Judah Gives you....... @LAMBOANLO - ON MY WAY - OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO



With all eyes on the Washington D.C. metro area’s budding music scene, rising artist Lambo sees his big break just over the horizon. So of the city’s soil that his birth certificate reads District of Columbia General Hospital, the 24-year-old wordsmith was born in 1992, the second youngest of six children, and raised in neighboring Capitol Heights, Maryland, on the D.C. borderline. It was there that his mother and father, along with his older siblings, exposed him to a myriad of musical genres and sounds from numerous eras.
From his older brothers’ love for Tupac, Scarface, and The Notorious B.I.G. to his parents emphatically playing early Motown acts like The Jackson 5 and Marvin Gaye, along with D.C.’s homegrown genre Go-Go, throughout the house, Lambo pulls from an extensive frame of reference when creating his music. For many, the challenge would be embodying these influences and the DMV’s soul without sounding dated or like a caricature of artists from previous eras. Not an easy feat. And yet Lambo manages to do so seamlessly due to his natural penchant for lyricism and melody displayed on songs like “Amen.”
Lambo writes lyrics with a perspective much wiser than his years – a testament to his tribulations and blessings. When mentioning the former, no single event has affected his life like the untimely death of his older brother, which left him shell-shocked at the tender age of seven-years-old.
Losing someone so close lit a fire in Lambo, ultimately causing him to approach each day with a higher level of urgency, considering that any day can be your last.
In come the blessings. The timeliest being Lambo’s greatest gift: his daughter. Born in 2016, just as his career began to ascend, she’s given him laser-focus – a reason to stay grounded through the madness that comes with fame and stardom. Like life, music is about balance. With the omnipresence of the Internet, quick, microwaveable product has supplanted for songs of substance. Fortunately, the proverbial cream always rises to the top, making the game look rather appetizing for Lambo.

Judah Gives you................. Jay Millz on the Cover of Working Mother Magazine & Featured Article

"DC community program owner Jay Mills has a different anxiety: managing her time. She runs the Green Life, where moms line up to take courses like Cooking with Cannabis 101, Pot & Policy: Know Your Rights and Marketing Your Cannabis Business—she’s not selling edibles, so her legal risk is lower. While the mother of a 4-year- old son says running her own company allows her the flexibility to create her own schedule (dream!), she points out that “when you’re the boss, you don’t call in, you call off.”

Judah Gives you....... @ullnevanohiphop, @napalmdef "86 Draft"



This track is an homage to the legendary Bias, who died before he could share his talents in the NBAUllNevaNo writes most of his raps at his night job, while Jumbled gets up early in the morning to make beats. This duo came together due to their mutual love of raw raps and Boom-Bap beats; tired of releasing random singles, they teamed up for a 7-song EP (due out early September 2017.) They first worked together on a track on Jumbled's solo album [I wish it was longer], which came out last year."

Judah Gives you....... @Mannywellz - "WATERMELON"



With 19 dates left to go in support of Jidenna's 'Long Live The Chef Tour,' Maryland mainstay Mannywellz playfully addresses stereotypes on “Watermelon,” the follow-up to his well-received single “Wrong Place.” Last heard assisting BK mainstay Stro on “Holy Vibe,” the song is a change of pace for the DMV native and will live on his forthcoming SoulFro project.

Judah Gives you...... @Parkway703 @ashyprophet - "LIE FOR"






After deciding to "Hold Up" on releasing music, resulting in a 7-month hiatus, Parkway returns with the follow up to "Selfish."Produced by Ashy Prophet, "Lie For" picks up where the DMV rap authority last left off; detailing his personal and musical growth.

And yet, Lambo manages to do so seamlessly due to his natural penchant for lyricism and melody; which is exemplified by his new single “On May Way.”
 
Rostrum Records has an undeniable ear for talent.  After all, they introduced us to Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller (among others) and now they are back with an artist that is poised for similar success.

There are some songs that are just so catchy that you can’t fight them.  They manage to make everyone’s head nod.  The best of them have you singling along before you stop listening.  Premiered today by Mass Appeal, Lambo’s “On My Way” is that type of tune.
 
Like life, music is about balance. With the omnipresence of the internet, quick, microwaveable product has supplanted songs of substance. Fortunately, the proverbial cream always rises to the top, making the game look rather appetizing for Lambo; no question this rising star is on his way!

Judah Gives you....The Return of DCMumboSauce.com @DjheatDC



Back in 2007 I started a blog dedicated to showcasing upcoming music talent in the DMV. I named it DCMumboSauce.com, in honor of the area's distinct flavor and thus me highlighting our musical flavor. The site gained a wonderful following, and major publications like Complex and The Washington Post even linked back to it when doing stories on DMV music. We were one of the first sites to post music from a then unknown GoldLink, and did early interviews with Fat Trel, Shy Glizzy and more. In 2014 I stepped away from running the site because my heart simply wasn't in it, and I was also going through a turning point in my life. Fast forward to 2017, and I've had a change of heart like The Game! I am pleased to announced the all new DCMumboSauce.com !! 


Helping to kick off the website are two exclusive interviews! One is with Dew Baby, who many of you may have heard alongside Fat Trel and Wale on the song "Loyalty" from Wale's Festivus mixtape. But did you know that the song was not Wale's? Dew Baby gets very real when talking about that situation. It's rare for Dew Baby to do interviews, so I am glad he took the time out to talk to me: http://dcmumbosauce.com/dew-baby-gets-candid-dj-heat-music-ebm-situation-slutty-boyz/

The other interview is with DJ Anonymous, who is building a brand in the area that I would like to say is the DMV version of Roc Nation. Don't believe me? Check it for yourself: http://dcmumbosauce.com/dctop20/

One of my main reasons for bringing the site back is that I noticed a lack of coverage, and also a gap in coverage when it comes to all aspects of the DMV music scene. There are more than just trap rappers in this area, but they seem to get the most coverage by the local music "media" (yes, I use that term loosely lol. To my REAL journalist friends, this does not include you lol). Also, the ugly practice of local artists paying for interviews and website posts is still going strong here. And there are also a lot of people that have stories that need to be heard (the next interview I am unveiling this week will definitely tug at your heart strings). I plan on giving my area the proper shine that it deserves. No politics. No payola. Strictly DMV music culture.

I hope that you check out the site! Be sure to follow DCMumboSauce on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram as well. We have a tweet from today that is going viral. :) If you or any DMV based artists that you know would like to submit music, hit up dcmumbosauce@gmail.com.  And as always, thank you for always supporting me in all that I do! Have a blessed week!

Judah Gives You.... @TL_301 - Sicko


Judah Gives You........ Davy Fresh - Every Dark Night...



Every Dark Night... would be Davy Fresh's statement to hip hop that he can hold his own. With in house producer, The Product taking full control of production adding classic samples and lamenting it with its hip hop feel helps take Davy into a realm where he lets his audience into his story more than ever. The album has features from FKMG label mate, MioTiga, who make every appearance memorable as Davy Fresh, MIoTiga, and The Product make FKMG collaborations sound magical. This is album is a representation of what it means to dream and hope to inspire other dreamers and creatives.
