Being a fan of Freddie Gibbs, during our last review it was mentioned that he needed some serious production help as well as a few features. In jumps super producer Madlib. Following a lot of his instrumental albums I have been a fan for a while but lately he has been producing a lot of others. With this combination we looked forward to hearing this release
We jump into the 3rd installment of the Kanye production month with the release of "Kids see Ghost". The collaboration with Kanye and Kid Cudi on their 7 track release. Fans of Kid Cudi we absolutely have our opinion of what we think of the overall production.
As this is Kanye's month (June). We start with his solo release Ye! Even tho the album covers says,"I hate being bi-polar - its awesome". Somebody is still a fan and somebody is done with his sh*t!! But we both know that he is still one of the best producers out now. we break it down!!
We end our interview with Tremel Copeland with reminiscing of older equipment and a few techniques of recording and producing. A great conversation of old perspective and new with a common love of creating.
SoundCloud: Zuri production
For my special production/DJ series. I sit down with the young Producer Tremel Copeland AKA Zuri of Zuri production. I had to have a sit down with Tremel because of the many beats and production interludes we play during a lot of our podcast. And I wanted to pick his brain and show recognition and gratitude for his talent This is Part I
Sean and I sit down and review the legendary DJ premier and Royce da 5'9" with their 2nd release from their collaboration PRhyme. To me its about the production and giving props to Royce da 5'9" for putting out a stable release.
PRhyme is an American hip hop duo composed of Detroit-based rapper Royce da 5'9" and New York-based record producer DJ Premier. They created their own record label PRhyme Records and released their first album, PRhyme, on December 9, 2014, and its follow-up, PRhyme 2, on March 16, 2018 The production of each album is based on sampling a single artist's compositions: Adrian Younge for PRhyme and AntMan Wonder for PRhyme 2
We stay on the West Coast and grab hold of two new releases. Both from L.A the area with styles that may seem similar but unique in a way to see how quality trumps style. Cozz being a Dreamville alum and Nipsey with Atlantic records. Pretty interesting when you hear the features and production quality.
On this episode, Sean and I go left field on these artist. One new to the Hip hop genre the other a prolific producer with production and hip hop albums underneath him. Really different perspective for both but we do our best to tackle the uniqueness of both of them.
