Charlie Slum - F*ck Stacey Dash (New Project)

What's good Hip-Hop heads! I've been following what Charlie Slum has been up to since we did a dope interview with him that you can read, if you haven't already, by clicking here.

I've been following his music and I like the sound of it, it reminds me of Souls of Mischief/The Pharcyde and the flow just seems effortless.

Check the new project called Fuck Stacey Dash can be listened to here:

Sunday Hip-Hop!


What's good Hip-Hop heads? Been a good weekend, sad to see some people moving away but, that just means I get to travel to new places to go visit them!

Thought I'd serve you with some Hip-Hop tracks for your Sunday evening - Enjoy!

Elzhi - It Ain't Hard To Tell 

Seriously Underrated in Hip-Hop, his delivery is just awe-inspiring - check some of his albums "The Breakfast Club" and "Elmatic" Mixtape are some real classics.

Classified - Anybody Listening

Canadian artist whose lyricism just flows effortlessly and I like the take on a Genesis classic.

Akrobatik - Built to Last

Been a fan for a long time. Versatility at its best.

Greenhouse Hooligans - Days Exclusive Video!


What's good Hip-Hop heads! Been checking out these guy's music, It's different and brings back a style that Hip-Hop has forgotton.

 Compelling and interesting lyrics laid on top of a chilled, almost jazz-sounding track, with slight hints to the late J.Dilla's sounds.
So check this track by the Greenhouse Hooligans and check my Interview with one member of the collective - Charlie Slum.

Talking Hip-Hop, Pittsburgh & Ferguson with Charlie Slum!

HipHopInformant: How long have you been involved with Hip-Hop & how did you get started?

Charlie Slum: I’ve been rapping since the age of about 7 years old. Little bullshit here & there. Then around 14-16 I started recording, doing shows etc. We (Greenhouse Hooligans) got serious as a collective though I’d say, in the past 4 years with varying degrees and patterns of seriousness and success. I’ve been doing music with Vaguz Nerve since we were like 12/13 and B1S since I was 17. 

HipHopInformant: I notice you have influences from Tupac to John Coltrane. Can you give me your top 5 Hip-Hop artists and why? 

Charlie Slum: I just love any music my ears perceive to be good. As far as a list, I mean this will be strictly in terms of personal favourites and not really in order of best to worst but.. Nas - To me, Nas is the textbook definition of the perfect rapper and when I was just learning, honing my skills, and finding my sound it seems like he was breaking down how to rap in the process of rhyming..the phrasing is always superb, stories so vivid and intricate. He’s Scorsese.

Donny Goines, veteran NY artist, visionary and all around nice guy what the very first person I did an Interview with, you can check that out by clicking here. [Forgive the formatting errors, working on fixing them]
