DJ Premier – Bars In The Booth w/ Dres of Black Sheep (Session 2) (Video)


Dres did his thing. Check it out.

Simply, “Bars in the Booth” isn’t about age, popularity, or how many Twitter followers you have; its about an Emcee and a DJ moving the crowd—and that is the definition of Hip-Hop.

For Session 2, Premier linked up with up with Dres (of Black Sheep & Native Tongue fame):

“Thanks to Dres from Black Sheep for being the next up on “Bars in the Booth.” He killed it. We got more “Bars in the Booth” coming soon, so subscribe to the channel so you do not miss a thing. Press Play!!” – DJ Premier

Kap Kallous ft Caskey – I Don’t Mind (Video)


New visuals from the homie Kap Kallous. Check it out.

There’s nothing easy about the hip-hop hustle. As a matter of fact, the grind’s had Kap Kallous “feelin’ twice [his] age” lately. Which isn’t to say he’s sweating it; on new single I Don’t Mind, premiering in the Booth along with X:144‘s official visuals, the Panhandle State representative assures fans that he’s willing to endure all the stress and strain the game can throw at him, if it means getting his paper up and making his moms proud. Assisting on the guest tip, YMCMB signee Caskey jumps on David Grants‘s brass/guitar boardwork to vent about the unrealistic expectations being placed on his shoulders: “You ask me sh*t like, ‘When is your song gonna drop with Lil Wayne?’ / Like he ain’t on tour, workin’.” Goldie and Jade Lawhon provide some tuneful hook vocals to round out the record. Grandeur is slated to drop independently on Tuesday, June 10. In the meantime, of course, y’all can watch the Booth for the latest singles. – DJBooth.Net

Sunday Classic w/ Danielle Miller: The Lady of Rage – Afro Puffs (1994)


Ahhhh yeah… a badass track by a badass chick. Death Row’s The Lady of Rage dropped her single ‘Afro Puffs’ in ’94 on the soundtrack to the movie, ‘Above the Rim’. Although she collabed with many other Death Row artists as a feature she didn’t actually drop an album until 1997. I thought of this the other day when I saw that she just did a track with DJ Premier, she’s bringing it back! (although that beat sounds nothing like a Premo beat)… I’ll link you to it even though it’s not a classic cuz I’m looking for thoughts. Check the classic, check the new link. Gimme some feedback hip-hoppers! Peace
