This past Saturday was the screening of the DJ-Con Mount Vernon Remix documentary! The event was held at the Mount Vernon Public Library which is actually around the block from where the Remix event happened. DJ-Con creator Curtis Sherrod along with Councilman Andre Wallace and Say Yas productions put together a great event with a red carpet and interview area with posters of some of HipHop Pioneers. We attended the first screening where Hip Hop Legends like Grand Wizard Theodore, The Collins Brothers, Dr Dre(Ed Lover & Dr Dre), Scratchmaster Jazzy G and more were in the building for the event.
After the screening Curtis blessed us with some real HipHop treats! First he had the legendary Dj Supreme give us a taste of his superior Dj skillz. Then Curtis got freestyle Jedi and Spittin In Da Wip alumni D-Nasty to spit an epic freestyle off the top. It was a great day of real HipHop culture and a great way to set off Black History Month.

Kooley High IS Back With New Visuals “Ceiling”
We’re hyped to see North Carolina Hip-Hop crew Kooley High back at with new treats! Their latest single “Ceiling” features a piano driven sample, a light boom bap beat pattern, a dope bassline and a Outkast “Aliens” sample in the hook. Tab-One and Charlie smarts spit some tight bars about elevating to higher heights, hence the name Ceiling ;).
“Ceiling” will be featured on Kooley High‘s upcoming album “Never Come Down” which will be executive produced by 9th Wonder. As you may or may not know 9th Wonder scooped up Rapsody while she a part of Kooley High back in the day so it’s pretty dope that he’s now executive producing their new album. Will we see a Rapsody cameo on the new album??? We hope so, that would be epic!!
In case ya’ll forgot (“Kooley Is High” 2009)
“Flip It” by 1905 #HipHop Instrumental
We’re diggin the chillhop vibes of “Flip It”, crafted by 1905. The jazzy piano sample, boom bap drum pattern and thick bass make this a nice treat for the ears. Flip it is featured on the HipHop instrumental album “2 Days” by 1905. The album is full of sample driven, chill, jazzy boom bap beats.
Heavily influenced by graffiti and hash oil, 1 9 0 5 pushes beats through a sampler, the same one he has previously digged with the pope. On day 1 he created a joint and it became light. On day 2 he did this f*****’ tape. The rest of the week he just chilled. ~ XQRSNS Records
