Kev Brown.......The Weekend Beat Tape

One of the dopest producers, Kev Brown has thrown together what he calls "The Weekend Beat Tape". Your probably asking yourself "who the hell is Kev Brown" and well you should kill yourself because he reps Landover and he is internationally know for the music he creates.

Wale...Rock Da Bells...Denver


Wale - W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E. (Rock The Bells, Denver) from 2dopeboyz.com on Vimeo.

Rico.......The Next Day!

Well.... I got this mixtape from this dude name Rico and the cover jive turned me off but like I do everything I listened and it suprised me greatly. Slim beat selection is dope and his cut and paste game is serious but the only thing that was a little off was his flow. You'll hear what I'm talking about. When I look deeper into the project I like it. A stand out track to me is " Cool as Pink". Check it out and let him know what you think!

Nando McFFLY.........FTDO EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW


1. How does it feel now that SNES is out? And what's the response?

 I feel WONDERFUL!!! I feel like that I can finally get my music out to my fans and the people who slept and or did crud shit to me. Now they're are sitting there as there friends listen to the mixtape like, "I hate this nigga!" Mostly my responses have been good tho. I got haters. That makes me feel good. lol. Never had those before so I'm very proud to say for every hater I have the harder I work.  
 
2. Why did it take so long to come out?

 For a few reasons. I had to relocate to Sterling because of personal problems. Also, I just didin't have the songs I wanted to use. If I wouldn't have pushed it back you wouldn't have got records like "SuperNikeNando", ect. But I feel like me just throwing it out instead of waiting was a good move honestly.

3. What has been happening in ya world?

 Well alot! I'm currently in the process of creating a new project. Not gonna talk too much about it because it's under wraps until it's done. I am starting a record label along with Mouse & Azizi Gibson. That should be in effect by the next project release & More shows with GCC in NYC.

4. What's in ya ipod?

 That Cyan project is crazy! I listen to it at work. I'm proud of him, we go way back he's doing his thing right now. P.I.R., Wale, Lyriciss, preHistoric, Azizi Gibson, Mouse, N*E*R*D, Kiss, Kid Cudi, Nirvana, Metalica. I just enjoy music, man. lol.

5. How do yo feel bout cats saying you sound like wale or lupe?

 Okay. Here's the thing, with the Wale thing, people don't understand were from the SAME area, THUS we kind of use the same grammer. That's like saying everyone from Atlanta sounds alike, you know? We have our own slang. That's all I have to say about that. Now the Lupe thing, I HARDLY listen to Lupe. I have both the albums but I do not what-so-ever see a comparison. I sound like NandoMcFlyy. and that's who I am. The outkast who took up for geeks and made my own terms.

6. What's ya plan for the rest of "08"?

 Continue to GRIND. Stack up until I'm where I need to be. Do more shows and continue to attempt to kill these radio stations until I get on.

7. Any local rappers you checking for?

 I'm checking for Mouse's new mixtape that should be CRAZY. Idk whoever has potential. I guess. lol.

8. Where do you hangout in the city? What's ya favorite place to eat in the DMV? What's ya favorite place to shop in the DMV?

 I mostly just ride on the metro and go from Largo to Va. I'll hit up The Blvd. for Panda Express and I hit Gallery Place for Chipotle. lol. But when I'm shopping I'll hit Central out Waldorf, Palace 5, C'mon & Stussy.

 9. How does ya life effect the music you make?

 My life effects my music in MANY ways. I'm LOW middle class. I've been homeless and some more shit. I've been through ALOT in my 20 years of living, I never had it easy. It's more to me than just rapping about fashion and being fresh, I'm doing this so my family can live better. That's why I work so I don't have to ask for nothing from anyone. I hate hand outs, because some people feel like they can take there time and bs around on you. But not me. I represent kids who have been picked on because they were different and never given a chance to show what there made of.

 10. One of the comments that was made when I posted ya mixtape was " he sounds angry, he sounds like he's trying to prove a point" Are you trying to prove a point?

 Always. I'm better than alot, yes I said alot of artist. Not from here in the world. But, I'm over looked. Once I get my foot in the door these assholes are gonna be upset. I'm making it hard for these youngins putting out that corny shit. And I'm not talking about Solja Boy because I respect dude. He doing what he has to do so he can be alright. But these other youngins and that corny CRAP! Come on! Give me a break!

11. Anything u want to say to the DMV?

Thanks to the people who downloaded the mixtape and Yemi for helping to promote it. Look forward to some ill music in the near future from me. Thank you DMV! I love you!!!

On my SOAPBOX!

I got a email today and it reminded me of why I do what I do for the DMV!
Most music bloggers post artist that are already hot and that's not helping out the artist trying to get hot. I want to be the person to break artist and introduce you to artist that you have never heard of before (from the DMV ofcourse). While other blogs continue to regurgitate the same music, pics and info....you know me I gotta be different and take it a whole different way! STAMP!! Love

Mugsy Malone- Somewhere to Be At

So a friend of a friend of a friend in a circle that spans back 6-7 years got at me about 2 weeks ago about the young homie Mugsy Malone. Youngin is in a dope situation with some major folks and the promo has begun. Here's his first street single (I want to say) called "Somewhere to Be At". Pretty solid, solid enough for HIPHOPGAME.COM to show him love. He's from the DMV and making major moves. Take a listen and let him know what you think!

His debut album "Probable Cause" is coming out March "09"

A few EXCLUSIVE pics from BAD BOY ENT. own Jonel Monae rocking in the DMV.

If yall don't know who Jonel Monae is well........KILL YOURSELF! She is dope, a little weird but DOPE. She was in the DMV for a small intimate show and you know I was there.







The show wasnt that bad. The music was right and the venue was cool but I was left feeling somewhat confused. I used to think babygirl was hott and wanted to drop it off in her but then when I seen her on stage walking around like a robot the entire show...It turned me off. As Vanessa Blue pointed out she didnt even say "Hello" or "Goodbye" to the fans. I was kinda creepy. Would I go see her again............Probably NOT!

If you're in NYC........

E One Letter.............

I have been hearing a lot about this dude "E One Letter" and I know he affiliated with them dudes riding around the city in that black and gold van selling them Kids Multiplication Cd's. Co0me on you have seen them. E One Letter..........Check him out!

What it be like........SIR AAH

Over the weekend I got a record from this dude name Sir Aah (Not sure how to pronounce the name) but his email was on point. I listened to the records and I'm not mad at it. It reminds me of the late 90's era and sounds a little outdated but that might be what he's going for and if so he achieved that. He has been grinding and I would love to hear more of his music.

Let me give you a quick recap of what he's done so far in 2008.
- Shot a video for my 1st single "Break Ya Waistline"
- Have the video on rotation in the UK, stations like Channel U, ZeeTV, GeoTV
- Won HomeJamz "Song of the Week" on WPGC 95.5 for 2 weeks in a row
 
Prior to 2008, he has had 22 songs playlisted on the BBC in the UK since 2004.

Let Me Learn You Something.........

I want to explain something to the DMV because I have been getting a lot of "E.P's" etc.... That are not E.P.'s

An E.P. stands for "extented play" and usually contains between 10-30 minutes worth of music which equates to 5-8 songs.  An L.P. stands for "long play" and contains between 30-80 minutes worth of music. By the way I jive introduced the DMV to E.P.'s again ( JUDAH x XO..Timeless E.P. had 6 songs) but anyway. Please know what your making.  If your sending me a project with 20 songs it's not an E.P. its a L.P.

New Record from BKS........


I don't smoke but this joint surely motivates me to go to the gas station, buy some flavored blunts and roll a.............well you get the picture.
