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!
