Download: Yelawolf "Throw It Up" feat. Gangsta Boo & Eminem
I’m calling it now: This is going to be the biggest album of 2011 (and first half of 2012). Check out the joint with Yeala, Gangsta Boo & Eminem (as he goes postal on this joint). You’re welcome. Biggups to Supahot Beats on the track.
It’s been a decade since Little Brother came onto the scene and producer 9th Wonder immediately became a production star. The ability to make boom-bap production and get commercial critical acclaim was a feat that hasn’t been met since hip-hop’s glory years of people like his counterparts DJ Premier, Pete Rock and more.
Now, heading his own label Jamla records and more credentials than a little bit on his resume, 9th puts out ‘Wonder Years’, a smorgasbord of his artists, independent hip-hop elite and soul artists.
The album starts off with 9th’s autobiographical verse on “Make It Big” with fellow producer-turned-rapper for the song Khrysis. The song immediately made it clear that 9th is completely comfortable in his skin.
Some of the key records on the album include “Band Practice” with a newly squashed beef with Phonte and Median going back and fourth over one of the album’s strongest cuts.
“No Pretending” featuring Raekwon & Big Remo, “Enjoy” with Warren G., Murs and Kendrick Lamar and “Peanut Butter & Jelly” with Marsha Ambrosius are clear examples of 9th’s ability to have a variety of work. The ability to comfortably make backdrops for soul music, hip-hop and even pop records with ease, a feat rarely seen.
For 9th Wonder, the future could only be brighter. A list of accomplishments including parent, producer, professor, label exec could in the near future have one of the greats included on the list. -PJ
This is a little treat from the release of Collette’s Coco By Request Deluxe Edition coming out digitally 11.08.11. This is the Jah-Freedom (King Jah-Free Joffre) Remix and it’s quite filthymcnasty. We’re going to have it for a download for a limited time so enjoy while you can. Cheers.
I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated the mobettasoul.com site but a brutha been goin’ thru it with life and fam (and happened to get my ass in the studio a lil’ too). anyways, check out this docu about the 3/11 tragedy in japan with none other than pharrell. dope shit. entire docu in vimeo format below. enjoy.
When Little Brother came onto the scene almost ten years ago, two things were obvious: 9th Wonder had the potential to be one of the most influential producers in modern hip-hop and Phonte was an absolute star. Phonte had the uncanny ability to master the art of being a voice for the every man while being one of the cleverest wordsmiths making it seem so effortless.
Years followed and Little Brother not only disbanded but Phonte semi-retired rapping by almost exclusively singing for his outfit the Foreign Exchange. But finally after being a Grammy Nominated artist and squashing a beef with 9th, Phonte puts out Charity Starts At Home.
In short the album is damn near perfect. A excellent blend of lyricism and grown man singles that talk about real relationships and raising children. Key standout records like “Life of Kings” featuring Big K.R.I.T and Evidence and “Not Here Anymore” featuring Elzhi, does nothing but make you wonder what other classics could have been made if 9th and Phonte stopped beefing sooner.
The album not only shows Phonte in top form lyrically but also shows him as comfortable as we’ve seen him, a type of confidence being in the game over ten years can offer.
Hands down this project is probably the album of the year (I say that until I hear Yelawolf and KRIT’s major release). Regardless of its end of year placement, by it going on the Billboard 200 list in the first week with sales shows not only confidence in independent music but also faith that strong hip-hop records still have a fan base out there. -PJ
Been meaning to put this record up for a minute (my bad Will) but a brotha’s been goin’ through it. I digress. Check the audio for the latest single from the group with the greatest band title I’ve heard in a while (wish I thought of it first) the The Golden Pyramids. Peep the audio out for their first single and download it from iTUNES. Who said black rock don’t exist? Get ‘em! Enjoy.
There’s some people that can sing, and then there’s people that can saiing. Columbia/Atlanta based artist Nikkiya is of the latter group gracing vocals for artists from Yelawolf to Tech N9ne. Now, she’s ready with her solo project Speakher, a smorgasbord of her influences of soul, gospel, funk, rock and all else in between. She takes a break from her busy schedule to have a few words with MBS. Enjoy.
MBS: Tell us where ya from.
Nikkiya:I’m from Columbia, South Carolina by way of this awesome globe.
MBS: Tell us how you first got involved with music.
N: I can remember my first recording I did with my step dad when I was a little girl. It was a choir prayer worship team kind of thing. We recorded on tape. So, as I got older I knew I wanted to sing. I ended up hooking up with Will Power through a friend of mine that worked with him. I would drive by his studio in Columbia (South Carolina) to see if his car was there and once I saw it I came and sat in a session. I had some ideas and performed and it was a wrap.
MBS: Tell us about the Speakher project.
N: It’s a collection of me speaking my mind. I lived in Italy for six years, Guam etc. It has that Euro-pop, electric vibe. But I came to the Carolinas as a teenager and my dad’s side of the family is religious, so that’s all about who I am. Everything I love comes out of the speakers, so I thought it was a really dope name.
MBS: Who do you have on the album?
N: We have MC Lyte on the record Yelawolf. The Lyte record is a really old school feel and Yela blessed us with a verse. He’s always been girding, and I’ve seen it from being his friend for ten years. It’s great to see him get his.
MBS: Lastly, so many people complain about what they don’t like about the industry/music. What do you love most about they musical experience now?
N: The grind. I love the grinding and the shining. You have to learn to love people’s flaws and I roll with flaws, let ‘em work for me. This grind is beneficial and the pain is beneficial. It’s all worth it. The pain is just as important. Just like the music, writer’s block is just as important as the songs that come easily. I love it all.

T-shirts can be a canvas for your body. When they are done the right way, they can be billboards for how you feel. Someone that has mastered that art is 27-year-old entrepreneur Shari Neal of Bon Bon Vie, a t-shirt company in which Neal designs and operates the business all her lonesome (not to mention she’s helping co-produce the newest MBS podcast coming soon). Enjoy.
MBS: Tell us who you are

MBS: How did u get started with your business?
SN: For real though, I woke up one day and just decided to do it. I had been wanting to start a business for year. I had toyed with the idea of doing handbags & home furnishings and I previously did freelance design/web work. But I wanted to really to something where I had full creative control that I would also enjoy and possibly make some cash…T-shirt design was my answer. I had tee designs in my head and ideas I’d written down through the years, so I took 3 of my idea, some cash I had saved up and got them printed.
MBS: Do have plans to venture into other týpes of fashion with your clothing line?
SN: Definitely. I love fashion. I dabbled in fashion design in high school & college and would love to revisit that.
MBS: Tell me your five fave artists and how they inspire your work
SN:Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan

Mo’ Betta Soul magazine with Sounds Familiar Records teams up with the 5$ Bill to put together the MBS Tour featuring Preach Jacobs, Fayth Hope, Open Mike Night, Likquid Stylez and more (some dates some artists ain’t on all of em, but no worries. We’re all fam). Here’s some dates. More are being added.
05/29/11 BB Kings w/ Likwuid Stylez / Slick Rick (New York, NY)
06/03/11 Black Sheep w/ Preach Jacobs/ Open Mike Night / Author Penzwell (Charlotte, NC)
I’m glad that I keep good company. Collette is a gifted singer/songwriter/producer that now resides in New York but before that she roamed my city of Columbia, SC. I’m excited to hear her new project CoCo By Request and you can enjoy the “Orange Moon” cover. Erykah would be so proud. You’re welcome.
New York hip-hop music from the early to mid ’90s displayed some of the rawest music the culture has ever seen, capturing the essence of life on the Big Apple’s mean streets. During days when the dirtier the beat, the better, artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Black Moon and Gang Starr made their careers by relating to the people in the streets.
These days such street-savvy artists are few and far between; most are looking at their careers in the rear-view mirror. M.O.P didn’t get the memo. Never known for having traditional radio singles, the duo from the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn has always stood true with its high-adrenaline gun talk and high-energy tales of street life.
Arguably one of the all-time best street-rap acts, M.O.P. still dipped its toe into the mainstream; the duo inked deals with, but never released full-length records for, Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella and 50 Cent’s G-Unit labels. Despite never catching a big commercial break, the group is still going strong, and has been since its debut album, 1994’s To The Death.
Billy Danze, one half of the group (the other, Lil’ Fame), remembers how M.O.P.’s debut single, “How About Some Hardcore?”, got the attention of Gang Starr’s legendary producer DJ Premier.
“We were always fans of Gang Starr,” Danze says, “but it was totally different walking into a room and having him say that he was a fan of M.O.P. We only had one record out [the “How About Some Hardcore” 12-inch], and he saw the artwork for the 12-inch cover, which was a knife stuck in the wall. People think it was planned, but it just happened. When [Premier] saw that, he just went nuts. And we been family ever since.”
Premier is one of the group’s most frequent collaborators, beginning with 1996’s Firing Squad, and he helped shape the group’s energetic style. This past year, Gang Starr’s Guru passed away; seven years prior, he cut ties with Premier, leaving hip-hop fans confused.
“We all went through a tragedy losing Guru,” Danze says when asked about the last time he spoke with Guru. “And I know people also felt like it was a tragedy because there weren’t any Gang Starr records during that time. I just loved Guru; he was our brother. He was the first person to put us on tour and take us out of the country and always looked out. I remember last time speaking to him, we were in a studio and I bumped into him.
And he had that cool voice and said ‘What up Billy?’ and I wanted to talk to him. We went to the bathroom to talk. Not even about music but just personal stuff. I don’t remember the year, but I will say it was a long time ago.”
M.O.P is an enigma. In a genre where so many great groups have disbanded from A Tribe Called Quest to Little Brother, it’s amazing at how the group has maintained since 1992 as well as continuously putting out high caliber material.
“You can ask Lil’ Fame and he would probably say the same thing that I’m about to say, but the group has been together since ’92 but I have no idea when we met. We were together since free lunch and shit. We aren’t a group. We’re brothers. We never thought about getting together as a group, we were just brothers that ended up being nice with the music. So many groups may fall apart because that brotherhood isn’t there. They were probably put together from a label or management or something. It wasn’t like that. We’re family. I could remember coming home late at night and my mom would tell me I couldn’t sleep in my bed ‘cause Fame came over and was sleeping over. It was like that.”
That bond is apparent in the music having some of the industry’s top people salivating at a chance to work with them. Being signed to Roc-A-Fella and then finally the defunct G-Unit project proved that people are listening but wondering what is keeping them from having the commercial success fans believe they deserve. Billy Danze reflects on the G-Unit signing.
“We never came out because it was just a difference of opinions. I have to give 50 Cent credit, he’s a good dude. They had a vision that fit for 50 Cent and G-Unit and it just didn’t work with M.O.P. But they loved every record we turned over to them. It just didn’t work out. I just saw how hard it was on 50. He’s one of the biggest stars in the world and trying to be on top of eight different artists and groups on the label not to mention his own career which he was going in hard. Most artists have diffucilty running their careers and a label happily. Ain’t seen nobody yet. You could say Jay-Z but Dash did that. You can say Baby [Cash Money Millionaire Records] but he’s a face or CEO of the company. Maybe 50 thought he could do it. He also signed Mobb Deep a different act. A very street act but it wasn’t G-Unit. M.O.P wasn’t G-Unit. Hats off to them for all the success they’ve had. But we’re still here.”
Throughout the years the group has been very blessed to be able to work with some of the top producers in hip-hop history. Being one of the few artists to rock over a Premier, Pete Rock and Dilla beat, they are now trying to give back to young artists trying to get heard with their passion project WeBuildHits.com.
“On the site we have Grammy winning producers supplying tracks. We have people like 9th Wonder, Pete Rock, Easy Mo Bee, DJ Scratch and more. We build the records. So, people that contribute, they can’t do a whole song. You can submit a verse or a hook and then we will link it with someone else in maybe a Germany and a Canada and by the time it’s over you have a completed song on a producer’s beat that you may not have another opportunity to get on. We know how hard it is. I remember we needed $25k to get a beat from Pete Rock and having to chase him for it. So, this is our way of giving back giving these talented artists an opportunity. Want to know what’s next for M.O.P? We wanna save the world.” -MBS
OFWGKTA: Frank Ocean-Nostalgia, Ultra Mixtape (Download)
Love em or hate em, OFWGKTA is taking the everyone by storm. It’s great to hear the younger generation doing some new shit (I’m talking like I’m an old far and not even 30 yet, but I digress). Enjoy the new mixtape by member Frank Ocean by DOWNLOADING HERE (courtesy of Dat Piff). Peacers.
If you find someone that claims they can find ten rappers (dead or alive) doper than Pharoahe Monch, you are talking to a liar. One of the most consistent wordsmiths in the game for over 20-years (yea, that long) Monch comes out with his latest effort W.A.R. an album filled with tons of apocalyptic themes and production that sounds like an action movie filled with explosions.
The album begins with an intro by The Wire vet Idris Elba and followed by “Calculated Amalgamation” featuring hard guitar riffs and Monch sounding as focused as ever.
If his sophomore album Desire came out last week then, W.A.R. feels as if it could be the EP project. Not that that’s a bad thing (since Desire is one of my favorite albums as well).
Tracks like “Clap”, “Black Hand Side” and “Haile Salassie Karate” shows two things that Pharoahe can do well: 1) Rhyme his ass off and 2) ridiculous range.
The Jean Grae and Royce Da 5’9 assisted “Assassins” is pure lyrical brilliance. Something that this Duck Down release is filled with.
The album is nearly perfect with only the “The Grand Illusion” featuring Citizen Cope being the only slight misstep (even though I applaud the effort to do something different).
If Monch was considered one of the greatest emcees in the world prior to this release, then W.A.R is just an extended claim to that assumption. Solid album by a veteran emcee. What else do you need?
UGGGGH! not much else needs to be said. one half of the clipse is working on a new album. to hold you over is his new mixtape Fear of God. download it here. peep the track ‘touch it’ feat. kanye below. enjoy.
this is what rebellious hip-hop is supposed to be like. random. hard. not giving a good goddamn. for the record if you hear the diss line to B.o.B he gives a really dope response. peep it here. and also check out our interview we had with B.o.B a while back here.
my favorite emcee out right now. period. this dude is the future (you don’t hear random ass claims like that from me….if you know me, but dammit this mixtape makes me a believer). download the entire mixtape here.
Sup yall? There’s nothing better than having a weekend to chill out, drink some coffee and smoke some good ole cigars. Point being this is what motivated me to put this new podcast together. I know it’s been a while, but it’s here now. You’re welcome.

What can you say about Radiohead? Probably the last great band over the past twenty plus years, the British troupe are still finding new ways to be revolutionary in how they manage and go about selling their music. In a time when artists go apeshit about people stealing their music, Radiohead tells the audience to pay what they like. The generous gesture didn’t leave them without praise and acclaim (snagging a few Grammys that year) and an average consumer digital purchase of about $10 per album download.
Now, they’re back with the 8-song effort The King of Limbs. An alternative-effort where they continue to go towards the abstract and abnormal with the first song “Bloom” with Thom Yorke crooning "Open your mouth wide/ A universal sigh/ And while the ocean blooms/ It’s what keeps me alive / So why does this still hurt/ Don’t blow your mind with why."
Sonically The King of Limbs seems to be a continuum of In Rainbows rather than a new project but that comes as no complaint (especially since In Rainbows still gets constant rotation from me).
Other records like “Lotus Flow” and “Codex” are other magnificent electronic offerings to accompany the album clocking in under 38 minutes. The album is further proof that artists can be a massive sensation and still find ways to stick to their roots. We salute thee.
The Notorious BIG & Midi Marc 'Machine Gun Funk' Download

Pharoahe Monch "Black Hand Side" (feat. Styles P & Phonte) Audio
I’ve must have been hiding under a frickin’ rock to not know that Pharoahe Monch was putting out a new album. Well, I can’t complain. Check out the audio for his latest effort (biggups to the Morpheus Soul Show for hipping me to this).
In my humble opinion i believe Lupe is one of the most gifted lyricist to emerge in hip-hop in the past decade or so. His debut Food & Liquor and the extremely solid follow-up The Cool, it was only a matter of time before he was going to be considered one of the most consistent emcees in recent years. But label issues ensue and the ‘Lasers’ project seemed to get the ‘Detox’ treatment. But instead it being like a Dre type situation filled with indecisiveness, Lupe was going through label woes and even campaigning for fans to sign online petitions to get the album out to the people.
As far as the content that was coming out (that we assumed was going to be on the album), songs like “I’m Beamin” was an amazing record produced by Neptunes. Followed by a few other tracks like the Jimi Hendrix sampled “Fire” and “She Wants” all had promise all over them. Unfortunately when the album came out none of these songs were on there.
What was on there instead were songs that really sound like a pop-rap record and having the suspicion that a major label was forcing an artists’ hand. After reading an interview with Lupe saying he ‘hates’ his album (check it here) I don’t feel as bad about my response to the album.
There’s moments of classic Lupe with politically charge lyrics on songs like “Words I Never Said” with lines like “Obama didn’t say shit/That’s why i didn’t vote for him/Not next one either…” (which is taboo for a rap artist to go against the grain on this topic). But I admire his openness.
Other records like “All Black Everything” also possess the words to describe the pulse of the young people of struggle. With that said other songs on the album (or the majority) leave much to be desired.
The single “The Show Goes On” sounds like a blatant attempt to make a pop record. Inspirational though the words maybe, the record isn’t doing it for me (and he even admits that the song was a label suggestion to ensure the album comes out).
Records like “I Don’t Wanna Care Right Now” and “Out Of My Head” sounds like Lupe is uncomfortable as hell which really makes me opt for the mixtapes prior to this album release than the official record.
After this album Lupe’s intension is to leave Atlantic in order to have his control with what he’s doing. Even though this album is disappointing, it’s not a hanging offense. I still know what he’s capable of and look forward to what he’s going to do next. Two great albums out of three is still a great track record thus far.
Too bad this song wasn’t on the album. For the people that haven’t heard it here’s the video for “I’m Beamin” (I hear it’s a bonus but dunno yet). Enjoy.
Mo’ Betta Soul returns to Asheville, NC on March 25th at Firestorm Cafe. It’ll feature Lyric Jones, The Golden Pyramids, Sounds Familiar artist DayClean and Preach Jacobs and visual artist Joshua Spiceland. Peep the flier and enjoy.
