GET HIP! W/DJ MOS PRECIOUS

[VIDEO] TANK THE MACHINE- Ooouuu Freestyle – Get Hip W/DJ Mos Precious

TANK THE MACHINE

Not a product of his crime invested, St. Louis neighborhood Walnut Park. Midwest lyrical beast has points to prove. One the only artists that can spit over a legendary song and make it more unique. No napping exist in this young talent’s body, long hours of writing and perfecting his craft, Tank the machine is coming to take over.

Fresh out the Nyne2fyve’s  studio, he said Young M.A.’s let me spit some dopest on your breakout record. He takes a popular track and adds is one in a million juicy sauces all over this track. As this song marinates, his is prepping for upcoming shows and a new project. He has a story and you can trust he will recite it in every verse he writes.

Overcoming losing his good friend, Darren “King D” Seals back in September. You can believe that his passion is fueled with the spirits of King D blended with the pure talent that resonates within him.

It is a must for me to add my personal interactions with this talented brother. We have vibed out on many occasions, he has performed at my events and has shown support after many attempts to reach out to me. I appreciated him for being determined and consistent with his musical strive. It is now transpiring in the way you only dreamed.

Salute to you, Tank the Machine

 Look out for The Tank Machine!!

[Video] Kain- Armageddon, Why Not? – Get Hip W/DJ Mos Precious

 Callmekain.com 

Kain is not a fresh face in the music scene. Hauling from Pantego, North Carolina, he is a socially driven hip hop mega star. His music does not reflect the music that is coming out today. Kain’s music is highly inspired by the 90’s and you can surely agree when you get a wiffle of his bars and style of flowing.

A young and bright fella, who has a purpose to ignite all his listeners with their own flames of success. He created Enoch Coalition LLC, and has huge plans in the works for his company.  I have personally met Kain and I am amazed with the energy that you can feel while in his presence. He is very mindful of the social influences that takes place in the day to day operations around the world.

I want to take this time to walk down memory lane with you guys to tell you how Kain and I met. It is only right to give you guys the scoop, right! He is a performer and I have watched him shut down stages on many occasions in the Midwest. He is surely a talented brother that you should support and keep in tune with.

Recently, he released his new song [Armageddon] from his schedule to drop on Friday, December 16th, 2016. Kain’s new EP titled [Black: A Story Told by Kain] is piece art blended with tones you can not live without. I am surely looking forward to what he has cooking on this project.

Watch [Armageddon] Today!

[INTERVIEW] Savant Aka Stanstro- A Lyrical Veteran?- Get Hip w/DJ Mos Precious

That’s right! It’s Time to Get Hip with DJ Mos Precious #RealMVP

I want to express the first time I interacted with this Chicago Native was via social media, with a strong network in this area, he was introduced to me through word of mouth. I was determined to meet him to I made a special trip to a show shaped around him and his return to his hometown [TheChicagoBar], which took place at the same place #Thebestdayparty – [@SicSundays] takes place.

With the presence of a veteran lyrically, Savant aka Stanstro surely owned the stage he is building for himself. He surely demanded my attention, I am pretty sure he can capture urs as well from Chicago all the way to where he resides now in Los Angeles.

MP: Can you tell our readers a little about yourself? What’s your name and where are you from?
Savant aka Stanstro — From: Austin, Chicago, IL — Current residence: Brentwood, Los Angeles, CA
MP: Let us know what your social media is. How can we find you?
GET HIP WITH SAVANT HERE
@SavantRAREBREED for all social media and music platforms
MP: How did music come about in your world?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: My dad signed up three of my brothers and me for piano lessons when I was 8 years old (my brothers were ages 9, 8, and 4). After 2 years of that, my dad gave us the option to either continue playing the piano or switch to another instrument. Not playing an instrument wasn’t an option, so I chose saxophone. He thought I’d be a better fit for trumpet, so he ignored my selection and mandated that I play the trumpet. After 3 years of private lessons he enrolled all of us into one of Chicago’s premiere music conservatories, wherein we all took weekly courses ranging from instrumental performance, to vocal performance, to music theory and composition, to music history, to jazz improvisation. We were enrolled there until we graduated from high school. It’s almost 2017 now, I still play trumpet, and I resumed playing the piano in 2003. Somewhere in the middle of all of that, I fell in love with rap, both as a listener and artist, thanks primarily to Mos Def and his “Black On Both Sides” album.
MP: What do you find most challenging about the music industry? most complicated?

SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: I’m currently self- managed, so the largest challenge has been balancing my creative impulses with “the business side” of everything. It’s easy for me to find a common ground in the realm of artistry with anyone whom I decide is a viable collaborative partner. Finding a common ground amongst “the numbers”, if you will, is more difficult because more often than not, those conversations are had with actual music managers, agents, etc. Frankly speaking, their interests don’t always align with their artists’ interests.

MP: Tell me about some of the people you’ve met while performing? some of the people you wish to meet during your journey?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: Most notably, I’ve met Yasiin Bey (though, he was known as Mos Def at the time), Rodney Jerkins, Mike Elizondo, Amel Larrieux, Kool G Rap, Pharoahe Monch, Phonte Coleman, Royce Da 5’9″, The Alchemist, and Rahsaan Patterson. I’d like to meet Tariq Trotter, Amir Thompson, Julian Petty, Reggie Ossé, Omar Creadle, Brad Jordan, Dr. Dre, D’Angelo, Just Blaze, Erykah Badu, George Maple, and Faith Newman. Would’ve loved to have met Prince also, but… *shrugs*.
MP: What do you do when you aren’t  recording or rehearsing your music?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: A few things. I’m an executive recruiter for Michael Page. I’m a trumpet player (and sometimes pianist, vocalist, and composer) with a jazz combo called Quatro and a few freelance credits. And I’m a score writer with 2 web series credits, and a 3rd on the way.
MP: How do you keep coming up with dope music? Any inspirations?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: At the risk of sounding cliché, life serves as my inspiration. Every day brings a new level of and a new reason for excitement, and it’s been that way for me since I was 16. As long as that’s the case, there’ll always be something to write about. As long as I have something to write about, there’ll always be music to make. In addition to that, I’m from a family of terrific musicians, so my competitive urge always remains high. I’ve a slew of younger siblings who really enjoy hearing my work. And I’ve always been fortunate to work with a murderers row of producers and fellow emcees. Dope begets dope.
MP: What has been the most challenging moment in your career and why?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: I went through a depression of sorts from mid 2013 to late 2014. Most of my favourite emcees find solace in their writing during that sort of experience, but my depression also ushered in a massive writers’ block. My inability to write left me unable to create, which only added insult to injury.
MP: Do you have anyone that has influenced you in your career? Who and Why?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: Artistically speaking, I don’t think anyone has pushed me to expand my boundaries (in terms of sound/production) and get out of my comfort zone more than Marathon Jon. Vocally, my approach has become progressively more melodic over the years, and I’ve begun incorporating more singing into my hooks and bridges. I owe that to Sha Basso. My writing, from a technical/stylistic standpoint, has become progressively more diverse, and I owe that to Black Thought, Royce Da 5’9″, Pharoahe Monch, and Lupe Fiasco. My choice in content is primarily influenced by my parents, my siblings, my niece and nephews, and Therese Hollywood. The increased depth/exploration of that content can be tied to Charity Clay, Landon Wordswell, Segun Dent, and Joe Budden.
MP: Where do you see yourself in the next couple of years?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: Standing next to Marathon Jon and 3KubeBeats collecting a Grammy (or four) for our slowly fermenting (and likely my final) LP.
MP: Is the anyone you would like to give a shoutout to?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: Aside of yourself? Marathon Jon of Peerless Recording Group. Nerdy Rotten Scoundrels and the squadron. Mrs. Cory Howard. P1 and the Sic Sundays staff. Cam Wesley, and Royce Omar. Jess Leo. Vic Spencer, and Johari. Pugs Atomz, and Iridium. Sincerely Yours. Awdazcate. Ill Legit. Tony Baines. Kevin Winston. Risky. Elvy Smith, and Fredri Couture. Dee Jackson, and the ’80s Babies. JayCee. Segun Dent. Lorrin Cash of Read Up Chicago Magazine, and Jen Martinez. Sin, Preast, and Q of Carte Blanche. Charity Clay. DJ A-Ron. DJ 456. Shala. Kali Kennda. JR, and Birdy. Drew Rogers, Shel Jones, and Pete Mischenko. emphis, and Simon Simelli. DLC. Ben Owens of 100% Hood. BK, and Jessica Rae. Rae Hendry. Monica Jean. S. J. Gardner. Derek Passmore, and Mischa Cantu.

Everyone who contributed to #IEM, whether via verse, hook, beat, art, or any other capacity. And Therese Hollywood.
MP: Anything else you want to drop on us before we get out of here? Any Breaking News or Exclusives?
SAVANT AKA STANSTRO: New music (“Rock With We” single, #IEM project, and “Rock With We”/”Bar Enrichment” music video) slated to drop before the year ends via Peerless Recording Group, Nerdy Rotten Scoundrels, and Power 102 Jamz.

[INTERVIEW] P-Butta Got Flows?- Get Hip w/ DJ Mos Precious

Its Time to Get Hip with DJ Mos Precious #RealMVP

I want to express the first time I watched this talented brother rip the stage was in Bloomington IL a few months back and he surely was wild’n out! I am hard critic when it comes to music and I must say P-Butta didn’t hide any bread and butter when it gets on the stage! I am pleased and overwhelmed with excitement to bring P-Butta to you guys first! Originally born in Chicago Heights, but spread his wings, in Bloomington IL. He definitely needs your attention.

MP: Can you tell our readers a little about yourself? What’s your name and where are you from?

P-Butta: I was born Lionell Mahan. My stage name is P-Butta. It was given to me by one of my cousins. I was born in Chicago Heights and raised in Bloomington, IL.

MP: Let us know what your social media is. How can we find you.

MP: How did music come about in your world?

P-Butta: I started music from simply being a fan first. My momma used to get all the latest mixtapes from corner stores in Chicago, me listening to the radio and watching music videos. I would rap or sing the songs like they were my own. Until I decided I wanted to make music of my own.

MP: What do you find most challenging about the music industry? most complicated?

P-Butta: Breaking through is the most challenging. Trying to be heard out of the 1,000 plus odd artists that are already out. But once you get through its best on focusing on what works for you. The most complicated is that this game is fickle. There’s no honesty or loyalty in it. People try to get over on you, hassles over money and can turn your friends into enemies. I try my best to refrain from that.

MP: Tell me about some of the people you’ve met while performing? some of the people you wish to meet during your journey?

P-Butta: I’ve met a couple names doing shows. When I was 16 me and my homey Metane opened up for Bonecrusher. That was fun. Also young dro in st. louis at club rio. This is like 10 years ago by the way. I’ve opened up for and done a song with Mickey Factz, a New York native artist. That was about 2 years ago. Other than that, I’ve met artists at the right place right time type stuff.

MP: What do you do when you aren’t  recording or rehearsing your music?

P-Butta: I usually do other things. I direct and shoot videos. Some people know that some don’t. I brainstorm my next project or what Im working on at the time to try and organize my next step. Or I tend to go other events so I can see whats out there.

MP: How do you keep coming up with dope music? Any inspirations?

P-Butta: When I get a dope idea in my head i like it to be natural or unforced. I feel thats the best way. Its more organic that way. I usually get inspired by something when I don’t know anything about . If I heard a song by a band I wouldn’t normally listen to and i like it, its going to inspire me to get some music popping.

MP: What has been the most challenging moment in your career and why?

P-Butta: The most challenging point of my career is a constant battle from sacrificing all the love for my dream to rap. Whether it be the girl of my dreams, spending more time with my family, or losing constant money I could be saving in the process. Balancing my real life from rap life is the most difficult.

MP: Do you have anyone that has influenced you in your career? Who and Why?

P-Butta: My family and friends. I have famous rappers i look up to where I am influenced by their music but I’ve never met them. To those I have met, they’ve influenced me like crazy. I got a little brother and sister who influence me because they see I am progressing and take pride in it. They tell they’re friends about me and what I’m doing. Same thing with my nieces and nephews. That drives me more than anything because they are truly who I do it for at the end of the day.

MP: Where do you see yourself in the next couple of years?

P-Butta: All I want to do is get paid for what I love to do. I love making music, performing, shooting videos, etc. If i can do that and get paid for it, Im good. Keep all the fame, hoopla and all that other bull crap. I just want money, music and my family. “All I want is money fuck the fame Im a simple man.” Shout out to 2Pac

MP: Is the anyone you would like to give a shoutout to? (more…)
