K-Naan: Dreamer

50 Cent's dissing folks again... Meh

Yay, another diss track is out, this time it's 50 Cent talking smack to Rick Ross. The question is why? It would be great if just a handful of mainstream rap artists actually focused on making a real song. A real good song. Geez. James Brown wasn't writing diss records. Hall and Oates weren't battling other musicians... Please. Grow Up. Be creative and make some real music with just an inkling of value. We know you're capable. Willing, not too sure.

Artist Of The Week - Skila

The arts of rhyming and production aren’t easy for anyone to master, but they’re nearly impossible to when you can’t hear. Skila, an artist from Queens, NY, who both rhymes and produces, had to deal with this fact three years ago when, already deaf in his right ear, he was given the diagnosis that he had Meniere's Disease in his left ear, which was causing it to slowly go deaf, as well. The man who caught the rhyme bug from hanging out with the likes of Creature, Gab Gacha, Buck Live and Jam Dot was suddenly unable to record music. Thankfully, through taking care of himself he regained some of his hearing in his left ear and immediately hit the studio. This week I sat down with Skila to discuss the resulting album, Audionarcotics, his path back to being a recording artist, and the disease that nearly robbed him of his career. Click here...

NYC & NJ converge as Top $ Raz and Kalil Kash combine sets to create a phenomenal dynamic duo on stage.

Bondfire: Mic's Open Show 10:30 - 11:30pm

Think MTV Unplugged, Def Poetry/Comedy Jam & SNL. During Bondfire: Mic's Open Show, open mic participants are guest of the host, "The Bronx Über Villain". Like medieval times where kings were entertained by the likes of jesters and musicians, performers do the same for the audience as well as , "The Bronx Über Villain". Each performance concludes with a mostly humorous comment from the host. The official show once edited for television and dvd will have a mix of the most outstanding open mic performances and out takes, live performances from the Bondfire: Concert Series, video interviews with various artists, comedy sketches and special ‘The Bronx Über Villain" commentary.

Bondfire: Concert Series 11:30pm-until
People aren't too enthused these days with live shows. They never seem to start on time. Artists either cancel or show up and aren't that impressive when they do. New York is a great city that has a reputation for being the starting point, and place of discovery of some of the greatest musicians to ever do it. Bondfire: Concert Series is about regaining the confidence of music lovers and creating lasting memories. Simply having a wonderful time. We're saying, 'No To Mediocrity!'.

Artist Of The Week - Urbalist

Growing up in the middle class suburb of Westfield, New Jersey, life was pretty normal for Urbalist. He had his own group of friends, and started rhyming in his mid-teens. In 1999 he went off to college at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI, met Moses "Moe Mentum" Hernandez, and the two formed a group. Something happened on the way to stardom, though, Urbalist received the news that he had cancer. Determined to beat it, Urbalist decided to write rhymes during the entire experience. Those rhymes turned into an album, Cancerous Flow: Lyrical Journal, that details his journey from the time he was diagnosed all the way up through his eventual victory over the disease. This week I sat down with Urbalist to find out more about the recording of the album, what it feels like for him when he listens to it now, and some of the other projects he’s working on.

Creature's In Siberia, Brrrr....

FHHN just randomly hit up Creature, somewhere in the future, (it's already tomorrow there) in Russia.

Define Creaturenomics?
Creaturenomics.... A Rebel with a cause. A Creative Free thinker. And a generally good person who wants to contribute something uplifting to the universe. Oh Yeah, and a Hustler, Artistpenuer and Showman.

What are you doing in Sibera?
I'm emceeing a club called the heart club it's actually in Khabovsk which is really close to Sibera.

Seeing as in the fact that you have special dietary needs, what's the food situation like in Russia for you?
I go to the market and stay with fresh fruit and vegetables I drink herbal tea make avocado salad with mushrooms. I make it work with the resources I have.

You're going to Shanghi for?
I'm Going to Shanghai to emcee. You see, I'm a performer in every sense of the word. These clubs need an emcee to do that for the club. So I do what I do. I rap, hype the crowd. I'm doing my Chief Rocker Busy Bee thing...

What's the word on the next album? What's different, what's the same?
I'm writing it. It's honest, edgy, different from both albums but my d.n.a. flows thru it so there is a sameness. More flows, a little more experimentation on the beats. Concentrated lyricism.

What are you currently listening to? Why?
P.J Harvey, Outkast, Eminem, house music, 2pac, old Nas, Motorhead, Nick Cave. I'm enjoying the lyricism and the moods and different emotion it displays.

Artist Of The Week - Silent Knight

Silent Knight is an artist I became aware of by virtue of being in the scene. We’d met at a few events and at the most recent one we were at he handed me a copy of his debut album, Hunger Strike. Hunger Strike, an album filled with powerful, message-based Hip-Hop, was originally released at the very end of 2006 and Silent Knight followed it up with a remix CD titled Restoration: One Step Back, Two Steps Forward. Staying busy, in 2008 he released a free album online at his website and co-founded an all-ages art and music event titled Hub City Revival. In addition to all that he’s also a finalist in Loud.com’s emcee competition, which happens to pit him against his friends Homeboy Sandman and Kaze. This week I caught up with Silent Knight to find out how he’s dealing with being in such a big competition against some of his good friends, what he hopes people get out of his music, and why he feels that despite his own style being highly message driven there’s still a time and place for a brainless rap artist or two.

Artist Of The Week - Jav aka Rapmononov

A month or so ago I was at a show with former Artist Of The Week Deep of 2 Hungry Bros and he handed me a CD by Jav aka Rapmononov, recommending I give him a listen. The album turned out to be dope, which really shouldn’t have been much of a surprise. As a member of the AOK Collective Deep works with some of the best artists around, so clearly he knows what he’s doing when it comes to assessing talent. Of course, I wasn’t going to leave things at just a listen, I had to hit up Jav aka Rapmonanov for a feature. This week I caught up with the multitalented artist to find out more about the man behind the music, including everything from his inspirations, to why he feels his work will connect with people, to how a classical musician influenced his name.

What I Do ft Abstract Artform

The second installment of the Sick Muse series brings Fallen back to his roots as a lyricist. Clearly stated throughout this record, Fallen is doing this for himself, if you happen to like it, then great. Sick Muse Vol. 2 is much more personal then it's predecessor, and seems more like an outlet of thoughts and emotion rather then a record. In any event, Fallen is very proud of his work on this one, and hopes everyone enjoy's listening as much as he enjoyed creating.
