Lancecape has taken it back to the classic samples used in a lot of his favorite Hip Hop songs. Instead of taking the straight loop, Lancecape found pride in chopping up the samples to give it more of a new school feel. It is a dirty, dusty Hip Hop project from front to back. Heavy drums, accompanied by precise sample chops makes this project very innovative and original. Any true Hip Hop fan will gravitate to these instrumentals. Lancecape is also trying to educate the younger generation, that may not know about the classic groups from the mid-nineties that helped mold this genre of music into what it is known as today… HIP HOP!

Today DJBooth premieres the new single “1954″ from Chicago-bred rapper F.Stokes, and like many of the tracks from his upcoming album Fearless Beauty, to be released June 17th, the song is both a personal reflection on his family’s history and a wider political commentary on the collective experience of his community. “I wanted to capture the spirit of the Negro Migration between 1940 and 1970,” F.Stokes begins, speaking on his main inspirations for the track. “My Godfather and my family history was my inspiration. My family like many many Negro families in Northern cities often struggle with identifying with our culture beyond the move…values and traditions were lost in the process of trying to make a decent living.
It’s been a minute since I do a podcast and I decided I wanted to talk a little more instead of just playing 2 hours worth of music. I wanted to touch on some things that happened to me, like getting my first official hater. Hi Tamara. It’s a work in progress, but I hope to make the podcast a better experience, and help promote dope hip hop from indie artists. Shoot me some feedback if you give the Podcast a listen. You can check out all the previous episodes at Mixcloud dot Com. Check it out.
