take a picture of themselves and put it on Tumblr for the world to see. Now they can just stand in front of the mirror and get lost in their own reflection. That can only be a good thing, right?
2. Indcsn x Dertbag “KILL” 5-panel
I know what you’re thinking and yes, it is a little out there, but everyone just needs to accept that tie-dye is back and putting “KILL” on a hat isn’t anywhere near as offensive as it first seems apparently. Remember that “Fuck you you fuckin’ fuck” t-shirt Bam Margera used to wear? That was offensive and Bam’s fat now, so there’s your lesson I guess. This cap came out at the back end of last summer, the product of a collaboration between UK-based brand, Indcsn, and tie-dye lovers, Dertbag Design. This is my favourite Indcsn hat I’ve seen so far and it’s been impossible to track down ever since. Seriously, good luck trying – and if you do find it I have PayPal.
3. Black Scale x New Era “Funeral Service” Snapback
If you’re into hip-hop, chances are you probably recognise this hat. It was one of many made popular by the self-proclaimed “Pretty Motherfucker” himself, A$AP Rocky, fitting in with the A$AP Mob’s penchant for wearing “all-black-everything”. This snapback dropped in December 2011, preceding the A$AP x Black Scale collaboration, which sold out in no time at all. The underside of the brim features a Jesus cross pattern and “BLVCK SCVLE” runs above the snaps around the back, but it’s the leather crown panel that adds an impeccable touch of class to the final product. A re-release on this year’s 4/20 (international Stop-What-You’re-Doing-and-Get-High Day) came with either “FUNERAL,” “SILENCE” or “BELIEVE” across the front – but guess what? No leather. No deal.
4. RIPNDIP “Nermal” Camp Cap
No-one needs to tell me this is the most garish hat they’ve ever seen – I’m well aware – but I think RIPNDIP deserve credit for actually pulling it off. The downtown LA-based brand saw a surge in popularity when a picture of Tyler, the Creator, sporting the 5-panel hat, found its way onto Tumblr, with the cap selling out around last Christmas. A quick scan through the RIPNDIP blog sees the brand rubbing shoulders with others in the wider circle of the Odd Future collective, including photographer, Sagan Lockhart, with whom we should expect to see a collab sometime in the vague and detail-less future. If the hat itself isn’t enough for you, RIPNDIP dropped the “Nermal” print button-down shirt on 1st May, at a limited run of 39 which have all sold out. Oh, and I looked up “Nermal” – apparently he’s some cute cat who made Garfield jealous when he became the focus of his owner’s attention… So that’s pretty cool.
5. SUR COMME des FUCKDOWN Snapback
Yet another of the A$AP Mob’s personal favourites, these prints have been getting a silly amount of attention from the blogosphere ever since they were worn in a few photo-shoots through late-2011/early-2012. In spite of the hype, the originals actually date back to 2007, when they were released under sub-label, The Cut, one ofRuss Karablin’s many little bits on the side. Karablin must be one of the most elusive designers in urban fashion, but if SSUR, Natural Born, Rebel Ape or the all-inclusive Iron Umbrella sound familiar, then chances are you’ve come across him before.
It takes something pretty special to turn a parody-based product into something you can take seriously, but the combination of Karablin’s knowledge of fashion and A$AP fans’ faith in their leader’s flawless taste is a potent mix. These caps haven’t actually sold out and are readily available at the SSUR Empire State webstore for a reasonable $40 – I’m not sure if it’s to do with the longevity of the brand or a lack of enthusiasm to look like an A$AP fan-boy, but I’m happy they’re still kicking around for now. Maybe I’ll spend that student loan after all.

The GQ+A: Kendrick Lamar

|
Kendrick is one of the most popular names in Hip Hop today and is truely moving the genre in a new direction. Although there are several interviews with the Compton emcee floating around the internet, I feel GQ's interview the below shows great insight into who Kendrick is as an artist. 


Walking through a crowd of people with Kendrick Lamar is, well, different. He's a celebrity, and people ask for pictures. They comment on how short he is in real life, try to hand off their personal mixtapes, and intrepid groupies still offer—read: throw—the things that groupies offer. In that regard, Kendrick's just like any of-the-moment hitboy. But the first thing people say, even the groupies, is how much they loved his album, good kid, m.A.A.d city. They quote lyrics, compliment his flow, and, of course, finish every sentence with Kendrick's trademark, "ya, bish." The Compton-raised introvert is a celebrity for the right reasons, and we love it.



GQ: First question: did your dad ever get his Domino's?
Kendrick Lamar: [Laughs] Nah.

GQ: Were those real scenarios?
Kendrick Lamar: All of those were real scenarios. The fact that I took my mother's car, that was real life. Being in a situation where you're young and a teenager and you don't really have respect for authority. You respect them as your mother and father, but sometimes when they lay some rules down, you break them. And that was one of those situations. Taking that car got me in a whole lot of different situations as a teen, that I tell in the stories. That's what that concept really represents: abusing the authority of losing his Domino's, losing his jewelry, anything else that he possessed that I felt like taking at the time.

GQ: I feel like rappers from LA have a bit of an inferiority complex. They have to represent the resurgence of West Coast hip-hop from the moment they get a little buzz. Did you feel that?
Kendrick Lamar: You know, it's crazy. From the moment I started writing raps, I was always aware of the pressure. I always wanted to live up to how huge Snoop got, how huge Dre got, how huge Pac got. I was always aware. But by the time I got [the pressure], it was a whole new story. When you get that attention, you really have to execute. That pressure turned into a little bit more excitement, a little more dedication in the studio.

GQ: How important has Dre been to you as far as a personal relationship and mentorship?
Kendrick Lamar: He told me all the mistakes I shouldn't make in this business, being a new artist. I'm in a position where a lot of dollars will be thrown my way, and it's up to me to maintain. One of the first things he told me was that anybody "can get a mansion." He said, "You can get it. It's nothing to get. You can get it tomorrow. The best thing to do is maintain it—that's the hardest thing. Keeping it."

GQ: In any of that advice, was he ever like, "Oh, and by the way, put your name on some headphones. That shit'll make you millions?"
Kendrick Lamar: [Laughs] No, no, he always told me that he ventured out beyond the music though.

GQ: Is Sherane a real person? Is her name Sherane?
Kendrick Lamar: Yeah, but her real name's not Sherane.

GQ: What is Sherane doing right now?
Kendrick Lamar: I have no idea. Hopefully she's doing good, you know, but karma is a bitch.

GQ: I assume she knows that you're doing, ya know, OK. Does that drive you any?
Kendrick Lamar: They watch the smallest things, from the YouTube video with 500 hits to the number-one single and gold album. The worst part of success is, to me, adapting to it. It's scary. Andre 3000 said, "I hated all the attention, so I ran from it." I think about that. The last six months, I've been going crazy, thinking, "Is it supposed to be like this?" Because when the cameras are on and the people are watching, that can make a person want to shut down from everything and everybody.

GQ: Who are the artists that you'd love to go toe-to-toe with, lyrically?
Kendrick Lamar: Jay-Z, Nas, Eminem, Rakim, Kurupt...

GQ: Right now, where do you think you stack up in that group?
Kendrick Lamar: I'm on their toes, for sure. I remember when I was a young buck listening to them, I was thirteen or fourteen going back to the albums and how crazy they were. They just have a little more experience than me. I wouldn't get in the studio with them and be nervous, I'll put it to you that way. I wouldn't be nervous.

GQ: The album is out and praised. What's next?
Kendrick Lamar: Visuals... When I call it a short film, I don't just call it that for the sake of the album. So that's a hint.

GQ: Are you going to act in it, star in it, direct it?
Kendrick Lamar: Directing for sure. I haven't really thought about starring in it... I can, because it is me and my life.

GQ: Let's say you weren't going to star in it and you could have anyone in the world, who would you have play yourself?
Kendrick Lamar: Anyone in the world? It would have to be somebody... there's one kid on The Wire, Tristan Wilds [who played Mike Lee].

GQ: Who would you have play your mom?
Kendrick Lamar: I probably get Taraji Henson.

GQ: Okay, okay. Sharane?
Kendrick Lamar: I would love to see Rihanna in my movie [laughs]. Looking at this cover right here, man.

GQ: How do you get better at rapping?
Kendrick Lamar: You really have to travel. I could have told you, "You've got to write every day." Of course you've got to do that. But you really have to get out and see different things. I can't stay in Compton. Things get redundant after a while; that's not the lifestyle any more. You've got to get out and travel.

GQ: People love the album and a lot has been written about it. Has anyone misconstrued parts of it?
Kendrick Lamar: A few people think that these stories are just different events throughout my whole life. That story is just one day, one full day. Some things that always happened throughout the days and throughout the weeks, but that was just one particular day that really turned my whole life around and I understood what I should be doing is something positive, which is music right now. They don't know me yet. They might think they know me, but they don't.
