Already being called “a must download” (Gowhere/Chicago Now), this 7 track EP/mixtape features Sean Armstrong (aka DJ Face of 9th Wonder’s True School DJ’s) and our own E Major trading verses over production by the late, great J Dilla. The duo of Major and Armstrong wanted to release the tribute to the producer in February since it is frequently referred to as Dilla Month, being that it is the month Dilla was both born in and died in. Here’s the description from the Bandcamp page:
“We put this project together in the name of J Dilla because we believe that he was truly one the best artists to ever work in Hip Hop. Dilla has touched many lives with his music and continues to in his absence. He’s inspired a whole generation of musicians and this is our way of honoring him.. through music.
-E Major and Sean Armstrong”

DMV ARTIST: DJ Whoo Kid x RadioPlanet.tv present... Ti'Jean - Love & Rebellion: The Mixtape ...COMING 3.1.11!!!
"'Everything's Illuminated' best describes the moment that I'm currently in," Ti'Jean explains. "It basically the start of the whole journey, and it's special because it's the first song I recorded for the mixtape. It really set the direction for the rest of the project. It's very personal and honest."
The lead video for Love & Rebellion is the stirring "Black America," a play on Eminem's epic hit "White America." Masked 'presidents' convene with Ti'Jean in a stark, dimly lit room at the nation's capital, accentuating the
"I'm not afraid to try new things - there is no comfort zone for me as long as I'm true to myself," explains Ti'Jean. "The person and the artist are the same. It's a risk of course, but high risk equals high reward. Music is something that I will always live and die for. My reward is when people appreciate my art, period."

Here's a new project from 24 year old EmoPopRock sensation; Tangie the Great. With help from local giants such as Phil Ade (of 368 Music Group), Fat Trel (of Wale's The Board of Administration label), Whitefolkz (of Topp Dogg Hill), and more "All Types Of Love" is making a lot of noise in the streets of the DMV. Already gaining over 3500 downloads on day two, this debut mixtape speak for itself. Already attracting the attention of reporters from the Washington Post and Laurel Gazette and making it on 93.9 WKYS top MC list, it is evident that Tangie the Great is here to stay. Tangie offers a refreshing new sound that this area is not used to, but is in need of.

Da Phuture is the second artist to get burn and from 368 (Phil Ade to be first). Some indie artist and labels say "F*** Radio" and yeah that's cool but if you can get it on radio.....why not? Ok ok ok I know and we know its about relationships but the record your pushing has to actually be GOOD ENOUGH for radio. And the record by the Phuture is format ready and good enough for the radio/mix show.
The internet is only going to take you so far and as i know the radio can open you up to SO MANY MORE listeners you couldn't reach via internet.
GOOD indie labels are far and few in between and 368 is a GOOD one. Some other indie labels in the area, haven't and couldn't get their artist on the radio if they were tried paying (PAYOLA). But those labels will remain nameless because well......we are going to keep this post CLEAN!
I look at it like this if i dealt with a indie label and the indie label and we are NOT selling records (Which a lot of "DMV power house" (LOL) indie labels aren't) AT LEAST get my record on the radio....S***!!!!!
A quick testament....During the summer I was pushing my record Sundresses and Sandals and attending numerous radio meetings i realized that you actually have to have a GOOD-GREAT record for them to add to mix show. My record went up against Juvenile, Plies and Nipsy Hustle which i may add none of their records made the mix show list but mine did. No Money, No B.S. just a GREAT song (IMO) that made sense and was mixable with the format.
If you don't believe me check it out below
So my whole point for this post is to show respect to 368 and show that if you have a plan and make a good record you can get mix show spins. DC radio is supporting local artist more now than ever and id like to think i played a part in that with my record (Sundresses and Sandals) and of course Wale spins and others like artist like Phil Ade and Bear Witness. ****May i add we RULED the DMV summer with our records!!!!!!
And...I know a lot of you angry a$$ idiots are going to say "well he got raheem behind him" yeah that true but honestly Raheem doesn't have enough influence to get a unsigned artist into rotation....you have to have a good record combined with the co sign.
The whole funny thing about this is when wale was in the studio before his "signed" days he used to clown Ross for wearing fake j's and jewelry and now Ross is his BAWSE! Oh the irony of this rap s***!
