The new Gorillaz single, "Doncamatic", (named after a Japanese drum machine) is getting the video treatment.

Check out the song below, and stay tuned for video updates.



From Vibe Magazine...
Why did you decide to drop the GodLee Barnes LP as one long un-mastered song?

I started to really enjoy releasing songs on MySpace. I did that for about a year, and then it went to releasing short projects. I dropped a couple instrumental projects and the Her Favorite Colour mixtape online. Then Twitter started popping. With the GodLee Barnes LP, I just felt the raw energy of it because that was the original way I recorded it. That old school cassette feel felt right. I may release an official version of that in the future

Will you ever drop an official mixtape with a DJ?

We’re still wrapping mixing the record and getting our campaign together. There might be a mixtape coming. I’ve been talking to some real DJs about doing my first official mixtape. I definitely want to out my foot in that arena⎯show them how I would do it. You’ll definitely hear some random singles from me very soon.

You really seem to keep a low profile.

I definitely have this aura where I like to keep it low-key. I’ve always felt like an underground artist, and it was pretty easy to keep it that way in a sense because that’s where I was established and my comfort zone is. But with the Internet, I’m able to keep my presence without any major radio or TV play.

How did you get down with Lupe’s supergroup, All City Chess Club?

I talked to Lupe on the phone about the crew. He’s the head honcho with All City Chess Club. He really just gave me call on the random one day [laughs]. For some reason, I thought it was Bilal. But we chopped it up for a while. And a little while later he shot me the “I’m Beaming (Remix)” to get on there. I’m still waiting and wanting to lay some verses with them. I’m definitely down with recording an album.

Man for such an admittedly-regularly-inebriated dude, Curren$y works hard. He's already got his 2nd album, Pilot Talk II, finished and ready to drop November 22. Check out the most recent teaser below.

Peace.

Alright, it's Friday night and the entries are in.

Technically, both of these people are winning the same prize, but I'm gonna go ahead and name them 1st and 2nd place based on when they sent in their entries. They both win a set of two tickets to the Secret Sound Festival for Saturday, October 30th (that's tomorrow!) so they can kick off their Halloween festivities right.

First place goes to Mike Votaw, who claims to have spent 4 hours on photoshop in order to kick this badboy out the first day of the contest. Check him out below with the band Spelling Bee dressed up like a whole bunch of Robocops standing by as bearplanes (awesome) destroy the city. (Sidenote: it's interesting that the polar bear shoots lasers while the grizzly spits fire. I would have thought it more sensible for a polar bear to have evolved the fire power to keep warm out on the ice. Hm.)


Second place goes to Karyn Light for her postcard from Castle Frankenstein. How nice of the angry villagers who live below the castle to mass market a souvenir item that bears the image of her with the group Scripts 'N Screwz (although she herself doesn't appear to have been prepared for the photo-op.). It's a surefire way to increase tourism to an area so wracked with misfortune.


Hopefully everybody enjoys the festival tomorrow. If you didn't participate this time around, be sure to catch the next official Waitin for the DJ contest and/or giveaway. Stay posted on Facebook or Twitter (links to both are up on the top of the web page) and of course www.WaitinForTheDJ.blogspot.com (soon to be www.WaitinForTheDJ.com!).

Peace.

Damon Albarn (frontman of Gorillaz/The Good the Bad and the Queen/Blur) is the ringleader of "the biggest band on the planet." Coincidentally, Paul Simonon (bassist of Gorillaz/The Good the Bad and the Queen/The Clash) began his career as 1/4 of the then-"most important band in the world."

Here, both of them sit down to discuss seemingly random facts and aspects of the Gorillaz show, music, and more. Check it out below.

Rome is back with another hot St. Louis album. Here's what he has to say about his newest project:
THE NEW ALBUM FROM INDIANA ROME “WHO THE HELL LEFT THE GATE THE GATE OPEN”. WITH FEATURES FROM ST. LOUIS VETS LIKE ROCKWELL KNUCKLES, TEF POE, AND HAKEEM THA DREAM AMONGST A FEW. THE ALBUM ALSO HAS PRODUCTION FROM TRIFECKTA, BLACK SPADE, TECH SUPREME, VEGA HBK, BUT MAJORITY OF THE PROJECT WAS ORCHESTRATED BY INDY HIM SELF. ENJOY!
As well as the new NERD album, Pusha T signing to GOOD Music, and a tall grandma couch.

According to Pharrell, they don't really "talk about [the CRS project] that much." However, Lupe did say recently that if the fan desire was present, they would move forward. I think Pharrell is probably closer to the truth on this one.


...probably in an effort to springboard a "comeback"?

The track, called "Better Run Run", drops on Halloween. (Catch the teaser vid below.)

Please Hammer, don't hurt em!




Hey there folks. Got a brief update in regards to the contest for free tickets for the Secret Sound Festival this Saturday.

If you've been watching the blog over the last two days, you may have noticed that the qualifications for entry to the contest changed dramatically. However, in an effort to be vague and mysterious, I'm not going to elaborate. If you saw the original rules, then you're super lucky and cool.

That being said, the first winner is Mike Votaw.

Hooray!

There are still two tickets left. Do whatever you feel is necessary to win them. And look at this!



(EDIT: Alright, so I realized it's really short notice and a lot of you folks are super lazy like me, so the contest just became super simple. Go win!)

The Secret Sound Festival is coming and it's going to be huge. Cherokee Street in St. Louis will be run amok with bands, fans, and crazy folks (more than usual) for two days straight. Here's your chance to win tix to take part in the hysteria on Saturday.

All you have to do is follow WaitinForTheDJ on twitter (http://twitter.com/WaitinForTheDJ) and email in a screenshot to prove it! We'll choose two folks at random. EMAIL YOUR SUBMISSIONS TO MikeGSince1987@gmail.com NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29TH AT NOON!

Be sure to include:
  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • Your twitter name
Two winners will be selected by and announced on Friday the 29th. Each winner will receive two tickets good for Saturday, October 30th. So kick your Halloween week off right, follow a new page, and win some free tickets!

Damn, I didn't know Stalley had joined Center Edge Territory. Looks like Mighty Mos might be in the works of assembling a team that could rival Lupe's All City Chess Club.

Thoughts?

Catch (what exists of) the full "Flashing Lights" video below, followed by a preview of the "Runaway" video after that.




After being shunned from MTV's hot list once again, Wasalu took to the internet to vent his frustrations with the once-respectable media outlet early this morning. Not really sure if he actually believes the musical Illuminati stuff though.

Oh snap…MTV (illuminati’s favorite network) back on the attack…why can’t y’all just chill out? Salacious banality @ the speed of light? I think I’ve been very good natured with you. I personally know several employees of your company. You guys know me as well. I’m confused. Where is the true music journalism??? where is Suchin?!! What happened? Where are the honest critiques of cultural expression? For it’s not about being RIGHT it’s about being HOT Fame over self-awareness and virtue Hedonism over self respect Celebrity over cerebral. A destroying force in our culture and society just like rest of the useless vapid spectacles that pour out of our tv’s and radios.

What are we supposed to be learning from you? What is your point? Do you have a point beyond corporate sponsored distraction? Your a materialistic shell of your former self that can only identify with celebrity pageantry and instant gratification. Corporate garbage pushing plastic lifestyles and wasteful, destructive behavior into the brains of the youth of the world. So when your relevance thins in2 a whisper & the stock price collapses and you have 2 come 2 grips with the mess you made. I’ll be here 4 ya. We’ll be here. With hands full of baby powder 2 smack some sense back into your body & a warm shoulder to cry on. We want the REAL MTV back!

WuWednesdays is the new GOOD Fridays.


Message
“No man is a true believer unless he desireth for his brother that which he desireth for himself.” Muhammad

Song
This weeks song is entitled “Visions”. Its by a group called Outlines, featuring me. The song is about world peace thru us taking individual responsibility for our actions and us helping save to others once we have saved ourselves.

Being out here in China and seeing the growth of our culture in their world and seeing how their culture influenced my world led me to choose this song. We all so much on the same path as individuals only separated by language and custom and location. And the negative forces that strive to keep us apart by fabricating false images of each other. Well the RZA and Outlines have a vision for a better world.

The Outlines are a group out France whom I’m co producing. You will be hearing more from them. Peace!

Black Thought is the ultimate “emcee.” Ask anybody who is a fan of hip hop and chances are they will note that this man embodies what a true emcee is. Usually one to sneak under the radar when the “best of all time” talk comes up, Black Thought is not one to tell you how good he is, make videos about it, and then rap more about it. Instead, he presents his raw skills, his talent, and his words. All of it speaks for itself. A large piece of the puzzle that is The Roots, Black Thought’s words inspire, but never expire. Transcend, but never depend. Thought provoke, but never choke. In true poetic form, Tariq Trotter is the silent assassin with a knack for attacking the microphone in just about anyway. With his variety of spot on on-stage impressions and raw energy, Black Thought was more than a worthy candidate to be the headlining act for Manifesto 2010, alongside DJ J Period. Together, they presented their Live Mixtape: Illadelph Edition.


J Period is no stranger to Toronto, and no stranger to large festivals. He took to the stage in Brooklyn and presented this unique idea of a “Live Mixtape.” Picture taking one of your favourite mixtapes from back in the day; you had a variety of classics back-to-back song-after-song. In Toronto, J did this and played a variety of classics, but brought Black Thought along. Surely, you’ve heard “Boom” where he impersonates Big Daddy Kane and Kool G Rap to a T. Or how about his one-man onslaught of “Protect Ya Neck”? The chemistry between this DJ and this emcee was purely magic on the stage of Manifesto 2010’s Main Event. The crowd in attendance witnessed a performance to remember.

Rapping over beats such as Foxy Brown’s “Oh Yeah,” Damian Marley’s “Welcome to Jamrock,” and Drake’s “Forever,” BT would freestyle, recite past rhymes, or mimic the original artists. “Put him over any beat, I don’t care what beat […] he can hold his own,” says J. Period of Black Thought. And the respect is mutual, “I came to do this just on the strength of J. Period saying ‘I’m trying to do this joint.’ […] I appreciate J. Period’s hustle. He’s dedicated and he goes in. Once he has a vision, he’s gonna see it through to fruition.” Even though each artist is busy with their own projects and appearances, the back-and-forth chemistry on stage was truly natural.

The performance on stage could simply be a reflection of what was going on in front of the stage; “I love the way it’s going down, ya’ll are so hip hop in Toronto, I love ya’ll,” said an energetic Black Thought during his performance at Manifesto. J. Period further emphasized this, “You couldn’t do this show like this in the States, it has to happen [in Toronto]. I think that’s one of the reasons why it is one of [Black Thought’s] favourite places to come. The energy is great.” Continuing with the T Dot love, Thought claims “This is a hip hop town. And every artist that you guys have produced, and has taken the world by storm, has been dope.”

The video here, shot marvelously by the Manifesto Team, shows some live footage of Black Thought and J. Period performing their Live Mixtape at Dundas Square for the Manifesto Main Event. Check the movement.

The long, hot summer is over here in St. Louis, but this Reflection Eternal jam brings back that scorching feeling.




Another oldie-but-a-newie from Cee-Lo Green.


Off the Turn Off The Radio Vol. 4: Revolutionary But Gangsta Grillz mixtape with DJ Drama.
British MC Theophilus London was kind enough to drop this verse from Blu. It was originally recorded for his I Want You mixtape.

Gary, Indiana rapper G-Scott brings you the finest Sonic-themed track since Charles Hamilton's sweetest wet dream. This is not one to pass on.









DOWNLOAD "SKY LIFE" BY G-SCOTT HERE

A friendly message from G-Scott himself:
The new track came about as a result of hip hop site, The Smoking Section's want for someone to sample video game soundtracks one of which was Sonic The Hedgehog's "Robotnik Theme" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMlM0-E5CjA
After hearing the sample I went to work chopping it up and putting together the below song entitled "Sky Life". There will be a special version of the song featured on my upcoming mixtape later but for now he is something new before the EP...Enjoy.

It's a double whammy today in the realm of St. Louis hip-hop. Two huge videos dropping at the same time?? A true hip-hop double feature. Catch the first (Black Spade's "Runnin and Gunnin") and then check this bad boy out.

This one especially is like a who's who of St. Louis hip-hop, including a large portion of the Force collective. Another 10 points to whoever can list us all.

Peace.

Although they (CRS) recently dropped “Don’t Stop” as part of Yeezy’s G.O.O.D. Friday series, Lupe maintains the future of the project is at the mercy of fans.When MTV News caught up with the Chicago lyricist in New York last weekend, he said the trio is gauging the feedback to their music and will then decide whether to forge ahead with new tracks.
If people really want it, then we’ll do it,” Lupe said. “But if the demand is not there, it’ll just be as we get to it.

Another GOOD Fridays release (which dropped on a Saturday).


Enjoy.
Peace.
While Kanye's new artwork gets banned, Kid Cudi's gets its first public display. Look for Man on the Moon II very soon.

Looks Kanye's new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, will be needing new artwork before its release next month. Check out the banned cover below.

The 9Ball crew has a new project we are very excited about. Scrub and M.A. Double have teamed as the Super Delegates and deliver their debut album, 'Too Big to Fail.' They collaborated previously on Scrub's solo album.

The Super Delegates aim to create cohesive albums comprised of innovative lyrics and progressive soundscapes. Scrub (lyrics) and M.A. Double (beats) use their shared ecclectic influences to ignore convention and deliver an original sound.

Scrub and M.A. Double have been collaborating for years and experimenting with elements of blues, funk, garage and soul melded within a hip-hop framework. The album shifts smoothly from the rapid-fire delivery of songs such as "Thriller" and "If It's Got a Bad Taste..," to the funk-laden "Tightrope" and gritty "Six Feet Away." The Super Delegates offer inspired material created with a respect for the listener. For more information, please visit : www.NineBallEnt.com

The Super D's debut album will be released on 10.26.10. You can stream the album at superdelegates.bandcamp.com.
The Money Makin Jam Boy is back.

Cutlass Reid is back with another visual as he is putting his finishing touches on his "One Day At A Time" EP. This time Cutlass borrows Outkast's "Synthesizer". The video is directed by SoulSparx (Samuel Rogers & Shon Parker). Please stay tuned from a whole lot more from the Norfolk, VA emcee.

The title of the record is called, "What You Know About," Feat. Slot-A, Mike Schpitz & Drunken Monkeee. The project consists of newly invented concepts and rhymes by myself (and others featured on it i.e. Add-2, Slot-A, Ang 13, etc.) over historic production by the Legendary Pete Rock. This project is sponsored by DJBooth.Net (www.djbooth.net), Fake Shore Drive (www.fakeshoredrive.com), Refined Hype (www.refinedhype.com), Prefix Mag (www.prefixmag.com), and YNotMyDream (www.ynotmydream.net).

Earlier this week Skillz linked-up with media team, Visually Inklined, and decided to take matters in his own hands and film his rendition of BET's "The Cypher". We all know the ghostwriter for his endless, witty punchlines throughout the years, which automatically makes him an ideal candidate for "The Cypher". Apparently, Stephen Hill (Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programming for BET) thinks so as well.

From RZA himself...

“2 Left Shoes” features R n B singer “Truth Hurts” and Rev. William Burk – its a demo we did this summer. I want to share with you Wu-Disciples before it gets into final form.

Verse one is about fake friends who I showed love to throughout the years yet they continue to stab me in the back and take my love and kindness for a weakness. Verse 2 explains how the true and living god put love above all things for love conquers all.

The hook states ” loving you is like wearing two left shoes”. I choose it because I am a man who loves unconditionally yet that love sometimes is difficult to handle or live with or simply to wear.

From Wasalu (aka Lupe Fiasco):
I want my music to sound like somebody chasing you through the forest with ax. That's what I want my music to sound like. Like somebody chasing you through the woods with a chainsaw. What does the soundtrack to that? "Heirplanes," video okay. Let's chase somebody through the woods with a chain saw.

The other part to it was spreading the message. If you listen to the record, the whole record is about social justice. It's about social change, but in a very vehement, almost violent kinda way. Where I think you should be violently peaceful as possible. You should be as vehemently peaceful and notoriously peaceful as you can in the same way some people are just violently violent or violently war-like.

That was just kinda like my ideology for the record, for the album, for the songs. It needs to be as energetically peaceful the same way people are energetic about negativity. People are very energetic and vehement about giving you negative things. They're very clever and witty about giving you the most negative most destructive thing from alcohol to cigarettes to what have you. It's very clever. Very energetic. But at the end of the day, it's something that's gradually destroying you.

That was kinda like our premise. That kinda bleeds into different parts, iInto videos, photos and different parts of the album. So specifically for "Heirplanes," it was just kinda like, ‘Let's have the setting like an old horror movie or something like, something kinda real cheesy, hokey.' We're chasing these people, and on the surface it's like, ‘Yo why you chasing these girls through the woods? Are you trying to like kill these girls? Are you trying to kidnap these girls? What is this?' It's like, ‘No, we're trying to change the world.'

The whole song "Heirplanes" is about no monarchy. No real need to question the people who are in power or the techniques and the tactics that they use. If you go through and start listening to the lyrics and break down the hook and different stuff like that, its kinda questions the authority of what's going on.

That's why we're chasing these girls through the woods. It's like that's the point. It may seem as not as direct as saying that, but it's like, I got somebody's attention because we're chasing these girls through the forest. Now that I got your attention, ‘Do you really know what your congressman is doing?'

It's just like that artistic thing, but less on a message thing and more on an art thing.It was just kinda like, ‘I want my music to sound like chasing somebody through the woods with a chainsaw.'

It's almost as if Lupe realized that the BET cyphers were dope, but he knew he could do something nicer. (Kinda like when he saw that the MTV lyricist list was nice, but he wasn't on there so he dropped the Enemy of the State Mixtape and left everybody floored.)










The official All City Chess Club remix of "I'm Beaming" (which they've chosen to call "We Beamin") features the whole crew: Asher, Lupe, Charles Hamilton (in the making of something like a come-back), both Cool Kids (as featured in Travis Barker's new track/video, "Drop Down"), Blu, Diggy (as seen in the Dynasty Cypher - in which he uses the same damn line "only 15 but my 16 is strong", but no hate), Dosage, and B.o.B.

Enjoy that shit.
(If it's anything like the Child Rebel Soldier project, you won't be getting another track for around two years.)
...Speaking of which, did you catch that new one that got forcibly taken off the blog yesterday? Sorry if you missed it. Just google it.

Peace.

Hella 90s.
From T. Barker's upcoming album, Give the Drummer Some.


Easily two of the hottest cyphers put down (on BET and elsewhere), the GOOD Music cypher and the Ice Cube/Rev Run and family cypher (which I'm callin the Dynasty cypher) from the most recent BET Hip Hop Awards are cold (no cube pun intended).

Check them out below and rate em. Who spit the strongest 16? Which of the kids was nicest? Was it any coincidence that the GOOD Music cypher was framed by Kanye and Common so that nobody would switch it off in the middle? (Not hating, just noticing.)

Just a lil clip of the intro.

This Friday was supposed to play host to a fan-lead protest in favor of Lupe Fiasco's latest project, Lasers. The album, which has been finished for the better part of two years, had previously been tabled by Atlantic Records. Lupe's fans weren't having that.

However, before the "protest" could go down, Atlantic appears to have caved to the pressure (or the threat of pressure), and announced an official release date and official single drop for the album.

From Lupe's official site...
Lupe Fiasco's much-anticipated new album "Lasers" hits stores and online Tuesday, March 8th 2011. The first single will premiere on Tuesday, October 26th right here on LupeFiasco.com first! #GenerationLasers you ready? Let's go!
I caught the Chalk Boys randomly before a Black Spade show a little while back and was seriously blown away by their stage show. It was like the weirdest combination of John Belushi and Lil Wayne in the best way possible.

If you haven't checked these two dudes out yet, now's your chance. They've got a new project dropping next month (called Chalk Dirty to Me) and just dropped a new single to get you ready for it.

Check it out below and download it for sure.

The Gorillaz - who are currently in the midst of the US leg of a world tour - just dropped a new single called "Doncamatic (All Played Out)", featuring Daley.

Does this mean the G-team is working on a new album already? Or is this just a b-side from Plastic Beach that somebody thought would make some money? Remember, about 5 years passed between the releases of their 1st album (Gorillaz) and their 2nd (Demon Days), and just around another 5 between Demon Days and their 3rd album (Plastic Beach). If they're already preparing to kick something out - and if this hypothetical new project is anywhere near as enjoyable as their other 3 efforts - the world should be thankful.

Anyway, check out the new single below and drop a comment to let me know what you think. Personally, it's a bit on the poppy side for me, but that seems to be the direction towards which they've been gradually floating for some time. (That's a Plastic Beach pun...get it?)





Tef Poe has been on a tear recently with solid performances and releases. That being said, so have Theresa and Rockwell...and all the Force crew really.

Damn, you better not be missing this. It's a 21st century Wu-Tang-style takeover. First St. Louis, then the world.

Another GOOD Friday drop from Kanye, on the heels of the announcement of his new album title (catch that HERE).















Yeezy hit Twitter to reveal the final details on his new album, which will be called (drum roll please) My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Looks like he's finally broken away from the college theme for album titles.

He also reveals the status of the leaked tracks, the first/next single, and what role the GOOD Fridays tracks will play on the final product.

[Be sure to catch footage of Kanye live on SNL with Pusha T after the Twitter shots.]






(Props to Semtex for the Twitter screenshots.)

Dude over at Beats & Bombs pointed out how huge Eminem's video budget must be.
