We were back in full effect tonight, closing out the month of May in a positive way with our Double Shot of our choice cuts from the last 31 days. The Big M pick was Elzhi's version of Represent (surprise, surprise...), since it is a very tall order to go in on one of DJ Premier's best beats and not be outshined by Nas' mastery on Illmatic. Check the URP Facebook group to download "Elmatic" for free, you will not be disappointed! 2Face Al selected "Random Call" by Random Axe (Sean Price, Guilty Simpson & Black Milk), which gets us amped for the June 14th release of the Random Axe LP!
We were then joined by a veteran producer and Grammy winner, Chin, who has put down production for a laundry list of Hip-Hop artists including K'Naan, Drake, The Clipse, Eminem, 50 Cent and countless more. Chin will be in town this weekend (June 4th & 5th), hosting a Hip-Hop Production Masterclass at The Nimbus School of Recording Arts. Register now and get input on your music from a true production genius! Vancouver has been hosting many conventions such as this recently, which are a great way to gain valuable experience about the music industry. Young artists listen up!
We were shoulders deep in good music tonight, bumping everything from Common to Saukrates, Random Axe to Classified, Souls of Mischief to Pharoahe Monch, so there was a little something for every Hip-Hop head!
