  • BDTB Presents: DJ Ves 120 x Tomahawk Gang Music “Year Of The Gang” Release | @tomahawkhiphop

    We’re proud to present a compilation mix from Chicago-based Tomahawk Gang, which is a multi-track release mixed by Chicago’s Ves 120. There are tracks on this mix from the crew, which consists of ILL Brown, Maja 7th, Papi Jamon, Mike Schpitz, Waterr, Preach, Visual, Elementz Emcee, and others. Read more and listen below.

    Chicago. New York. LA. Las Vegas. Germany. They have been all over the place but one thing is for certain, they all have Hip-Hop in their blood. Tomahawk Gang Music started as the brain child of ILL Brown (from Chicago, now residing in San Diego) who had a vision of uniting Chicago artists. With groups and labels such as The Juice Crew, Wu-Tang Clan, and Roc-A-Fella giving the blueprint of how powerful a united front could be, he decided to make a change in Chicago Hip-Hop culture.

    With the help of artists such as AOK, Papi Jamon, DJ Ves 120, and Elementz Emcee, they gathered their talent and resources to make Tomahawk Gang Music. With the stable of artists ranging from Producers to Emcees to Engineers, they have become a self contained force that is ready for anything that the music world will bring. Sticking with the classic formula of beats to the rhyme, they have incorporated the old school and new school without compromising sound quality.

    With DJ Ves 120 on the wheels, Tomahawk Gang Music brings to you ‘Year Of The Gang’ Mixtape. This mixtape combines some of The Hawks current singles (Borders, Her, Jumpin In) and previously unreleased material to keep the speakers on blast.

    So be aware, Tomahawk Gang Music is here, and they’re about to make a big impact. It’s the Hawks…Sucka. #JoinTheGang

  • The Breakfast Club Interview w/ Kanye West (Video) | @kanyewest

    Kanye West is keeping his name bubbling in the internet with an interview he did today with The Breakfast Club.

    Normally I probably wouldn’t share such a video, but this lengthy interview really kind of delves into his thinking, how he works, his fashion, his growth as a musician, and has him talking about the importance of being an influence. It’s a very candid and somewhat politically correct interview; I think it’s more of a growth as an individual than him trying to appease anybody. I enjoyed it, and I appreciated his words about innovation and influence.

  • Psalm One Performs Live on Audiotree (Video) | @PsalmOne

    Shouts to Twitter. Browsing around a few minutes ago I saw this video pop up, which is a six-song live set from Psalm One and co, done extremely well. There’s more information about her and what you will see when you watch above, below. You can purchase the session here.

    Psalm One is a rapper groomed on the Chicago Southside whose style is aggressive and real. Fluffy, Psalm and Angel perform as a threesome of rapper chicks, throwing down background vocals and dancing their faces off to the band’s groovy tunes. Psalm is an ever-changing artist; she attacks each record with differing influences, different rhyming style and a full band. From Psalm to Zro Fox to Hologram Kizzie: it’s all Cristalle Bowen. Psalm is in your face, but whip-smart and willing to take on anyone who disagrees.

    According to her official bio she, “runs a successful youth mentoring program, Rhymeschool, and is currently promoting her latest album, FREE HUGS. Since 2006, Psalm has been truly doing it herself, with a handful of Chicagoans who truly believe in her amazing and unique talent. Once a chemist, always a chemist. Believe that.”

    Angel Davanport – Background Vocals
