DJ Heat Remembers When..

Call me nerdy, geeky, weird or whatever but as a fan of hip hop, I love when artist, djs, or even producers get in their zone on twitter and flashback and tell their story. Maybe I'm the only one who likes reading where others have come from. If so, well let me be. Its just shows how far someone has come and I think that's a great thing that you get to see now that Twitter is here.

A few days ago, one of my favorite DJs from the DMV area sent a few messages about things she remembered as she started DJing, and also a few tidbits about others who she has noticed along the way.

Being that I'm from Mississippi, there's a whoooole lot I'm not familiar with about DC music altogether. So this was something I was very interested in reading. I told her she needs to do more and she said "Maybe" so we'll see. Haha

Here are some tweets from April 22, 1010 that I like to call
"Dj Heat Remembers"

B.O.B. presents
The Adventures of Bobby Ray

B.O.B. dropped his debut album this past Tuesday, May 27th. This was one album I was looking forward to, mostly because Bobby reminds me of Andre 3K (which is one of my top five rappers) and since he has been away for a minute, Bee Ray fills this void. The album starts off dope as you would expect and gets better the more I listened to it.

There were even a few songs that I quickly went back and listened to before I even finished the whole project. There are a few features as well. "Past My Shades" ft. Lupe Fiasco is an instant classic. The KING also steps in on a couple tracks and holds his own.

Surprisingly my favorite tracks are those which B.O.B. handles himself. The ones where he's singing and just going into his own world of some sort.

Dont Let Me Fall, which is below is probably my favorite track on the cd.

This cd is most definitely worth the price of purchase. I havent purchased a lot of cds but this is one I'm glad I spent a few bucks on. He deserves it.
You can cop this album from iTunes.

Freddie Mac ft. Mike Epps - Lolly Gaggin

You knew it was only a matter of time right? Once again yours truly does what he does on this Big Sean - Bullshittin instrumental. Why not? With the help of Mike Epps stand up, I show you all what the fcuk I'M DOING and what most are doing as well.

This song is off the upcoming project entitled "Freddie Mac presents Thank You" due out May 25th. More info will be given shortly. Enjoy this track for now, I'm sure more will leak a later in the week.

Freddie Mac - Lolly Gaggin

Download this song here.

the GAME
400 BARS

Now I must say I went into listen to this track with the LOWEST EXPECTATIONS. I'm just keeping it real. Why? Because Game has been letting me down lately with this half ass songs he's been putting out. I must say though, this is the Game I loved, the one who killed everything he killed when he first came out. Even though its 20 minutes long, its worth it. This is what I needed to get ready for The Red Room. I woulda have provided you all with the music player like i usually do but 20 minutes is a li too long PLUS with the link I provide, you can listen to the track while it's download. Please do.

Download 400 Bars here.

PAR-CITY presents
Held Up: The Hold Up Pt 2

Yes, today is THE DAY for Hip Hop and you know who always hold you down for Music Monday. I told you a few days ago that the Bronx most talented rap group, Par-City, was releasing their new mixtape today, on 4/26. The wait is over. This is by far the best product out at the moment, with my Chilled Milk of Choice coming in a close second OF COURSE.

Hosted by Shade 45's Mz Stylez, these guys go in from the first track to the last track. Download this mixtape and if it's not worth it please let me know although I find that highly impossible.

They shoulda never gave you ninjas

So last night, as I doing what I usually do on Saturday nights which is reading the Bible (#ShoutouttotheLord), I checked in with the twitter fam to see how things were going. To my surprise, it was a little too much going on at the moment and thanks to tweetphoto, I felt like I was there.

Let me try to explain. This is the message i saw:

I mean, c'mon. I had to click it, wouldnt you? So then my trusty BlackBerry uploaded this image:

I really dont know if Im more upset that shorty has on white panty draws or the fact that I think I spot khakis, reebok classics, and a pair of polo slip-ons in this same pic.
Either way it was most definitely not a good look.

Follow KiaDeLis for more entertainment.
And oh yeah, blame Kujho and Rob Hollywood for this fuckery. Im sure they had something to do with it!
Ha! Shout out

Trending Topic of The Week

Earlier this week the Hip Hop world were saddened with the passing of Guru who lost his long term fight with cancer on April 19, 2010. After this news broke, a letter surfaced as well, supposedly wrote by Guru on his death bed. This letter was made available to the public by Guru's long-time friend Solar.

Many are questioning if this letter is authentic and if it in fact was wrote by Guru himself. Guess we will never know, but later that evening a trending topic appeared on Twitter that will never be forgotten, #SolarWrote. Seems as if many people don't only believe Solar wrote the letter BUT has written other great things over history as well.

Have a look see:

SMH @ this guy's life (Solar) never being the same again.

Envy Joy - Heart

The great thing about Twitter which I've mentioned a few times before on this site, is that you have a chance to connect with the most talented people all across the world. It is even better when you run across someone who is located in your same area and is so passionate about MUSIC. This is the case with Envy Joy.

A few days ago, what started out as a simple @reply on twitter, ended with the forming of possibly a great networking possibility and friendship. After a few back and forth tweets and WAY to many compliments from me, I found out that she was a very talented artist right here in the DMV area.

After begging her to send me a few songs, she did. I must say, each song sounded better and better, which now has me waiting on a whole project. Her style, to me, reminds me a little of Lauryn Hill, and that is a very good look.

Below is one of my favorite tracks entitled Heart:

Drake - Miss Me

Over the weekend this new Drizzy leaked. From what I'm seeing it's suppose to be off Thank Me Later and features Lil Wayne (who is not included on this snippet)

Drake: Miss Me

I just want to say it sounds pretty good to me but I've been seeing alot of comments from others who's saying it should have less this and more that and everything else. It's just crazy how everyone is a music composer now. GTFOH! These expectations of this guy are waaaaay to high, the song is nice and if every song on his album sounded like this, it would be an pretty good album to me. That's just my opinion. That's all. As you were.

Lyriciss x Brokn.English x Emperess
2 Dope Radio Cypher

Ahite, fresh off my vacay I come back to find NEW music has hit the innanets. You and I both know it's nothing like a cypher. Nothing like the raw form of hip hop, this is where talent is exposed and you see the artist for who he or she really is.

2DopeBoyz has started a special segment called 2Dope Radio, which broadcasts every Saturday. You should check it out.

This past weekend Lyriciss stepped up to the cypher along with Emperess (another DMV artist), and the Jersey based group Brokn.English.

Check them out on the link below:

Let's Talk About Sex
....or the lack of

A few days ago we started #FridayNightConvos which will happened every Friday night from here on out, unless I run out of crap meaningful things to talk about.

Here is the first installment, let me know what you think.

The other day a female friend came out of NOWHERE and asked me, "Would you stay with a girl if she told you that she was celibate?"
Before I could even think about the question, not wanting to sound like an ass, I immediately said, "Oh yeah, of course. Sex is not a big deal to me."
She then said, "Wow, that's great that you think that way!"
We then got went into comparing what would happen if the circumstances were different.
I asked, "Would you stay with a guy if he claimed to be celibate?"
She answered, "No, I would think he was gay. Mostly because ALL GUY I KNOW want to FCUK!!" I somewhat agreed, not on the gay accusation (Not that there's anything wrong with that) but on the thought that 99% of the guys I know usually do wanna smash something. I also know a high percentage of women who need their fix as well. I started thinking could I really wait for a chick? ONLY if she was worth waiting for, but how long would that last. Honestly speaking, for me...Two months. Is that wrong? I mean two months should let her know that I was "semi-serious" right? "Am I MAAAAAAAN, Aint I?"

A couple of my friends from twitter weighed in, let me know what you think:

C'mere Lemme Coach You..


Need I say more? Ask anyone down south who frequently visits the club scene and they will tell you once a NOLA MIX comes on, it GOES DOWN. Weaves usually get sweated out, ass is thrown, and those guys who can not keep up usually gets embarrassed!

My guy Kujho has been grinding hard as ever. Even when I went to school with him at the University of Southern Miss back in 2004. It's really good to see the progress and determination that he has shown.

A few weeks ago he released two NOLA MIXES after popular demand and YES, I was all on them. Being up top, you rarely ever get to hear music like this so it was just what I needed.

Check out the first:

Download this mix here.

Exactly. You're welcome.

You can also listen and download the second mix here.

Follow Kujho on Twitter. Tell him I sent you.

What the people are saying...

A few weeks has passed since I released Chilled Milk of Choice and the feedback has been incredible. Last time I checked it was over 200 plus downloads and to me, that's major!

Once again, thanks for the support and please spread the word to anyone who hasn't had a chance to download it yet.

You can listen and download the mixtape RIGHT HERE.

Mixtape Thursday..
presented by DJ LASER

Just like everyone else I've ran into over the last few years, Dj LASER and I met through twitter. After seeing his name on my timeline a few times, I had to get to know this guy and what exactly had everyone talking about #MixtapeThursday. After visiting his site I realized what all the talk was about.

Laser is a VET in the game with a mixtape catalog like no other. While a lot of people had went away from mixtapes, he is one who has embraced the hip hop culture by steady providing some of the hottest mixtapes after mixtape year in and year out.

Mixtape Thursday is his way of showing the world whats hot, what the people want, and who are doing what. Another thing I like about his segments is that he doesn't play favors. If its hot, he adds it to the mix.

Check out DJ LASERS latest Mixtape Thursday Mix HERE.

BET picks up THE GAME

So as I was scrolling Trending Topics on Twitter today, I came across #TheGameonBET. Knowing that the rapper, The Game, has been having a hard time getting fresh music out, I was thinking the worse. Like maybe he had taken some BET execs hostage until they played some of his latest music, but that was not the case.

Seems that BET has picked up The Game (tv show) for a couple new episodes. Im sure this means ALOT to a few. Me? I've never watched 2 full episodes, but hey..

Here's the press release:

So, there you have it.

Yes, the one who describes him self as the 'Sadity Hillbilly' has been making his mark in hip hop for a good minute. I was glad when I reached out to him about the mixtape, he came through with no problem.

Who holds down #MusicMonday like I do? I'll wait...

New music from NICE people and when I say nice I'm not talking about "let-you-borrow-some-sugar-from-ya-next-door-neighbor nice" but really NICE with the pen and pad.

Check out this joint from DOE x Trav Dave x Young Wise.

Drizzy on the hook. He made it a hot line, they made it a hot song. Yea, you knew that was coming.


For those of you who have not downloaded the mixtape or have been having problems trying to download it, you can now cop it from DatPiff Mixtapes.

You can also listen to the mixtape track by track as well.

Thank you all once again for the support. More things coming soon.



Once again, NEW MUSIC from yours truly. This Alicia Keys song seems to be everyone's fave, including myself. So it was only right that I gave you all my rendition of the song. Truthfully speaking, I loved the way it came out.

Take a listen and tell me what you think.
