DJ MK AND ROOTS MANUVA - THE NEW ZEALAND INVASION











So if you don't know I'm currently down under, touring with Roots Manuva!! After a stupidly long flight (37 hours door to door)we arrived in paradise. New Zealand is one of the moist beautiful Countries in the world, with some of the most coolest, laid back people you could meet. We performed at the rhythm and vines festival, which was situated i a spot called Gisborne, which was a 45 min flight from Auckland, where we were based...

As you can see from the photos....we had to travel there in a 14 seater plane!!! Believe me, when u travel in a plane so small, you feel EVERY little bump!!

The show went amazing, set in the hills of a vineyard....the promoters even chartered a flight for us and all the other artists to fly back.... It was the a funny flight coming back, with the passengers made up of, ourselves, Moby, Diplo an Major Lazers, and various other rock bands...

Tonight is the big NYE party in Perth Australia!!!! FULLY SICK ( as the Aussies would say)

AZ – The Essence (rmx) f. Nas


Good to hear some new music from these 2. For me AZ and Nas is a sick duo, and every time these 2 get together it's heat.
Seven years ago he produced the original, now BabyPaul is back with the remix. Off his upcoming mixtape, Undaground Veteran 1.5, which should be dropping anytime now.

TI RELEASED FROM PRISON


WOW...THAT WAS QUICK..
1ST U GET THE MONEY...THEN U GET THE POWER...


Sources from Atlantic Records have exclusively confirmed with BET.com that T.I. has been released from prison. The news comes to a surprise to the entire industry as T.I. was slated to serve at least three more months at the Arkansas Forrest City prison.

The source from Atlantic Records confirmed with BET News’ Sharon Carpenter that the rapper was abruptly released from the facility and is currently in route to Atlanta to serve the rest of his time in a half way house.
Steve Sadow confirmed with XXLMag.com earlier this month that TIP might see an early release but would it was to be decided by the Federal Bureau of Prisons to decide the fate of the decision.
“Now it is up to the [Federal] Bureau of Prisons to decide whether someone should be placed in a halfway house prior to the projected release date,” Sadow told XXL. “The Bureau of Prisons can do that and typically does it either a month before, or two months before… as much as six months before the projected release date.”
Details on T.I.’s release are extremely sketchy at this moment, but check back with BET.com for more details on this story.

LONDON POSSE ON WESTWOOD 1996



This was recorded back in 1996, and was one of the last times we heard London Posse together. Rodney P and Bionic on fire as usual. Pity they had to split up. This must have been recorded round about the time i first met Rodney P, as he did some of these bars on one of my mixtapes from back in 96.

AL SHUX


This dude is a beast on the beats. He has his own sound, and one is the best producers in Hip Hop you've probably never heard of. His name is Al Shux, repping west London. He produced Lupe and Snoops "High Definition" Jay Z's Empire state of mind, and Sway's Lil Derrick. Get to know!!

Shout out to THHC


VIBE gets the skinny on the UK producer behind Jay-Z's first No. 1 solo record
VIBE: Tell me about the making of "Empire State of Mind." How'd you get it into Jay-Z's hands?
Al Shux: I had the basic backing track that I made about a year ago. Then I worked with two writers who wrote a song over the beat. We didn't write a bridge and were thinking it would be great to get a rapper on that part. Obviously, Jay-Z seemed like the perfect guy to do something like that. After playing the track to a few people in the industry it got to a guy called Big Jon [Platt], who is head of EMI Publishing and a close friend of Jay-Z. He took it to Jay-Z and he used the hook and re-wrote his own verses.
Did you help out with the hook at all?
Not really. I think the writers Angela Hunte and J'Nay Sewell did a great job.
Did you hear the finished song before it became a single?
Piracy is a massive concern for record labels and because I was in London they were hesitant to send me the finished mix over the Internet. So I didn't hear the finished mix until the album was leaked on the internet!
Have you spoken to Jay-Z or met him since Blueprint 3 dropped?
I actually only met him after the song was recorded. He's a really nice guy.
Did you work closely with Alicia Keys or speak to her during the making of the song?
The song was recorded in a few different places-at [Jay-Z's] studio, at [Alicia's]- so I didn't get to record either of them personally. But I did recently work with Alicia on another version of the song ["Empire State of Mind II"] for her album at her studio in Long Island.
Did you see Jay-Z perform the songs at the Yankees game and the World Series parade? How did you feel about the song getting to that level?
Yeah, I saw the performances. The first couple of times I saw it performed--at the Madison Square Garden show and the VMAs--were probably the most surreal. Since then, I've been amazed at how big it's gotten. I knew it was a great record but it's continued to grow and grow into something so huge. I think it's great that so many people can relate to it. Even though it is about New York on the surface, it is really about something more universal than that.
Have you gotten many requests for tracks since?
I've been meeting with a lot of A&Rs and seeing what projects are going on. I've been working with Rox (Rough Trade) and I Blame Coco (Island) on their debut albums. And I have lots of other projects in the pipeline. -Clover Hope
A West London native, Al Shux has been producing tracks since for nearly ten years. Before lacing Jay-Z's first no. 1 single--which Al says is getting heavy spins in the UK, too--the 27-year-old beatsmith got his first major look in 2007 on Lupe Fiasco's "High Definition," featuring Snoop Dogg.
