Young I- Best Theft Mixtape x Interview




1. What it do bro? How u living?
chilln cuz, same shit. tryin survive throughout this struggle

2. You been jive lowkey for a minute. What you been up to?
shit i really just been focus on life more than music. the reality is the game is overpopulated and oversaturated with boofenery. So you know i been jy focus on other shit. But music is where my heart is so i'm always going drift back to it.

3. We got the new EP popping fill the readers in on what's up wit it.
Well I’m sure erybody is familiar with the production team Best Kept Secret. I'm also sure a lot of people is also familiar with their unethical way of business. Numerous artists 
throughout the DMV area have been cheated out of their money and time on production only to find out the same beats are being resold to other DMV artist.

So being familiar with that and then on top of that, myself, YOUNG-i had a few personal verbal disagreements with tone p. myself, 1/2 of BKS. So i thought to 
myself how i can i address this lil issue and still be a voice for the people. So i came up with this slight EP right here. The Best Theft Secret. Some slight shit.

4. That's tough. So what was the process of getting this EP together?

Once i started to inform other artist throughout the DMV of my lil idea i gained a huge support. I had a whole team of artist willing to give me beats they purchased from Best Kept Secret for me to use. Most of these beats they had heard other artist on so they no longer could use the beat, even after paying they bread for it. Now for yall, this was perfect because those artist made this EP possible. Cuz i only had like 3 beats from BKS myself from working with them before Tone P. and myself ever....yea

By the time i was finished rounding up beats i had over 20 DMV artist submitted Best Kept Secret beats.

5. Yea it was getting bad. I had a number of artist come through my lab to record with the same beats.

You know i even had this 1 beat that i got, my cousin had it, Wale had it, Busta Rhymes, Birdman and Rick Ross had it, and then i turn around and hear it on a Dr. Pepper commercial. Grand Band. The shit is crazy. 

But even with that being said i never take anything away from their talent. But as a whole, we can’t tolerate no bullshit business in our movement.

So ye .... Best Theft Secret

6. What/who music u feeling coming out of the area.
Well i think we have a lot of new people coming out the cut with a lot of potential but as far as artist who i really can fuck wit. I'ma have to 
keep the list real slight. Honestly the only artist out the area i really fuck with on a consistent basis musicly is Chink Santana, Don Choo, and XO . Real inspirations to my music and the career that follows with it.

5. Where u happy with the reception of ya Southeast Anthem record and video?

Ye slim it was a long process. I first wrote the song bout a year and half ago. I had got locked twice that year. The second time was some real serious shit. I made bond...said I was going get more serious in this music shit. Came home, wrote the whole SouthEast Anthem. And ye ....the joint jus took off in the hood. I got with Skinny Corleone and then like a year after that the "dmv," started to respect it. I got nominated for 2 DMV awards and i came home with the 2009 DMV Award for best rap song for SouthEast Anthem.

That song jy solidified me in the dmv. Not too many artist can gain a hit in the streets of Washington, DC. The Anthem did that and without any major backing behind it. That shit was jy all word of mouth on some real shit. 

6. What is your purpose or goal for this tape?

Basically my goal for this tape is to just address the situation and be a voice for the many artist out there who didn't have the audence or the heart to do something like this. Maybe as I address specific issues in the DMV this would bring other true artist forward to address other issues. Because its a lot of bullshit going on in the area and we as artist have to stop sitting by and taking it.

7. Any other artist you want to collab with?

I was looking forward to getting Wale, Tabi, Big G on the SouthEast Anthem remix/DMV Anthem but we had issues with that. I do address the issues on 
my RUN THIS TOWN freestyle i should be dropping in a couple days. Other than that I would like to work with Chink and Don Choo....besides that I'm still 
waiting on some more shit with StrangeMusic.

8. What is your goal as an artist?

My goal as a artist is to bring the art back into the game. They say the revolution wont be televised but it will be heard. The power hiphop and rap has worldwide right now is unbelievable. Its going take more true artist and musicians like you and me to take our music back. With the right sound and the right backing, a nigga could change the world off this rap shit. 

9. You and I often talk about social issues as well as conspiracy and religious issues how do you combine that with the street side of ya music?

Good question. I think that's part of what seperates a rapper from a artist. A rapper can rap but a artist can give you real issues, social, sexual, anything. But shit you can relate too. Shit going on in your community. So myself being a Ward-8 residence you can always hear the social issues surrounded Ward-8 in my music. 

For instance when you purchase a limited edition double disc hard copy you recieve propaganda about your rights you have in DC with the police. Because like i said being in Ward-8 and anywhere in the DMV you going have issues with the pigs. So i figured why not give yall motherfuckers some type of knowledge next time they jump out on you, disregarding all your consitutional rights cuz they figure niggaz dont kno the law anyway. And we dont...but i could hip em though. Real issues, real artistry not just no bling bling shit.

10. What's next after this tape?

After this i got a slew of new mixtapes. And my debut album On Erythin i Love Mo. The album has been done since bout January. But its been in the mixing, mastering, marketing and business pipe for a while. So long that i'm thinking of going back and doin some new tracks for it. Maybe some Judah production, you never know.

Any last words?

Ye i just wanna jus let my people, my artist and my community know its time we make a stand. This EP is just a start of whats to come. Real niggaz unite. Bitch niggaz fall. We gotta stop letting these out of towners jump on the bandwagon. Take control of your city, and take control of your money. Simple as that.

**limited edition hard copies will be available to purchase through me personally. including The Inception mixtape in a double disc package**

HOW WHITE PEOPLE DESTROYED MIXTAPES

My name is Anonymous Music Guy. I do this for no personal gain or benefit of
self. This is just a personal weekly view of the music industry. Please pass
this on

Let's face it, white people today have destroyed the mixtape scene. They
have pilfered off of the black generation since the days of slavery, but now
it's a new era. An era of musical slavery. Mixtapes were once an outlet for
young people with musical energy to put out a product with out enduring the
costs of putting out an album. Mixtapes were a way for DJ's to broadcast new
and upcoming talent to the underground market with fans patiently waiting to
see who is next to blow. Now it's nothing but a pure bootleg market, where
non Black/Urban DJ's basically steal peoples albums and music and put them
out solely for profit and reputation.

We have guys like The Evil Empire, The Empire, DJ Smallz, Trapaholics, Big
Mike, DJ Drama and etc that are fucking the game to hell. These people have
no urban roots. They never lived in a "hood" and likely never endured a real
"struggle". They have no real care for this culture. All they care about is
there fat white pockets getting bigger and bigger off of each new "nigger"
that comes out. They don't break artist. They break artists banks. Literally
and figuratively. They put out mixtapes with no names to identify themselves
which is basically considered bootlegging. I even heard of one certain "DJ"
having a "hacker" on his team who goes into peoples Gmail accounts to steal
"exclusive" music. This one DJ recently took GRANDHUSTLE rap artist YOUNG
DRO's new album and put it out on a mixtape..... WHAT KINDA SHIT IS THAT?
How could you profit off of someones hardwork you did not pay for? You didnt
buy the beats. You did not cover the studio time so what makes you think you
can go out and bootleg there whole album and someone be cool with that? What
kind of shit is that? What has the game come to?

Then you have the supposed "Big Shots" like DJ Drama who give nothing back
to the black community. But it makes sense since he is not* BLACK*. I erk at
the sound of him saying "*NIGGA*" constantly. This guy has been supported by
so many artists and in return to the community he charges outrageous prices
to the people he supposedly supports. Homie does nothing but scream all over
music, I don't know how that makes you an "icon" that deserves 20 thousand
dollars to make a "mixtape". I'm sorry sir I'll pass. His last album did
nothing and went by quickly *with good reason*. Go back up north. Good
riddance.

The young black musician of today, with music dreams and major label
aspirations has to hope and pray that one day the BWM(*Big White Man*)
sitting in his chair will cut him a budget and give him the time of day. If
he ever gets that time of day, it's very much short lived for the simple
fact of the corruption placed in the music industry today. It has spiraled
and regressed into a piece of shit where young black people will sell there
souls for a little dollar.

The white man who profits will never care about
the damage that is done, I don't blame him. I blame the enslaved black
youth for not waking up.

Don't be a slave to your music, be a owner!!!

Artists have totally devalued there music and self worth in the music world.
Is there any coming back?? better yet, going forward?

Call me racist, call me what you want but WHITE PEOPLE have destroyed
mixtapes. 

Next week, how WHITE WOMAN have destroyed the Urban Magazine Industry

please pass this along.

Sincerely,
Anonymous Music Guy

Moses-Bad Guys Video




'Morgan-"Right But Wrong":


“A sheet of paper can never stay blank in my possession," hip hop artist Morgan answers whenever asked about her beginnings in music.

By far one of the most humble people you will ever meet, Morgan is a 23 year old female hip hop artist from Washington, DC.  A self-proclaimed “lyrical poet," Morgan looks towards the infamous greats for inspiration, but does not rely on their sound to create her own.  “I have artists that I look up to because I would like to be better than them one day. That’s what you’re supposed to do when you idolize someone, and they shouldn’t be offended, they should be flattered. I know I’ll be flattered in due time.”

With a pen and pad in one hand, and a microphone in the other, Morgan has undoubtedly prepared herself for the next step in her journey.  Cradling a keen sense of self, an unnaturally gritty approach and bare-bones delivery, Morgan is most certainly NOT your average chick...no matter how unhumble that sounds.

Morgan was recently featured on GetLacedOut.Blogspot.com, & MyMoodisMusic.com.  Her track "F U" was selected for a spot on Coast 2 Coast's "Indie Artist Spotlight" mixtape, and "Right But Wrong" was rated as one of the best submitted tracks by fans of WhoDatMusic. 

Morgan's second mixtape, "Unsolved Mystery" is available to download for FREE at DatPiff.com, Keyword: Unsolved Mystery or Morgan, and her upcoming mixtape, which has yet to be titled, will be out soon, so look out for it!

Feevaleo- "Don't Sweat the Cool"


FEEVALEO…  the rapper was born and raised in Baltimore Maryland, where the true meaning of “grustle” was arguably conceived; to survive in a city like Baltimore you must stay on your grind at all times and continue to hustle your way to the top, or you will become a victim of the environment. Since moving to the great city of New York about 6 years ago, he has graduated from St. John’s University with a bachelors in marketing, collaborated with some of New York’s most renowned rappers such as Jim Jones and Juelz Santana, and completed two bodies of work, Don’t Sweat The Cool and Moment of Silence. His Current Project,More Forks Than Food, is a socially conscience reflection on the life, times, struggle and “grustle” of those people that are most affected by the current recession. As he puts it “No matter what your situation may be, personally or professionally, we ALL gotta eat! That becomes a problem when there’s more forks than food.” Be on the lookout for More Forks Than Food this fall.
