Based on the 2 or 3 tracks i’ve heard from this cat…he’s my new favorite (coming up) rapper…
Here’s a video from the interview with Angela Yee where he spits to “On Top Of The World”, which is the song he tried to get to Jay-Z for American Gangster. It’s worth a watch! Because too many people deny music based on the fact that most of it is terrible…this is bananas!!!!!
Here’s the vid from the same interview where he is denied by Jay and his entourage. Pretty inspiring actually imo.
if you haven’t heard any of his music…here’s the song “Lights Please” which I think is what eventually got him on with Jay-Z.
yea, i’ve got my eye on him…
Peace, and on top of the world love!
Mr Hudson is having a remix contest for his next single Anyone But Him. The song is from his debut solo album Straight No Chaser on Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music imprint. It’s an incredible album but is only (legally) available in the homeland (read UK) currently. It gets released here tomorrow according to wikipedia though I can’t find really any other information on it. Please find a way to get it and immerse yourself in heartache.
If you’ve got what it takes you could feature on Mr Hudson’s next single ‘Anyway But Him’, which is set to be released in the new year – Kanye West features on the album version but it could be YOU on the digital release.
Mr Hudson is looking for fresh UK MCs to record their original verses onto an instrumental of the track. Whoever lays down the sickest 16 bars will get the chance to hit the studio with Mr Hudson and will feature on the song which will be digitally released on March 15th.
1. Download the ‘Anyone But Him’ MP3 Instrumental for free by registering your email address in the box below.
2. Write & Record your original rap over the Instrumental.
3. Submit your finished track to Mr Hudson’s Dropbox (see Right)
The entries will be judged by Mr Hudson & the best verses will be posted on Mr Hudson’s website & online profiles. The winner will get to record the final track in a professional studio with Mr Hudson.
You can enter as many times as you like.
Anyway, the remix contest says it is for UK emcees, but I feel like if a rapper from elsewhere in the world submits something and it’s super ill…why would they deny it?? The original track features a Kanye West verse (which is dope in its own right and I don’t understand why they’d change it?..but)
So in the light of hope for the extension of personal expression…find the instrumental here and record your best translation of self absorbed jealousy in 16 bars.
Peace and al green love…because.
Wale talks about 4 (potential bp3) tracks Kanye flew in to play for Jay-Z before a show. he wanted a couple of them, specifically “A Star Is Born” for the intro to Attention Defecit (in stores now!! it’s pretty ill!!!)…i would have liked it better with Wale, don’t really like the Jay version HONESTLY.
Kanye producing “Let The Money Fall” for Wale, KiD CuDi, Drake…dope. could still come into fruition??
peace, and remember to smile, love.
peace and flashing lights love.
Its that time again… Music Making Time (MMT) Im excited, a lot music in the works, its kinda scary… The Martians are working new material for “Nice & Clutch”… so fresh so clean lol, nah, but its some of that new new ish, smell me? The Studio is easily becoming one of my favorite places to be.. I honestly have a lot fun there, like a kid… Me, Max, E-Con & Wsquared had a magical studio session on the 4th of July Weekend down in B-Town… whipped up a lil crack for all them posers… two joints “Drumz” & “Instruments of Choice” But one of the most important things when it comes t making records is the vibes in the studio, you know… that connection between creative minds, also kn own as “synergy” is what molds everything together…Well, with that being said, here’s a few videos from the Big Homie Jay-Z who is also all about that “synergy.” Peace… Marz
Aiyo aiyo aiyo yo you!
I just got FL Studio back (after my approximately 8 month hiatus). I’ve been super inspired and made a bunch of music in the past few weeks. Here’s a beat tape of a selected 14 tracks for ya’lls.
Beat Tape July/August 2009
Features my segue into techno/dance music and my second edition of a remix of Jackz’ “Iller”. Pretty much all these are rough and only 16-24 bars at most but can dEfINITELY be expanded on.
Also…I went to Lollapalooza in Chi city this past Friday and will be posting a review-ish recap with some pictures soon.
Peace, and music love!
Hello world. My name is Infewill.
so i’ve an update for The Higher music video. I know i know, i was talking big like, “oh we’ll have it this week, nbd, be here soon.” weelll….we did finish it. but i was not happy with it. so we are starting over. well, from square 2 or 3. we’re keeping the performance footage, but adding more B-Roll and also in HD now. we’re just adding to it and editing in a different direction. but trust in grob!, it will be here soooon. but i AM a perfectionist and i won’t release shit until it is perfect (as my greatness will allow).
in additional related news…i’m cookin’ up a little something for the actual music side of The Higher. more on that later.

Currently listening to: Joe Budden – Classic (Kickdrums remix)
(the Kickdrums are NUTS…if you don’t have their new LP definitely pick it up for good production. it’s a stray away from hip hop in that it doesn’t feature rapping…but it’s dope production)
also, i’m gonna post some new music i’ve been working on soon because…i want to…and…you guys are slacking, so…i’ll pick up the pace.
peace, and higher love!
peace…few people have been asking me what music i’m working on. here’s the kind of direction i’ve been going in recently. i spent a few hours between classes in the music library today and put this together.
wsquar3d – Ruck Us instrumental
let me know what you think?
peace, instrumental love.
yooo! this thing is my new 2nd or 3rd best friend. it’s an online electric audio production interface. it has a couple of drum machines (tr-808 (yes, like that of 808s and Heartbreak) and tb-303) plus a shit-load-a effects pedals, and a couple other doogie howsers.
Go to the shit…have fun..play!
Peace, and electronic-online-kickass-production-music love.
Here we go…another “A MILLI A MILLI A MILLI” remix-fest. What do you say Red?? Keitho?? Let’s get some remixes on here!!
Cookin’ Soul – Dopeman instrumental
Peace, and remix love.
novel (producer, singer, etc.) gives the best song in the past year (imo), cudi’s “The Sky Might Fall” a soul make over. i don’t think he quite captured the dark expansion of it. but it’s a cool vid. what do you think?> peacers.
Novel-SKy Might Fall (Soul-mix)
every vid i see of 9th in the studio he is always knockin his head, on his feet, throwing his arms. i love that.
