I got Hip Hop Legend Vin Rock of Naughty By Nature to take a spin on the BERG X-Plore pedal cart during Toy Fair NY at Jacob Javits Center. He was diggin the way how it rode. I tried to get him to spit some bars while he was in the pedal cart for Spittin In Da Wip action lol. That actually would be pretty dope to shoot some Spittin In Da Wip episodes on the Berg pedal carts though, I need to work on that.
Vin was at Toy Fair with one of his business partners who’s in the Toy Industry and he told me a little about his Ill Town Sluggers project that he’s working on. Vin also gave a quick update on his TRPL sneaker brand.
I have a new BERG USA interview with Iyana Campbell coming soon where she tells about the 2018 line of pedal carts coming out. Stay tuned for that!
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
